Treyarch has released a new game setting update for Black Ops 3 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The version number is 37.1*.21.4 (*number varies by platform).

This update fixes exploits in the game, and by Vahn’s tweet, it seems to be hinting at the Gun Game issue where players were farming Cryptokeys.

    How were they farming Cryptokeys?

    • In GG you don’t get kicked for being AFK so if you just leave your Xbox on all day and come back later you’d have a fuckton of kyrptokeys for doing literally nothing but being in the match.

    • Scott Baker

      you’d get into a game, leave it on and go about your business all day, work/school. Gun game wouldnt kick you out, so you’d earn keys. come home and you’d be key rich

    • XLKILLA

      Bro they went into a gun game match and just left there game on for days. It doesn’t kick you from the match if you end up in a match where nobody kills anyone and it lasts hours you get a ton of keys. I would join these matches and nobody would be moving I would destroy there KD ratios lol.

      • banerising

        I can’t believe I didn’t know about that, I would have had farmed my KD instead haha

        • DEMOLITION12

          nobody can see it though

        • Kobrah

          Free headshots too!

  • Good.

  • Frank Rizzo

    Fuck them. Activision will have no problem charging people for the silly things. Who cares if some 3rd grader farms cryptokeys?

    • MyKogInYourAshe

      You play Gun Game alone

      • Frank Rizzo

        You have sex alone

    • KK5

      Doesn’t mean that it doesn’t break the game! It made a whole gamemode almost unplayable!

      • Frank Rizzo

        They could care less about a broken game mode. The cryptokeys were the alone reason the game was patched.

        • KK5

          Even if it is why they hot-fixed it (not patched) it still made it impossible to play. No matter the motives, it still was worse than any overpowered guns

        • Johnathan Beckman

          Couldn’t care less*

          • Frank Rizzo

            Tell me something, how old is that pic? Its so pixelated I bet it was taken 15 years and 120lbs ago. You’re gut probably matches your “2.6 k/d.”

            K/d is an imaginary number, by the way. It won’t get you a loan, nor will it get you laid. It says more about your play style that it does about skill level.

            It might net you some fucking nerd to suck off. I am not that nerd. So please, stalk somebody else that enjoys such things.

            Nevermind, I bet thats the picture your mama gave you after daddy disappeared while getting the family some cigarettes. Shame, you really needed him.

          • Johnathan Beckman

            Gotta love the Internet tough guys ;). I’m 22 years old with an established life, family, girlfriend of 7 years and I just so happen to be better than u and as a result u get mad and throw personal insults like a true internet warrior. Don’t be mad. And please. If ur going to read my comment. Actually read it. I said 2.4;) don’t flatter me with a 2.6 but I’m trying. As well as winning every game. So don’t be mad warrior. Actually as we speak I’m talking to my dad about our football picks that we have made the final 5 in a 259 person league with potential to win $15,000. My life is pretty awesome. Internet warrior

          • Frank Rizzo

            God. Father. Warrior. Seems as though you think highly of me. Thanks douche.

            Good luck with that $15k. You sound like a sucker too. I bet some Nigerian guy who asked for your bank account number is rolling around in your EBT money right about now.

            Remember, two spaces after a period. That advice might get you promoted from the frialator.

          • Johnathan Beckman

            Lol it was nice going 1-0 vs u today 😉 GG

      • NeonPhyzics

        I just ran around and got head shots on them – I also learned the spawn points better – I knew it would be fixed, but I thought it was silly fun

        • KK5

          It’s good for those who are playing, but I hope you can agree with me that it broke the gamemode- maybe the first time in COD history?

          • NeonPhyzics

            I guess….but it is a party game – not a competitive game-mode. Yes, it took the fun out of it – so it should be fixed, but so to map glitches and spots in Infected and those are always around. I think they should spend time fixing spawns and weapon balancing instead of worring about the BONUS / party games

          • KK5

            True, but I would think that there would be a simple solution like making the player have to hit a button before entering the game, like AW

    • Kobrah

      Because I couldn’t play Gun Game any more

  • How about fixing all those gamebreaking bugs now? Seriously this feels like one of those fishy steam early access games with a shit-ton of bugs and glitches.

