Treyarch released a new Game Settings Update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on all platforms on Friday, February 5.

This game settings update in Black Ops Cold War follows the release of Firebase Z, Express MP map, and more in the February 4 patch update for the game.

The new game settings update includes changes to movement in MP, which fans first picked up on after the Feb 4 update. It now appears this update has fully rolled out and was intended.

The Feb 5 game settings update also includes new Prestige Shop content, custom game updates, Zombies weapon tuning updates, and more bug fixes.

This new game settings update is an in-game update and does not require a main patch. It went live at 10AM PT on Feb 5 on all platforms.
