Patch notes for the next batch of content coming to Black Ops 4 have been released, revealing a wave of new modes, fixes, and information on the next Operation.
Black Ops 4 is winding down its Operation Absolute Zero, and Treyarch is making sure that its fans have tons of content to sift through before starting on the next operation.
Seems like Treyarch wanted to make the February 14 update worthy of the holiday by filling up the Featured Playlists on all platforms with something different for the weekend while also giving fans an update on their next Operation.
New modes are going to make their way into the game, such as Arms Team Deathmatch and a limited timed mode for Blackout called Close Quarter Frenzy for Playstation 4. While Endurance Chaos Moshpit, Mercenary Deathmatch Moshpit, and Mercenary Chaos Moshpit have been added to the Xbox and PC Featured Playlists.
To celebrate the holidays, Treyarch is showing some love to its players by announcing a special Valentine’s Quad Feed Weekend which will give players a chance to earn loads of XP in various game modes.
Playstation Multiplayer fans who love a bit of chaos will be thrilled to play Arms Race Team Deathmatch, which raises the the points earned per EKIA from 100 to 150. Meaning there's going to be a lot more killstreaks and XP to earn throughout a single game.
Meanwhile, players on all platforms will see a noticeable change to Team Deathmatch from here on, as Treyarch bumped up the standard score limit to 100. The higher limit will be a permanent feature for the mode since the company decided to change it based off of incredibly positive feedback.
Xbox and PC players will now be able to jump into the Endurance Chaos Moshpit. Ambush will still be available for another week, while Playstation players will see the return of Close Quarter Frenzy.
Treyarch also announced that the first Solo variants to these limited-time modes will come February 15, giving players a new way to experience the game types.

It’s a big week as we set the stage for our next Operation, and we’re getting a head start with our Valentine’s Quad Feed Weekend celebration, now live through 10AM Tuesday, Feb. 19!
Enjoy five days of 2XP in MP and Zombies, 2X Weapon XP in MP and Zombies, 2X Nebulium Plasma in Zombies, and 2X Merits in Blackout on us. We’re starting this one a day early and ending an extra day later than usual, just in case we’re butting into anyone’s Valentine’s Day plans. Then again, nothing says “I choose you” like staying in all night to rank up with your favorite Duo partner. Right?
And for those Blackout warriors who’ve already dominated their way to Echelon 80... we’ll just leave this here for now.
This week, we’re spicing things up with new and fan-favorite game modes as we prep for next week’s new Operation. Looking to level up faster, call in more Strike Teams, or finally take on the Gunship Challenge? Introducing the brand new Arms Race Team Deathmatch MP playlist on PS4, where every EKIA earns 150 points instead of the usual 100. This means more points, more XP, and more Scorestreaks, so be sure to bring a rocket launcher to the gun fight.
After thoroughly playtesting different point values and listening to community feedback on TDM pacing, we’ve raised the standard score limit for Team Deathmatch from 75 to 100, and for Kill Confirmed from 60 to 80. Yes, TDM 100 is now the new standard! Let us know what you think of this change in the comments below.
Close Quarters Frenzy has returned to PS4 by popular demand as Ambush continues its second week on Xbox One and PC! We’ve heard your requests to bring CQF back to Blackout, so now’s your chance to get in on the action using only close-range weapons against a faster Collapse before our third Operation kicks into gear. And tomorrow, we’re launching our first Solo variants of these limited-time modes, starting at 10AM PT Friday, Feb. 15.
Black Ops 4 gets even bigger starting on Tuesday, Feb. 19. Our upcoming third Operation will deliver a constant stream of new content with several major updates dropping throughout February, March, and April, and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve got in store.
Some very special trailers are just around the corner to tell you everything you need to know. Keep an eye on our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram channels for some previews of what’s to come...
