It’s not very often that we see this much upkeep so quickly at launch, but hey, at least that reflects well on Sledgehammer’s commitment to their game!
It has been announced that the studio has officially released a patch to address the myriad of performance and bug issues that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare suffered on launch last week. Here are the offical set of (simplified) patch notes:
- Adjustment to the in-game chat names notifications placement.
- Fixed Prestige reset issues, including emblems and challenges.
- Fixed marksman and camo challenges to not reset when you Prestige.
- Fix for weapon reloads counting as speed reloads in certain circumstances.
- Fixed issues with Ping Bar not updating correctly.
- Fix for stats accumulating towards leaderboards after Prestiging.
- Adjustment to challenges to unlock camos for weapons.
- Fix for round-based game modes, affecting Win/Loss ratios.
- Implemented ability to unlock eSports Rule options in Private Match.
- Added description to reload informing that you can double-tap to speed reload.
- Fixed DoubleXP splash, so it doesn’t show up in Private Match, practice round, or survival mode.
- Showing 4X or 2X based on whether a loot DoubleXP item exists
- Add DoubleXP icon to medal splashes when DoubleXP is active.

Again, we may poke fun at Sledgehammer and Call of Duty for releasing a shaky game at launch but it is truly great to see so many updates so soon to a game. They are taking the time to listen to fans and address the problems at launch, so good on you Sledgehammer.
Along with this patch, it has been noted that AMD has rolled out a patch to fix performance issues with Advanced Warfare, so make sure to go download your latest firmware updates! (You can find the downloads right here!)
Stay tuned for future updates to the latest Call of Duty, although we have a feeling all of you might be running for the grand return of Halo, which launched today!
