TheOutbreakEvent BOCW+WZ.jpg

Main article: Outbreak (Cold War)

The Outbreak Event came during Season Two's launch, which coincided with the new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode called "Outbreak", which is a large-scale mode taking place on the Fireteam maps set in the Ural Mountains.


Main article: Vodianoy

Alongside the launch of Outbreak, the Verdansk map in Warzone received a new location called Shipwreck; a Soviet-era cargo ship named "Vodianoy", missing for decades, that had suddenly reappeared in modern-day Kastovia. The Vodianoy itself was infested with zombies, who acted hostile to all players present in the area.


The Outbreak Event had 9 challenges for Black Ops Cold War's Outbreak and Warzone, coming to a total of 18 challenges altogether. Upon completion of all Black Ops Cold War challenges, players would receive an Epic LW3 - Tundra "Gray Matter" blueprint, while completion of all Warzone challenges would reward the player with a Rare 1911 "Teal" blueprint.
