It won’t be an exaggeration to say that the return of Zombies mode has played a huge role in the success of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War.

Furthermore, they have also addressed platform specific issues like players crashing out of the Outbreak game mode on Xbox consoles in the latest update.

Bugs and glitches are inevitable, even for AAA titles like Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War. To worsen the situation, certain players leave no opportunity to exploit bugs as soon as they get discovered.

Ever since the arrival of Season Two, players were facing difficulties while using the Ray Gun. Apparently, any self-inflicting damage through the weapon completely broke the armor of the carrier.

Accidental shots leading to self-damage are very common in splash weapons like the Ray Gun. Luckily, Treyarch has now limited the amount of splash damage of the Ray Gun and other weapons in the game with the first post-Season Two update.

COD Zombies HQ thanked Treyarch for patching the Ray Gun in a recent video.

The Maxis Lost Easter Egg arrives on the map with Season Two

A few weeks ago, the community discovered an Easter Egg in the loading screen for Die Maschine. Interestingly, the ID number on Samantha Maxis’ badge was a reference to popular mystery TV series Lost.

Following the latest update, players can now access the Maxis BND as a regular intel piece behind a sandbag barrier in Golova in the Outbreak mode.

Reddit user u/brintaxx shared the Easter egg with others on r/CODZombies recently.
