Fan favorite party mode Prop Hunt returns! In this mode, teams will alternate between props and hunters as they try to win rounds.

The Pines

A large American style shopping mall lit up by neon lights at night is the setting for the new Black Ops Cold War map, The Pines, coming to Season 1

Located in a neon-drenched New Jersey shopping center, The Pines is a medium-sized, multi-level map at 2900 Churman Drive, just off the I-189. Set in 1984, The Pines is a throwback to the malls of the 80’s, with neon lights and plenty of areas for cover.

Fan-favorite map from Black Ops 2 returns as players will get to battle through the luxury, Los Angeles complex once more. The three-lane design makes it a perfect map for competitive, and we may see it return in the CDL for the 2021 season.

Season One for Black Ops Cold War kicks off on December 16. This update will also include 1000 new season levels, and four new prestiges to earn.
