Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War May 27th Patch Notes

Anoth­er week has gone by and more changes have come to Black Ops Cold War as the ’80s Action Hero Event con­tin­ues. These patch notes also include a playlist update, which intro­duces Ram­bo’s Gun Game, a dou­ble XP event and a free access weekend.

There are not that many fix­es with­in this update, but most of them have to deal with Mul­ti-Team Elim­i­na­tion. The oth­er major­i­ty of the fix­es have to do with Zom­bies mode. Most of the patch has to do with playlist changes.

How­ev­er, there is one of fix out­side of these two sec­tions. One is an issue with play­ers’ Sea­son Lev­els being capped at Lev­el 182 in the score­board and in the After Action Report. Oth­er than that, only slight changes have been made otherwise. 

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is also get­ting dou­ble XP this week­end, begin­ning some­time today and run­ning through June 1st. This is a Black Ops Cold War-spe­cif­ic event. The game will also be free to play across all plat­forms for the dura­tion of the week­end, includ­ing mul­ti­play­er and Zom­bies Out­break mode.
