Haunting of verdansk :Everything you need to know about Halloweening in call of duty Warzone and Modern Warfare.
It’s October, which means its the season for limited time seasonal events in video games. The gaming world loves no holiday quite so much as Halloween, with its ample opportunities for monsters, zombies, costumes and what have you. In the world of Call of Duty its called “The Haunting of Verdansk” which, despite theWarzone-focused name, also applies toModern Warfare. Let’s head into what you need to know about the events, from start times to modes and guns
First off, the start time. While I’m having trouble finding an official source on ll update that if anything changes.
From a visual perspective, the main thing here is a bunch of paid cosmetics, including SAW’s Jigsaw and Leatherface from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre as skins, as well as in-universe villain named Dr. Karlov and a “Grim Reaper” skin for the already fairly grim reaper-esque Ghost.
We’re also getting a new JAK-12 shotgun, which the blog says has “enough firepower to pulverize an entire enemy squad into head cheese”. Which is…not all that specific, but it also has a 32 round drum mag, which gives it the largest capacity magainin for a shotgun.
Seeing as this is the Haunting of Verdansk, the biggest changes here are for Warzone. We’re getting a night mode, which is still lit by the moon but will still confer advantage to those that remembered to bring their thermals. There will also be some spooky things happening around there, and I’m particularly interested in seeing this ghost train. Night Mode is cool, but the real event here is Zombie Royale, where instead of going to the Gulag when you die you’ll be reborn as a zombie with increased speed, jumping, melee attacks and thermal vision. If you manage to kill two players and collect the syringes that drop off their bodies, you get a second chance to come back among the living.
There will also be “trick or treat boxes” scattered around that either contain a weapon blueprint or some sort of non-specific scare.
Modern Warfare is also getting some content, where every operator that gets three kills in a life will get a jack-o-lantern on their head. There will also be some other cosmetic changes like scarecrows on domination points. We’re also getting two new modes: the Juggernaut-themed onslaughter and Snipers Only, which is pretty self-explanatory.
