Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's latest update is here and it brings some much-needed changes. This is the second update to release within two weeks. The patch was released on April 27 and it brought the Diesel 24/7 Playlist. Now enjoy the map in 6v6 game modes all the time.

The next Gunfight Tournament is also planned to go live from April 29. The Face-Off playlist is returning on Diesel, Mansion, and on the rest of the Gunfight maps. You can access the Face-Off playlist from the Featured Playlist in the menu. Meanwhile, the fan-favorite Stick and Stones mode will continue.

The patch also made sure that players can’t use Ballistic Knife in Snipers Only Moshpit playlist that was enabled on April 26.
