    • Anti-Up issue has been fixed
  • Issues with some challenges have been fixed
  • Bad ADS views with kill counter and/or clan tags put on weapon have been fixed
  • Increased the amount of score you get in Search & Destroy. Match bonus was only being displayed, but you were actually getting full amount. Full number should be showed now.
  • XP earned per kill in Search and Destroy has increased from  250 to 500.
  • Zombies: fixed issue where solo games were joinable

Treyarch has stated that they won’t be issuing patch notes for all of the Game Settings Updates, as many are minor and are back end stuff. They are committed to bringing more fixes. Vahn says to count on a lot of version changes.

Vahn said its too early for weapon changes, but they have heard feedback about weapons, including the Gorgon LMG. They will announce details when they have info on their plans for future updates.
