Unexpected Black Ops 2 patch goes live for 360

Yeah I know right, there was multiple articles and even a tweet from black ops stating watch the patch was for. Also, didn't that patch spark a rumor about dinosaur?

Does anyone know if people can use hacks like "aim-bot" on consoles? (I'm playing CoD on 360) I'm certainly not a beast at CoD, but sometimes when I watch my kill cams, It seems like some players have some instant lock on when they aim down sights at me. At some points it becomes really frustrating, especially when people on the other team wind up with ludicrous K/D ratios like 56:7, and you cant even acquire a target without getting lit up!

lol. Either way, I'm enjoying CoD for the first time since the original Black Ops, despite getting owned most of the time. Well done Treyarch.

Entirely possible, yet most of the time it is the internet connection in combination with lag compensation. With a lag switch or just controlling you internet bit-rate (commonly by streaming youtube vids while playing), it is possible to get a half second jump on any other player in a given lobby.

If you want to have a real test of gaming skills you have to set up a lan party.

Another wonderful game that plays like crap! Sigh
Been playing halo because the hit detection ruins the game play.

Get rid of the client side servers... Take some of that money you been raking in and invest in Designated servers! Cheap fks!

I play a lot of Halo 4 as well, but to be fair, those are p2p as well. It just seems like it gives host to the better connection more often than not in Halo 4.

This BO2 patch did actually improve the game and make it playable imo. At least the sniper rifles aren't running amok like before.

A client side server has no advantage to be host... It's a disadvantage!
And that's why the host quits in BO2.
You want to lag your connection in BO2!
High speed connection is a disadvantage in client side servers

Agree jek... It was unplayable, I will try tonight and see if they fix the client side server issues

I give Treyarch props for their continued efforts to fix the game, last night there were over a million users on BO2 on the Xbox 360, which surprised me. I hadn't played it for a month or so because it was so bad.

I found that while not everything was fixed, it is at least playable in my opinion. I hate the fact that you need to do so much to get simple kill-streaks now though, hopefully they continue to balance and fix some of the still lingering problems.
