    Furst! No brecci nerf? come on

    • Diego Diniz

      Weapons are PRETTY WELL BALANCED. Noobs complaining everywhere…

      • jordanxbrookes

        The Brecci is not fucking balanced lmao.

        • Aceshigh87

          It has good range but it’s not impossible to beat if you stay back from it a bit. Outside of normal shotgun range (even if you’are still getting hit by it) you can usually win with pretty much any SMG or AR.

        • tuby

          Still Nice to use

        • The-_-Irishman

          I can beat a brecci with nunchucks on hardcore, get better at the game.

          • Fegasaruasㅤ

            If you’re playing a braindead kid you probably will, and I bet you have a negative K/D

          • The-_-Irishman

            Lawl, nah bro. Positive KD and w/l, dark matter, hero gear, I post motherships whenever I want. It’s a competitive game, I play to win instead of crying about shotguns.

          • [EV] BLISS

            You do realize the nunchucks is a one shot kill regardless if you’re on hardcore or a regular pub match right? Also there is no waaay you can beat a brecci on hardcore it’s a one shot kill, so either you been playing bots on recruit, or you just gettin lucky

          • The-_-Irishman

            Or I’m just smart and know how to run with a melee and out maneuver the people I decide deserve to get smacked with nunchucks, but by all means, go ahead and continue to contradict someone you know nothing about.

          • [EV] BLISS

            You just play noobs, that’s the most reasonable explanation

          • The-_-Irishman

            Lol ok buddy, I guess that makes me the best call of duty player in the world to say that every single person in every single game I’ve played were nooks. I appreciate the compliment. And 1v1 is a joke, you’d just camp in a corner like a bitch so you don’t get smacked around. Get out of here with your tough guy bullshit, your just another scrub on the bottom of the leaderboard.

          • [EV] BLISS

            Nah then 4v4 me scrub 🙂 I don’t get smacked I have G-fuel and I have a scuf Im unstoppable. Don’t mess with me kid

          • [EV] BLISS

            1v1 me You use the nunchucks and I use the brecci

          • Joshua Elias

            Man alot more guns than just the brecci is 1 shot kill in hardcore especially if your in melee range lol it’s not op in hc. I’d say in core it’s definitely op hardcore not so much

          • [EV] BLISS

            yeah I know a lot of other guns are 1 shot but were talking about the brecchi

          • BradyAlucard

            It’s not a competitive game.

          • Fegasaruasㅤ

            It’s not a competitive game, and what you post motherships on uplink? or get help from your friend to give you kills. smh people like you ruin the game

          • The-_-Irishman

            Not a competitive game? What would you call a game where one team wins and one team loses? Not to mention there’s a score that tells you who did better, and a leaderboard that catalogs who has done better than everyone else over time. And just so you know, I’ve said already I play hardcore. Where there is no uplink, I play everything except free for all, because anyone who plays FFA knows it’s nothing but corner camping pussies.

            The funny part is that you are talking out your ass because you think your some kind of Internet tough guy who thinks thier abilities in a game directly reflect their self worth outside the video game. You are in fact what is wrong with online gaming in general. I bet you cry lag and hackers every time you die, I bet you don’t even have enough friends to run a full team because after 2 games of you whining they delete your pathetic ass. That’s why your on here, where treyarc week never see it by the way, crying about nerfs and balances, your more concerned with crying about what you don’t like about the game instead of playing the game, getting better at it, v and growing the fuck up… you’re garbage kid, a scrub like you doesn’t even deserve to talk to me.

          • SamoanJoe007

            yup, what you said

          • Fegasaruasㅤ

            You play hardcore, you don’t experience the brecci so shut the fuck up. I bet you play with your fucking 10 year old relatives and probably camp back till you get streaks… I don’t complain about lag since it’s destined to happen, and I can run a full party whenever and pubstomp like you do, but I choose not since I’m not a fucking loser and can give the other team a chance.

            I don’t think I’m an Internet tough guy, also said NOTHING about abilities in a video game reflecting self worth, so you’re jumping to fucking dumbass points. You would know the Brecci is OP in core if you played it, and the core community is MUCH bigger than your 10% played community. Also realize this, if something is NOT balanced you can’t play the fucking game. And you’re over here responding to me? Obviously me complaining has brought a few people to post two paragraphs about the matter. I bet my K/D is better than yours…..

