In the most recent patch notes, Treyarch announced three new personalization features coming to the game alongside fixes and improvements for multiplayer and zombies. Firstly, the new ‘Calling Card Showcase’ feature lets players choose up to three calling cards that they can display. This feature has existed in previous Black Ops games and can be accessed using the player identity menu.

Next, “Players can now use the ‘Set as Favorite’ option in Create-a-Class to designate a target class for the Quick Equip feature.” Weapons equipped through the ‘Quick Equip’ feature will automatically appear in this class.

Lastly, players will now be able to inspect the operator models of fellow players in their lobby. In addition to this, the Operator Wolf finally makes his way to the store. The operator honed his hunting skills in the bayous of Louisiana. He joined the force at the age of 18 following the death of his brother.

Treyarch has also fixed rampant multiplayer, stability, and user interface issues. Firstly, they addressed a pop-up that said “Quitting with 3 or fewer players on your team will result in a loss and a ladder point penalty” would randomly appear when attempting to join a friend.

Secondly, Treyarch fixed two newly discovered crashes. One related to players joining a match in progress in Search and Destroy and the other being a rare crash in Mult-team caused due to the radiation clouds. The game developers have also “addressed an issue where attackers/defenders could spawn on the same spawn side in CDL Custom Games.”
