This Call of Duty: Black Ops cosplay is plucked straight from the game’s flagship Zombies mode, and Misty looks as badass as ever thanks to westeros_cosplay.

There have been some iconic Call of Duty characters throughout the franchise’s history. Captain Price, Soap MacTavish, Alex & David Mason — the list goes on… 

But perhaps none can top this juggernaut of a cosplay by westeros_cosplay, who has created the perfect Abigail ‘Misty’ Briarton cosplay from Black Ops’ Zombies mode.

Misty first appeared in Black Ops 2’s Zombies mode on Die Rise.

There is no doubt that Treyarch’s Zombies mode transcended a genre of gameplay in the Black Ops series, with both the Aether and the Chaos sagas holding gripping narratives. 

Given how detailed each storyline is, players find ways to relate to the game’s characters — and perhaps none more so than Misty, with her do-or-die approach in both the BO2 and BO4 plot. 

Complete with a red flannel shirt tied over her black bra, faded jeans and brown work gloves, westeros_cosplay nailed their take on the American tomboy.

The cosplayer has also paid attention to detail in the close-up shots of the outfit, by adding freckles and appearing slightly battle-worn for extra authenticity. 

Alongside being particularly astute in their approach, the cosplayer included Misty’s iconic brunette, tied-up hair that is covered by the trademark baseball cap which she always sports.

Attention to detail. Westeros_cosplay hasn’t missed a trick with her Misty cosplay.

While this cosplay almost looks as if it was plucked straight out of the Zombies timeline, it does resemble Misty’s BO2 appearance more than her BO4 cameo. 

All in all, though, the British cosplayer’s efforts encapsulate Misty’s cut-throat nature — which will undoubtedly leave fans excited for Treyarch’s next iteration in their Zombies saga with Black Ops 5.

Black Ops Cold War PlayStation-exclusive Zombies mode revealed

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Onslaught players will be dropped into multiplayer maps and forced to fight the undead.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
