Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War & Warzone welcome Ghostface and Donnie Darko in The Haunting event

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War & Warzone has detailed its Halloween-themed The Haunting update, doubling as its Season Six refresh today.

The headline additions include two movie-themed limited time Operator bundles. There’s Ghostface from the Scream series and Frank the Rabbit from 2001’s Donnie Darko. Some of the existing Operators also get appropriately spooky skins, including a Necro Queen one for Portnova, a Disciple of Mayhem skin for Weaver and a Lumens skin for Maxis.

The Haunting update also brings along a new game mode for Call of Duty: Warzone. Billed as the sequel to last year’s Zombie Royale event, Ghosts of Verdansk sees dead players turned into Ghosts. They have no weapons, but do have access to Super Jump, Teleport and Spectral Blast abilities. Should a Ghost reap three souls from living players (by killing them) they can respawn back in the fight. The living can seek temporary solace in Sacred Ground spots on the map. However, these can be destroyed with enough force from the Ghosts.

Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer’s Nuketown gets a Halloween makeover. There’ll also be three limited time modes, including Infected, Prop Hunt Halloween and a brand new Scream Deathmatch mode. This new mode sees two players turned into Ghostface, and they must hunt down and eliminate the survivors who have no weapons of their own. Survivors can’t rely on hiding forever though, as their screams will give them away as the match goes on.

You can check out the full contents of The Haunting over on the Call of Duty blog. It runs from today until November 2, as the season winds down to make way for Call of Duty: Vanguard‘s release three days later, on November 5.
