Warzone leakers hint at massive event that could destroy Verdansk

Call of Duty leakers have dropped some major hints about a possible Warzone event that could spell the end of Verdansk.

Verdansk in Warzone

A major Call of Duty: Warzone event scheduled for March 11 has been uncovered by a few leakers, and it will seemingly result in the complete destruction of Verdansk.

Warzone’s integration with Black Ops Cold War brought a ton of new weapons and modes to the battle royale, along with a brand new map known as Rebirth Island. However, this area wasn’t designed to replace Verdansk.

Players have been anticipating changes to game’s original map for months, and some new Season 2 teasers hinted that we’ll see Verdansk destroyed. Now, a few leaks have emerged that tease how this will go down.

Is there a nuke event coming to Warzone?

Call of Duty leakers WarzoneNewz and ModernWarzone have revealed a major event that is set to arrive shortly after Season 2 goes live on February 25. They both posted teasers of a massive explosion in Verdansk that will happen on March 11.

Ever since secret bunkers containing nuclear bombs began appearing in Warzone, fans have been speculating about a big nuke hitting the map, and there are many different theories about how this big destructive event will begin.

One rumor is that a ship that is approaching Verdansk will explode due to the Nova 6 gas it’s carrying, and this will annihilate the original map. That could mean that Verdansk is undergoing major changes, and players will have to rotate towards a new location.

Another theory is that a zombie outbreak could be the key to the destruction of Verdansk, as the undead will be making their return to the map soon. There are machines in Warzone that ask you to “activate zombies,” and these could be a clue.

We know that after Verdansk, Warzone will shift to the Ural Mountains. This location is the map for Black Ops Cold War’s Fireteam: Dirty Bomb, and was teased in the post-credits scene for the Firebase Z Easter Egg.

So far, we’ve yet to hear any official details from the Warzone devs about how this event will get started, but we can expect many more teasers and leaks as Season 2 comes closer.

New leak claims fan-favorite Black Ops maps arriving in Cold War Season 3

A fresh leak is hinting at some new, fan-favorite maps coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in Season 3.

Treyarch could be set to bolster Black Ops Cold War Season 3 with all-new map remakes if a reliable source is to be believed.

A new season of Call of Duty is always exciting as it means that a whole new bundle of content is on the way. It does reach a point where the current maps have been played to death, and the game could do with a fresh lease of life.

This is why this potential leak could be great news for players as not one, but two new maps could be on the way to Cold War Season 3 in the form of Echelon and Standoff.

Map remakes have not been uncommon in Black Ops Cold War as we’ve already seen the likes of Raid, Nuketown, and Express be included in the game.

It was back in January that a major leak had confirmed the intent to add 8 new map remakes to Cold War throughout its life lifespan. Some of them have indeed been added, and now it looks like we’re set for two more if a Tweet from TheGhostOfMW is accurate.

As with all rumors, they usually originate from somewhere, pretty much from a reliable source. So it’s not crazy for this statement to be true.

Both of these maps would be welcome additions to Cold War and we’ve even made our own list of maps we’d like to see appear in CoD: Black Ops Cold War in the future.

As with all big rumors of this nature, we recommend you take it with a pinch of salt. But leaks have generally been reliable for the latest Call of Duty game, and we’ll wait to see what else is coming in Season 3.

It’s not clear which part of the map is shown behind her.

It’s also not confirmed yet as to how the leakers found the images, whether it was through data mining of certain game files or from another source.

For now, Activision has not officially confirmed or commented on these images.

There has not been much reveals for Season 3 yet from Activision besides some teasers that Treyarch has started to post on their social accounts. More information is set to be announced as we get closer to the start date.

On the Warzone side of things, Raven has already teased some of the changes coming, including weapon balancing, skin adjustments, and more.

Warzone will also see a major event, which will begin on April 21 at 12PM PT.

Treyarch reverses some bans following Cold War Zombies Sail 630 Nuclear Bug

Treyarch have responded to Cold War Zombies players reports that they have been falsely banned after receiving the ‘Sail 630 Nuclear Bug.’

Cold War Zombies Sail 630 Nuclear Bug

Treyarch have responded to reports of Black Ops Cold War Zombies players receiving the ‘Sail 630 Nuclear Bug’ error code and having their accounts permanently banned afterward.

