A second patch for Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops has arrived through Steam. The update brings additional performance improvements, complementing the first patch that showed up shortly after the game's November 9 release. Here's what you can look forward to this time, according to the Steam website:
CPU performance improvements Zombie matchmaking improvements Fix for locked ADS after pressing shift-TAB to bring up Steam overlay Fix for ADS while holding shift as a sniper
In case you missed the official word on it, the first patch addressed "GPU hitching on certain graphics cards" and other issues like match-making problems.
I suppose this is standard fare these days, but I feel a little bit sorry for the folks who didn't see improvements after the first patch. This isn't a particularly long game, so I'm sure most players who grabbed it on release day have completed the single-player campaign by now. I guess that leaves the multiplayer.
