Detailed through the official website the following changes have been made to the game:


  • Adjusted tuning on the Duster Stock attachment to prevent faster sliding than intended

  • Updated the Assassin Perk description for clarity.
  • Slightly reduced the damage output of the Milano 821 SMG.


  • Adjusted conditions for joining in progress to prevent players from joining matches that are about to end.
  • Moved VIP Escort exclusively to the Featured playlist.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where a controller could become unresponsive when loading into a match.
  • Fixed an issue with multiple Optics being misaligned in ADS and blocking the player’s view, including Snappoint, Diamondback, and Hawksmoor attachments.
  • Fixed a bug where players would get “UI Error 66156” when selecting “Add Activision Friends” from the Recent Players menu.
  • Fixed an issue where other players’ names were not visible in the pre-match lobby.


  • Fixed crashes that could occur during the Best Play in a VIP Escort match.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur while selecting Operators in the front-end menu.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when a SAM Turrent missile hit a target when the turret was destroyed.
  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur if a Gunboat was beached for too long.
