The latest patch update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is starting to roll out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with PC to follow. The patch is version 1.18 and is 11.8GB on PS4 and 12GB on Xbox One.

This new patch update brings the Days of Summer seasonal event, part of Operation Spectre Rising, to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PlayStation 4.

Check out more details on Days of Summer here.

From Treyarch:

Summer is Here!

Our Days of Summer seasonal game update is live today on PS4, delivering new content across Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies in the second half of Operation Spectre RisingClick here to watch the trailer, and let’s get into what’s new:MULTIPLAYER: Free Grind Map, Capture the Flag, New Weapons, Gameplay Tuning, League Play Update + More

Everyone’s favorite Black Ops 2 skatepark is back, and it’s free for all players! We’re excited to announce Grind is now available in rotation today in Multiplayer on PS4, and it’s just like you remember.

Capture the Flag launches today as our newest Featured Playlist on PS4! It’s classic CTF gameplay: grab your opponent’s flag, run it back to your base, protect your own flag at the spawn and get the capture. First team to capture three times or get the most captures wins the round, and the first team to win two rounds takes the match. Time to set up your best Lightweight loadout and hit the ground running.

Today’s update also brings a treasure trove of new and classic weapons for MP, with a Weapon Bribe at Tier 25 in the Contraband stream, the new Vendetta sniper rifle at Tier 50, and the S6 Stingray tactical rifle, Peacekeeper assault rifle, Locus bolt-action sniper rifle, and Ballistic Knife now available in the Black Market and unlockable through the Weapon Bribe.

We’ve also made some gameplay tuning changes to Spectre, Nomad, and Ajax in today’s update, as well as additional weapon tuning, an update to the SG-12 Strobe Light, and new restrictions in Bolt-Action Barebones. And in League Play, we’ve reinstated escalating temporary bans for players who leave mid-match to ensure fuller matches long-term, and made additional visual improvements to the overall World League Hub interface. Get all the specifics in the patch notes below.BLACKOUT: Summer Map Updates, Post-Flood Map, Ground War, Attack Helicopter, Hawk + More

Summer has arrived in Blackout! Days of Summer brings new summer lighting and foliage to the main map, along with new hidden Coolers containing Paint Can rewards, throwable Water Balloons, and seasonal decorations throughout the map including BBQ-themed parties, balloons, yard flamingos, flags, and pool floats.

Now that the flood is over, players will see changes all across the map: the floodwater has receded, Hydro Dam is under reconstruction, Factory is being repaired, Cargo Docks has been restored with new layout changes, and Hijacked has set sail for the cove at Nuketown Island.

Ground War makes its debut today with large-scale 50 vs. 50 warfare in Blackout! Drop in along your team’s flightpath or get behind enemy lines early on, and eliminate the opposing team to secure the win. More loot than usual will spawn throughout the map, ammo drops are doubled, and “Down But Not Out”-style redeploys are enabled to help keep the action going until the final circle. We’ve also disabled friendly fire in Ground War, and players can revive any downed players in their team, not just those in their immediate squad. Get out there and let us know what you think of the biggest battle ever in Call of Duty history.

Also live today in Blackout on PS4: take a ride in the new Attack Helicopter with two mounted heavy turrets, and deploy the Hawk to scout for enemies throughout the map. We’ve also added the new Coward’s Way Out feature in redeploy modes, allowing players to hold the USE button to reduce the time spent in the downed state. This can be used tactically to queue up in time for the next redeploy, or to simply get on with it if your friends can’t revive you in time.

Finally, while Ground War kicks off today on PS4, we’re bringing Ambush Solo to Xbox One and PC this week featuring solo play with snipers, knives, and launchers only – just like old-school Ambush. Enjoy!ZOMBIES: Labours of Hercules Gauntlet, New Weapons, Fan-Favorite Elixirs, New Mastercraft & MK II Weapon Support, Gauntlet Leaderboards + More

Zombies fans get plenty to sink their teeth into this week with a brand new Gauntlet, four new Epic Elixirs, new weapons, Gauntlet Leaderboards, new Mastercraft and MKII Weapon support, gameplay improvements, and more!

First up, the new Labours of Hercules Gauntlet is now live in “Ancient Evil” on PS4, featuring 30 new challenges to take on with your squad. Players on all platforms can also now track their standings against their friends and others in our new Gauntlet Leaderboards, tracking your Highest Round, Best Gold, Best Silver, Best Bronze, and Kills across all Gauntlets.

Next up, four fan-favorites arrive as Epic Elixirs in the Laboratory on PS4: Perkaholic, Near Death Experience, Reign Drops, and Shopping Free. In Black Ops 4 Zombies, Perkaholic gives the player all Loadout Perks plus six random extra Perks upon activation for a hell of an edge against the undead. With Perkaholic now in the mix, we’ve reduced the rarity of Perk Up from Epic to Legendary. Check the patch notes below for the specifics on each of the new Elixirs.

