Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War April 29 Patch Notes Include Zombies Fixes, Gunfight Tournament

A new 2v2 Gunfight tournament is now live in Black Ops Cold War, along with some fixes for Zombies and multiplayer challenges.


Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's weekly update arrived on Thursday April 29, and this week introduces a new Gunfight tournament to the playlist, some small updates for challenges, and fixes for Zombies.

Cold War's 2v2 Gunfight tournaments are back with more exclusive rewards that are earned by winning and fighting your way through the tournament bracket. Luckily, Treyarch announced that you're still able to earn the tournament rewards from the previous Gunfight tournament, so you don't have to worry about missing out. You just need to fight through the bracket and win twice, as Gunfight tournament prizes are now queued. The tournament will be available from now until May 6.

In addition to Gunfight tournaments being added, the playlist refresh also switches the new Diesel map from a 3v3 Face Off playlist to 6v6 moshpit of modes. The Sticks and Stones party mode is also still available to enjoy.

Changes have also been made to Black Ops Cold War's multiplayer challenges. Players now retain progress for their multiplayer, daily, and season challenges even if they quit multiplayer matches. Today's update also fixes an issue where kills near a deployed trophy system were not counting towards the progress for the "Prepare and Survive" season challenge.

Just a few small issues were addressed for the Zombies mode, including stability fixes related to enemy spawns and the Phase Rift feature in Outbreak mode. Firebase Z also received a stability fix related to the Trials feature.
