The latest Game Settings Update is live in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 across platforms, bringing 2XP for the weekend and some bug fixes.

Here’s the details on the update:

Between Barebones in MP, “Ancient Evil” in Zombies, Hardcore in Blackout, and this week’s new ranks in League Play, there’s a whole lot to celebrate in Black Ops 4 this week, and we’re kicking off the weekend the best way we know how.

2XP + 2X Merits Weekend

Now live through 10AM Monday, April 1, players on all platforms get the following:

  • 2XP in Multiplayer
  • 2XP in Zombies
  • 2XP in League Play
  • 2X Merits in Blackout

Go forth and rank up!

Weapon Tuning: Rampart and Saug 9mm

The Rampart has been slightly overperforming in its weapon class lately, so we’ve got some tuning changes in this update. Damage per shot has been reduced a bit from 46 to 40, High Caliber shots do 70 damage per hit to parts of the body affected by High Caliber, and ADS-in speed has been slightly reduced to better balance the Rampart against the rest of the assault rifles in the current meta.

We’ve also slightly increased the 6-shot range on the Saug 9mm SMG, and for those OCD players running the Daemon 3XB with iron sights, we’ve realigned a couple of pixels to make it 100% dead-center. Yeah, it was bothering us too.

Read below for the rest of today’s updates, including a fix for Reactive Camos in Custom Games, restored Dart functionality, several stability and gameplay improvements in “Ancient Evil” for Zombies players, and more.

  • 2XP + 2X Merits Weekend now live on all platforms.
  • Weapon tuning for Rampart and Saug 9mm.
  • Fix for Dart functionality in Multiplayer.
  • Unwrapped Reactive Camos now longer show as wrapped in Custom Games.
  • Various gameplay improvements and stability fixes in Zombies.
