Based on a new report from Charlie Intel, the first Contraband Stream is currently available in the Black Market, and Operation First Strike is set to launch. Operation First Strike will span the course of 54 days and offers an exclusive tier set. “The highest tier in First Strike is 200, and the final unlock is the Blinding Glory Signature Weapon for the ICR Assault Rifle,” Charlie Intel noted.

Reaching Tier 200 in Operation First Strike will also reward you with a new character, Hudson, for the Blackout mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. For more on the arrival of the Black Market, Operation First Strike, and the Halloween event, be sure to read through the full update over on the Activision blog.
