Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War update addresses issues with multiplayer, Zombies

Treyarch has delivered a new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that aims to fix a few issues in multiplayer and Zombies.

The update prevents Tomahawk kills from awarding 100 points instead of 50 and finishing moves being counted as melee kills in the Sticks and Stones mode. There’s also a fix for incoming armor damage for Beck’s Operator mission not tracking properly in Multi-Team modes.

As for Zombies, issues with the scoreboard losing functionality, players being unable to inspect other players through the scoreboard, and the column showing Downs not displaying correctly have all being fixed. Take a look at the full patch notes below:
