Thinking of Playing a Local Game? Think Again
For the last month or so, users have been experiencing issues pertaining to the online data in which you play with throughout the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Multiplayer. The issue at hand is the corruption that is caused by playing in a local game, which supposedly causes you to lose your Create-a-Class slots, loss of permanent unlocks, loss of perks and weapons, statistical data is wiped clean, and an unreadable unlock/prestige token amount.
A Reddit user claiming to have suffered these issues says he got them by “playing a local game at his friend’s house” in which when he returned home to play some more, he was hit by this bug, and now he can no longer play the game with the current account outside of League Play.
Supposedly this only affects PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users. There have been no occurrences found for PC users. Neither Treyarch nor Activision is confirming or denying, nor are they offering any form of assistance regarding whether or not it can be fixed or if so, by a certain time.
With that being said, I’d advise you to take caution the next time you play a local game, it just might be your last.
