Reaper gets removed from PS4 version of Black Ops 4, and there are other changes too

Treyarch as released an update for the PS4 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and one of the biggest changes is that Reaper has been removed from the game due to audio issues when it comes to footsteps. Don’t worry though as this is just a temporary measure and Reaper should be back dealing out punishment in next week’s update. This was all confirmed on Twitter by Treyarch last night, and the studio also released patch notes for the rest of the update.


The update has led to some restrictions of weapons in World League including the Reaver C86 and Backhander, in Zombies Alpha Omega the code input bug on Rushmore has been addressed, in Alcatraz the Warden cannot be blocked by Hawk, and David Mason is available to players that had unlocked the character previously. You can find the full patch notes below.
