The upcoming release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has generated a substantial amount of hype throughout the gaming world, especially surrounding the ‘Blackout’ Battle Royale mode.

While a collection of other Battle Royale titles have been known to support lobbies of 100 players each, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 may be taking a different route with their spin on the popular genre.

A Reddit user by the name of jerm500 posted an image of the supposed ‘Blackout’ lobby, which appears to show that the mode will hold 60 players, compared to the typical 100 in Fortnite, PUBG, and other games.

Some community members have voiced concern with the prospect of the mode potentially ‘only’ containing a total of 60 players, yet nothing has been confirmed by Treyarch at this time.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is scheduled to release worldwide on Friday, October 12th.

We will continue to provide more information on this story as it is made available.

Bizarre Black Ops Cold War exploit completely removes sprint-fire delay

A strange exploit has been found with the Gung-Ho perk in Black Ops Cold War, which removes the sprint-fire delay from all weapons in-game.

As with other online multiplayer shooters, Call of Duty players, typically, have to have quick reaction speed in order to win gunfights and pick up kills against the enemy team.

While this reaction time can be difficult to improve, some players have found another way to gain an advantage over their opponents with a bug that allows you to fire the first few bullets even earlier.

This exploit was found with the Gung-Ho perk, which allows players to shoot their weapons while sprinting. The Cold War perk has been a go-to for those who love to run and gun, but this new bug completely cuts out the time it takes to start firing.

One Redditor u/b3nb0i shared this unusual glitch with the perk, revealing that, with the help of lethal equipment such as semtex, it’s possible to cancel the sprint-to-fire delay on a gun.

Usually, even with the Gung-Ho perk equipped, there is a small delay in the time it takes to straighten the weapon from the sprint position to be ready to fire.

However, with semtex or another piece of equipment in-hand, the gun is already in a position to fire and cancels the delay, making it quite deadly in any gunfights. It is worth noting that it is not possible to ADS while using this exploit and that players would have to rely on their weapons attachments to make their shots more accurate.

While this strange exploit does require some getting used to, it could still be quite overpowered particularly on maps with short-range engagements such as Nuketown, especially as the grenade will drop if you’re taken down – like how the Martyrdom perk used to work.

As of now, it is unclear whether this was intended to be a feature in Cold War but, if it is found to be a glitch it will likely be patched by Treyarch in one of the future updates.
