Its been a bizarre launch week for Treyarch. Call of Duty Black Ops II was released this past Tuesday and it has already blown the roof off of sales from just about any other game out there to date! But with such a huge release it isn’t with out its issues. Take a look as I go through the bugs, glitches, and network issues in this weeks Call of Duty Black Ops II Updates.
Double XP Launch Weekend!
Before I get to the ugly stuff lets talk about Double XP. If you have pre-ordered Call of Duty Black Ops II? You not only get the exclusive map Nuketown 2025 but for the opening weekend you will get Double XP! There is a caveat to this though. If you don’t redeem your “token” or download/install the Nuketown 2025 map – you won’t get it. So make sure you install Nuketown 2025 TODAY!
To install Nuketown 2025 (for the PS3)
- Go to the Playstation Store
- On the left hand menu scroll ALL the way down to REDEEM CODE
- Enter in the Code you found inside the box of your Call of Duty Black Ops II game.
- Download and install the Nuketown 2025 Map
Your all set now!
PS3 Network and Console Issues
Players have reported that they are not only having issues attempting to join games but they are having issues where the PS3 console just locks up and they are unable to play the game at all!
I know I am currently having issues where the PS3 will “hang” for about 45 seconds up to 2 minutes! when I select a menu item outside of a match.
Network/LAG – Unable to Join Servers
This is a known issue that PS3 players are reporting. Everything from poor connectivity to not being able to join games or even login to access the servers.
Apparently this is an issue with the Sony Login Servers being overwhelmed and not a Black Ops II issue (uh-huh). Hopefully they will be rolling out a patch soon to try and compensate for this. You can see that they are actively working on this issue. I don’t know if they will be able to actually fix it though.
Hotfix 20.135.19. I'm seeing Ground War games on PS3 get started a bit easier. You?

Glitches and Bugs
Bouncing Care Package
Although I do find this funny. I currently RUN the Care Package in my own setup and if this happened to me? I’d be pretty pissed off.

This is a strange bug that doesn’t hurt anyone but it is kind of strange. Sometimes after you go prone.. you’ll stay stuck that way. But to other players I don’t think they see this. They will still see you as standing up. So take care that you still will have no advantage if this glitch hits you.

All Weapons Glitch
Although I haven’t personally tested this. Apparently if you setup custom classes in Combat Training or a Private Match. When you go back and play an Online match? All of the setups will be available to you there. I’m sure they will be addressing this quick!
And no.. I won’t be linking on how to do this. Earn your XP don’t glitch for it!
What Do YOU Think of Black Ops II?
Well, besides all of the issues Treyarch is having with the release. What do you think of the game overall? Personally, I think its a blast (although the LAG sucks). I haven’t had a chance to get too deep into it as I have been busy with RL stuff. Let me know in the comments below what you think of Call of Duty Black Ops II!
