Call of Duty: Warzone will soon be given a huge shakeup as leakers have uncovered plans to release a boat load of new features in the future, including Zombie Royale, a Night map, and more. 

If there’s one thing CoD players know by now it’s that Infinity Ward are on the ball with new content. Just when things start to slow down for Warzone, another big patch to shake up the meta rolls out with a whole host of changes.


Since that major patch dropped on August 24, which included a King Slayer mode, might just be the first domino to fall in a series of game mode additions.

Warzone leakers have since revealed a handful of new mode names and descriptions, as well as a first-look at Verdansk after dark.

New Modern Warfare and Warzone modes leaked

This information was posted online by ModernWarzone, an account that has pushed out its fair share of reliable leaks in recent times with data mines.

Possibly the biggest of the mode leaks was Zombies coming to Warzone, which is something Treyarch tried out with Blackout last year. In fact, the walkers are usually only found in Treyarch games, period, so that would be an interesting move.

According to the source, the description will be: “Zombie Royale: Be the last team with a human alive to win. Players turn into Zombies on death, but can become human again by consuming fallen player’s hearts.”


That’s not all, either, as they listed off a further five modes coming to Warzone and Modern Warfare multiplayer. One that may catch the eyes of fans will be a full month of Shipment coming soon, as stated in the list below.

The leaks include the following:

Warzone leaked game modes

  • Pandemic/Outbreak
  • Armored Cargo/Truck Wars
  • Plunder: Fire Sale
  • Zombie Royale

Leaked night map for Warzone

Call of Duty has had some iconic night maps over the years, such as Hanoi from Black Ops 1, Chinatown in Modern Warfare, and many others.


Soon enough, the battle royale map in Warzone will be going dark – according to ModernWarzone. They posted the details alongside a fan-made version of the map on August 25.

The leak came right after Season 5 reloaded was announced, and their post said: “Nightfall Solos, duos, trios, and quads have been added to the files with the midseason update of Modern Warfare.”


There has been no time frame put on the release of any leaked content just yet, although the features found in the game files can’t be far away from releasing.

As soon as we hear official word on any of this rolling out in Modern Warfare or Warzone, we’ll be the first to let you know. Until then, sit back and watch as more leaks come in.

What’s included in the Black Ops Cold War Beta: modes, bonus unlocks, more

The Black Ops Cold War Beta is finally here. Download links are now live for those who pre-ordered the game digitally and Treyarch has released some new information about what the pre-release version is going to include. Here’s everything you need to know.

After Activision and Treyarch gave fans on PlayStation 4 a small glimpse of Black Ops Cold War during open Alpha, which ran only for one weekend and included a handful of content, the game’s Beta is now in full swing


Prior to the Beta’s launch, Treyarch released a lot of information about what would be included, such as the brand new mode that will be available during this pre-release period.

Cold War Beta modes

The modes that Treyarch are including with the Open Beta are similar to those found in the Open Alpha. That being said, there are two major additions that players of the latter didn’t get a chance to experience yet.


The first is VIP Escort, which tasks players with protecting and bringing a specially designated player from one side of the map to the other, without being killed. Players can be downed in this mode, similar to Warzone, and scorestreaks are disabled.

In addition, players will also be able to play the new 40-player mode Fireteam: Dirty Bomb. Information about this mode is scarce, however, we do know that it will pit four teams of 10 players against one another in a fight for uranium on a large scale map.

  • Team Deathmatch
  • Kill Confirmed
  • Domination
  • Combined Arms Domination
  • VIP Escort
  • Combined Arms Assault

There were a total of five maps during the BOCW Alpha, so all of them are expected to also be available during the Beta. Furthermore, Treyarch have announced that a new one called Cartel will also be added to the mix for both 6v6 and 12v12 modes.

  • New: Cartel (6v6 & 12v12)
  • Satellite (6v6)
  • Miami (6v6)
  • Moscow (6v6)
  • Armada (12v12)
  • Crossroads (12v12)

FOV Slider & Ping system

For the first time ever, a Call of Duty game will feature a FOV slide on both PC and console, as announced by Treyarch. This will allow players to adjust their field of view in order to get a wider look at their surroundings at all times.

“We’re extremely excited to bring the Field of View (FOV) slider feature to all platforms for the first time in a Black Ops game, and you’ll be able to try it out during the Beta,” the devs wrote.

That’s not the only thing making its CoD debut, at least as far as multiplayer is concerned. Black Ops Cold War will also see a Ping system added to MP for the first time, giving players a way to non-verbally communicate with each other.


Users will be able to “ping objectives, loot, locations, and enemies” for teammates during a match, which had been the case in Warzone but never in a Call of Duty multiplayer.

More details about how these two new additions will work can be found in our FOV Slider and Ping system guide here.


SMG Blueprint

Activision has announced that players who get to level 10 during the beta will receive a free blueprint when the game releases.

Unlike the Alpha, players will be able to level up in a progression system that’s designed exclusively for this version.

Treyarch explains: “Players can progress and rank up in the Beta-specific leveling system where loadout items, including new weaponry, covert spy tech through Field Upgrades, and badass Scorestreaks can be unlocked by earning XP.”

Like every other CoD beta, there are rewards that you can earn for the full game. If players are able to reach level 10 at any point during the beta, they’ll receive a free Mutual Animosity Blueprint for the Type 821, which is the weapon most comparable to the Uzi in previous games.

The Black Ops Cold War Beta is set to include two new modes: Fireteam Dirty Bomb and VIP Escort.


Treyarch previously announced the beta schedule, however, they once again clarified when everyone will be able to get their hands on it. Fans are currently able to pre-load the beta on PS4 and players on other platforms will be able to do so on October 13, 2020.

  • Weekend 1
    • October 8-9: PS4 early access
    • October 10-12: PS4 Open Beta
  • Weekend 2
    • October 15-16: PS4, Xbox One, PC early access
    • October 17-19: Open Beta for all platforms

As for what’s changing between the Alpha and the Beta, Treyarch released a massive set of patch notes on October 7 detailing all of the adjustments and improvements they’ve made since the game’s previous build.

All in all, this seems like a pretty packed Beta. Between the new Fireteam mode and the grind for max level, players should have a lot to do over the next couple of weekends.
