A new update is live for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and since it offers some new content, PS4 players get the first stab at it. If you’re on Xbox One or PC, don’t worry – new Epic Elixirs and Zombies Gauntlets are now live for those platforms. Chaos Domination is also the featured multiplayer playlist for those interested.

What do PS4 players get? The new Barbarians Special Event stream, which adds 25 new loot tiers. It runs concurrently with the Operation Absolute Zero stream, so you’ll be able to earn twice as many drops as normal. Some of the rewards include new outfits, calling cards, a new Hades LMG reactive camo, and the KAP 45 full-auto pistol from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

The new Blackout console looting interface has also seen some improvements. Treyarch has addressed issues where players couldn’t scroll through items with the directional pad until a Stash was closed and re-opened. Other issues, like not being able to switch tabs when taking items from a Stash, have also been resolved. Check out the full patch notes below, or here.
