Post COD Black Ops Patch: Cheats and Map Glitches?

By Posted 19 Nov 2010, 01:43

If you have turned on your Xbox 360 or PS3 today and loaded up Call of Duty: Black Ops, you would have noticed an update for the popular game. The patch has fixed a number of problems that can be seen in our earlier post, although some people are still reporting problems.

We followed up with details of PS3 network / firewall problems when trying to connect to friends and family in COD Black Ops, which were reported to us by several players. The problems did not stop there, even after players had updated to v1.3 of the game they continued to report errors that some say were not there before updating. Has this happened to you?

Before this patch went live we had experienced glitches in Black Ops with dogs, and zombies. Other players reported people cheating in certain multiplayer maps as well. Do you still see Black Ops cheats and glitches after installing the latest patch?

Let us know if you’re still seeing glitches, and if you are playing on the PS3 or Xbox 360. The most common problems we’ve had reported is respawning issues, and lag (that could be user related). We’re still waiting on host migration for zombie games to stop “host ended game” problems.

  • Joe

    Yes I have it for the Xbox360 in the worst one that still exists is the bad respawning, they spawn enemies right behind you.

    • Mike

      another thing that is garbarge is that i cant even join a match with my buddies anymore at least one of us gets a message saying game lobby not in session or some stupid crap

      • maddscottish

        me to m8 can only join with certain friends.
        Whats the crack there then its only this game really gets on my t*t ends lol.
        I also hate that you can pick the same level that u have just played.
        You have all the cheats in nuketown (which is the worst map by far) playing that map over and over to get points and kills. Napalm strikes every 30 secs thats not playing the game realy

  • John

    Yeah spawning is an issue, especially on a smaller map. I've literally stood in one area, and as long as i didn't look at that particular spawn, enemies were spawning right next to me.

  • sjk

    wow really, thats not a gitch… theres never going t be a first person shooter where the spawns are perfect….

  • Trent

    Spawns are so terrible it makes me wanna sell the game

  • Bobby

    Of course, apparently theres a way to quickscope, which they said would NOT be in Black Ops, it involves a bolt action rifle (L96) and the variable scope. Ive already had several run ins with Q.S'ers, and its already annoying me ¬_¬ Personally, id just remove the Variable scope from the L96 (But thats just me) hope this gets fixed.

    • bob is bad

      You mad cause quickkscoping actually takes skill… unlike reg guns in which all it is, is spraying

  • Brandon

    we were promised that this kind of irresponsibility wouldn't happen…i guess this goes to show you – Infinity Ward v.s. Treyarch, it's all the same – Activision. It's garbage. Thanks to Mr. Kotick, the douchebag in charge. We were duped once more. And for me, the last time.

  • Billy

    Is there something special about level 25 in mp? I shot a guy not once, not twice, but 5 times. One time I was actually behind him and unloaded a whole clip on him. He just spun around and knived me. Super body armor? Invunerability? Another idiot hacker?

    • shadowl

      I've had similar problems as billy there, also I have noticed that everyone else weapons seem to be way more powerful than mine I'm at level 42 and no matter what weapon I use I have to unload clip after clip into someone just to kill them. Mean time all they have to do is fire a burst shot and wammo I'm dead, and no its not in hardcore its in regular mode that his is happenening. Hell I can't even get a 5 killstreak going in this game and I'm hittin people in the head.

      I've also noticed that there seems to be a lag time between when you fire and when the bullets hit there target just look in the las kill cams of the game. Yoou would see a guy unload a whole clip into someone and that person hes hittin runs around the corner then dies from being hit. I have to say thhis will be the last call of duty I buy, they don't make fps like they used, you know back when you shoot someone the bullets actually work and the person you hit goes down.

      • K-mann21

        You both need to get a better connection. You can't kill any with lag, either it's you or the other guy.

    • K-mann21

      Bad connection, get a better internet provider.

      • hugo

        oh trust me i thought that was the problem also wasted money and still the same sold my game for that reason

    • 25654158 THE BEAST

      Hope it gets better it is a beast game so have fun and eat your vegetables

  • matt

    i threw a grenade and it hit someone direct hit and he didnt die

    • K-mann21

      He has to be close to death before that works, shoot'em a couple of times first then try it.

    • carl

      well that sucks but quit crying the world doesent need to know

  • mentaldemonz

    This game is so flawed! After a week I’m already losing interest with it! I played MW2 for over a year straight and never grew tired of it!!! For me glitches & elevators made the game more exciting,,, Black ops is just dark and dreary feeling,,, No fun at all!!!

    Black Ops Lag, Lag, LAGS like a SOB,,, It’s like other players can see you 1-2 seconds before you can see them!!! Especially when you get into an intense shoot out with somebody the frames just start skipping like crazy!

    Waiting forever to connect into a lobby!!! Black ops is not sniper friendly, Quick scopes,,, No way!!!

    The only thing I like about Black Ops is the customization of the emblems,,, reticle sights,,, and face paint!!! Other then that is game sucks Ass-hole juice through a straw!!! This game is just a regurgitated version of WaW!!! This one will be collecting dust with Waw in a week or 2!!! Can’t wait until Infinity Ward makes COD8 to show these GayARCH fools how it’s done!!! Money Wasted!!!

