Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – COD Points go live on PS4 a week early alongside the new Special Orders

Following the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s massive patch earlier this week, Treyarch has updated the Black Market with new content.

The launch of COD Points, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s paid-for currency, is also part of this. Available only on PS4 for a week, COD Points allow players to advance through the Black Market tiers, or buy Nebulium Plasma for use in Zombies.

COD Points can also be used to access Special Orders, which are challenges that come with their set of cosmetic content. These will rotate weekly, but you won’t lose any of the orders you claimed until you fulfil their requirements. Like COD Points, Special Orders are only available on PS4 at this time, and they’re expected to hit PC, and Xbox One next week.

As promised, yesterday’s big patch has now hit PC. All changes outlined in the patch notes have been reflected on PC, alongside a bunch of other PC-specific fixes, which we’ll detail below.

See a round-up of all the changes below.
