Moving around the map quickly is essential to any first-person shooter and Black Ops 4 is no different, as moving as fast as possible can be the difference between winning and losing.

Since the release of Black Ops 4 on October 12, players have been experimenting with different setups to determine the best ways to play in every situation.

From attachments to gun setups to the best perks, almost every question has been answered when it comes to Black Ops 4 Multiplayer.

One thing that hadn’t been touched on thus far, however, was the best ways to move faster when playing Multiplayer.

Thankfully, ‘TheXclusiveAce’ is back with another video that goes in-depth on the best methods for getting around your favorite maps much quicker. All of his tips aren’t listed here, so be sure to check out the video to get the full rundown.

Unsurprisingly, the best way to simply move faster without utilizing any sort of slide techniques is with the Lightweight perk.

While lightweight gives you a bit less of a boost than in previous games, the perk still gives you a straight up 4.5% boost, making it a must-have if your goal is to simply run faster.

If you don’t want to use Lightweight since you prefer using Gung-Ho or another perk in that slot, you can utilize TheXclusiveAce’s “Jump, Slide, Jump” method for a 3% boost without the use of any perks. All you have to do is jump into a slide and then jump out of a slide to easily receive this slight boost. 

Now, if you really want to move faster, you can add in the above method with the Lightweight and Dexterity perks for a massive 10% boost, allowing you to get to the pivotal points on the map much faster than your opposition.

Call of Duty Mobile’s Anniversary update is in full effect to celebrate the launch of Season 11 and a few big surprises are on the way, including a limited time second map for the battle royale mode.

It’s the one year anniversary of CoD Mobile and the developers are celebrating in a big way. The full Season 11 patch notes outlined a bunch of new content on the horizon. From new rewards and weapons to a full Battle Pass and plenty more, there’s a ton to play for amidst the festivities.

However, there’s also plenty more excitement set to carry the hype through the entire season. Chief among the additions is a special, limited-time map coming just for the battle royale playlist. If you’re a long-time Call of Duty player, you’ll know the location all too well.

Blackout’s Alcatraz map will be available to play alongside the standard Isolated battle royale map you know already.

Blackout’s Alcatraz map is making a return for a limited time in CoD Mobile.

“For our Anniversary Season we’re adding a limited time second map with Alcatraz,” the developers revealed on October 14. This location hasn’t been seen in Call of Duty since Black Ops 4’s take on the battle royale genre with Blackout.

If you weren’t around for its original run, Blackout is a considerably smaller map than what you might be used to in CoD Mobile. “Keep your head on a swivel and take advantage of the map’s verticality,” they advised. “Get up high and rain destruction on your enemies below.”

Similar to Warzone for PC and console players, plenty of vehicles were scattered around the original Blackout map. Expect to see some of those make a return, though every other gameplay element will play exactly the same as you’re used to.

It’s worth noting, however, that this map won’t be a permanent addition to the mobile experience. Alcatraz is included for the Anniversary celebration before it disappears again. Though given how much effort would have been required to port the map to CoD Mobile, it’s likely not the last time we see it.

Keep on high alert at all times as Alcatraz is a much smaller battle royale map than Isolation.

Expect to see plenty of surprises in the battle royale playlist throughout the next month. From new weapons to mods and a ton of balance updates, it’s easily one of the biggest patches to date.
