Who are the new operators?

As you may have noticed in the cinematic trailer there were three new operators: Wolf, Riva and Naga.

New Game Modes

Only Gun Game will be available in launch week with the other two expected mid-season.

  • Gun Game: Kill and progress to a new weapon, complete the 20 weapon cycle first to win.
  • Stockpile: A cross between Kill Confirmed and Hardpoint, collect tags and deposit them.
  • Hardpoint: 10 squad multi-team hardpoint capturing hills which rotate every 2 minutes.

Outbreak Zombie Mode

Activision stated: “Outbreak takes place across massive play spaces throughout the Ural Mountains, packed with new enemies, team objectives, player rewards, and intel to discover on foot, in vehicles, or by jump pads,”

Zombie additions: Ammo mod Shatter Blast, field upgrade Frenzied Guard, two new skill tiers and 2 new vehicles.

New COD: Warzone Mode

Warzone isn’t getting an entirely new map as of yet but there will be two new game modes and new points of interest.


This will be landing mid-season and is all about getting to a chopper ASAP so no more fighting your way to the last circle, interesting. You have to hold on to a portable radio device that calls for exfil, hold on to it long enough to win. But, there’s a twist, when it’s in your possession you are marked on the map.

Rebirth Island Resurgence Extreme

Much like it is now but with 90 total players all being able to respawn if one of their team members is still alive.