With today’s update, we’ve added support for new weapons and Mastercrafts in Zombies on PS4, including the S6 Stingray, Peacekeeper, Vendetta, Locus, and Ballistic Knife, as well as the latest MKII Weapons on all platforms, including the Rampage, Switchblade X9, Vapr-XKG, and Spitfire. We’ve also made gameplay improvements and implemented new bug fixes in “Ancient Evil” and “Dead of the Night” for a smoother zombie-slaying experience.

The team is currently hard at work on even more content for the remainder of Operation Spectre Rising – including the launch of Hard Mode Gauntlets and increased in-game rewards for Zombies players – as we prepare for our return to the Aether story in our next Operation in July. We can’t wait to share more details soon on where the Zombies saga is headed in DLC 3… stay tuned.

New Community Challenge

We’re excited to introduce our new Community Challenge in today’s update on PS4, allowing all players to do their part to earn a collective reward for the Black Ops 4 community. The Community Challenge will reward players with the fully-customizable Grav assault rifle in Multiplayer after the community has completed a total of 15 million public matches.

The Community Challenge has automatically activated for all players on PS4 as of 10AM PT today, and Blackout and Zombies players can also now customize the Grav assault rifle with full attachments in the Armory on PS4.

Contracts are Coming!

With our next major update in late June, we’re launching Contracts in Black Ops 4 to give players new ways to earn additional in-game rewards. We’ve heard your requests for more rewards through gameplay, and we’re designing Black Ops 4’s Contracts system to provide new benefits for playing your way.

Ranking the 10 best Call of Duty maps ever

In nearly 20 years of Call of Duty games, which maps do we consider to be the absolute best? Find out as we rank the top 10 CoD maps ever.

Published

on

best cod maps ever

After playing Call of Duty games for so many years, it’s often crossed our mind, which is the best CoD map of all time? So we’ve gone through them all, and come up with what we believe to be the 10 best ever, and ranked them.

Between Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Sledgehammer Games, and Raven Software, the franchise’s main developers have created some astonishingly good maps over the years. Some have stood the test of time, with some becoming recurring features in multiple CoD games.

We decided to take the unenviable task of going through every single Call of Duty online multiplayer map and trying to pick the top 10 ever. Some CoD games don’t feature at all, and that doesn’t necessarily mean they were bad games, it’s just that some did it better.

Here is our official ranking of Call of Duty’s 10 best maps ever.

10. The Pines

cod map the pines

Black Ops Cold War probably won’t go down in the annals as an all-time great, but it’s had plenty of highspots, including The Pines.

A throwback to a certain, classic 1980s film, The Pines has a great environment to explore with frantic battles in shops, lots of verticality, several perch-type spots, and the middle of the map is very accessible thanks to walls and its fountain.

Also, see where it ranked on our list of the best Black Ops Cold War maps!

9. Highrise

cod map highrise

Modern Warfare 2 gave birth to the craziness of 360 no-scoping, quickscoping, and various other ridiculous sniping tricks that would become permanently etched in the early days of YouTube.

Lots of players we know now got their start using Highrise to climb to fame, and that’s also because it’s a great map. You can always use either building to become engaged in heated battles and use them for range before inevitably flying down to the rooftop below for even more conflict.

8. Bloc

cod map bloc

On the other hand, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’s Bloc is probably the finest example of a sniping map in the series’ storied history.

Its predominant feature is the two opposing, war-torn apartment blocs that are quite literally set up for a battle of Sniper Rifles. It’s always great fun moving from window to window and changing floors to vary your attack. If that wasn’t your thing, then Bloc has plenty of avenues to storm both buildings and move around the edges of the map to ambush.

7. Rust

cod map rust

Before “1v1 me in the Gulag“, there was Rust. Taking the idea of a small map from CoD4’s Shipment, Rust still manages to create a small playground but added so many possibilities.

From its stairs-esque shaft to the ladder taking you to the top, there are so many ways you could get the jump on your opponent. Rust also has a myriad of crevices to move around in, making this tiny map feel massive.

6. Rammaza

cod map rammaza

Rammaza is not only a bright spot in an otherwise divisive 2019 Modern Warfare reboot, it’s also just a classic Call of Duty map.

With three different levels of fighting possible, a multitude of different ladders and stairs to allow fluid traversal, Rammaza is just big enough and has all its obstacles in the right place. It’s a great map on any game mode and one that we’d definitely like to see return.

5. Strike

cod map strike

There isn’t a wasted space in quite a sizable Strike map. The spawn points are well-hidden and it doesn’t feel bare in any parts.

It has several key spots such as the iconic middle building, the kitchen area, the houses near each spawn, and there are genuinely so many different ways to play it. Search & Destroy was a particular delight to play on Strike, and it’s aged very well.

4. Raid

cod map raid

Raid might be the most scenic and stunning map on this list with this luxurious hollywood home boasting incredible architecture, mega-expensive sports cars, and even its own basketball court.

The map just feels unique and underlines this by allowing you to swim under its pool. It’s well-connected by the middle’s garden area and again, firefights can literally take place anywhere on the map. It was one of Black Ops Cold War’s first classic maps to be added to the game, and that’s because it’s still incredibly popular to do this day.

3. Firing Range

cod map firing range

Another smaller map that manages to cram so much into it that it’s hard not to love. The concept is great as we’ve found ourselves on these practice ranges in multiple CoD games, so now actually trying to kill people on it feels apt.

