In a set of new leaks about the upcoming Call of Duty title, Black Ops 4, news of weapon and specialist variants as well as new Blackout information has been revealed.
This is of course unconfirmed, but the source previously correctly leaked details of the fourth DLC pack for Call of Duty: WWII, so there is a good chance that some or all of this information is accurate.
Firstly, details of the 'Specialist Stories' Black Ops 4 was revealed, which are intended to give some backstory to the multiplayer specialist characters.
But in addition to this, a new mode, weapon and specialist variants, in-game events and features coming to the Blackout battle royale mode have been discovered.
Note, this information is not confirmed, and could change prior to release.
[Treyarch] have developed two new weapons which weren’t in the beta:
· A small launcher – somewhat similar to the Blackcell in appearance and may be lock-on only.
· An assault rifle with angular lines on its receiver and curved iron sites.
[Treyarch] have been developing variants of weapons and specialists under the theme of “Day of the Dead” and “Halloween”. This includes a Halloween themed supply drop – although this could change as Activision and Treyarch still make decisions on how to handle microstransactions in this game.

NOTE: This mode may have been cut and replaced by Specialist Stories Mode, leakers are uncertain.
Some of this information lines up with what was seen in the Blackout trailer, for example the wingsuit.
Zombies have also been confirmed to feature in some way in Blackout, but this could simply mean that maps or weapons from Zombies will be used, not necessarily actual Zombies. It is confirmed that characters from Zombies will be playable in Blackout.
Some of this information will be proven true or false when the Blackout beta launches on September 10.
