The second phase of Operation Apocalypse Z, part of DLC 3 for Black Ops 4, has gone live on PS4 and Xbox One and features brand new game modes, customisation options and new Black Market weapons. As we head towards the release of DLC 4 and CoD Champs that begins on August 14th, here’s everything you need to know about update 1.22.
Popular party game mode Infected returns to Call of Duty in this update and offers a new set of twists as the zombie apocalypse continues to run throughout the Black Ops 4 universe. Infected: Final Stand will see players start on teams of survivors and zombies. Survivors have a single life but can be revived while the zombies have some respawns available as they attempt to hunt the survivors before the time runs out. Teams alternate after each round with the win being awarded to the first team to win four rounds.
The Havelina AA50 sniper rifle and the M16 tactical rifle have been added into the Black Market while tuning to the S6 Stingray Operator Mod has taken place along with some other changes. The AA50 and the M16 can be unlocked through Ultra Weapon Bribes and Reserves.
The contract reward rate has been increased throughout all three modes within Black Ops 4. Players are now guaranteed at least one normal contract with a Reserve Case reward in addition to the two harder contracts that are on offer.

The waves of the undead spawn in every 15 seconds and increase in numbers after each elimination.
