The update, which went live across all platforms on October 24, introduces some major changes throughout the game’s three modes – Multiplayer, Zombies, and Blackout. 

There are some major issues in the game that have been addressed in this update, such as the recent glitch that was allowing players to go underground on the Morocco Multiplayer map.

Additionally, a major nerf has been implemented to the 9-Bang throwable item in Blackout, which now has both an increased charge time and fuse time before detonation.


The 9-Bang was arguably the most discussed item in Blackout among the player-base, as many often complained about how overpowered its effects can be.

In addition to the implemented changes and fixes, Treyarch also announced what they’ve been working on for Black Ops 4 in future updates. 

There is also a major game update coming in the near future that will address weapon balancing and critical audio issues in Blackout. More information about both of those topics can be seen HERE.
