Black Ops multiplayer glitches discovered

360 News | Surprise!
Normally a video game glitch wouldn't be considered newsworthy, but for Call of Duty: Black Ops, a couple of unfortunate problems have already arisen with its multiplayer component. Modern Warfare 2 was also jam packed with problems, but it has taken less than twenty-fours hours for the community to start exploiting Treyarch's latest release.

GamesRadar posted two videos and some information about the issue. The first glitch will be familiar to fans - infinite Care Packages are back once again. Not only will the lobby suffer from terribly unbalanced matches, but it also gives the cheater an enormous amount of experience points.

Dan Amrich of Activision made a statement prior to the discovery, "Every game has bugs; it's a reality of gaming. And the bigger the game, the more likely you will find bugs that would never even come to light in less popular titles. So the best way to help get rid of those bugs is to share what you've learned with the team that has the power and insight to fix them". An alternative solution would be to release a beta version before the big release day, it usually helps.

The second glitch is quite blatantly a cheeky way of complaining to the developers, but effective nevertheless. We're hoping for a swift patch to be released in order to fix these, but we can't say with certainty when that will arrive. You can check out the videos below to see exactly what's happening in the world of Black Ops.

If they would do an open beta before release, there would be less of these bugs.

That seems to work for other games.

They've also had the first video taken down already.

Both of these pale in comparison to the stalls every 30 seconds, even in menus and load screens in the multiplayer executable.

Maybe for you PC gamers, but it's working pretty well on the PS3 (and I assume XBOX)

hahaha floating apple is good, I hate when you kill someone/something and there body moves all over the place. Seems to happen alot in games using the Unreal Engine.

I will still be picking this up as im keen to see the 3d aspect to it.

PC edition working just fine over here. I am also enjoying my superior graphics and dedicated (free) servers.
Very nice indeed.
