UPDATE: A similar patch has gone live right now on Xbox 360 for Call of Duty: Ghosts. We’re getting reports that a new Classified Patch, which is unlocked via finding all the Extinction Eggs has been added, Invasion DLC maps are now in all playlists, and added support for Nemesis DLC.

The patch has also added new Orange hit markers to show which hit was the kill hit. The patch also added a new indicator to show you when you’re on the enemy oracle.

A video posted on PrestigeIsKey channel shows the new Oracle Indicator:

We’ll update when Infinity Ward releases the official patch notes.

    Fix the game, Ghosts on PC has less than 4k players

    • CraziBoi94

      They do this every time. PC is their test system for consoles. They release the patch first on there, then on console once a new DLC is out.

      • smb3master

        As far as I’m aware, the PC versions have always had less players, at least since MW2.

        • jordanxbrookes

          That’s because Call of Duty isn’t really for PC. Call of Duty will always be more of a console game.

          • smb3master

            Yeah, I got CoD4, MW2, and Blops on both Xbox and PC, and I always preferred the Xbox version, ever since I’ve just got them on Xbox.

          • DidUknowiPwn

            You’ve obviously never seen the mod tools for CoD4/5 and previous versions of CoD.
            Also ProMod.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I have.

          • RdJokr

            Ironically, the first two COD titles were all PC exclusive. It’s only after the Microsoft deal that it became an Xbox title that got ported to other platforms.

          • jordanxbrookes

            You know what I mean though, it’s a game that is meant for console, just like how Battlefield is meant for PC.

          • RdJokr

            With some effort from the devs (and probably permission from Activision), COD can become a good PC game. BO2 came close in terms of PC graphics customization, but multiplayer connection sucked, and the config files are encrypted. Hopefully AW can improve on this.

          • pulseimpact

            COD 2 was not PC exclusive. It was planned for 360 as a launch title…it only got released later because the 360 wasn’t ready.

          • MichiganerE

            That’s funny considering Call of Duty started out as a PC exclusive franchise.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yes someone already pointed it out.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Of course it started as a PC exclusive title. Just like most FPS… The PC was (and still is) the best choice for FPS games.

          • DopeAap

            It has always been for pc. I remember playing a type of infected on cod2 servers back in ’05. Since mw2 it hasn’t been fun anymore

        • Ben

          But not that less… BO2 has over 10k.

      • Keshav Bhat

        PC versions of the game doesn’t require first party certification, so the patch can release when IW wants to release it. For consoles, Sony & MSFT have to approve the patch before it releases, so it takes longer time before the patch can actually release for consoles.

    • Edwin Cortez

      I believe they dont focus that much on pc mainly because the most popular games on pc are free to play. Dota LoL etc are the type of games that make big money on pc. But you look at COD or fifa they suck on pc but on console they dominate sales.

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        Holy retarded macaroni.

      • DopeAap

        ehm, no. Do you think they play Dota 2 etc. because their free? NO! It’s because they are Mobas, and they like mobas. it has nothing to do with being free to play or not. Hell PSN has almost as many f2ps as pc does

  • jordanxbrookes

    “Call of Duty on PC never gets anything” Now that I got that over with, this patch should be on console by the time Nemesis is out next week.

    • wouldnt let me post as a guest

      Yes.

          • Indeed.

  • David Sync

    Reset stats? Im sorry but who is going to replay this again?

    • jordanxbrookes

      People who want longevity will.

      • TheCheeseWeel

        im pretty sure longevity requires the game to not suck

        • BotMw

          We have a winner

        • jordanxbrookes

          But if someone is very good at Ghosts, then they might want to do it again.

          • If I didn’t havesuch badass stats, I would have reset everything and went for the grind again.
            Looks like some good additions, these new indicators.

