New Black Ops 4 Update Rolls Out; Full Patch Notes Listed

Treyarch has released another update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Only minor changes are being made to Blackout, but the update makes larger changes to Multiplayer and Zombies.

For Blackout, the update fixes an issue that allowed helicopters to fly outside of the circle on Ambush without malfunctioning. If you try to do so now, you’re going to crash. Ambush is the newest game type in Black Ops 4’s battle royale mode. It features a rapidly closing safe zone and limits players to sniper rifles, launchers, and melee weapons. Ambush will only be available for a limited-time.

Larger changes have come to Multiplayer and Zombies in the new update. In the former, the issues that allowed 9-Bang to be used more than once per round in Heist and caused stability problems in Search & Destroy have been fixed. Mercenary Nuketown has also been added as a Featured Playlist, with Hardcore Nuketown, Mercenary Capture Moshpit, and Endurance Chaos Moshpit being added to the Featured category rotation. For Zombies, the update fixes several different exploits and glitches that have been plaguing some of the weapons.

For the complete list of changes now live in Black Ops 4, check out the full patch notes on Reddit. We’ve also outlined the highlights below.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
