Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has releasaed the 'Fun in the Sun' weekend update for this weekend. This comes as part of the 'Days of Summer' event announced at the start of the month and comes with a host of interesting new bonuses exclusive to this weekend.

The major features for this update is the global double XP - meaning you will earn double the experience for multiplayer, zombies, league play and merits in Blackout. This update also features many playlist updates across Black Ops 4.

This is taken directly from Treyarch's post on Reddit

What Is In The Fun In Th Sun Weekend?

It’s officially the first day of summer...who’s ready for some 2XP and free map access all weekend long? Better yet, why not all the way through Tuesday? Our Fun in the Sun Weekend kicks off today in Black Ops 4, featuring:

  • 2XP in Multiplayer
  • 2XP in Zombies
  • 2XP in League Play
  • 2X Merits in Blackout
  • Free Black Ops Pass MP Map access for all players in all Featured, Core, and Hardcore playlists
  • Map Pack Moshpit playlist featuring Masquerade, Artifact, and WMD
  • 50% Off Tiers

This event runs through 10AM Tuesday, when we’ll be dropping more new content in Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies. Speaking of which...

New Content Arrives Tuesday with Contracts, Hacienda Twilight, Blackout Updates + More

Our next major update is coming on June 25th, including:

  • The launch of Contracts on all platforms, kicking off with a rotating selection of up to 28 Contracts to complete each day across all four modes (up to 196 Contracts per week!)
  • Our newest alternative lighting map in Multiplayer, Hacienda Twilight
  • More maps added to rotation for Prop Hunt and Capture the Flag
  • New Medals, Equipment, and Humiliations in Blackout
  • The introduction of Hard Mode Gauntlets in Zombies
  • Weapon tuning for the Daemon 3XB, Switchblade X9, and MOG 12 + more

We also have some highly-requested bug fixes lined up for Tuesday that couldn’t be hotfixed before this next major game update. An issue with leveling up MKII Weapons is planned to be fixed in this update, as well as a remaining exploit on Grind. Thanks as always for the reports, and we appreciate your patience while we’ve nailed down these issues.

In case you missed it, head over to our Contracts Blog for all the info on how Contracts work in Black Ops 4, as well as intel on the new Ultra Weapon Bribe that we’ll be introducing the following week as part of a new special event.

Grav Assault Rifle Unlocked on PS4

With 15 million matches completed during our Community Challenge on PS4, the Grav assault rifle has now been unlocked for PS4 players in Multiplayer! Xbox One and PC players are already well past the 50% mark with their combined efforts, and will unlock the Grav in MP once the Community Challenge has been achieved across all platforms. Almost there!

On the competitive side, we’ve made a conscious decision to include the Grav in League Play. The Grav was designed with competitive play in mind, built with a set of attachments that are all unrestricted in the CWL ruleset. The release of the Grav gave us an opportunity to keep the competitive meta fresh with a new weapon available to everyone, and offers an alternative to the KN-57 or ICR-7 for mid-to-long range position play. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the performance and community/pro feedback for this weapon as we evaluate its place in the future of League Play.

Featured Playlist Updates

We’ve added Map Pack Moshpit to the MP Featured Playlists with free access to Masquerade, Artifact, and WMD for all platforms, and for Zombies players on PC, we’ve replaced the Chaos and Aether Moshpits with individual playlists for each Zombies map. Enjoy the 2XP in all modes through Tuesday, and we’ll see you online.
