Nuketown 24/7 is currently the only gametype where a player can play a 12 person Free-For-All match outside the PC version. Also, because of the nature of the playlist, this is the only FFA match where parties are allowed, however the Tactical Insertion is NOT allowed, following the normal set-up.
As the Double XP weekend is ended via an update, players that started playing before the Double XP weekend ended are still able to access Nuketown 24/7, until they turn off their consoles, thus updating the game once they turn their consoles on again. This gamemode is always very popular with the Black Ops community (even more so than Team Deathmatch) due to its limited availability and the ease at which players can gain large amounts of kills.
PC servers always have this game mode, even without special events.
On the Xbox 360, Party Chat is allowed during Search and Destroy and Free for All matches, unlike normal Search and Destroy and Free for All.
As of February 10, Firing Range is used to host the Nuketown 24/7 playlist.
In Nuketown 2025 24/7, some game modes have been removed from the Black Ops version. The removed game modes are Search and Destroy, Free for All and Capture the Flag. However, these game modes were used in the launch weekend event. Also, Hardpoint has been added to the gamemode.
