New content is coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War as developer Treyarch Studios has launched the game’s latest update. The most notable addition is the Zombies Onslaught for all platforms.

The devs added a total of 23 maps across the Onslaught and Onslaught Containment modes. This includes Apocalypse, Cartel, Checkmate, KBG, and Nuketown ‘84.

Besides that, some changes are implemented in Zombies mode. For instance, the Rampage Inducer’s effects have been cranked up in all round-based maps. The spawn rate of Super Sprinters now starts at 20% instead of 50% based on community feedback.

Those who were having a blast during The Haunting event may have unlocked the LAPA SMG and Hammer & Sickle, but for those who haven’t, do not worry. You can still acquire them by completing weapon unlock challenges available in Multiplayer and Zombies.

For the completionists out there, finishing the “100 Percenter” challenge will reward you with the Animated Master Calling Cards for your dedication and hard work. The Calling Cards are also given retroactively, which means that if you’ve already completed everything, you can check your inventory at the Barracks to get them.
