Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Update 1.22 Adds Infected: Final Stand, Pandemic Modes

Attention! Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Update 1.22 incoming! Hope you’re ready for zombies, because the Infected are swarming. Infected: Last Stand is bringing the sickness to multiplayer, while those heading into the battle royale will find quite a Pandemic in Blackout. Even Zombies has a new Duck and Cover Gauntlet.

Infected: Final Stand is now in Black Ops 4‘s featured playlist in multiplayer. The mode sees a team of survivors pitted against a team of zombies. The survivors only have one life, but can be revived when downed, and the zombies have a limited amount of lives. The goal of the survivors is to either eliminate all of the zombies or survive until the time runs out, and the goal of the zombies is to eliminate all of the survivors. Teams rotate every round, and the team who wins four rounds first will win the match.

A new limited time game mode, known as Pandemic, has been added into the Blackout mode. 80 players will drop into the map and face off against each other. When a player dies, they will be placed on the zombies team and tasked with eliminating other players. Zombies have two axes, run at an accelerated speed, jump higher, are immune to fall damage, can track footsteps, and can see enemy locations on the map.

For those who prefer the Zombies, the Alpha Omega map has a Duck and Cover Zombies Gauntlet. Players can earn some new Nebulium Plasma rewards and Calling Cards to show off their zombie killing skills, which will be rewarded at rounds 10, 20, and 30.
