Black Ops Cold War Season One modes revealed
Treyarch has confirmed the new modes coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in Season One.
The new modes will include the fan-favorite mode Prop Hunt, alongside 2 brand new modes, Drop Kick and Combined Arms: Hardpoint.
Season One officially begins on December 16 with new content in Warzone, new MP content in Black Ops Cold War, and morel
Here’s a rundown from all of the new game modes:
The hilarious fan-favorite mode returns! Two teams alternate between being the Props or the Hunters every round. The Props disguise themselves as everyday items scattered around the various multiplayer maps, from a Soviet ticket booth to a baby grand piano. Props also have access to a concussive blast if a Hunter gets too close, as well as the ability to deploy clones to create confusion. However, Props also automatically whistle every 20 seconds, enabling keen-eared Hunters to hone in on their location.
A round ends once all the Props are found and destroyed, or at least one Prop survives at the end of the time limit. There are multiple rounds, meaning everyone gets a chance to hide and seek. The first team to take three rounds wins. Easy to understand, difficult to master, and always amusing, this party mode is a true test of keen eyesight, map knowledge, and outmaneuvering the world’s toughest Operators… as a piece of scenery.

This frantic game of nuclear hot potato features two teams each vying for control of a special and extremely important briefcase. The round begins with each team racing to the location of the nuclear briefcase and attempting to pick it up. Anyone grabbing the briefcase is automatically equipped with a powerful pistol, but it’s ideally up to the rest of the team to keep the briefcase-carrier safe. The team with the case gains access to launch codes, as well as an ever-increasing score for their team.
If you die while your team controls the briefcase, you will not respawn until your carrier has been eliminated and the briefcase has been dropped. If your team isn’t carrying the case, it must be flushed out and retrieved before it’s too late. Once one team reaches the score limit by controlling and owning the briefcase, orders to execute a nuclear strike are confirmed, and the round is won… in a highly explosive manner! The first team to 200 score wins.
Combined Arms: Hardpoint
Everyone’s favorite king-of-the-hill mode gets even bigger in Combined Arms: Hardpoint. The rules are simple: two teams of 12 fight for ownership of the Hardpoint as it rotates throughout the map, earning points for time spent inside the zone.
Much like its 6v6 version, victory in Hardpoint goes to the first team to reach the score limit, or to the team with the highest score when time runs out. Miami also joins the Combined Arms map rotation in Season One, giving players a total of four 12v12 battlegrounds to choose from.
Season One for Black Ops Cold War and drops December 16th. Prop Hunt will be the first mode added, with Drop Kick and Combined Arms Hardpoint coming later in the season.
