Leatherface And Jigsaw Coming in Call of Duty: Warzone
Call of Duty Warzone’s Halloween event is going to be awesome, The Haunting of Verdansk, is taking in some big baddies for big frights. On October 20, Warzone will get some new skins for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s Leatherface and Saw’s Jigsaw, with a bunch of new rewards, a custom map, and limited-time modes.
Check out the complete Haunting of Verdansk explainer available here, but let’s just take a minute to look at these absurd skins. These are the first licensed characters coming up in Warzone, and each come in bundles that have to be bought individually from the season’s battle pass.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre bundle will come with a Leatherface skin for the operator Velikan, and a “Family Heirloom” blueprint for the LMG “packed with a unique stock attachment that enables an operator to use the weapon like a chainsaw,” says the COD blog. Leatherface has to have his chainsaw, after all. Also in the package: a melee weapon blueprint that transforms it into a meat hammer and seven other themed Texas Chainsaw Massacre weapons.
The Saw bundle is somewhat the same, with a “Billy the Puppet” skin for operator Morte.
The bundle: It has that skin and “The Phlebotomozier Lethal Equipment piece, a special knife will dig into your enemies upon contact.” Sounds gnarly. There are shotgun and assault rifle cosmetic skins that get a Saw makeover, a truck skin, and five more awesome Saw items.
The awesome part of The Haunting of Verdansk update sounds like the new “Zombie Royale” mode, which turns dead players into zombies instead of transferring them to the Gulag. These aren’t Romero zombies—they have “improved speed, improved jumps, deadlier melee attacks, and with thermal vision,” though they can’t use guns. When players die they’ll leave syringes, and any zombie players who collect two of those syringes can turn back to humans and can join into the fight with their loadout.
Both the Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre game bundles will cost 2400CP ($20) when The Haunting of Verdansk is in full swing now.
