Call of Duty: Warzone & Cold War Reveal Halloween Content Featuring Donnie Darko and Scream

Halloween is less than two weeks away, and Call of Duty fans will soon have the opportunity to celebrate the season thanks to a new event in Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. This year, The Haunting event returns, with a tie-in to the upcoming Scream film, as well as content based on Donnie Darko. On October 19th, players will be able to grab the new Ghostface operator, while Frank the Rabbit will appear as a skin for Baker on October 24th. In addition to the skin, the bundle will include a new finishing move based on the movie.

To celebrate the collaboration, Call of Duty will be hosting Operation Live Scream on the game's official Twitch channel at 1 p.m. PT. Co-directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett released a new video teasing the stream, which can be found in the Tweet embedded below.

In addition to the Donnie Darko skin, other operators will receive Halloween-inspired skins in the game. These include a "Necro Queen" operator skin for Portnova, a "Disciple of Mayhem" skin for Weaver, and a "Lumens" skin for Maxis. The skins will arrive through themed bundles that will be available in the game's store next week. The Haunting event features nine challenges in each game, and completing each challenge will unlock different rewards. Completing nine in either will allow the player to unlock the LAPA SMG.

During the event, players can also check out the Ghosts of Verdansk LTM in Warzone. Like last year's event, this one takes place at night, but this year there's a new addition: a fear meter. This element sounds incredibly similar to the game Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, in that players start with a fear meter at 0%, but as certain events bring the meter up, players can start to hallucinate.

Meanwhile, Black Ops Cold War players can experience a new take on the Nuketown map, which has gotten a Halloween-themed makeover. Fans of slasher films like Scream will be happy to know that an LTM called Scream Deathmatch will be available, putting two operators in the role of Ghostface, as they hunt down the rest of the unarmed players.
