Black Ops Cold War Season 6 update is almost here to download, and here is all the information you need, including new weapons, new maps, zombies content and patch notes released by Treyarch.
The season 6 update, version 1.23, will release on October 7 and is bringing a variety of content across all modes, alongside a new battle pass and new bundles.
Multiplayer is getting a strong selection of content with the arrival of Cold War Season 6, with three new maps coming to the game, starting with Deprogram. This is a medium-sized map taking place in the fractured mind of Russell Adler, with red doors to transport you around the main, creating the potential for great engagements. This is considered one of the most unique maps in Black Ops history.
Next is Amerika, a Soviet training facility serving as the 2nd new 6v6 map, which even features Bubby from Burger Town! Lastly is Gluboko, a 2v2 and 3v3 map set in a KGB Headquarters.
Alongside this, there are new featured playlists with Deprogram 24/7 and Face Off Gluboko 24/7 (6v6), along with a brand new gunfight tournament with fresh rewards, and of course 20 seasonal challenges for players to grind out.

The exciting conclusion to the Cold War Dark Aether story is arriving, called ‘Forsaken’. To learn about everything we know about the map itself so far, check out our article here.
With a new map comes a new wonder weapon, named the Chrysalax. As its ancient schematic suggests, this weapon can take two different forms. The first is the Chrysalax Savager, an Aetherial axe that can kill multiple zombies in a single swipe and launch a spinning energy blade into the air.
By shifting the hilt into a front grip, the Wonder Weapon transforms into the Chrysalax Storm, a rapid-fire Dark Aether energy weapon. In this form, shots have a chance to mutate normal zombies into explosive Aetherium Crystal bombs for some added crowd control.
Also coming is the ARC-XD, a zombies version of the classic RC-XD, killing the undead with pulse attacks as it drives around. The Hand Cannon is coming as well. Craft this Scorestreak at the crafting table to deal massive damage to both normal zombies or Elite enemies.
The final perk is also coming, PHD Slider. Whilst many will be familiar with its effects from Black Ops 4, it has five-tier upgrades coming with it.
- Base ability – Sliding into enemies triggers an explosion. The size and damage increase the farther you slide before impact.
- Skill Tier I – Immunity to environmental damage while sliding.
- Skill Tier II – Increased slide duration.
- Skill Tier III – Immunity to self-inflicted explosive damage.
- Skill Tier IV – Increased slide speed.
- Skill Tier V – Falling from a large height will trigger an explosion. The size and damage increase the higher you fall.
In addition to all this, expect a new LTM in the Onslaught mode, and new seasonal zombie challenges to complete.
