Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is heading for a cross-platform beta this weekend, prompting Activision, Treyarch and Raven to provide some info on Fireteam: Dirty Bomb mode.
It won't be long until Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War hits the shelves, as the launch date is set for November 13, but first things first.
Fireteam is a massive multiplayer mode that puts 10 four-player teams onto the biggest Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War maps, letting them duke it out for the winner.
Underneath the Fireteam banner, however, is the Dirty Bomb, a dynamic objective game mode that has Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Fireteams running around collecting uranium around the map.
The goal is to collect uranium and deposit it into Dirty Bombs, which pack a whole lotta boom for their size. In fact, they can wipe out entire parts of the map from play, thanks to radiation expanding from the explosion outward.
"Using all available tools at their disposal, including loadouts and vehicles, Fireteams must eliminate the opposition and detonate these bombs in order to win the match for their entire team", they wrote on the blog.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players get points for eliminating opponents, of course, as well as depositing uranium and detonating bombs. The Fireteam that hits the score limit first is the one that takes home the gold.
Activision stopped short of giving tactical recommendations, which is probably wise considering the beta will provide much more viable info on that.
