PC players will now be able to experience all that the v1.08 patch has to offer, while Multiplayer Featured Playlists have been updated for all platforms. 

Patch v1.08 brought a host of new changes to Black Ops 4 on December 3, but those changes only went live for PlayStation and Xbox One players.

With the December 4 update, PC players will now get the v1.08 update, along with the long-awaited auto mantle toggle option.

Both Xbox One and PC players will also be gaining access to Safeguard, the new Multiplayer mode, along with new features for Blackout.

Not only will the Zombies Origins Character Missions unlock, but players will also be able to participate in the Blightfather event in Blackout, as well.

Treyarch also confirms that they’re aware of an issue with Aim Assist and Deadshot Dealer not working as intended in Zombies and Death Stashes being bugged in Blackout. Both issues are being worked on and fixes will come in future updates.

Treyarch is currently gearing up for a major Blackout update on December 11.

You can read the full patch notes below:

Dec. 4 Update: PC 1.08 Title Update, TDM 85, Chaos Domination, Safeguard on all platforms, Origins Character Missions and Blightfather in Blackout on Xbox One/PC

Today’s update delivers our PC 1.08 title update featuring PC-exclusive changes, as well as the debut of TDM 85 in the MP Featured category, Zombies Origins Character Missions and the return of the Blightfather event in Blackout on Xbox One and PC, and additional bug fixes. Though we originally planned to introduce Chaos Control in the Featured category this week, we’ve made the call to swap it out for Chaos Domination while we make some final tweaks. See below for the Chaos Dom rules in the patch notes.

We’re aware of an issue with Aim Assist and Deadshot Dealer not working as intended in Zombies, and we’re continuing to work on a solution for issues players are reporting with Blackout Death Stashes.

The latest Call of Duty Mobile update has arrived as the developers have introduced a heap of new content along with plenty of Halloween-themed surprises.

Call of Duty has well and truly been overrun with Halloween-festivities over the past few days. First Modern Warfare and Warzone were both hit with freaky updates. Now it’s time for CoD Mobile to join them.

The October 22 update brings with it a complete rundown on upcoming events, as well as new weapons, maps, and a huge balance pass. It’s a meaty update so there’s plenty to sink your teeth into.

From when you can expect certain Halloween-challenges to what new modes have been deployed, here’s everything to know about the latest CoD Mobile update.

Halloween-themed events in CoD Mobile

Right out of the gate, the CoD Mobile devs clued us in on every event taking place over the next few days. The Survival Kit Seasonal Challenge is already underway, though six unique events will be joining the mix from now until November 1.

Some events will provide you with new weapons such as the first of its kind NA-45 explosive sniper. Meanwhile, other events will allow you to play on specific Halloween-themed maps. 

Every day you come back to CoD Mobile will bring you something new, so here’s what to look out for over the next week.

CoD Mobile weekly updates

  • 10/21 – Survival Kit Seasonal Challenge
  • 10/23 – Elite Marksmen Seasonal Challenge
  • 10/23 – 11/01 ~ Pumpkin Confirmed Event & Playlist (MP)
  • 10/23 – 11/01 ~ Halloween Standoff Playlist (MP)
  • 10/23 – 10/29 ~ King’s Quarters Event (MP)
  • 10/23 – 10/29 ~ King 24/7 Playlist (MP)
  • 10/26 – 11/01 ~ Attack of the Undead Playlist (MP)

Halloween twists on classic multiplayer modes in CoD Mobile

Similar to how Modern Warfare has changed up various modes to fit the Halloween festivities, CoD Mobile’s playlists are adapting too. First up is a unique spin on Kill Confirmed. Rather than picking up Dog Tags, players will be dropping Pumpkins all over the map instead.

Adding to the chaos, this playlist will now put 20 players into a lobby in 10v10 action. Not only that but unique rewards will also be on offer. Just for playing this limited-time mode four unique items can be unlocked. There are two weapon skins styled as a Jack O’ Lantern, a Rare sticker, along with a Pumpkin weapon charm.

Kill Confirmed is now Pumpkin Confirmed.

Also making a return this time around is the spooky version of Standoff. The iconic multiplayer map has been given a terrifying makeover and it’ll pop up across almost every competitive playlist throughout the Halloween update.

Last but not least, Attack of the Undead is back for a limited time. You’ll be able to play this survival-based mode in its own exclusive playlist over the next few days. Be the last player left standing against Undead enemies to claim the victory.

New map and weapon in CoD Mobile

Packed into the latest update is a batch of new content outside of the Halloween goodies. You’ll be able to jump into a new yet familiar map while getting your hands on a one-of-a-kind sniper to boot.

Modern Warfare’s popular ‘King’ map has made its way to the mobile experience. The small gunfight map has been translated over for 2v2 and 1v1 action.

There’s a unique 24/7 playlist and even original rewards just for checking out the new stomping grounds as well.

The King’s Quarters event comes with a handful of unique rewards.

After plenty of teasers, the NA-45 explosive sniper rifle is finally arriving in CoD Mobile. “Every other shot you fire triggers explosive damage that can hit multiple players,” the devs confirmed.

In order to keep things balanced, however, each individual shot deals less damage than other snipers. Headshots will still be a one-hit kill though.

Rounding out the patch is a series of balancing updates and bug fixes. The NA-45 has already had its damage scaled back right out of the gate. The DLQ33 will now reload faster and the HG40 has been buffed overall in multiplayer.

The latest update is already available in-game and there’s clearly plenty to look forward to over the coming days. Check out the full list of balance updates below.
