What’s In Store This Week

This week, the original Black Ops incarnation of Grigori Weaver joins the NATO faction. That means players will get access to the Tracer Pack: Weaver Operator Bundle, which includes three Legendary Weapon Blueprints: the “Desolation” Assault Rifle, the “Desert Heat” SMG (both featuring Blue and Purple Tracer Fire), and the highly lethal “Krossbow Kollector” Special weapon.

In addition to Weaver’s default Operator Skin “Kremlin’s Eye,” players can also unlock the undead “Zombie Decay” Finishing Move complete with a zombie pet companion, as well as the “Courier of Death” Animated Emblem, the “Bloodshot” Animated Calling Card, the “Projected Status” Holographic Watch, and the “Raven” Charm.

Also in the Store this week, Zombies fans can get their hands on the Tracer Pack: Firestorm Maxis Mastercraft Bundle, an eight-item Maxis collection that will set your enemies on fire. Featured in the Bundle are the Ultra “Phoenix Inferno” Assault Rifle Mastercraft and the Legendary “Firebrand” Pistol, both featuring Gold and Red Tracer Fire and Fire Elemental Damage in Zombies. Aside from Maxis’s “Heat Seeker” Operator Skin, players will obtain the “Immolated Souls” Kill Tracker Wrist Accessory, “Combustion” Dirt Bike Vehicle Skin, “From Flames” Animated Calling Card, “Firestorm” Animated Emblem, and “Phoenix Gem” Charm. 

Keeping with the fire motif, players can get the Magma Fury Bundle featuring Knight’s Ultra “Magma” Operator Skin.

The Bundle also includes the stat-tracking “Heat Check” Wrist Accessory, “Magma Wave” Vehicle Skin, “Molten Helm” Emblem, and the devastating “Optical Illusion” Finishing Move.
