The Newest Community Event is Coming in Hot!

by Call of Duty Staff on June 14, 2018

Operation Heatwave is live in Call of Duty®: Black Ops III! The Heatwave brings new Weapons and new Gear, plus fresh Multiplayer Modes to bring the Black Ops combat to a fever pitch. Read on to see what’s new!
It’s a scorcher

With TWO new Multiplayer Modes, Operation Heatwave introduces a new way to rack up that sweet XP – including Double XP and Double Weapon XP in both Modes until June 29th, 10am PT. Jump in one of the following playlists during the Heatwave and get a brand-new experience on your favorite Black Ops 3 maps:


Snipers Only: If you like to take down adversaries from a distance, ‘Snipers Only‘ is for you. Go barrel-to-barrel with marksmen from across lanes, buildings and whole maps in this game mode that’s new to Black Ops 3!


Sticks and Stones
It’s the return of a fan-favorite mode from the Black Ops series – new only to Black Ops III. Spawn with the ShadowClaw Crossbow, Ballistic Knife and Combat Axe – the perfect loadout for a high-octane, no bullet skirmish. Pick off the competition with your silenced ShadowClaw, break bones with the Combat Axe or finish ‘em off with a well-placed stab.


Weapons hot
Operation Heatwave comes with new firepower. With these newly-released weapons your current loadout might need some refreshing. Check ‘em out:


The M14Blackjack’s come across a giant shipment of these hot commodities, and he’s getting rid of the whole stack quickly! With a balanced body, high range and steady fire rate, the M14 is an old standby sure to light up hostiles in every match. But they’re only around for a limited time, so grab yourself one before they go away on July 11.


The ‘Dragoon’ Sniper Rifle: The bolt-action, one-shot kill to the chest and above is ideal for patient snipers who catch their opponents out in the open. Take it to a ‘Snipers Only’ match and watch the Dragoon shine!

 

Plus, New Swag: Snag a brand new Free Heatwave Calling Card now until June 20 at 10 AM PT. Now, join in on the fun of Operation Heatwave. Heat up your game with one of the two new modes or try out the trigger of a brand-new Rifle. Operation Heatwave runs now through June 29th at 10am PT. Get out there and burn it up!
