Since then it has been a struggle to find a lobby because every time i try to go on and play it just cannot find one. Idk why it is doing that. I already restarted my ps4 and shut it off for half a hour with no use.

    My copy of call of duty black ops 3 on ps3 won’t update the latest version 1.02 for black ops 3 ps3

  61. S

    I bought the xbox360 bo3 and it was terrible, I got it the 6th of November(the day it came out) and was not one server online. I thought maybe I’ll give it a day or two, servers started to appear, but they are glitching, you enter a full lobby it says waiting for more players, other servers have no maps showing up or just as the game starts the server crashes, it’s crazy!! And when you do get on a game it usually cuts out or says migrating hosts, whenever it says migrating hosts it freezes my whole xbox and the other day my control froze too and kept vibrating, all the battery was drained. I did not pay all that money for a pile of shit, not only have they removed the features but they can’t even get a fucking server running, dreadful.. I advise everyone not to purchase until ALL problems are fixed..?

  62. D

    i got a glitch in my Call of Duty Black Ops 3 how can I fix that?

  63. C

    hey so when i log into the game, im at the title screen and all i can see is the dudes arms, and the rest is a blur that moves around like i just won a solitaire game…. there are infinite layers of the movement in his arms. persists in all game modes: zombies, multiplayer and campaign to the point where i cant even see anything but the original screen image…

    1. C

      also just found out that the solo on zombies doesnt work at all… i get to the girl stabbing the guy and then it cuts everything off and sends me back to the zombies main menu with the error code: disconnected from host, cept im the host right???

    Hey guys,

    I have a problem with the Dual Wield achievement in Multiplayer where you need to kill 10 players for the rank 1. I’ve played several games with the first pistol and dual wield attachin domination and kill confirm in hardcore mode but the achievement stays 0/10. Was wondering if I was the only one or you guys already knew the issue.

    thx, love the game <3

  86. R

    maybe it has to do with the controller, but when I use my Xbox 360 controller, the start and back buttons don’t work in game. They work just fine when navigating through the menus. Anyone else?

    1. T

      I never had that before, but it started doing it today. Have you found a way for fixing it or no?

    2. M

      Iv’e had the same issue. The buttons quit working on mine as well. I read a solution that said reset controller bindings to default, but that didn’t work for me. I’d like to know if anyone finds a solution.

  87. M

    I just bought this game a few days ago, im playing PS3.
    This sh!t doesnt work..i get the same error messages as the rest of you…
    When i finally get in a game it either kicks me out, freezes or the connection is so bad that i envy a 128kb modem-even though my connection is 50/50 Mbps.

    Come on Treyarch…did Anonymous hack your shit or what.

  88. D

    hard wired. 80mps upload. xbox1. NAT OPEN. Whenever someone in the game speaks into their headset, my screen freezes. Every. damn. time. SO, I have to permanently keep all but party muted…and NOT play in a party. On top of that, I’ll join a lobby or two where 5+ rounds seem to get the kill. Anywher on the body. But more often than not, it takes 14+ rounds to the chest and head. But I die instantly. As if everyone playing CODBOPS3 has a titanfall smart pistol and I’m blasting a supersoaker. wtf

  89. J

    I’m still getting black scren crashes, always on hunted and redwood. anyone have a fix for this?

    I like many of you had the same . Did all the diagnostics Internet speed and connections where great. Still nothing couldn’t play a game of bo3 for the life of me due to internet connection and it only happens with this game so I went and picked up a router range extender and literally it fixed all my problems.

    I buy Black Ops 3 for my PC my SO is W10, inside the package there are 6 dvd’s: It took a long time to install, and and when finished installing, when I wanted to run BO3 , Steam simply said … Run ,,, and ready to play, but not starting. I was desperate, spent € 59 with the game and Steam does not do the proper job. I am angry !
    I think the team that developed the game is worth nothing

    Xbox one is so sloppy. Please don’t buy I am warning you your going to waste tones of money on a terrible piece of garbage. It takes about 1 hour to download the game then you have to update it.. Another 39 minutes then there are millions of glitches blue screan freezing ect. So please do not buy

    biggest pile of shit ever made activision couldnt make games in the 70″s still cant make games 45yrs later..ahhhh LAG OPS 3..extra portions of host migration, a side plate of extra lag, followed up with a dessert of lost connection to host, you might get a slight taste of server told to disconnect from listen service, with just a hint of server timed out, you might be lucky enough to get a helping of error codes a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,j,k,l,m,n,o,p,q,r,s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z, then ontop of this magnificent meal before you can eat you must update the receipe with a 2.3gb update and an extra 700mb of topping, but wait theres more …when you open the recipe you realise theres no writing anymore and you can only look at the recipe online only, but on the back page of this recipe theres usually a disclaimer but on this one theres discrimination against people who own this receipe because theres a better recipe out and there just concentrating on that one and if you cant afford this new recipe book because of funds you might aswell act like a chicken and go stuff yourself..

    hi.. i bought the game cod black ops 3 dvd pc.. but i can install ithe game.. system said Sorry but the following items are not available for purchase in this country.
    how do i fix this problem.. im here in uae… help please

  116. H

    This game has been nothing but a complete waste of money from the xbox360 and my xbox one. Get it together. They should just remake the game or have better servers or something. This is fucking ridiculous. Nothing but greedy mother fuckers making terrible shit for there own personal wealth. I will more then likely never buy another cod game. Not that it matters or will even do anything for them but still. Way to go Activision, Beenox, Bink Video, havox, Demonware, Dolby Digital, Microsoft, Id technology, Entertainment Software Association, Treyarch, and whoever the guys are that made this game!!!!!! You should be ashamed of yourselves!!!

  117. G

    I have notice different problems on PS4, especially when playing the campaign online at realist level: 1) the Combat Movement (walks on wall, super jumps) doesn’t work, apparently it works only randomly from a save to another; 2) Sometime the special action icon disappears even if the last selected is still available, to activate it you have to press only R1 rather than the pair R1 + L1; 3) Dying in certain missions at realist can cause a loop because the system respawn you at the same point and time, when you’ve been hit (mission 10, when you have to break into the VTOL’s room from the high). I’m playing the version.

    I bought the game for the Xbox One last week, tried to install it 3 or 4 times onto my Xbox, but everytime I start the game, it gets to the Activision window, goes black screen and completely re starts the Xbox. I’ve gone as far as to reinstall factory settings on the Xbox but with no success.

    Is it a case of waiting for the next update/patch, or should I send the game back and try a new disc?
