Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is set to have a new zombies map, as well as other new content that players can expect in the near future.

As part of Season Four Reloaded, developer Treyarch has released a new roadmap for the game and it highlights a bunch of stuff that fans can look forward to.

The biggest headline is the new zombies map called “Mauer Der Toten” which will be released on July 15. It is a round-based map where Requiem agents will explore Berlin after being torn apart by a zombie invasion.

Wonder Weapon and New Crafting Item

In the upcoming update, players can craft the new LT53 Kazimir Grenade. This weapon of destruction, which was created by Doctor Anton Gersh, will suck the undead within its vicinity, neutralizing them shortly after.

Also, the Wonder Weapon, CRBR-S, is an energy-based pistol that fires an extra shot thanks to its orbiter repeater. It can be upgraded into three different variants by using special Mod Kits. These Mod Kits can be dropped by zombies in Mauer Der Toten.

Players can acquire the armament in one of three ways. They can either complete the quest in the new zombies map, beat the challenges at the Trials machines, or open Mystery Boxes until they get it.

New Game Modes

Capture the Flag is a new game mode where players must acquire the enemy’s flag and bring it back to their base to win.

In addition, a new Paintball Moshpit map will be added in the future. The map will introduce impact sounds and paintball visuals, so players should get ready to be messy once it arrives.

New Playlists

Those who want to try out the latest map on repeat will be happy to know that the developers will run a Rush 24/7 playlist at the launch of the update.

The update will also feature the new Cranked Moshpit that adds the Cranked Kill Confirmed and Cranked Team Deathmatch modes for the first time in the game.

Mid-Season Weapons

Back when Season 4 Reloaded was announced, five new weapons were expected to be added at any point during the season.

Three of those weapons are already present in the game - the MG 82 light machine gun, the C58 Assault rifle, and the Nail Gun.

The last remaining weapons, the OTs 9 submachine gun, and the Mace are expected to arrive soon. 

The OTs 9 will be available in the upcoming update. It can be acquired by either completing the in-game challenges or getting the weapon blueprint via the “Inside Job” store bundle.

The Mace will arrive a bit later in the season. Aside from completing in-game challenges, the blunt weapon can also be acquired by unlocking its weapon blueprint through the “Mystic’s Scepter” store bundle.

The July 15 update is massive, so if you want to find out everything there is to know, visit the game’s official blog.
