Black Ops 2 patch 1.05 craved on PS3

There will be a number of problems needing a fix within Black Ops 2 patch 1.05 on the PS3, although we can officially confirm that the Sony console is still experiencing crashing and freezing issues for some gamers. Our PS3 Slim model has crashed once today after an hour and another time after just 10 minutes, which happened while reviewing Call of Duty Black Ops 2 and meant a hard reset had been needed. This is not a new problem and we thought everything had been solved after installing Black Ops 2 patch 1.04, but sadly that is not the case in our tests and according to a couple of emails we received from PR readers.

It is also worth pointing out that we’ve heard from a number of gamers that had been experiencing Black Ops 2 freezes previously on the PS3, but these were fixed after installing the last update. Two PR readers emailed us within the last few days complaining that the crashing is still there, but we could only confirm this with our system today. The crashing is likely a problem that will not affect every PS3 gamer, so we’d love to hear from PR readers and find out how many of you are still having problems with Black Ops 2 after installing the latest patch?

What needs fixing with Black Ops 2 patch 1.05? The developers will never be able to satisfy all PS3 players, although having to hard restart your console a few times a day is not a nice experience and one that can damage a hard drive over time. If you have a wish list for Black Ops 2 patch 1.05 we’d love to hear it, so hit the comments with your requests. Is there a problem really bugging you in Black Ops 2, which you feel needs to be addressed in the next update?

The new update has caused me to lag every game, where I drop to one bar like every 30 seconds and back to full bar. Never had that problem before the update.

John William Hunter

My Black Ops 2 was fine until patch 1.04 came out now it freezes all the time. I can’t reach high rounds on zombies anymore and worst of all hard restarting my ps3 IS NOT GOOD!! Please resolve this issue because I really enjoy the game! Otherwise I’m getting my money back and so will many other people!

I gave up on multiplayer a little while back because 3arc has done a god awful job at monitoring the players so nearly every lobby is filled with prestige masters who simpy hacked and don’t have a clue as to how the game is played its annoying as hell but what’s worse is the constant lack of recording for zombies. High scores may sometimes not count at all or if a player quits or times out nothing is recorded. This is purely pathetic how they did not even take care of this yet…

Treyarch fix this please!

1. Freezes.

2. Glitches in Zombies.

3. Weird noise with Zombies mode! ( Watch it on youtube! )

Treyarch, fix this 3 things please and the PS3 players will be happy.

Is Call of DUTY BLACK OPS 2 a game ? or just a title sequence ? as thats all i can f*#!ing see followed by a nice freeze frame :@ Just got bo2 for xmas …and its hard freezing all the time I was able to play two levels of campaign and then it started …now I have been unable to even get to the main menu despite trying for several hours every single time it has frozen.. I have tried all the suggested solutions such as deleting the game data utility and it still continues to hard freeze also… Read more »

Buzz Dengue has a very important point too. That might be the problem because i get killed all the time and I’m like what look at the killcam and it shows something totally different.

The game is good but the only hang-up is some matches it feels that the enemy has an advantage even if I shoot first perfect aim. Some matches it feels like its not a fair match and I’m at a disadvantage. The hit detection is the most important problem that needs to be looked at too before anything else.

Having to shoot 15 bullets at the enemy when he kills me instantly is not fun that should be fixed.

In All the Call of duty’s GAMES Theres a problema with the LAG AND SERVER ISSUES FIX THAT BITCHES!

Tamohorski

1. lag/lag compensation… what ever, it is unbelievable frustrating to shoot the enemy 4-6 times and getting only 2 hits. Every hit MUST count. At least get the lag at MW2 level. That was tolerable to play and was probably the main reason why I enjoyed MW2 so much more than BO or MW3 even losing some other areas for those games. 2. Maybe fixing lag will remove this other annoying issue too or something else must be done. You see there are these guys who are able to “dance” in the middle of fire by moving side to side… Read more »

My BO2 crashes during the cut scene right before they go to Colossus HQ. I had to hard reset the PS3 in order to be able to get the PS3 out of its suspended animation stage. When it restarts it asks me if I want to send a report to Sony and the game developer. After that it tells me it will restore the file system due to an error. I assumed my HDD was going bad so I changed the hard drive. Reinstalled the game as well as update 1.04 and the game still freezes right after the Colossus… Read more »

I have a ps3 60gb fat model and every time I play black ops 2 turns off after 10 minutes followed by 3 beeps and flashing red light

Buzz Dengue

Has anybody else had an issue with corrupted game sound? I periodically loose all game sounds to a garbled messed of spastic audio that won’t stop till I quit and restart the disk. The inter-player headset chatter is fine… just the game sound track and voices… ???

