Spectre, the much-requested specialist from Black Ops 3 could finally arrive to Call of Duty Black Ops 4 on Tuesday - 30 April 2019. Treyarch teased the new specialist in a short video which shows a character blowing up the Hydro Dam.

In the patch notes for one of the earlier updates, Treyarch teased some of the upcoming Black Ops 4's next season content that is apparently dropping very soon. Treyarch are yet to officially reveal what exactly will be included in the next major update though, but rumours suggest that one new specialist, new operation and more will get introduced once the update arrives on Tuesday - 30 April 2019.

Judging by the clues from Treyarch latest video, the season four Specialist will be fan-favourite and much-requested Black Ops 3 character Spectre. In a short teaser, we can see a character wearing a helmet that looks similar to the one used by Spectre, planting C4 bombs on what appears to be the Hydro Dam section of the Blackout map.

The character appears through smoke, which is another hint that Spectre is indeed coming in the next update. We know from earlier leaks that Treyarch plan to introduce a form of a large-radius smoke grenade to Black Ops 4, which description states "Enemies inside the radius are visible to Spectre." This could mean that smoke grenade is one of the Spectre's abilities, probably a tactical one.

Another hint is the sword strike animation that can be seen in the video. In Call of Duty Black Ops 3, Spectre's abilities were Active Camouflage and Ripper. Judging by the teaser, Treyarch opted for the sword that chains one-hit melee kills as Spectre's lethal ability.

Another interesting thing is that Spectre is planting C4 on Hydro Dam which could suggest a massive seasonal change to Blackout map. Of course, none of this is confirmed and at the moment it's just a speculation, but each season brings major changes to the map, and the upcoming one shouldn't be any different. 

And last but not least, the C4 bombs are also coming judging by the trailer, which is certainly another addition that will add more depth to strategic play in Black Ops 4's battle royale mode.
