Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 only recently released and is already getting its next DLC with a new specialist. Named Zero, the new hacker specialist uses her abilities to distract players during multiplayer matches. Along with that, new weapons will be added including the Daemon 3XB SMG, SWAT RFT assault rifle, and the Secret Santa melee weapon.

That’s not it for the update however as Blackout is getting a few changes of its own. First up, the map will have visual changes to match a more winter climate. On top of that, there will be a new location on the map called Hijack. Also included is a new vehicle being included, the ARAV armored vehicle. Players can also unlock Zero and the Gladiators from Zombies as specialists for use in Blackout.

Blackout is also getting some balance changes, primarily with the SDM and Spitfire. No word on how they are being adjusted but I could assume they are getting some damage nerfs. Also being adjusted is the audio for the battle royale mode.

Zombies is adding a tier-leveling system with their new Black Ops Authenticity Stamp system. The system keeps tracks of players achievements in the game such as kills and elixirs made. In return, players receive stamps to show off. People will also get a chance at earning Black Market tiers through Zombies as well.

Speaking of Black Market, Black Ops has reduced the Tier showcase from 200 to 100. Players can earn weapons, warpaint, specialists, and all sorts of gear through the revamped system.

This is all great news for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 fans to get an update early into its launch. It will be interesting to see if Black Ops will keep the momentum up similar to how Fortnite keeps pushing out new seasons. The update is set for release this coming Tuesday, December 11. If you haven’t already you can pick Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 for PS4, PC, and Xbox One now on Amazon.
