For the third time in as many days, Treyarch has released another update for Black Ops 4.
Treyarch has been hard at work perfecting Black Ops 4 since it was released on October 12 and this week has been no different with a parade of updates.
Just two days removed from the massive v1.04 patch, Treyarch just dropped another update that focused on a couple major issues that fans have been wanting answers on.
Treyarch initially provided the following update on just what changes would be coming with the November 1 update:
Today’s game update should help to alleviate hitching in Blackout Quads on Xbox One. We’ve also deployed a fix to address an issue with Blackout victories ending in a draw -- stay tuned for full patch notes.— Treyarch Studios (@Treyarch) November 1, 2018
Ever since the game launch, Xbox One players have been taking to social media saying that Blackout, the game's popular battle royale mode, was almost unplayable due to various hitching issues.
Those, along with the curious bug that caused Blackout games on all platforms to end in draws, have been fixed with this update.
While Treyarch first announced the update on November 1, the patch notes for it didn't actually drop until November 2. In addition to the above Xbox One fixes, the PC-specific weapon balancing patch was also released.
You can read the full patch notes for the entire November 2 update below:
Our most recent game update has alleviated hitching in Blackout Quads on Xbox One – please drop a comment below if you’re still seeing this problem after applying the latest game update. Thanks for your patience as we continue to work to improve the overall Blackout experience.
For our PC players, we’d like to clear up any confusion around the state of weapon balancing on PC vs. console. The first phase of weapon balancing changes exclusive to the PC build has rolled out in today’s PC game update, including changes to the Saug 9mm Operator Mod, the Koshka sniper rifle, and the MOG-12 shotgun, and more weapon tuning changes to the PC meta are coming in a future update.
While many of the changes included in this week’s Multiplayer balancing update for consoles were applied to PC on Wednesday, others were already in place on PC before the patch. Please keep an eye out for separate PC-only updates from /u/TreyarchPC for everything you need to know.
Finally, a note to our players experiencing low server populations in certain areas of the world, particularly South America and South Africa. Earlier this week, we rolled out an update to ensure Blackout matches always start up in these regions despite server population, and we're constantly working to improve the online experience. We’ve also been rolling out network updates over the past two weeks to improve server performance around the globe. If you’re still experiencing problems with getting into a Blackout match in your region, let us know in the comments below. We’re always listening and working behind the scenes to make sure everyone in the Black Ops 4 community can have the best experience possible, regardless of where they live.
We’ve made the following updates to the game (Global):
We’ve also made the following updates to the game on PC:
Let us know what you think of the improved Quads performance on Xbox One and new weapon balance on PC, and enjoy your weekend!
