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.

Nuketown Easter egg discovered on new Black Ops Cold War map

Black Ops Cold War players have discovered an easter egg that could hint at Nuketown from BO1 on the map Cartel, which is one of the brand new maps made available to fans during the game’s Open Beta.

Everyone knows that Nuketown is the single most popular map in Black Ops history. It’s been a part of every single iteration in the series, even showing up multiple times in one title, if you count the Zombies version of it in BO2. Rumors have even suggested that the map will be showing up in Black Ops Cold War, which is unsurprising, to say the least.


Because of its popularity, it’s only reasonable that the developers would want to start teasing it before it’s added to the game – but most people probably didn’t expect it to show up in one of the beta maps.

The image of Nuketown can be found right before the main hanger in Cartel.

If players go into the back of the map Cartel, which was one of the maps that players didn’t get to experience in the Alpha, they’ll find an image of one of the houses on the classic BO1 map. Does this mean that the classic version of the map will appear in Black Ops Cold War?


Of course, no one knows at this point in time, but some people seem to think so, like YouTuber TheGamingRevolution. And it would make sense, too: With BOCW being a direct sequel to Black Ops 1, having a map pulled straight from that game would fit the time period.

That being said, given that every single version of the map throughout its history has been changed, it would be surprising if the developers didn’t do the same thing this time.

Regardless of what this picture means, it’s nice to see that the developers haven’t forgotten about the classic map, even 10 years after its original launch.
