Update: Here is what’s new in the December Black Ops 3 Update.

While we wait for more information, this is what we expect and don’t expect from the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 patch or update in December.

After many small fixes and a November Black Ops 3 patch delivered changes to the gameplay experience we are counting on another patch later this month that will tweak some weapons, fix some problems and potentially push you to find a new way to play.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is a month old and already has many hotfix updates and a full patch installed on consoles and PC, but there are still some problems with the game and there are some features listed as coming soon.

If you’ve spent any time sifting through the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 menus you’ll notice that there are still some locked areas, which we might see available later this year with a December Black Ops 3 update or patch.

We’cve seen two December Black Ops 3 updates arrive as hotfixes. These patches fix exploits including a Crytpokey exploit in Gun Game. See more information about the December Black Ops 3 update hot fix changes below.

  • 37.1*.24.4 – Add. exploit fixes (some of you are still that guy) & even more punching of FFA/GG spawns in the face.
  • 37.1*.21.4 – Patches exploits that ruin other people’s fun. Don’t be that guy. Nobody likes that guy.

During the Call of Duty World League Stream we also learned more about the December Black Ops 3 update. David Vonderhaar confirmed that an update is coming in the middle of the month that will include the following fixes, as shared by Charlie Intel.

  • Fixes for COD Caster mode:
    • kill feed
    • Wrong team names
    • Color issues
    • EMP effecting caster
    • Uplink indicator
  • Custom Game Settings – ability to save these – working on sort of a “COD World League” button to auto activate settings and rules.

With a lot of questions swirling around the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 updates and hotfixes we want to do our best to explain what to expect and what not to expect from the next major Black Ops 3 patch.

Hopefully this will help you figure out what you can expect, so that you are ready for any changes to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 that come this month. These are predictions, and are not based on insider information or leaks from Treyarch.

Expect Many Small December Black Ops 3 Updates

Over the next few weeks we expect to se a lot of small December Black Ops 3 updates before a major patch arrives. If you look at the number in the upper corner of the screen when you are playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 you'll notice that it changes when you start the game up.

The checking files screen downloads small Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 updates, called hotfixes, that include small changes to the game without a specific download of a major patch.

Sometimes there are small version differences at the end of the number which suggests Treyarch is testing multiple fixes with some of these updates before committing the changes to a bigger December Black Ops 3 update.
