Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare update to fix prestige resets, speed reloads

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare seems to be doing pretty well critically, but Sledgehammer Games already has a number of fixes in mind for the shooter’s first update.


An patch for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is inbound, according to a recent post on the Sledgehammer Games website.

“There’s an update in the works that includes a number of polish items, fixes, and community requested changes,” Sledgehammer’s Michael Condrey wrote.

Here’s the proposed change list, which is of course subject to change.

  • Prestige reset issues, including emblems and challenges.
  • Adjustment to the in-game chat names notifications placement.
  • Fix for weapon reloads counting as speed reloads in certain circumstances.
  • Connectivity optimizations.
  • 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.

This latest batch of proposed updates joins another touted closer to launch. There seems to be quite a lot of overlap.

There’s no ETA on the update. Activision made a statement regarding Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s dedicated servers over the weekend, although I doubt this comforts those affected by lag and other issues in multiplayer.
