The next major event for Call of Duty launched on April 30 for PlayStation 4 but the company is already acting on some of the earlier problems that have been cropping up throughout its fourth operation.

Even though Treyarch fixed a lot of problems with connectivity issues the day of Spectre Rising’s release, the company is right back on the job as they’re introducing quick amends to bugged Care Packages and its new Bounty Hunter mode.

Big fixes to Bounty Hunter

While tons of players have already hopped into the Bounty Hunter game type for Blackout, a ton of people reported connection issues plaguing the new mode.

With the new update, Treyarch thinks they have a handle on the situation and will undoubtedly keep a close watch to see if the fix completely remedied the problem.

Similarly, the May 1 patch has addressed the issue that was misaligning the camera when players were getting revived as Spectre.
