Bugs in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War don't seem to go away. Treyarch released another update yesterday to address some underlying issues. These include the ones introduced by the previous update.

The new patch fixed the bug where players lost their ability to vote on maps. It also solved several crash issues and improved overall game stability.

But the December 9 Patch was not just about bug fixes. It made a few changes as well to the game modes. Miami is now on Combined Arms game mode and Nuketown ’84 is now playable on Onslaught mode in zombies. Speaking of zombie mode, there are now special pack-a-punch camos for Ray Gun.

Developers haven’t fixed all issues, however. They are still working on two more problems. One is for Xbox Players where the “Trial has ended” message pops up on the front-end menu. And two, the Diamond Camo not unlocking even after completing its challenge.
