The hunt is on in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone as a new event has started. The Hunt for Adler challenge is live in both titles, giving players a chance to earn a legendary operator skin. Since the games are fully integrated, the skin is usable in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is here. The former brings a bunch of new content for Season 3, including new maps and weapons, while the latter just launched Verdansk 84, a new take on the now-classic battle royale map.

The new Hunt for Adler challenge is a little extra for players to earn. However, before players can get their hands on the event’s skin, some challenges need to be completed.

Unlocking the Hunt for Adler skin

In both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, the event is viewable in its own tab on the menu. To complete the challenge set in Warzone, there are three intel contracts to finish at the Farms, Summit and Factory locations.

For Black Ops Cold War players, there are also three challenges. Seven games need to be completed on the Yamantau map, along with 25 enemies killed once revealed by a Spy Plane, H.A.R.P or Field Mic. Finally, 25 enemies must also be taken down using the Assassin perk while on a killstreak.

The skin reward, called “Tortured & Rescued,” alludes to Adler’s part in the Season 2 storyline where he was captured by Stitch.

The developer has allowed players to pick which game they play to unlock the skin. This means the Adler skin can be earned by those who are solely playing Call of Duty’s free offering, Warzone.

Once all three challenges are completed for either game, the Tortured & Rescued Operator skin will become usable. The Hunt for Adler event ends Thursday, April 29, so make sure to complete the challenges before time runs out.
