Those players who pre-ordered Call of Duty Black Ops 4 were able to access the Private Beta of the new battle royale mode called Blackout last month. In this way, players could test and give feedback to Treyarch about the functioning of the battle royale mode. However, the CoD Black Ops 4’s items pick up function created some controversies among Beta testers.
In this sense, one of the most controversial issues was the way players had to use to pick up the in-game items (weapons, objects, etc.). On Xbox One, it was necessary to keep the X button pressed to add an article to the inventory or equip it directly. At first, it was required to hold the button for several seconds and then, in a beta update, Treyarch reduced the time even more.
However, that new update has not got a good response from players and, finally, Treyarch has announced on Twitter that players will be able to configure the way they pick up in-game items.
Treyarch chose to give Call of Duty Black Ops 4 players the option to select how they pick up items
Also, Treyarch has published an image in which you can check out the options menu where we can choose whether to pick up items by holding the corresponding button or by just pressing it.
However, in the same tweet, David Vonderhaar, design director of Treyarch, warns players that would select the option to collect objects only by pressing the corresponding button that they cannot reload the weapon while picking up items.
Treyarch’s Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will go on sale next Friday, October 12th, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and will include the long-sought-after battle royale mode, Blackout. So, we expect a fabulous new CoD title, modernized for multiplayer via its own battle royale mode.
