PC version Black Ops still has issues

Written by David Stellmack

A combination of stuttering and lag
It seems that no matter whether you have the best of the best in PC hardware, it is no match for the stuttering and lag issues that buyers of the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops are experiencing. As the number of reports and unhappy PC players of the title continue to grow, the developers at Treyarch continue to try to determine a course of corrective action to resolve the issue.

The lag seems to be more pronounced in the multiplayer modes, while the stuttering issues that max out the CPU seem to be worst in the moments in the game with the least amount of action or in the cut scenes, for example. Speculation seems to be that a memory leak might be the problem, but so far that is just speculation from what users are reporting.

Treyarch has not officially responded to the complaints, but some forum posts confirm that they are aware of the issue and are working on the problem. At this point there continues to be no official word of when to expect a patch, but we believe that they are working on one.

The reported PC server browser issues that seemed to have been a problem right at launch have apparently been resolved by some server side adjustments, according to the whispers that we hear.

Seriously! This bugs MUST show up in beta testing? How come Treyarch releases such half-baked crap? What a cheek!

Black ops runs perfect for me on HD 6870 and Phenom II 965. No stutter or lag, ultra smooth with everything on max. Maybe its not running so well on older hardware?

Quoting Boomstick777:

I have a Core i7 920 with a HD5970 and I sometimes experience this lag, however everyone gets it at the same time so it is obviously server based and not hardware. It was 10 times worse on the day of release, but its isnt as bad now.

I don't think I like the game. The guns are underpowered and crap and the game play just feels cheap. Not to mention there is no way to create a party with your friends.

If this game is considered bugged, then WTH is MoH considered ?
That thing even had tons of bugs that prevented advancement in the game.
Black Ops runs OK on my system. Quad Core + 5870. No issues lag/shuttering here.

Depends on the optimizations... reminds me of Hitman something, when Geforce 6600, the cards it was developed on, was working better then it's bigger brother 6800.

I was actually considering to buy this game off Steam but these issues that I'm reading plus the overall value of the game hearing from students from school and on the internet, I think I'll pass on this and wait for Brink next year.

I have an Athlon x2 5400+

I know it's an old, slow CPU, but this game is completely unplayable!

What do you expect from a console port?

This is not good !

First when I played it I though that the problem was from my machine but when I look to the on screen info from MSI After burner I see that GPU usage is only 30 - 50% and this means that there is problem in the game !

Whenever I turn left or right shooting here and there frames drops under 10 !!

WTF is that !

I'm wondering how it passed beta testing with this crappy Frames !!

I hope they address it fast !
