You will likely find the mode in the “Featured” tab on the game’s main menu.

Similar to the reveal event for Black Ops Cold War in the initial Warzone, the playlist is anticipated to remain available for a few days. This will enable those who initially missed the opportunity to partake in the experience.

What Is Operation Shadow Siege?

According to the Call of Duty blog, players will team up in four-person squads as they “join the ranks of Shadow Company, take on Konni forces, and secure chemical weapons.”

You can team up with three of your friends or queue up and join a random squad. Previous reveals suggest matchmaking will continue to function in the same manner.

The MW3 Operation Shadow Siege event appears to be taking place on the Zaya Observatory point of interest as soldiers must remove Konni forces in this location.

“This is an airborne to ground assault of the Konni-occupied Zaya Observatory.”
