The in-game store is now open for business in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The Black Market, Call of Duty’s reward system, is live on PlayStation 4. Players can unlock new cosmetic items on Sony’s console first, while players on other platforms will have to wait a week for the privilege.
The Black Market’s “Contraband Stream” is the event pass system for Black Ops 4. Taking part in seasonal or special events will move you along a loot path. As you progress, you’ll unlock various event rewards including skins, gestures, special weapons, and new characters. For now, these events seem to be free for all to participate in, but Activision does note that they’ll be turning on the ability to purchase items with real money in November.
