Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Patch Notes Detail All the Changes

The Volk gets nerfed and playlists have been added and removed.


A new update for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has arrived in time for this weekend's double XP weekend event, and Infinity Ward has now released the full patch notes.

The update deals primarily with multiplayer but also makes some tweaks and fixes for its Zombies in Spaceland mode. On the multiplayer side, scorestreaks used in Frontline mode now provide team score based on where the user is located. The Volk has been nerfed, doing less damage at range, having more recoil when aiming down sights, and being less accurate when fired from the hip. And Rigs are now unlocked as they should be when you unlock any of their packages (rather than just the first one).

On the Zombies side, you'll now see a splash screen when you rank up with a weapon. An exploit allowing weapons to be ranked up much more quickly than intended has been removed, and solo players won't find their match end if the Hoff is active.

A subsequent update made some further changes to multiplayer playlists. It adds Infected and Hardcore Free For All on all platforms, removes Hardcore Defender on PS4 and Xbox One, and adds Hardcore Kill Confirmed on consoles.

You can see the full list of changes in both of these updates below or in Infinity Ward's post on Reddit.

Even more detailed patch notes for the PC version's latest updates have been shared on Steam. This includes information on not just general gameplay fixes, but PC-only changes like the addition of an option to support raw mouse input.
