Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Operation Grand Heist is coming to PS4 on 19 February 2019 and it brings new specialist named Outrider, new weapons, Black Market items along with new vehicles and destination Ghost Town for Blackout mode.

Treyarch have released full patch notes for the next major Call of Duty Black Ops 4 update dubbed Operation Grand Heist. The biggest Operation yet is kicking off tomorrow, 19 February 2019 on PlayStation 4, and it brings new content to Multiplayer, Blackout and Zombie modes. 

In the first day of Operation Grand Heist, Treyarch are adding a new specialist named Outrider and a new mode One in the Chamber to Multiplayer.

Outrider's new Special Issue Equipment is a pilotable drone called the Hawk and it can be parked at strategic overwatch positions. Enemies in its view will be tagged automatically to help you sneak up on your prey. Outrider's special weapon is a Sparrow bow with explosive-tipped arrows that detonate on impact.

Outrider will be unlocked in Multiplayer and Blackout once players complete Tier 1 of the new Operation in the Black Market.

In One in the Chamber mode players are given three lives and a pistol with one bullet. The goal is to perfect shot or melee the opponents to gain additional bullet and 100 points. This mode is first of the several Multiplayer modes that players will get to play during Operation Grand Heist. 

Treyarch are also adding alternate lighting and weather version of some maps to the rotation. These maps will be available later in the Operation to all players.

Blackout map is getting a new Western-themed destination called Ghost Town. The destination is inspired by Standoff and Buried maps from Black Ops 2 and it features underground, zombie-infested caverns with some of the best loot on the entire map.

In addition to this, Blackout will also get more updates during the Operation. These include Hardcore mode, a secret in-game event and additional weapons including Switchblade x9 SMG, Rampage shotgun and Outrider's Sparrow.
