Not finished with Black Ops Cold War Zombies yet? Treyarch will be adding the new Outbreak Collapse LTM alongside Vanguard’s Season 3 update. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Zombies Outbreak mode.

Black Ops Cold War’s Outbreak mode landed with an immediate positive reception. Moving away from the claustrophobic round-based maps, Outbreak has players fighting in a huge, Warzone-sized area.

Alongside announcing new Black Ops Cold War content, Treyarch confirmed that Outbreak would be receiving a new limited-time mode later in April  —  Outbreak Collapse. Here’s everything you need to know about Cold War’s new Outbreak Collapse LTM.

Rather than the traditional round-based gameplay Zombies fans are used to, Outbreak puts players in a sprawling area where they need to complete objectives to advance to the next round.

The devs added the Outbreak Survival LTM back in 2021 and announced in an April 14 blog post that they are introducing its “spiritual successor” alongside Vanguard Season 3 on April 27.

What is Outbreak Collapse in Cold War Zombies?

Cold War’s Outbreak Collapse will arrive on all platforms, where players must “outlast increasingly intense waves for 10 minutes before attempting to exfil from a single Region.”

Players get the choice between two regions to Infiltrate and then must survive for ten minutes, with the difficulty ramping up every two minutes. After surviving these ten minutes, players must “race to the exfil point at the farthest possible position from your squad while a massive surge of zombies closes in on your position.”

To make it even more difficult, there will be an Orda “that knows exactly where you are,” and Forsaken’s Abomination enemy. The Abomination is a massive three-headed monster, so make sure you take out all three to kill it.

This isn’t all CoD Zombies fans have to look forward to, as there will be new Onslaught LTMs, a new easter egg, and Shi No Numa arrives in Vanguard Zombies Season 4 as a classic round-based experience.
