The Haunting Returns
April 23, 2021
Welcome to Season Three! In our latest update, we’ve made some adjustments to the AK-74u, Patrol Grip Underbarrel, and Speedgrip Underbarrel to ensure that SMGs remain faster to sprint with than assault rifles by default.
In Zombies, we’ve also noted some of the new gameplay features in Outbreak this week, made some gameplay adjustments in Dead Ops Arcade 3, and implemented additional stability and Challenge fixes. See below for the full details in the patch notes.

Here’s what’s new since our last update:
Developer’s note: The overall goal of these changes is to ensure that SMGs are faster to use than assault rifles by default. The AK-74u required some slight speed increases in order to bring it in-line with the rest of its class, and sprint speed bonuses for the Speedgrip Underbarrel on assault rifles, tactical rifles, and sniper rifles required an adjustment to ensure SMGs are faster to sprint with compared to these classes when using this attachment.
