Cold War & Warzone Season 3 Reloaded

We’re officially at the halfway point for Season 3 of Cold War and Warzone, and to keep things fresh for players, Treyarch and Raven have released a big mid-season update.

Warzone received 3 brand new points of interest, with the most exciting being Nakatomi Plaza located in Downtown. If you plan on dropping at the new spot, make sure you know how to get the CL19 Vault Key to unlock all the goodies inside the building.

Cold War‘s Multiplayer and Zombies modes both received substantial updates too, with new modes and plenty of weapon tuning for Multiplayer. Zombies fans will be receiving one of the biggest updates yet with a new fishing mechanic, a new Outbreak main quest, and a new mode called ‘Cranked 2‘.

Die Hardpoint is a brand new Multiplayer Playlist that is available right now for owners of Black Ops Cold War. Simply jump into the Multiplayer Mode from the Main Menu of Cold War and select the Die Hardpoint playlist to jump in!

But before you do, you’ll need to know what the brand new mode is all about.

Check out the official rules and features of the new mode below, taken from the official Treyarch website.
