Activision’s reveal event for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is due in a few weeks and to capitalize on the same, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has received the Operation Swarm update. This is a free update which adds a new map, Fringe Nightfall, and two new weapons along with Prop Hunt.
Fringe Nightfall is the nighttime version of Fringe and takes place back in the map’s “Heyday”. Players also get the RPK from the first Black Ops and the Sten (seen in many World War 2 Call of Duty titles). Both weapons are available in Supply Drops. There’s also a new camo and calling to earn.
As for Prop Hunt, it’s pretty much what you’d expect – one team consists of players disguising themselves as props in a level. The other team must hunt them down. Prop Hunt is available on 11 maps – Aquarium, Combine, Evac, Exodus, Fringe, Redwood, Hunted, Infection, Breach, and Nuk3town. Nuk3town is especially interesting because it features the robotic mannequins as props, leading to some rather hilarious scenarios given the abundance of the same.
The reveal event for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will take place on May 17th. The game itself releases for Xbox One, PS4 and PC on October 12th.
