Since its launch, it seems that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has been plagued with constant problems. On the same launch day, some PlayStation 5 owners were unknowingly downloading and playing the PlayStation 4 version and some even reported that a failure in connection to the servers was preventing them from playing the campaign offline.
Xbox Series X owners arguably have it worse, as not only did they inadvertently download the Xbox One version of the game, it would also cause the console to crash. Fortunately, there was a simple fix for this, but now things have apparently taken a turn for the worse, as there are reports that some Xbox Series X consoles are crashing.
One Reddit user admits that playing Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War would occasionally cause their console to crash, but they could always just restart it – until recently, it crashed and wouldn’t come back on at all. The news of this has understandably concerned other Xbox Series X owners, who don’t want to risk playing games at all if it means locking up their console.
Fortunately, developer Treyarch has learned of the problem and is already looking to fix it with a patch. It has been added to the official Trello board, so players can stay up-to-date on it and other issues affecting the game. However, at the time of writing, it is unclear how long gamers will have to wait until this brick issue is fully resolved.
In the meantime, Treyarch has provided some recommendations that should help people avoid it for now. First of all, avoid accidentally downloading the Xbox One version, as mentioned above. Second, turn off ray tracing. Although the feature has been one of the new generation’s biggest selling points, turning it off has been reported to have helped gamers mitigate crashing issues. Not to mention, ray tracing seems to cause other problems too, like making online matches very slow.
Hopefully the wait for the next patch won’t be too long, but it should be noted that Cold War only received a new patch very recently, which has made adjustments to multiplayer and fixed stability issues in Zombies mode, among others. things.
However, one thing that can be more difficult to address is online toxicity. Although talking trash is considered to be just one part of Call of Duty culture, it arguably turned into something much worse.
