A minor change has been made to the Ghosts of Verdansk mode:
In addition, here is a recap of the changes that were released earlier this week:
Featuring the “Ghosts of Verdansk” limited-time mode, The Haunting in Warzone brings Verdansk back under nightfall. Completing The Haunting’s challenges will unlock the prototypical LAPA (BOCW) – the first-ever ranged weapon event reward – which will also have a unique Weapon Blueprint available in the Store alongside Halloween-themed Bundles.
For the full details about The Haunting event in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, check out the official blog here!
WARNING: Ghosts of Verdansk features frightening situations, flashing lights, loud sounds and unexpected shocks. Enter with caution.
Ghosts of Verdansk, a Limited-Time Mode
For this year’s event, we’re turning the lights down and the fear way up.
Let’s set the stage... Players become Ghosts on death but can redeploy as humans by collecting three Souls. Ghosts have all sorts of spooky abilities. Be the last team with a human left alive to win.
Here’s a closer look at what you need to know:
This mode introduces a new meter known as Fear, located on the bottom left portion of the HUD. As you play, manage your Fear level to avoid [REDACTED]. Once you hit 50% Fear, [REDACTED] will begin. The higher your fear, [REDACTED].
Fear increases naturally over time and when the following events happen:
Outside of experiencing [REDACTED], Fear also decreases when the following happens:
No more Gulag. Instead, as a Ghost, use your abilities to gather Souls dropped from the dead and redeploy back as a human. If you die as a Ghost, your Squadmates can still buy you back.
Ghosts have no weapons, but they have some supernatural abilities:
It’s all about survival... and spooky Ghosts, of course.
All Players, except direct Squadmates, can be attacked by Ghosts, but they do have a safe space to take solace in:
Keep your fear in check, use Sacred Ground, and ensure one of your Squadmates is left alive as a human to win Ghosts of Verdansk.
Keep your eyes and ears open. ☎️

Weekend-Exclusive Playlist - Iron Trials ‘84 Trios
Last weekend, we let you pick your 3 best squad mates. This weekend, you only choose 2. Time to decide who made the cut!
This Weekend-Exclusive Playlist went live earlier today at 10 AM PST and will remain live through Monday, October 11th, at 10 AM PST.
The same changes that were implemented for Quads last week will be applied to the Trios version of Iron Trials ‘84.
Below is a recap:
We want players to be able to use Tactical Sprint strategically without the need to choose between Auto Tac Sprint and the physical pain associated with repeated quick presses of the left / right analog sticks. The option to Single Tap from Run gives players the ability to use a single button press to go from basic speed to Tactical Sprint. The Single Tap from Sprint option allows players to opt to use a single button press to go from Run to Sprint, and then another single button press to go from Sprint to Tactical Sprint. Each of the available choices allow players to customize their button functionality and balance that against individual gameplay style and noise associated with player movement.
Weekend-Exclusive Playlist - Iron Trials ‘84 Quads
The trials are back… now with more friendships on the line!
Grab your best squad mates and drop back into Verdansk for three days of blood, sweat, and tears (of joy… or probably pain).
This Weekend-Exclusive Playlist will go live today at 10 AM PST and remain live through Monday, October 11th, at 10 AM PST.
The following changes are exclusive to the Quads version of the Iron Trials ‘84 mode.
Be sure to hydrate and good luck!
*The Weekend-Exclusive modes will replace their core Battle Royale squad-size equivalent from Friday 10 AM PST until Monday 10 AM PST.
