Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 pre-purchase benefits—What you need to know (4)

Available: Instantly (MWIII, WZ), at Game Launch (BO6)

Pre-purchase Benefit:

  • Vault Edition
  • Standard Edition (PC)

Getting by on his street smarts and razor-sharp instincts, Woods has always depended on only himself for survival. After enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps, Woods gained an extensive amount of fighting experience throughout the Korean War, and afterwards became a sergeant in the MACV-SOG during his time in Vietnam. One can only imagine the reputation he earned in combat, that eventually led to him being selected to join the CIA's Special Activities Division.

Woods is fond of pointing out that you can't kill him. To date, though many have tried - no one has been able to prove him wrong.

Now you can instantly unlock the Woods Operator Pack by pre-ordering or pre-purchasing any Digital or Vault Edition of Black Ops 6 .

  • Instantly receive the “Classic Woods” Skin. This Skin can be used immediately in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare® III and Call of Duty: Warzone™.
  • Unlock the “Zombie Woods” Skin, and the “Numbers Woods” Animated Skin by completing a Challenge for each Skin, in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare® III, Call of Duty: Warzone™.
  • If you don’t have access to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare® III, Call of Duty: Warzone™, stay tuned for more on how to unlock.

Woods Operator Pack to arrive in Black Ops 6: We’re excited to confirm that the Woods Operator Pack will also be accessible in Black Ops 6 at launch. For more information on Carry Forward content between games, see later in this blog.

Hunters vs. Hunted Operator Pack (Vault Edition Benefit)

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 pre-purchase benefits—What you need to know (5)

Available: Open Beta (BO6), Game Launch (BO6), Vault Edition Upgrade

Purchase or upgrade to the Vault Edition, and four infamous Operators from the Black Ops and Zombies universes are yours to own, each clad in their own impressive (and animated) Operator Skin.

Rogue Black Ops Operator Skins

Operator Park (“Oblivion” Skin): Exiting Oxford University to study para-military organizations, MI6 operative Helen Park is a methodical, ad hoc Black Ops team member. Now fully recovered from wounds sustained in an RPG attack, during a redacted operation in Havana, she is fit for duty and ready to rejoin the squad.

Operator Adler (“Umbra” Skin): Russell Adler was once the leader of a covert Strike team of CIA Operatives and was dubbed 'America's Monster.' Neither his current intentions, or whereabouts, are known.

Zombies Operator Skins

Operator Brutus (“Warden of Alcatraz” Skin): Last encountered in Black Ops 4’s Blood of the Dead, the Warden of Alcatraz is reborn again as a Black Ops 6 Operator. Reanimated by otherworldly forces, this custodian of Hell's most evil inmates will not - and cannot - rest until his charges have been safely returned to their cells. With electricity arcing across his heavily armored bulk, his hunt begins...

Operator Klaus (“Reborn” Skin): Elizabeth Grey's automaton will assure you that it is just there to help, but there is something deeply unsettling in its bearing. It could be the number of prior murderous killing sprees, masked by its enthusiasm - or simply that it seems unable to grasp exactly how fragile humans can be. Expect Klaus to be switched on at launch.

Vault Edition owners can expect to use any of these Operator Skins during the Black Ops 6 Open Beta, later this year.

Mastercraft Weapon Collection (Vault Edition Benefit)

  • The “Scourge” Blueprint for the Jackal PDW (Submachine Gun).
  • The “Brainstorm” Blueprint for the LR 7.62 (Sniper Rifle).
  • The “Unrepentant” Blueprint for the Marine SP (Shotgun).

A level of rarity above even “Legendary,” these special cosmetic blueprints are absolute works of art, hand-crafted by Treyarch’s finest weaponsmiths. Expect each weapon in the Mastercraft Collection to be a unique, animated, one-of-a-kind visually stunning design added to an already impressive five-attachment Weapon Blueprint.

GobbleGum Pack (Vault Edition Benefit)

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 pre-purchase benefits—What you need to know (7)

Available: Game Launch (BO6), Vault Edition Upgrade

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 pre-purchase benefits—What you need to know (9)

Console Cross-Gen Bundle and PC Standard Edition

PC platforms have Digital Editions of Black Ops 6, and these include the full game as well as the following pre-purchase benefits for $69.99 U.S. (Suggested Retail Price) or your regional equivalent:

  • Open Beta Early Access (Pre-purchase Benefit)
  • Woods Operator Pack (Pre-purchase Benefit)

PC Editions

For players using a PC, here’s the plan:

  • PC Editions: There are two different editions of Black Ops 6 to pre-purchase; the Full Standard Edition or the Vault Edition.

Vault Edition Upgrade (from Standard Edition on PC)

If you pre-purchase or pre-purchase the Standard Edition on PC of Black Ops 6, you can upgrade to the Vault Edition if the upgrade is on the same platform where you initially purchased. For example, if you pre-purchase the Standard Edition, you can upgrade to the Vault Edition at any time until the upgrade offer expires. The upgrade method varies depending on your platform: Upgrade directly through the Call of Duty in-game store or the platform store where you purchased the Standard Edition, for $30 (Suggested Retail Price) or your regional equivalent.

Carry Forward Content and Black Ops 6

We want to make sure that everybody starts fresh, together, as we move into an all-new experience with the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops 6.

Allowing everyone to experience the Black Ops universe the way it’s meant to be played, learning the era-specific weapons and gear, learning the gameplay innovations like Omnimovement, and keeping that signature Black Ops style is important.

Therefore, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Modern Warfare III content will not carry forward to the Black Ops 6 Premium experience.

The one exception is the Black Ops 6 Vault Edition Woods Operator Pack pre-purchase benefit. It is currently available in Modern Warfare III and will carry forward into Black Ops 6.

Carry Forward content for players of Call of Duty: Warzone will continue, with Modern Warfare II, Modern Warfare III, and Black Ops 6 content being integrated with the arrival of Season 1.

Additional Intel: Pre-purchases Available Now! Additional Benefits Incoming!
