Activision has peeled back the curtain on what to expect in Season One of Call of Duty: Warzone with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
In a massive blog post, the company has given fans information on the new Warzone map, Rebirth Island, the new Gulag experiences in Warzone, new weapons, and more for players to experience.
Call of Duty: Warzone x Black Ops Cold War Season One will also see the full integration between the games starting on December 16, with progression, Battle Pass, and more carrying between the two titles.
New Map – Rebirth Island
Warzone delivers with a mass of free content including an entirely new battle royale experience: Rebirth Island.
An illicit Soviet base raided and shut down by the CIA in 1968, during which Operator Russell Adler caught and forcefully interrogated the base commander Vikhor “Stitch” Kuzmin. The facility was rebuilt and recommissioned by Stitch in 1984 with one purpose: the creation and testing of the deadly Nova 6 gas.
Part prison, part chemical bioweapons manufacturing and testing facility, the entire island has dozens of locations to explore including laboratories, barracks, decontamination areas, and a hilltop prison block where unspeakable acts have been perpetrated.
Expect intense, close-quarter action with a similar playstyle to Warzone’s Mini BR mode as Rebirth Island comes to Warzone. Planned playlists include Trios and Quads with a lower player count than in Verdansk, amping up the action and intensity.
To celebrate this new Warzone map experience, expect an intense and rewarding limited-time event offering 16 challenges for those dropping into Rebirth Island for the first time. Earn Calling Cards, Charms, Emblems, Stickers, a special LMG Blueprint “Noxious”, along with additional secrets to uncover!
New Gulag Experiences
New Verdansk Gulag Experience (Launch Week)
It’s time to step out of the Gulag showers as prisoners of Warzone are now dragged to an interrogation room, strapped to a chair, and thrown into an all-new Gulag where the 1v1 battle rules are similar, but the arena is completely different! Watch from the spectator gantry, spraying, punching, or lobbing rocks at adversaries before entering the secret training facility below: A new yet instantly familiar face-off in a Nuketown facsimile built by the Soviets who constructed Black Ops Cold War’s Amerika Town!
The design is a makeshift replica of the original Nuketown map layout with both home interiors and backyard barricaded off, focusing the duel to a confined central arena. Prisoners must now weave through or around the parked bus and faux truck to meet their target or take a risk by climbing up one of the home’s awnings to get solid sightlines across the zone. As usual, the last Operator standing, or the one that grabs the central overtime flag, gets a second chance in Verdansk.
New Rebirth Island Gulag Experience (Launch Week)
There’s a second new Gulag coming to Warzone! Deep below the surface of Rebirth Island’s Prison Block, prisoners are dragged to an ominous new arena during traditional Battle Royale modes. This classified location has a grim history, as certain inmates were experimented on as part of Perseus’ plot to turn the tide of the Cold War.
This new 1v1 experience is centered around the chamber in question, with prisoners of Warzone starting on the end of one of two hallways that run parallel to the center room. Although these pathways offer a quick route across the floor, both of them have a metal detector that will go off whenever an Operator passes through, adding an additional element of strategy to this intense duel for survival. And remember: your fellow prisoners can still lob rocks down into the arena while they wait for their shot at a second chance.
New Mode – Resurgence
New Game Mode: Resurgence (Launch Week)
Think you’re dead? It’s not over yet: This new game mode for Rebirth Island focuses on respawning as a key to victory. Scavenge caches and gear up as normal, hunt down other squads, and focus on dropping every last one of them, otherwise they’re liable to respawn and seek revenge!
· The Gulag is closed (likely for some deep fumigation).
· After taking out an enemy, you’ll gain a moment of extreme clarity on where the rest of that enemy team is located. Now finish them!
· If you’re taken down, there’s no time for a Gulag battle in this game mode! Instead, watch your squadmates and hope they survive for long enough as the Rebirth Countdown reaches zero, after which you automatically drop back into the fray.
New Vehicle: Attack Helicopter (In Season)
Bring death from above to Verdansk and Rebirth Island with the Attack Helicopter, the latest addition to the Warzone vehicle fleet! This airborne menace is built to similar specifications as the regular Helicopter, but with one major exception: Mounted on both of the helicopter’s side rails is a belt-fed minigun that can be controlled by a fellow squad member. Finding an Attack Helicopter is not only a boon for those looking for a rapid travel option, but also raining down dozens of bullets on other squads without needing to use a primary or secondary weapon. Just know that this tiny terror is anything but subtle, especially when both miniguns are in use!

