SHG Weekly Community Update - Friday, March 2

Happy March! Spring hasn’t quite sprung yet, but it’s coming...soon (dead joke). We can almost feel it. With the Resistance Community Event concluded and the kickoff for The Resistance DLC Pack this week on XB1 and PC, we’re looking forward to keeping the fun going this weekend with our Community Choice playlist, voted on by the community on our Reddit thread. We've also got 2XP on all Featured playlists! It will be a great weekend to get in and capture your gameplay. We’re loving all your #CODTopPlays and memorable game moments, so keep those coming! And now for our updates…




Leaderboards not updating. As some of you have already noticed, we recently pushed through a fix for leaderboards not updating. We are continuing to monitor and work on this and will push through additional fixes as needed. Thank you, everyone, for your patience on this.  


Community Choice Playlist. Thank you, everyone, for voting on your top map-mode combinations! As of 10AM PT, this playlist is now live in the Featured tab and titled: Community Choice (English) and Mosh Pit (non-English languages). Enjoy until Monday, March 5th at 10AM PT.


DOM XL: We’re rolling out DOM XL at the end of March after a special upcoming holiday event that we’ll share more about soon. For now, enjoy the Community Choice playlist, and thanks again for voting on your favorite map-mode combos!


Heroic Weapon Bribe: This has been removed and we’re working to address issues with the bribe through our Player Support channels. If you’ve been affected by this, please reach out to player support on Twitter @ATVIAssist and Reddit u/ATVIAssist.


Hardcore Team Killing/Ricochet. Hey HC fans, this one’s for you! We’ve made various changes to our TK rules over the past few months. After hearing more feedback from you, we’ve decided to run a separate HC playlist with ricochet so that when you shoot a teammate, you take damage instead of them. This will be coming next weekend, starting Friday, March 9th.


Paint Shop. Ok, we got ahead of ourselves here. This is a feature that we know the community wants, and we are committed to delivering. We’re actively testing it within the studio. The testing has taken longer than we initially anticipated. We shouldn’t have mentioned timing before we were ready, and we sincerely apologize for that mistake. With that lesson in mind, we won’t set a new date until our testing has concluded. Our goal is to wrap this work up very soon, and once we do, we’ll provide an update with more concrete timing.


Here's a preview of things to come!





Weapon and Uniform Update. We’ve heard the feedback on new and exciting weapons being added, and we’re working on a massive update that’s due out in the weeks ahead. For now, we’re able to show you a little taste of the things to come…






Leaderboards not updating. The update we described in the Multiplayer section also applies to Zombies leaderboards as well! We will continue to monitor and push through any additional fixes if needed.


A Dead Tongue…




#WWIIZombies Concept Art Print Giveaway. Exciting news! We’ll be giving away a print of some seriously badass concept art from the Nazi Zombies team. Keep an eye out next week for more info.


Fall Damage and Loss of Armor. We’ve heard your feedback on this and have eliminated fall damage, which means falling can no longer take your armor. This fix will be coming in an upcoming update.


Red Screen of Pain. We’ve heard you on this as well! We have a fix for this coming in our next big game update. The change will make it this screen much less obfuscating, so you can still see what’s in front of you.




That awkward moment...




It’s arte. Either you get it or you don’t.




What can we say? We have a weakness for players who dominate with melee weapons, especially those who prevent the enemy from building the bridge. Hats off to you, Josh!


We love a good Nazi Zombies tribute! Thank you, NuK3_2good4u for this sketch!




That wraps up our update for this week! Make sure to put in some game time this weekend and try out the new Community Choice playlist!
