Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War November 21 Update Released, Patch Notes Revealed

Just after Treyarch Studios released the first big Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War update this week, another patch has been released just a day later. Those who are just now getting used to Friday’s update that made a bunch of sweeping changes to weapons, Scorestreaks, and other parts of the game don’t have to worry about readjusting to everything in the new update though. This follow-up patch largely deals with bugfixes affecting different parts of the game like the multiplayer and Zombies modes, and the update should now be out for all platforms to download.

Treyarch announced the release of this second update on Saturday and said it would include some “additional bug fixes” for things like the Ring of Fire ability in the Zombies mode among other interactions between different things in the mode. The update deals almost exclusively with the Zombies mode with only a few other bug fixes released for the multiplayer mode and some general issues affecting the overall game.
