Jan. 21 Patch Notes
January 07, 2021
New today in Black Ops Cold War: Raid + Crossroads Strike 24/7, the new Gunfight Blueprints and Dirty Bomb Duos MP modes, as well as this week’s Warzone playlist and weapon tuning updates from Raven Software.
We’ve also implemented new gameplay improvements and bug fixes across MP and Zombies, including updates for Daily and Season Challenges, crash fixes in Zombies, a mini-map visibility fix for the H.A.R.P. in Hardcore, and more.
Our Mid-Season update also arrives on Jan. 14 with more MP and Zombies content! Read on below for details on what’s live today, and what’s to come.
New Playlist: Raid + Crossroads Strike 24/7
Jump into our newest 24/7 playlist in two fast-paced 6v6 maps: Raid and Crossroads Strike. This new playlist includes Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed, and Hardpoint on both maps, with Hardcore Raid + Crossroads Strike 24/7 also available in the Quick Play menu.
New MP Modes: Gunfight Blueprints and Dirty Bomb Duos
We’ve also added two new MP mode variants today: Gunfight Blueprints and Fireteam: Dirty Bomb Duos. In Gunfight Blueprints, duos engage in 2v2 Gunfight matches armed with randomized loadouts featuring a collection of badass Weapon Blueprints. Grab a friend, start up a Gunfight match, and discover your new favorite Blueprint configuration.
Fireteam also gets a tactical new mode in Dirty Bomb Duos, where 10 teams of two players parachute into Alpine and Ruka to collect uranium stockpiles and detonate more dirty bombs than the competition. With half as many players playing by the same rules as standard Dirty Bomb matches, Dirty Bomb Duos offers a more calculated, less frenzied Fireteam experience. If you’ve been looking for a chance to put more Fireteam hours under your belt, check out Dirty Bomb Duos on Black Ops Cold War’s most detailed maps to date.
Mid-Season Update Begins Jan. 14
Next week, Season One gets even bigger with new content in Multiplayer and Zombies! Get ready to drop into a massive new Fireteam map with your squad in Sanatorium, and fight for control of the nuclear codes in the all-new 6v6 MP mode, Dropkick.
In Zombies, we’re turning the intensity up to 11 in the new Cranked mode, where every zombie killed resets the timer counting down to your demise. And in Onslaught, Raid joins the map list along with new Dark Aether intel for Zombies fans on PlayStation. This mid-season update arrives Jan. 14th, with more Season One content to come.