    • Frank Rizzo

      No shit. They throw together a patch once Actvision starts losing some precious money. But will they do the same for the dropped games, lag, and worst hit detection in COD history? Me thinks not.

      • lunator100hd .

        Lag and broken hit detection were always a part of 3arch’s cods, this never gonna change. Patches can fix litle things like farming and bugs but the core game will never be improved after release.

        • Frank Rizzo

          The spawns suck too

          • lunator100hd .

            Not too much in compared to ghosts or AW.

          • Frank Rizzo

            Ghosts spawns were bad upon release, but they did patch them and it improved a little. Oddly whenever somebody did a kem strike, they went right back to pre patch spawns.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            My aim sucks. IDK if it’s the DS4, but I always have stupid deaths where I shoot to the side and completely miss. Might be the enemies strafing, but wow. And then there are the embarrassing deaths, like dying whilst wallrunning.

          • spartanelite

            I mean it is a shitty control overall

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It’s one of the best controllers I’ve ever used and find it to be better than Xbone’s and Wii U’s Pro controller. There’s a mistake that I make with the sticks.

          • spartanelite

            No its just bad I low quality and gimmicky and has a bad battery life

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It’s not low quality nor gimmicky lol. Who plays video games for 6 hours? No grown man. But, sure, the battery life is inexcusable, but other than that, I find it much better than Xbone’s. At least it doesn’t use AA batteries. One of the best controllers I’ve ever used. I find it ignorant when the few gamers that do do it call it bad.

          • SnaffleWaffle

            Wow. This might be a first. A CoD player admitting that something is due to his own fault!

            Printscreen this and frame it up Keshav.

            You’d be hard done to find another.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Lol! TTK might be involved, but it’s simply just not a CoD game that I’m very good at, and it’s hard to have fun on it.

        • Deadly Ed

          They can fix the terrible revenge spawning though. Haven’t they learned from BO2?
          I would rather spawn in a quiet corner on the map then and it take 10 seconds to get back into the fight, then right back in the action, and get killed before i even know where i am.

          • KK5

            So true, I don’t care that much about a rusher that killed me, if a camper kills me, I will just used a perfectly thrown grenade to clear the trouble

          • Smayo

            Revenge spawns…it ruined mw3 until halfway January, bo2 until somewhere December, you think they would’ve learned a thing of two by now…

            Same goes for the ridiculous viewkick/flinch, I can’t even count the times I lost a gunfight because of it

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Never noticed the flinch. It should be a mutual thing (both opponents must be flinched). My issue is with the health regeneration on all modes (Campaign, Nightmares, Zombies, and Multiplayer). And the TTK (but it makes the other modes like Campaign and Zombies more fun, though).

          • Smayo

            Over the years of playing CoD I “teached” myself to aim upper chest to head to get an edge over my opponent, now with this heavy flinch/VK and no way to counter it (toughness) more then once I hit him twice and the rest of my shots go over his head because he managed to get a hit on me causing me to flinch all the way up, and because I have to center my aim again I’m in a disadvantage from that moment and 9 out of 10 I lose the gun fight, it’s highly frustrating to lose gun battles like that.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            That’s why I don’t like BO3 as much as I should. I think they fucked up the TTK. It had potential.

          • Smayo

            Yeah, likewise here, removal of the flinch, a slight adjustment to the TTK and a better netcoding/hit detection would make it a whole of a lot more enjoyable

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It should have been BO2 with tweaks and upgrades here or there. Now it’s like Advanced Warfare, and it’s pretty annoying.

          • Smayo

            Agree on that, I said it before on a different article here, bo3 would be 10 times better if it had the classical CoD movement, not saying bo3 is bad, but I’m getting tired of the futuristic theme

          • Guywithbrains

            That moment in team deathmatch when your teammates rush to other spawn and flip spawns too quickly. That happens too often when I am ALONE on killstreak back at my spawn.

          • DEMOLITION12

            what were you doing in the back of your spawn?

