Call of Duty developers Treyarch have decided to dish out some free content to their player-base, awarding players with a free Weapon Crate on Black Ops 4.

Following the release of the massive Black Ops 4 update on March 26, players began reporting that they were receiving a free Weapon Crate after logging onto the game.

Treyarch have now confirmed that the Weapon Crate is guaranteed to contain a MKII weapon variants and two other Reserve items, both of which have the chance of being duplicates since neither are dupe-protected.

MKII variants are signature versions of existing weapons in the game that have a unique cosmetic design and offer the user a 25% XP bonus per kill. 

There are currently numerous MKII variants in the game, including one for the Daemon 3XB SMG, SWAT RFT assault rifle, ICR assault rifle, Swordfish tactical rifle, and more.

The free Weapon Crate offered in Black Ops 4 guarantees two MKII variants and two items that are not duplicate-protected.

Since the patch notes came several hours after the update first went live, there was a lot of confusion as to why there were free Weapon Crates being awarded to players, with some theorizing that it may have been only for owners of the Black Ops Pass.

However, Treyarch have confirmed that the crate is available to all, and players simply just have to visit the Black Market to claim their crate after installing the new update.

As of now, these Weapon Crates are only being given on the PlayStation 4, as per Sony’s exclusivity agreement with Activision, but they should also become available on the Xbox One and PC on April 2, which is when the update will go live on those platforms. 

There are several MKII variants in the game, including one for the Daemon 3XB submachine gun.

The March 26 update, which went live at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, is one of the largest updates Black Ops 4 has received, including major additions and changes to Multiplayer, Blackout, Zombies, and League Play.

The full patch notes for this update is available in our March 26 Black Ops 4 update information page, as well as a breakdown of all the new content and changes.

Warzone’s much anticipated Black Ops Cold War update has been delayed to the disappointment of Call of Duty fans across the globe.

It’s fair to say there’s a lot of excitement for Warzone’s integration into Cold War. The update is expected to bring a set of significant features to the free-to-play title including map changes, new weapons, and new modes.

As Warzone will be transitioning into a new Call of Duty title, the game will be receiving a soft reset and returning to Season 1.

In November, Activision revealed that Season 1 would arrive on December 10. Unfortunately, an announcement has revealed that the update has been delayed.

Warzone’s Season 1 update was originally set to release on December 10.

Warzone’s Cold War Season 1 has been delayed

A live blog post from Activision has revealed Warzone’s Cold War Season 1 has been delayed. This is extremely disappointing news for fans of the free-to-play title.

It was originally set for a December 10 release, but now we know it will instead be December 16.

In an official statement, devs said: “It’s an unprecedented amount of free content and the teams are currently prepping… we’re taking a few more days to finalize everything before unleashing this massive drop of new, free content to the community.”

Warzone has received consistent updates since its release, but none have been as huge as the integration into Cold War. Although this isn’t news fans wanted to hear, it’s better to have a polished version of the game released.

The Warzone map has barely changed since the release of the game.

The main feature fans were excited about are the map changes expected to come with the update. Warzone’s map has barely changed since the release of the game in March.

However, it looks like we’re going to have to wait a bit longer before we get these changes. Hopefully, this delay will give the developers time to polish the experience for fans of the game.

We’ll keep you updated with all the latest news on the delay.
