Thanks to everyone who participated in Weekend 1 of the Black Ops Cold War Beta on PS4! The data and feedback we’ve received so far has helped the team to refine the experience for Weekend 2 and for launch.

We’ve already made several updates and fixes since the start of Weekend 1:

 

GAMEPLAY

  • Adjusted tuning on the Duster Stock attachment to prevent faster sliding than intended.
  • Increased TDM score limit from 75 to 100 for better match pacing.
  • Updated the Assassin Perk description for clarity. (Updated Oct. 9)
  • Slightly reduced damage output of the Milano 821 SMG. (Updated Oct. 9)
  • Investigating adjustments to the cooldown on the Spy Plane to help limit their numbers in the sky at one time.
    • Update: The team is still investigating this issue to make adjustments for launch.

 

GENERAL

  • Adjusted conditions for joining in progress to prevent players from joining matches that are about to end.
  • Moved VIP Escort exclusively to the Featured playlist.

    • Update: The team is still investigating an issue where a controller can become unresponsive when loading into a match.
