Black Ops 4 Update Adds New Event, Zombies Gauntlets On Xbox One And PC

Treyarch has rolled out another update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. This week, the developer brings Gauntlets and new Elixirs for Zombies mode to Xbox One and PC following their release on PS4 last week, while Sony’s console receives a new event and Black Market loot.

On PS4, Treyarch has kicked off a special four-week event stream in the Black Market dubbed Barbarians. As part of this event, the developer has added 25 new tiers of loot below the Operation Absolute Zero stream, meaning players can unlock more loot than usual per tier. Among the new rewards are outfits, gestures, Reactive Camo, and the KAP 45 pistol.

The developer has also introduced a new Featured playlist on all platforms: Chaos Domination. This mode features two teams of six players and three-second zone capture time. Team Tactical Moshpit, Mercenary Deathmatch Moshpit, Mercenary Hardcore Moshpit, and Mercenary Capture Moshpit have also been added to the Featured category.

On Xbox One and PC, Gauntlets are now available for Zombies mode. These are 30-round challenges that have unique rules for each round, and players can earn medals and rewards depending on how many rounds they’re able to complete. There are also three new Elixirs, with even more set to arrive in the coming weeks.

Finally, rounding out the update are a handful of improvements and bug fixes across platforms. Among other things, Treyarch has fixed an exploit that allowed players to get a full equipment charge when they switched classes. You can find the full patch notes on Reddit.

Beginning January 23, the Down But Not Out limited-time mode in Blackout will expand to Xbox One and PC, following its debut on PS4 last week. Meanwhile, Black Ops 4’s ongoing free Blackout trial is scheduled to end on January 24.
