Last week, two new maps went live, Express and Firebase Z, and this week League Play finally went live. In the last few days, Treyarch has been constantly delivering fresh updates to fix small bugs and better balance League Play. Here is all the info on the latest patches.

League Play is here! Finally, a Ranked Mode in Black Ops Cold War! However, there was some criticism about the banned weapons and items. On February 9, one day after the release of League Play, Treyarch released the first patch.

February 9 Patch Notes

The February 9 patch notes focus on League Play and Zombie Mode.

League Play

  • Players logging into League Play for the first time should now see preset CDL classes instead of empty custom classes in Create-a-Class.
