Call of Duty has used COD points (Call of Duty points) as their premium currency for years now. Players have come to expect that every annual release in the series will allow you to purchase COD points to spend on weapon skins, cosmetic items, and even unique weapons. In Call of Duty Black Ops 4, however, the currency is nowhere to be found, despite being part of the game's pre-order campaign.
The various special editions of Call of Duty Black Ops 4 let you spend over $100 on the game with the promise of receiving a large sum of COD points when the game launches. People who pre-ordered the game to get access to the premium currency are left wondering where their points are. As it stands, there is no way to even view how many COD points you have.
Treyarch has yet to let players know when they'll get access to their COD points, leaving them in the dark about the thing they potentially spent $100+ on. The multiplayer and Blackout menus are left conspicuously bare, clearly left waiting for their microtransactions to be implemented. The game's Zombies mode is the only part of the game that has any clear signs of microtransactions.
There's a Laboratory in the menu of this mode where you can purchase Concoctions with an in-game currency earned through playing. Although there's currently no way to buy this currency, it seems possible that this will be something you can buy with COD points at a later date.
