      I bet ScoOott feels like a real fagit cos I beat him.

  • Drakon

    Finally I get to compare my stats to everybody elses

  • Skillreks

    Ihave been waiting for this forever XD

  • Skillreks

    also, x2 xp is out yaaaayyy

  • Skillreks

    2.7GB update for ps4 -.-

    • Caitlyn the Tankswag

      Its not, thats the overall amount of updates on ps4, i think its actually about 600mb

  • w

    can u see others people combat record or no? I think combat record is just so much more fun

    • lunator100hd .

      Yes , i like to know that the enemy team i just destroyed was full of high kd players. It adds a new level of satisfaction.

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        People back out when they see other players have a High K/D….

        • lunator100hd .

          Only scared girles.

  • lunator100hd .

    I just read Lobby Leaderboards? Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  • Vermell

    Meh I’m not crazy about stats anymore, they’re meaningless if you think about it.

    • lunator100hd .

      Stats are meaningless in super mario, i really want to know about my opponent.

      • Vermell

        What’s it gonna tell you? That they play more (or less) than you? K/D don’t mean anything. I’ve beasted on guys with high kds. Likewise I’ve been destroyed by guys with lower kds than mine.

        • Skillreks

          regardless of how much you play, score per minute doesn’t change

          • lunator100hd .

            score per minute lets you know how much of a campers your enemies are, very important.

          • Vermell

            SPM is effit at best. Mine was above 300 but since I started playing SnD a lot more its gone down below the 300 mark. It’s not the best way to measure skill.

          • lunator100hd .

            Its the best way to measure many things.

          • Vermell

            Don’t be vague and please specify. I have a low SPM, doesn’t mean I’m a camper. It’s like win/loss. High kd players usually have a low one since they go for kills, slayers if you will.

          • lunator100hd .

            Good slayers have the biggest spm , what are you talking about. Getting kills and fast makes you spm go up no matter what game mode you play, so that answers your question.

          • Vermell

            Well yeah in respawns but in something like SnD its different. Look at ImMarksman. He’s got a 317 SPM and he plays SnD and Free-For-All. Besides I know what the real reason is, finding low skilled lobbies. Pubstomping at its finest. You want to feel like a real beast? Play Arena.

        • lunator100hd .

          Play with me and trust me, my kd will live up your expectations!

          • Vermell

            I’m sure it will

          • Nella


          • Tuby

            I dont care the stats of my enemies I go tryhard all the time and it is the way 2 go. I do well in almost each lobby


      they’re only meaningless when nobody can see them

  • waylay3r

    Will pc also get a patch?

  • Big Al

    I challenge you cartman to a comment war

  • Skillreks

    so I just updated it, and theres no leaderboard ;-; it actually gave me a weird glitch where it says I unlocked something in the seraph but when I go there, theres nothing tere

    • Vermell

      I hate when that happens, it does it to me too with the calling cards.

    • exeterman2

      Exact same thing for me! Same specialist to.

      • John Blue

        Go through every Head and Body in both the normal and Black Market subsections on the Specialist that’s bugged, then select the standard one and it should disappear.

        • exeterman2

          Thanks man, that worked

          • John Blue

            No problem, someone else found this out I just shared it

    • Vapr

      Same thing for me. So annoying.

      • John Blue

        Go through every Head and Body in both the normal and Black Market subsections on the Specialist that’s bugged, then select the standard one and it should disappear-

    • ICallUpShotgun

      go over the black market item and hover over them all. Solved the issue for me

      EDIT: go over the black market item for Seraph

      • Kobrah

        Thanks dude, this worked!

    • Hasnain Malik

      Yes this also happened to me

      • John Blue

        Go through every Head and Body in both the normal and Black Market subsections on the Specialist that’s bugged then select the standard one and it should disappear

    • Yep, same for me.

      • John Blue

        Go through every Head and Body in both the normal and Black Market subsections on the Specialist that’s bugged, then select the standard one and it should disappear

        • Oh wow, this worked! Thanks a lot!

          • John Blue

            No problem man, I got the advice from someone else when I had the problem

    • WWEfanatic22

      I had that too I went to look but nothing was unlocked

  • Undien1

    I hope a killstreaks buff is coming along with hit detection…. Seriously the beta had the greatest hit detection since MW2

    • Rorke File

      why the final doesn’t ?

    • jordanxbrookes

      I wouldn’t say the hit detection was THAT great in the Beta, but it’s definitely worse now than what it was in the Beta.

      • Undien1

        True. But it took a whole lot less bullets then compared to now. Doesn’t make sense that the most important thing should be the ability to kill when you shoot….not eat a whole clip, an exploding arrow, and a knife from behind and still kill someone yet they live

      • Tuby

        Agreed hope the fix it soon

    • Mario Rivera

      This is the aftermath of getting the slow ttk the community cried for… Effectively all it did was create much more unreasonable moments where enemies sponge up too many shots and give the lag compensation more room to take over gunfights. Good thing 1 shot kill weapons were nerfed for the MOST part cuz it was annoying to get quickscoped/shotguned after putting 4 to 5 shots into the guy in BO2. Ppl really need to consider function before they start crying. Ur kills now take entire mags but ur deaths still feel like u got 1 bursted regardless, must feel real nice… Theres a good reason y IW games seem to function better than 3arch games. Cod needs to stay in the mostly 3 to 5 shot kill formula for it to synergize better with the connections we get in practice, 1 shot kill weapons and obviously the players expecting their opponents to die in a reasonable amount of time. On the same note it also needs to exclude things like rapid fire, stopping power and dead eye as those make a TTK go from reasonably fast to ridiculous. By the time i finished killing some1 in this game I already got at least 2 enemies on top of me ready to instantly clean me up b4 i can reload my empty gun for my next fight lol.

      • Undien1

        Exactly correct. COD 4 was amazing whether you had a 4 bar connection or a 2 bar. But now lately especially in AW it was much worse than it is now in BOps 3. If a gun says 2-3 shots then I expect just like everyone else that it’ll take 2-3 shots not 12 bullets then the enemy team respawns in the area right where you are reloading. It feels like that horrible wave spawn from BOps 2 that caused unnecessary deaths simply because someone was camping in the back and it got triggered. I find that COD is trying to get rid of spawn trapping but in the process making things a bit more unbalanced along with adding frustration

    • Whatever you want to call it, hit detection increasing the TTK…either way it is better than the beta. Lower TTK is awful and rarely shows who the better player is.

  • Lewis D. Conner

    How the hell are people prestige 2 already? My kd is 1.47 and w/l is 1.18, i play about 3 hours a day yet im only lvl 48. Its too boring to play this game all day.

    • Skillreks

      I’m 4th prest XD and I have 2 jobs. 😀

      • Is one of them playing call of duty?

      • anommona

        Well it helps when you have no girlfriend

        • SilentSolutions


    • Skillreks

      difference is I don’t have school right now. taking a year off

      • zack

        Famous last words lol make sure you go back

        • anommona

          Not if he’ll be deeper in debt

    • ItzSikh

      play game modes with higher exp

      • Lewis D. Conner

        I only play free for all which is good if ypu always come first or aecondy

        • Timothy Brown

          Domination is exponentially better

    • Stefan Lang

      Im 2nd prestige with a little over a day played. But whats even more ridiculous is that people are master prestige with dark matter camo

      • Capten ermirica

        Around 12 hours for a prestige? Don’t talk crap mate.

        • Simon

          I hit 1st prestige at 16 hours played.. I only played TDM and KC. I can see 12 hours being viable on better game modes.

        • haytam

          I average around 12 1/2 hour per prestige with 570 SPM

        • Stefan Lang

          Who was talking crap? ???? nothing I said was talking crap.

        • Jon


    • jordanxbrookes

      Because I’m a Call of Duty sweat ;P

      • Mr_ysi42t96

        Wish if I had the time to sweat cod, oh well, the holiday is coming 😀

    • Tuby

      I am already prestige 6/ but I have had 2 weeks Holiday since the launch. Your kd aint that great though. Keep playing you will get better. Now I have to work again so cant play that much anymore besides the weekend

      • Jon

        quit trolling kid. your kd isnt that great

        • Tuby

          Haha thats why its above 3

          • Jon

            I will believe it when I see it.

    • Kurupt

      I’m Prestige 3 level 31. Play Nuketown Chaos Moshpit. I do challenges for all guns and currently have diamond SMGs. Doing AR atm. Do challenges for Specialists. I currently have 5/9 complete. P.S. I normally play 4-5 hours a day after work.

      • RobMelchor

        You sir deserve a beer, thanks for the tips.

      • Sobi

        No life jk lol

    • RedRen

      Already people with Prestige 5.

    • RobMelchor

      IKR, level 44 playing 2hrs a day (about 5 days a week) XD

    • Timothy Brown

      What is your spm? Average score per game?

      • Timothy Brown

        I’m prestige two only really play on the weekends but I average close to 5k points a game if not higher

      • haytam

        Prestige 3 lvl 30. SPM 570. KD 2.01

        • Timothy Brown

          Then how the hell do I level faster than you XD

    • Edro

      I have a friend who’s prestige 8

    • haytam

      It’s all about that score per minute.

    • felifels

      You might be using the same gun or just pkaying tdm. Switch your set ups do challenges and play obj based games. Kill confirmed worked for me to rank up fast

    • Jon

      depends on the game modes you are playing. TDM will take forever to level up. Objective game modes have always been the way to go. KD doesnt matter as far as leveling up.

    • Rack up them kills bro. All I play is Hardcore TDM and Hardcore FFA. Prestige 2 Lvl. 46… I think. But def Prestige 2. I got a buddy of mine who quit his job for reasons unknown and he’s already Prestige 3 Lvl. 38. All he plays is Hardcore TDM.

    • str8socialdegen

      noe wun carez bout ur kd fagit


    somebody please tell me they added ability to view other people’s combat records

    • Lewis D. Conner


    • lunator100hd .

      its actually mw3 style.


    what a joke of a game
    what the fuck is the point in a lobby leaderboard when it orders by score per minute, which is irrelevant to skill or time invested in that gamemode

    • lunator100hd .

      score per minute isnt irrelevant to skill lol.

      • DEMOLITION12

        enjoy your leaderboard with a different top 18 every hour and people who play the gamemode once and get a high spm and never touch it again lmao

        • Skillreks

          in the lobby… if they don’t play much, they won’t be in the lobby with them. and if they are, their spm will drop like a bomb.

      • Nicholas LaCroix

        if you play SnD your spm will be very low

        • lunator100hd .

          Thats true but snd is an exception.

      • Undien1

        You’re right. But SPM does give you an idea on the other person’s skill. You know a high means slayer, while a low could mean camper or defensively aggressive. I play much slower now than I did in the previous due to the spawns switching so randomly throughout. So SPM just gives you a sense of what to expect I guess

    • Jon

      spm is a better OVERALL way of looking a player’s performance


    and they STILL didn’t fix the zombies prestige bug where you attachments never show up in game lol

  • Frank Rizzo

    Seems like Im getting even more lag! What a great patch!

    • Skillreks

      just you

      • infidel

        You can’t say things like that, don’t you know that Frankie here is a special snowflake and he’s always right?

  • LovekillerX

    I don’t know what they did but domination was actually playable this time… perfect timing. Time to level up see you on the battlefield!

    • Guywithbrains

      Somehow lag is gone. I played 5 team deathmatches and after patch and double xp came I went to domination and found out it played smoothly.

      Although in a couple of domination matches my launcher became my primary weapon.

      • LovekillerX

        Yeah it is nice to take out everything that moves in the sky. Yes I’m that guy who makes your scorestreaks disappear when you just put it.

        • Guywithbrains

          I destroyed about 5 UAVs, 3 counter UAVs, 2 Wraiths and H.A.T.R. in a single domination game.

          • LovekillerX

            PTFO or GTFO. I make sure my team isn’t being annihilated by enemy scorestreaks so they can go after the objective.

          • cbns007

            That, and the 100+ xp points every hit! =D

          • Mario Rivera

            Its way too easy to destroy streaks in this game. The launchers essentially have no lock on time lol

          • Timothy Brown

            On AW it took way to long, I’d rather fast than slow

          • Tuby

            I got 64 kills and 5 ,deaths I love domination

        • Timothy Brown

          I’ve one shot wraiths, killed packages before they drop, same with wraiths XD

      • jt3z

        No point in running high streaks in this game as they are shot down instantly. I got my Mother ship 5 times yesterday and it was shot down within 10 sec every time. Im not even gonna bother mentioning the Wraith and HATR lol.

        • Matt

          Run raps sentry gi unit

    • Undien1

      Everything seems smoother but honestly hit detection is still quite iffy

      • Charlie Mcclure

        I’m at 1345% how big or how long is this update. What’s it got to get up to before u can play?

  • Treyarch is the greatest <3

    • CrowReap .


  • Undien1

    If anyone is on Xbox One feel free to add. I recently just switched from PlayStation as PS4s were a little bit more expensive at that moment but add me. Xbox live name is undien1.

  • dankmaymayrkony2019

    So how come they’re fixing things like this and not fixing prestige in zombies? I can’t even get attachments on more than one gun?

    • RdJokr

      It’s fixed on PC earlier this week though. Don’t know why it hasn’t been fixed for you guys.

    • Tom Goossens

      I know right! Wtf! It really takes away a bit of the fun in zombies for me! And if they fixed it on PC, why the fuck not on PS4 goddamnit!

    • Dante

      It is fixed on console you just have to prestige again.

    • Punisher

      It want let me play multiplayer on zombies,it kicks me back to the main menu does anybody know how to fix this??

    • Nate Payton

      What about these cheating bastards on the giant map, jumping on walls and edges when zombies can’t get/hit them?

  • FazalGaming

    Am I the only one who is having worse lag now than before?

    • lunator100hd .

      Nop, i just got 150+ ping and ton of lag.

    • Cameron

      I wasn’t laughing at all before and now since the update I just skip around the map on a 1-2 bar

  • Mario Rivera

    I just bought some KF with the AD on this page lol

  • lunator100hd .

    I played a solo tdm and the Lobby Leaderboards was right under the scorestreaks, but after i party up with some guys, Lobby Leaderboards wasent there. WTF?

  • HzM Chino

    they need to update the weapon kits bug on zombies , its been getting on my nerves how they are updating glitches and multiplayer but not the specific thing thats need .

    • Showstopper

      I lost all my upgraded weapons on zombies.

  • zack

    Talked to Microsoft support and they said they are still on temporary servers from last Christmas. Remember when lizard squad took down everything? Yeah well they still haven’t fixed it. Thanks guy at Microsoft for actually spilling the beans and telling the truth. Could have a lot to do with it. Will only get worse once they try to go back to the real servers. And with Christmas coming up smh


    NO! I hate this update. Now people will see my KD and low SPM in TDM.

    • Slothigans

      And? It’s a fuckin game your life is not on the line.

      • lunator100hd .

        I think he is joking otherwise i feel sad for guys like him.

        • Slothigans

          If he is then that’s cool lol but I hate people that actually are like that.

  • Nynto

    Most important: M8 is even better now. THE FUCK!

    • Random

      Except, it isn’t. It’s still got too large of a burst delay and it feels like there’s no 3 shot kill range to me. It’s very rare I can one-burst anyone either unless they’re deep-throating the barrel.

      • Kobrah

        Three hit kill on a 4-round burst weapon would be way OP!

  • Mack

    I want to play with an american guy to see how connection goes. Send me a friend request.

  • Bookie

    I love how I keep leveling up and not getting my unlock token since the update…

  • So happy they have started nerfing the LMGs. The XR really didnt need more nerfing. The M8 got buffed which I dont get, and the Vesper didnt get nerfed what?

  • RobMelchor

    Good nerf for the Gorgon, annoying weapon! mostly used by campers.

    • Mack

      It’s not so powerful in closed-range gunfights.

  • HenryDF

    What about camos being nerfed? Stuff like Weaponized 115 now covers far less of the gun.


      how can a camo be nerfed you moron

    • Kobrah

      LMAO, NERF ALL THE CAMOS!!!!1!!!1!

  • Siftblade

    Biggest thing is probably Gorgon Nerf and FFA spawns. Everything else is very minor or just bug fixes

    • Bdotson1984

      Lag is worse

      • Kobrah

        Not for me

  • Bdotson1984

    Dear god, Treyarch you are simply the worst. Lag is even worse for me post patch. 2.0KD in all other CODs, just went 6-15. Was dropping in one shot in my screen… there was a 2-3 second delay in what my opponent saw vs what i seen. Now I am sure a bunch of Tards on here will suddenly get their CCIE and blame my internet, but it’s not. Lag compensation is real and is destroying this game. 2 weeks and still not fixed.

    If it’s not RIP COD. This is pathetic

  • Even though I think Donald Trump sucks, this picture is great

    • FazalGaming



      i think you suck

    • jt3z

      Im gonna bet you voted for OweBama twice lol

      • I wasn’t old enough to vote either of those elections. But I’m old enough to vote now, and I’m not voting for Trump, and assuming i voted for Obama because I dislike trump is ignorant thinking.

        • Jon

          grow up kid

          • I will once you do, kid

          • Jon

            Hey Kid,
            Just because your nuts finally dropped and you are old enough to vote, doesn’t mean you still aren’t a kid.

          • I’m 20 you fucking retard.
            Your comments really add nothing, so the fact that you keep replying just renders it pointless. By the way, calling people “kid” over and over doesn’t make you look smart or cool, it just makes you look like a pretentious idiot.

          • Cosmyc

            Lol it makes him look more like a kid

  • SlipperyFaps Teh Spy

    they should enable exp for offline players for zombies if they cannot do this why not give us all the gumballs to use

    • SlipperyFaps Teh Spy

      i dont know why i was blacklisted outta random…. yesturday

  • k5berry

    No fix for the campaign loading into the wrong mission and safehouse, c’mon!

  • Great patch! I’m really excited about the support that Treyarch is showing for this game. Based on the changes they made, it’s clear that they are listening to the community too. Can’t wait to see what else is in store.

  • ScOott

    HVK-30 is so weak compared to the other assult rifles.. My KD took a slight battering getting that gold, the others before are fine, I just got to the ICR-1 and like that as well ..

    • FazalGaming

      Which is the best AR in your opinion?

      • ScOott

        I like the KN-44 so far, but I’m doing them in order getting them gold, so anything after the ICR I haven’t used yet like the man-o-war or the sheiva or the M8A7 ..

      • I personally think that the ICR-1 is the best assault rifle because it is an all-around type. It has a nice rate of fire, a nice recoil pattern, and a nice range. It has a somewhat weaker damage profile when compared to weapons such as the XR-2 and M8A7, but it makes up for this is its great RoF.

        • ScOott

          Yh not had much time with it yet, but I’ve had some great games without any attatchments on the gun so far, so this might end up being my best once I got the attatchments for it n used it a while ..

      • SuperImpact

        ICR-1 or the M8 when you’re not lagging.

        • Kobrah

          I used the IRC today and the damage is pittiful! Maybe it’s because I usually use the KN44 though. The KN44 and Sheiva are my favourite ARs, I also don’t mind the HVK

        • FazalGaming

          Ok ty

  • Still haven’t addressed the amout of point you get in Safeguard. After Safeguard was available in the BETA I was hooked on it and didn’t play any other mode for the rest of the BETA’s lifespent. But now it just doesn’t feel the same and it feels so less rewarding compered to Uplink, which is my new favorite mode in Black Ops 3 because of how fun and how rewarding this game mode is. Vahn Fix Safeguard please.

    • haytam

      Right, I love playing chaos moshpit but then when Safeguard is the map I just wanna leave because I get so little xp compared to any other gamemode xo

      • There is physically no way to stop the robot from reaching the base in Safeguard / Nuk3town. If somebody did it, you should get an achievment for it, because God knows I tried so many times.

        • Cosmyc

          I didn’t know safeguard was not rewarding. I’ve been playing it because I believed it gave me the most xp. Without Double xp I get around 20,000 xp per match. What would you recommend I do instead?

          • The problem is Safeguard used to give you 100+ points for the kill and 50+ for assists, and it made going for scorestreaks ballanced, but changing it to 50+ kill and 25+ assist made it going for scorestreaks not fun as well as not that fun to kill people. The top 3 game modes that I have been playing that gave me massive rewards are Uplink, Hardpoint and Kill Confirmed.

    • bob

      Do you think they are going to fix the thing in zombies where you can only have attachments on one gun?

      • I didn’t even know that was a thing. Im level 11 at this point but my favorite weapon to use in KN-44 and I have Red Dot Sight and Quickdraw on it. Is it just for the main attachment or what?

        • Drasadex

          What happens is that if you use an unlock token on a gun when prestiging, sometimes the attachments either don’t show up or they could get applied to the wrong gun.

          • I prestiged lke 2 days ago and I used the Unlock token to get the Perma. Knife. I won’t be using the tokens to unlock guns because I find them more useful to use on Perks of Wildcards.

  • Jasco

    Did they fix the weapon kits in zombies yet?



  • Bryson Tiller

    I would like to see more zombies patches. Why can’t we have lobby leaderboards and a READY UP feature in zombies? It would make it a lot more playable. They give too much attention to multiplayer. Also: Stop patching the haymaker, its wasn’t even OP.

  • Alexander Dean

    Have they fixed the gun attachments in zombies when you prestige?

    • Read

      No sir.

    • Drasadex


  • Jesse Sobers

    It’s worse for me since the update after every match I get the error screen n that never happened before I’m not getting my points

  • sion

    gayarch has done it again, game crashes after ever match (ps4)

  • Luis Vazquez

    So is it just me or this patch just broke the game?.. The application keeps crashing every time I’m done with a match. The Call of Duty logo stays on screen for 2 minute when starting up the application but the sounds & music keeps going & a lot of crazy crappie is going on as well with in the game before it crashes.

    • sion

      not just you dude, game is literally unplayable lol

      • Luis Vazquez

        Freaking sucks since double XP is going on as well

  • Jessica Because

    Where’s the sharing of paintshop for pc? Cmon pvdev team….

  • Onemanarmy

    M8A7 BUFF!
    Whos idea was that?

    • Skillreks


  • IGun

    So now instead of the error message it sending me right back to the BLOPS 3 title screen after every multiplayer match… Wtf is this?!

    • Skillreks

      tweet it to Vahn. he’s looking for people with this error

  • PvBrent

    I’m so confused. The only leader boards that show are the same leader boards that have been in the game since day 1. Yet this site claims they added lobby leader boards and yet the patch notes say “Enabled leader boards in barracks” yet the leader boards have ALWAYS been in the barracks since the game launched. Am I missing something or are we being trolled?

    • probably being trolled, that’s the only explanation 😀

  • PvBrent

    Also why do these patch notes also show buffs and de-buffs from previuse hot fixes or “game updates” from before the patch? The patch notes say the gorgon had its mag size reduced from 50 to 40 but its been that way since the game update about a week ago… I don’t understand these patch notes at all.

    • Kobrah

      This list includes all the hot fixes they have done so far as well as the proper patch

    • Nate Payton

      Is called a NERF, not a ‘debuff’

  • Naqash Liaqat

    They should have a double Cryptokey weekend

  • eZwinZ

    No PC? I’d love these Gun nerfs now thanks.. sick of the Haymaker and Gorgon spam from plebs who can’t play for shit.

    • RdJokr

      It’s already on PC earlier this week.

  • Vized SP

    I can’t get rejack at all in search and destroy that’s not right.

  • Anthony Bettmeng

    Ok treyarch why the hell would you decrease the charge rates in search and destroy for specialist. Now if I play all 7 rounds possible and go 10 and 0 I get half of my gravity spikes. This is not cool especially for someone who only plays search and wants to unlock armor for people

  • MagnaDefender1

    Soooooo glad they nerfed the gorgon. Now they need to buff the awareness perk

    • Kobrah

      Awareness as godly! Do you use a head set?

  • Tsaki

    Do the leadeboards exist because I can’t find them…

    • lol they’re hidden, somewhere in menu -> barracks

  • imBATMAN

    Can they nerf the Argus range?
    i was in Nuk3town hardpoint in the blue house, this guy is outside the entrance and i’m in the far back kitchen and he kills me tf

  • Braydos

    How about when you prestige you dodnt recieve the valling card has that veen fixed

  • Anthony Bettmeng

    So you can’t use your specialist in search now because they take foreverrrrrrrr to recharge nice job

  • Aaron V

    I see no logical reason the M8A7s Rate of Fire was increased… It shreds already.

    I guess the pros and players putting in the serious hours were complaining they couldn’t out gun Subs at close range, smh.

    • zack

      I unlocked the m8 after my first prestige and I feel like I wasted my unlock token. It’s def an over rated gun imo.

  • Kill Denied

    Someone give me The Gaint map for Rise of the Tomb Raider code.

  • Cod Player

    Does anyone else have the issue with after every match its says you leveled up from the previous level?

    • Cosmyc

      yes I have been dealing with this since the update

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    This is the game for me in a nutshell. Ouch! That bad aim! Get owned, son! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0SBgKP7VZw

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    “Fixed an issue where Players were randomly receiving online error messages while in matches or in menus.” FUCKING THANK YOU! Was this the “server error”?

  • Deathhawk78

    This update garbage .Since the update every time I play a multiplayer match, when the games over and goes back to tha game menu it kicks me out and ask if I want to send a report . Than I have to start the game over again. Complete garbage.

    • Greasy Neckbeard

      Same thing happened to me.

  • Markdg23

    I’m just glad that treyarch is fixing things right away, bo3 has pulled me away from my typical destiny grind and I’m thankful for that bc I’m sick of mediocre support from bungie and then taking months to patch simple things. Treyarch always comes through. Tried some iron banner last night and immediately came back to bo3 bc the multiplayer is simply better and more enjoyable.

    • Cosmyc

      Same. With bungie’s inconsistency, I don’t even get on for trials anymore. Hopefully they get it together in december

  • Big Hadi24

    Anyone getting constant crashes on ps4?

  • FATHEAD661

    And to think, everyone was on Vahns dick before AND at launch! Lol, so glad I bought Fallout 4 instead. BO3 seems to be a shit storm, lol. Hope they fix all the bugs soon though, I still wanna play it.

    • Greasy Neckbeard

      Ya it is, it’s still not a bad game though

  • Greasy Neckbeard

    What the fuck did they do to weaponized 115
    it was good before now it looks like ass

  • Gorgon, a 50 BMG LMG in this game has low penetration and isn’t more effective toward vehicles?

    I could care less about it no longer becoming a 2 shot kill because that just shouldn’t work for gameplay and it shows, but come on treyarch.

  • LostInPasta

    Lobby leaderboards only pop up sometimes.

    • Shantzonpoint

      Only time I see the leaderboard is when I join a new lobby. After one round, it’s gone.

  • The ReaX

    How do I play SPLITSCREEN with guests? I can’t now, and I’m extremely frustrated. Xb1. Please give step-by-step guide on how to fix.

    • Kobrah

      Works fine for me on PS4

      Turn on second controller
      Log on
      Press x to join party in the main menu
      Make custom game/join multiplayer

  • Richy

    Thanks for making the pharo suck at close range

    • Kobrah

      It’s still quite powerful for me

  • Cameron

    Ever since this update I get severe lag, go from 1 to 3 bars all game skipping around the map. Anyone else have this problem?

    • Fjolltzu


  • Jay Evan

    On the topic of Black ops 3 I have an idea.
    When you activate the Overkill wildcard, and equip the exact same weapon, you’re able to dual-weild said weapon. This wouldn’t work on LMG’s, snipers, and the KRM shotgun.
    Accuracy, handling, (possibly range) and speed are greatly affected. Laser sight is disabled.

  • Joseph Martin

    That’s nice. Now can we get lobby leaderboards for zomibes? We haven’t had them since BO1. Seriously.

  • tristan

    I cant find any lobbys once iv done the update it wont join games

  • Ken Ward

    Good thing they had a 3 year development. Not to mention it’s only CoD 46. Let’s give them a break, they’re still new at this.

  • shailagamer

    eversince the new update i cant join any public matches, anyone else having this problem?

  • Terry Lee Matlock Jr.

    How do i keep my party (4 people) together in Online multiplayer. When we hit public match, it only takes 2 of us like 80% of the time and leaves the other 2 looking for a game.

    • Rob Hoofe

      Any body else got a fix for this having the same problem ? Getting really annoying now?!?

  • Violet

    Ever since this update I’ve been having connectivity issues like crazy. Is that just me getting ridiculously unlucky, or are there other people experiencing the same problem?

    • Fjolltzu

      Yeah im skipping around the map and so is the rest of the lobby

  • Diego Diniz

    Wich mode Gives more XP????

  • TurbotraktoR

    anyone know how unlock hero outfits on Ruin character?

  • boy blue

    Wtf it won’t let me prestige in zombies or see the leader boards how do i fix this ? Anybody ?

  • emilySJ

    PS4 : help i lost all my prestige how do i retrieve it?!?! ….weapons , gear , gone ,.,,,,

  • Marcel

    My Dual Wield Challenge kills aren’t counting and the Steady Aim kills are being really slow (I get 10 kills but only 4 counted)

  • Hotwheels_420

    I’m having a issue where the enemy name is showing up blue and I mistake them for a teammate and end up dying and also I play hardcore and there is almost no difference from core all me and my clan members get is hit markers in hardcore… Really??… Bo3 has a lot of issues.

    • Nate Payton

      I think that’s the biggest mistake they made with this game, you CANT tell the difference between teams except the color of the gamer tag (which I believe one perk disables) so in hardcore it’s a pain in the butt

  • Fábio Carinhas

    Anybody have the “no kill count” on the challenge DUAL WIELD??? Ikill with the 2 guns attachment and the challenge doesnt count my kills… any fix???

  • Twiisp

    no update for PC?

  • Muhd Abdillah

    I got a problem with campaign, Everyone i see in the game included vehicles are all ghost.. Soo i only see tires and guns floating around, Help me ?

  • Alison Peters

    So I just downloaded the version on cod black opts 3 and all my calling cards are gone there is nothing but a blank screen there now. What do I do to fix it.

  • Harry Wilson

    Im getting a wierd glitch were its saying theres something new in my custom classes, when I open then littlw green arrow is hovering in the corner of the box Class set 1, I have not found a way to remove this and its bugging me

    • Harry Wilson

  • Michael A Williams

  • RuthlessModz_

  • RuthlessModz_

    Just wanted to ask coz I’m still updating, 42 minutes still remaining..!

  • Rudy Perez

    Has anyone lost a game due to kd? For example you might have got more kills than someone but they have had less deaths than you and they rank higher even though you have more kills? This just happened to me the other day playing a friend and also happen to me an online game and I didn’t know why or if I was the only one it was happening to?

  • kd

    Why cant I see the lobby leaderboard im in not my friends???