How to unlock Kali Sticks in Warzone & Modern Warfare
Warzone and Modern Warfare’s Kali Sticks continue to be a strong Melee Weapon, and our guide will show you how to unlock them.
Despite the constant influx of new Melee Weapons each season, the Kali Sticks are still one of the community’s favorite, go-to weapons to get stuff done. Here’s how to unlock the Kali Sticks to use in Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare.
Many players get the same joy from using Melee Weapons like the Battle Axe as they do a popular weapon like the Cold War AK-47. This is why the Kali Sticks are still a great weapon to use, and newcomers are always looking to use them.
However, especially with newbies, not everyone knows how to equip these powerful, bludgeoning tools.
How to unlock Kali Sticks in Warzone
To unlock the Kali Sticks in Warzone, players just need to simply meet the following requirement: “Using the Knife, get 3 Kills while sliding in 15 different matches.“
Now, from the outset, this may look like a difficult challenge, especially if you’re just playing regular battle royale.
However, with the plethora of different modes that Warzone and Modern Warfare have to offer, we’d recommend you attempt to complete the challenge requirements elsewhere.
Tips to complete Kali Sticks unlock challenge in Warzone & Modern Warfare
There are two ways you can go about this: either play one of Warzone’s other modes that feature respawning or play Modern Warfare.

Here are our suggestions for each game.
Modern Warfare Kali Sticks unlock tips
- Modern Warfare features smaller maps and is a much easier proposition to unlock these handy Melee tools. If there’s a playlist that features Shipment or Shoot House then it would be ideal.
- Try and customize your playlist to pick constant motion game modes as Search & Destroy and Cyber Attack are not suited to this challenge.
- Have Double Time equipped and make sure you’re constantly moving and sliding as you never know when an enemy might just turn up.
- Use in-game information such as UAVs and make sure you’re keeping on top of this data as you don’t want useful breaks like this to disappear.
Warzone Kali Sticks unlock tips
- You’ll need to play some of Warzone’s faster game modes such as Plunder, Payload, and Clash to speed this process up.
- Again, have Double Time as your first Perk to increase the duration of your Tactical Sprint.
- Unlike Modern Warfare, we’d recommend you choose your moments to slide as Warzone is generally more open, an opportunities will beore limited – be smart.
Hopefully, our guide and tips will help you to obtain a Kali Stick for each hand so that you can engage clobbering time on any unsuspecting enemies.

Major Warzone Ghost glitch breaks popular Perk
Players are reporting that a glitch with the Ghost Perk in Warzone Season 6 is causing major problems in the game.
Ghost is one of Warzone’s most popular Perks, thanks to its ability to hide the player from enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors. But a “game-breaking” Season 6 glitch is causing the Perks effect to stop working, leaving unsuspecting players exposed.
However, with all the spooky additions, the Ghost Perk has also been broken by a “major” glitch.
CoD YouTuber Immortal explained the new Ghost glitch in a recent upload to his channel.
Ghost is supposed to stop players from showing up on enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors, allowing them to stay hidden.
The bug appears to be making the effectiveness of the Perk with UAVs extremely inconsistent, with users being obscured one moment and revealed the next.
Equipment like UAVs ping every few seconds, revealing nearby enemies with each one. Immortal notes that as it stands, some pings will randomly reveal an enemy’s position, then the next will see them vanish again.
The glitch, which he describes as “pretty game-breaking,” is leaving squads players unsure of whether or not a rival team is aware of their presence or not.
Immortal also mentions that it is an issue for players using a UAV, as it’s impossible to track enemy movements if they are constantly appearing and disappearing from the map.
Ghost has been a divisive perk in Warzone for some time, but the way it is working at the moment is causing issues for every player.
Raven Software has confirmed they are aware of the issue and have a fix on the way, although they did not give a timeframe for how long it will take to implement.
It shouldn’t be too long before the developers release their fix for the Ghost Perk glitch and fans can trust they are being hidden 100% of the time.
As always, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL for all the latest Warzone updates.