        • Sal

          Who cares, people will play it anyway

        • oh snap

        • k5berry

          Not being hostile, but there are some people who like this game. Are they in the very small minority? Yes. But some people do like it. I don’t know of anybody who likes it enough to want to reset their stats, but then again, some people get bored and just do it without really thinking. Plus, this is good for people who are really bored with the game, do like it, and are already max prestige from the mad dash to prestige max that happens at the beginning of every game

          • Every Call of Duty has their BS moments, but at least Ghosts didn’t hold people’s hands with overpowered killstreaks.

          • k5berry

            I mean the guard dog is questionable, but for the most part there haven’t been any moments where I’m like “of couuurse he’s running that”.

        • UpRiftCOD

          You suck!

        • gottabreathe

          Whoa, super edgey.

        • winner

          It only sucks if you suck…

      • Whoa longevity really? sorry mate but one of the reasons I quit playing this game was because this game doesn’t have longevity. You can have any gun you want with any kind of set up by level 10 due to the unlocking system of tokens. By level 30 you have pretty much everything unlock due to the little update they did which unlocks all the challenges among other things. Ghosts even fail at longevity…

        • NextGenNose

          lol this^ I remember when it would take Level 70 to just unlock a AK-47 in mw2. Ghosts? unlocking way too easy with the squad point system.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Even with the CoD Point system in Black Ops, you couldn’t buy the weapon unless you were a certain level, we need to unlock weapons at certain levels.

          • NextGenNose

            If only Ghosts did the same and made it more challenging.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yup, right now in Ghosts, I have over 1500 Squad Points. I could buy everything and still have some left over.

          • Psychomaggot105

            That’s it? You max prestige?I have over 5000.

          • Sniper

            I have OVER 9000!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Psychomaggot105

            You think there’s a limit?

          • Sniper

            Probably 9999. You know, on FFA private match the max kills ou can have is 99. You can get more kills, but after 99 it doesn’t show

          • Nick

            I have around 15,000 so it does go over.

          • Psychomaggot105

            I’m not sure what cod aw is going to do but I’ll use ghosts as an example. Wouldn’t be nice to take ur squad points and redeem them for dlc camos, outfits or vo’s.

          • Joe Gonzales

            tell that infinty ward,sledgehammer, and treyarch! that’s a great idea but they wouldn’t do that because they’ll lose money, i guess they will add buy camo Usd 1.99/or 50squadpoints

          • Psychomaggot105

            I think it’d be atleast 1000pts or over. Because they’d want want you to play they’re game more.

          • jordanxbrookes

            No I’m at Level 60, No Prestige.

          • Suu

            “They need to release camos for these squad points like 2000-5000 squad points for a camo, that way we’d have something to do with those extra squad points.”

        • jordanxbrookes

          Well some people want to keep the longevity of resetting and ranking up again, just because you don’t doesn’t mean others don’t.

        • PCHarry

          Ghosts is a game that everything this laid out on a plate. There’s no grind or challenge and that’s why I gave it up before last Christmas. I had about 800 squad points at one stage and could buy every weapon and attachment in the game before I even prestiged. Not only is this game appalling in many ways; it’s so simplistic and dull that the satisfaction of ranking and challenge unlocking has gone.

          • pulseimpact

            If you want to unlock all the patches and challenges then I disagree. Every weapon has challenges associated to them. I am going for every gun gold and even beyond the camo challenges there are more…

        • CGkillZ

          Yes I thought that made the ghosts to boring. I think they should go back to bo1 system

        • Guest

          No, I prefer the freedom to choose and I often use all my squad points. You have stockholm syndrome towards a restrictive leveling system.

      • NEONHAZ13

        Yeah I’m thinking about resetting as its so boring at prestige 10

      • David Sync

        If AW doesnt suck, then it wont look good on the ghost servers … if it does suck, hey destiny looks good and i know im going to be hooker on Arkham Knight

      • BQA

        Exactly My Point Man

      • Myke Fletcher

        People who want longevity are still playing COD4.

