Latest Activision Blizzard News

Ghostface, Frank The Rabbit Coming To Call Of Duty Warzone And Black Ops Cold War

Oct 19, 2021

Ghostface, Frank The Rabbit Coming To Call Of Duty Warzone And Black Ops Cold War 2 minutes read The Haunting will go live tomorrow in both Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War, and this year’s limited Halloween event brings with it new modes, maps, Ghostface from Scream, and Frank the Rabbit from Donnie Darko. It is important to keep in mind what is going on within Activision Blizzard at this time regarding ongoing allegations about the work culture. The ongoing lawsuit from the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) against the company is over reported toxic workplace culture. The bulk of the suit focuses on “violations of the state’s civil rights and equal pay laws,” specifically regarding the treatment of women and other marginalized groups. To learn more about the proceedings thus far, including details listed in the lawsuit against Activision Blizzard, please check out our previous  coverage here . This year’s Haunting event will run from October 19 through November 2. During those weeks, players can experience the new Ghosts of Verdansk limited-time mode, which transforms the Verdansk Warzone map into a nighttime one. Dubbed a spiritual successor to Zombie Royale by Activision, “this limited-time mode has you fighting threats both human and unhuman.”  In the mode, you must manage your character’s Fear level (influenced by being shot at, camping, seeing dead bodies or ghosts, or watching teammates go down) by playing well and staying within the Sacred Ground circle. If you fail to do that, you’ll “succumb to the darkness” and become a Ghost of Verdansk. Ghosts, which you become upon death rather than an Operator sent to the Gulag, don’t have access to weapons and instead rely on the Super Jump, Teleport, and Spectral Blast abilities to bring fellow players over to the other side. You can do that while sporting one of the Haunting’s many event-specific Operator skins, including Ghostface from Scream, Frank the Rabbit from Donnie Darko, the Necro Queen Operator skin for Portnova, the Disciple of Mayhem skin, or even the Lumens skin for the Maxis Operator. These skins will be available in the shop for purchase for a limited time while the Haunting event runs in-game. Ghostface will be available for purchase starting tomorrow, while Frank the Rabbit won’t be live in-game until October 24. The other three Operator skins, which will be available as part of bundles that feature new weapon blueprints and more, will be available closer to Halloween, Activision says.
