Haunted Hacienda: Jack-o’-lanterns, ghosts, and otherworldly ships offshore transform Hacienda into a Halloween fright as Operators battle through the manor grounds, the once lavish estate now a chilling spectacle of haunts.


Compete in Patrol Mode, Other Multiplayer Updates Ranked Search & Rescue

Originally featured in Call of Duty®: Vanguard®, Patrol Mode challenges Operators to capture and control a single point called the Patrol Zone that moves around the map. The objective only stops when the zone becomes contested, moving on again when there’s only one team within its bounds.

Operators score points by standing in the Patrol Zone, and if a zone becomes contested by an enemy player, the team with more players on the objective will continue to earn points. Group up, get on the point, and use greater numbers to keep the odds in your favor.

Prop Hunt Update: New maps and props are being added to Prop Hunt, including new rules and mechanics that alter the human and prop interaction from round to round, such as props pretending to be humans or using a Heartbeat Sensor to detect props.

Ranked Search & Rescue: Search & Rescue will be added to the pool of Ranked Multiplayer game modes. In this twist on Search & Destroy, eliminated players drop tags; that player respawns if a teammate grabs their dropped tag before the enemy does.
