Tre­yarch has released yet anoth­er update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and War­zone, which kicks off the dou­ble XP week­end event and also address­es some issues. A cou­ple of these prob­lems dealt with two of the game’s maps.

For starters, the dou­ble XP event starts today and ends on March 1st for both Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and War­zone. Play­ers can earn dou­ble XP and dou­ble weapon XP. This event coin­cides with the Sea­son Two launch, which has already begun. 

The map Raid has been adjust­ed so play­ers can no longer stand out­side of the intend­ed play zones around the bas­ket­ball court. Mean­while, Check­mate, has been fixed so play­ers can’t cap­ture the P3 Hard­point zone out­side of its boundary.

Prop Hunt has also made a return, being added to both the Apoc­a­lypse pool and Feb­ru­ary 25’s fea­tured playlist.

Black Ops Cold War’s Zom­bies mode has seen sev­er­al qual­i­ty-of-life update in this patch. This includes fix­es for sta­bil­i­ty issues relat­ed to prob­lems occur­ring with hell­hounds and objec­tives, pro­gres­sion issues, bet­ter ene­my pathing and address­ing issues with user interface.
