Halloween Black Ops 4 update: Game settings, PC bug fixes, and CoD Points

Treyarch has released a new game settings update for Black Ops 4 that includes some major changes to the Black Market and PC bug fixes. The V1.04 October 30th update that was released yesterday has a follow-up patch today. Treyarch released another round of updates to BO4 with this October 31 game settings update.

PlayStation 4 and PC players were targeted for this update with plenty of changes for players to get accustomed to. This update follows the big update that was received earlier for PS4 players that added CoD Points to the Black Market as redeemable currency.

Treyarch added Special Orders that brings even more cosmetic items to BO4. These orders can only be bought with CoD Points which allows players to stack each Black Market tier with rewards that can be unlocked at once.

The features are only available on PS4 as of now until a week later when they’ll debut for PC and Xbox One. The V1.04 patch was the biggest Black Ops 4 update so far in its short history, and this update is no competitor. It simply adds some game settings and additional bug fixes following the previous, major update.

Special Orders can be described as a rotating library of skins based on tiers. As Treyarch states:

Special Orders provide a new content stream to unlock in the Black Market with their own set of cosmetic items. With Special Orders, players can stack each tier with multiple items to unlock at once, allowing everyone to maximize item unlocks with two items per Tier at all times and up to three items per Tier when Special Events are live (like the Halloween event live right now!). Players can choose when to acquire and start progressing through Special Orders, and only one can be active at a time. Though Special Orders will rotate on a regular basis, they will stay in your inventory once acquired until they’re completed, and you can switch between active Special Orders at any time. Once a Special Order is activated, you’ll see the new content drop in starting on the Black Market Tier you’re currently on.

PC players will get a separate balancing patch as specific weapons perform differently on PC than consoles. This is still in the works and Treyarch hasn’t confirmed when this will drop.

Here are full patch notes for the October 31 (Halloween) update for Black Ops 4:

Special Orders provide a new content stream to unlock in the Black Market with their own set of cosmetic items. With Special Orders, players can stack each tier with multiple items to unlock at once, allowing everyone to maximize item unlocks with two items per Tier at all times and up to three items per Tier when Special Events are live (like the Halloween event live right now!). Players can choose when to acquire and start progressing through Special Orders, and only one can be active at a time. Though Special Orders will rotate on a regular basis, they will stay in your inventory once acquired until they’re completed, and you can switch between active Special Orders at any time.
