    phew, they didn’t fuck up any weapons yet!

    • http://www.facebook.com/TheNeoReaper Chad Eugene Rash

      Mp7 is being looked at. just a little fyi.

      • SivertOlsen

        Thank god!

      • Sensou-Ookami

        I think the MP7 is fine in this game, but then again really believe that it is who is good with it that makes it deadly, just like every other gun, except for the FMG9 looking gun, SMGs are not mean’t to be 3 burst in my opinion, it is kinda weak.

    • TOShokking

      I still reckon that the KSG was better as a high-cap standard shotgun in MW3 than a slug-shotgun in Black Ops 2. Perhaps they could have given us a choice between which ammo type we want? (I still think it’s relatively good though)

  • mrdougan

    so is this the 20.149.7 patch that pc has had since they took nuketown away or a newer one

    and we can expect a PS3 patch…when??

    • http://mp1st.com/ David Veselka

      Just updated the piece. The november 17 PS3 patch included the same fixes, in case that’s what you were wondering :)

  • WarHero

    Great,now improve servers and lag compensation or better yet GET DEDICATED SERVERS. Not dissing on you Treyarch, it’s Activision.

    I want them to fix the knife lunge with ballistic knife.

  • http://twitter.com/DDaron Tom

    The improved matchmaking means you get matched up with people in a 1000 mile radius no matter what.

  • JasJw

    Fix lag comp. broken perks like awareness. Make snipers a 2 shot kill 1 to the head.

    • maseephus

      Snipers are perfect. They should be the most powerful to use. They are definitely slower and jankier than MW3 snipers so I think they are well balanced. I doubt you’ve even used and tried one for yourself. As for Awareness I have not noticed it being “broken.” The lag comp is definitely screwed up.

    • Sensou-Ookami

      The sniping is fine, seriously, I don’t want it to be like Black Ops 1 again. Awareness is not broken either. Lag is a bit annoying though.

      • http://twitter.com/ihotnatured David

        What screwed up the sniping in Black Ops was the hit detection. The L96A1 when you shoot it moves a lot and the sniping was even worse ‘cos the hit detection. Now is more noticeable that the hit detection is way better than Black Ops’s.

      • charlieb

        lets put it this way the snipers are fine in this game but the maps make sniping way to easy, no other cod has had a average sniping range that’s this close so my opinion is start making the maps larger that will fix the gun imbalance

    • MyBodyIsReady

      Snipers a 2 shot kill? You’re kidding right?

      May as well just use an assault rifle!

      • Peter Aikin

        Yeah, what is this, Halo?

    • Astrong

      agreed awareness needs to be looked at. Its pretty much a useless perk right now.

    • Olaf

      If you show me a sniper that is laying down in cover and actually sniping then I would be amazed. most of the snipers I run into are in the middle of the street and they are jumping and running at full speed and no scoping. Show me that in real life where a sniper is running down a street in Afghanistan with a sniper rifle, it is absurd and takes away from any cred this game has. Sniper rifles should have reverse range. Like a shotgun takes 1 shot to kill at close, 2-3 for medium, and can’t kill at long range. So a sniper should be 1 shot to kill at long, 2 to kill at medium, and 3-4 or they can’t kill at close range at all.

      • Mali

        I snipe in Raid all the time. Just sitting in the garage behind the expensive cars.

      • MannDup

        So… Talk about realism, then say a Sniper shouldn’t kill at close range…

    • THEMSASBOYZ CLAN

      Your not a sniper are you sir? I will now vanish instead of trolling you.

    Only problem I have with the game now that hitdetection is (mostly) working, is the damn spawns! A lot of the time when you kill someone, they will spawn right behind you, even on the huge maps. I just don’t understand. Is that part of their, lets make the game as fast-paced as possible?

  • Ricky

    They said nuketown was 24/7 7 days a wheek never closes and now it’s gone :/ and the theatre is awful it never records full games and when it dose it ussually freezes my Xbox what a waste of £45

    • Peter Aikin

      That’s because Xbox is old and outdated. It can barely play BO2 zombies without lag, because of all the fire. Eventually, they’re gunna need to make a new system, or get stuck with everyone migrating to PC IMO.

      • http://twitter.com/Clay_the_Human Geekasaurus Wrex

        Can’t play without lag BC P2P+ Lag Comp. Invalid argument considering PC has dedicated servers plus the Xbox 360 version is far more optimized of the two console versions. Won’t deny it being outdated though.

