Map Changes

Aside from these updates, daylight has started to enter slowly through the fog present in Blackout’s main map. This improves both visibility and lighting to Solo, Duos, and Quads matches. Even if a some amount of mist remains, tracking down your opponent becomes relatively easier.

Howeve,r Quads Fog and Alcatraz continue to have their current lighting conditions to make sure that things are interesting.
