Blackjacks Stashes Good or Bad ?
Activision explained in a recent blog post that every single player in Black Ops 4 Blackout will get the opportunity to unlock one of Blackjack’s Stashes per match. these stashes will reward players with a random exclusive weapon in Blackout mode but only if you have already unlocked them. If you don’t have anything unlocked in-game via the Reserves then these stashes will be of no use to you.
Modern Warfare - more realistic weapons and characters than ever!
Infinity Ward shared with us some exciting information about the next installment of the Call of Duty franchise, Modern Warfare. It was exciting to hear about the future of Call of Duty and then to top it all, we learned that the new engine will help push the series forward performance wise as well as graphically.
Infinity Ward wanted the game to feel as realistic as possible and this new engine will certainly help out in that regard.
“We had to simulate a rainbow-like effect on the oil of the gun after you’ve cleaned it up," Infinity Ward said. "Translucent effects on the gun, ceramic effects, powder coating effects, elements of the magazines. We researched all of that. We made everything in the game look as good as they possibly can. The reflections, shadows, the ambient occlusion; all the bells and whistles.”
Infinity ward shared "We performance capture tons of data, including detail like the wrinkles, the changes in tautness of the skin around the mouth when characters are talking or are excited. This is performance capture 2.0, where you’re getting this additional level of detail.”
With all these awesome effects to make the game look better than ever, the game will still run at 60 FPS. I can hardly wait for an official gameplay reveal!

Black Ops 4 V1.19 weapon buffs & nerfs
Number of balancing adjustments have been introduced to weapons in Call of Duty Black Ops 4. Let's go through some of these recent changes.
V1.19 went live on June 25 and as a result, we've seen some changes to Multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout battle royale.
1> Ballistic Profiles
One major aspect of this update was the changes to the ballistic profiles on SMGs and pistols to hitscan to "create consistency with other weapon classes in Multiplayer."
So what does this mean? The bullets fired from SMGs and pistols won't take any time before making an impact. It'll be an instant, immediate impact right after being shot.
2> SMG nerfs
The Daemon 3XB & Switchblade X9 have been nerfed with this update. Both of these weapons were added after the game was released and they had to be unlocked via the Contraband stream.
With the Daemon, instead of previous 5 bullets, you now need at least 6 bullets to finish off a target at full health. A 3rd extra magazine was added to balance this nerf.
The kill range of Switchblade for 6, 7 and 8 shots have been reduced by 6 meters each.
-Ballistic profiles on SMGs and pistols changed to hitscan to create consistency with other weapon classes in Multiplayer.
-Dragon Breath Operator Mod damage reduced to increase pellets required for a one-shot kill at long range.
-Now requires at least six bullets to finish off a target with full health (up from five).
-Added a third extra magazine.
-Reduced 6-shot kill range from 19 meters to 13 meters.
-Reduced 7-shot kill range from 25 meters to 19 meters.
-Reduced 8-shot kill range from 31 meters to 25 meters.
