  1. General

    • General stability improvements and crash fixes.

    • The Featured playlist tiles for Multiplayer and Blackout have changed today. This is part of the regular rotation of Featured playlists – more details to come on how Featured playlists will work in Black Ops 4 in a separate update.



    • 100-Players Duos is now the Featured playlist for Blackout.

    • Quads playlist is now 88 maximum players. We’re continuing to update various game settings to ensure the best experience for all players across all platforms and modes.



    • Playlist Updates
      • TDM playlist now supports parties of 6 (was previously 5).
      • Featured playlist changed to Heist.
    • Custom Games
      • Custom Search and Destroy games will now correctly conclude after one team wins 6 rounds total, fixing an issue where custom games previously ended at round 7.

    • Miscellaneous

      • Addressed a crash caused by earning multiple Medals in a match.



    • Addressed a UI error caused by losing Internet connection in split screen.



    • Stability Improvements

      • Fixed a crash occurring during initial boot of the game for some users.

      • Fixed a crash when disconnecting from a Blackout match.

      • Fixed a crash occurring when managing multiple windows simultaneously in Blackout.

      • Fixed a crash when browsing unlockable Items.

      • Fixed crashes occurring when changing texture quality.

      • Fixed a performance issue when changing Clan tags.

      • Improved handling of “Out of Memory” errors.

      • Additional stability fixes listed in today’s update from /u/TreyarchPC: https://www.reddit.com/r/Blackops4/comments/9oqgsd/call_of_duty_black_ops_4_pc_updates/
    • Zombies
      • Addressed an issue that caused Hellhounds to exhibit some very... un-doglike behavior in Zombies.
    • Miscellaneous
      • “Object View Distance” setting now properly renders objects further on “High” than on “Low” in Blackout.

    In addition to the topics listed in our previous updates over the past week, we’re currently tracking the following recent topics:

    • Zombies Easter Egg Quests
      • We’re aware of some instability issues currently affecting the Easter Egg quests, and will address these in a major update coming soon. Thanks for your patience.

      Multiplayer Audio
      • We’ve seen some reports of audio volumes in Multiplayer not sounding quite as expected, particularly with footsteps. We’ve passed these onto the appropriate teams for evaluation. In the meantime, please be sure to try out the different custom presets in our Audio settings under Options to find a mix that works best for you.

    • PC Hellion Salvo Crash
      • PC players will currently crash when equipping the “Hunt” weapon camo and Fast Lock attachment on the Hellion Salvo launcher. We’re fixing this in an upcoming update – in the meantime, please avoid using this camo/Attachment combination on the Hellion Salvo to prevent crashing.

    • Teammate Names Disappearing
      • Some players are reportedly seeing their teammates’ player names disappearing temporarily during MP matches, making it difficult to tell friend from foe. We’re investigating this as well.

    • Xbox One Deluxe Edition Items
      • We’re aware some users are still having trouble accessing their Shadowman and Classified content consistently on Xbox One, even after manually downloading the items. We’re continuing to investigate to see what can be done on our end to solve this.

  2. In the new update released today, duos have been bumped from 88 to 100 players. Quads have been dropped from 100 players to 88, presumably because of the stuttering some (many?) players were experiencing. Here's a the rest of Blackout-specific updates but I recommend looking at the whole list I linked:


    - Fixed a crash when disconnecting from a Blackout match

    - Fixed a crash occurring when managing multiple windows simultaneously in Blackout

    - [PC] “Object View Distance” setting now properly renders objects further on “High” than on “Low” in Blackout


    What do you think of these changes? I can't wait to jump into duos!

  3. Piggybacking here, a friendly reminder to all that I absolutely never follow is please don't drive and talk with people about the game! As much as it may not seem like it, your next response on the site or discord server can wait until you get to your destination! If you feel you must be engaged in the conversation, maybe just consume instead of contribute. Find a way to be safe people!

    I'd rather play as Stuhlinger. :C

    Oh man that would be awesome. I forgot what Vondy said about Nero in the Game Informer interview but that would be cool too.


    I'm so curious what these challenges will be to get the characters. Things like 'use the war machine to unlock battery' make sense to me but how for the zombies characters? Hopefully more than 'kill x amount of zombies in Blackout'. Or maybe that's not a bad thing idk

  5. Hello all,


    I am Dr. Tac. I will be your therapist today, please sit down on that comfy couch and hold this controller 🎮. Just answer my questions as truthfully as you can. Your significant other (Treyarch) may actually be listening in on us right now, so let them know how you feel.


    How are you and Blackout doing, are you spending a lot of time together? Which stage of the relationship are you in?


    ❤️ 🤯 👍 😂 😭 😠 🤬


    What's your least favorite thing about them? Is it the way they make loud noises even if they're far away? Do you feel like sometimes they put up Level 3 armor and you can't get through to them? Maybe sometimes they're just a bit slow?


    What do you like the most so far? Maybe they let you take the truck to get large red grocery crates whenever you want. Rumor has it they'll finally let you get a new backpack so you don't look as dorky to all your friends and family.


    Whatever it is, tell me.

    I would love to see it start backwards. By that I mean, I want to be able to get to the Situation Room as part of the Easter egg. I think it would be a nice touch to start us out somewhere deeper in the Pentagon and that part of the map will be available but not the whole thing. I think it would be really cool to have to go into the older parts of the map to secure things that was left behind during the first iteration. I do not want to see a complete copy of 5!

