Black Ops 4 Adds a limited time Boss Enemy

Black Ops 4 Adds a limited time Boss Enemy

Black Ops 4 has a bit of everything at the moment, from its online multiplayer gaming to its popular zombie’s mode and now, of course, the famous Blackout – Battle Royale Mode. If that’s not enough to get you interested Treyarch have gone even further, but only for a limited time.

Drop into Blackout from now until November 13 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm UK and you may very well come across the fearsome Blightfather boss. A fan favourite from Zombies game mode. This boss level enemy had been seen previously during the games Beta stage, but it’s been brought back in all its undead glory – or should that be gory? Load in and head southward from the Asylum and you should find him lurking around the graveyard. If he’s there you should see a red pillar of light. Kinda like the mystery box’s golden beam from the zombie’s mode.

Get in there and give him a whooping, just come prepared as he won’t be as easy as you think.

Along with the added fun of the Blightfather, Treyarch have implemented a few tweaks and updates at the same time, they are:


-Playlist updates

  • Blightfather added to all playlists.
  • 100-Player Quads added to the Featured playlist.
  • Maximum players in Solo and Duos playlists changed to 88.

-Character missions

  • Zombies Chaos Storyline Character Missions now available (Bruno, Diego, Scarlett, and Shaw).
  • Increased drop rates of Character Mission items.

Blackout weapon balance


  • Reduced recoil.

-Rampart 17

  • Reduced ADS sway.
  • Reduced recoil.

-Auger DMR

  • Increased re-center speed. We slowed down the re-center due to high performance in our Blackout beta, but have seen the AUGER slightly underperform since release.
  • Slightly increased muzzle velocity. This should make for more predictable shots when firing at a moving target within the Auger’s intended ranges.


  • Tightened the spread pattern. This should allow more shots to land on target at range.


  • Increased re-center speed.
  • Reduced re-center pattern offsets for more predictable recoil.

-VKM 750

  • Increased re-center speed.
  • Reduced re-center pattern offsets.


  • Increased re-center speed.
  • Reduced re-center pattern offsets.


  • Removed the 9-Bang from Blackout while we evaluate its place in the gameplay loop.

-Concussion grenade

  • Increased throw distance.
  • Increased stack count to 2.

  • Added Team Tactical Moshpit to Featured Playlist (3v3 TDM, Kill Confirmed, and Search & Destroy).
  • Added Mercenary Chaos Moshpit to Featured category (6v6 TDM, Domination, Kill Confirmed, and Hardpoint, no parties allowed).

  • Gun Game and Control now in Featured category.


  • Resolved an exploit in Search & Destroy where players could change classes after the start of a round to regain Scorestreak progress from the previous round before death.
  • Resolved an issue in Heist where navigating the Buy Menu with the d-pad could display the description for the previously highlighted item.
  • Resolved an issue where meleeing friendly Razor Wire in Hardcore game modes would damage players, potentially causing the player who placed the Razor Wire to be kicked for friendly fire.


  • Corrected the description for “Fast Reflexes” Challenge to inform players of requirement to get 5 EKIA in a game shortly after switching weapons with Dexterity, Overkill, and Laser Sight.



  • Resolved 2 specific crashes in the IX Main Quest.
