The ’80s Action Heroes event is available now in Call of Duty: Warzone, and Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer and Zombies modes are currently free to access on all platforms so everyone can get these challenges done, even if they don’t own the game. Along with these challenges, there are also new POIs on the map in Warzone and new modes to try out in Black Ops Cold War. There’s a lot to see and do during this event, and it looks like it will last for quite some time. Once the event ends, however, the challenges and rewards will be gone for good. The same goes for the Rambo and Die Hard bundles too, so act fast if you want all the ’80s-themed rewards.

Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