      • NEONHAZ13

        I wanna reset but if there is a reward in advanced warfare for reaching prestige ten(like the backgrounds in ghosts) wil I get it

    • Anthony Neesen

      You are right because honestly I don’t like the game and my friends hate it so why is anybody going to reset their stats because for some people it takes forever to level up

    • OldBrazy on PS4

      I would

    • Slingshot

      apparently not you… whom more than likely sucks.

      • David Sync

        Ur telling me you will? On this game? This a abomination of a game?

  • Aaron

    Reset stats? I’m afraid it’s too late for that.

  • FATHEAD661

    In all honesty it is a little too late for this. I mean, I would have appreciated the gesture 2-3 months ago when I was still semi interested in Ghosts and had just max prestiged, but with AW right around the corner, I’m pretty much done with Ghosts. And this is coming from someone who absolutely loved it in its prime.

  • Michael

    Now who in the world would wanna reset their stats when no one moves in ghost? I mean if you got the balls to do it then i ain’t stopping any of you. I think it would e frustrating and sweaty 😀

    • Ground war

      It’s called ground war

      • Michael

        Ground war is no different then not having ground war at all. If your telling me that in ground war you have people moving, then I you must be playing a different game than I am.

        • Ground war

          Yea people move in ground war on ps4

          • Michael

            People on old gen consoles neer move and i deal with it and its frustrating. So that’s why I would never reset my stats.

  • Guest Bitches

    Nerds be like…Fix the Game!
    Infinity ward be like…Fix what!?

    Tell them what to fix you retards…

    • MichiganerE

      The PC version of Ghosts is shit though.

      • Sniper

        And bo2? Does the PC version have nukejacked? Because consoles don’t.

        • NuttyTheSquirrel

          What the fuck does that even matter. I’d rather a a fucking working version than be able to play fucking Nuketown and Hijacked 24/7…

          I’d rather have a good fucking version on PC with only 2 maps.

    • GodLikeLeftNut

      it was pretty fucking obviuous what to fix lol

  • This fire burns?

    • jordanxbrookes

      Always 🙂

  • AAH OMG

    Yaaas! Reset stats! MY LIFE IS NOW COMPLETE!!!!! Hdbeeks djelsodjdbdkdorn

  • Blaine

    Hmm. Interesting. The orange hitmarker thing is a good idea, but on on know why they’d add a random thing like that so late in the life cycle. Hopefully SHG carries that over to AW though. The oracle indicator is a nice balancing factor too, but again it’s too late… Who even plays Ghosts at this point? (I actually like Ghosts but I’m on PC and literally nobody plays anymore, heard it’s dying on console as well)

    • Joe Gonzales

      yeah its dead 35,000 the most but when ghosts started to suck people went to Black Ops 2 and its soaring over 200,000 on console

      • Joe Gonzales

        just like Black ops 2 started to suck at one point it died and people switched MW3 and it soared with people online

  • Oh a Reset Stats option – another feature that Black Ops II had from launch. IW continues to amaze me at releasing things that were included as standard features in the previous title eg: core game modes, FOV adjustments, a Reset Stats option, etc, etc. – WAY to late I might add.

    • PUNK_AND_GOTH

      hell its on the console version

  • ben wills

    WAY TOO little, even more too late

    The game STILL runs HORRIBLY. There is no excuse for this. Sledgehammer coming off MW3, also a horrible port, is on thin ice with AW. They need to impress, bad. Even then day 1 is lost.

    • Guest

      Slegehammer just helped with campaign and character models. They didn’t do shit with porting the PC version or multiplayer.

      • ben wills

        Incorrect. They helped with all aspects of the game. Although I doubt they were involved with the PC port being so bad, they worked on that multiplayer.

  • Damien Anderson

    I wonder if they’ll change the menu music again?

    • Joe Gonzales

      they should add retro music menus like one would be Black Ops 1 menu music, COD 4 menu music, and etc

      • DopeAap

        So you’re saying: Do the same shit over and over and still cry that it isn’t innovative? And when it innovates you’ll go apeshit over it?

