Pamaj Has an Idea of How the Storm Should Work for Black Ops 4’s Blackout

Austin ‘Pamaj’ Pamajewon has an idea to give the ‘storm’ effect in Blackout mode a unique Black Ops flair.

The OpTic sniper would like to see zombies take a starring role in the storm.

In order to force the action in Battle Royale games, there is usually a mechanic where the map gets smaller over time.

PUBG features an electrical storm that will damage players caught in it, while Fortnite also has a ‘storm’ to damage players. Players must get closer and closer together with storm mechanics, solving the issue of a playing area that is significantly larger than regular shooters.

For Call of Duty’s upcoming battle royale mode Blackout, there is a possibility for an all new mechanic featuring zombies.

Instead of an environmental effect that automatically damages players, Pamaj wants to see the outside of the ‘circle’ loaded with zombies that get faster as the match goes on.

Treyarch may have issues figuring out how to get close to 100 players and thousands of zombies on a map without performance suffering, but Pamaj is certainly on to something.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Beta is multiplayer only for August, leaving out the highly anticipated Blackout.

Treyarch has not confirmed many details about the mode, leaving many to speculate how a Call of Duty battle royale would work.

One detail that is confirmed is the presence of bullet drop for Blackout; the ballistics are also making their way to the multiplayer part of Black Ops 4.

Players will not have to speculate much longer as Blackout will get its own beta in September.

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.
