The Black Ops 4 beta version of Search will be played on the maps Seaside, Contraband, Frequency, Payload and Gridlock.
Search and Destroy is a classic Call of Duty mode that does not have respawns, making it play a little different than the rest of the game’s modes.
Search in Black Ops 4 is returning with few changes, though there will only be five players per team instead of six for public matches. Competitive Call of Duty always uses 4v4 for Search and Destroy but the team size for Black Ops 4 comp is to be determined.
Double XP may seem like an odd addition to a game that is in a limited time beta, however leveling up will have an impact on the Black Ops 4 launch.
Players who hit the level cap of the Black Ops 4 beta will be rewarded with a permanent unlock token when the full game launches in October.
Permanent unlock tokens are typically only earned after Prestige in Call of Duty games, to make resetting your rank less harsh.Players who hit the level cap during te beta will be able to unlock any high level item right from the start.
