However, the man himself, David Vonderhaar, took to Reddit to discuss the hotfix and its impact upon issues with several weapons and scorestreaks.

The modifications are occurring prior to next week’s Call of Duty World League qualifiers, in which teams can fight for a spot to join the pro teams already qualified for the Call of Duty: Pro Division. Qualifying matches will take place on PlayStation 4 beginning on Monday, Dec. 14 and lasting until Friday, Dec. 18.

In the Reddit announcement, Vonderhaar spoke of the larger upcoming update stating, “The update we are working on, TU4, is a big one with a lot of great stuff in it. We hope to have that to you soon.” 

Listed below are the major changes from the hotfix which are affecting weapons and scorestreaks of the current version of Black Ops 3. It’s likely won't see the major update until sometime after the CWL qualifiers.
