Treyarch are readying another patch for Call of Duty: Black Ops, the patch is due to be released soon and will include the following fixes:

    Issues Addressed:

  • • Resolved several issues with parties getting disbanded unexpectedly.
  • • Updated handling for UPnP-enabled routers to improve matchmaking conditions where users had strict or moderate NAT types. Also added in-game communications so that all players are aware of their NAT type in the Player Match party lobby.
  • • Addressed issue that prevented the “Load MP by Default” option from saving when other specific option combinations were set.
  • • Prevention of exploit that allowed players to keep custom classes and killstreaks after prestige.
  • • Addressed an issue where Flak Jacket Pro would not always protect against ground fires left by Napalm Strikes.
  • • Prevention of users losing their killstreak reward when switching classes at the start of a new round in round-based game modes.
  • • Addressed an issue where the incorrect perks would appear when spectating another player under certain circumstances.
  • • Added round start explosive delay to China Lake grenade launcher to give it the same round start limitations as other explosives.
  • • Contracts will now reset when the player Prestiges.
  • • Prevention of Valkyrie rocket exploding upon release under rare conditions.
  • • Prevention of Gunship failing to give player full control under rare conditions.
  • • Prevention of an issue where a player will get teleported outside the map boundaries under very specific circumstances.
  • • Additional security measures to enhance detection and banning capabilities.Gameplay Tuning:
  • • Limit the ability to re-roll supply drops using Hardline Pro to Care Packages only, no other killstreak drops.
  • • Added a negative influencer to all spawn points to decrease the chances of spawning near an enemy. This will further improve spawning protection on top of previous updates.
  • • Additional sound mix tuning for Ninja Pro users – increased ranges and volume of enemy footsteps, and removed player footstep sounds on concrete material types.
  • • Increased headshot multipliers for sniper rifles. Sniper rifles with suppressors equipped will now always be ensured one-shot kill headshots.
  • • Subtle increase in sniper rifle accuracy when scoping in.
  • • Added a render delay to the red diamond player indicators that appear when controlling the Gunship, Valkyrie Rocket and Chopper Gunner. When a player first spawns, this will not appear for a period of time.
  • • Additional minor reductions in knife lunge.

This is good news for those who are wanting an even better experience. My thought on the game can be read here.
