Treyarch Reveals Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Update 1.12
Treyarch has made it known that they’re committed to making Black Ops 4 as fun as possible and they’ve lived up to their word listening to community feedback with continuous updates. After taking some time off for the holidays it seems they’re back with a brand new update, 1.12, set to launch on PS4 first next week. Update 1.12 is set to bring some fresh new changes to all game modes.
Beginning on Tuesday, Treyarch is dropping some big changes, including some new game modes and some miscellaneous fixes. The developer has also announced that we can expect some big news with regard to League Play, “We’ll have more news to share next week about the upcoming rollout of League Play and the World League Hub. We’ve made some fundamental changes to Black Ops 4’s Ranked system since we first announced our plans, as well as numerous important updates to the CWL ruleset that will change how the game is played competitively for the better. Stay tuned for more intel soon.”
With many players jumping into the fray of Blackout there’s no denying just how reliant some players are on grenades, as well as armor. As such, there are some tune ups coming as well as the brand new game mode Ambush, which will replace Down But Not Out.
- Reduced damage protection for Armor across the board (Levels 1-3)
- Level 3 Armor will no longer include additional damage protection against explosions and melee attacks
- Increased Armor Plate requirements to repair Level 3 Armor
- Reduced status effect duration, area of effect radius, and throw distance for Concussion grenades
- More options to outplay attackers when hit by a Concussion grenade
- Increased time to detonate for Cluster Grenades
- Damage reduction for mini-Cluster Grenade explosions
So what’s incoming to Zombies? Treyarch is releasing five new weapons, set to be available both in the mystery boxes and in the armory. Here’s what they had to say about it in their reddit post, “Five additional weapons are coming to Zombies next week! We’re adding the MP 40, Grav, Daemon 3XB, SWAT RFT, and KAP 45 to the Mystery Box across every Black Ops 4 Zombies map for all players, as well as the Zombies Armory for full camo progression and customization. Classic weapons (MP 40 and Grav) will be unlocked by default in the Armory, and customization for loot weapons will become available in the Armory as they’re unlocked in the Black Market.”
Lastly, there’s an updated version of everyone’s favorite game mode: gun game, coming to multiplayer. “Blackjack is back with an updated selection for this special take on Gun Game, now featuring the KAP 45 full-auto pistol in the mix. You know the deal: survive an all-out free-for-all with a different weapon awarded for each kill, and a demotion for death by melee. Be the first to get through the full arsenal before everyone else to secure the win.”
