With season 5 around the corner, this is your last chance to level up.
Season 5 begins on August 12th, so the next week is our final chance to complete the battle pass and unlock all the remaining content before it disappears. Luckily, players have a double XP weekend to look forward to from tomorrow.
This double XP weekend for Cold War and Warzone applies to standard progression XP and battle pass XP. The promotional period begins August 6th at 6PM BST and wraps up on August 9th at the same time.
Close out Season Four with Double XP + Double Battle Pass XP all weekend, starting Friday!

A new season means a new battle pass, DLC weapons, and operators should be arriving for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, and maybe some more Zombies content as well. Known Call of Duty leakers The Cheeseburger Boys have suggested a Japanese folklore theme is likely coming with Season 5, with a female operator named Kitsune and some Japanese masks. Also, reporting that the new DLC weapons could include the TEC-9 pistol. Rumours should be taken with a grain of salt, but their claims fit the recently revealed image from Activision, which shows a new female operator with a very punk style and Japanese-themed tattoos.
Keep your head.

Given the Season 4 Reloaded update just gave us the long-awaited Mauer der Toten round-based map, it’s likely we’ll have lighter content for Zombies for the start of Season 5. We’re still waiting on two more perk drinks to fill the vending machine for Cold War’s Zombies, so maybe we’ll finally see the return of Double Tap or PhD Flopper perks with Season 5. We may see more Outbreak content to fill the void until the next round-based map. Maybe this new content comes in the form of a new map region or a new Outbreak questline Easter egg to keep Cold War’s Dark Aether story progressing.
The Season 5 teaser trailer (see below) gave us a phone call with Wraith, who tells the person on the other line to pack warm clothes because they’re going to Teufelsberg, a snowy forest location in Berlin, Germany. This Berlin location served as an American listening station for intercepting Soviet radio communications during the Cold War. This could hint at a new map location for Cold War’s multiplayer, but it can also tie into Warzone’s ongoing narrative for Stitch’s mysterious plan to disrupt things in Verdansk with sleeper agents.
“This is Wraith… the Verdansk tests are looking good."
After the destruction of the Jumpseat satellite constellation, critical data stolen from Yamantau is passed to an Operator with the unique skills to execute Stitch's endgame.

Warzone players will also likely receive an in-game event that promotes the upcoming Call of Duty 2021 title if history is anything to go by. Raven Software has also teased the introduction of two new Warzone exclusive perks. Alongside the new perks, Raven also announced that High Alert will receive an update that counters the Dead Silent field upgrade.
