A new Game Settings Update for Black Ops 3 has gone live on PS4 and Xbox One and has added the ability for players to access the Black Market from pre-game lobbies in multiplayer.

This new feature was in fact mentioned in the patch notes for the latest update, but it has now just gone live in-game.

Players are able to acquire new Supply Drops in pre-game lobbies now. Here’s some clarification from the patch notes in regards to opening a drop when a match starts:

  • If Players are in the process of opening a Supply Drop as a match begins, the menu screen will close but content is still awarded. Players can view items earned through Supply Drops from the Recently Acquired menu option in the Black Market.

In addition to that, the new settings change included:

  • Hellstrom and Wraith Scorestreaks buffed
  • Players can be killed by their own scorestreak
  • Fixes for Medals/Challenges not tracking certain progress
  • Fixes in Black Market for looping sounds
  • Fixes for in-game store images and language
  • Brass Knuckles taunts FX has been added

    I wish they would buff the Weevil

    • CoDforever

      That gun was never meant to have a high fire rate or increased damage. The advantages of using that weapon compared to other weapons is the magazine size and low recoil.

      Leave it the way it is

      • Scott

        Do you think they need to increase the fire rate on the M8A7? I know they just nerfed the M8A7 fire rate , but to me the gun has become very inconsistent with me. It feels very hit or miss.

        • CoDforever

          I thinks it perfect the way it is now. It was on the verge of being flat out OP when they buffed it but now its a high skill, high reward weapon which is what it should be

  • ScOott

    Keshav has left his psn in picture lol.. let’s spam him :D..

    • Tuby

      Haha lol give him sweg for that. Maybe he needs some friends online…

    • Keshav Bhat

      I’ve never hidden my PSN before lol.

      • ScOott

        U ever play with anyone on here?

      • jordanxbrookes

        When I get my PS4 next month, we should play. I don’t mind carrying 😉

        • MichiganerE

          You’re also buying BO3 on PS4?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yeah, but I want to get The Last of Us Remastered before anything. It’s something I’ve always wanted to play.

          • MichiganerE

            Maybe i’ll get the PS4 bundle?

          • ScOott

            U should give until dawn a go Aswell..

          • jordanxbrookes

            Might pick it up. Heard it’s really good.

          • CoDforever

            that game literally shit on everything telltale ever made since walking dead season 1 imo. Until dawn was a new benchmark in the point in click/story driven choice games which was previously held by Walking dead season 1.

          • ScOott

            Yh it’s got a bit more about it than ur standered point and click, to put in that bracket is kind of not doing it justice Imo.. I really hope it gets a sequel I’m not sure how gamers reacted to it, hope it did well enough sale wise to warrant another one..

          • CoDforever

            Dont forget the amazing graphics and Mo cap especially compared to telltales god awful engine

          • Thomas the Tank(no)swag

            The Last of us is a Great game as long as you haven’t spoiled the story for yourself by now.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I only know what happens at the beginning, that’s about it.

          • CoDforever

            The story isnt even good its extremely cliche and unoriginal.

            The part that really stands about the game is the characters and their performances, you’ll definitely be mind blown with those

          • jordanxbrookes

            Well I know it’s one of the best games of all time, that’s gotta be something.

          • Drank Bleach

            I just picked up a ps4 last month (Uncharted bundle for $299 woot woot) and just like you I wanted to play TLOU, played a little of it and it’s really good so far, don’t pay mind to Codforever or anyone, play the game soon as you get the ps4.

          • CoDforever

            Wtf the story isnt even that good

          • Thomas the Tank(no)swag

            The story is great and the only reason the game is so highly rated, the actual gameplay is mediocre at best.

          • CoDforever

            The story was meh and unoriginal, but those tense moments, well acted performances and exceptional execution of the story (mainly the prologue) were the reasons why its so highly rated.

            The game is one of the greatest games of all time but you’d be lying to yourself if you didnt see that ending a million times in other zombies stories already.

          • The7Reaper

            Amazing game, and the Multiplayer in The Last of Us is pretty good too slower paced but still fun

        • Keshav Bhat

          Sure! Feel free to add me & message when you get it. I don’t play often once college semester starts up again in mid-Jan, but I will be on a lot the next several weeks.

          • jordanxbrookes

            That’s fine. Would be nice to play with you 🙂

        • Mr codman1976

          Booooo Xbox for life lol

          • XboxISdead

            Xbox is such trash who is there right mind would spend money on a system that runs 900p???? oH wait………..

          • Mr codman1976

            well I like it so nah nah nah

    • TheDemonOfHate

      I can’t. Im on Nintendo but can you do it for me duddy?

  • Guywithbrains

    Good job for listening us. Not implying that others don’t do it but it is the most noticeable this year.

  • YoungMurf

    Yesssaa! Didn’t like having to back out of lobbies to access the black market so this is a great addition.

  • Bob

    Does anyone know if this fixes specialist armor? I have gotten many double kills while vision pulse was engaged and I still have 0/2 for the armor.