          • The-_-Irishman

            You are a sad angry little person. If a gun is OP in core, wouldn’t it be more OP in hardcore, where a pistol tob the toe can kill in 1 hit… so that argument is void. And I attacked your self worth because instead of making a legitimit argument about why your crying like a baby, you attacked my personal being, making accusations about me as a human and not about my gaming abilities. According to modern sociology, that reflects your own lack of self worth. Boom science bitch. And I never said I don’t play core, I don’t prefer it because I find core to be a bit… for pussies… yab know where you can take multidle lmg hits, then kill them with a sub machine gun in 2 hits…. yea that suits weak and you know in, in fact you probably play core because you either have bad aim or don’t know how to pay attention to your surroundings… and let’s face it, you can stop making up different excuses fir the types of people I play against, I play just about any Gane mode depending on the friends I am playing with, friends list which is full, is yours? I doubt it… so I play against a wide variety of players in hardcore and core, across just about every game mode so you can drop that whole argument as well. Get over it, I don’t even have to play you to know I’m better than you. Simply based off intelligence level of responses abs mannerisms, I bet you die once and get frustrated, so you die and dit and die getting more mad at every death, so mad your focus goes to shit and you eventually ragequit… just breath buddy, you’ll survive….

          • Joshua Elias

            Scrubs lol. Id agree man people always crying about stuff instead of actually getting better at the game could never understand it really. Guess it’s easier to cry and claim hacker than to get better at the game. I have a kid I used to play with that did that all the time won’t even play with them anymore everytime he’d die they’d go Oh that guy is hacking and it’s Iike no dude he’s just good and then he’d just keep crying about it. God I can’t stand that shit

          • BradyAlucard

            Get better at a casual game? Ignorant excuse.

        • BradyAlucard

          As well as the Kuda, VMP, M8, and Dingo. Everything else isn’t bad.

      • Gamerazor247

        The Brecci honestly is broken, and that shit was my hardest Shotgun to Gold, lol

        • Hitman

          I hear you on that one! I got diamond on shotguns last night…took forever!

      • Brecci is no where near being balanced

  • JeronimoPW

    “Fixed an issue that would cause the game to freeze at high rounds.”
    “Resolved a freeze that would occur during the final Easter Egg boss battle.”

    Really? Now that many people have played to get bored ffs


    • ConorGamingzHD

      You must have played it too much.

    • Beta test + real game > real game.

    • Filthy Prank’d

      Can you repeat that in english?

  • ShadowManAnthonii

    any word on what were the AS and Ragnarok Exploits?

  • Saint123q

    The Brecci is probably the most OP gun in BO3…the range on that thing is god like…the range needs to be dialed down as well as damage at range should be dialed down.

    • I agree 1000% !! They have yet to touch it . Just kids running scripts and spraying with it

    • ccrows

      If they nerfed the Brecci, (IMO) this game would be pretty close to being balanced.

      ^ I know some people wanna laugh and say VMP, but I don’t look at the VMP as OP. Overused? Yes OP? No.

      There will ALWAYS be an overused gun, but I do agree that the Brecci needs a nerf ASAP…

      • jt3z

        Yea VMP is no where near OP in fact its not even a lot of peoples best gun.

      • Sexy Mcgee

        Brecci is definitely OP. Sheiva is probably the best gun in the game but it at least requires some aiming ability so I wouldn’t go as far as saying it’s OP.

    • Nefireous

      The flinch should be toned down by the brecci and haymaker.

      The marshal needs a nerf. A dlc one shot kill shotgun with spread should never be viable.

  • Diego Diniz

    15GB??? got an error and now the file size is 780MB.

    • yousef

      wtf me to bro, but the file size is still 15GB!! how can i fix this?

      • RdJokr

        Do nothing. It’s just your PS4 reporting the total size of all updates the game has had thus far. It runs a check to make sure all updates are there, before downloading new files.

        • iTz Me ᴴᴰ

          Its 14.7GB for me and its downloading the whole thing. WTF why I need to download the previous updates again? and its stupid because I had do delete some stuff although I got 70GB free space

          • RdJokr

            It’s not downloading the whole thing. It’s running an integrity check of the update files you had to ensure there are no corrupted files. Once it’s done, it then actually starts the download of the new patch, then whatever files that were corrupted and not yet replaced.

          • iTz Me ᴴᴰ

            Ok thank you sir but why some people only have the update itself and some ppl like me have to do all that

          • RdJokr

            Probably something you need to setup inside your PS4.

