Call of duty black ops 3-1

Treyarch has just released a new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The update will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One, and makes changes to both Multiplayer as well as Zombies mode. The update includes a nerf for the Vesper that everyone has been complaining about.

The update also adds an option to purchase Liquid Divinium using CoD Points. A few bugs have also been fixed, as players can no longer acquire two GKZ-45 Mk 3 while playing Gorod Krovi, if one of them is riding the dragon. The update also fixes the one-hit kill knife bug that allowed players to acquire a knife that could kill any type of enemy in one-hit.
