Looks like the holidays are hitting early this year! We’ve bundled up a ton of neat stuff, and you’ll be able unwrap everything starting on December 8 at 10am Pacific. That’s when we’ll kick off Winter Siege, the first community event for Call of Duty: WWII!

Let’s take a look at everything that Winter Siege is sending your way.


Carentan, one of the most beloved Multiplayer maps in Call of Duty history, will become winter-themed during the Winter Siege community event. The winter-themed Carentan is set during the cold and snowy winter of 1944 and is available for all players during the Winter Siege event only. There will be a Winter Carentan playlist throughout Winter Siege, and you’ll see Double XP pop up from time to time as well.


The standard HQ Quartermaster will enjoy some well-earned leave during Winter Siege, and a new Quartermaster will take her place. Captain Butcher, a former British Special Air Service soldier, will man the station and whenever he’s there you’ll know that special content is available. So be sure to check in regularly… but don’t ask him why he keeps his face covered. You don’t want to know.


With a new Quartermaster comes new gear! Log in each week during Winter Siege to grab yourself a free Winter Siege Supply Drop, and check out some of the new items like Weapons, Helmets, Calling Cards, Emotes, and more that will be available.

One variant of each weapon can be earned in-game for free via Special Orders from Major Howard. You can also obtain a unique Winterized version of each weapon as a Collection Reward, along with special Winter Uniforms. Be sure to stay tuned for more info!

Additionally, if you’re a Twitch Prime member (and Twitch Prime is free if you have Amazon Prime!) there’s even more free loot heading your way! Winter Siege kicks off the Call of Duty: WWII Twitch Prime Partnership that’s bringing you 6 months of Supply Drop Packs and an exclusive animated Weapon Camo. Head over to Twitch Prime for all of the details.


A fan-favorite game mode makes its limited time Call of Duty: WWII debut, as Gun Game comes to Winter Siege. This mode cycles players through a set of weapons, and it gets more challenging the further you progress. It’s a great way to try out new weapons, while you battle to be the king of the hill.

Gun Game will be available starting on December 15, and look for a 24/7 Gun Game playlist when it launches, along with Double XP and special Gun Game orders from Major Howard as well.


In addition to Winter Carentan, check out the makeover HQ will receive to find some frosty snow in the air, holiday lights, and even a tree. Use this opportunity to challenge players to 1v1 contests in the Pit, hone your accuracy on the Shooting Range, and test Scorestreaks while the snow falls. Eventually the weather will clear up, so enjoy it while it lasts!


Winter Siege will deliver a ton of fun to you, all wrapped up and ready to go. You’ll find yourself with a plethora of gifts as you play on the new Winter Carentan map, check out the Winter HQ, open up your free Winter Siege Supply Drops, compete in Gun Game, and pick up Double XP. However, Winter Siege is only here for a limited time, and the snow melts on January 2 at 10pm Pacific. We’ll see you on the (freezing) field!
