Treyarch has announced an update for Blackout’s special Halloween event, as well as introduced multiple fixes to the game, itself.

Blackout’s free, Halloween-themed special event is now available for PS4 users. The mode is accessible in the Black Market, and features ‘seasonal’ gear which may be used across all game modes.

In the spirit of the season, Treyarch has also made a Halloween Calling event for Zombies as part of the mode. Halloween Calling includes a slew of new challenges in Zombies, through which players can earn exclusive rewards.

The event will run for the same duration across all platforms.

With the Halloween update came a slew of additional updates for Blackout, including a fix to the game’s looting bug, wherein players couldn’t loot a fallen enemy if their backpack was at max capacity.

The full list of fixes are as follows:

  • Blackout
    • Death Stashes
      • Fixed an issue where players were sometimes unable to loot items from a Death Stash.
  • Multiplayer
    • General
      • Addressed an issue that prevented players from earning Contraband Tier progress.
      • Addressed an issue that prevented players from earning the proper amount of Contraband Tier progress in round-based games.
      • Addressed an issue with some MP matches ending in “Game Session No Longer Available”.
      • General stability improvements in the Black Market.
    • Create-a-Class
      • Addressed an issue with Attachments applying to the GKS.
    • Special Issue Equipment
      • Resolved an exploit that led to unlimited Seeker shock mines.

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
