Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 now offers unlocked framerate on PC in all game modes

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 released on both PC and consoles on Friday, quickly becoming one of the series best sellers while dominating streaming platforms like Twitch and Mixer. 

One of the highlights of this new game is the title's Blackout mode, Call of Duty's take on the Battle Royale genre, with all platforms targeting framerates of 60FPS. 

Like most other PC games, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's framerate relies on the power of the player's hardware, with the game's Zombies and traditional multiplayer modes running with an unlocked framerate, though Blackout, due to its more complex nature (increased player counts and map size) had its framerate limited to 120FPS at launch. 

Thankfully, Treyarch and Beenox have worked tirelessly over the weekend to crank the game's framerates to higher levels, first raising the cap to 160FPS and eventually unlocking the framerate to deliver a first-class experience for users of ultra-high-end PCs. Black Ops 4's Blackout mode is now limited solely by the power of the PC hardware running the game.

Wow... We need to be grateful that they gave us something that should be standard feature.

When will consoles die? They are seriously old tech now. They should be extinct like CDs. And then we could have games that are properly coded for PC.Quote

Instead of being naive and blaming consoles, you should know the intention was to always have an unlimited frame rate. They limited for testing purposes. Consoles have 0 to do with this. If the intention was to not have an unlimited frame rate, it would take significantly more work to make it unlimited. It's not just a function value that says limit FPS to 60.Quote

You should rather be grateful, that Treyarch quickly climbed their way up to the top of devs for me, because they are communicating such decisions and changes to the community in a very detailed and effective way.



Unlocked framerate is nice, but the netcode needs to be addressed some more... It feels like everyone is cheating in this game and that comes from Rank 23 in HC FFA in BO3... I'm only playing hardcore game modes since CoD4 and usually I'm the one who makes people cry like babies, but BO4 is strange and I refuse to believe that everyone has gotten better than me although I played WWII very much as well AND successfully... In BO4 it just seems as though everyone is running around ADSing all the time...

So there might be something going on with lag compensation.Quote

unlocked frames does not work well with every engine.

AC III, Skyrim etc etc turn into the ultimate pinball mode game with objects bouncing everywhere. I get 150fps of unplayable mayhemQuote

Oh yes, that's a great idea. Kill the consoles and leave gamers with one option: buy a horrendously over-priced PC with over-priced bug-riddled games filled with micro-transactions. Consoles are a bad idea? Giving gamers the ability to game without spending retarded money on a PC? Considering you can buy a console with extra controllers, a TV, and lord knows how many games for the same price as ONE top end video card, console death would be the WORST thing that could happening to the gaming industry.Quote
