Leak reveals Alcatraz to return as ‘Rebirth Island’ in Warzone

A social media leak has revealed that Alcatraz is all-set to return as Rebirth Island in Call of Duty Warzone for more Battle Royale action.



Originally making waves in Black Ops 4’s Blackout as a Battle Royale map, Alcatraz appears to be making its return and is set to invade the Warzone as ‘Rebirth Island.

When the Season One roadmap was wheeled out originally, eagle-eyed users spotted some text that translated into Rebirth Island. Despite being a place you visit in Black Ops, Rebirth Island in this context is loosely based on the world-famous prison – Alcatraz – and is expanded to be a hotbed for battle royale activity.

We now have some potential confirmation of the incoming changes thanks to a leak that has made the rounds on Twitter.

Rebirth Island leaked

We’re still a few days away from the launch of Season One of Black Ops Cold War on December 10. But Adi Source on Twitter has been able to uncover information regarding the new season’s content.

The image, from data miners, shows the logo and feature image for Warzone’s new map. (Image will probably be taken down by DMCA soon).

Reusing old content is certainly not an unfamiliar concept to Call of Duty fans as the series has constantly revitalized many of its previous maps and placed them in newer games e.g Nuketown.

Warzone will not be getting a seventh season and will instead continue its legacy with the forthcoming launch of its service alongside Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

The rest of the content remains to be seen, but we’ll update you when we find out more.

Season One is set to begin on December 10, and information on what to expect will surely be released soon. Stay tuned.

Crazy Black Ops Cold War Zombies glitch gives players ‘God Mode’

Someone has managed to uncover a crazy Black Ops Cold War Zombies glitch that gives players ‘God Mode’ every time.



A sure-fire method has been found that renders zombies defenseless against you. One YouTuber has managed to uncover a crazy Black Ops Cold War zombies glitch that gives players God Mode in the game.

New bugs are always being found that can either break your game or give you a drastically unfair advantage. The newest glitch to become public knowledge is definitely the latter of the two.

Black Ops Cold War’s Die Maschine is an exciting zombies map filled with lots of variety, great shortcuts, and is generally a great time to be had. But if you want to manipulate the system to work in your favor, then read on for this mad glitch.

God Mode

If you’re unaware of what this entails, it basically means that the player becomes invincible and is immune to any form of attack that would normally result in damage. So it becomes obvious as to why this would be a sought-after gameplay modifier for some.

Thanks to YouTuber Caspahz, this is now possible in BOCW’s zombies mode. Caspahz had initially posted a video with instructions on how to carry out this glitch. But the information presented wasn’t 100% accurate. However, this has been rectified and he has now released a full tutorial video citing the things you need to do to essentially enable God Mode.

Step-by-step instructions

Here is what Caspahz suggests:

  1. Turn on the power
  2. Build the Pack-A-Punch machine
  3. Locate the parts for the Aetherscope
  4. With all the parts, head to the crafting table behind the Pack-A-Punch machine and assemble the Aetherscope, and pick it up
  5. Now shoot 4 of the 5 blue orbs that are required to spawn the coffin dance Easter Egg – it needs to be in the exact order that Caspahz shoots them, and make sure they disappear when you shoot them
  6. For the glitch, make sure the round is an Exfil round, kill the last zombie, and then interact with the Dark Anomaly
  7. Whilst still teleporting, you now need to shoot the final blue orb and make sure it disappears
  8. Now head over and pick up Doctor Vogel’s diary
  9. Give the Doctor Vogel ghosts his diary and make sure you are still teleporting out of the Coffin Dance easter egg
  10. Take your time and make sure the final ghost is still talking whilst the actual teleport animation occurs
  11. You should now teleport and the zombies will be running away from you and will pile up in certain locations

If you would like visual directions on how to properly trigger this glitch, then check out the Caspahz video below.

With the correct implementation of this advice, you should now be able to basically have free reign over what happens in your game of zombies. From Pack-A-Punching your weapons to finding secrets etc. Make the most of this crazy Black Ops Cold War Zombies glitch and become a literal God.

Black Ops Cold War: Best Gallo SA12 Loadout

The Gallo SA12 semi auto shotgun is a powerful weapon in Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War. Here’s the best loadout for it.



Best Gallo SA12 Loadout

Black Ops Cold War has a wide assortment of shotguns to choose from, and the Gallo SA12 is one of the most popular picks. Here is a loadout that makes it even more powerful.

Most Call Of Duty games restrict you to handguns and launchers for your secondary weapon slot. Black Ops Cold War has changed things up and by letting you equip shotguns in that slot as well.

There are several great picks in the game but the The Gallo SA12 (SPAS-12) semi-auto shotgun is particularly noteworthy. This weapon has been a popular choice for players since its debut in Modern Warfare 2. While it may not have the range of the game’s SMGs or assault rifles, it does have fantastic kill potential in close-quarter firefights.

Its high rate of fire and damage make it an ideal choice for close combat. You can use certain attachments to create a loadout that makes it even better.

These are the best attachments for the Gallo SA12:

  • Barrel: 21.4” Reinforced Heavy
  • Muzzle: Duckbill Choke
  • Body: SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • Magazine: STANAG 12 Round Tube 
  • Stock: Wire Stock 

The shotgun’s main strengths are its hip-fire accuracy and high rate of fire, so this loadout will complement those elements. The 21.4” Reinforced Heavy barrel will increase the fire rate even more while strengthening the damage it puts out. This way, you’ll be able to hold your own against anyone who runs up to you with an SMG.

You can widen the shotgun’s pellet spread by 50% with the Duckbill Choke muzzle so that you don’t have to ADS to hit your target. This comes with the bonus of hitting other targets within the spread radius as well. The hip-fire accuracy is boosted with the SWAT 5MW Laser Sight, which goes well with the muzzle. Now you won’t have to worry about having to stop and aim.

The only thing holding back the high fire rate is the small amount of ammo in your magazine. Adding the STANAG 12 Round Tube will make up for this by increasing the amount the Gallo SA12 can carry, and the Wire Stock slightly boosts the sprint to fire speed so that you can close in on your foes quicker.

This build will make you a killing machine with the Gallo SA12 equipped. Keep it ready for close combat, and you’ll be a force to be reckoned with.
