Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 developer Treyarch has confirmed that it will launch a major update for the military shooter later this week, which will tackle some of the bigger issues that have reared their heads since launch.

One of the main issues that users have been reporting are poor network performances when engaging in Blackout quad games. It seems to be a bit more of a nusiance on Xbox One, and Treyarch has said it's working on a fix by attempting to first replicate the problem internally.

The studio is also working on other fixes, including one for an issue where red dot optics occasionally vanish and then reappear when aiming down the sights, and 'unexpected behaviour' that affects the emblem editor.

Other issues include a match suddenly ending in custom search and destroy games after round seven, well as the now-infamous and cheeky ability to look around corners when using emotes. 

No release date was given for the update, but we'll keep you posted.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out now for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. It's the first game in the series not to feature a traditional campaign, but makes up for it with a huge multiplayer suite, including the all-new Blackout battle royale mode.

Activision announced yesterday that Black Ops 4 has smashed its record for digital day one sales, beating out Call of Duty: WWII in the process. 

And you know what? Josh actually thought it was pretty damn good.