    This is how I feel as well. I think it would be interesting to be in a deeper part of the Pentagon. Maybe Zombie Labs stuff haha?


    Also, what @anonymous said. GIMME DA BACKSTORY BB

    The map very well could be post-Moon for the characters but it can’t be post-Moon for the Earth itself. Blundell said Classified will tell the story of the outbreak of the Pentagon prior to Five.

    Do you have a link to that? I don't doubt you but I've missed a lot and would love to see that 😍

  8. So our lads at Treyarch just tweeted a Zombies timeline after the reveal with JCbackfire:



    In that tweet, they provided an interactive DESKTOP-ONLY web page containing vital information, Keeper language, and an interesting map of how our crew traveled. There are so many different elements to look into with it, that I will keep updating this thread with all new pieces regarding the lore from each map, important events, and what the Keeper language translates to.

  9. Ciphers






    Dr. Maxis: Where are they? They should have arrived by now.

    Dr. Monty: Oh Maxis, you worry too much. In fact, aside from worrying, what do you do these days? Far as I can tell, you just repeat whatever I say in radio messages! No offense, of course, it's important to feel relevant.  Big fan of what you do.

    Dr. Maxis: Look, they're here!

    Dr. Monty: Well well well, sometimes free will does work out.  Look at how he's used it, trying to right wrongs instead of skulking about in the house talking into a microphone.

    *Sirens sound*

    Dr. Maxis: Put the toys away children. Make sure the windows are locked before you come down to the basement.

    Dr. Monty: Good call on the windows there, Max. This whole process can get a bit... messy.




    Dr. Monty


    In retrospect, it wasn't the best idea to leave the most powerful artifact in this, or any other dimension, just lying on the fucking table! But in all fairness, Maxis was a bit of a wild card. I mean you remember, he was actually just a little drone the last time you saw him. Anyway, he's in the Summoning Key now, and I know how we're gonna get him out.


    Okay, I think I've found a way to talk to you. Given all of the shit hitting the fan, there's not much I can do except give you a bit of encouragement. How about I give you some facts.. little ones.. quick ones.. fun ones.. It'll be good for morale.


    Right, here we go. It's a bit like the news, this.. I mean reading it, on television.. Sorry, I-I-I'm rambling. You should see what the Shadowman's doing back here aha, okay? Apparently, Richtofen's got a problem with nuts. Make of that what you will.


    If anything else, I should probably clarify. This. Is. It. The Aether. The Infinite. Otherwise known as Agartha. Or is Ar-gar-tha? Well whatever way you slice it, or spell it, it's the reality beyond. Beyond the world you know. Beyond your perception. Just so we're clear, I'm absolutely not talking about death, that's a whole other can of worms. Speaking of which, you know how people say when you cut a worm in half, both parts keep on living? Well, they do! Kind of.. for a bit. But then one of them dies, not sure if it's the ass or the head, but that's the problem with worms! They're a bit short on distinguishing features. Ehh, what was the point I was making?


    In the beginning, and believe me there was a beginning, everything was in its proper place. Time was linear, just as it should be. But a little thing called Element 115 changed all that. Especially when, what was it again? Oh yes, when Group 935 came along. Once they started messing around with it, they buggered everything up. 115 shouldn't even exist in your dimension! But, nonetheless, here we are! Bloody teleporters.


    Once Element 115 came along, the Apothicons weren't far behind. Have I mentioned them yet? The Apothicons are beings that feed on energy. Wait, that's an oversimplification. Energy is a rather broad term. It may be better to explain it as the spark of life, the purest form of energy that ever existed. Is that better? Hmm not sure.. sounds a bit hippity-dippity new-agey when I said it out loud. Anyway, this energy, the Apothicons feed on it. They conquer and consume dimensions, it's kind of.. their thing. The ball-crushingly bad thing is that their appetite is ferocious, veracious, insatiable even. They're hungry. Very hungry. Bottom line, if you don't sort shit out, they're going to gobble up this universe just like they gobbled up so many others.


    The Keepers, an ancient order who've been granted the wisdom to see beyond the limitations of their own realm. Even while the rest of mankind scrabbled around in the dirt, drinking their own piss, the Keepers took the mantle of benevolent watchers. Like the seers and sages of the old world, they could see how the actions of the Apothicons would lead to the destruction of life itself, the keepers have always been here. Much like your good selves, they too were scattered and fragmented across the multiverse. They may have acted erratically but know this, their actions were only ever concerned with the preservation of life itself. Remember what I said before about energy?




    The Shadowman


    Your sins serve only as an invitation... an invitation to an evil beyond your imagination. I will lead the way. I will show you the path. Only through me, the Shadowman, will you find your redemption.


    You do realize that he's manipulated you? That's what he does. Dr. Monty is just one of the many names he's been known by. The Great Dragon, The Beast.. is this ringing any bells? Beelzebub? Lucifer? Satan? The Devil?


    He's not even a real doctor.. I would know. I know what you did Richtofen! I know you found the Kronorium. You have suffered long enough. Why do you not embrace the cruel warmth of the Apothicons? All your pain, all your suffering, could be at an end. That is what you want, isn't it?


    Do you not see the power Dr. Monty holds over you? Do you not see you're being deceived? I can help you! Only through me can you find salvation!


    You do know Richtofen is a friend of mine, now I say friend, but really he's so much more than that. At one point, I almost considered him my apprentice. I mean, he did stab my reported friend, and steal the summoning key. At one point he did everything I told him to. I keep hoping he will remember the promise he made to me, so long ago.
