It’s been a week since Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Sea­son Three was released and Tre­yarch has rolled out anoth­er new update. This patch irons out some crash­es and bugs that have popped up since the sea­son launch. There are also var­i­ous oth­er adjust­ments, includ­ing the gen­er­al “sta­bil­i­ty fixes.”

One of the biggest adjust­ments is to the lat­est par­ty mode that was added to Black Ops Cold War, Stick and Stones. This fix was for an issue that caused tom­a­hawk kills to reward a play­er with 100 points, far too many for one kill. Tom­a­hawk kills should now be reg­is­ter­ing 50 points per kill. The update also address­es a prob­lem with Fin­ish­ing Moves not count­ing as melee kills.

Zom­bies is also get­ting a bunch of fix­es, includ­ing a rather aggra­vat­ing bug involv­ing the score­board. The issue cor­rect­ed the score­board los­ing func­tion­al­i­ty or not dis­play­ing the right information.

The notes also con­firmed fix­es for crash­ing that occurs in Out­break mode, specif­i­cal­ly when migrat­ing hosts dur­ing an objec­tive. Final­ly, the Cross­roads map has been removed from the PlaySta­tion-exclu­sive Onslaught mode for maintenance.
