Modern Warfare and Warzone get 21 GB patch as Black Ops Cold War integration begins •

The integration of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War into Warzone started this morning with a 21 GB patch.

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare patch brings Infinity Ward’s shooter to version 1.30. It kicks off with the new season one unified in Black Ops, Warzone and Modern Warfare.

There is also a new Battle Pass for Season 1. While you can progress with this by playing either game, no new Modern Warfare content will be available.

As for Warzone, the update adds Rebirth Island, a new map with a 40-player count and a similar playstyle to mini-battle royale. Based on Blackout’s Alcatraz, this map features a new Gulag experience.

The Verdansk map is still available, but now includes a new Gulag experience: a makeshift replica of the original Nuketown map layout with both the home interior and backyard barricaded, focusing the duel on a private central arena.

With the arrival of Rebirth Island, a new seasonal event begins with 16 new challenges. There is a new Rebirth Island mode called Resurgence. Here you respawn every 30 seconds until the last circle, or the last shift remains.


Of particular note is the addition of Black Ops Cold War weapons to Warzone. Here’s the list:

  • Six assault rifles, including the new Groza AR in Season One’s Battle Pass system
  • Six submachine guns, including the new Mac-10 SMG in Season One’s Battle Pass system
  • Four marksman (tactical) rifles
  • Three light machine guns
  • Three sniper rifles
  • Three pistols
  • Two shotguns
  • Three launchers, including the special launcher M79
  • A melee weapon

Warzone has Black Ops Cold War operators including Stitch, Vargas and Song, and the attack helicopter is now also in Warzone.

Meanwhile, the developers have removed the Juggernaut reward from Subway and Stadium’s Easter eggs, no doubt in an effort to tackle the unlimited Juggernaut exploit. The Strange Magic / Time of the Season watch is no longer visible through walls and players can click longer in gear packs.

The Warzone and Black Ops Cold War patch notes are on Treyarch’s website.
