The Haunting is an event featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone available between October 19th and November 2nd, 2021 during the Season Six of content for Black Ops Cold War.[1]

Overview

The Haunting featured several new modes and content for both games. Several operators bundles were also released, including a new Operator, Ghostface.

Multiplayer

Within Multiplayer, three new game modes were available: Infected, Prop Hunt Halloween and Scream Deathmatch.

Care Packages could also appear as Scare Package which took the form of an orange Care Package with a smiley face on top of it and a large black handle around it.

Zombies

Within Zombies, every enemy would appear with a pumpkin head. Killing enemies could also drop Jack-O'-Lantern loot. Those drops rewarded players with high-end loot such as Aether Tool, Wonder Weapon, Scorestreak Support, Ammo Mod, Chalice from Bronze to Gold to upgrade the Pack-a-Punch level of their weapons from Level I to Level III, and Armor from Level 1 to Level 3. Mimics could also appear as Jack-O'-Lantern loot.

Like Multiplayer, Scare Packages could be found in both round-based maps and Outbreak, with Scare Packages appearing every 5 rounds on round-based maps, and randomly appearing in every Region on Outbreak where crates could normally be found. In Outbreak, Scare Packages could also spawn on top of a Mimic hidden as crate.

A new game mode was also released for Outbreak: Hallows’ Eve Outbreak.

Warzone

Main article: Ghosts of Verdansk

A new mode was released in Warzone, called Ghosts of Verdansk which took place on a night-time version of Verdansk '84 called Verdansk Halloween. The mode worked similarly to Zombie Royale.

Trivia

  • During The Haunting, the lobby music for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone was replaced by A Cold Wind Blows, the underscore of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies map, Call of the Dead.
  • Two new songs played during Zombies gameplay:
    • "A Howling We Will Go" by Frederick Jason Kron from the MX369 Halloween Screams album, used as a starting and game over song for round-based maps as well as the exfil song for Hallows' Eve Outbreak.
    • "Halloween Nightmare" by Ronald Alan Mendelsohn from the MX369 Halloween Screams album, used as a starting and game over song for Outbreak as well as the song that plays during Hallows' Eve Outbreak.
  • When a Jack-O'-Lantern drop spawned, a laugh could be heard for a few seconds.
