Activision and Treyarch have started giving players two free bundles ahead of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 1 – here’s everything you need to know about what they include and how to get them
While Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War, which was set to bring brand new maps and integrate the game with Warzone, has been delayed to December 16, players don’t have to wait until then to get their hands on some new, albeit small, content.
Activision and Treyarch have made free two content packs available, the Field Research bundle and the Certified bundle, presumably in order to help tide people over until Season 1. Here’s how you can get your hands on both content drops before the new season starts.
Field Research and Certified Bundles
Both bundles include a number of different items to use in-game: five in the Field Research bundle and four in the Certified bundle. While these packs are specifically for Black Ops Cold War players, it’s important to remember that some of these items, like the blueprints and Operators, are available for use in Warzone as well.
- Field Research Bundle
- Epic Park “Scorch” Operator skin
- Epic Milano “Excavator” blueprint
- Epic reticle
- Epic Calling Card
- Rare “Collectible Tin” Weapon Charm
- Certified Bundle
- Epic Garcia “Barrio” Operator skin
- Rare FFAR “Ground Control” blueprint
- Epic reticle
- Epic “Can of Concealment” Weapon Charm
All in all, this is a pretty good deal, especially considering the Milano is one of the better SMGs right now. While the FFAR is nowhere near as good as it once was, it’s still an assault rifle with a high rate of fire, which makes it formidable against other players even after its nerf.
How to get both bundles for free
Luckily, players won’t have to do much of anything to get their hands on these bundles. According to Activision, both will be awarded to players who log-in to the game between December 8 at 10AM PST (1PM EST, 6PM GMT) and December 15 at 11PM PST (2AM EST, 7AM GMT on December 16).
To be clear, logging in simply means that you just have to open the game and clicking on the “multiplayer” option; playing a match isn’t required. Once you do log-in, the bundles should be in your account and you’re given the option to redeem everything before you even get a chance to go to the multiplayer menu.
Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Season 1 is scheduled to launch on December 16 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
