- "Brace for impact! The next stage in Stitch's grand plan is here: grounding the US satellite program. Race to complete challenges across Cold War and Warzone."
- — Message of the Day
It narratively focuses on the aftermath of Owethu "Jackal" Mabuza assault on the Jumpseat Satellite Ground Station and Vikhor "Stitch" Kuzmin demand of the Jumpseat Constellation to be crashed across Verdansk and Algeria.
With Season Four, a new mode was released in Black Ops Cold War for Fireteam, called Sat-Link, which requires players to capture Sat-Link stations to earn points. In Warzone, several Uplink Stations were added in Verdansk '84 in Battle Royale. The Uplink Stations require players to stand near to secure them. After capture, a satellite cache would crash in the vicinity. The cache could contain loot such as a Loadout Drop Marker, a H.A.R.P. Killstreak acting as an Advanced UAV for 90 seconds or an Armored Vehicle Drop which rewarded players with an Armored Truck.
The Ground Fall event had 6 challenges between Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, three for each game. Upon completion of either set of challenges, players would receive an Epic Magnum "Private Party" blueprint.
