Call of Duty: Weekly Briefings are back with the latest updates across Black Ops Cold War, Warzone™, Mobile, and more.

Call of Duty Weekly Briefings are back for 2021.

Set for release every Monday on the Call of Duty Blog, this series is the official source of news, playlist updates, and other information related to upcoming events in Call of Duty. In other words, this is your one-stop shop for week-to-week curated updates around the Call of Duty universe.

With all that said, here is what you can expect to see over the next week:

The Lead: Black Ops Cold War Mid-Season Update Coming January 14th

Black Ops Cold War Season One is getting some major reinforcements with more new content in Multiplayer and Zombies on Thursday, Jan. 14.

Get ready for a massive new arena when your squad drops into Sanatorium, a low-wooded hills area where your team will unearth the clandestine secrets of Project Golova. Jump into a fleet of land, sea, and air vehicles and take the fight to the enemy in this sprawling new map.

Also coming with this update for Multiplayer is a brand-new 6v6 mode Dropkick, a frantic game of hot potato where two squads battle for control of a briefcase containing nuclear codes. Be the first team to score 200 points and set off an explosive ending!

Over in Zombies, get ready to crank up the intensity in Cranked, a frenetic mode where every kill resets the timer counting down your eventual doom. Spend too much time without a zombie takedown, and you’ll explode!

For those on PlayStation, Zombies Onslaught will get a new map with Raid, along with new Dark Aether intel to discover.

And don’t forget, Zombies Free Access Week starts January 14 and runs through January 21. You can read more about this free access period here.

That only scratches the surface on what’s still to come in Season One; be sure to check back into the Call of Duty Blog and Treyarch’s official blog for more intel in the coming days.

What’s in Store for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone

Get ready for the Disavowed Assassin to be released in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone on Jan. 14.

This five-item bundle contains three Legendary items: a unique melee weapon Blueprint, a killer Operator Skin, and a dangerous Finishing Move known as the “Dangerous Approach.” It also includes an Epic Emblem and Calling Card.

Also available later this week is the Tracer Pack Indigo bundle, which contains two Legendary Blueprints – the “Great Pacific” assault rifle and the “Turbo Powered” SMG – that both fire indigo tracer rounds, as well as a new Emblem, Sticker, Charm and Calling Card. The Tracer Pack Indigo bundle will be available for purchase in the in-game Store on Jan. 17.

Call of Duty®: Mobile

This week marks the launch of the Counter Intelligence event, where players send top secret spies to infiltrate cities on a virtual map of the Soviet Union.

Activate spies in Multiplayer and Battle Royale, then deploy these clandestine agents toward the grand prize: Moscow!

Players will earn Epic rewards for their progress, with the new “Terrance Brooks – Deep Snow” skin for making it through all the cities, and an opportunity to earn the lethal “Outlaw – Artic Threat” sniper blueprint weapon for making it to Moscow.

Additional rewards include other rare and uncommon weapons and items, such as the Rare “Special Ops 1 – Burial Ground” skin.

This Week in Competitive Warzone

Gear up for another thrilling Warzone tournament coming to you on January 15: Warzone Ravenstorm.

The London Royal Ravens will be hosting a Warzone tournament with a $25,000 prize pool starting at 10AM PST/1PM EST on the 15th. Fans can tune in on YouTube or Twitch to watch all of the action.
