Besides from nerfs to Armor and Concussions in Blackout, Treyarch has introduced a host of new changes to other aspects of the game with Black Ops 4 update 1.12. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the expected BO4 update patch notes, alongside the file size on PS4 and Xbox One.
If following the same pattern of other BO4 updates, the latest patch will go live on PC later. Users can download today’s update at 6.94GB on PS4, and 7GB on Xbox One.
Black Ops 4 Update 1.12 Patch Notes (CoD BO4)
Tuning in Blackout
A host of changes have primarily occurred in Blackout, the majority of which are nerfs. Armor, in particular, has been a highly discussed topic throughout the past few weeks. Prior to the release of BO4 update 1.12, Treyarch confirmed that the following improvements would be made:
- Armor is no longer as effective for damage protection. The same change has applied to all levels.
- Damage protection against explosions and melee attacks is no longer granted to those with Level 3 Armor.
- Level 3 Armor now requires players to use more Armor Plates to repair.
- Reduced area of effect radius and throw distance for Concussion grenades.
- Increased time to detonate for Cluster Grenades.
- Damage reduction for mini-Cluster Grenade explosions.
Loot Weapons in Zombies
The following weapons have been added into Mystery Boxes across every Zombies map for all players:
- MP 40
- Daemon 3XB
- SWAT RFT
- KAP 45
“Ambush” LTM in Blackout (PS4)
Down But Not Out has now been removed from the Featured Playlist slot. As a result, Ambush has taken its place and is now the current LTM on PS4. Xbox One and PC players, however, will have to wait a little longer until they can get their hands on the new Ambush LTM.
Get the drop on your enemies using only sniper rifles, melee attacks, and launchers while surviving a circle that never stops collapsing once it starts.
In addition to the Black Ops 4 patch notes mentioned above, a host of other improvements have also been introduced. Gaming INTEL is attempting to find out what these are prior to when the official notes are released.
