Black Ops Cold War Fireteam mode revealed & trailer

Treyarch has revealed new details on the brand new mode coming to Black Ops Cold War MP: Fireteam: Dirty Bomb.

The team provided a first overview of this mode during the MP reveal back in early September.

This mode features 40 players on a larger map. The 40 players are broken into 10 teams of four.

Treyarch has now revealed the overall objective of this new mode: collect uranium deposits and detonate the bombs. Players have to locate the “Dirty Bombs” scattered throughout the entire map and deposit their found uranium into the bomb. Once the uranium is deposited, the bomb can detonate and help your team get the win.

Fireteam: Dirty Bomb cranks the action up to 11 with multi-squad insanity. A total of 40 players broken out into 10 teams will compete to take out enemies, collect uranium caches, locate Dirty Bombs scattered throughout the map, and successfully deposit their uranium into said bombs to detonate them and get the win.

But there’s more complexions to this mode than first known. Detonating a bomb causes radiation leaks to then effect the overall map, turning areas into hazards for all players. This affects Perks, movements, health, and more as the game progresses.

Each detonation causes radiation to leak out to large areas of the map, scoring points for the team that ignited the bomb and transforming huge portions of the map into radioactive hazards for everyone. The longer a player hangs onto uranium, the longer radiation sickness sets in. This affects Perk benefits, movement, health regeneration, and ultimately, your Operator’s life.

The mode also features a spawn system for this mode specifically in Black Ops Cold War MP. You can redeploy with a parachute, spawning onto a teammate or into the passenger’s seat of a vehicle.

When that life runs out, you’ll experience the Fireteam Spawn system unique to Fireteam modes in Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer. You’ll have to make a tactical choice in redeploying into the map by spawning onto a teammate not currently in combat, by parachuting right back into the action, or by spawning directly into the passenger seat of a teammate’s vehicle for instant gratification.

Fans will get to try this mode during Weekend 2 of the Black Ops Cold War Beta, which begins October 15 and ends October 19.

Treyarch also says that this mode will be playable on “two new large-scale maps.”

Here’s the details on the two maps:

  • Ruka (Fireteam) – The essence of Ruka is all about the feeling of running through a dense forest, darting between trees, and using the natural elements as cover and engagement opportunities. On top of that, we wanted to make sure there were good destinations mixed in, so you will find that the Spetsnaz GRU training grounds offer that up, in the form of the obstacle course, cabins, hidden bunkers, etc – it was all about balancing the natural with the man-made elements across the very expansive play space. Make no mistake, Ruka is very large and packed with dangers and opportunities, but we built it to be a sandbox of fun and discovery.
  • Alpine (Fireteam) – Alpine is the culmination of a few ideas – it be awesome to build a map on the side of a mountain, and it would be pretty awesome to fight in and around ski slopes, both things we had never explored together. The end result after combining these and lots and lots of playtesting, is a very fun, very unique large map that offers players the opportunities for them to pick their own adventure when they hit the ground. Want high risk verse reward? Check – try crossing, or running up the ski slopes/lanes, you might get sniped. Want to be a CQB master? Check – own the forested sections using the natural elements. Or do you want to roam between medium and long range? We got you, just rotate and roam the man-made structures spread out across the mountain side. Bottom line is that Alpine offers players a lot of ways to play and approach the map – they are in command, and to us, that is the magic sauce.

Try out the new mode in the Black Ops Cold War Beta Weekend 2 now!
