It looks like there are more tweaks to come where Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is concerned, and the latest 1.17 update is now available on the Sony PS4 as well as Xbox One. The 1.17 update for the Sony PS4 will weigh in at a whopping 1.4GB, so make sure that there is enough storage space on your console before you go downloading it. In this latest Black Ops 3 update, one will be able to find changes made to the multiplayer as well as Zombies mode.
For multiplayer gaming, there have been several general fixes such as improved stability with group invites, fixing an issue which prevented Scorestreak progress from resetting on death during CWL game modes, better stability when switching game modes, a focused development effort to improve overall online networking performance and in-game stability, which comprise of and not limited to the likes of discovering and eliminating a handful of behind-the-scenes errors which cause the game to occasionally hitch under certain circumstances, rewriting a portion of the rendering system to streamline CPU performance.
For the Gunsmith, the Black Market Attachment Variants will no longer be returned to default in Gunsmith after playing a match.
In terms of maps, Rupture will see updates to Manticore functionality that will be reflected in the Manticore score and XP values, an adjusted 3rd person camera during ADS, not having Manticore collide with prone teammates, an adjusted the Kill-Cam when one Manticore kills another Manticore, and having Annihilator and Gravity Spikes do more damage to the Manticore. Exploits which allowed players to access unintended areas of the map have also been fixed.
For Citadel, players are now no longer able to access unintended areas of the map, while for the Miniature map, adjustments have been made to the Hardpoint capture zone near the southern ice-box. Lethals, Tacticals, Scorestreaks, and the Uplink Satellite are no longer part of the pool noodle, and exploits where players were able to access unintended areas of the map have also been patched up.
In the Outlaw map, there have been adjustments made to the Hardpoint capture zone in the Hotel.
Zombies is another huge area that has its fair amount of fixing done. Zetsubou No Shima will not have spiders spawn incorrectly during natural play, while in Gorod Krovi, the issue where players could lose their equipped weapons after being revived has been fixed nice and proper. In Revelations, there are now various progression breaks during the Easter Egg, and the game no longer freezes at high rounds. Hot joining issues have also been solved, and so is the issue with the Level 1 challenge completion.
In a nutshell, there has been a whole boatload of issues that have been fixed with 1.17 update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. We have also learned that the Black Ops 3 DLC 4: Salvation which PS4 owners have enjoyed for some time now is also available on the Xbox One and PC, now how about that?
