Warzone’s The Haunting event is back, bringing Halloween to Verdansk ’84. Last year, Warzone night mode became a fan-favorite mode, and it’s returned this year but with a catch.

Many regard 2020’s The Haunting of Verdansk event as one of Warzone’s best updates. This introduced Zombies to the mode for the first time and introduced the fan-favorite nighttime overhaul to Verdansk.

Players were desperate to see Warzone’s night mode return, and it has with the Ghosts of Verdansk LTM. However, neither regular Battle Royale nor Rebirth Island have received the nighttime overhaul.

Warzone Ghosts of Verdansk night mode

To play in Verdansk at night, players will need to queue into the Ghosts of Verdansk LTM. This is the only mode that has been given the nighttime treatment and other modes such as regular Battle Royale, Rebirth Resurgence, and Clash have remained in the daytime.

The Ghosts of Verdansk temporarily turns Warzone into a horror game where Verdansk is shrouded in darkness and players must keep an eye on their Fear Meter to avoid jump scares.

There’s no confirmation that regular battle royale matches or Rebirth Island will receive a night mode during The Haunting.

Both of these maps have had night modes in the past, The old Verdansk going dark for 2020’s The Haunting event and following the nuking of Verdansk, Rebirth Island went dark for one night only.
