Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 New Update Introduces Black Market Revamp & More

Share this:

Those still playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which I gather, is still a pretty big bunch, a Black Ops 4 new update has been released by Treyarch that brings the Black Market revamp, introduces new rewards and more!

Black Ops 4 new update changes:

Black Market Revamp: Earn Weapons and Items in Blackjack’s Shop
  • Pick-a-Weapon Bribe: Trade in 50 Reserve Cases to unlock a weapon of your choice from a Crate that also includes 2 Reserve items, along with a bonus of 5 Duplicate-Protected Crates for 15 additional Reserve items. Choose from a selection of base weapons, Mastercrafts, MKII weapons, Signature Weapons, and even the new MicroMG 9mm SMG or Eye of Apophis melee weapon. Watch for this bundle to refresh on a regular basis in the future.

  • Reserves Stack: This new rotating offer displays a Reserve item that you don’t currently own, which can be unlocked by trading in 2 Reserve Cases. With the Reserves Stack, you’ll be able to see Reserve items before acquiring them. This offer will refresh to reveal a new item on a regular basis and refreshes instantly after acquiring the current item on display.

  • My Deals: Two new rotating offers can now be unlocked with Reserve Cases and will always showcase items that you don’t currently own. Like the Reserves Stack, these will refresh on a regular basis, or instantly after the current item on display has been acquired.

New Rewards and New Zombies Gauntlet on Xbox One + PC

Today’s update introduces a new collection of Black Market rewards to earn on Xbox One and PC, including the new “MicroMG 9mm” SMG, “Eye of Apophis” amulet weapon, “Pentagon Thief” Blackout character, as well as new Reactive Camos, weapon camos, outfits, Death Effects, Weapon Charms, and more. If you haven’t seen the Eye of Apophis in action yet (or been on the receiving end of one)… it’s pretty wild.

2XP Stockpile in Multiplayer

Our second 2XP Featured Playlist joins the MP rotation this week with the return of Stockpile! We’ve had plenty of requests for this one to come back since its debut, so get in there and rank up all week long while it’s in the spotlight. Party game fans should keep an eye out for 2XP Prop Hunt coming to all platforms next Tuesday.

Weapon Charm/Death Effect Bug Fix

This update also fixes the pesky bug that prevented certain Weapon Charms and Death Effects from staying equipped after a match. This one has proven especially tough to nail down, so please let us know if you’re still experiencing this issue after today’s game update.
