Black Ops Cold War Dec 9 Update

Keshav Bhat

Treyarch has released a new Game Settings Update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on December 9.

This game settings update follows the new patch that went live on December 8 across platforms with numerous quality of life updates.

From Treyarch:

Today in Black Ops Cold War, we’ve addressed a few issues that managed to slip through the cracks following yesterday’s quality-of-life update: restoring the ability to vote on maps in playlists where it was unintentionally disabled, adding Nuketown ’84 back to the Onslaught map list in Zombies, implementing new stability fixes, and correcting a handful of UI bugs.

We’re also tracking two particularly tricky issues since yesterday’s update:

  • Diamond Camo progress is still appearing locked for some players, despite being earned.
  • Some Xbox players are seeing a “Trial Has Ended” pop-up message on the front-end menu.

Thanks for your patience as we continue to investigate these issues, and others. As always, you can check out live updates on some of the issues we’re tracking at our Trello board.

Also new today: we’ve added Miami to the Combined Arms map list, bringing the total 12v12 map count to four along with Crossroads, Armada, and Cartel. Zombies players will also now see unique Pack-a-Punch camos on their Ray Gun after upgrading it at the PaP in “Die Maschine,” so get packing!
