Amongst all the new content announced for Cold War & Warzone Season 3, a mysterious event has also crept under the radar. “Hunt for Adler” promises rewards and even an Operator skin, and here are all the details on how to complete it.

Russell Adler has been the star of Black Ops Cold War since the game’s launch in November 2020. His scarred face, black shades, and glorious hair have made him one of the most memorable Call of Duty characters in years – he even got an exclusive skin in Season 2.

His story in Cold War has seen him come face-to-face with an evil foe called Stitch, and during Season 2 he was captured. Now, Season 3’s lore tasks players with finding him, and Black Ops Cold War and Warzone players now have to “Hunt for Adler.”

But what exactly is Call of Duty’s Season 3 special limited-time event?

When does Hunt for Adler start in Cold War & Warzone Season 3?

As of April 22, the Hunt for Adler is now live. Players have exactly one week to complete the designated challenges or risk losing out on this content forever.

It makes sense given the urgency of the season’s story. Meaning players will be on the hunt to complete the objectives to, in theory, free the tortured Adler.
