The latest features of Black Ops 4’s Black Market have finally come to Xbox One and PC players after being released on PlayStation on October 31.

Now that the seven-day exclusivity agreement Sony has with Activision is over, Black Ops 4 players on all platforms can enjoy CoD Points and the brand-new Special Order system for the Black Market.

CoD Points are a virtual currency that can be bought and used to either speed up tier progression for in-game events or to buy Special Orders from the Black Market.

Special Orders are the latest addition to Black Ops 4’s Black Market and allow players the chance to get exclusive items not found anywhere else in the game.

The first Special Orders contain special cosmetic items for both the Firebreak and Seraph Specialists.

charlieINTELSpecial Orders went live for Xbox One and PC players on November 7.

CoD Points can also be used to speed up tier progression for the Operation: First Strike event, with each tier costing 100 CP. This puts the cost of going from tier 1 to 200 at 20,000 CP.

Once players hit tier 200, there are another 25 tiers that unlock and are exclusively filled with Reserves to unlock even more special items.

There are several ways that players can go about obtaining CoD Points, with the main being to purchase them with real money in each platform’s respective shops.

Additionally, players who purchased the Black Ops Pass or special editions of the game will receive bonus CP automatically. Any CP left over from previous Black Ops titles will also roll over into Black Ops 4.

Best Warzone kills against cheaters exploiting the Stim glitch

Taking matters into their own hands, some of Call of Duty: Warzone’s bravest players have, quite literally, gone out of their way to punish cheating exploiters who abuse the notorious Stim glitch.

As most Warzone fans have become familiar with by now, there is an unlimited Stim Shot glitch that pops into existence, gets patched out, and then returns every once in a while. The bug allows you to use an infinite amount of Stim Shots, enabling players to remain in the gas indefinitely and secure easy wins while those who play fairly die to the final circles.

Unfortunately, as time passes, more and more exploiters have become aware of the glitch and prone to abusing it. Fortunately, more and more players with competitive integrity have become aware of those exploiters and prone to exacting justice by punishing them.

While few things are more satisfying than a high-kill Warzone victory, one such thing is the cathartic sensation of a cheater being killed and therefore robbed of their illegitimate win. Highlighted by one of Warzone’s very best, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, here are the best kills against Stim glitch exploiters.

Unwilling to be denied their 100-kill victory, Jukeyz and his team got set up with self-revives, gas masks, and a UAV to go seek out and eliminate the exploiter in their lobby. Driving directly into the toxic gas, Jukeyz is able to hop out (as his driver is downed by the green cloud) and delete the prone cheater.

And Jukeyz isn’t alone in obliterating these exploiters. Reddit’s ‘thebigeasy31’ decimated the hubris of one such exploiter, who brashly thought they could start Stim glitching earlier in the game with a Most Wanted contact on his head. Instead, bigeasy gave him a bullet to the head.

And last, but certainly not least, Reddit’s ‘Millertime166’ took it upon themself to pull off a one-man vigilante act by seeking out a Stim glitcher on Rebirth Island. Heading into the gas, copping a Gas Mask, and getting into a vehicle, Millertime used their last remaining HP to kill off a silly cheater who was hidden behind a wall.

While the Stim glitch was supposed to have been removed during the January 13 patch, some believe it persists, albeit in a more limited fashion. Nevertheless, most expect it could possibly make a return at some point.

If it does come back, these players prove that the game’s developers are not the only ones who can counteract cheaters. Like those who killed off exploiters who were abusing the Promenade truck glitch, Verdansk’s finest have begun carrying out their own brand of justice.
