Ghosts Xbox 360, One, PlayStation 3, PS4, PC New Heavy Duty Mode Updates on December 23rd
This most recent update from Infinity Ward was announced by candyslexia on December 23rd on the official Call of Duty forums.
The main changes included new features, weapon balancing updates, and a couple miscellaneous fixes. For features, we finally received a new game mode called Heavy Duty as well as some new loadouts that were added to the Infected mode. Also, five squad points were given to every soldier at the first 5 levels of progress in the game.

In the category of Weapon Balancing, we see a reduction in the flinch benefits for sniper rifles when using the focus perk. Another balance included a ADS speed reduction and more adjustments to sniper rifles.
Read about what other changes are coming to sniper rifles.
Additional fixes include an added 100 XP points for pickup of field orders, a bug fix for unlimited perks and an exploit fix for invisibility.
Many complaints have been seen in regards to the unlimited perks hack that allowed users to add an unrestricted amount of perks, giving them an unfair advantage in multiplayer. Hopefully this alleviates some of frustration that many of the Call of Duty fans are having with Ghosts.
