Dropshotting has been a viable tactic in Call of Duty for years, but changes to the popular trick are coming in Black Ops 4.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 arrives on October 12 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. This time though, the sign is covered in snow with the text in the tweet indicating that Black Ops 4's version of Nuketown will be set in a frigid, Russian environment.
In light of the comments from Scronce, it seems as though this was an intended change to discourage players from using the move without worry of any drawbacks.
In a post to the Activision Support Page, Treyarch revealed that the patch is necessary to play Multiplayer, Zombies, and Specialist Headquarters on Xbox One and PS4. This isn't the size of the download but rather, the amount of space needed to complete the installation process.
On the PlayStation 4, Activision recommends having at least 112GB of free hard drive space available for an "optimized download experience". In order to play Blackout before the full installation is complete, select "Update to Latest Version" when the prompt appears.More news: South African finance minister Nene resigns over Gupta scandal
The day one update package is roughly 50 GB.
If you're buying the game digitally, then this news won't matter.
The final installation footprint on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be approximately 55GB, we're told. "Download speeds may vary based on region, platform, connection type, and the speed of your internet connection".
South African retailers will be dishing out copies early so players can get the patch downloaded.
And while Europe gets a 500GB PS4 Slim with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and a 1TB PS4 Pro with the game, India is limited to the aforementioned 1TB PS4 Slim with a Black Ops 4 copy.
