While Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is already out and being played feverishly by gamers around the world, one thing that’s curiously missing are the Supply Drops (what Call of Duty calls its loot boxes) that has been present in the past few Call of Duty titles this generation. Since launch, Treyarch, nor Activision has not mentioned or hinted at Black Ops 4 Supply Drops, and now we know why.
Over on Reddit, user GrandPaladin22 mentioned how his friend contacted Activision Support regarding something about the game, but also asked when Supply Drops will be coming to Black Ops 4.
The Activision Support rep mentioned that there is “a new way” of getting the items, you want, which heavily suggests that microtransactions will still be in Black Ops 4, which isn’t surprising at all.
Of course, there is the chance that the customer service rep doesn’t know the full story. Nonetheless, we’ve contacted Activision for a statement and will update the story if and when we get a response.