In a new update on April 16 on Reddit, Treyarch Community Manager has stated that they investigated the issue even further and have identified a number of bans caused by this bug that will be reversed.

He states that not all bans have been reversed, as some very in fact legitimate bans in the mode, but many have after a security enforcement review.

Foxhound commented on a Reddit post with the latest statement from the studio:

Hello! The Sail 630 Nuclear Bug notice is indeed a disconnect message as previously shared and now noted by your peers. If you are disconnected mid-match, this error has the potential to show up.

We have an update to share: recent account enforcements have been reviewed and, where appropriate, accounts believed to be operating in good faith have been restored. Accounts that included additional flags for exploits will retain their enforcement.

As always, we encourage everyone to enjoy Zombies on PC within the terms of service.

He followed up further after a user commented asking why they decided to “lie” initially. Foxy replied that he provided the latest information he had at the time, but after further investigations things changed.

We’ve always relayed the most recent information available at the time of postings. According to the data available to us, accounts that have retained their enforcement are verified to have broken the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Security and Enforcement Policy. Accounts believed to be operating in good faith have been restored.

He also reiterated that PC players are “safe” to continue playing Zombies in Black Ops Cold War.

As we mentioned above, you’re safe to enjoy Zombies on PC within the terms of service. No worries about going for high rounds!

Original Story:

In the early days of Black Ops Cold War, Zombies players were having their World Record runs abruptly ended by consistent crashes. Now, a new error code has been kicking Zombies players back to the menu, and they claim their accounts are permanently banned when they log back on.

Since April 2nd, the ‘Sail 630 Nuclear Bug’ has been crashing PC players’ Zombies games when they’re on high levels. Reddit user Korlesa was allegedly banned after receiving this code and posted to the CODZombies subreddit to highlight the issue.

In the post titled, “People are being falsely banned while going for high rounds in Zombies on PC,” Korlesa described how “after going 50+ rounds people are receiving a “Sail 630 Nuclear Bug” Error. Upon exiting to Battle.net we see that we have been permanently banned.”

Before the post was locked, to back up their claim, Korlesa compiled over 70 posts to the Activision Support page in which players reported they had been falsely banned after receiving the Sail 630 Nuclear Bug.

Korlesa summed up these reports highlighting what the majority of them had in common:

  • They were on PC
  • They were playing Zombies
  • They were on a high round (50+)
  • They received the same error (Sail 630 Nuclear Bug)

Treyarch’s Community Manager, Josh Torres, aka FoxhoundFPS, replied to the Reddit post. “I’m unable to assist with this issue,” he said. “All infractions undergo a thorough review process by the security team before enforcement.”

Black Ops Cold War Zombies

However, the original post and the CODZombies subreddit continued to be flooded with players reporting the issue and worrying if they’re safe to play. After a concerned Zombies fan asked if they should avoid playing the game until the issue has been fixed, FoxhoundFPS replied with a full statement.

We are aware that some players are seeing the Sail 630 Nuclear Bug message and then are unable to connect while seeing a ban message. The ban message is not a product of disconnect errors. For questions about enforcement policies, please visit this link.

I’ve spoken with our teams regarding the recent Sail 630 Nuclear Bug threads and reports, and here’s what I have to share.

Sail 630 Nuclear Bug: This error string is currently presented instead of the standard disconnect language when a disconnect occurs in the Zombies menus on PC. PC players would typically see, “Connection to the Blizzard game server has been lost. Please exit and try again. BLZBNTBGS000003F8.”

We encourage players to continue playing Zombies as per usual, which includes chasing high-rounds and personal bests.

After another user asked if players who have been banned after seeing the error message will get their accounts back, FoxhoundFPS reiterated his statement.

I stated in my post that the bans are not the result of the disconnect or the disconnect error. The recent enforcements are not bugs or errors.

Players that experience disconnects are not subject to enforcement unless they are violating the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Security and Enforcement Policy. As I have always stated, all infractions undergo a thorough review process by the security team before enforcement.

Players are able, and encouraged, to maintain or resume normal Zombies gameplay.

To summarize, Torres passed on players’ concerns to the security team, who then said that the Sail 630 Nuclear Bug is a standard error message unrelated to player bans.
