Call Of Duty: WW2 Patch Makes HQ Work Properly And More

Here's what's new in Call of Duty: WWII.


A new update is out now for Call of Duty: WWII. Arguably the biggest part of it is that it makes the Headquarters social space work as intended. Immediately after launch, developer Sledgehammer Games made HQ a solo experience to help alleviate server stress issues, but with this update installed, you should expect to see other players there.

HQ being a solo experience was a big bummer because it meant that you couldn't easily compete in the 1v1 mode or earn rewards for doing things with other soldiers like opening loot boxes in front of them. Under the previous setup, you had to manually invite people to join your HQ session to do these things, but of course that was not ideal.

Today's new Call of Duty: WWII patch also includes fixes for crash scenarios, along with general server and connectivity improvements. The new update also nerfs the really good BAR weapon to add more recoil and resolves a problem where the game would display a black screen if the host left the match.

The new patch is out now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One; details on PC availability are coming later. You can see the full patch notes below, as posted on Reddit.
