Call of Duty Points now live in Black Ops 4 – everything you need to know

CoD Points, the in-game currency used in all Call of Duty titles since their creation in 2015, are now live and available for purchase and use in Black Ops 4 on the Playstation 4 console. 

CoD Points went live in Black Ops 4 on October 31, and can now be purchased either using the in-game store or the Playstation 4 store. 

The currency is currently only available on PS4, and will go live on Xbox One and PC on Wednesday, November 7, as part of the seven-day exclusivity agreement Sony has with Activision. 

Currently, CoD Points can be used in two ways in Black Ops 4’s Black Market – to purchase Special Orders or buying tiers of ongoing in-game events, such as Operation: First Strike. 

As of now, there are currently two Special Orders available in the Black Market – Bombero (800 CP) and Covert (500 CP) – which include a series of cosmetic items such as outfit skins and weapon camos.

These Special Orders are only in the Black Market temporarily, and will be replaced by new ones once the time above them expires.


In addition, players can also use their CoD Points to purchase tiers in the Operation: First Strike event, in order to unlock the rewards offered in higher tiers sooner rather than unlocking them by playing. 

Each tier costs 100 CP and all tiers must be purchased in order, which means that if a player wants to purchase a specific tier, they must also buy all of the locked tiers that come before it. Thus, the cost to go from tier 1 to 200 is 20,000 CoD Points.

Furthermore, once the max tier of First Strike is unlocked – tier 200 – 25 additional tiers appear, and an additional 25 after that, bringing the total to 250. As of now, it’s not clear if this pattern of 25 tiers appearing after each set continues past 250. 

There are currently several ways that players can have CoD Points on their account. CP can be purchased either in the in-game store or via the PS Store for the prices shown below.


Additionally, all CP left over from previous Call of Duty titles will also transfer over to Black Ops 4, and all those who purchased the Black Ops Pass will receive 1000 CP in addition to 300 Nebulium Plasma.

Players who also purchased either the Digital Standard Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, Digital Deluxe Enhanced Edition, Pro Edition, or Mystery Box Edition, will receive their bonus CP in-game, with each edition coming with a different amount.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is practically a household name for FPS fans and non-gamers alike. It’s no shock then that CoD fans were beyond excited at the possibility of a PS5 version of the game. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has become a staple title for the CoD franchise. After a recent clarification from an Infinity Ward dev that more content is coming soon fans have jumped back aboard the Modern Warfare hype train.

This announcement had fans scratching their heads over what new content would be released, especially when Black Ops: Cold War and its Warzone season are likely to be the focus of development for some time.

A reddit user, however, has sparked some life into the community by leaking a possible PS5 release for Modern Warfare in the near future.

Modern Warfare is the game that birthed Call of Duty: Warzone, which has exploded into a fully fledged esport.

Modern Warfare on PS5 Leak

A post and possible leak on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours by reddit user asjonesy99 has seized the interest of CoD fans from across the globe.

The post sees the possibility of there being a PS5 version of the title available in the near future. When purchasing the game, the dropdown menu shows the original PS4 version followed by a PS5 version.

The original post states that when he selects this option it becomes locked. After checking a plethora of other games, there are no other options for PS5 versions, so either this is a simple error or CoD are planning a future PS5 update for the game.

While excited, a lot of fans weren’t particularly shocked at this leak simply due to the popularity of Warzone, which launched alongside Modern Warfare in October 2019 and is fully integrated into the game.

The future is of course uncertain, and in turn this means that this could be nothing. However, it’s really exciting to think that Modern Warfare will be back with a bang to continue to inspire future generations of FPS players in the same way it has inspired the current one.
