Black Ops 4 Update December 11 Patch Notes

Treyarch has released a new update for Call of Duty Black Ops 4 on PS4. We’ve managed to compile the majority of the Call of Duty Black Ops 4 update patch notes (December 11th) from all of the information we’ve acquired so far.

Prior to the Black Ops 4 December 11 patch, it was confirmed that a large amount of additions would be added in-game for Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies.

A host of changes have been introduced across all modes. The vast majority of which have occurred in Blackout and Multiplayer. Prior to the game’s initial launch, Treyarch confirmed that all post-launch content would release seven days earlier on PS4. Therefore, Xbox One and PC players will have to wait until Monday, December 18th until they can get their hands on Hijacked, the first new Specialist: Zero, Blackout Zombies Character Missions, amongst other current PS4 only additions.

Black Ops 4 Update 1.09 - Operation Absolute Zero


In a recent tweet, David Vonderhaar gave fans a slight insight of what’s coming to Blackout. He claims, this update introduces by far the most content we’ve ever seen, including “systems, features, and tuning changes.”

The highly-awaited Hijacked destination has arrived on PS4. For those looking to break their record number of kills or plan on getting into some action, it may be worth making this location your main landing spot for the next few days. Whilst the dropping destinations of most users are very diverse, Hijacked will most likely shake things up a little. Most action will undoubtedly take place nearby or in the actual new area. Moreover, players could find themselves in a very vulnerable position if battling in Hijacked. You can bet your bottom dollar that those in Construction Site and Nuketown Island will be advancing into the point of interest.

In addition, as if the above wasn’t enough, the new ARAV armored vehicle has been added. Jump on the driver’s seat and let your teammate obliterate nearby enemies with the all-new turret-mounted machine gun. Alongside this, PS4 players can now find new weapons throughout the Blackout map. According to Treyarch, Firing Range also has a special surprise in store.

Lastly, the Black Ops 4 update for December 11th has allowed users to play as Zero after unlocking her. In addition to Zero, a brand-new set of Blackout Zombies Character Missions have also been added. Stick around, a guide will soon be compiled regarding how to unlock these.


The first ever post-launch Specialist, a versatile and deadly hacker named ‘Zero‘, has arrived in Multiplayer and Blackout with the addition of Operation Absolute Zero in this Black Ops 4 update.

Furthermore, the game’s newly revamped Black Market can be used to unlock a ton of new features. Firstly, Zero can be unlocked by completing Tier 1. Then, a host of other items can be obtained – the higher overall Tier completion, the more rewards on offer.

In addition, Blackjack’s Gun Game is now available on PS4. Players can now progress through 20 BO4 weapons, including the new Daemon 3XB submachine gun, SWAT RFT assault rifle and the Secret Santa melee weapon.


Black Ops 4 Update 1.09 - Zombies

Many new free features for Zombies players have been added to all platforms. The first of which is Daily Callings. These provide new gameplay challenges. Bonus XP and Nebulium Plasma can be unlocked upon completion.

Secondly, players can now discover the new Black Ops Authenticity Stamp system. This addition gives players the ability to verify and share the results of their game online. This feature is enabled due to a personalized code generated at the end of each match.

The December 11th Black Ops 4 update introduces numerous other additions to all three modes. Whilst it’s currently unknown what exactly these other changes are, Gaming INTEL are looking into it. Stay tuned, we will constantly update this post as we find out more.

Introducing the ARAV, Blackout’s first combat-centric vehicle. The ARAV is a three-player vehicle featuring three positions:

  • Driver
    • The ARAV is the second-fastest land vehicle behind the ATV in pure speed, and is the 2nd-toughest vehicle after the Cargo Truck. While it can shrug off a few bullets, ARAV drivers still need to be mindful of explosives and rockets headed their direction.
  • Passenger
    • As the passenger, players have the option of staying seated within the safety of the cabin, or leaning out the window to initiate combat with scavenged weapons and equipment. Players enter the Passenger Seat with weapons lowered and equipment unavailable.
    • To change from sitting in the seat to leaning out the window, press Aim Down Sights (ADS), Fire, or Use Equipment buttons.
    • To re-enter the vehicle when leaning out, press the Re-enter or Switch Seat button.
    • Players can heal from within the confines of the ARAV passenger seat without transitioning to leaning out. While leaning out, players still have full use of their weapons and equipment.
  • Turret Gunner
    • In the Turret position, players are placed on a mounted machine gun with 360-degree aim, perfect for providing suppressing fire or firing on enemy vehicles.
    • Turret firing is metered by two mechanics: Overheat and Durability.
      • Overheat: Extended firing will cause the turret to overheat and be temporarily disabled. The turret will be usable again after it has cooled down.
      • Durability: The turret will become permanently disabled over time. Keep an eye on the turret itself, as it will begin to pour smoke and ultimately catch fire when its durability is reduced to zero and can no longer be used.


  • Hijacked has been added to the map, docked just outside of the Construction Site.
  • This “well-known” luxury yacht has received some much-needed improvements, featuring a helipad as a possible helicopter spawn point, as well as a possible vehicle spawn.
  • Made improvements to mantling in Hijacked location [updated 4PM PT]
