A recent Black Ops 4 update has made Blackout unplayable for many players on Xbox One X, and currently there is no fix or update.
On December 1
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 of it didn't freeze, but I won one of those (my first W, yay) even though the looting was buggy. Just can't see what's in the bag. ”

Players have desperately tried to resolve the problem on their own, but it doesn't seem to matter what settings they play on. Restarting the console does not help, and solos, duo, and quad matches all seem to be affected on the Xbox One X. A lot of players have commented on this thread to confirm their settings and failed efforts to avoid the crashes. ] A patch arrived on December 21, bringing changes to Blackout's level 3 armor and fixing to a dead player's stash. Zombies were also temporarily removed from their Blackout locations, but the undead festively returned to Christmas time with little Santa hats. Blackbox on Microsoft's beefy Xbox One X console
