Black Ops Cold War’s Season 4 Reloaded update has disabled the pause feature in Zombies Solos, but a Treyarch dev has assured players that it will return very soon.

Black Ops Cold War’s Season 4 Reloaded update has officially arrived, which is set to bring the highly-anticipated Mauer Der Toten map once the content goes live on July 15. With the update already in, players get to experience the buffs to Sniper Rifles in Zombies and try to earn the Tactical Nuke Scorestreak in multiplayer.

However, the Zombies community has expressed their frustration over the new update disabling the pause button in solo matches, but Treyarch Community Manager Josh Torres stepped in to assure players that it will be fixed very soon.

Being able to pause games of Zombies is one of the main advantages of playing on either a private server or in solos. In the later rounds, the undead onslaught is relentless, so being able to pause the game for a short break is a welcome relief.

There’s no relief following the Season 4 Reloaded update though, as the pause button has been disabled. Reddit user EqualInteraction7209 shared the frustrating bug on the Zombies subreddit, which prompted a response from Josh Torres.

In the video, we can see the OP pressed the pause button, but the Zombies round carried on in the background, with the undead being just as lethal as ever. A user tagged Treyarch’s new ‘TreyarchCM’ account, which Torres is now operating from.

He replied, “We’re aware of this issue. Solo Pausing will return tomorrow with the launch of Season Four Reloaded.”

So, this frustrating issue won’t last long, with it being fixed when the Reloaded update officially goes live on July 14 at 9PM PT and the early hours of July 15 for the East Coast and Europe.

Torres also mentioned that they are “investigating an issue with Server Pausing and will have updates at a later date.” We’ll let you know once more details have been revealed.