        • smayo

          Yeah because adding some nostalgic menu music to choose from completely wipes out any innovative gameplay mechanics…

          • DopeAap

            No, it would make me feel like im playing the same game from 2007….

    • pulseimpact

      They should allow you to choose between all of them in the options menu. I prefer the original theme that Ghosts shipped with.

  • J4MES

    They may as well give up on the PC version completely as they pretty much have anyway with all lousy optimisaton and other problems. The community have certainly given it up as the player count in the Multiplayer lobbies is usually south of 2,500 now and is the least played Call of Duty on PC at present. BO2 has 9,000+ at any given time and still more people play MW3. I will never buy another IW game because Ghosts is not only a poor game; the way the game is developed for PC is worse than most early access Steam titles. Shameful

  • GodLikeLeftNut

    unfortunately ive wasted 60 hours playing ghosts 🙁

    • what? you’re gonna cry about it?

      • GodLikeLeftNut

        you sir are a fine example of the cod community xD

  • Holy shet orange hitmarkers

  • Sounds good, but please have an option to turn off the orange hitmarker.

    • Keshav Bhat

      there’s no option to off it as far as I know

      • That sucks, hope they can somehow put in the option.

  • Cloud Flash

    Because orange hitmarkers are sure to improve the broken-beyond-playable state of Ghosts on PC.

    • Keshav Bhat

      🙁 i feel so bad for the experience PC players had with Ghosts. I hope AW changes things around for that community

      • Cloud Flash

        It’s honestly our fault for thinking it’d be any better – MW3 was a train wreck on PC as well, so it’s become pretty obvious that IW doesn’t care about the platform. Treyarch is usually a safe bet, though, and I hope Sledge follows their example.

  • Guest

    I hate when people complain about this game, we made this game maybe not you personally but the community, Call Of Duty listens to all the things that we didn’t like about the previous game like you guys didnt like Black Ops 2 because you had to much health and now you die 1 shot also you guys didnt like Black Ops 2 because you couldn’t really knife now you have an animated commando lunge. Me I personally like Call of Duty: Ghosts because it actually takes some sort of skill to actually try and win a gun fight and because all the guns are balanced

    • J4MES

      COD Ghosts takes no skill whatsoever. The bullet detection may be better in the game than previous ones but it has far too many other woes to even be considered average.

  • pulseimpact

    You shouldn’t be allowed to reset stats. Bad players just do it and then play cheap. I’ve seen abused by stat whores in Mw3 and BO2. It just makes it so bad players hide their past struggles and you don’t know the overall journey of a player. What they should do is penalize dashboarders…make people’s stats more honest, not less.

    • You don’t need to dashboard in Ghosts. Just leave before the game ends and the KD and loss doesn’t go against

      • pulseimpact

        What console do you play on? This is not the case for Xbox 360….at least I think. I think you are confusing it with how Titanfall works.

        • I’ve never played Titanfall.

          Xbox 360. 100% works for me and other members in my clan because we got to a 50+ win streak by leaving against teams who sat in corners with LMGs on HCKC. That’s all we play.

          • pulseimpact

            The win streak is not effected by quiting or host migration, but i think everything else does count like deaths kills including a loss added to win-loss ratio…but not the win streak. i don’t quit that often, but i’m fairly certain that’s how it works. i guess i’ll take like 10 deaths tommorow and quit and see if my k/d goes down. that’s actually kind of insane if that’s the case. i have a good k/d in ghosts over 3, but its about the same as i have always had since world at war. i can only imagine how high someone could get abusing this…

  • Bakon

    Definitely want the oracle and kill hit markers for console.

  • Underdog BO1 FTW!

    Lol it’s too late i guess? They copied the orange hitmarker from Cod: Online.
    but in cod online it’s red

  • Jay Gautreau

    when will this be out for the Xbox/PS?

    • Mitch

      Any moment, Microsoft/Sony has to approve it.

  • Slingshot

    There are people out there actually paying hackers to demote them so they can do it all over again…. not surprised they finally added it.

  • Shayne

    Why not for xbox one ?
