Days of Summer Event Returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Activision and Treyarch today confirmed the return of the fan-favorite Days of Summer event.

Summer has officially arrived in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The annual Days of Summer event is live, bringing with it a host of new content. Players can earn a new gun, play on a brand new map, enjoy new game modes, and participate in a community challenge.

For the event, Treyarch challenges all players to complete 15 million matches across multiplayer, Zombies, and Blackout. The reward? All participants get the Grav assault rifle. The challenge starts today on PS4, and a week later on Xbox One and PC.

Also returning is the map Grind. The classic Call of Duty: Black Ops II map may have been a DLC map, but it managed to become one of the most beloved maps in the game. It returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 for free. All players get to enjoy this classic map. In terms of game modes, Capture the Flag is back.

As for Blackout, the new Ground War game mode arrives. In Ground War, players are split into platoons with the last platoon left standing as the winner. The initial circle size of the map is about one-third the size of the whole map to ensure more action.

Finally, an additional 50 tiers have been added to the Contraband stream. New to the stream is the Weapon Bribe, which is available at tier 25. The use of this bribe nets you a dupe-protected weapon from Reserves. At tier 50 is a brand new sniper rifle, the Vendetta.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
