What is the Black Ops 4 Blackout Merits bug?
The Black Ops 4 Blackout Merits bug is a particularly galling one for you if you don’t like to waste any time in flying through the ranks to earn the most coveted Prestige level. Ordinarily, your progress is tracked and you rank up with the more wins you earn in Blackout.
However, players have noticed that their Merits report keeps glitching out whenever they log back into the game. Players have taken to the Black Ops 4 subreddit to show just what exactly is going on with this bug, and it isn’t great.
According to Reddit user CallMeBanjo, their Prestige level was reset to level 1 even though they had progressed up to level seven. Their Merits had bugged out too, and were now showing as having -12,000 merits in their report. As you might have guessed, other players are now worried about playing Blackout as the same thing could happen to them.
