Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 scream

Details of upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout beta were recently revealed before its launch date. Game developer Treyarch gave these details ahead of the test for the testers.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout beta three modes

The beta will include three game modes. These modes are the Solos, Duos, and Quads. These will host up to 80 players as of the moment, but change later on, depending on the results of the test.


There are different vehicles included in this test. These are:

  • ATV – Holds a max of two people and has off-roading capability with medium speed.
  • Cargo Truck – One driver with room for others in the truck bed. It has limited off-roading capability and limited speed. Use the Cargo Truck to store weapons and other Items for your late game push to victory.
  • Tactical Raft – This boat fits two comfortably but can pack in quite a few if you don’t mind getting cozy. The raft is a great way to navigate the abundant water in Blackout.
  • Light Helicopter – a Helicopter that holds a max of four passengers and the pilot. This aircraft will start to malfunction in the late states of the game and is very susceptible to lock-on Missile Launchers, but is by far the fastest way to get from point A to point B.

Items that can be equipped

There are several items that players can equip in this test. These are:

  • Two weapons
  • One health item (First Aid, Med Kit, Trauma Kit)
  • One armor item
  • One backpack (expands carry capacity)
  • Equipment item (including razor wires, mesh mines, and sensor darts)
  • About 200 of each Ammo type

Blackout map

Treyarch revealed that the Blackout mode will have the largest map that they have created. This will be available in the test too. Here are the areas that players can visit:

  • Estates
  • Firing Range
  • Lighthouse
  • Rivertown
  • Asylum
  • Nuketown Island
  • Construction Site

The Blackout beta is starting today, Sept. 10 at 10 A.M. PST and will end on Sept. 17 at 10 A.M. PST. The game will launch on PlayStation 4.
