Recent Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Update Addresses Zombies Mode

By Caleb Greer, 3 months ago
In a Reddit post from October 17th, developer Treyarch announced that a global update has been released for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to specifically address crashing and stability issues in the popular Zombies mode. This has been a glaring issue since launch for casual players attempting to smash their high score, as well as those trying to complete the long and arduous Easter Eggs.

While not much more enlightening, the specific description of the update from Treyarch states:

  • Significant stability fixes across all Zombies maps, including fixes to the Easter Egg quests.
Furthermore, Treyarch confirmed other topics of concern that they are aware of and tracking.

These include:

Weapon Tuning
  • We’ve seen comments and requests around general weapon tuning since launch. We take weapon tuning very seriously and put any proposed tweaks through rigorous internal testing before we consider a change to the game. With that said, we’ve captured a massive amount of input and stats since October 12th, and we’re currently making a tuning pass for a major update coming soon. Stay tuned.
Vehicle Behavior in Blackout
  • If you frequent this subreddit, you’ve probably seen clips of some unexpected vehicle behavior in Blackout. We’re investigating the issue.
Death Stashes on Consoles
  • Some players have reported freezing issues when looting a Death Stash in Blackout on consoles. We’re currently working on a fix for this in the near future.
Progression Losses
  • We’ve continued to track issues related to connection timeouts that lead to a loss in stats/recently unlocked camos. We’re planning a fix for this later this week.
Finally, the post concludes with a statement regarding the Featured Playlists for Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies that you can check out on the home screen. They note that these will be constantly rotating and sometimes include double XP and other modifiers. Also, the "Featured" category in Multiplayer will be constantly rotating playlists that include mashups, new modes, altered versions of normal modes, and more.

It appears Treyarch is invested in keeping players satisfied with the latest installment of the franchise.
