Treyarch have announced the release date for the next major patch update in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, as well as giving a massive preview as to what players can expect. 

The version 1.12 update is set to release on January 29 and will include a lot of content for all three general game modes – Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies.

For Multiplayer, perhaps the biggest and most anticipated piece of news is regarding League Play, which has yet to be released in Black Ops 4.

According to Treyarch, “fundamental changes” have been made to the Ranked system since they first announced their plans for League Play, as well as “numerous important updates” to the CWL ruleset, all of which will be further explained next week.

The other news regarding Multiplayer is that Blackjack’s Gun Game will be making a return, featuring the all new KAP 45 full-auto pistol that was just added to the game.


As for Blackout, these previously announced tuning adjustments for Level 3 Armor, Concussions, and Cluster Grenades will be implemented via the v1.12 update.

  • Reduced damage protection for Armor across the board (Levels 1-3)
  • Level 3 Armor will no longer include additional damage protection against explosions and melee attacks
  • Increased Armor Plate requirements to repair Level 3 Armor
  • Reduced status effect duration, area of effect radius, and throw distance for Concussion grenades
  • More options to outplay attackers when hit by a Concussion grenade
  • Increased time to detonate for Cluster Grenades
  • Damage reduction for mini-Cluster Grenade explosions.

There is also a brand new Limited Time Mode coming to Blackout, called ‘Ambush,’ which features only sniper rifles, melee weapons, and launchers in a storm circle that never stops collapsing once it starts.

Full Weapon Camo progression will also be coming to the battle royale mode and will work differently compared to the Multiplayer system. 

As for Zombies, there will be a lot of new content coming via this update, including Classic and Loot weapons such as the MP 40, Grav, Daemon 3XB, SWAT RFT, and KAP 45, all of which will be made available via Mystery Boxes.

There will also now be support for Mastery Camos, Mastercrafts, Reactive Camos, and Black Market Camos, as well as a new IX Gauntlet that will feature 30 rounds of new challenges.

Sources: 100 Thieves acquire OpTic’s CDL spot, represented as LA Thieves

Sources have told Dexerto that 100 Thieves are entering the Call of Duty League by purchasing the spot previously held by OpTic Gaming Los Angeles.

After initially declining to invest in a slot for the Call of Duty League’s inaugural 2020 season, 100 Thieves are re-entering CoD esports after all for the 2021 campaign and beyond.

The spot that had been OpTic Gaming Los Angeles’ has now transferred ownership to the prominent esports organization, and sources have reported that 100T will rebrand the team to LA Thieves.

Immortals Gaming Club, which had purchased OpTic Gaming and one of two Los Angeles CDL franchise spots, recently sold the Green Wall back to Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, who will remain in control of the brand.

The OpTic Gaming Los Angeles franchise will end after just one season of competing in the CDL.

At this time, it’s not yet clear whether the league will allow H3CZ to rebrand his Chicago Huntsmen franchise to OpTic. Since he’s already the CEO of Huntsmen, his reacquisition of the OpTic brand meant that control of one of the two teams would eventually have to change hands once again.

According to recent reports from Esports Talk, the CDL was taking the stance that franchises should remain tied to the cities they were initially founded in. Thus, if H3CZ and NRG wanted their team to take on the OpTic Gaming insignia, they would have to sell the Huntsmen spot and move their Call of Duty operations to Los Angeles.

However, in those same reports, it was indicated that despite their initial unwillingness to enter the CDL, 100 Thieves and CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag acquiring a spot was not totally out of the question, and now it’s come to fruition.

While brief, 100 Thieves’ first stint in competitive Call of Duty was a highly successful one.

While brief, 100 Thieves’ first stint in Call of Duty esports was a very successful one; the team captured two major trophies in the then-called CoD World League and finished second in the CWL World Championship.

100T’s team became a fan-favorite, and when Nadeshot announced that they’d be leaving the esport due to the transition to franchising, many were left disappointed, especially considering Haag’s extensive CoD background.

The only question that remains now is concerning their roster – whether or not Nadeshot or his org will want to make any personnel changes remains to be seen, but if not, many will still expect the team to be a contender, considering that three of the four players are top-tier with championship experience.

  • Zack ‘Drazah’ Jordan

CoD stars SlasheR and Kenny are returning to 100 Thieves as members of LA Thieves.

For SlasheR and Kenny, this will be their second stint with 100T after previously featuring for the org in its lone season of competition. Similarly, General Manager Eric ‘Muddawg’ Sanders is also returning to the red and black after leaving them for OpTic when the org parted ways from CoD esports.

As always, we will continue to update this story and bring you the latest as more information becomes available.
