Black Ops 4 game settings update for October 31 - Black Market updates and PC improvements

Treyarch has released the latest game settings update for Black Ops 4 and it includes major updates to the Black Market as well as PC fixes.

Following the massive v1.04 patch that dropped on October 30, Treyarch has released another round of updates to Black Ops 4 with the October 31 game settings update. 

PlayStation 4 and PC players were at the forefront of this update, with each platform receiving plenty of new updates for players to dig into.

Leading the way for this update is the big updates on the way to the Black Market for PlayStation 4 players (for now). 

In addition to COD Points going live, Treyarch also added a new feature called Special Orders that will bring even more cosmetic items to Black Ops 4. Special Orders can be bought with COD Points and allow players to stack each Black Market tier with multiple rewards to unlock at once.  

Special Orders provide a new content stream to unlock in the Black Market with their own set of cosmetic items. With Special Orders, players can stack each tier with multiple items to unlock at once, allowing everyone to maximize item unlocks with two items per Tier at all times and up to three items per Tier when Special Events are live (like the Halloween event live right now!). Players can choose when to acquire and start progressing through Special Orders, and only one can be active at a time. Though Special Orders will rotate on a regular basis, they will stay in your inventory once acquired until they’re completed, and you can switch between active Special Orders at any time. Once a Special Order is activated, you’ll see the new content drop in starting on the Black Market Tier you’re currently on.

While the above features are only for PS4 players for a week until they release for Xbox One and PC, Treyarch also dropped the v1.04 patch for PC along with some additional bug fixes. 

It should be noted, however, that PC will receive a separate balancing patch as certain weapons perform differently on PC than on consoles. No word yet on when that will drop, but Treyarch confirmed it's in the works.
