Treyarch have released a new game settings update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and while it's not as massive as the v1.12 patch, it still contains some new content that players will be happy to see.
This latest update brings new content for all three of the major game modes - Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies - while also fixing some bugs and ironing out kinks.
For Multiplayer, the biggest addition is the brand new Pro Series Moshpit playlist, which adds a competitive twist to the public game modes.
All matches played in this playlist will be restricted to the competitive map pools, game modes, and official ruleset used by the Call of Duty World League.
This means that there are a lot of restrictions in place for Specialists, weapons, attachments, perks, scorestreaks, wildcards, gear and more, all of which are detailed in the patch notes below.
As for Blackout, the brand new weapon camo progressions system has gone live, allowing players to earn new camo variations on their way to unlocking Gold, Diamond, and Dark Matter Mastery Camos.
2X Merits have also been turned on for all platforms, meaning players can greatly boost up their Merit rank by grinding the game this weekend.
Mastery Camos have also been added to Zombies on all platforms, as well as support for Mastercrafts, Reactive Camos, and camos obtained from the Black Market.
Players can now also unlock new reticles by completing Reticle Challenges in the Armory, and more visual options have been added that will allow players to customize the colors of reticles.
Check out the full patch notes for this January 31 update below:
For our competitive players – and for those who want to try MP with fewer Specialists in the mix – we’re launching our Pro Series Moshpit playlist today in the MP Featured category on all platforms. Now’s your chance to get a feel for how the pros play with new limitations set on Specialists, Scorestreaks, weapons, and more. Check the patch notes below for the full list of restrictions, and get those competitive loadouts ready for primetime.
We’ve added Mastery Camos (Gold, Diamond, Dark Matter) to Zombies on all platforms, as well as support for Mastercrafts, Reactive Camos, and Black Market camos. You’ll be able to track your progress as you complete challenges in the Armory on your way to earning Mastery Camos.
Zombies players can also now unlock additional reticles by completing Reticle Challenges in the Armory, as well as customize their colors for more visual options in-game.
Blackout’s unique camo progression system arrives today on PS4, featuring a completely unique game mechanic to unlock new weapon camo variations on the path to Gold, Diamond, and Dark Matter. This new mechanic is uniquely designed to reward players for exploration, looting, and survival in Blackout, without having to complete headshot challenges on every weapon.
In this new progression system, players collect Paint Cans throughout the world in each match, and bank them to unlock weapon camos in the order of their choice between matches. Paint Cans are a new resource in the world of Blackout, and you keep what you find even after you die… just be sure to watch your back while you’re looting.
Because the open world of Blackout is so mechanically different from Multiplayer and Zombies, we wanted this system to incentivize exploration during the cat-and-mouse game of battle royale. So drop in, bank those cans, unlock some camos, and let us know what you think of the new progression system.
Down But Not Out is also today’s Featured Playlist on Xbox One and PC, and will run through 10AM PT Tuesday, when Ambush takes the Featured Playlist slot on Xbox One and PC. We’re also turning on 2X Merits in Blackout all weekend long on all platforms – enjoy the grind!
