Buying All the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Black Market Items Will Cost You Over $1,300

black ops 4 new update

Have you ever bought an item in Call of Duty: Black Op’s Black Market? Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to buy every single thing available? Well, we know the answer to that now. It seems the Black Ops 4 Black Market items total cost is over a staggering $1,300!

Over on the Black Ops 4 subreddit, user Squiggly998 posted a computation of it basing the price on every Operation that Treyarch has released so far. The grand total for buying all the Black Ops 4 Black Market items is at a pretty $1,324.48 (USD), and note that this does not include tiers, Reserves, or any items that are available for purchase in Operation Apocalypse Z, and this only accounts for items that have been available for purchase in the Black Market from all the completed Operations (Apocalypse Z is still currently on-going).

This is a breakdown of how much you’d spend on each Black Ops 4 Operation to get all the items available in that Operation’s Black Market:

Operation First Strike:

CoD Points = 44,900 CP

USD = $345.35

AUD = $490.41

CAD = $451.49

Operation Absolute Zero:

CoD Points = 55,100 CP

USD = $423.80

AUD = $601.82

CAD = $554.05

Operation Grand Heist:

CoD Points = 28,300 CP

USD = $217.67

AUD = $309.10

CAD = $284.57

Operation Spectre Rising:

CoD Points = 20,100 CP

USD = $154.60

AUD = $219.54

CAD = $202.12

Operation Days of Summer:

CoD Points = 23,800 CP

USD = $183.06

AUD = $259.95

CAD = $239.32

Grand Total:

CoD Points = 172,200 CP

USD = $1,324.48

AUD = $1,880.83

CAD = $1,731.56

Doing the math, if you bought the game at launch for its usual price of $60, you’d have spent 22x the amount of the base game just to buy everything from Blackjack’s shop.

Needless to say, this has not gone over well with the community, with the post now at over 3,000 upvotes and counting, and users calling for pro consumer organizations to take a peek at what’s happening. What might be even sadder than the total amount being this high is you just know that someone paid this amount or close to it to get every little doodad in the game.

While we’ve already reported (numerous times) on how unpleasant the whole Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Black Market has been so far for players, who would have guessed that it’d cost this much just to get every virtual item in game so far?

Let’s hope that this year’s Modern Warfare won’t have the same microtransaction system that Black Ops 4 currently employs, though I wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

  1. Even games that seem to do it “harmlessly” are guilty. Take Overwatch. I’m sure it would cost a pretty penny to get everything and they hand out duplicates.

    Remember when games used to just have a ton more things like cosmetics and it was all free, in game, and generally taken for granted? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