          • Guywithbrains

            Match started and I was sniping and getting my bloodthirsty medals for new camouflage. After 2 kills I found out all my teammates rushed to enemy spawn and then some enemy came with the most overpowered weapon in the game and killed me.

            You probably know how hard bloodthirsty medals are for snipers…

            ^ In addition I prefer Modern Warfare 3 weapon level system. That isn’t so much grinding as in Black Ops 3.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Modern Warfare 3 is the worst CoD game. I prefer BO3’s weapon levelling. Anyway, the snipers in Black Ops 3 are pretty annoying. I’d want a Drakon nerf if only it wasn’t good in Zombies.

          • LovekillerX

            Those headshot challenges… I have to achieve 100 headshots and other challenges just to get one golden weapon… if I want a diamond camouflage I have to do almost 900 headshots to achieve that and that is just one type of weapon. Do the same for SMGs, shotguns, LMGs and secondaries… I wonder how much people play that got master prestige, dark matter camo and hero armor already. I play a lot and I have only three golden weapons.

          • spartanelite

            Almost have hero challenges,I have diamond smgs,I do both at the same time since I’m barley 3rd prestige

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Obviously this game was intended to have longevity. I see myself playing this for 3 years. I can take the insanity, as long as I never touch another Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer game again.

          • LostInPasta

            Well i got my diamond ar’s and i truly felt like i earned them. MW3 was just play time for gold guns.

      • Johnathan Beckman

        Worst hit detection in Cod History. Hahahaha ur an idiot. It’s better than both Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 2

        • Frank Rizzo

          You’re 0-1 on comments.

          • Johnathan Beckman

            And ur probably just bad at the game. If u think black ops 3 has the worst hit detection ur lost

          • LovekillerX

            So you must suck in AW and BO2 then? You pretty much shot yourself in the leg.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Those who say stupid crap like “you just suck at it” is just a strawman excuse. I wonder if they’d say the same thing to reviewers? Was the Fighter Within such an awful travesty ‘because they sucked at it’? Or because they aren’t good at Kinect controls? We gamers can be so stupid, every single one of us.

          • Johnathan Beckman

            lol if having a 2.0 in every call of duty since modern warfare 2 means I’m bad than ya. I’m bad 😉

          • GinsuVictim

            K/D means nothing.
            (GinsuVictim has disconnected)

          • Johnathan Beckman

            Ya to a point it doesn’t. But the difference between a 2.40 and 1.0. Is significant

          • GinsuVictim

            Out of context, it means shit. Knowing whether it was legitimately earned is always in question.

          • Johnathan Beckman

            Which is also true. But how can u question someone who has 23,000 kills right now and a 4.5 W/L? Not to mention 3,000 of those kills in Arena so which btw has no one good in it just trying to state a fact. Sry I don’t play gun game and team deathmatch. I play Hardpoint usually in which my average time is 127 in hill so it’s not like I’m sitting outside hill

          • GinsuVictim

            You gonna upload a picture of your dick and a ruler next?

          • Johnathan Beckman

            I played pretty well tonight. R u proud?

          • CoDforever

            AW and Bo2 had just as shit hit detection as bo3

          • Frank Rizzo

            0-2

          • Frank Rizzo

            Your kd in comments is negative

          • Johnathan Beckman

            My kd in comments? Lol. Well my 2.40 kd in game xx explicitt with 4.5 w/l might keep me sleeping at night n u mad

          • Frank Rizzo

            Nope. Just entertained by you. Is that your mouth in the hook?

          • Johnathan Beckman

            Ehhh that was kinda 0-1 Forum God. If u legitimately think BOps 3 has the worst hit registration than more power to u. But being somehow whose played more than 99.99999999% of the world it’s safe for my opinion to say that is incorrect. But if I were u I would go back to the attempted personal weak shots. It’s all ur good for. They kinda of registered on me like ur shots in Blops3. Bad

          • Frank Rizzo

            *you

          • Johnathan Beckman

            Hold on. Maybe u n me can have a TLC WWE match since u seem to be so interested in something that’s uhhhhh fake? GG

          • Frank Rizzo

            You should take a similar interest in grammar.

