Black Ops 2 Xbox 360 patch leaves lag, connection issues

By Chris Cook - Nov 22, 2012

Most Microsoft console owners would know about the first Black Ops 2 Xbox 360 patch that went live within the last 24 hours, if they play the Call of Duty game that is, and this Black Ops 2 update has followed a number of fixes for the PS3 platform, which is due to some serious crashing and freezing on the Sony console. While the PS3 has experienced a lot more problems than the Xbox 360, it is worth pointing out that both systems have gamers reporting about lag and connection issues when trying to play online with Black Ops 2 matchmaking.

We’ve embedded the Black Ops 2 Xbox 360 patch notes below, which came thanks to a recent update by Activision Community Support that explains exactly what got fixed, and also clearly shows what has been missed and is plaguing Xbox 360 gamers. The first patch, aka title update 1, has fixed some really focused problems with the Xbox 360 version of Black Ops 2 and you can see this in the list of fixes below. These include improvements to live streaming, fixes to emblem icons, UI error messages, spawning, and a lot more.

Black Ops 2 problems remaining on the Xbox 360 – we’ve heard about a number of issues still being experienced after the patch is installed, although the most common problems are focused on lag and connection related problems when playing Black Ops 2 in multiplayer and zombies. One user said they’ve had enough of “inconsistent connections and broken perks“, and explained that all they get is lag while playing with friends and family on the Xbox 360.

Do you believe your Black Ops 2 connection and lag issues are not your end? We’d like to point out that some Black Ops 2 issues can be related to your Internet connection, so if you find a zombie come from nowhere while gaming on the Xbox 360 or PS3, then make sure your connection is not to blame first. The classic “where did he come from, I just shot him 6 times in the head and he’s still alive” can certainly be connection problems your end in many cases. We’ve already heard that patch 1.04 is being worked on for the PS3, which should fix freezing still being experienced by some gamers.