    • hugo

      agree

  • mentaldemonz

    This game is a nightmare to play! It's slow and sluggish,,, it lag, lag,,,LAGS like no bodys biz! It's as if other players can see you 1-2 seconds before you see them!!! Updates didn't do swat! It takes forever to get into a free-for-all lobby! Spawning chumps right behind you! After a week I'm already losing interest in playing it! And I played mw2 for over a year straight!!! For me Glitches & Elevators made MW2 Fun!!! Remember the unlimited ammo glitch??? I don't care who you were,,, THAT WAS PURE FUN!!! Launching grenade after grenade,,, rocket after rocket,,, don't get no better then that!!! (((maybe not so fun if you were on the other end of that grenade or rocket))) but it was still exciting!!! Elevating high into the sky,,,, sniping someone while your next to GOD ='s FUN!!! Getting out of the map was and is fun!!! Now Black Ops is just plain,,,,dull & dark,,, no fun at all,,, being locked into a map w/ invisible barriers! I don't care if it's not fair,,, it was still fun as hell while it lasted!!!
    Black Ops is far from sniper friendly,,, I call it the "drunken sniper waver",,, Quick scope no way!!! When are they going to make a COD thats sniper friendly??? I want to be able to get up on to the roofs if i'm sniping,,, snipers should automatically come with a rope and grappling hook to do just that!!! Anyway Black ops is boring,,, it's a regurgitated version of WaW,,, What I do like about Black Ops is the customization of the emblems, reticle sights, and face paints! Other then that it's BORING,,, and the game will end up collecting dust w/ WAW in about a 2 weeks!!! Infinity Ward hurry up and make COD 8 and show these TREYARCH guys how to make a Call Of Duty game!!! Treyarch I want my money back!!!

    • K-mann21

      cheater!!!!! You suck so much that you need cheats and glitches to get kills, lame!

      • mentaldemonz

        That comment would come from a dude who can’t hit an elevator!!! Boy,,, I been playing Call of duty games since you were just a wet stain in your mommy’s panties!!! Come check me out on xbox 360 my gamer tag is mentaldemonz clan tag (((NAKI))),,, Man, I’ll put you and your whole clan in a box everytime!!! Your probably one on those dudes who can’t survive with out an UMP!!! I’ll rush you with a sniper rifle and put you down 9 x’s out of 10! Tell your mom I want my boxers back!

        • K-mann21

          you got shit on this mf!! bring it on! oh, by the way get a real system, not that piece of shit xbox. I'll be on ps3, a real mans system.

    • christ

      sounds like you cant play unless you cheat ahole, games better off without players like you

  • mentaldemonz

    This game is a nightmare to play! It's slow and sluggish,,, it lag, lag,,,LAGS like no bodys biz! It's as if other players can see you 1-2 seconds before you see them!!! Updates didn't do swat!

      Only a duchebag would post his dumbass comment twice

  • Joe

    You should be patching the multiplayer glitches, and zombie barriers, and not the gun glitches, having two guns is retarded when after round 40 it takes almost 10 shots with the X2 ray gun to kill 1 fucking zombie, After the patch the leader-boards should be reset, no ones gonna beat them without the glitchs. Fucking idiots making these patches. We played WAW because of the gun glitch we want more guns especially sense all the new guns fucking suck mad balls and take retarded amounts of shots to kill zombies. I am madly disappointed in the zombies on this game, it was the best thing trey-arc ever did with WAW, and made that game actually playable, Black ops ruined it, and to be honest I'm not going to be playing the zombies on it ever again, other than the oldschool maps… Mostly multiplayer now, because you ass holes cant fucking leave a good thing as it is, the barriers i agree patch them, the gun glitches still work in WAW and for good reason, they're fucking cool, and really don't make it any easier… This is going to be ignored so theirs no point in making this comment, but i wanted to put my 2 cents out their. Reset the leader boards, or un-patch the gun glitch so we have a fucking chance to beat the High score/Round survived without the barrier glitches. It only makes sence.

    • Andrew

      Totally Agree

    wah wah wha

    the spawning is so bad. last night, in a game, both teams were spawning at the same point for awhile. So we all were spawning, and blasting each other, then spawning again, and blasting each other. This happened for about 3 rounds, then it started to chunk us apart. The last kill was me spawning, then a guy spawning right in front of me and me shooting him.. LoL. Terrible. I quit after 3 games and just laughed.

    This game had/has potential, but I can't play it.. Its like whats the point.

  • Jay

    Grenades are less powerful in this game, especially the Semtex

  • Jay

    The respawns in this game are a bit annoying especially on the Nuke Town. However if you've played the game or read this page you now know about it and can amedn your gaming style to count for it.

    At present I know if i kill someone on my left and start to run if I spin and look left/right an enemy will more than likely respawn.

    The games respawn in my eyes have tried to stop the old Run N Gun strategy, however if your smart you can counter this :)

  • K-mann21

    You had a head shot or a save, not a doulbe kill.

