Treyarch has shared a blog post discussing some weapon tuning updates, as well as information on what to expect in Black Ops 4, including when to expect more details on contracts.

More details on Contracts are coming next week.

Here’s the news from Treyarch:

New Weapon Tuning

On Tuesday, we tuned the Ballistic Knife and S6 Stingray to better match their performance with the rest of the game’s arsenal. In today’s update, we’ve reduced the damage ranges on the Peacekeeper to ensure better balance against other assault rifles, and we agreed with many of you that the Operator Mod on the S6 Stingray proved too strong with its original rate of fire. As a result, we’ve increased the burst delay between shots, giving players more time to evade the Stingray’s projectiles and reducing potential damage per burst with the Operator Mod.

Whether it’s brand new or a returning favorite, we design each weapon to feature a unique gameplay profile that feels fun to use while remaining balanced against other weapons. When that balance doesn’t seem quite right for any particular weapon, we’ll make tuning changes using a combination of back-end data and community feedback to keep the meta competitive and fresh for every weapon class. This is a design philosophy that we’ve upheld since the beginning of the series and will continue to maintain to ensure every play style can thrive.

Grind Weekend Playlist Now Live on All Platforms

Our Grind playlist is now live through 10AM PT Tuesday for all players, so get out there and get some wins in our new free MP map. We’re happy to bring this Black Ops II classic back for a new generation and we’re excited to see what you can do in it in Black Ops 4.

CWL Anaheim Begins Today

It’s finally here… the most iconic CWL event of the season kicks off today at 2PM PT with CWL Anaheim! This event is expected to surpass CWL Fort Worth as the most-attended open event in CWL history, with 16 Pro League teams competing in the Pro tournament and over 100 amateur teams fighting it out in the Open Bracket.

Much More to Come

Watch for our Treyarch Blog next week with full details on Black Ops 4’s upcoming Contracts system, including specifics on contract types, challenges, and rewards. As we mentioned earlier this week, we’re expanding the system to offer more contracts to choose from each day compared to previous games.

We’ve heard your requests for a wider variety of maps in Prop Hunt, and we’re planning to expand the map selection for both Prop Hunt and Capture the Flag in the near future. We’re also tracking an issue preventing MKII Weapons from leveling up properly, and we’re investigating a fix for an upcoming update. This update also fixes a Buy menu exploit in Heist and a recent issue with optics displaying properly on the Locus. Thanks as always for your reports and patience while we tackle new bugs as they come in.

Here’s what’s new with today’s update:
