Call of Duty Black Ops 4 fans can download a big new update on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The new Black Ops 4 patch makes some controversial changes, as the 9-Bang is removed from Blackout.

According to the patch notes, Treyarch is evaluating its “place in the gameplay loop”.

The weapons have undergone some big changes in Blackout, as Treyarch continues to balance the game.

Updates include reduced recoil, increased muzzle velocity and improvements to light-machine guns.

Needless to say, fans can also expect one or two bug fixes and some multiplayer match changes.

You can check out the full list of Black Ops 4 patch notes below…


Playlist Updates

  • Blightfather added to all playlists.

  • 100-Player Quads added to the Featured playlist.

  • Maximum players in Solo and Duos playlists changed to 88.

Character Missions

  • Zombies Chaos Storyline Character Missions now available (Bruno, Diego, Scarlett, and Shaw).

  • Increased drop rates of Character Mission items.

Weapons (Blackout Only)

  • Submachine Guns

    • Increased muzzle velocity on all SMGs. This should provide more consistent gunfights when in SMG range, along with ensuring that SMGs perform as expected in their intended power band when compared to Assault Rifles in Blackout.

    • Spitfire

      • Reduced recoil.

  • Assault Rifles

    • Rampart 17

      • Reduced ADS sway.

      • Reduced recoil.

  • Tactical Rifles

    • Auger DMR

      • Increased re-center speed. We slowed down the re-center due to high performance in our Blackout beta, but have seen the AUGER slightly underperform since release.

      • Slightly increased muzzle velocity. This should make for more predictable shots when firing at a moving target within the Auger’s intended ranges.

  • Swordfish

  • Light Machine Guns

    • While some players have found success with the LMGs in Blackout, they’re still being passed over by the large majority of players. These changes should help make LMGs more manageable when providing cover fire or engaging targets at range.

    • Titan

    • VKM 750

    • Hades

Equipment (Blackout Only)

  • 9-Bang

  • Concussion Grenade
