Treyarch has kept the update train rolling with yet another game settings update for Black Ops 4. 

Ever since Black Ops 4 was released on October 12, Treyarch has been hard at work releasing regular updates to the game in order to provide players with the best experience possible.

The latest game settings update brings a few new additions for PC and Xbox One players while fixing a couple glitches that has been dividing the PC Blackout community.

Most notably, the October 25 update will set up the release of the Black Market on all platforms. The feature was first released exclusively to the PlayStation 4 last week but starting October 26, PC and Xbox One players will have a chance to start earning new rewards.

In addition to the Black Market, PC and Xbox players will also gain access to the free Halloween event item on October 27. Treyarch was sure to remind players that even though they have gotten the event a week later than PlayStation players, everyone will have access to it for the same length of time.

The other major change coming with the October 25 update deals with a glitch that allowed PC players to activate the Wingsuit at any time by using the Number Pad 3 key. PC players will now only be able to activate the suit by sprinting and jumping from a significant height, which is Treyarch’s intended method of using the suit.

In addition to that fix, Treyarch also patched out the ability to shoot through certain rocks, which was causing many players to lose gunfights despite being fully behind cover.

Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.

Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.

Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.

From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.

How to watch the Black Ops 2 Invitational

The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups will be going live at 3PM EST (12PM PT) and the broadcast will likely run for most of the day.

As per usual, it’s all expected to be featured on Hitch’s own Twitch stream which we’ve embedded below. A majority of the players and creators will likely be sharing their own perspectives throughout the event as well.

Teams competing in the Black Ops 2 Invitational

Some squads feature some of the most successful Call of Duty veterans while others consist of popular streamers. Regardless, every team is stacked with FPS talent so expect some close matchups.

Standing out among the eight rosters is a true throwback. The 2014 world championship team of Crimsix, Karma, TeePee, and ACHES, will be reuniting. Formerly representing Complexity and then Evil Geniuses, these four players haven’t been on the same team since 2014.
