For a long time, Call of Duty fans that love Zombies have had to delve into Cold War’s multiplayer to unlock new weapons. But the devs have now confirmed that Zombies-specific challenges will now be available moving forward in Season 3.
Given that Zombies started out as a side attraction in Call of Duty: World at War, the mode has come a long way. Each year it’s grown, getting bigger and better, with improved stories and maps. Its popularity is now so huge that Treyarch went as far as to create an open-world Zombie experience called Outbreak.
That being said, there has been a hint of resentment from fans who believe that they are short-changed when it comes to unlocking new weapons for CoD’s Zombies. Treyarch has confirmed that this gripe will be fixed in Season 3, with new weapon challenges.
Since Black Ops Cold War launched, Seasons 1, 2, and 3 have offered a lot in the way of new weapons and gear.
Destructive Streetsweeper shotguns, insane LC-10s, and pinpoint R1 Shadowhunter Crossbows have all become a part of CoD: Cold War lobbies. However, their appearance in games of Die Maschine, Firebase Z, and Outbreak are far more infrequent.
Usually, Zombies players would have to hop into the online portion of Cold War and fulfill the standard unlock requirements to use new weapons in Zombies.
Thankfully for Zombies fans, this is no longer the case. An Official Tweet from the Treyarch Twitter account informed fans of the good news.
There’s no word yet just yet on what the various challenges will entail, but the guarantee is that they will all be specific to Zombies.
All should become clear when Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone launches on April 22 .
