Treyarch rolled out new December update for Call of Duty which brings a limited 2XP in Multiplayer and Zombies, 2X Merits in Blackout along with the Close Quarters Frenzy mode seeing some gameplay improvements and an expanded arsenal.

New additions to Blackout will be coming soon as Treyarch looks to allow the players to create their own Blackout matches which they can use to explore the map, practice or play with friends.

Blackout Custom Games will support up to twelve players at launch and the developer says that Custom Games will evolve like other Blackout features, so we can expect support for higher player numbers in the future updates.

The new feature will launch next week and it will support solo, duo and quads, full character customisation, weapon camos and it will be online-only to ensure each Custom Game is up to date. 

Another addition for Call of Duty Black Ops 4's battle royale mode is coming in the next update and it's a Blackout Weapon Camos feature. It will allow the players to use camos they earned in Zombies, Multiplayer and The Black Market on their guns in Blackout. Camos will be applied to weapons in the new Armory menu just before the match and players will see their camos once they picked those weapons in-game.

These two features will be coming soon but Treyarch also has one more Blackout addition that is live right now. It's a time-limited mode dubbed Close Quarters Frenzy which was available in Blackout beta. The new mode will run until 17 December 2018 and it features many gameplay improvements and new weapons. For those unfamiliar with Close Quarters Frenzy, it's a much faster run and gun experience with quicker circle collapse and a limited arsenal.

Apart from that, Treyarch also started double experience weekend in Multiplayer and Zombies mode and double Merits in Blackout on all platforms. Blackout players will now have an increased chance of finding Character Mission item in Zombies Stash and Treyarch even increased the number of Zombies Stash that can include the Character Mission item per match.
