Finally, some adjustments to the AK74u. That gun was ruining the game for me. Second chance adjustments sound good too.
its about time they did something about the lobby/party connectivity issues, i can only hope they fixed that nasty bug that keeps kicking me out of my friends' parties with the message "party is no longer active".
and these second chance changes i love, due to the fact every time i put someone into last stand, some idiot from my team ALWAYS goes all rambo and steals the kill.
I was hoping they'd address the dipshit partner(s) bug prevalent in every other Zombie mode I play.
Anyone tried the update on a 3.41 jailbroken console? Seems most new patches these days give you a black screen if you're not on 3.55 OFW.
just run 3.55 MFW and you will be fine.
i use ps3 60 GB fat with CFW, can i update... ?
the second chance adjustment is great, but what exactly did they do to the ak74?
Noticed that as well, but on second thought, it's probably better that they do not detail what they changed because then people will probably cry more.
I'll just continue using it and see if it continues to fit my style - if not, there are plenty of other guns to choose from.
i'm on 3.55 cfw and i updated from my backup.. don't know if that's required but it works online
