Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Update Raises Blackout Duos Player Count

A new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 update is now available and it mainly focuses on the Blackout experience, lowering player count for Quads and raising the bar for Duos.

Duos battle royale is now covering 100 players, while Quads are supporting 88 players, twelve less in comparison with the starting point. That’s where users had encountered more stability issues, and this is probably why Treyarch lowered the player count after a week.