  • TheRugbyGod

    Lag Compensation. It needs to be dialed in to be closer. My only major issue.

    The M8A1 needs to be more consistent sometimes it takes two trigger pulls to down an enemy and other times of takes 4 to 6 really disappointing for those who like burst fire weapons.

    • Astrong

      they just need to take out the burst weapons period…they always seem to be in another league compared full auto weapons there always OP

    #Bullshit Fix the shotguns it’s just one shot and we’re dead it gets annoying -__-

    #Bullshit and a problem that many people seem to have it takes waaaay to many bulets to kill one guy when I get double teamed and there both spread apart by a little bit there’s no way you can kill both of them maybe just one if your lucky :/

    You = Dead

  • Dcgamer

    #bullshitlastone sorry I have many complains but I’m not alone on all of these. When you shoot first you die I always shoot first but die this call of duty made it hard to keep a good k/d ratio and jumping when people shoot to doge enemy bullets -__- now come on that’s unrealistic and drop shoting another unrealistic thing – Thank you for listing to all my complains I’m sure if you fix these things many others will be happy as I said Im not alone on this. Thanks you!

  • Madb

    Why can a sniper be moving and your still moving and yet they shoot where you are and it’s a damn instant kill try firing any big cal rifle and see how accurate you are doing that

  • Charles

    Are they going to BRING BACK NUKETOWN 2025 24/7 as a constangt playlist? I bought the game just for that purpose!! The Chaos moshpit is really stupid. Hardly ever play it. I WANT NUKETOWN 2025 24/7 playlist back!!!!

  • dremaddog

    as far as awareness is concerned i feel like they knew they were not going to make it work i feel from a marketing prospective they had to say it was going to be in this game because of all the MW3 sound whoring players that might not have bought the game if they knew there wasn’t a perk that would give turtle beach owners an advantage. as far as the lag they do need to fix that there’s no excuse for a mutiplayer game to not try to the best of there ability to make the playing field even for all players that’s doesn’t make sense. also the spawning needs to be fixed a player playing team death match should not spawn with the enemy even if this was the best game ever the above issues can make it the worse game.

  • dremaddog

    has anyone dropped a care package and when the crate hit the ground it bounced 200 feet up in the air this has happen to me 3 times on two different maps Yemen and drone

  • http://www.facebook.com/joseph.richardson.1614 Joseph Richardson

    wow first of all i’ve yet to meet a sniper that runs around and snipes, so sniping should take 2 shots to kill.Also the shot guns are over powered and camping damn i can’t even run and gun, because the reaction speed does not matter damnit………

  • http://twitter.com/thespringbuck Chris Davies

    Fix the lag so I can play without getting shot with around corners oh an fix the Theatre mode too please, it would be nice to watch a full replay of a game without it stopping 2 minutes into the video. Thanks!

  • http://www.facebook.com/joe.norman.7127 Joe Norman

    Don’t mean for this to be a huge complaint, but if this game needs to grow and get better this is what needs to happen.

    First off patch the glitch in Tranzit their is a shortcut to the Town where a player can crouch and not be harmed by zombies. Yesterday I was live streaming and some players had randomly joined my game after a few players lagged out and were just instantly racking up points after I had finally found them and told them I was streaming and they would be reported they left the game.

    Also the hit indication with snipers in zombies is way off pretty much unless you no-scope them.

    Now onto multi-player the hit indication is way off.

    Lag compensation which is pretty much obvious to everyone.

    Getting shot around corners is terrible.

    Over powered sub-machine guns as an armorer and dealing with weapons daily I realize that all will kill, but the MP7 is not a sniper rifle.

    Quick-scoping should definenitly go the game has to have a sense of realism, don’t get me wrong it looks goo but that is not what it is made for its for precision, breath hold, common sniper knowledge, not 4 pop shots and a kill.

    No one aims in the game at all, its just close your eyes spray and hope you get a kill.

    Fast-mag needs to work slightly faster with assault-rifles.

    Getting kicked from party lobby and cannot get back in unless you sign in and out,as well as screens flickering both in zombies and multiplayer.

    The spawn system is terrible I like the idea of the close quarters, but not so close that the player I just killed gets to spawn directly behind me and knife me.

    The commando/ panic knife needs to go or be decreased.

    Besides all this I like what was done with the game and all but if you want to make a competitive game this needs to be fixed. Besides this game truly can not be competitive, until players start playing competitively (which very few do) which no one can control but them.

