Second Black Ops patch further improves performance

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.

      Well, to me it seems this new patch killed the game. Every few matches it just freezes. Was working fine up until yesterday. By fine I mean it wasn’t freezing.

        I hear there is a saying for people who say something obviously wrong; they’re stupid.

      I finished the SP on thursday! The MP is like a patched and balanced version of COD MW2, that is a good and a bad thing. Definately doesn’t feel like a 60 dollar purchase anymore.

        Call of Duty 4 was 40 dollars when I bought it and that felt like about the most I should have paid. 60 dollars does seem high for MW2 and Black Ops, especially considering I tend to only play the single-player campaigns.

      Would be nice to see what those graphics cards were. All I read it was pointed at AMD… ??? But I did play it before the patches and if you don’t have modern hardware…. more than 2 years old you might as well not buy the game. It played fine on higher end stuff…… dual cores NOT included. Who makes up this minimum spec stuff ?
