Infinity Ward has released a new update for the PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One versions of Call of Duty: Ghosts that adds Chaos Mode for Extinction, makes a few anti-cheat changes, and fixes several bugs.

Chaos Mode was first introduced as part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3‘s Spec Ops game mode and sees players fending off never ending waves of enemies—aliens in this case. Chaining kills will allow players to increase their combo multiplier and earn power-ups.

The patch also reduces the head shot multiplier of the MTAR-X, fixes three exploits, and includes several fixes for all three episodes of Extinction.

The full patch notes can be found below:

Weapon Balance

  • MTAR-X: Reduced head-shot damage multiplier.

  • Restrict DLC weapons for clan v clan & esports mode.
