Call of Duty: Black Ops receives update

Call of Duty updated

If you’ve played Call of Duty: Black Ops in the last 32 hours, then you have likely already downloaded this patch. You were probably wondering though, what it was exactly that you downloaded.

A lot of the updates were background matchmaking tweaks, but there were a few gameplay adjustments as well. Most updates were put in place for both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 versions of the game, but there were some updates that were exclusive to a specific console. You can find some of the more interesting updates below, and here’s a link to the full list updates.

Issues Addressed:

–  Updated handling for UPnP-enabled routers to improve matchmaking conditions where users had strict or moderate NAT types. Also added in-game communications so that all players are aware of their NAT type in the Player Match party lobby.
–  Prevention of exploit that allowed players to keep custom classes and killstreaks after prestige.
–  Addressed an issue where Flak Jacket Pro would not always protect against ground fires left by Napalm Strikes.
–  Prevention of users losing their killstreak reward when switching classes at the start of a new round in round-based game modes.
–  Contracts will now reset when the player Prestiges.
–  Prevention of Valkyrie rocket exploding upon release under rare conditions.
–  Prevention of an issue where a player will get teleported outside the map boundaries under very specific circumstances.

 Gameplay Tuning:

–  Added a negative influencer to all spawn points to decrease the chances of spawning near an enemy.
–  Additional sound mix tuning for Ninja Pro users – increased ranges and volume of enemy footsteps, and removed player footstep sounds on concrete material types.
–  Increased headshot multipliers for sniper rifles. Sniper rifles with suppressors equipped will now always be ensured one-shot kill headshots.
–  Subtle increase in sniper rifle accuracy when scoping in.

Additional features:

–  Over 400 brand new Contracts
–  Practice Dummies (aka, AI bots) in offline Local Split Screen
–  A new camera editing mode in Theater called "Dolly Cam"
–  "Load Multiplayer by Default" option for the PS3
