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

Keshav Bhat

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:


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 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.


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:
