New Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Update Changes Arsenal Sandstorm Frequency in Rotation

Treyarch has released a brand new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which reduces the number of times Arsenal Sandstorm shows up in the rotation.

If you’re not a fan of Arsenal Sandstorm in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 like I am (seriously, it’s one of the most unfun maps in the game, in my opinion), then get ready to celebrate. Treyarch has released a brand new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and while it adds a few new features to the game, one major thing it does it reduce how much the aforementioned map will show up in the map rotation.

According to Treyarch, the decision to reduce its frequency in the map rotation comes from voting data and player feedback. While I’m sure there are some fans of the map, a ton of Black Ops 4 players have complained about how the map flows and runs, with the visibility being the prime complaint. Given the limited visibility, it almost requires the use of a thermal scope, which can be extremely annoying.

In addition to the map rotation changes, a Nuketown only playlist (previously called Nuketown 24/7 in other games) was also added to the game, meaning if you’ve been wanting to play more of Nuketown, you’ll finally get your wish.

Finally, Treyarch also began teasing some new modes that’ll be added to the game in the next week or so. One of these additions is Bolt Action Barebones, a multiplayer mode featuring traditional barebones gameplay and only bolt-action snipers.
