Black Ops 2 patch expected today - details

Theater Mode, Escort Drone and Dragonfire fixes incoming

Treyarch has released details of a new Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 patch which "should" launch at some point today, although a Tuesday release has yet to be confirmed.


Taking to Twitter to address fan concerns (via MP1st), game design director David Vonderhaar outlined a few confirmed fixes due to be deployed in the update:

  • Theater Mode "UI error 226117"
  • Escort Drone glitch (Attacks owner while under the map)
  • Dragonfire glitch. (Won't deploy)

Vonderhaar also said Treyarch is researching a Care Package glitch following reports from some players that the Scorestreak bounces out of the map after falling to the ground. Any fix seems likely to be included in a later patch.

Last night Treyarch pulled fan favourite multiplayer map Nuketown 2025 from online playlists, saying it would be reserved for future "special events", but following a public backlash it quickly reinstated it in a new "fast-action playlist in the Bonus category called Chaos Moshpit".
