Return to the Call of Duty blog on October 18 for more intel about the upcoming Halloween celebration across Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

Modes Section
Scopes and Scatterguns mode icon

Scopes and Scatterguns, The Rebirth Of…!

Get up close and personal… deal death from afar… spend a lifetime reloading between bolts… the choice is yours! Scopes and Scatterguns returns to Warzone – with a new twist. 

Here’s what you can look forward to:

  • Rebirth Resurgence
    • This mode builds upon a map and ruleset combination that we already all know and love – Rebirth Resurgence!
  • Limited Loot
    • The loot table will only include Shotguns, Sniper Rifles, and Crossbows. Aim true, Operator.
  • No Loadouts
    • No free Loadouts Drops and no purchasable Loadout in the Buy Station either! Players will have to up their scavenging game and win with what they find!
  • New Starting Weapon
    • The 1911 (BOCW) isn’t exactly a Shotgun… so Players will spawn in with the thematic Marshal (BOCW) instead.

This returning mode will go live during the second week of Season Six on October 14th. Keep an eye on our Twitter for weekly Playlist updates!

  • Remember, the Black Ops Cold War download is not necessary if you are only playing Warzone, and vice versa.
  • Furthermore, for a smaller overall file size, Players can choose to uninstall/remove other data packs if they are no longer needed.
