Call of Duty Black Ops 4 introduced a new C.O.D.E. Jump Pack on July 16 that gives players a new wingsuit, parachute and trail, along with a dynamic PS4 theme that directly supports military veterans.

This DLC and theme are part of the Call of Duty Endowment program that’s designed to give back to the men and women who have served in the military.

All proceeds made from the DLC will go directly towards what it takes to help veterans transition back into civilian life, according to a blog post by Activision.

ActivisionBlack Ops 4 is still receiving frequent support.

How to buy the C.O.D.E. Jump Pack

If you’re in the United States or United Kingdom then you are able to pick up the pack right in the PlayStation Store. This content comes first to PS4 but will follow on Xbox One and PC.

All of the proceeds go directly to nonprofits that place veterans into jobs coming off their service. 

On top of the Jump Pack, we also get a chance to pick up the “Night Raid” dynamic theme on PS4. 

This theme is available for $2.99 / £2.50 but those in the United States have an option to donate even more money. Paying extra money will still get you the same theme so keep that in mind when you choose what to donate.

Unlike the C.O.D.E. Jump Pack, this theme is a PS4 exclusive so you won’t be seeing this on PC or Xbox One in the future.

Players have to go to ‘Settings’, ‘Themes’, ‘Select Theme’, and choose ‘Night Raid – Dynamic Theme’ in order to set this theme as their PS4 background.

The theme is designed by United States Marine Crop veteran Max Uriarte.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