I gave up trying to play Black Ops 2 last night – THE LAG IS SO FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!… it is all but unplayable… I am likely going to try and return the game… I know… “good luck with that”… I am giving up. I tried all the router settings for DMZ and fixed internal IP’s but something else is WAY WRONG. It is NOT my router, it is NOT my connection speed. AND NOW, just to add insult to injury they announced the “Play with the Devs” event this weekend! Nice, now I can get “Lag Slapped” by the developers of… Read more »

déjà le 1er problème à régler est celui des freezes, avant la 1ere MAJ tous marchaient très bien! j’avais mis le multi par défaut, depuis la MAJ je n’arrive même plus à accéder au menu, a part au premier allumage de la console, après freeze sur freeze au bout de 20mn et impossible de rejouer jusqu’au lendemain, 1er freeze après le premier chargement, ou après le deuxième, freeze pendant la connexion au multi ( si j’arrive à aller à ce stade là ce qui est rare! ) ensuite après si j’arrive à passer la connexion au multi je me retrouve… Read more »

mine crashed 2 days ago and after system reset had message saying save game data damaged or missing, resulting in losing weapons prestige to lvel 2 and player prestige level 1 and was at level 38. so pi**ed cant believe have to start all over again. games been freezing even after software update and even during friendly multiplayer whilst offline.

Many of the people here have pretty much covered most of the issues that should be addressed. Time is the enemy here Activision. The longer you wait, the worse your reputation is going to get. -Zombies (solo or co-op) ALWAYS FREEZES ON the BUS. I’ve had two instances where it has froze while walking the map. The joy of it all is that I can not complete the Easter Egg because once I have one or two steps to go it locks my PS3 up. Frustrating. -Multiplayer freezes when transitioning between matches. I can almost predict when this is going… Read more »

The next update should address playability because it’s still not playable. It still crashes. I only play zombies and I cannot play any long games because it always crashes without fail. It still crashes.I can sometimes play to round 20 but the system still freezes in the low 20’s – often way before that. It still crashes.

I cannot speak on campaign because I will never play it again after being unable to progress due to invisible walls impeding progress towards the objective. Maybe that was fixed?

I just freeze doing everything. I can play a multiplayer match, but as soon as it tries to get back to the lobby I completely freeze. I cannot even start a zombies match. And campaign freezes every few minutes. I am sick adn tired of this crap. I was able to play the first weekend. I downloaded my Hardened Edition camo and BAM, have not had a full game since. $90 to not play! And of course I fill out the return stuff online and magically nobody at activision gets back to me. Bunch of crooks.

Only map i can play is nuketown zombies. i think it is because there less people playing on it. not sure though. lets say i play 20 games of zombies not doing nuketown zombies. playing tranzit or bus depot or something like that ill freeze 15 or 16 times needing hard reset. some of my friends on psn freeze occasionally and there are some that freeze all the time. im scared that when ps3 nuketown zombies is released to the public it will cause that map for me to freeze too if a patch doesnt fix by then which i… Read more »

The reconnecting to party screen sometimes takes several minutes, I once had the reconnecting to party screen not go away therefore I had to quit the game altogether. When I back out of a lobby and hit the bring party tab some of my clan gets left behind where it should bring all party members back to our main lobby. I have had some games where one side had over 9 people and the other side had maybe three, this has happened to me a handful of times. On several occasions my clan of six are waiting for a game… Read more »

I have to now send my ps3 into Sony for them to fix my hard drive. Black ops 2 has damaged by system and has corrupted it… Sony got me to go into system settings and restore system and restore it twice through safe mode with no luck. after the 9hr restore my system started ops 2 got past the 1.4 update then froze… I called Activision they wanted me to try my disk on another system and try another game on my system… Well my bros ops2 disk froze and my game worked on buddies system for 10 rounds… Read more »

The freezing problem has only started for me since the latest patch, and I’m now unable to play more than a single game online before I have to hard restart on my console- absolutely pathetic.

Activision has to look up on PS3, and not only on Microsoft, Activision don’t care about us at all, Xbox players get everything first before we do, instead of giving them out and the same time.

I would love for the game to stop shutting down my Fat PS3 so I can stop stealing my sons superslim PS3 just to play BO2 and then having to switch back to my fat one to play skyrim, bf3, and the other games that I have DLC and savegames for on.

Even after the patch the game still crashes at multiple places. It’s either the intro video, the cutscene of the first level, or loading a multiplayer game. I just stopped after multiple attempts, luckily BEFORE BO2 fried my PS3.

They really need to sort out the freezing/lockin up problem which has really made this game the worst call of duty to date! Ive never experienced anything like it with any other game. I have had bops2 since launch night and that was the only night the game did not crash on me every day since then the game has crashed my console over 500 times. I have not been able to get a game of zombies because of this constant freezing which has ruined the game!!!

Buzz Dengue

They still haven’t fixed the issue of what you see in real-time on your screen with your eyes, in other words, the game you see and react to, IS NOT the same game you see on a kill cam replay. When you see an opponent and put at least 6 rounds on them (no flack jacket), only to have them fire once and drop you is so lame. Then on the replay, it shows that you only fired one shot… WHY IS THIS SO? Is it the fabled lag-switching? Is it lag compensation? It makes playing Black Ops 2 so… Read more »

Please patch the following:

– Lag Lag Lag (your official article does not fix the lag issues).

– Ability to cancel out of “Reconnecting to party”

– Make matchmaking system REGIONAL. Causes severe lag otherwise.

– Address lag issues on main menu. Scroll down three line items, push down….delay delay……next item (4th line item) is selected.