    Thank You for your time.

  • rada

    all my emblems were deleted randomly?….any clues

  • Khue

    How about fixing all the gun? I dont know about you guy but it always the second guy that shoot that get the kill it fucking ridiculous and bullshit sick of that shit …. Corner lag can be fixed too I dont know how many time i turn a corner and still end up dying and watchig the kill cam and it show a hit marker in mid air not me i’m long gone but no since that bullet touch that spot i was at i will die… PS3 platform

  • SizzlingEel5070

    as with all the COD games the maps are SHITE FOR SNIPING!…way too small, it takes the piss when you cant take a proper vantage point and be out of harms way from the spray and pray crew. Real sniping is done at over a thousand yards. …. anyone quick scoping and no scoping and twirl jump dance shooting should just explode when they pull the trigger.

  • aaron

    is there a way i can manually download the update

  • Tristenfinley

    Ok…. So I’m a blue skull with five tallies in zombies. I ldidnt play for 3 days and when I came back I was a skull with three tallies. I’ve played 3 games and got 25+ on all three and I still don’t have four tallies yet! Fix your game activision. :( also they need to fix the glitch were the game doesn’t count if one person leaves. Got to round 36 and 1 guy left on round 30 and it didn’t count. We were in public match.

  • OG_Kush

    My PS3 freezes while play BO2 and something needs to be done about panic knifing….

  • http://twitter.com/BrandonMacheteG brandon grob

    Ok, first off, I agree with just about everything. The lag, hit detection, smg’s are way overpowered. They shouldn’t outrange a sniper, let alone someone using an AR. First shot should get the kill when in a firefight. It’s obvious. I don’t think shotguns are too huge a deal. Maybe just a small tweak. As for sniping, most of you are funny. The sniper is at a huge disadvantage. When ever do you notice a sniper getting crazy high kills and low deaths?lol Snipers rarely land a no-scope and quickscoping isn’t that quick. If anything snipers need a bit of a tweak to help better them. But I do fine with a sniper. The fact is though, it’s not that hard to quickscope a guy when he’s close. And I mean like 12 or so feet away and I mean in real life. Trained snipers only though. But you’d be surprised how quick a sniper can scope in and hit a target accurately at a good distance. I would suggest trying it out.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ShawnDuesling Charlie Shawn Duesling

    it seems to me. the knife issue needs fixed, you swing, you miss, they swing you die. or just blast you in the head, its almost pointless to knife because you miss most of the time.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ShawnDuesling Charlie Shawn Duesling

      on that note, ive seen kill cams where people try to stab, and miss a few times, and end up having to resort to using the gun to finish off a player after 3 knife trys,.

  • Some one who actually cares

    Fix the lag, and the pistols are way over powered. I’m sick of hit markers then getting killed by a pistol at long range.

    why when istart playin black opps 2 my whole system cuts off. . but when i play another game nuthin happens. . igot the white xbox the one before the black ones that came out. . wTF!

  • jdubbs926

    Fix the lag comp!!! None of theses improvements even matter if you’re constantly getting shot through corners and by people who don’t even show up on the screen (like when some one walks out of a doorway that’s 10 ft in front of you and kills you, but doesn’t even show up on screen… but they show up in the kill cam?!?!?) Also, fix the hit-detection! Only way to get a hit marker is to aim a foot or two off of your target… WTF!?!?!?!?!?!?! Melee is also COMPLETELY WORTHLESS, they should fix it or just get rid of the melee all together…

    To say Awareness is fine is a joke, why put it in the game if it has no value, and just like everyone else I hate being through a doorway or around an corner and hey guess what I’m still dead. It’s been like that for the last 3 games. And let’s not mention all the “baby Monitors” suck as target assist and MMs and all the crap like that. If you can’t aim well practice for peets sake. Ok sorry. I’m done. lol

    • TOShokking

      The idea is that everyone can use it though. And they exist (or quite possibly will do) in real life, by or in 2025. So really, they’re there because they are relevant to the time period it’s set in, so they have every right to be there. Just use Cold Blooded so they can’t see you if it’s a problem.

    Really this quick scoping crap gotta go.. It should be called instant scoping or flat out cheat scoping. You can’t even raise a assult rifle and shoot it that fast, much less a 5 foot long .50 cal rifle.. To see people running around with Diamond encrusted sniper rifles tells me something is wrong..
