Treyarch’s Community Manager has recently revealed that a new patch is being rolled out for the PS3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops, this is patch 1.06 and there is a long-list of changes to gameplay and issues fixed, additionally there are also a couple of new features.
Let’s start with the two new features, now there are more contracts added to the rotation and also if you are playing LAN / system-link games there is a pre-match timer, nothing too exciting, however both are small changes which slightly improve the game.
You can see a full list of all of the issues addressed here, in this article I will mention what I believe to be the most important issues fixed, however for JD 2020’s full forum post check out this link.
There’s a long-list of connection related issues that have now been fixed, therefore on the whole multiplayer gaming should be more stable, also the game’s leaderboards feature has been improved, the only other specific change worth mentioning relates to contracts, apparently some of these have been fixed.
Some of the gameplay tuning changes are quite vague, we can confirm that there have been adjustments made to silenced sniper rifles, RCXD, AK74U and PSG1, also hit markers have been removed when shooting friendly equipment. Perhaps the most welcomed change is with the way that Second Chance works, now if you put an enemy into Second Chance you will get the full kill once that enemy dies, if someone else finishes off that enemy they will get an assist.
Do you like the sound of the change to Second Chance?
