Xbox Issues with Black Ops 4 Blackout


Staff member
A recent Black Ops 4 update has made Blackout unplayable for many players on Xbox One X, and currently there’s no fix or update.

On December 18, the arrival of Black Ops 4’s Absolute Zero event on Xbox One brought a new Specialist character, tons of new Contraband loot, and an unfortunate Blackout issue that seems to be specifically plaguing the Xbox One X console. Xbox One X owners are reporting that many of their matches freeze and crash if they manage to outlive most of their opponents. In the fight to be the last player standing, many players are stating that the issue often occurs once the 100 player count has dwindled down to about 15 players left on the Blackout battlefield. The game will freeze and eventually crash, or players are forced to restart the console.

Reddit user Joemehl commented on one of the many ongoing threads to say, “For me the “sweet spot” [for crashing] is between 30 and 15. I had like 5 crashes yesterday. Luckily, the two games I made top ten it didn’t freeze, but I won one of those (my first W, yay) even though the looting was buggy af. Like can’t even see what’s in the bag.”
