Activision has announced a new BlackCell DLC bundle for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone, which will launch during the upcoming Season 5. The BlackCell DLC will include a wide variety of cosmetics, along with 20 battle pass tier skips (25 on PlayStation), and other in-game items. Most notably, this DLC will give players access to the Arthur Operator, which includes a dog companion named Merlin. And yes, he’s a good boy.
BlackCell will be available for $30 and gives players access to a new Tracer weapon blueprint, a dog finishing move for Merlin, a talking gun screen, six new weapon blueprints, eight additional Operator skins, two vehicle skins, and 1,100 COD Points–along with the Arthur Operator, who will utilize Merlin to take down opponents (so long as you have the finishing move equipped).

The DLC will launch during Season 5, which begins on August 2. PlayStation users who buy the BlackCell DLC will gain access to 25 battle pass tier skips, while those on other platforms will only get 20 tier skips. This is because Activision is still honoring its Call of Duty marketing deal with PlayStation.
BlackCell is popular with the Call of Duty community. Activision noted that Call of Duty Season 3, which launched earlier this year, was “driven by a strong community response to gameplay enhancements and the new BlackCell battle pass offering.” Given the success of BlackCell, it will likely make its return in this year’s Call of Duty game, rumored to be a sequel to Modern Warfare 2.
