Black Ops 2 1.05 patch hits 360, PS3 users watch
Xbox 360 gamers will be glad to hear that Black Ops 2 1.05 patch has finally landed on their system today, although our readers playing the game on PS3 won’t be happy, which is due to the download being a few weeks away for this console. The Black Ops 2 1.05 update will include a number of fixes and gets the system ready before the first DLC map pack, so this is one reason the PS3 has to wait considering the DLC is a timed exclusive for Xbox 360.
Full Black Ops 2 patch notes for v1.05 – you will see a small image below this article, which you can click and open up the image on this page although you might need to click the full screen icon at the top right of the image after opening. The patch notes show a lot of fixes and improvements for the Xbox 360 version, although we’ll see in the coming hours if any of the problems claimed solved have in fact disappeared.
After clicking the image below you will notice the changes are under a number of headers, which include New Features and Improvements, Issues Addressed, Scorestreaks, Perks, Equipment, SMGs, Assault Rifles, LMGs, Shotguns, and Pistols. Some gamers will love to see their favourite weapon given increased damage, if only slightly, although there’s a number of downgrades to guns as well.
We would love to know if you are happy with the changes in the Black Ops 2 1.05 patch, and if you are on the PS3 system are you happy to wait an extra month for the patch? Some people claim that the Xbox 360 gamers are beta testing this update, which might be true to a certain extent but then there’s a number of PS3 players that need a fix for select freezing and crashing problems ASAP.
It is amazing that we just read an article from a couple of years ago when patch 1.04 released on the original Black Ops, which resulted in a lot of problems for PS3 players and freezing had been one of these issues. It is true most gamers on the PS3 are not experiencing any freezing problems, but you don’t need to look far to find thousands of players that are experiencing freezing with comments like “my Black Ops 2 was fine until patch 1.04 came out“.
Black Ops 2 spawn system on Xbox 360 and PS3 – we have been hands-on with the game for well over 100 hours, and the spawn system has a number of problems that most gamers have seen first hand. You will find some players spawn trapping in Black Ops 2, although patch 1.05 fixes some issues here.
In this latest update a player will not earn medals for lots of kills if they kill fast after dying and re-spawning. You can read about this change under “Issues Addressed“.