          • Joshua Elias

            Truth everyone always thinks that the updates are huge where it’s just shows the full amount for all patches and only downloads the portion missing like you said. Idk why everyone thinks it actually downloads that full 15gb unless you deleted all patches it’ll never do that. Damn kids these days lmao

    • SamoanJoe007

      Now its saying 15GB (3,256,589 Microsoft Minutes Left)

  • Hawkzy

    “Rewrote a portion of the rendering system” Now that is what I like to hear

  • Hawkzy

    “Focused development effort to improving overall online networking performance and in-game stability,” I’m going to take a guess and pray that this is a solution towards the 4 bar (non connection related) skips or freezes that were occurring throughout the course of the game.

    • Mr.Blobby

      And it’s only taken them 11 months to MAYBE sort the performance/optimisation of the game. Had my PS4 since release and this is the only game that has made it full blue screen crash, not to mention it makes my PS4 sound like a jet engine when I load up the game. Not impressed this year TBH, gameplay was decent but was put off early on with the amount of bugs

    • Trinityvitaliaty

      Same.This should have been addressed months ago,after the update that caused it(the update was supposed to improve the graphics fidelity so it is fair to have given them some leway in time to correct the issue).

      • Santarbeasley2

        Google is paying 97$ per hour! Work for few hours and have longer with friends & family! !ct129f:

  • Ziyad salem

    15GB update ?
    ??? i quit i’m out :V Bf here i come :V

    • Zarky

      Its 1.5GB.

      • iTz Me ᴴᴰ

        Its 14.7 GB for me and its downloading the whole thing. WTF

  • TMZ Censored Me

    Lol. In other words, “we don’t want you to know what we did so we’re going to use fancy lingo in hopes no one will ask questions.”

    • ccrows

      As long as it gets fixed (and stays fixed) I honestly don’t care what they worked on…

  • CoDforever

    Miniature? Isnt it called Macro?

  • ghosts sucks

    Has anyone xb1 and ps4? If so, do you experience alot of lag on ps4?

  • TfarTn

    Black Lives Don’t Matter.

    • Go out in the streets and protest that ! Has nothing to do with COD ! Keyboard warrior

    • SamoanJoe007

      You idiotic fool, I will destroy you.

    • jt3z

      You’re right they dont…At least to the Black people protesting that, because if they did they would be protesting the thousands killed every year in Chicago. But hey there are no politics in that….

  • [EV] BLISS

    Well in revelations I was in round 63 and my ragnarok stopped recharging, so from round 63-76 I could never use them, it was pretty bs

    • Coloursxo

      You probably didn’t pick them back up

      • [EV] BLISS

        I don’t place them down I just slam it. Its the fastest way to get through rounds

  • BradyAlucard

    So this means that the idiots that would glitch in anti-gravity areas making the match illegitimate can no longer do it? Finally.

    • ccrows

      I’m on XB (finally get to play these on Thurs), which DLC4 maps had that broken BS?…

      • BradyAlucard


  • Max ammo

    Agreed too much focus on patching maps rather than gameplay this season, shame

  • Michael Romo

    Damn I loved having that one spot on Revelations with the wall-run because I could stay up there and go do something while i was in co-op

  • clercq1983

    what about the matchmaking… I can’t even count how many times it happens when I search a game, join one in progress and if that game is finished I’m in a empty lobby… Don’t know if it’s because of the DLC maps or general issue’s… But should put an option in it to enable or disable the DLC maps.

    • Siomion

      I can relate to that really bothers me

  • RobMelchor

    What’s the size for this patch on the PS4?


    Black Ops 3 , the game that still lags even on a Lan but hey , they fixed a gunsmith glitch….

  • W1LL1AM04

    “Discovered and eliminated a handful of behind-the-scenes errors causing the game to occasionally hitch under certain circumstances.” They finally fixed the lag?

  • iTz Me ᴴᴰ

    Why its 14.7GB?? Its downloading the whole thing too it cant be that huge

  • Chasr

    How big is the update

  • Chasr

    Like how many gb.

  • Yo mumma

    I’m amazed no one has asked for an RK5 nerf.. you know for all those kids who love to 420 no scope with their secondaries. Yeh, those fuckers.

  • dust&cheese

    Bruh if there was any chance I’d come back to this game, it’s gone now seeing that 15GB update file. dafuq? secretly added WaW remastered? Nah.

  • bre

    havent touched this game in 9 months, cant wait for battlefield 1
