Black Ops 4 multiplayer is currently live for all platforms, but what time does the beta end?

With different start dates for all three platforms, the beta can be a little confusing. Find your platform below to find out when the Black Ops 4 beta ends and when it will come back.

Updated for the second weekend of the Black Ops 4 Beta.

When does the Black Ops 4 Beta end for PS4?

Update: Weekend Two of the Black Ops 4 PS4 Beta will end on August 13th at 10:00 AM PDT

PS4 was the first to enjoy the beta thanks to Sony’s exclusivity contract. BO4 went live for Playstation users on August 3 at 10:00 am PDT.

The Black Ops 4 Beta on PS4 will end on August 6 at 10:00 am PDT.

If you missed out on this first weekend, the Black Ops 4 beta will return to PS4 on August 10 at 10:00 am PDT.

When will the Black Ops 4 Beta End on Xbox?

Update: The Black Ops 4 Beta ends for Xbox users on August 13 at 10:00 AM PDT.

Xbox users will not have to wait much longer to play, the Black Ops 4 Beta on Xbox One will start on August 10 at 10:00 am PDT.

The multiplayer beta will not be around long, however. August 13 at 10:00 am PDT is when the BO4 Beta ends on all platforms.

Is the Black Ops 4 Beta available on PC?

Update: The Black Ops 4 PC Beta will end on August 13 at 10:00 AM PDT.

All PC users can try the game for free when the Black Ops 4 Beta goes open on August 11 at 10:00 am PDT.

Is Blackout in the Black Ops 4 Beta?

No, Blackout is not available to play in the August versions of the Black Ops 4 Beta. However, Treyarch and Activision have advised against deleting your beta file after the multiplayer part is over on August 13.

Blackout will be part of another beta that starts in September and the current file will be updated, meaning you do not have to download a separate version to play Blackout.

Warzone players claim Nuketown Gulag gives unfair advantage to one side

A handful of Call of Duty Warzone players have hit out at the new Nuketown-themed Gulag, claiming it favors one side a bit too much. 

With the release of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Warzone has now combined the weapons of both the new game as well as the previous Modern Warfare title.

Even though there’s plenty of new content, including weapons and the Rebirth Island map, but it hasn’t gone down well with every player. There are still complaints about weapons being too overpowered, attachments not working, as well as other general bugs that come from combining the two games. 

Additionally, there’s also a new Gulag – with the showers of the Verdansk prison being done away with, and being replaced by a smaller version of Nuketown. However, players have got complaints about that too.

Players believe that Gulag fights have never been this tricky to win.

With the Modern Warfare showers, players had the same angles on each side, but that’s now changed with Nuketown. It’s now asymmetrical, with more angles to look out for, and Warzone players believe it favors the side where you can shoot through what would be the Welcome to Nuketown sign. 

“40% of my gulag deaths are from my enemy camping behind the car ruins,” posted Redditor SamirDando, complaining about the head glitch the car gives players who spawn that side. “That’s not what the gulag was originally designed to do. This needs a change.”

Others agreed, adding: “Yeah can’t stand it. The damn car head glitch” and offering up possible changes. “Remove the car, change the plywood to concrete so it can’t be shot through and it’d be alright,” said another.

Yet, one player pointed out that it’s not just the head glitch that’s the problem, but how much room you have to work with. 

“In my opinion, the problem with car spawn isn’t just the head glitch, but also the fact that you can see two lanes from spawn,” noted Reddit user ReADropOfGoldenSun, “I think this could all be fixed if they moved the cardboard just a bit over so you can’t see the middle right off spawn.”

Other players, however, didn’t agree at all, claiming that are easy ways to get around the campers – either by simply hopping up on the balconies on the houses or using grenades.

It seems unlikely that the devs would make major changes to the gulag, unless their data shows that it’s completely broken and ruining the game. That might happen at a later date, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
