It's probably fair to say that the hardcore Call of Duty community hasn't taken too kindly to the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. With skill-based matchmaking at the forefront of multiplayer complaints, those playing the game day in and day out are racking up a huge list of problems the latest entry in the franchise faces. That all comes to a head on its official Reddit page, where the mood isn't exactly positive. Post after post details a new issue with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, so much so that it's tough to find anyone that's feeling positive about the experience.
As previously stated, it's skill-based matchmaking that the Call of Duty community truly despises. It has ruined the fun for many players, especially those who choose to party up with friends that take things a little more casually. Because of the skill gap, your buddies will have to face significantly tougher online opponents, leaving you with the job of carrying the team on your shoulders. It has been a controversial topic within the community for some time now, but Black Ops Cold War really feels like it is bringing the argument to a head.
Elsewhere, the MP5 is completely overpowered and renders most other weapons useless, hit detection appears to be broken, aiming reticules are incorrect, reward screens display the wrong attachments, gun levelling is far too slow, and animations are a constant source of criticism. Oh, everyone hates the Miami map too.
