Summertime is here, and for many games that means Summer events and more. For Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, that means a summer update. To celebrate the Summer, the Days of Summer update has been announced. Featuring new content, it is the second part of Operation Spectre Rising.
For those looking for more Blackout content, there will be environmental changes. This includes summer decorations and parties to celebrate the season. There is also a new camera feature called the “Perks Killcam”. In other words, rival perks can now be viewed by a player’s killcams.
Included in the Ground War game mode is a new vehicle known as the attack helicopter. Speaking of game modes, a classic game mode has been added. In this mode, two large teams will battle on a smaller-scale version of the main Blackout map.
In addition to the new Blackout content are summer activities such as Zombies wearing duck floaties and new gameplay elements. This includes a new way to reduce the time spent downed by pressing USE. With the summer activities, some are as follows:
- Coolers: Check the party areas for coolers; they might contain paint cans and character-unlock items!
- Water Balloons: Grab a 20-balloon stack as equipment and use it to deal some light damage.
An additional notable update for the Summer is the return of the map Grind. Set in a Venice Beach skate park, players can do multiplayer battle through the pro shop and around the half-pipe. In addition to multiplayer mode, “Capture the Flag” has returned for the update. Other new content includes new Zombies, Tiers, and Black Market Gear. Additionally, the Alcatraz map returns with two new destinations called Submarine and Shipwrecked.
For Zombie fans, there will be a new 30-round gauntlet with a Friends Leaderboard to view. Then there are new perks such as Shopping Free. Zombie Mystery boxes will now have new weapons too. With the Tiers, there are 50 new ones and as players progress through them, there are additional themed outfits. Keeping on gear, there is a ‘Summer Break’ Bundle featuring Blackout Character the Ladies’ Man and other items.
Speaking of characters, the Sergei Blackout Character, the Ahab’s Revenge Mastercraft, can be unlocked. Mainly for the Swordfish, and conversely Deep Voyage Mastercraft for the Spitfire.
As for Black Market items, Blackjack has new weapons and summer threads including the Peacekeeper assault rifle and ‘Privateer’ Nomad outfit. To conclude the update’s new contents, there is a Grav community challenge with a chance to earn the Grav assault rifle.
