Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Game Settings Update Include “First Phase’ of Network Configuration, Black Market Earn Rate Tweaks

Share this:

While we reported that the Mercenary Capture Moshpit playlist is now available in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, it seems the server-side update has more in it than just that. Treyarch has listed the Black Ops 4 game settings update and it should please fans.

According to Treyarch, as of today, the studio has completed the “first phase” of planned changes to network configuration in targeted locations. Once monitoring is finished to ensure overall performance is running up to par, the studio will then begin the next phase of network updates. No word on whether this means 60hz servers are now running for some regions/areas, or if it’s still at 20hz and they did something to make it more manageable.

    • We’re aware that matches in Zombies have been ending when the host leaves the game, and we’re planning a future update to address this. Thanks for your patience as we work on the solution.
