Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War season 6 begins this week

A ton of new content is coming to Activision’s Black Ops Cold War, with the Season 7 update. Landing this week, there’s a little something for everyone.

Closing out

It’s always little startling when the final downloadable content pack arrives for a Call of Duty game. That’s partially true because Activision keeps CoD games rolling til pretty close to the release of the next title in the franchise.

And that’s definitely the case with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. We’re on the edge of Call of Duty: Vanguard’s launch on November 5th, and yet here’s the final “season” of Black Ops Cold War’s content.

If you’ve been playing all along though, you’re in for a treat, because this last gasp for the game is looking packed.

As for what’s new in specific, there’s a load. Scroll on down to check it all out. But before you do, we’d like to let you know that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 6 hits for all versions of the game on October 7th, 2021.

Now, here’s what’s new:


  • New Points of Interest – Fissures crack open the Stadium and Downtown; strange and previously unknown WWII-era bunkers are revealed
  • New Gulag – A return to a familiar 1v1 combat arena
  •  Regiment Transition Begins – Update your active Regiment by October 5 prior to a freeze to prepare for shift to the new new Group Clan system

We’re only scratching the surface regarding the Season Six update for Warzone; in addition to content available in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, look for a Raven Software patch notes blog next week for details on new modes to come, an item pool update, and balance changes that will arrive with Season Six. And stay tuned for more intel regarding Warzone events, intel on anti-cheat, and Vanguard-related content in the weeks to come.
