The new Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War patch is not without problems.

Season 2 officially kicked off in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone overnight, one day after the release of the big patch. Unfortunately, as is often the case with big updates, a few annoying problems have popped up.

In this case, a number of players have been reporting significantly worse performance, particularly on consoles, after installing the patch. Some on the next-gen consoles had to turn off ray tracing to get a solid framerate, and even that doesn’t always help.

The good news is that Treyarch is well aware of these reports. In fact, the developer has already pushed out a fix for these problems on PlayStation, and more platforms should follow soon. Treyarch revealed this on Twitter, adding that it’s working to get those out as soon as possible.

The massive Season 2 update, of course, brought new maps, weapons and operators to the game. Then there’s Outbreak, a new Zombies experience on a big scale. Warzone, too, has a new point of interest near the Prison in the form of a crashed ship, which fans think will be how zombies arrive in Warzone.
