Black Ops 4 1.22 update patch notes

As stated above, plenty of new features and a couple of new modes have been added to Black Ops 4 thanks to the 1.22 update. The major new features from the update, however, are definitely the new modes. Both Blackout and Multiplayer have been given a brand-new mode to play. Find out more about both below:

New Pandemic Blackout Mode

The best way to think of Pandemic in Blackout is an 80-player version of classic Multiplayer mode Infected. In Pandemic, you’ll be right up against the odds. According to Treyarch, the “last survivors on Earth against an endless swarm of undead at the end of the world” will be the winners in this new intense mode.

New Infected: Final Stand Multiplayer Mode

Infected is on its way to Multiplayer, too. The classic Multiplayer mode has finally returned, albeit with supposed “game-changing twists.” Expect the Black Ops 4 version of Infected to last perhaps a little longer than previous iterations, with everyone fighting to survive right up until the very end of each match.

Other New and Returning Features

Alongside the new Pandemic and Infected: Final Stand modes, Prop Hunt and Ground War have returned, as well as Barebones Moshpit on PS4 and Xbox One. You’ll also find new Blackout features such as the sidecar motorcycle, Wonder Weapons, and wall buys. The “Alpha Omega” Zombies Gauntlet has been added, too. You’ll also find a whole host of other new additions, bug fixes, and adjustments in the list of full patch notes below.
