The latest update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has arrived. The patch notes, which were posted by developer Treyarch on Reddit, confirm a series of PC-specific changes and the introduction of a new Team Deathmatch playlist, as well as some bug fixes and updates for the Blackout battle royale mode.
One of the PC-specific changes is the ability to change the jump/mantle keybind to only mantle for second press; a small tweak, sure, but it's a welcome one if that's what you wanted. The update also fixes a graphical bug on PC could cause black or white squares to show up.
For all versions of Black Ops 4, the new update adds a new Team Deathmatch playlist where the final score is 85 instead of 75. You can find this playlist in the game's "featured" category. For the Blackout mode, the update fixes a bug that caused an error screen to display when pressing the Deploy button in the lobby, in some circumstances.
One problem that is not fixed with this new Black Ops 4 update is an issue related to Aim Assist and Deadshot Dealer not working properly in Zombies mode, while Treyarch is also working on a fix for players experiencing issues with Death Stashes in Blackout. "We will release a fix for both issues once we've tested them thoroughly--thanks for your patience," Treyarch said.
