Last updated:

Game company Activision has announced that Season Five of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War will introduce a lot of new free content and the Double Agent multiplayer mode.

Season Five will introduce tons of new free content for the game like five multiplayer maps, the Flamethrower Scorestreak, new Warzone and Zombies Perks, and the Double Agent mode.

Just like it was leaked a few days ago, there will be new weapons that will be introduced in the game, the EM2 and TEC-9 and the new operator Kitsune.

  • EM2 (Tier 15) – The full-auto EM2 assault rifle comes equipped with a built-in low-optic zoom for improved accuracy. It features a slower fire rate with reliable range.
  • TEC-9 (Tier 31) – Extend out of close-range with the TEC-9’s improved accuracy, low recoil, and slower fire rate. A versatile SMG with solid damage output.

The Season Five Battle Pass will let players gain access to all 100 tiers of content including the new operator Kitsune. She is a Japanese self-taught cybersecurity expert and a world-class thief. With the Battle Pass, she can be acquired at Tier 0 right away. The exclusive Kitsune Operator skin will be unlocked instantly with the Battle Pass Bundle.

Earn the two weapons Marshal shotgun/pistol hybrid and Cane melee weapon by completing their game challenges or just purchase the Store bundles later on.

Double Agent is a new multiplayer mode with Operators having one of the three roles:

  • Double Agents: Eliminate everyone else or successfully set off explosive charges around the map.
  • The Investigator: Use clues to target suspected Double Agents as Wanted.
  • Operators: Work together to identify and eliminate the Double Agents before it’s too late.

There will be multiple players that will be assigned as Double Agents, who must sabotage the mission by successfully wiping out the investigating team.

New multiplayer maps and scorestreak:

  • Echelon (6v6): This brand-new map set in Devil’s Mountain in West Germany takes Operators to a damaged NATO compound where they must battle through the rain and ash in the aftermath of Perseus’ latest attack.
  • Slums (6v6): Deploy to Panama City in this classic three-lane map first introduced in Black Ops II. A central fountain invites long-range combat across lanes and plenty of aerial Scorestreak bombardments.
  • Showroom (2v2 and 3v3): Duck and weave between retail displays and kiosks in this small-sized map featured in Gunfight and Face Off. Get in your practice for later in the season when Showroom is featured in an upcoming Gunfight Tournament.
  • Drive-In (6v6, In-Season): Break out the popcorn for the return of this cult classic from the original Black Ops. Drive-In features close-quarters fights and powerful overwatch points, namely the big screen of the Galactic Drive-In, where snipers and other long-range weapons thrive.
  • Zoo (6v6, In-Season): Take a trip to Zoo, first seen in the Black Ops DLC pack Escalation. Battle through bear pits and aquariums and hop onto the monorail for a view over the targets below.

Burn ‘em with the Flamethrower
Immolate your enemies with the new Flamethrower Scorestreak. This low-cost option is great for boosting your score to the next Scorestreak, setting the opposition ablaze in the process.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Season Five with the new multiplayer mode Double Agent launches on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on August 12, 2021.
