Welcome to the weekly wrap-up for May 24, 2019; a digest of the biggest stories and events in the world of Activision over the past seven days.

The week began with a breakdown of Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4’s resident demolitions expert, Battery. Then, with the recent release of Operation Spectre Rising, the Call of Duty Blog took a look at the new Contraband stream Nifo’Oti melee weapon, and Tigershark LMG. The Call of Duty Blog also announced Party Up*, where Black Ops Pass holders can now share the Black Ops Pass maps for everybody in your party for a limited time.

There were two map spotlights for Black Ops 4 this week; on Wednesday we gave advice for mastering Artifact; a natural environment and unique battleground. On Friday, we unmasked Masquerade, with tips and tricks for this large combat zone comprising of an embassy environment and city streets.

Also of note: Treyarch’s fascinating Declassified series; delving into the secrets behind the development of the Black Ops games. This week, part five of the series dropped, and we were there to cover it.

Our deep dive into Call of Duty®: Mobile also continued; this week we dropped into the fast and frantic Battle Royale mode coming with the mobile game. The blog post offering an extensive overview, showcasing match types and classes, a new way to revive, the different perspectives on combat, along with map location revelations, and more!

Crash™ Team Racing Nitro-Fueled fans needn’t worry either; we dropped some major knowledge about the two ways you can play the Adventure mode in the game!

Thanks for playing along with us. See you next week!
