Treyarch has released the latest patch, and the details of what it fixes.

Published on Nov 22, 2012

Both PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers have had a number of issues with Black Ops 2 since its launch, but Treyarch has worked around the clock to get a patch ready to fix many of the bugs, glitches and freezes.

The Xbox 360 patch for Black Ops 2 is live now and fixes a number of cheats, exploits and - worst of all - issues with spawn locations.

PS3 gamers - who have had the crappy end of the stick when it came to Call Of Duty this year - will be pleased to hear issues with Black Ops 2 freezing, requiring additional players when a lobby is full, general matchmaking fixes and resolved many of the 'unable to connect' problems you've likely been experiencing.

So the patch that appeared on the 17 November for PS3 gamers should have resolved many of the issues. Let us know in the comments below if this isn't the case, and we'll try and investigate.

Xbox 360 Black Ops 2 Patch Notes:

  • Made infrastructure and performance improvements to Live Streaming.
  • Made streaming performance improvements to video playback in CODTV.
  • Addressed an issue where flight range parameters for airborne vehicles could be deleted in the middle of a match due to a network interruption. This fix resolves the following symptoms reported by the community:
  • Escort drone flying under the map
  • Inability to call in the Dragonfire
  • FHJ-18 weapon level is now increased by destroying Scorestreak vehicles and aircraft.
  • Care Package/AGR canister exploit has been addressed.
  • Patched a small map exploit in Aftermath.
  • Addressed a rare situation that would cause the Emblem Editor menu to overlap other menus.
  • Balance pass on spawn influencers to improve cases causing non-optimal spawning under certain conditions.
  • Improved performance for emblem uploads to prevent an occasional hang. If there is an error connecting to servers during an upload, you will now be able to re-try your save.
  • Emblems and Clan tags will now appear correctly on the Assault Shield when stowed on the back.
  • Addressed all reported UI error code messages.
  • Elite Clan Friends list no longer actively sorts players when their status is updated. The player list will refresh after closing and re-opening the tab.
