The teasers are rolling in for Black Ops Cold War’s Season 6 Zombies map, and the latest has revealed Requiem and Omega’s target.

Black Ops Cold War Zombies received some new content for Outbreak, including a new Black Chest World Event for the Season 5 Reloaded patch. However, fans are still awaiting the next round-based map.

Now that players are invested in the Dark Aether storyline for Zombies, players are excited to see where the story develops.

With the recent teasers alluding to where the next round-based map will be set, players now have more information on how the Black Ops Cold War Season 6 Zombies map will contribute to the Dark Aether Storyline.

Zombies’ storyline has always been a big part of the mode, keeping players engaged over the years, wanting to know what will happen next. With Black Ops Cold War, players have been following both Requiem and Omega, uncovering the secrets behind the Dark Aether.

The most recent teasers were posted by Treyarch on Twitter, and since they have already teased the location of the map, it’s only right that they tease some of the story. The teaser is a letter from Weaver detailing team Requiem of their next mission.

In the teaser, it seems the map’s story will be centered around a new target known as Sergent Kazimir Zykov, who seems to have a lot of history and knowledge about the Dark Aether and how to “defeat the Forsaken.”

Both Requiem, the good guys, and Omega, the bad guys, will be looking to capture the target, with the teaser stating that if Omega’s leader, Kravchenko, succeeds, they will lose Zykov for good.

So, the next easter egg for Season 6’s round-based Zombies map will be based around capturing Zykov and using his knowledge about the Dark Aether to defeat Omega.

First Cold War Season 6 Zombies map teasers features campaign location

Black Ops Cold War Zombies players will be intrigued by new teasers of the next Zombies map, which is set to release in Season 6.

Black ops cold war zombies map season 6

Treyarch has started to tease the next round-based Zombies map arriving in Black Ops Cold War Season 6 with various images and messages.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies has been through a fairly quiet season.

Even with the latest Season 5 Reloaded update, which introduced a new Black Chest World Event in Outbreak and a new Rampage Inducer for round-based maps, players haven’t seen anything about the next map.

That has changed recently, as the developers are finally starting to give players hints towards where the next round-based Zombies map with take place, teasing the location on Treyarch’s social media pages.

The last round-based Zombies map we’ve seen in Black Ops Cold War was Mauer der Toten, set in Berlin. The map was enjoyed by many, especially the easter egg, which continued the developing Dark Aether storyline.

This map, as well as Firebase Z, were both locations taken from the game’s campaign. It seems this trend won’t be stopping for Season 6‘s round-based map, as the hints and teasers show off a familiar location for those who have played the campaign.

In the teasers, players can see the secret military facility based in the Soviet Republic of Ukraine, the location for the campaign’s sixth mission, “Redlight, Greenlight.”

In the teaser, Ravenov has left Weaver a message saying, “Weaver – This is the place we must make our stand here. – Ravenov,” indicating that this will indeed be the next Zombies map for Season 6.

This wasn’t the only teaser they posted either. On Instagram and Facebook, Treyarch Studios posted two different locations from inside the facility that will most likely be important for the map’s easter egg.

In the first, Ravenov claims Kravchenko is planning to open a “special gateway,” which could potentially be the machinery seen in the image’s background.

Further, the image posted to Facebook shows another piece of interesting machinery, with Ravenov leaving a message that states: “Omega’s next operation is already well underway they have been constructing for months.”

From these teasers, it’s clear that we will be heading to the same facility seen in the campaign and that this map will continue the Dark Aether storyline and involve Kravchenko opening a special gateway.

We’ll have to wait and see how this will all develop once Season 6 is out. We will also get more information on this map when Season 6 is announced and a release date for when the map will launch, as it could be during the season.
