Call of Duty fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Black Ops 4’s next in-game operation named Strike From The Shadows, with some believing that it will cause major changes to the Blackout map by flooding a number of locations.
Treyarch officially announced that Strike From The Shadows would be the latest operation to hit Black Ops 4 on April 23, and have been dropping teasers ever since as fans of the popular first-person shooter gear up for its release on Tuesday, April 30.
Eagle-eyed fans have been scouring these teasers for hints as to what’s to come, with many certain that popular Black Ops 3 specialist Spectre will be added to the game - and some believe the character will have a major effect on the landscape of Blackout.
Will Spectre flood the Blackout map?
In the April 25 teaser, a character that is almost certainly Spectre can be seen working their way through some kind of tunnel, before planting explosives on a wall and then arming, as seen in the reflection of the character’s helmet.

While the teaser doesn’t tell us where this is taking place, some CoD fans believe that this sequence is actually taking place underneath Hydro Dam on the Blackout map, which is located in the north-east corner of the map.
With the explosives planted on the walls and ready to blow, this would surely cause a massive hole to appear in the side of the dam, causing a huge amount of water to crash through the stone barrier and perhaps create huge flooding on the Blackout map.
Some surmise that this will cause Rivertown to become submerged, as it sits in between two parts of the river that flows out of the dam, while others think Train Station could also be be affected by the rise in water levels.
Whether this is the case or not remains to be seen, but it would give Treyarch a great opportunity to refresh the map, as they have only added two new point of interest to the area since the battle royale mode released back in October, in the form of Hijacked and Ghost Town.
It won’t be long until we all find out though, with Operation Strike From The Shadows set to go live for PS4 players on Tuesday, April 30.
