We are getting ready for the holiday season and games are, too. The releases are adding winter-themed graphics and features to their games and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is no exception. Treyarch added some cool changes to their Battle Royale variant called Blackout. One of the most notable and funniest additions is that you can enjoy snowballs!
Who doesn’t like snowballing? Regardless of your age, you are surely among those who can’t resist the opportunity to make a snowball from the first snow that falls in your street. Blackout players are doing something different, but they are enjoying nonetheless. They are killing each other using snowballs!
It sounds weird and it takes a bit of creativity, but it is definitely possible. If you start a map in COD Black Ops 4’s BR mode, you will notice that there are snowball piles everywhere. They actually take the same amount of space like a grenade, but they are actually less powerful. It sounds logical – having a smoke grenade is better than having a snowball…but is it? After all, it is Christmas, so why not risk a little bit.
Some Effort is Required
If you engage into a snowball fight, each of the balls can deal about 20 damage points and it comes in handy when you need to break glass! That sounds good enough in our books. It may take some (or a lot) trial and error to actually perfect a snowball kill, but it is worth it!
Take a look at how the allegedly first kill of this type in Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout happened:
We would, however, advise you to be smart and inflict some damage the regular way first and then finish off the opponent with a snowball. It could be a more efficient way or, better put, a way that can actually work.
In other news related to the game, Treyarch explained why releasing a PC update takes more time than the one on the consoles. Their answer is that they want to ensure everything works smoothly and is tuned up to perfection. Although it may sound a bit weird, this should actually make us believe that PC is a priority. Either way, they promise that the updates should be available no later than 24 hours after being released on consoles.
