Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Update Fixes PS5 Problems and Invisibility Bug

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone got another update on Thursday following the start of Season 1. The patch notes released for the update were lighter in comparison to the ones that we’ve seen before, but they included some much appreciated fixes like a solution for a bug that was causing some Warzone players to become invisible. The patch notes are spread out throughout Warzone and the Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer and Zombies modes to touch most parts of the experience other than the campaign.

You can check out the latest patch notes below courtesy of the updated post on Treyarch’s blog about Season One. Some of the notes include things released in a December 16th update while others were made available in the December 17th patch pushed Thursday morning. You’ll notice that the patch notes include bugfixes for things like PlayStation 5 hitching as well as the frustrating invisibility bug mentioned before.