          • Johnathan Beckman

            I’ll look into it dad. Meanwhile, I’ll be preparing for Wrestlemania for my match vs u. U u u u u u u

          • Frank Rizzo

            I am not your dad. Don’t quit looking for him though. I’m sure he will return someday 🙁

          • Johnathan Beckman

            Poor guy. He must need some milk

          • CoDforever

            Hes right

      • LovekillerX

        Hit detection is still bad but now I can play domination without losing my nerves with constant warping and “connection interrupted” on my screen.

  • jordanxbrookes

    So err, how about that Ghosts 2 INTEL? Jk ;P

    • CAMPING_CAMPER88

      I can’t wait for Ghosts 2!

      • jordanxbrookes

        I’m happy that IW are next and look forward to what they bring (Hopefully no more future).

        • CAMPING_CAMPER88

          The single player story strongly hints that there will be Ghosts 2. Kidding aside, I hope it will be more in line with BO2 rather than Ghosts 1.

          • AbeTheMudokon

            That is stupid though, if it stays in-line with Ghosts 1 then it can carry on with it’s cliffhanger ending. If it switches over to being in-line with BO2 then the story is going to make piss all sense and going to be jumping all over the place.

          • You mean thay cliffhanger ending where we shot Roruke in the heart and he winds up kidnapping our character?

          • AbeTheMudokon

            Yeah, that cliffhanger

          • Paul

            If the next game is Ghosts 2 I’m playing BO3 till aw2 comes out

          • CAMPING_CAMPER88

            You’re going to miss out the extreme camping, man.

      • RobMelchor

        Yeah, Ghost campain mode was actually pretty good. Multi Player was not so great, the maps were huge

    • MichiganerE

      Fuck that, I want AW 2, BO4 and Ghosts 3 intel.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Don’t forget that MW6 INTEL bruh.

        • big_larry

          there hasn’t even been a MW4 or MW5 yet tho

      • lunator100hd .

        ghosts 4?

        • MichiganerE

          Yes, Ghosts 3 won’t happen.

          • lunator100hd .

            Yeah, that makes sense.

          • MichiganerE

            Yeah, because 3 is too mainstream (GABEN doesn’t understand it), they decided to skip all the way to 4.

        • jordanxbrookes

          IW pull a Windows you see.

    • Bibical got that.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Fuck that guy.

        • My feelings exactly.

        • Einstein law

          You fancy that dont ya lol

      • Keshav Bhat

        oh

    • Keshav Bhat

      ¯_(ツ)_/¯

      • KK5

        That wonderful sass

    • LostInPasta

      Obviously the next ones going to be called Call of Duty. Like need for speed did.

      • Keshav Bhat

        u wot m8

      • jordanxbrookes

        Believe it or not I have a video planned about this.

      • RobMelchor

        True

  • Kill Denied

    How about fixing the Vesper instead?

    • lunator100hd .

      Whats your problem with the vesper?

      • Mellow

        Its overpowered. Really overpowered.

        • lunator100hd .

          Only up close, and tbh pharo is even stronger up close.

        • Deadly Ed

          HAHA, no it isnt! you cant hit the side of a barn door at medium to long range, and when you do it takes about 5-6 bullets to kill. Plus your whole mag is gone in about 2 seconds, meaning you have to run extended mags, fast mags and scavenger to go on any decent run with it.

          There is only one OP gun atm and that’s the Gorgon.

  • Show N Prove

    Thank god, stuff like that ruins the game

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      How does it “ruin the game”, if what’s being farmed is entirely optional and cosmetic? Oh boy, I’m exploiting Cryptokeys for that damn Storm camo! What a piece of shit! Don’t be that guy! The Gorgon is perfectly fine!

      • GinsuVictim

        It ruins the game when you go in expecting a match and everyone is AFK. I like Gun Game for a challenge, not easy kills.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Ah, I should have looked up what the exploit was instead of being ignorant. I thought they were actually playing. I guess that wasn’t the case?

          • GinsuVictim

            Just turn it on, go to Gun Game, and leave the system running. It wouldn’t kick for inactivity and they just farmed keys all day/night.

      • Show N Prove

        People can boost off of the afk players and take advantages of leveling up and completing challenges when those challenges and levels should be earned, unless you like doing stuff the cheap/easy way.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Yeah, I can see the problem after it was explained by someone else. Never did the exploit.

  • I don’t get how people are going to say fixing Cryptokey farming wasn’t needed or wasn’t a game breaking issue… Dudes, it made an entire game mode literally unplayable. That’s more broken than some occasional connection issues or a weapon’s fire rate being “OP”… It literally broke an entire game mode lol.

    • lunator100hd .

      Many ppl like to exploit the game, its fun for them.

    • Stif Meister

      Free headshots, tho.

      • spartanelite

        What was the exploit exactly?

        • Kobrah

          Go AFK in gun game while you’re at work/school/asleep or when ever and you won’t get booted and will earn shit tons of Cryptokeys. About 3/4 of each lobby was AFK in that game mode

          • Dregomz

            doesn’t work i get kicked for afk

          • Kobrah

            That’s because they have fixed it now

  • codecell756

    I was exploiting the exploiters by farming headshots trolololol

    • NeonPhyzics

      yeah – I did a few myself – I also used it to learn FFA spawn points and practice with different guns…oh well – back to pubs

      • codecell756

        Yeah I have FFA breach spawns memorised for sure lol

        • GinsuVictim

          They’re horrible.

          • Mr erwin

            Did you already get your PS 4 ?

          • GinsuVictim

            No, on PS3 (for free), so it’s even worse. It’s mostly a broken mess. Seeing the PS4 version in action REALLY makes me want to get one sooner than I thought.

          • madshooterguy

            i was on ps3 last year for aw and decided to upgrade this year and i noticed a difference almost instantly

          • angelica elkins

            Same here. AW on ps4 looks 100times different than on ps3. To be honest i can not play AW on tha 4 cuz im not used to it cause evrything looks so different, more detailed.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You know you want to. No I’m just kidding, advertising for a console is the most fanboy thing to do. I’m much rather interested in what games you like, to see if I’d recommend a PS4 for you sooner rather than later.

          • GinsuVictim

            Advertising for a console? I play all consoles. I just stated that would be the system I’d get first. I plan on picking up a One later on.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I wasn’t talking about you, I was speaking in a general sense.

          • Mr erwin

            Agreed I have it now on PS 4. I hate it on PS 3 with almost each game lost connection. But it was playable sometimes and have learned the maps. More fun is that they dont patch anything on last gen. Loved the m8 AR on PS 3

          • YoungMurf

            Last gen really hasn’t got shit on current gen tbh. I’m currently using the PS4 and it runs 60 fps and is the best looking CoD I have ever seen.

          • GinsuVictim

            “Last gen really hasn’t got shit on current gen tbh.”
            No one would ever claim it does.

          • YoungMurf

            I was more or less saying you should defo get one sooner rather than later, wasn’t trying to be captain obvious.

          • AbeTheMudokon

            Current gen (all systems) are struggling to reach 60FPS, so you can’t say last gen hasn’t got shit when it can reach 60FPS.

            I’m stating that Black Ops 3 runs a smooth 60 fps on PS4, not generalising all the games to this. Funny you say that when Black Ops 3 runs at only 30 fps on last gen :-S

          • XLKILLA

            BO3 has no issues reaching 60 FPS buddy and BO3 runs at 30 FPS on last gen consoles lmfao idiot.

          • GinsuVictim

            BO3 on last gen actually gets close to 60 now. It was running about 40-45 before patches, but now it’s between 45-60 depending on the map.

          • AbeTheMudokon

            Treyarch said that all consoles and systems struggle 60FPS and last gen runs BETWEEN 60-30FPS most of the time staying at 60FPS so before you argue with me, go and learn some shit. Idiot

          • XLKILLA

            Last gen just needs to go away.

    • XLKILLA

      Same here they want to destroy there stats fine with me. They where going like 0-200 a match lol we would just melee them lol and get headshots. We can’t get in trouble for idiots just standing there lol

  • GinsuVictim

    I found people doing this on PS3 where there are no keys. lol

    • TheDemonOfHate

      Oh no, I want to pray.

