COD Black Ops Cold War only lets you play multiplayer and zombie modes with your buddies on the split-screen. Now, let us find out how you can use this feature.

Multiplayer & Zombies mode on Split-screen

As mentioned before, you can only play split-screen on consoles. Although it takes a couple of minutes to set up the split-screen, it has a few hiccups. For instance, both players should have access to Xbox Live or PlayStation network on their respective accounts. Failing to do so will result in playing only local multiplayer game modes.

1. Launch COD: Black Ops Cold War on your console.

2. In the top right corner, you’ll see the option for split-screen as, “Splitscreen: Add controller, Press X to join.”
