As part of the second Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta, we got to try the brand-new multiplayer mode Fireteam: Dirty Bomb. Fireteam is its own game type and Treyarch indicated more modes will be added over time. In Dirty Bomb, four teams of ten players run around two maps collecting uranium and arming five bomb sites. When bombs detonate, that area of the map fills with radiation forcing teams to other locations. After all bombs detonate the map resets and players continue to accrue points until one team wins. The mode also has a number of drivable vehicles including dirt bikes, snowmobiles, and attack helicopters.
Dirty Bomb adds some systems from Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone battle royale mode. This includes crates containing killstreaks, an armor plate system, a ping communication system, functional doors, and a respawn system with both squad spawn and parachuting. In this video, we go over what is and is not working with Dirty Bomb.
Call of Duty: Blacks Ops Cold War releases on November 13 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It is also coming to next-gen consoles PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Series S.
