Black Ops Cold War calling cards confirm Warzone zombies mode

Zombies are returning to Verdansk, by the looks of things

An update preparing Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War for Season Two appears to confirm one of the most widely spread rumours in the Warzone community. Following the update, players discovered new calling card challenges which require you to kill zombies in Warzone. Yep, the undead are coming back to Verdansk.

While zombies have featured in the battle royale previously through a limited time mode for Halloween last year, these calling cards confirm that they are returning. Trawling through the calling cards, The Loadout has found four that mention both zombies and Warzone, alongside dozens of others referring to the new Outbreak zombies mode that is coming in Season Two.

The four calling cards are titled ‘Aim For The Head’, ‘One, Two Punch’, ‘Quick Elimination’, and ‘Shotgun Eliminations’. The requirements range from defeating ten zombies with headshots (Aim For The Head) to eliminating eight zombies “before the first circle closes” (Quick Elimination).

Due to a zombies experience in Warzone not being announced yet, we don’t know whether the undead will be player-controlled like in the previous Halloween event, or if they will be controlled by the AI and appear like in other zombies game modes. However, the calling card challenges seem to hint at the former, as they would be far too easy to achieve if there were hordes of AI zombies roaming Verdansk. We’ll have to wait and see to be sure, though.

With the cargo ship Vodianoy creeping closer and closer to Verdansk, new weapons coming to challenge the best Warzone guns, and zombies looking to make another cameo appearance, fans of the battle royale will have plenty to sink their teeth into in Season Two.

Season Two content goes live in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone on February 24 between 21:00 and 23:00 PST (February 25 at 00:00-02:00 EST/ 05:00-07:00 GMT).
