They finally posted about the update

https://www.reddit.com/r/Blackops4/comments/a0z88e/nov_27_update_safeguard_seaside_sunset_firing/

In today’s Black Ops 4 update: the Safeguard playlist makes its Black Ops 4 debut on PS4 in Multiplayer! Escort the robot into enemy territory and keep the opposing team from doing the same to secure the win. We’ve also added three new playlists to the Featured category on all platforms: Hardcore Nuketown, Mercenary Objective Moshpit, and Chaos Hardpoint. See below for details and let us know what you think.

Seaside Sunset and Firing Range Night join the MP map rotation starting today as well, bringing a new nighttime flair to two of our most frenetic maps. These map variants are free for all players and join the map rotation indefinitely – let us know which version you prefer in the comments.

For our Blackout players, the Bowie Knife is now available in Equipment Stashes and as Zombies-related drops on all platforms! Get your hands on one for some stealthy 1-hit kills. We’ve also added Character Missions to unlock Dempsey, Nikolai, Takeo, and Richtofen, and the Blightfather event has returned on PS4, now with reduced Blightfather health in Solos and Duos for faster takedowns.

Zombies gets a new round of stability updates today, including fixes for crashes in all maps and specific fixes for IX. Stay tuned for additional improvements in a future update, and some exciting additions to Zombies in the coming weeks.

Also, a note to our South American Blackout players: We’re currently testing a Featured Playlist-only setup on consoles to ensure more players in the region are able to join fuller matches with solid pings. Thanks for your patience as we continue to evaluate various solutions to deliver the best experience possible for Blackout players in this region, and please continue to give us your feedback here and on Twitter (@Treyarch and @TreyarchPC).

Finally, we’ve added a new Summary section below to provide a quick glimpse at what’s new in each update. Check it out:
Edit: I'll be in here, gonna keep farming these camos
Chaos Hardpoint added to Featured category.

  • Hardpoints spawn in a random order

  • Score increases with each teammate on the Hardpoint

  • Score limit increased to 1000

  • 6v6

For the next-gen (PS5 and Scarlett) they should just develop a system which chooses the time of day and weather type of each map before the match starts, that way you have different types of day for every map and different weather settings without the need to add them as a separate map. Would be pretty cool imo if you load into a map not knowing if it's gonna be day or night, or sunny or in the middle of the winter with snow.

Eh, I mostly agree except I think you should be able to see the time of day immediately so you could tweak your loadout.

Finished the RK7 headshots + bloodthirsties, that was rough. Wasn't too bad in the core nuketown if you got hardpoint or even dom, but I had to finish them off in HC nuketown... not fun, especially the bloodthirsties. You litterally get hitmarkers with the gun in hardcore, even at close range if you don't hit all 3 shots in the burst.

Haven't tried to do the camos yet, just leveled it up, but it was by far the worst gun in the game in my opinion. Thing just fucking sucks at killing people.

Anyone else getting really frequent audio clipping in Blackout? Just working out if it's my headphones, or internet or something.

I normally enjoy high rate of fire SMGs - but god I hate the spitfire

It just feels like a mess of a gun - and it also feels like it has no range whatsoever

Yup, agreed. The 24/7 nuketown playlist was good for headshots though. I would just spam flash bangs, and get 1/2 headshots usually per flash.

Agreed. Some people on PC melt with it, and I have no idea how. Everytime I use it, it's a hitmarker machine. Maybe the OP mod helps?

I like it. Dominant weapon in close ranges for minimum points as all it really needs is extended mags. Hopefully they fix Gung-Ho and the Spitfire will get even better.

I am enjoying the Hardcore Nuketown playlist and Hardcore in general a lot more with the Team Link perk. You see teammates through walls so if there's no blue in front of you, it's safe to fire! I wish I realized this earlier.

I placed #2 at least 10 times in Blackout (usually with 4/5 kills), but I can't win the final duel! I panick every time!

Blackout is so fucking great and I love it more now than I did a month ago. Honestly, if anyone here doesn't get the hype for this mode then watch Teeps here go 15 kills / 2600 damage with nothing but a Hades for the solo victory. I used to think this gun sucked balls but he makes it look so fucking easy. He's my favorite streamer in Blackout by far. And to really put his skill in perspective - he's playing on a fucking PS4 not on a PC. His aim is impeccable.

Match starts around 20 minutes in I think....

Have they mentioned anything about adding a way to instantly start matchmaking a new blackout match after dying? Its such a slog waiting for the game to reload to the menu and then rejoining every single time.

Is there a way to not having to press space bar twice, once to skip the kill cam and a second time to respawn, after you died?

Going for the dark matter camo and I have the AR and SMGs done. Currently working on the LMGs. I don't use snipers very often (although I was decent at them in WW2) but the few times I used them I was beyond awful. I am talking like 4-20 using the paladin. I don't think I will be able to get gold on the sniper rifles.

Love it when you get a random character item in an air drop instead of any armor. At least a lvl 1 refresh should be a must.

Won Blackout with a perfectly executed Bowie Knife stealth kill.

LOL, nice!

Haven't had the chance to mess with it yet.

There are 3 guns I think I will mess around more with in Blackout:

Spitfire
Auger
Hades

Spitfire is nasty up close.

Auger seems to hit hard but the kick on that can make it frustrating.

Hades just feels like a fun weapon to use.

I would still rank the ABR as the best weapon for Blackout. Fully equipped with a 4x scope is perfect. Might even carry around a 2x just in case for any up close fights.

Looking forward to those updated that were posted up. Hoping they are testing out a night version of Blackout. Or maybe even a winter theme with everything covered in snow. Ugh, the possibilities get me very excited.

Man I am doing great on TDM and Kill Confirmed (1.5 - 2 KD most of the time) but when it comes to objective based modes like Domination and Hardpoint which are my favorite I am more like 0.5 KD most matches. And I don't even like TDM... Gung-Ho was definitely are game changer for me though. I feel that I win most of the 1v1 fights now, probably helped even more because I have the habit of sprinting way too much.

What's weird though is that I have games where it feels like everyone is wearing body armor but they don't, where your bullet don't seem to register for whatever reason. It feels off.

God I want this, the menu loading takes so long.

This all sounds pretty good.

So I hit level 50 on the battle pass (or whatever they call it) and unlocked the 2 Titan skins. Now I can't find them anywhere when putting skins on my gun. How do I access these? They don't really explain it anywhere.

Get 100 headshots with the titan to finish up the headshot challenges. It will then open up the skins you unlocked. Good luck grinding for those 100 headshots lol.

Ah! I think I'm only like 3 headshots away (if it counts past headshots). I've just been using the Support default class and playing Hardcore, makes headshots feel cheaply easy.

Got my second Duos win last night with a friend I had made about an hour earlier. That was a blast!

It's amazing what good comms can do. He likes to take the overwatch role with a sniper / semi-auto rifle, and I go direct with a silenced AR/SMG. It's a fun combo!
