Campaign: Detailed Briefing

Development on the Black Ops 6 Campaign is managed by Raven Software, in partnership with Treyarch. Following the events of Black Ops Cold War, anticipate a dynamic and intense espionage thriller, a mind-bending story where you’re never sure who to trust, and what is real, all set against the backdrop of the early 1990s. With the Campaign occurring in the years after the Cold War, longtime fans will recognize that this timeframe is directly connected to the 1980s flashbacks revealed during Black Ops 2 – the aftermath of which has left our protagonists in perilous circumstances.

The Black Ops 6 Campaign takes place at a period of tremendous upheaval and turmoil. The Soviet Union was disintegrating after the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War. The US was the only remaining Superpower. The Gulf War dominated headlines. There was a developing mistrust in government – reflected everywhere across the music, television, and mainstream culture of the time.

A convoluted web of illicit activities, clandestine operations, and off-the-record missions, all part of a riveting narrative where you never quite know who to trust. This is the return of Black Ops.

Rogue Elements: Campaign Characters

Rogue Elements: Campaign Characters

Black Ops 6 combines the rich and gritty history of previous Black Ops titles with both returning and audacious new characters – and veteran Frank Woods acts as the through-line in our story. Across the Campaign, we see a different aspect of Woods following his traumatic injury at the hands of Raul Menendez. He’s been removed from the field, and you’ll interact with him as he transitions to a new role within the CIA.

His protege is Troy Marshall, who has been establishing a reputation for himself in the field. Marshall is a methodical leader, propelled by a firm moral compass. With a single-minded focus in overcoming adversity and a stubborn disposition that can sometimes verge on recklessness, it isn’t surprising that Woods and Marshall share common ground. Both males are collaborating with another new character in Black Ops 6, CIA handler, Jane Harrow. She is a born leader, fearless and brilliant, and helps manage their relationships within the agency.

Woods’ ability to operate in the shadows has always been immensely beneficial to the CIA – whether they want to acknowledge it or not. Meanwhile, Marshall can make difficult decisions in the field, as Harrow trusts him implicitly. However, when an operation goes awry, Woods and Marshall are suspended and ultimately compelled to go rogue…

They soon recognize they must trust each other to get to the root of what’s going on, and this must be done without any of their usual resources. They must create their own team of renegade agents, recruiting two compelling new characters in Felix Neumann, a technical prodigy, and Sevati Dumas, an enigmatic assassin.

With a mixture of new and familiar characters, a legendary wildcard also returns to the fight – the infamous Russell Adler is back! While his allegiances and motivations remain ambiguous, this erstwhile ally may have become a new and daunting adversary.

Areas of Operations and Encounters

Mission variety is a critical component in the perverted, covert universe of Black Ops 6. Raven Software has created individual missions from the ground up, with each one also offering diverse methods in the way you approach and implement them.

For example, one mission involves you infiltrating an old sewer system underneath an opulent casino in southern Europe, and these catacombs are one of many locations that are more ideal for stealth, where only the muffled yells or crumpled falls of the enemy can be heard, before you tactically reposition topside to pull off an audacious heist in the casino itself. Other areas are more appropriate for large-scale conflicts, such as a full-force assault on a palace in the Iraqi desert.

Within every mission, the Black Ops 6 Campaign concentrates on the methods you can employ to accomplish victory as well as replayability, giving you the freedom to navigate through them as you see fit. This naturally extends to combat, but even effects the conversations you have, as operatives negotiate, barter, and manipulate their way into a variety of various outcomes, some drastically different and dependent on the choices you previously made.

These outcomes can also change depending on how you utilize and interact with the abundance of environmental obstacles. Black Ops 6 delves into the time period with era-specific interactions and equipment, from lock-picking and computer hacking to keypad code-solving and other mysteries to contemplate.

This extends to the impressive collection of devices from the early 1990s, along with the Campaign-specific tactical and lethal equipment you can choose, always with the option to ratchet up (or de-escalate) the action. Expect several brand-new items as well as some returning favorites from the Black Ops universe: the iconic RC-XD (Remote-Controlled Explosive Device) is back, for when you need to cause an isolated detonation from a diminutive four-wheeler. Or perhaps you want to place a Tranquilizer Trap that chokes a combatant out when they step near it. Then there’s the Adrenaline Stim for unusually severe takedown encounters. Drop an enemy with more than just an adept hurl due to the Homing Knife. Or paralyze them in arcs of electrical discharge after lobbing in the Disruptor weapon.

These few examples give you an initial comprehension of the depth of gameplay the Campaign offers. But where does the Rogue Black Ops team go to ground, between these missions?

Welcome to the Manor

Your central base of operations between each Campaign mission is a remote and expansive manor house situated atop a granite precipice, overlooking a menacing, turbulent ocean. This magnificent edifice offers more exploration and character development opportunities than the Berlin Safehouse where you met during Black Ops Cold War. Intriguingly, the Safehouse itself has a secret history; it formerly served as a KGB Black Site which was operational during the 1950s and 60s, vacated some 30 years prior to your team’s arrival.

As the wind and waves batter against the stone walls of this regal mansion, you and your clandestine team have the run of the place. Step into the gardens for a moment of target practice, unearth secrets concealed in some of the mothballed chambers, and ensure you receive a briefing from the ever-acerbic Master Sergeant Frank Woods, who resides here after receiving severe injuries in the field.

After mansion explorations are complete, you’ll usually proceed toward the Evidence Board – last seen in Black Ops Cold War – now enhanced with additional intel and mission briefings integral to the Safehouse. Here players can observe the Campaign Outline, gain deeper insights into missions, and analyze evidence collected throughout past operations. It’s at the Evidence Board where the tactical planning occurs, as you piece together the mysteries within the storyline, before deciding on your best course of action.
