    Much fixes. Such wow. Great work.


      severe autism

  • jordanxbrookes

    Great. The connection is mostly fixed, the map exploits are now fixed, just need to some buffs/nerfs and a huge overhaul with the spawn system and this game should be good to go.

    • Fracture

      You forget about Challenges still being reset.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Well I’m not prestiging so that doesn’t bother me πŸ˜›

        • HenryDF

          Why no prestiging?

          • jordanxbrookes

            There isn’t a need to prestige which is a good thing. Means I can have everything unlocked without the need to grind.

          • HenryDF

            It’s not a grind, it’s a good challenge. Game gets boring when everything’s in front of you.

          • Anthony

            I disagree. But I might prestige once the issues are all fixed.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Not really, unless you like to constantly progress. I’m level 50 and I’m still enjoying earning my attachments and camos and just trying out different classes etc. Besides, I’ve already prestiged enough times in previous CoDs across different accounts, and to me it can be a grind.

    • Bdotson1984

      Speak for yourself, strangely enough things are much worse for me post patch.. I get more hit markers than kills, and seems like I am always 1-2 seconds behind the enemy. And please tell me why am I playing with people in CA when I live in Cincinnati, OH

      • Same. I am always getting nothing but hit markers now. I have put an entire HBRa3 clip into a guy and the hit markers never stopped but he turned around and killed me in 3 shot. Has happened so many time

      • jordanxbrookes

        You are playing with people in California because the game uses SBMM rather than basing everything off connection. I’m playing on XB1 and the connection post-patch has been a lot better. But I do agree that SBMM has got to go.

        • Bdotson1984

          I am on XB1, and my connection has been so bad since the patch. I have actually shelved the game for now. And I won’t probably pick it up again. Which is a shame because I love it when it runs properly. But I have become a bigger fan of BF4 over the last year, Ghosts contributed to that. Dedicated servers would of fixed the majority of problems with this game. It was refreshing to play BF4 on dedis last night and to get kills when I was shooting people..

          I now know 4-5 other people that have sworn off COD till it goes to dedis… Which it probably never will.

    • Can’t forget supply drops. I got about 5 of them today. No new weapon variants, no new clothing. Just litteraly the same things I allready had and a couple of those rapid supply things, never got a drop when it was on, and they practically are useless. I am really done with this game for a really, really long while.

    • Anvil

      That and put in Gun Game. πŸ˜›

  • Now the gun patch because I wan’t to play Advanced Warfare not….

    • BALance the BAL!

      • jordanxbrookes

        More like buff the other weapons so it can compete with the Bal.

        • YES!! exactly what i’m trying to say <3

        • Sure, why not. Buff SMGs please SHG~

          • jordanxbrookes

            SMGs DEFINITELY need buffing.

        • Agreed 100%

        • BAZARAZ

          If you make all the weapons on par with the BAL the TTk i gonna be worse than Ghosts.
          I say nerf the BAL but still buff the SMGs

          • Carrisi


          • jordanxbrookes

            By compete with the Bal, I meant make SOME weapons be able to compete with the Bal. TTK and Damage output are different things.

        • spartanelite

          Or just nerf the Bal that would basically be the same thing

      • AstroCyborg

        the bal is balanced not their fault your bad

        • Huh? I myself use it since everyone else uses it and do excellent with it. I’ll ditch it once SMGs get a buff.

          • MrGladiator20

            Kf5 Advanced rifling, stock, foregrip. Also Asm1 Speakeasy advanced rifling, foregrip. You will thank me later…

          • AstroCyborg

            exactly if you want to do well with an smg use it like a smg not an ar

          • FallenAzen

            SMGs dont need a damn buff..

    • Bal of Duty Advanced Rooftops

      • Γ§Δ§ΞΉΔ‘Ρ”ΙΎΓ₯β„’

        that was clever

      • +42 internets for that

    • Next april they’ll patch me in

    • Rorke File

      They have to buff the smg’s and not nerf the BAL , in b02 they patched the pdw and it went down to shit.

      • Louis

        Yeah that’s what I’m afraid of. There’s no point nerfing the bal to the point it’s unuseable just lile the pdw from bo2. It just takes away content (in terms of a gun) away from the game.

        • InstantHawk

          What are you talking about? The PDW is still good

          • Rorke File

            There was added more recoil and reload speed was increased.

          • Louis

            Not when it was first patched it wasn’t. It was unuseable. I haven’t played bo2 in a while so don’t know what it’s like now.

        • Rorke File

          I hope they see this comment section

      • AstroCyborg

        the smgs are great you gotta get close with them its not ghosts buddy

        • Rorke File

          Why people than complain ?

          • Jack Meoff

            Because it is cod they complain about everything

          • AstroCyborg

            because people want to use them like an ar

    • meow

      tbh i dono why they buffed it after beta anyway :/

    • Bmeowmix

      Nerf the BAL, buff SMGs and HGs

    • God damnit that’s hilarious!

  • Stealth_Valtsu

    Now you just ruined the job of a lot of glitch youtubers πŸ˜›

  • Great! Will miss getting free kills on Horizon though, lol.

  • ScOott

    What about fixing the camos like the last patch was ment to do πŸ™

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Fixed on PS4, PC and XB1. Not sure about old-gen.

      • ScOott

        I’m on xbox one I’ve seen so many people say it still resets your royalty camo challenge still ? I haven’t prestige because of it? So your saying the update actually worked ?

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          There was a full reddit thread about some guy testing it after the patch and said it worked, as did many others in the thread. It resets all challenges except camo and mastery related things. That means calling card progress will still reset. But yeah, the camo stuff should be fixed.

          • ScOott

            Thankyou !!! I just prestiged I would of been stuck at level 50 for years! Thankyou thankyou !

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Lol no problem.

  • Guest

    Looks like PC gamers are getting ignored again

    • GinsuVictim

      Meanwhile I’m on 360 wondering WHEN?!?

      • Primey_

        The article says nothing about PC

        • GinsuVictim

          Ah, I see that now.

        • Keshav Bhat

          Stay tuned for updates.

    • UnforseenSin

      are you serious lol you get last 2 updates first and xbox one got them last and this one time we get it first you PC pussies bitch lmfao fucken loser

      • Primey_

        Grow up kid. SHG had nothing to do with pc getting the patches before xbox. They all went out to the platforms at the same time, we got it quicker because we don’t need to wait for some other company (Microsoft or Sony) to test them. You can blame microsoft for making you wait for patches because their Q&A takes ages.

        • UnforseenSin

          this little boy is salty LOL

          • Primey_


    • Michael

      If anything 360 and ps3 are the ones that are being neglected and ignored the most. We didn’t even get the camo adjustments in the most recent update. It’s pissing me off because I wanna prestige but I don’t wanna loose my camo progress.

    • Duke of hazard

      Okay, sure. Lets strictly focus on the one time PC didn’t get updates first so we can complain about how they “don’t care about us”.

      • Primey_

        I’m not just talking about this one time. They’ve ignored us in the past by not answering our questions. For this update they could have said why we’re not getting it right now except they forgot we exist

  • They need to fix HC Mode, so like teammates are not able to kill you and you get the death on your K/D. The teammate that shot you should get either thrown out the game, get the death on his K/D, or at least make it like Ghost that bullets ricochet back to the person firing at you from your team.

    • Anthony

      Anything but Ricochet. Just no.

    • SotaGamer

      I would rather accidently kill a teammate that runs in front of me, than getting a ricochet death… and vice versa. :3

  • Brian Eyekon Koehler

    What about last gen wheres my patch at for the camo challenges still missing that one

    • Violet

      I know it sucks ive been wanting to prestige for like a week already but i dont want to cause ill lose my chalenges.

  • Violet

    Meanwhile on xbox 360 the camo challenges are still not fixed.

    • Michael

      Yeah that’s pissing me off. I’m on 360 and we didn’t get one update besides the one that came out a while ago. I want them to fix the camo challenges already so I can prestige already! And also I hope they fix the menu lag on 360. It’s very slow and that’s a bit frustrating.

  • Michael

    Is it just me or do you guys think the warbird needs to be buffed? When using the warbird manually, it sucks. I get so many hitmarkers when shooting a guy. The AI control warbird is really good but I want to use it myself.

  • How about also updating the Classic Playlists… Increased score limit for Kill Confirmed, yes, on the normal playlist that is xD

  • KernosT

    This game just keeps getting better,once that gun patch is out,this could be on the road to the best or atleast the closest to the best(LoL) CoD.

  • Stefan Lang

    Bleh, do a gun buff update. I feel like Im forced to use the Bal every game.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I’m using an HBR and doing great. It’s placebo, people just think it’s the best because it’s the best at close range. Buff the SMGs and the problem is gone.

    • I feel ya. Whenever I seem to have to backpack my entire team I put on my try-hard pants and equip the BAL with silencer + foregrip. Works every time~

    • SotaGamer

      There are many other good guns. ak12, kf5, hbra3, amr9, asm1.. they all have strengths and weaknesses. I would pick ak12 over bal anyday. :3

  • Potato

    Finally I can’t play Infected without these kids abusing exploits; Shit no sign of exploit where they get in top of building in Retreat

  • Guywithbrains

    Hooray! No more kids exploiting map glitches!

    Side note: I have lately played only TDM and Infected. Is there another gamemode I should give a try?

    • HenryDF

      Momentum is brilliant, as is Hardpoint. I’d recommend both, but I enjoy Momentum more – so much action, and rewarding if you play to the objective.

      • Guywithbrains

        But dat explosive spam.

        • HenryDF

          Flak Jacket can be useful, otherwise maybe being the suppression guy and taking out the enemies from a distance, rather than the guy capping flags/hardpoints.

          • Guywithbrains

            I’ll give it a try tomorrow. Also Uplink looks like much fun. Although all fun disappears because of BAL-27. Almost everyone uses it in every match. πŸ˜›

          • HenryDF

            I’ve been using Rapid Fire ASM1, can be useful against people using the Bal in close quarters. Barely use the BAL tbh, it’s just not a fun gun.

          • zombiefreak935

            Oh uplink too, doesn’t give you very much xp though.

    • Juses

      Momentum and Dom

      • Guywithbrains

        I’ll try Momentum tomorrow. I am not so sure about Domination because I always end up being on a losing team.

        • zombiefreak935

          If you do momentum, just make sure you have flack jacket.You will see why.

          • Guywithbrains

            Explosive spam. I’ll try it by myself too. Grenade launcher + semtex x2 + MAAWS + danger close. See you on the battlefield! πŸ˜€

          • zombiefreak935


    • Michael

      All I play is TDM and Momentum. I also play uplink but it’s better to play uplink if you have a full party with friends

    • zombiefreak935

      Hardpoint and Domination.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Hardpoint is fun. Very fast paced and less camping than other modes, since people have to move around the map. Camping in one spot will only help them during the duration of a hardpoint location.

  • Diego Diniz

    Fix the LAAAAG !!!

    • What lag? Oh, you talking about the last gen High Moon lag? Well, idk if that’s going to get fixed as High Moon doesn’t seen to have done much.

  • They need to buff the EM1. I can deal with the recoil but the low damage is ridiculous.

    • Guywithbrains

      I use it for close quarters noscoping… much more powerful. But it is not the right way to use that gun so buff please. πŸ™‚

      • I applaud you for using it close quarters. I prefer to run it on bigger maps especially Instinct. I’ll run UAV with Threat Detection as well due to the high TTK

        • Guywithbrains

          I can’t use it long range. It literally takes at least 5 seconds to kill someone and also that recoil when enemy is shooting at you at the same time (surprisingly with BAL-27).

          • Not so much long range but medium-long like excavator to top of temple or stairs or cave to temple. I don’t consider my play-style with the EM1 as camping but tactical area defense. I’m not The Worm

    • EMP3 or whatever the semi auto lazer rifle needs a MAJOR buff, it has a ADS time slower than sniper rifles, it’s over heat time is extremely quick and it’s cool down time is long, and it has very low damage.

      • I used it twice and it’s impossible. I’ll have to force myself to try it again.

      • AstroCyborg

        its supposed to be like that its called balance

        • It’s a semi auto heavy weapon, why does it take longer to aim then sniper rifles, and then takes way too many shots to kill and overheats at like 3-5 shots?

        • jordanxbrookes

          It’s called underpowered.

          • AstroCyborg

            or you don’t know how to use it right

  • zombiefreak935

    Just joined a game of infected on horizon, got 7 kills of people trying to get in the glitch.

    • Guywithbrains

      Now kids be like:

      “What? I can’t get to that glass room anymore! This game sucks!”

      *goes to hack in MW2*

      • Rodoe528

        “Lol noobs”

    • lol, noobs got rekt by SHG.
      I bet they were like: “Y IT NOT WORKING1!!!1”.

  • MrGladiator20

    They didn’t fix the more annoying….solar wall breach

    • zombiefreak935


      • dumdum

        in the map solar….?

        • Rodoe528

          An annoying glitch on solar especially in momentum, but you can still kill the glitchers

      • MrGladiator20

        In the corner by A flag domination. If you hadn’t noticed thats amazing. I can’t find a game on that map without someone killing me from it.

        • tarfeef101

          Play on PS4 and have my stats (because of SBM). Haven’t seen it once. Only saw one person ever do a map glitch and it was on Ascend I think (the elevator door one)

          • tarfeef101

            Actually I think I may be called horizon. I’m fourth prestige and still can’t remember all the maps

  • TheExtreme

    it seems high moon studio is sleeping…….

    • Well they are a bit over the moon

      • Nope, I’m here and don’t see them.

        • They must be higher

          • There is a second moon? I jumped over earth’s 3 times and didn’t find them

  • Ryumoau

    Awesome to see how fast they are working to improve the game.

  • Juses

    Can someone plz tell me how I seem like a troll? People on here keep saying I’m a troll for having an opinion.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Maybe you should get new opinions. (;

    • It could be a possibility that your avatar is a contributor to that opinion.

      • How? His whole account is a Dolan comic character..

      • Juses

        My account is based off juses from spodermen πŸ˜›

    • Slothigans

      Well with your name and profile pic you’re pretty much asking for it. No one is going to take you seriously.

    • Just change your profile pic to a sheep for the day and see what happens πŸ™‚

      • Juses


  • Shep

    I just want SBMM to go away for pubs and a little weapon balence!!!!!

  • Ben

    SBMM gone yet?

  • aPeX DeviL

    @Sledgehammer plz tell the company that made it for ps3 and 360 to fix the game or your game will end up like ghosts

  • Bdotson1984

    Connections are worse for me post patch, then before it. I have been in lobbies with people in CA when I live in Cincinnati. Post patch I was doing well in the game, now all I get is hit markers and seems like I am 1-2 seconds behind the enemy.

    The dedicated servers promised would of went a long way.. Most of my friends are trading in the game because the connections and lag compensation is terrible.

  • Sonny

    I can’t believe AngryJoe gave this game 5/10! It deserves much less. 3/10 is more appropriate especially with all the glitches and bugs.

    • Gump

      Compared to a lot of other games launch, I’d say this one was pretty smooth. Plus they are fixing these bugs and glitches really fast.

  • FazalGaming

    Finally lol! You don’t know how many youtube videos I have recorded and running into a glitcher that kills me!

  • I like the BAL but if they have to nerf it I hope it is a small one. Dont buff the other guns because we already die too fast a lot of times. Or raise the time to kill and buff the SMG’s across the board.

    • Rodoe528

      Your just saying that cause you suck with every other gun

      • Lol if you say so dude. I also use the KF5 a lot.

        • Rodoe528

          Well, the KF5 loses to the BAL in close range, don’t you think it needs a nerf?

  • ottomanelite

    And yet ps3 and xbox 360 still hasn’t gotten the camo patch or any patch by all means way to go high moon

  • DarthDan97

    If Sledgehammer nerfs the guns I’ll re get AW.. I got so sick of getting killed by the BAL I had to return it…

    • Use the BAL then.

      What a ridiculous reason for returning a game.

    • ” re get aw ” I think I got stupid reading that.

    • Slothigans

      That’s the dumbest reason to return a game. You don’t even deserve to play it in the first place.

  • zombiefreak935

    Wow they are actualy accomplishing stuff,unlike IW, How long did we have the glitch on whiteout?

  • Stentar

    I heard they are releasing a massive update that’s suppose to fix AW. It’s called Black Ops 3.

    • UpRiftCOD

      Sounds bad

  • Name

    anyone else having problems with prestige tokens and camos, first pres it worked for me but when i got to pres 2 and tried to unlock the MAYHEM permanently it didnt work, also some camos dont work on some variations of the RW1 and i got diamond camo for it somehow and i didnt even complete all the challenges, i still have like 6 more to do

  • Juan Ruiz

    I’m still waiting for dedicated servers lies again DAMN IT

  • Juan Ruiz

    I’m still waiting for dedicated servers lies again DAMT

  • mason 117

    They haven’t even fixed the camo challenges for xbox 360, wtf?!?


  • Tbax10

    Please buff the smg’s there’s no way I’m losing gun fights to AR’s especially if they’re hip firing and firing second makes no sense. Kf5 literally takes like 5-6 bullets to kill lol

    • Slothigans

      I hate that smgs are so weak it’s like I’m shooting rubber bullets.

      • Best_Guest

        Um no your just use the OP smg’s of ghosts.

        • Slothigans

          Um, no I’m not. I’m not the only one that thinks the smgs are weak.

  • Quinten

    Please patch Skill based match making. I want normal connection based match making. If I want to compare myself with others, I will do ranked. Its fun to get against clans, but not every game. It is fun to get against tryharders, you will learn from ir, but not every game. I want also a lobby with noobs, thats also Call of Duty.

  • J Sama

    To all the people complaining about the BAL.. you guys don’t understand that the BAL is simply overused and not necessarily overpowered. I’m pretty sure if everyone used an IMR and headglitch/one burst killed you, you would be crying about that too. There are variants of different guns that compete(if not better) than the BAL. The “hole puncher” ARX gets one burst kills from the chest up and has a fast fire rate. The “hair trigger” AK-12 has a fast fire and higher damage than the BAL. I honestly think the real problems is the garbage supply drops. I’m 5th prestige and still got an armory full of garbage weapons and items. That isn’t right at all. If they gave more variants of different weapons more consistently, maybe more people would use other(and potentially better) weapons. As it stand now, the Stock BAL is a beast and that’s why most people use it. If I get an Insanity HBR or a Hair Trigger AK-12.. I’d probably use those, but I feel like my Carbon BAL is all I have to compete right now tbh

    • Favorite Ape

      So your saying it needs a nerf? πŸ™‚

      • J Sama

        Nahh, not saying it needs a nerf. Just saying the Drop rates on potential better weapons needs to be buffed. No point in nerfing the BAL.. then every other variant(especially the ones with lower damage) become pure garbage like the PDW in BO2.

  • Guest?

    Now only if high moon would get there shit together and fix everything thats wrong on last gen.

  • Eaz Jmilly

    Fuck sledgehammer. I want Xbox 360 updates and patches and no, not everyone can afford an Xbox one or Ps4. Honestly theirs no reason too get one

  • gdsaf

    fucking give last gen an update already

  • Super029something

    If you folks have enough money too buy GTA V on next gen I 1000% recommend. 10/10 would buy again on pc

  • aces0le

    easy balance the bal so it doesnt melt people so easily, and patch these damn glitch spots its ruining the game.

  • High moon u fucking suck dont acctually fix the maps (this is a small complaint but sorry must rant) I played acsend yesterday and used the glitch spot on there didnt use it online not a douche I used it in a pm infected with bot to see how stupid they were and they just ran into a corner and stopped ok I went on today to see if they fixed the spot and thank you they did but they just put a fucking invisible wall there and called it a day the patch for ps4 the changed the building structe and put a rail there my xbox 360 version of this game is shit fuck u high moon thanks for a crap port

    • And now I cant even play the game cause I cant pick a class fuck u and ur game high moon I wish it wernt so good so I could return it and be like fuck ur gamr

  • And still people get outside the map on Defender….wonder why they did not patch that. But it was funny to see those morons trying to get into that lift in Horizon.

  • Diego Diniz

    I try to PLay right now on PS4 and the LAG is HUDGE!!! Why the heck they dont fix this Sh1t????

  • kia0525

    There’s a new exploit on defender

  • RebornAngel666

    They don’t even fix the servers.. They took so long for this hot fix. Now they’re gonna take months to fucking fix the guns. And their not even gonna take off SBMM I bet. They don’t listen to the fans anymore! Majority of players DO NOT WANT SBMM! Why is it so difficult for them to just take it off already?? There’s ranked play for that already! I get into lobbies everyday with a team that leaves and rage quits, and plays like shit! How is that SBMM?? Every game! I wish someone could watch me play my games so they can see the lag and SBMM bullshit, and team management (they never switch up the teams in the lobby, they keep it the same, even when you leave and join back). I would also love to know how I can get the upper hand on players and yet they have the ability to be able to kill me out of no where.. This bullshit has gotten me as mad as I was on cod ghosts. They need to fix this shit ASAP. I’m done playing this game until they fucking do. Currently playing a game where my whole team left, and I’m the only one in the lobby playing against 5 other players on the other team. Gotta love SBMM. I love my team. Fuck… This… Game…

    I think they should nerf the bal’s accuracy both hip fire and ads as that will make it so SMGS Can win close up engagements and things like the IMR and HBR have a chance at medium/long range, it would be too hard to buff all the other guns to be on the bal’s standards. The problem with the bal is it kills too quick and is too accurate. NERF PLS SHG.

    Lol what’s funny is there is still a glitch to get out of the map on defender. Got killed multiple times by a dude hiding in a rock out side of the map.
