Modern Warfare and Warzone 2 Season 6 The Haunting – Patch Notes, Leaks and More

The new season update is going to implement a ton of content for fans to sink their teeth into, and while the game is largely the same; there’s been a lot of balancing changes.

With it releasing on September 27th, theres going to be a ton of content to check out, but fans are more amped for the mid-season update, which is going to add The Haunting game mode.

Here’s what they’ve said regarding this.

Operators within the Al Mazrah AO, listen up! After the Hellmouth incident, we have alarming reports at increasing frequency of several eldritch hot spots appearing. You are to investigate these anomalies as Operation Nightmare officially begins on October 17, and the following recon has been obtained to offer a glimpse at the chaos to come:

Mission parameters: Entities have been detected throughout the AO, and the [[REDACTED]] of each encounter will be referenced on your Tac-Map. You must investigate each location and eliminate the “Most Wanted” Target, as well as any other hostiles.

Initial recon: A bounty has been offered on a number of [[REDACTED]] targets, and rewards for exceptional bravery may result in [[REDACTED]], as well as a Mastery Weapon Blueprint. Unconfirmed reports state that the following apocryphal activities have been observed:

  • An ancient tomb complex has been unearthed [[REDACTED]], hieroglyphs, and [[REDACTED]] entity known as “The Pharaoh” has been [[REDACTED]].
  • Witnesses report seeing strange lights and [[REDACTED]] in the night sky over [[REDACTED]], though unidentified anomalous phenomenon (UAP) has [[REDACTED]] or “orbs”.
  • Encounters with a spectral [[REDACTED]], seemingly accessible [[REDACTED]], with Operator vehicles necessary to [[REDACTED]], moving at a rapid pace.
  • Unconfirmed [[REDACTED]], further into the swamp, where [[REDACTED]] abomination known as the “Swamp Creature,” though [[REDACTED]] non-standard armaments.
  • Observers in the [[REDACTED]] region describe a glowing, wisp-like ethereal [[REDACTED]], multiple hostiles [[REDACTED]] “Evil Spirits.”
  • Outside the stone walls [[REDACTED]] platforms of particular concern, [[REDACTED]] the Altars of Lilith, [[REDACTED]] Nightmare Portal [[REDACTED]] codenamed “The Butcher.” This influence may extend to the Vondel AO.

The Haunting: Vondead (Vondel, Mid-Season)

Additional supernatural activities have occurred across Vondel, which has forced a complete evacuation of the city and surrounding area. A demonic incantation by a sorceress has unleashed a zombie outbreak, bringing nightmares to life as the canals of Vondead run red with blood. Up in the firmament, a rare Blood Moon hangs ominously in the sky, casting Vondel in an eerie, scarlet-tinged darkness.

Graveyard of the Witch, Altars of the Butcher

The source of this anomalous activity appears to be the Graveyard, which is a hive of summoning activity and should be infiltrated. However, many of Vondead’s points of interest show signs of a city overrun with the undead — from the burning vehicles to the barricaded and vandalized shops, to the bloodied tramway and train station. There are other alarming activities to investigate at the zoo, stadium, and elsewhere.

Demonic altars have also been erected around Vondead, seemingly a source of power for these activities and linked in some way to a feared entity known in myth and legend as “The Butcher.” Have you the skill and mettle to summon this hulking demon, descend into the underworld to face him in battle, and reap the rewards if you can dare defeat him?

Perhaps there are other, hidden rewards to find as you brave the blood-covered streets of Vondead?

The Haunting: Zombie Royale (Limited-Time Mode, Al Mazrah, Vondel, Mid-Season)

The infamous limited-time mode from previous iterations of The Haunting is back, with all-new innovations, as well as elements returning from past Zombies Royale experiences, including Rebirth of the Dead.

The dead walk the earth and are congregating in especially gruesome versions of Al Mazrah and Vondel (each a separate Zombie Royale experience). During a match of Zombie Royale, those Operators slain by others find the Gulag permanently closed, and instead, their corpses are reanimated as vessels of the undead!

Once you’ve been zombified, you’ll find several impressive abilities available to you as you attempt to savagely tear apart the remaining human Operators, all the while collecting special syringes with the purpose of ending your undead purgatory and returning to fight as a human. As the match progresses, expect an additional undead twist as the corpses of every Operator currently spectating the match twitch back to life, creating additional hordes of rotting foes to contend with!

Squads can still function with some of their Operators transformed into zombies, allowing for a variety of tactics if you work in unison. However, zombies slain in the continuing mayhem are eliminated from the match. The squad that defeats enemies both undead and living and finishes the fight can claim victory!

The Haunting: Vondead Lockdown (Limited-Time Mode, Vondel, Mid-Season)

Vondead is under Lockdown.

The limited-time mode is back and bloodier than ever! Those who experienced this limited-time mode during Season 04 know that this objective-based Battle Royale mode requires teams to bring in their Custom Loadouts from the drop, staying close and gaining points by capturing and holding zones around the map like a large-scale version of the Multiplayer mode Hardpoint. This time, however, prepare to play it under an ominous moonlit, night-time variant of Vondel!
