First debuted last week on PlayStation 4, the new Gauntlet feature, alongside brand new elixirs is coming to Xbox One and PC to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on January 22, 2019.

Treyarch announced this feature prior to launch, but held the release till the stability issues surrounding Zombies were fully addresses. Treyarch launched the Gauntlet feature on 115 Day on PlayStation 4, and now the new feature is coming to Xbox One and PC on January 22. There’s only one Gauntlet available, with another coming later this month.

We’re excited to debut Gauntlets in Zombies starting with “Unsinkable” in Voyage of Despair! Gauntlets in Zombies are endlessly-replayable, 30-round challenges with unique rules governing gameplay in each round. Players earn medals and tiered rewards for completing rounds 10, 20, and 30, as well as a unique reward to adorn your Emblem for completing round 30 without failing a round. Sound easy? Think again.

The rules of engagement change each round, including weapon restrictions, area defense challenges, health-drain modifiers, time limitations, and much more. You and your crew will earn a Strike by failing a round, and after three Strikes, it’s game over. Mastering all 30 rounds will test the skills of even the most seasoned veterans, and only the best zombie killers will conquer an entire Gauntlet with zero Strikes.

Here’s what’s coming on Xbox One and PC:

  • Gauntlets
    • Unsinkable” Gauntlet live in Voyage of Despair.
    • 30 rounds of challenges with unique rules for each round.
    • Players earn medals and tiered rewards for completing rounds 10, 20, and 30, as well as an additional reward for completing round 30 without failing a round.
    • Players are issued a Strike by failing a round, with the game ending after three Strikes.
    • All matches are timed for competitive speed-run support.
  • New Elixirs
    • Perk Up (Epic): Gain 4 additional random Perks that are not in your loadout.
    • Refresh Mint (Epic): Refreshes the cooldowns for Equipment, Perks, and Special Weapons for your entire team.
    • Conflagration Liquidation (Epic): Spawn a Bonfire Sale power-up.
