If you’re a Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Xbox One player, and you were hoping to binge this coming holidays, you might not be able to do that, as the game seems to have a crash problem currently on the platform. To be more specific, there’s a Black Ops 4 Blackout crashing Xbox One issue, and it’s gaining a lot of movement on the official Black Ops 4 subreddit.
User MouthForWar86 posted a detailed description of what Black Ops 4 Xbox One players have been experiencing the past few days.
But this problem has literally made the game unplayable for countless users. There are threads upon threads about it, some with hundreds of upvotes and comments.
One X users, regardless of drive type, resolution, in game events, or anything else, are consistently having their game freeze and crash in late-stage Blackout gameplay (top 5-15 or so). There are some outliers regarding timing, and apparently the issue is also infrequently affecting PC and Xbox One as well, but it has primarily been a One X issue.
While you’re patting yourself on the back and posting threads detailing fixes for camo and all sorts of piddly crap, a HUGE and growing percentage of us can’t even play the game. But what’s worse is that we’ve gotten zero indication that you’re even aware of the issue.
What exacerbates the issue for most is how silent Treyarch has been, with nary a “we’re aware of the issue and working on a fix” statement from the developers.
Thankfully, though, Reddit user primosauce seems to have found an unofficial Black Ops 4 Blackout crashing Xbox One fix! Check out the steps below, which is super easy to do.
