If you have been frustrated with Call of Duty: Black Ops‘ spawn location system resulting in seemingly endless spawn kills, you are not alone, word has got back to Treyarch and we can now confirm that developers are working on a fix to sort out all of the spawning problems.
We first mentioned that spawn killing was a problem in this article here, we received lots of feedback from our readers which confirmed this was a major problem, however most people believed that an update would soon fix this issue.
When the Black Ops title update was recently rolled out on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network we revealed full details regarding the update, this showed that the update was released to mainly fix matchmaking and connection-related faults and did not have anything to do with the spawn-related problems, this frustrated gamers, however we now have some good news for you.
If you check out the official PS3 Black Ops Update thread and the official Xbox 360 Black Ops update thread on the Black Ops forums you will see that a spawn-related fix is currently “in progress”, which should mean that an update will soon be released to rectify all spawn-related issues, you can see full details regarding the problem and fix below.
· Improvements to the spawn system to resolve an issue where negative spawn influencers from specific game events were not always being deleted after the danger had cleared — in some matches, this was causing good spawns to be erroneously flagged by the game as bad spawns, which in turn forced actual bad spawns to get selected later in the match
This will undoubtedly go down well with Black Ops gamers, let’s just hope that the update is rolled out soon.
