In a Blog/Forum post, Infinity Ward Community Manager Tina Palacios laid out their patch plans for Call of Duty Ghosts...

First she addressed one of the biggest problems with CODGhosts (game breaking, really), the Spawn points...
Spawning: Spawning is one of the most talked about subjects in Ghosts, and it’s one of the most talked about subjects here at the studio as well. We’ve been addressing bugs with the current spawning system, but feel we can do more to make the experience better. We are currently working on significant changes to the spawning system based off of the learnings and play data that we have gathered over the last 5 weeks. Work is progressing here and we recently had our first internal playtest of this new system. The designers are working feverishly to get it ready to go live and we will keep you up-to-date on our progress.
Then she addressed the weapon balancing....
Weapon Balance/Sniper Rifles: We constantly evaluate and re-evaluate weapon balance. Any changes we make have a ripple effect throughout the game so we test things heavily before they go live. After much feedback and many hours of internal testing, we recently made adjustments to the MSBS.
She moved onto Sniper Rifles...
Sniper Rifles are something we are also looking into; as we said before, we changed Sniper Rifles from MW3 to Ghosts. Those changes are:

- No aim assist from the hip, which was a huge part of how Quick Scoping worked in previous games. Players now have to aim unassisted until fully scoped in.
- Hip fire reticles for Sniper Rifles were removed and hip spread was increased drastically. This reduces the effectiveness of hip firing with a Sniper Rifle.
- The Quickdraw perk’s Aim Down Sight (ADS) speed scale was reduced significantly for Sniper Rifle.
As if these changes weren't enough, she goes a little further.
Moving forward, we are testing adjustments to address the Time to Kill for Sniper Rifles versus other weapons. These Sniper Rifle balances include:

- A reduction in the flinch benefit of the Focus perk.
- An increase in overall ADS time.
- Sniper Rifles with a silencer are being changed to a chest-up kill instead of a waist-up kill.

We will continue to monitor the data and balance these weapons accordingly.
I'm glad they're working to fix quickscoping, but at the expense of other types of sniper players. That's the way I read it.

She moves onto cheating and hacking, which is the series' or franchise's biggest pet-peeve.
Hacking/Cheating: We have a dedicated Online Security department enforcing our online code of conduct for Call of Duty: Ghosts [click here]. This team is actively banning cheaters, cleaning up the leaderboards, and fixing hacked stats. The development team is fixing hacks and exploits as we find them. Please refer to the patch notes for a list of security fixes we’ve already addressed [click here]
I'm glad they're on top of the situation...
And you can help! When you report someone in-game, it goes directly to our Online Security team and they investigate every issue. You can also report issues to Activision Support, either through twitter (@ATVIAssist) or online [click here]
...But, I don't know if they're listening or what... There isn't even a recording system in place. And you can be the case of "collateral damage" in a match that involves a lagswitcher, cheater, or hacker. It's like they don't know the difference between a normal player, lagswitcher, cheater or hacker. :(

Nonetheless, Infinity Ward is very adamant about Squads that they're already making changes to it...
Squad Points: We are making a change to the amount of Squad Points your soldiers earn. For ranks 1 - 5, each rank up will now give you 5 squad points (increased from the usual 2 squad points). So each Squad Member that you take to level 5, you’ll get 25 squad points.
They really want Squads to be as balanced as possible...

Operations is also something they're lookin' into.
Operations: We are looking at large, potential changes for Operations. For instance, we are looking into increasing XP rewards for completing operations. More info to come.
They're paying a lot of respect to the Infected mode, since a lot of people love it...
Infected: We are in the process of adding new loadouts to the Infected playlist. This is currently being tested internally, so be sure to look out for more variety in the future!
They're adding a new mode to CODGhosts...
New game mode: We are in the process of adding a new Heavy Duty playlist that increases player health. We would love to hear your feedback on this new mode, so make sure to try it out.
Keep your eyes peepled for the announcement! :)

I don't think I'm agreeing to their sniper changes. I do not have the feeling that snipers are overpowered. The silencer fix is oke, but adding more flinch when hit, dont know about that since it is so easy to hit people from long ranges with every gun except pistols. And adding ADS time to snipers... more campers incomming :(.

It's good to see they wan't to do something with the hackers etc. but it seems like they are doing the wrong stuff TT. Hopefully they will listen to some smart COD players who know exactly whats going on.
