Good news today! Black Ops has been updated! Lots and lots of fixes in this patch but one I’m really excited about is one right at the end:
Additional fine-tuning of audio levels and ranges for footsteps and gunfire
Maybe now I’ll be able to hear the baddies in my headphones and Ninja will be useful. (Thanks Mike for the heads up on the update!)
(And please DICE staff, if you’re reading this. We’re still looking forward to the next installment of BfBC2 expansions. BLOPS is simply a stop gap until map pack 7 and the Vietnam expansion are released!)
Update (2010-11-18) The post linked above has been updated with 2 very important changes:
Improvements to the spawn system to resolve an issue where negative spawn influencers from specific game events were not always being deleted after the danger had cleared – in some matches, this was causing good spawns to be erroneously flagged by the game as bad spawns, which in turn forced actual bad spawns to get selected later in the match
Experimental slight reduction in knife lunge range – this is a trial change
Have you noticed these changes?
