Warzone players that log in to the game will find that, while promoting Cold War, Infinity Ward has decided to add a special quest for all, which needs to be completed as a squad, called Know Your History.
The event will run for a very limited time, here's how to get it done, the rewards you'll get for doing so, and when you'll be able to complete it.

How to complete the Black Ops Cold War event
After you select the Know Your History event from the main game, you'll be launched into the Verdansk map you know and love, with a slight change -- all named POIs, are blacked out.
You'll have to complete several quests in order to finish the event:
- Collect Map Codes
- Secure The Key
- Crack The Map Code
- Wield The Weapon
Collect Map Codes
To collect map codes, all you have to do is, as a squad, get five kills and retrieve a code from each down opponent. Now, don't worry about getting sent to the Gulag, even if you die, you'll respawn on the map.
Secure The Key
Once you get five kills, a key will appear marked down on your map. Each time you try to do the event, the key will spawn in a different zone.
Crack The Map Code
After you get your hands on the key, a small area will be marked on your map, look for a cipher, and use the key to complete this part of the bounty.
Wield The Weapon
This is the one most players get stuck at, as the only clue the game gives them is some map coordinates for a quadrant within Verdansk, however, the map won't be highlighted this time around.
In our case, the blueprint we needed to find was in G8, all the way at the bottom of Verdansk, near the edge of the map.
Once you get it (Woods will give it to you), head over to the Verdansk Stadium. By this point, it won't matter if you make it or not, as the mission has been completed either way.
Black Ops Cold War event rewards
Warzone players that complete all steps in the 15-minute time limit will get a special emblem, a calling card, and a blueprint for the Bay of Pigs DMR.