  • Stefan Lang

    Tbh I tried the key thing out last night for about and hour and only got 11 keys. You can get more than that in 2 games. Its useless

    • ArtisanKnight

      But you have to work for the keys. Meanwhile the afkers do nothing for them.

    • Kobrah

      People just left it going while they were at work/school/asleep

  • Ratboy

    I was going around playing gun game. I had a full game of afkers. Went on a 84 kill streak!

    • ArtisanKnight

      I just went on a 296 kill streak. I was the only one moving for a legit 40 matches. Got a total of like 2000 kills and 0 deaths

      • ArtisanKnight

        But….back to the normal gameplay now lol

        • spartanelite

          Is it patched?

          • ArtisanKnight

            Well, from what I saw,, players get kicked now, but only at the end of the match, so it’s still not completely fixed. Atleast for the players like me, who play for headshots and infinite melee kills.

      • Ratboy

        Solid!

        • ArtisanKnight

          I got my work done in gun game, I don’t care if it’s patched

  • Brad of Duty

    This never worked for me on xbox one there is no way to stop the console form auto shutting off

    • FazalGaming

      Reset your Xbox One

  • burrgee

    “Patches exploits that ruin other people’s fun. Don’t be that guy. Nobody likes that guy.” Says Vahn…. Well don’t put an exploit that you clearly already knew about before the game was released in the game, I mean how stupid can they be not to kick someone if they are idle for to long.

    • GinsuVictim

      Gun Game automatically put you into the game with the default class. You get kicked if you haven’t selected a class normally, but that wasn’t an option in Gun Game.

      • burrgee

        Why did it take them so long to fix it? This shouldn’t have even been an issue to start with, but anyway i’m glad it’s fixed i love gun game.

  • ItzSikh

    what do you mean nobody likes that guy, everyone loved me on a SnD game by exploiting

  • Saw Fant

    All the fixes yet they put no effort into making a dolly cam for theater smh

    • Siftblade

      I think stopping game-breaking exploits is a bit more important than a dolly cam.

  • Dr. Salim

    Yo Treyarch, can we get a Christmas themed WMD map?

    • FazalGaming

      YESSSS

    • DEMOLITION12

      good luck getting that through the christian haters at activision lol

  • Franco

    Does anyone nows if the giant is going to be available to buy like a DLC, just like nuketown zombies on BOII?

    • FazalGaming

      You get the Giant when you purchase the Season Pass.

    • YoungMurf

      I would say Activision will make ‘The Giant’ available as a separate purchase in the near future.

  • RdJokr

    People’s thirst for Cryptokeys will only fuel Activision’s decision to sell them in the near future. Calling it now people, 100 Cryptokeys for only $1.99! Buy 3 Cryptokey packs, get a guaranteed Legendary/Epic item from your supply drop!

    (Which may or may not be a duplicate).

    • Michael Staunton

      Meh, i’d put change in a jar and save up some spare money and buy it then, not that bad. Guarenteed legendary epic I wouldn’t buy, i’d rather have low chances and get something that’s actually rare

  • lol. did they patch Gun Game? not gonna lie, I used the AFK people to get a nuclear.

  • Abhishek Jain

    Thunder wish came true

  • XLKILLA

    Same here they want to destroys there stats for cosmetic items not my fault lol.

  • Ryumoau

    I’m glad they are doing something about the cryptokey farming. I swear people are so freaking lazy and impatient. :/

  • R3N

    Fix the sentry gun glitch!: https://youtu.be/nlWkzHyOUeg

    • Shantzonpoint

      Yes I get this all the time!

  • Trinityvitaliaty

    I dont understand.How was someone being afk an exploit. I know something was wrong in gun game.Maybe gun game didnt have the ability to time u out?

  • [EV] BLISS

    Tbh I think they need to nerf the sentry gun! That thing can shoot through walls on nuketown lol -_-

  • mjm0086

    Well the nerf on the Razorback was also a waste…just saying…Thanks for ruining this SMG !
