Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Game Settings Update Touches Spawn Issues, Auto Mantling and More

Share this:

While Treyarch just pumped out a major 9GB patch yesterday for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, it seems today’s Black Ops 4 game settings update (server-side hotfix) also includes a few fixes alongside the activation of the quad feed event.

Spawn logic, auto mantling and more have been tweaked (tweaked not fixed for spawns) and you can read about them below (via Reddit).

Spawns

We’ve identified and resolved an issue with the spawn logic in round-based respawn game modes. This specific issue particularly affected Domination and Control after the first round, in which the spawn system would improperly assess enemy proximity when selecting a respawn location. While this doesn’t resolve all issues that we’re currently tracking to improve with the spawn system, it should reduce the overall percentage of bad spawns experienced in these modes, specifically in rounds two and higher.

Auto Mantle Toggle

We’ve added an option to toggle Auto Mantle in the Controls options menu, now set to “Off” by default. Toggling Auto Mantle on will allow you to mantle without pressing the jump button again when jumping toward a surface that you intend to mantle onto. Toggling Auto Mantle off will require you to hold the jump button to mantle onto your intended surface, or press the jump button once you’ve reached the surface you intend to mantle onto.

Speaking of movement options, we’ve also heard the requests for an Auto-Sprint option for console players, and are currently working on getting that into the game after it’s been put through proper testing. When enabled, this will allow you to double-click your left analog stick to allow your character to automatically sprint without further input. Keep an eye out for future announcements regarding this feature.

Our latest PC title update also went live earlier today, which includes yesterday’s global changes as well as PC-exclusive updates. Get the full details at our dedicated PC community update. Now, onto what’s new today…
