The Call of Duty: WWII Winter Siege event brings
the seasonal change to Multiplayer like never before. During the Winter
Siege event, all players will have access to Winter Carentan, a
snow-covered, winter-themed version of the fan-favorite Carentan map,
previously only available as reimagined Carentan to Season Pass owners.
The Winter Siege event also marks the limited-time return of Gun Game.
This beloved mode makes its Call of Duty: WWII debut
during the second week of the event as part of a non-stop schedule of
special 2XP playlists, delivering a perfect way for players to take a
variety of weapons out for a spin and keep their opponents guessing.
The Winter Siege event also winterizes Headquarters, with the beach
encampment taking on a seasonally appropriate appearance for the span of
the event, and welcoming an all-new Quartermaster, Captain Butcher.
Captain Butcher visits Headquarters bearing Winter Siege Division
uniforms, cosmetic items and weapon variants. Players can earn a variant
of each new weapon for free via Special Orders from Major Howard (Orders
will be rotated daily to allow players to unlock a variant of each new
weapon for free). Other rarity variants of these weapons are available
through Collection Bounties, or in Winter Siege Supply Drops. Winter
Siege Supply Drops can be earned for free simply by playing Call of