  • Andres

    idk

  • Seth

    The game could have been so much better. I personally love sniping, but there are next to NO sniping areas that I would even consider using on this game.

  • sean

    one time it was do laggy that at the start of a search match i was killing this guy for half a minute knifn each other and semtexed him and kept shooting him and still didnt die 1 minute later it just turned gray and froze

  • Roger Moore

    I disagree with most of these comments, I have found this game to be very well balanced and pure fun to play. Forget about glitches and spans and try to have a good time. Nobody likes a crybaby

    • K-mann21

      I agree

  • Greg

    im going to back to StarCraft 2 on PC…. Patching the zombie gun glitch is a disaster!!!

  • Greg

    PS I'm no noob. Currently ranked ~68 in zombies as roachy g.

    • robert

      hey roachy g add me babyhuey92 we can go to a zombie killing spree

    • Auzi

      Yes you are. Your a B*&%H who has to use a gun glitch to get that far. Cuz your too much of a HoMO to do it the old fashioned way.

  • D..

    PS3-I can deal with glitches I can't deal with this game freezing my system all the time

  • SouthSideScotty

    BlackOps sucks balls Waa Waa Waaa, when I go 2 the mall w/ my mommy Im gonna ask Santa Clause 2 bring me a copy so till then Im just really pissed that all my friends r playn that now Waa Waa Waaa, so Im gonna go 2 every forum and say its the worst game ever Waa Waa waaa and act like only tards would play BlackOps and say that MW2 is so much better Waa waa waaaa…

  • audi787b

    Black ops and Mw2 were alot more enjoyable when people could glitch and use elevators
    and all sorts of zombie glitches that we figure out like gun glitch and barriers i reckon treyarc should make a seperate lobby on BLOPS and MW2 that has no glitches patched!
    I hope your reading my post Treyarc + Infinity Ward + Activision…..
    Thanks and i hope u can make the seperate lobby!…

    • X_bOwZz

      hello audi787b I was playing mw2 on ps3 last night (Tuesday November 30 2010) when I got into a public team deathmatch with you. The maps we played were afghan and scrapyard. In afghan I watched the kill cam of you killing me numerous times :) and came to the conclusion that you were using Elite Mossy V8 (correct me if I am wrong). Anyway I was hopping you could tell me how to get this hack for I have looked everywhere and can’t find it without having to pay for a challenge lobby, please get back to me, and I’m sorry if I got the wrong audi787b

  • audi787b

    I Totally agree with u mentaldemonz add me on psn audi787b or send me msg if my friends list is fulllll……peace out!-_-

    Somethimg needs to be done about team killing to steal your own teammates care packages! To share with your team you should have a quick confirm button weather your alive or dead. Example: I drop a care package and my teamate shoots me to steal it. He tries to pick it up but in order for him to be able to I must tap the B button first to confirm that its ok. I am tired of my team shooting me for my care packages!

  • http://beast.com jacob r

    ok first of all stop crying you uber noobs im a 3rd prestige level 36 and the game has no lag the reason you guys have lag is beacaus u have a pos xbox 360 GET A PS3!!!!!

  • 25654158 THE BEAST

  • jaybok

    Black ops is soo freaking horrible all the maps are tottaly not sniper friendly and you can't even blend in with your surrroundings with ghost whats the point of hiding from the radar, people really just stare at the screen not the radar my enemies can just fucking see me a mile away, and fucking shoot me with the worst acccuricy weapon, WITH A SHITY SILENCER

    Gimme a break

  • jaybok

    About the care package stealing it's not actually fuckijng sharing if they shoot ya and steal it
    it's sharing if you llet them take it like pressing a button. if they want my care package

    they have to fuck off

  • luke

    i cheat

  • luke

    im gonna batter u if u cheat u ratifyed mupit

  • Tom

    dude cod black ops sucks so much balls that mine would POP it's so bad.i once drove my rc car up some guys ass and detonated it and didn't kill him(not even damage points HOE) so if u ask me any modders and hackers can go **** themselves and they need to change the spawning up a whole shitload if u ask me. it need's to be more accurate and they should just have separate spawns and if theres an enemy in the friendly spawn then have them switch or somethin.

  • Tom

    Call of Duty BO is stupid, things don't work, they never happen, they happen too often why not just never make another one again then it will save all our problems.

  • mac_shoots = PS3

    whats with the host migration if you cant kick any1 y have a host because like when your playing it will lag so that it can pick a new host

  • hardcore player

    Black ops i have found to be fun. the designers have done a very good job and i hope they keep up the good work. i dont see why people would want to glitch and those that do are clearly shit and need the extra help. i have read some of the posts left on this forum and found that most of you just want to bitch if the game is that bad dont play it and leave those that dont wish to glitch or cheat or download mods to usb's and all that crap to play it without the worry of nobs that do. i do agree that they should reset the zombies records so people that dont glitch have a chance of being at the top spot even if its only for a little while and if treyarch decide to read this i would like them to create a new hardcore online game similar to domination allow higher kills. i would also like to thank the whole team at treyarch for keeping on top of all the cheating and glitching as bet as they can
