A lot of players have recently said that they have seen a strange blue light coming from underneath the frozen water of the dam at Verdansk. Along with this, they have seen a huge shadow in the frozen water moving slowly across the dam. The players who have noticed this are sure that the shadow has not been cast from above, but is surely an object moving in the water below the ice sheet at the frozen dam. There have been plenty of theories about this, from calling this a bug to calling this an easter egg.

Is the shadow foreshadowing a future plot point in the Call of Duty storyline?

This has been one of the most popular interpretations of this strange shadow and its accompanying blue light. A lot of players have suggested that the slow-moving shadow underneath the ice cover is a submarine. If looked closely, the shadow does resemble the shape of the submarine.

If this is, in fact, a submarine, then it could mean that this particular shadow foreshadows, or in the very least, is an easter egg of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the upcoming title in the series.

Does it foreshadow upcoming game modes and changes in Warzone?

This theory is pretty interesting. A lot of players think that with time, the dam will become a significant location on the map and that this submarine hints at the upcoming map change.

After the Season 4 update, the Warzone menu changed from showing the dam overflowing to it being completely broken open. Although the dam remains completely frozen in-game right now, players are sure that the dam will be flooded by next season and that is where the submarine will come into play.

Some players have suggested a theory that the blue light at the dam might hint at the addition of zombies in Warzone. This might be possible since some players said that they heard strange howling noises in the dam pipelines. It is not just the dams too, though. A lot of players have heard creepy voices and sounds of howling at the prison too.

Well almost everyone is sure that all these strange occurrences in-game is a hint at a zombie or infection mode. If that is true, then we have got to admit, it was a clever marketing move by Treyarch. In any case, the new strange features have made the game a lot more interesting.

Have you noticed the “submarine” yet?