Firing Range is a hotbed for high-scoring games, but unlike a map such as Nuketown, Firing Range feels fair and doesn’t feel like you’ll be spawn-trapped for multiple deaths in a row. It’s definitely the best “small” map in Call of Duty history and we’re sure we’ll be seeing it for multiple games to come.

2. Terminal

cod map terminal

To many, the top spot is always going to boil down between one of two maps, and our number two spot goes to Terminal. If the action had perhaps been locked down to only the outside or inside, then Terminal wouldn’t fair so well.

But thankfully it doesn’t, and it leads to lots of crazy matches with close-range combat, long-range sniping, and everything in-between. Terminal perfectly manages to capture the balance of gameplay, whilst providing a cool backdrop at the same time.

1. Crash

cod map crash

The best map honor goes to Crash. If the sight of that destroyed helicopter doesn’t make you feel nostalgic then you probably never played Call of Duty 4. Infinity Ward’s take on modern warfare changed first-person shooters forever, and Crash is symbolic of this.

Gone were the days of the arena shooter, Crash represented a new era of detailed, intricate, multi-channeled maps with new ways to play each time. Whether you stayed at the top of the street to snipe down a lane, or headed to the bottom to ascend the three-story building, Crash had everything and more to make a map you wanted to play time and time again.

Which is why we believe it’s the best map in Call of Duty history.

CoD leaker claims Modern Warfare 3 Campaign Remastered coming in 2021

Call of Duty fans could be set for huge nostalgia in 2021 with a remaster of the Modern Warfare 3 campaign expected to drop.

Published

on

cod modern warfare 3 remastered

Modern Warfare 3 looks set to follow in the footsteps of Modern Warfare 2 by releasing a remastered version of its campaign component. A leak has suggested that the Call of Duty content is scheduled for 2021.

There’s absolutely no doubting the impact that the Modern Warfare games have had on the video game industry. At the time, CoD’s 2011 launch made Modern Warfare 3 the most successful entertainment launch of all-time by grossing over $400 million in 24 hours.

The continued exploits of Captain Price, Soap, and the gang were massively sought after and people flocked to it in droves. Now, players will apparently get to revisit this classic campaign in 2021 with a leak hinting that Modern Warfare 3 Remastered is on the way.

call of duty modern warfare 3 gameplay

According to the MW2Ghost, “I was told that MW3 Campaign Remastered is definitely coming this year, and should be coming Q2 which is the original plan, one month exclusive to PlayStation.”

If true, this would follow a similar model to other previous Call of Duty content by declaring PlayStation to be its exclusive home for a while.

Black Ops Cold War has been an example of this with PlayStation users being treated exclusively to the game’s Onslaught mode. Modern Warfare 2 Remastered also released first on PlayStation.

MW2Ghost also followed this message up by saying, “Worded this a bit weird, so, it was originally set for Q2 of this year under a deal with PlayStation, but not sure if that’s still the case (date). Apparently, it’s definitely still coming at some point this year.”

Modern Warfare 2 remastered proved to be a financial victory for Activision, as people clamored for the epic campaign that helped to kickstart a generation.

With the extraordinary success of Warzone potentially affecting Call of Duty 2021, a remastered version of the Modern Warfare 3 campaign may have to keep fans ticking over until Call of Duty 2021 is announced.

How to play Rebirth Island in private matches

Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War has arrived in Warzone, and it has delivered the ability to play Rebirth Island in private matches.

Published

on

Rebirth Island Private Matches

Season 3 has officially arrived in Call of Duty: Warzone. It has brought plenty of changes, with one of the most notable is the ability to play private matches on Rebirth Island.

The first season of Black Ops Cold War content for Warzone saw Rebirth Island become the second map that players could battle on in the popular Call of Duty battle royale. The much smaller map and lower player count resulted in players being able to have quicker and even more intense matches than Verdansk.

While the community has been able to play private matches on Verdansk for some time now, the same has not been true for Rebirth Island, until now thanks to the Season 3 update for Warzone.

Rebirth Island Private Matches

How to Play Rebirth Island in Private Matches

Players looking to customize their experience on the smaller Warzone map and host their own exclusive matches now can, thanks to the addition of private matches to the Black Ops Cold War map for Warzone.

Individuals who would like to set up these kinds of games on this particular map will need to head into Warzone and click on the tab at the very bottom of the Warzone playlist where you find all of the different game modes that you can play currently.

You will then need to select which game mode you would like to play. Once you have selected the game mode, you will be sent to the lobby screen, where you will be able to go to the bottom of the screen and switch the map from Verdansk to Rebirth Island.

Make sure you have enough players in the lobby to start a match, and then press start match.

There is no doubt that the addition of this feature to Verdansk was a hit amongst the community and will likely be used a great deal by players throughout Season 3 who prefer to get their victories and highlights on the smaller Warzone map instead of its larger predecessor.

The addition of this feature is just one of the many changes that have arrived in Warzone by way of the Season 3 update. From new weapons like the PPSH and Swiss K31 to the Hunt for Adler event, community members will have plenty to enjoy for the foreseeable future.
