Today marks the launch of the 1.10 title update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The update also brings Operation Absolute Zero to Xbox One and PC, but that’s old news to us. That said, there are plenty of changes in the update for the PlayStation 4 version as well, from cracking the door to Specialists in Blackout wide open, to other new features such as Contraband Stashes.
For the PlayStation 4 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, two new Blackout updates have arrived. The first automatically updates all Specialist characters in Blackout mode, as Treyarch has shifted to wanting players to have access to the full range of those options out of the gate. Character Missions have been changed to Outfit Unlocks, which give players The Numbers outfits for each Specialist upon completion. Anything completed before the update will pay out retroactively. Contraband Stashes are also introduced, which are a new kind of Supply Stash that dish out special holiday items, including the Secret Santa and Slay Bell melee weapons.
Now that the exclusive stuff is out of the way, here are the full multiplatform patch notes. For the stuff only pertaining to the Xbox One and PC versions, you can check out the original Reddit post from Treyarch, via our source link below the gallery.