    • wimko

      you need to make the duouble kill without 1 kill inbetween the kill feed.

      • Bob

        I’m pretty sure I did that before, but I’ll try again. I know I killed people that were lined up, so I should’ve got at least one.

        • TheSkrillexKill

          You need to kill 2 enemies almost at the same time while the ability is active. You should also get the medal saying “x2”

          • Bob

            Do you mean the double kill medal? I have gotten almost every kind of double kill trying to get this armor. I watched theater and I got the double kill medals while they were still lit up if that’s what you mean. I have no problems getting any other specialists armor.

          • TheSkrillexKill

            No, you have to get the medal of getting kills while the ability is active saying “x2”, not the double kill one.

          • Bob

            I tried using it, but i couldn’t see it saying x2 while in use.

  • FoxyTheDankPirate

    Ahoi m8 a new fox has apeared in town

    • ScOott

      I know who u r, the new name and picture is a million times better lol *thumbs up*

  • jordanxbrookes

    THEY BUFFED THE HELLSTORM!!? Please tell me it’s actually good like the Beta?

    • CoDforever

      Its pretty good im using it atm Its more like bo2 hellstorm

      the beta hellstorm was actually OP imo

      • Mario Rivera

        it wasnt OP, it was just a worthwhile streak. increasing the cost to 800 was a reasonable enough nerf, they didnt have to make it super inconsistent on top of that. The cod community uses the term ”OP” way too much

        • CoDforever

          getting more kills than the amount of kills to get it is a little too OP imo

          • ItzSikh

            well that is the point of a streak

          • Bob

            So, you killed 9 people with a single hellstorm? That’s amazing

          • CoDforever

            obviously that was a bit of exaggeration but you get what I mean.

      • jordanxbrookes

        That’s good then. If anything needed buffing it was the Hellstorm.

      • Peter Griffin

        Absolutely. The Hellstorm on the beta was insane. Cheap to earn and most of the times, you could kill at least 2 enemies to 5 without even aiming, and the entire team if you were just a bit lucky on the respawn timing.
        In stock game the hellstorm became really meh, as killing more than two people with it became pretty hard, making it only useful on a couple objective gamemodes.
        It needed a buff because the Lightning Strike was much more powerful in almost every situation, and is cheaper.

    • Tuby

      Its good now. Finally the fixed it

  • CoDforever

    They buffed the hellstorm again! thats how you they are listening

  • Stefan Lang

    They’re on a roll with this game man. I’m loving it.

      Why the fuck do you always put quotes on your damn comments?

  • lunator100hd .

    Lighting strike is still bad tho.

    • Hunter

      Idk I have mixed feelings about it. Some matches it won’t get me any kills and some games it will. But when I used it today in the morning I got 4 kills from it.

  • Scott

    I’m impressed that Treyarch is constantly updating the game. Still needs a lot of work but at least their listening to the community to help improve this game.

  • Shantzonpoint

    I really like all the changes in the menus. However, since the last patch the game has played like crap on both consoles for me. It’s like I’m constantly fighting the aim assist to kill people. It’s pushing me off target. It was never consistently this bad before. Am I crazy or has anybody else struggled since the update?

  • Mick

    “Players can be killed be their own Scorestreak.” :/

    • RdJokr

      Remind me never to call in the Rolling Thunder then…

      • Mick

        Lol. I can’t tell you the amount of times my own Wraith and Hardened Sentry killed me. Such a dumb way to die.

  • shawn

    They removed chaos moshpit .

  • There is one little (and I mean minute) annoyance with BO3 on Xbox one. The create a class and specialist have that green tab that indicates a new unlock but I can’t seem to make it go away. I’ve hovered through all my unlocks and there is nothing new but the tab is there. Is it like a secret unlock I haven’t found, is it lack of xbox support, or am I just being stupid?

    • The green arrow next to the specialist could mean that you have a new unlock for a specialist that’s locked. It could also be the fact that the transmission logs for specialists you’ve completed are concidered “green arrow type” of newly unlocked content. I have no idea about the create-a-class one. Make sure you are not missing the wildcards menu as I did so at some point ^^”

    • Bmeowmix

      If you haven’t already, hover over all of the Black Market options, even if you haven’t unlocked them

  • imBATMAN

    nice

  • Chris Theart

    I have this problem with my NAT type staying strict and because of that i cant even play with my friends or anything. If anyone were to be kind enough to help me with port fowarding via skype that would be very appreciated.

  • Myth

    Yet they have yet to fix Hero challenges….. Yay.

  • djml9

    I’m so glad they fixed the aiming with snipers. Default stock functionality nade them unsusable for me before.

  • Eddie Tupy

    Hellstorm needed a buff badly, i couldnt even get any kills with it on Nuketown….against bots!!

  • Ghost

    You shouldn’t die by your AI streaks!

  • Shantzonpoint

    Does this mean you have to run cold blooded if you put up talon or put a cerberus in auto mode? …….. 😛

    • lunator100hd .

      Of course not
