With the launch of Operation Spectre Rising for Black Ops 4 on April 30, the Blackout map sees a big update as Hydro Dam has been exploded and water has filled throughout the map. The new update is called “Wetworks” map update.

Players will face water across the entire Blackout map with this new update, one of the biggest changes to the Blackout map since the game’s launch. Most areas are now flooded which means boats will play a big role during this Operation.
