New Advanced Warfare Patch Brings Master Prestige Ranks, Weapon Balancing and More
Sledgehammer has released a new patch for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The patch adds new Master Prestige Ranks, brings weapons balancing and some Exo Zombie related changes.
The update clocks-in at around 2GB and allows users to skip Exo Zombie intro. Moreover, developers have added 15 prestige ranks and grand master prestige and brought some much needed tweaks to a range of weapons. For example, recoil has been reduced on the MK14, while player movement speed gets a 5% boost with a heavy weapon.
During online matches, I often experience connections drops and other issues. Thankfully, some connectivity optimization will improve things a bit. Some users also reported an issue which disabled their ability to spawn back into the game. The new patch will permanently deal with the problem.
You can see the highlights from the patch below. For full patch notes head over the official Call of Duty website.
