Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Adds Long-Awaited Feature Just to Remove It Hours Later

Treyarch has released a new Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War update alongside patch notes. The update dropped this morning on all platforms -- PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S -- and it didn't do much of note, though it did add a long-awaited feature only to remove it a few hours later. More specifically, after finally adding Gunsmith Customs to the game with the update, Treyarch has announced the feature has been "temporarily disabled," or in other words, removed.

At the moment of publishing, it's unclear when the feature will be back, but Treyarch did confirm it will let everyone know when it's back. In the meantime, players can check out the new Rivas Operator also added today.

"Gunsmith Customs has been temporarily disabled while we perform maintenance on the feature," writes Treyarch. "Thanks for your patience -- we'll update everyone when it's back up.

As for the rest of the update, it doesn't do anything but make a few changes to Zombies. That said, for a full and official rundown of it, check out the full patch notes below:
