Call of Duty and sliding bugs can you name a more iconic duo? A "feature" of the game since Black Ops III and its infamous "g-slide", the act of cancelling the sliding inanimation to slide right into another has become one of the staples of the franchise.

Treyarch are taking a different approach with Black Ops Cold War though with an update to the beta that went live on 11th October removing the iteration seen in the latest Call of Duty game.

In a series of tweets detailing the update Treyarch made mention of adjusting the Duster Stock attachement to "prevent faster sliding than intended."

Whether this means the complete removal of the sliding bug as seen in the game at the moment is not year clear.

Alongside those changes Treyarch also announced that the Spy Plane's cooldown has been increased, the TDM score limit has gone from 75 to 100, and the ability to join games that are near their end has been changed to make this scenario less likely.

Fans of the game will hope there there are furhter updates on the way and soon as the game has been critized for poor netcode, inconsistent aim assist and audio issues.

Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is currently in beta with only those that pre-ordered on PlayStation 4 able to play at the moment. Next weekend will see Xbox and PC players given access which may well throw up problems of its own.
