In case you haven’t been keeping up with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 news, the community was up in arms last week due to the revelation that the Black Ops 4 server tick rates was running at only 20hz, and not at 60hz which was the tick rate during the beta.
Thankfully, Treyarch addressed the issue, and said that they will improve it, with the first phase of upgrades already rolled out. While Treyarch has been vague regarding what got changed and to what, so much so that the community is clamoring for some transparency and a roadmap, it seems Black Ops 4 PC players are already enjoying the benefits of improved Black Ops 4 server tick rates!
Over on Reddit, user soja92 conducted some tests and found out that the Black Ops 4 PC servers are now at 62hz currently, and what’s more, some of the PS4 servers are running that too! Note that this applies to multiplayer, and it’s not rolled out for everyone in the world just yet.

Some servers in Europe are already running at 60hz (like Belgium), though it might not be the same case for everyone. It seems this server upgrade roll out is live in North America, with Europe slowly getting the update, but no word on how or when Asia will get it.
