Black Ops 4 Update 1.18 Patch Notes: Call of Duty Zombies, Blackout, Multiplayer Changes (Pic: ACTIVISION)

Call of Duty's new update for Black Ops 4 is rolling out to PS4, Xbox One consoles. PC users should get the update shortly, but it's not rolling out just yet.

This is update 1.18 and is 11.8GB on PS4 and 12GB on Xbox One.

So clear some space on the hard drive if you're lacking space.

Today's new update introduces plenty of new content, mainly focussed on the Days of Summer seasonal event, part of Operation Spectre Rising.

The official patch notes can be found below, but first, here's a message direct from the developers at Treyarch.


Summer is Here! Our Days of Summer seasonal game update is live today on PS4, delivering new content across Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies in the second half of Operation Spectre Rising!


Free Grind Map, Capture the Flag, New Weapons, Gameplay Tuning, League Play Update + More

Everyones favorite Black Ops 2 skatepark is back, and its free for all players! Were excited to announce Grind is now available in rotation today in Multiplayer on PS4, and its just like you remember.

Capture the Flag launches today as our newest Featured Playlist on PS4! Its classic CTF gameplay: grab your opponents flag, run it back to your base, protect your own flag at the spawn and get the capture. First team to capture three times or get the most captures wins the round, and the first team to win two rounds takes the match. Time to set up your best Lightweight loadout and hit the ground running.

Todays update also brings a treasure trove of new and classic weapons for MP, with a Weapon Bribe at Tier 25 in the Contraband stream, the new Vendetta sniper rifle at Tier 50, and the S6 Stingray tactical rifle, Peacekeeper assault rifle, Locus bolt-action sniper rifle, and Ballistic Knife now available in the Black Market and unlockable through the Weapon Bribe.

Weve also made some gameplay tuning changes to Spectre, Nomad, and Ajax in todays update, as well as additional weapon tuning, an update to the SG-12 Strobe Light, and new restrictions in Bolt-Action Barebones. And in League Play, weve reinstated escalating temporary bans for players who leave mid-match to ensure fuller matches long-term, and made additional visual improvements to the overall World League Hub interface. Get all the specifics in the patch notes below.


• Summer Map Updates, Post-Flood Map, Ground War, Attack Helicopter, Hawk + More

Summer has arrived in Blackout! Days of Summer brings new summer lighting and foliage to the main map, along with new hidden Coolers containing Paint Can rewards, throwable Water Balloons, and seasonal decorations throughout the map including BBQ-themed parties, balloons, yard flamingos, flags, and pool floats.

Now that the flood is over, players will see changes all across the map: the floodwater has receded, Hydro Dam is under reconstruction, Factory is being repaired, Cargo Docks has been restored with new layout changes, and Hijacked has set sail for the cove at Nuketown Island.

Ground War makes its debut today with large-scale 50 vs. 50 warfare in Blackout! Drop in along your teams flightpath or get behind enemy lines early on, and eliminate the opposing team to secure the win. More loot than usual will spawn throughout the map, ammo drops are doubled, and “Down But Not Out”-style redeploys are enabled to help keep the action going until the final circle. Weve also disabled friendly fire in Ground War, and players can revive any downed players in their team, not just those in their immediate squad. Get out there and let us know what you think of the biggest battle ever in Call of Duty history.

Also live today in Blackout on PS4: take a ride in the new Attack Helicopter with two mounted heavy turrets, and deploy the Hawk to scout for enemies throughout the map. Weve also added the new Cowards Way Out feature in redeploy modes, allowing players to hold the USE button to reduce the time spent in the downed state. This can be used tactically to queue up in time for the next redeploy, or to simply get on with it if your friends cant revive you in time.Finally, while Ground War kicks off today on PS4, were bringing Ambush Solo to Xbox One and PC this week featuring solo play with snipers, knives, and launchers only – just like old-school Ambush. Enjoy!

Zombies fans get plenty to sink their teeth into this week with a brand new Gauntlet, four new Epic Elixirs, new weapons, Gauntlet Leaderboards, new Mastercraft and MKII Weapon support, gameplay improvements, and more!

First up, the new Labours of Hercules Gauntlet is now live in “Ancient Evil” on PS4, featuring 30 new challenges to take on with your squad. Players on all platforms can also now track their standings against their friends and others in our new Gauntlet Leaderboards, tracking your Highest Round, Best Gold, Best Silver, Best Bronze, and Kills across all Gauntlets.

Next up, four fan-favorites arrive as Epic Elixirs in the Laboratory on PS4: Perkaholic, Near Death Experience, Reign Drops, and Shopping Free. In Black Ops 4 Zombies, Perkaholic gives the player all Loadout Perks plus six random extra Perks upon activation for a hell of an edge against the undead. With Perkaholic now in the mix, weve reduced the rarity of Perk Up from Epic to Legendary. Check the patch notes below for the specifics on each of the new Elixirs.

Weve also made gameplay improvements and implemented new bug fixes in “Ancient Evil” and “Dead of the Night” for a smoother zombie-slaying experience.

The team is currently hard at work on even more content for the remainder of Operation Spectre Rising – including the launch of Hard Mode Gauntlets and increased in-game rewards for Zombies players – as we prepare for our return to the Aether story in our next Operation in July.
