Black Ops Cold War Zombies Characters: MP Operators & more

Published

on

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies brings a a twist to the mode that is unique, and never been done before.

With the unified progression system and Battle Pass, Treyarch is taking the experience further with the characters. In Black Ops Cold War Zombies, rather than being restricted to certain characters to tell a story, the characters are tied to the overall game’s narrative.

Players can play as one of the new Operators available in Black Ops Cold War’s MP mode, or play as one of the new Campaign characters, including Sgt. Frank Woods.

For the first time in a Black Ops game, Zombies will blur the narrative lines between modes.

Instead of being locked to one of four characters, you’ll play as the Operators from Multiplayer… and even some familiar faces from the single-player Campaign, including Russell Adler, Lawrence Sims, and even Sgt. Frank Woods himself.

Catch up on the Black Ops Cold War Zombies Reveal by watching the Reveal Trailer and the new Intro Cinematic for Die Maschine.

New Firebase Z teasers reveal more information about returning Zombies characters

Treyarch has released more teasers regarding characters featured in the new Black Ops Cold War Zombies map, “Firebase Z”.

Treyarch have revealed new teasers regarding the upcoming new Black Ops Cold War Zombies map “Firebase Z.”

Today, January 22, 2021, Treyarch has released images detailing three characters in the current Zombies storyline.

One of these characters is a returning fan favorite from the classic Black Ops franchise, and two are brand new.

Doctor William Peck

Doctor William Peck is a man with a genius IQ, and the Program Manager at the Department of Defense, who seems to have attracted the eye of the Soviet Omega group.

According to spies, they believe he could be turned to the Soviet cause if offered the right monetary incentive and career opportunity.

When Firebase Z releases, we’ll be sure to see the fate of Dr. Peck following this message from Dr. Valentina from the Omega group.

Sergei Revenov

Captain Revenov is a disciplined follower of the soviet cause who has worked as a counter-terrorism operator and has served in the Caribbean, Central America, Angola, and Afghanistan. At the request of the Omega group, he was transferred as an operative that they could trust.

Due to his track record of excellence and service, he was the perfect pick for a man to carry out any orders.

Samantha Maxis

Samantha Maxis is an ex BND (German Intelligence Service) operative. Recently, she has acquired stolen Soviet intel about Projekt Endstation, the location of the Die Maschine zombies map.

Currently, the Omega group believes she is working with Requiem and the CIA to expose the inhumane work of the Omega group to the world.

For now, that’s all the intel from today’s drop. You can read more about Firebase Z, including the release date here.

Gunfight Tournaments could be headed to Black Ops Cold War

Black Ops Cold War’s popular Gunfight mode looks set to be bolstered by the return of intense tournaments to declare the ultimate duo.

Published

2v2 Gunfight action is about to become even tougher and more meaningful in Black Ops Cold War. One gamer’s CoD glitched and revealed a screen that suggested Gunfight Tournaments are set to return.

Gunfight has been a revelation since its inception in the 2019 Modern Warfare reboot. Focusing on close-quarters combat between two teams of two, Gunfight provides a random loadout that both teams have to utilize to survive.

Each round then boils down to sudden death circumstances and it keeps going – with new loadouts – until one team wins.

Modern Warfare eventually introduced tournaments that you could compete in and progress through to earn lots of XP and bonuses. Thanks to a new BOCW glitch, it seems like the concept will be returning soon.

Black Ops Cold War Gunfight Tournaments leaked

Some of the glitches seen in Black Ops Cold War as of late have usually been of the detrimental variety, including some horrific hit-registration issues and a thermal scope glitch.

But this new glitch, thankfully, casts a spotlight on something more positive. In the below image, Reddit user theManJ_217 is clearly in the process of finding a new game in BOCW. However, a random action results in a glitchy screen that blends both the matchmaking screen and a previously unseen Gunfight Tournament notice.

The nature of the image is a bit suspect because it is just an image, but it looks convincing nonetheless. It’s a rational idea, anyway, as Gunfight is continually expanding as seen with the recent Gunfight Blueprint playlist that was added.

Given that Gunfight was only added with the launch of BOCW Season 1, it would make sense to not rush all the content out too quickly.

Gunfight tournaments could likely be one of the marquee features of Season 2 and we may even see another variation of the mode in the future.
