Shamrock & Awe Details

Our Shamrock & Awe seasonal event continues in Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies on PS4 and kicks off on Xbox One and PC next week, running through the month of March. This year’s Shamrock & Awe event delivers fun new thematic in-game experiences across all modes, including:

  • Multiplayer:
    • St. Patrick’s Stockpile
      • This event brings a new game mode with Stockpile, inspired by Black Ops 3’s Fracture with a St. Patrick’s Day twist. Bank enemy shamrocks and deposit them at the nearest pot of gold to claim victory.
    • Contraband Hurricane
      • We’re always looking to deliver fun new takes on our MP maps as we ramp up to the next Operation’s drop of new DLC maps, and Contraband Hurricane offers a distinct stormy weather variant of one of our favorite maps. Contraband Hurricane is available free to all players with this update.
  • Blackout:
    • Seasonal Map Makeover
      • A new springtime update has arrived in Blackout, including all-new lighting, upgraded dynamic grass, green-colored smoke, and other St. Patrick’s Day-themed changes.
    • Pot-o-Gold Stashes
      • Treasures await those who find the Pot-o-Gold stashes hidden throughout Blackout during the event. If you spot one, it’s your lucky day!
    • Homunculus Leprechaun Hoards
      • If you’re clever enough to track down one of these little guys dancing a jig out there, attack him and swipe his loot! As the old saying goes, leprechauns love tactical weapons with maxed-out attachments.
  • Zombies:
    • Green-Eyed Zombies
      • Those fancy eyes aren’t just for show. Look for these special zombies in Classic Chaos story maps during the event to uncover a special reward…
    • New Seasonal Easter Egg
      • Follow the rainbow to unlock a St. Patrick’s Day surprise.
  • Free Personalization Items:
    • “Precious” Gesture
      • All players unlock a new St. Patrick’s Day-themed Gesture by logging in during Shamrock & Awe.
    • “Shamrock & Awe” Animated Calling Card
      • Get your free seasonal animated Calling Card when you log in while the event is active.
