In celebration of 115 Day, Call of Duty Black Ops 4: Zombies players can get double XP and other bonuses for a limited time.
A blog post on the Treyarch website explains January 15 marks 115 Day and is a nod to the element 115, which plays a part in the deeper Call of Duty Zombies lore. For players, this means until January 18 you can earn double XP, double weapon XP, and double Nebulium Plasma across all platforms.
The Nebulium Plasma may be especially helpful for PS4 players, as three new epic craftable elixirs are being added this week. Perk Up will grant 4 new random perks, Refresh Mint resets cooldowns for your team, and Conflagration Liquidation gives you a bonfire sale power-up. There have also been some balancing changes to existing elixirs.
PlayStation 4 will also see the addition of Gauntlets, a new mode featuring 30 rounds of ever-changing challenges. Each round will see different restrictions or modifiers put on you and your team. Failing a round will give you a strike and earning three of these will end the game. If you do manage to complete rounds 10, 20, and 30 you can earn rewards including a special emblem adornment for finishing all 30 without any strikes.
Treyarch also states that Gauntlets will support competitive play by having timers and that more Gauntlets will be added in the future as well as other new features.
If zombies aren’t your thing Call of Duty’s battle royale mode, Blackout is getting a free trial period this week as well, running from January 17 – 24.
