Call of Duty’s most recent seasonal event, “Days of Summer,” hit Black Ops 4 on June 4 for PlayStation 4, but what was supposed to be fun in the sun turned out to be more like the Days Of Bummer.

In Ditching Paid Maps, Call Of Duty Finally Gets With The Program In Ditching Paid Maps, Call Of Duty Finally Gets With The Program

Over a decade after the original era-defining Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Activision said last week that 2019’s Duty will be a re-imagining of Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare series. Along with the campaign trailer that dropped on May 30, the community also received a dash of hope that Activision might finally be…

Black Ops 4's Long-Promised Zombies 'Factions' Feature Is Still Missing Black Ops 4's Long-Promised Zombies 'Factions' Feature Is Still Missing

Black Ops 4’s Zombies still doesn’t have all the content that Activision promised prior to its launch last year. In fact, the undead survival mode hasn’t really seen a proper content flow or substantial rewards. Seven months since Black Ops 4’s launch, and the Zombies community is still left speculating about the…

Treyarch has been adding lots of map variants to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, changing the time of day and weather patterns in some of the previously existing maps. They can be a nice change of pace, but they don’t change the gameplay, and are clogging up the map rotation, too.

Rainbow Six Siege’s 'Rainbow Is Magic' Is More Than A Throwaway Joke Rainbow Six Siege’s 'Rainbow Is Magic' Is More Than A Throwaway Joke

“Rainbow Is Magic,” a special event added to Rainbow Six Siege for April Fools’ Day and running until April 8, brings over-the-top silliness, teddy bears, and lots and lots of pink to the tactical shooter. The whimsical vibe of a children’s animated show is not something you’d expect to see in a Rainbow Six game, but…

Alcatraz Island has arrived in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. It’s based on a Zombies map, but this version is for the Blackout battle royale mode. You wouldn’t think it, but the smaller map makes for an intense, close-quarters battle royale experience.

Subtle story clues can be found within Black Ops 4’s multiplayer maps that you might’ve missed. I love Treyarch’s Easter eggs and attention to map detail, and the recent additions of multiplayer maps Casino and Lockup made available with the Black Ops DLC Pass leave behind even more to explore.

Modern Warfare Remastered Did Call of Duty Loot Boxes The Right Way Modern Warfare Remastered Did Call of Duty Loot Boxes The Right Way

Since Modern Warfare Remastered is free this month on PlayStation Plus, I decided to revisit some classic Call of Duty. This remake of 2007's groundbreaking shooter is reminding me how a Call of Duty game can make a loot box system feel more rewarding and less like a money grab.

Black Ops 4's 'Grand Heist' Update Is Excellent Except For The Loot Boxes Black Ops 4's 'Grand Heist' Update Is Excellent Except For The Loot Boxes

The latest update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is a double-edged sword. It brings great new content to the game that I’m having a blast with, but also loot boxes. Ironic, considering that the update is titled “Grand Heist.”

Call Of Duty Blackout’s 'Ambush' Mode Forces You To Play Smarter Call Of Duty Blackout’s 'Ambush' Mode Forces You To Play Smarter

At first mention of Ambush, Black Ops 4’s most recent Blackout limited-time mode, I initially gave a dramatic groan and cringed. I love playing Blackout, but I loathed the idea of being limited to snipers, melee, and rockets only. I’ll try every mode at least once, but it was sheer stubbornness that kept me playing…

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode is an excellent battle royale experience, but since it launched, one annoying thing has become clear: Equipment is OP. Find the best equipment scattered around the map and you’ll be at a serious advantage even against players who can outshoot you. Matches are often won based…

Black Ops 4’s Zombies mode wasn’t a big hit with the community when it arrived last fall, and what’s happened in the months since then hasn’t helped its reputation. But this week’s update is a step in the right direction.

Call Of Duty's Latest Microtransaction Is A Tiny Red Dot Call Of Duty's Latest Microtransaction Is A Tiny Red Dot

For a game that’s already taking heat from its player base for the price of its extra cosmetic items, Black Ops 4's latest offering seems especially difficult to swallow. A red dot reticle showed up in the Black Ops 4 Black Market on December 25, wearing a price tag of 100 COD Points, or about $1.
