Activision has shared new details on the Shamrock & Awe event in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which is a limited time event only live from now (on PS4) through March 26 in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

The new Limited Time event has gone live in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 with the newest patch update. The event comes to Xbox One and PC starting March 19.

In a new blog post, Activision detailed some of the new content available in all three modes.

New Blackout Content: 

  • Were you worried that the Blackout landscape wasn’t looking green enough? Don’t be: Aside from the spring colors affecting almost all the foliage, the Shamrock & Awe event changes all smoke to an attractive green color. Whether you’re lobbing a grenade or looking for a supply drop, expect a vibrant new hue to all your favorite smoke effects! Not only that, but supply drop boxes get a shamrock-themed makeover too.
  • You also might want to start searching for magical bronze pot hidden throughout the Blackout map; destroying these, rewards you with a Pot of Gold’s worth of paint cans!
  • Leprechaun magic is on show in random locations throughout the map as well; Homunculus Leprechauns to be precise: These noisy, bearded imps dance and grant wishes; dropping a wide variety of goodies if you give them a poke, so engage them before your enemies do.

Zombies Additions: 

  • Now less of a wonder weapon, and more of a red-bearded leprechaun with a top hat and bad attitude, the Homunculus transformation for this event is one of the additions in Zombies mode. The other involves encountering zombies sporting a distinctly different hue around their sunken eyeballs. What rewards do they offer? It’s a “mystery”!


  • The multiplayer mode formerly known as Fracture is back and better than ever! Now known as Stockpile, enemies drop shamrocks (or dog tags once Shamrock & Awe is over), which you need to gather and place into your rainbow-filled Pots of Gold (or deposit sites). Expect this mode to continue once the festivities have come to an end.

And, Activision released a trailer for the new limited time event:
