[PS4 only] Descent DLC 3 Map Pack Support

  • Cryogen
    • Located far off the coast in the Dead Sea, an isolated compound holds some of the world’s most dangerous criminals in frozen isolation.  Sentry towers keep watch over the small map’s circular design, as frenetic combat is funneled around the prison’s cryogenic tubes which offer plenty of opportunities for wall running attacks.
  • Berserk
    • Ancient sentinels from a lost civilization guard the entrance to Berserk, a Viking village frozen in time.  Fight through blizzards and control the center bridge as you navigate this medium-sized map’s wooden buildings and craggy rock outcroppings.
  • Rumble
    • Fight it out among mechanized warriors in Rumble, and arena where giant robots battle to the roar of the crowd.  The small-to-medium-sized map funnels high-speed combat to the central pit with tight corners throughout the exterior of the stadium.
  • Empire
    • The fan favorite Call of Duty: Black Ops II Map, Raid, gets a fresh upgrade enhanced by the Black Ops III chained movement system.  The classic medium-sized map features an authentic Roman villa recreated by a modern-day eccentric billionaire and mixed sight lines enable any style of gameplay.
  • Gorod Krovi
    • In the latest episode of the Zombies experience ‘Gorod Krovi’, the Origins characters are hurled into an alternate, war-torn Stalingrad where Element 115 has wreaked havoc over a battlefield littered with the remnants of a battle between mechanized soldiers and deadly dragons controlled by Group 935.  Here, the Origins characters will face their most dangerous enemies yet.

    New game mode? Now that’s unexpected.

    • lebron jones

      so, it’s basically kill confirmed, but the tags don’t count until they’re returned to a base?

      that…sounds fun, though i wonder what percentage of players will merely camp the bases.

  • Aidan

    Nice! Trying this new gamemode ASAP

  • Clowns

    Dope! 😀

  • cool

  • Snackbar

    “Prophet’s tempest will now require one 1 shit to kill an enemy with Uplink Drone Armor active.”

  • Colinator01

    I saw that typo on the second prophet change, LOL

  • thechosenone3434

    Knew they would patch the Wunderwaffe 🙁

  • Alex

    So they still haven’t fixed the grand theft issue. Well that sucks but nice update

  • Stefan Lang

    “Resolved an issue where picking up dropped weapons or the Uplink Satellite Drone would cause the player’s camera to jitter.”

    FUCKING FINALLY!!! Now if they could fix that 7-8 people on one team in 6v6 and the glitchy ass Dark Matter camo when you have it on the KN-44 it’ll be smooth. ??

  • DnKJiVeShOcKzZ

    The new game mode is basically Grind from Ghosts right?

  • tertoly

    Anyone stuck on preparing to download 10% in PS4?

    • Crypto Gamer

      Yeah, I am stuck on 10% as well.

      • PandaMan

        That’s a software issue, not a game issue.

      • tertoly

        Got it fixed, all you need to do: pause the download and then start it then do a connextion test (from the ps4) then put it on rest mode for 30 mins. Thats how it worked for me


    “Fix for Players repeatedly receiving the KT-4 from the Magic Box after losing the weapon.” there they go again

    • Former

      Not sure I understood that…Does this mean no more than 1 can get it now?

      • DEMOLITION12

        it means that if you trade it in it won’t keep popping up over and over till you take it anymore. takes them that long to decide it’s something that needs to be fixed. retards

        • Former

          Ah…I never usually trade it in so I never noticed.

  • The Arena not penalized for quitting when your too outnumbered is about 3 games overdue.

  • Scott

    Maybe one day theyll fix the ridiculous amount of shots it takes to land a kill, the crazy recoil and the crap hit detection. Just makes it a nightmare to get a reasonable kd ratio. Until then the game is broken in my opinion. Previous cods didnt suffer from the issues mentioned.

    • richard

      all you have to do is get good, not that hard

      • SimplexxityGamingOfficial

        Agreed, Richard

    • Michael

      Why do so many of you whiners whine about your K.D ratio… Is that the only reason you guys play is to get a high KD…

      • Anthony Mitchell

        yes…yes it is. why are you whining about high kd players whining

    • djml9

      May i reccomend hardcore. At least it has sensible ttk.

    • Kobrah

      Git gud

  • Ak74u

    They need to nerf the tempest and the gravity spikes the two most annoying things in the game, then the game will be perfect imo

    • I would rather have them nerf the R.A.P.S

      • Sexy Mcgee

        BO3’s kill streak’s are hard to get, hard to get rid of, but do a lot of damage. MW3’s and AW’s kill streaks were easy to get, easy to get rid of, and useless. Killstreaks need to be like they were in MW2. Average difficulty to get, extremely easy to get rid of, very powerful.

      • djml9

        Definitely. Its drops way too many. You can have a group of 3 onloading on them and youll still all die because theres so many and they take so many bullets. Its practically 10 kills guaranteed.

    • PandaMan

      I mean the Tempest can’t really be nerfed, I would love to see how you think it could be. And I think the only thing they can change with gravity spikes is the radius.

  • MrTeWs

    why does my update say 12.745GB?? i was just on it this morning

    • Alexander Aurelius

      It’s downloading the dlc so tomorrow it won’t have to download, you can just sign in and play.

  • SimplexxityGamingOfficial

    Still no patch on the invisible zombie on Zetsubou with the KT-4/Masamune? Or was that already patched?

    • Former

      Believe that was addressed in last patch.

  • Spectacularity

    So is Treyarch finished with weapon balancing? I really don’t feel like the dredge or brecci WITHOUT attatchments is fair at all. WITH attatchments the problem becomes 1000 times worse. Just my honest opinion.

    • Kobrah

      Dredge is fine IMO, the brecci on the other hand… Nerf the shit out of that noobs ass gun!

  • PandaMan

    Still no nerf to the Banshii? Hell, I’d be ok if they would just put it under the sniper category.

    • Joel

      It’s not even overpowered though. It’s so easy to dodge

    • Former

      The gun is buns, dude…It’s a 50/50 chance of getting the kill even with good aim.

  • ThA x J0K3r

    Pleas fix the reapers shredded medals (rapidly kill 2 enemies with scythe) on Xbox one its been glitches since blackjacks main appearance for I have gotten those kills several times over and the bar will not fill so I can get my hero gear declassified
