    Glad they’re finally getting around to fixing Domination spawns.

  • Hoss

    Maybe now I won’t have to watch the back of C dom on sovereign when we are trading home flags. That got so annoying when they would be spawning A and C at the same time.

    I’m glad 4096 is getting fixed. I haven’t been able to play Ghosts at all because of it.


    Patch notes are one of my favourite articles in Charlie Intel. Always nice to hear things getting better 🙂

    Thank god they fixed the 4096 error, I want this update now on my PS4.
    Infinty Ward should of fixed the 4096 error in the first month, I guess they were making terrible camos and overpriced skins. Vonderhaaaaaar!

    • MichiganerE

      It’s all Vonderhaar’s fault!

      • Bob Mit

        He doesn’t even work at Infinity Ward, but some how it is his fault. lol

    “Added killcam for night owl deaths…” What?!?! Since when can the night owl kill you?

    • TheLegacyofJeremy

      When u throw a c4 at it when u are close

      • Michael

        Ah okay now that makes more sense.

        • Fading Lee

          It shoots at all projectiles, and if you are close enough it well hit you too… like the trophy systems

  • ………….

    I don’t like Ghosts as much as Bo2 but at least they’re trying to fix it.

    Im on ps3 and it does suck I have to wait a week for the mtar nerf but hey at least its finally nerfed

  • Bmeowmix

    MTAR OP? Let’s lower the headshot multiplier! Yeah, that will definitly negate the long range damage and low recoil.

  • Brandon Peters

    How do you get a killcam with a night owl

  • Run N Gunning Camper

    I’m glad they nerfed that overpowered rusher’s crutch. They should nerf it even more and nerf it to the same level when they nerfed the MSBS.
