‘Kiss Confirmed’ brings Valentine's Day to… Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War?


Valentine’s Day Massacre

With February 14 just around the corner, various video games are receiving lovey-dovey updates to celebrate Valentine’s Day. And perhaps no one gaming brand truly embraces the themes of love, romance, and togetherness than Activision’s billion-dollar military shooter series Call of Duty.

Yes, love is in the air, even in the rat-a-tat-tat world of Black Ops Cold War, and from February 11 to February 18, players will be able to enjoy a special re-themed version of multiplayer mode Kill Confirmed titled Kiss Confirmed. In this variant, each time you pump your hapless mark full of lead, their twitching corpse will leave behind a candy-style Love Heart in place of their standard dog tags. D’aww. Helen Park is my Valentine…sigh

And, for the duration of the event, all players on Cold War and Warzone will receive Double Weapon XP on their entire arsenal. So if you’ve been saving up for that top-tier Milano 821 SMG for the love of your life, now’s the time to get it capped. Additionally, the Call of Duty store will feature a number of Valentine-themed bundles for sale, including skins, charms, and blueprints for exclusive weapons such as a sniper rifle called “Hidden Admiration.”

…Yeah, okay, now it’s just fucking weird.

In related CoD news, Black Ops Cold War‘s “League Play” mode is now live, giving players the ability to engage in four-on-four battles with specifically designed loadouts, in an effort to replicate the parameters of an official Call of Duty tournament. Players can fight their way up a new graded ranking system, similar to that of Black Ops IV.
