Cold War March 11 patch notes: Playlists, MP & Zombies Bug Fixes

Published

on

Treyarch has released a new Game Settings Update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on all platforms on March 11.

This new update brings a refreshed playlist across MP & Zombies, and includes a new Patch Notes screen in game.

This Game Settings Update adds the ability to see patch notes in the game itself as part of the Message of the Day. In addition, Treyarch has temporarily removed Prop Hunt to add new maps and updates soon.

Full breakdown on what’s new from Treyarch:

ST. PATRICK’S STOCKPILE

Get ready to go green! In celebration of St. Paddy’s, we’re launching the holiday-themed St. Patrick’s Stockpile mode in Multiplayer today through 10AM PT, March 18th.

Eliminate your enemies and collect the Shamrocks they drop, grab as many as you can, and deposit your stash at the Pot o’ Gold to earn points for your team. The first team to hit the score limit wins, but be careful… you’ll drop your entire stockpile if you go down!

Keep an eye out for our more classic take on Stockpile arriving next week after St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone. We’re huge fans of this mode, and hope you enjoy it as much as we always have since it was introduced in Black Ops III as Fracture.

PROP HUNT UPDATES INCOMING

Prop Hunt is taking a short break while we refresh the prop selection on our existing maps and add support for two more maps later in the season: Satellite and our next 6v6 map, Miami StrikeFace Off and Gunfight Blueprints also return to the Featured Playlist rotation this week.

IN-GAME PATCH NOTES

Players will also now see the new Patch Notes tab at the Message of the Day screen, keeping everyone up to date on the latest additions to the game. Simply navigate to the set of notes you’d like to read and scroll through to see what’s new.

Today’s update also includes new fixes and gameplay improvements for Zombies and League Play, a new UI feature in Create-a-Class, and more. Here’s what’s included:

Black Ops Cold War players are not happy with new LAPA SMG

The LAPA is a new SMG for Black Ops Cold War in Season 6, but fans have complained that it may not be as useful in-game as they hoped.

LAPA in Black Ops Cold War

Black Ops Cold War Season 6 is the last hurrah for the latest CoD entry before Vanguard takes center stage. Unfortunately, the new LAPA SMG has players talking for the wrong reasons since its addition in the last major update.

Black Ops Cold War Season 6 is the last chapter before the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard on November 5.

Developers added a whole host of new content for Season 6, from a new Battle Pass to a host of Halloween-themed challenges.

Unfortunately, not all of the new additions have gone down well among the community, with the new LAPA SMG in particular user under fire from fans.

LAPA in Black Ops Cold War

Reddit user PartyImpOP posted expressing their confusion on what the purpose of the LAPA is when its characteristics are compared with other weapons in the same class.

“…the only thing this thing has is relatively good handling, which is hardly even significant considering all SMGs carry that trait anyways,” said the user.

“It’s the slowest killing SMG, and depends on headshots to simply equal the body shot TTK of other SMGs, and has a very slow muzzle velocity to the point where it becomes almost unusable.”

They go on to say that the LAPA is a less effective version of the Milano 821 or AK-74u, meaning that there is little reason to choose it in multiplayer modes.

PartyImpOP also slammed the rest of the Season 6 content, such as “the worst weapon in the Call of Duty history” in the Battle Axe.

Other players were quick to respond to the post, calling the new additions in Season 6 “filler” content at the end of the game’s life in the spotlight.

“Honestly, they were probably just afraid to release more broken weapons right before they abandon ship on this game,” added another Reddit user.

Warzone and Black Ops Cold War The Haunting event challenges rewards

While The Haunting event has been a hit for the most part for Call of Duty fans, it’s clear that some of the new content is living up to expectations.

With so little time before Vanguard drops, it remains to be seen if Raven will take steps to make the LAPA more useful.
