Yesterday as a consequence of one of Treyarch’s apparently ongoing ‘hotfixes’ for Call Of Duty: Black Ops, 360 and PS3 players were experiencing reduced movement speeds in the competitive multiplayer. For a few hours folks online would find themselves sprinting about in slow-motion absolutely terrified that it was bound to disadvantage them in the already merciless pits of the multiplayer community, only to notice that everyone else was moving slowly too.
As funny as it is watching someone struggle up a staircase, moving more slowly than a guinea pig dragging Santa’s fridge across the arctic, it was quickly becoming a problem and a real nuisance. However Treyarch realized what had happened and implemented another rather heroic hotfix to amend the improvised matrix sequences.
Multiplayer man from Treyarch David Vonderhaar notes that if Xbox users are still experiencing the slowness, then make sure you are using version 188.8.131.52 (reset if you don’t..the game should do the rest when you log in).
If you didn’t go online when the slow mo struck, then you’ve nothing to worry about. You might not have even noticed the numbers on the top right change.
