Crazy Modern Warfare ‘jamming’ glitch stops players from firing weapon

Modern Warfare players have discovered a game-breaking ‘jamming’ glitch which prevents them from shooting their weapon when in-game.

Infinity Ward’s reboot of their trademark series was welcomed with open arms. Met with praise for their detailed campaign and overhauled multiplayer, Modern Warfare has become the most played Call of Duty game of all time

Yet, it appears that the latest iteration of the first-person shooter is still struggling with bugs and glitches, some overshadowing the player experience. 

ActivisionThe host of bugs and glitches are ruining what is otherwise a mechanically sound game.

From minor snags (such as death by office chair on St. Petrograd) to game-breaking issues (such as being able to escape Piccadilly’s combat area and almost single-handedly win a game), Modern Warfare has handled its fair share of setbacks.

Two Reddit users have spotted a glitch which stops players from using their weapons during multiplayer action — a concept which a first-person shooter kind of relies on. 

First demonstrated by Diazepam, the player gets behind enemy lines during a Cyber Attack match on Piccadilly. After attempting to shoot their foe, their weapon ‘jams’ and is caught in the middle of the holstering animation.

While the player managed to take down one enemy via melee, they were eventually eliminated by another opponent who spotted their antics. 

Similarly, Drummer829 experienced the same problem, but this time while playing Hardpoint on Grazna Raid. After making a clever run from their spawn, the player has an enemy in their line of sight, only to find that they’re metaphorically ‘stuck in the mud.’

Someone else posted this glitch, so I figured I’d post as well to being more attention to it. Please fix! from modernwarfare

Since the glitch left them helpless, the player had no option but to fall to their foe (despite their best efforts to jump and evade enemy fire). The player went on to describe the glitch at-hand.

The bug is where after running, your gun ‘jams’ and you can’t aim down or shoot,” Drummer opened. “Your guy is stuck like that but you can still melee, switch guns and throw grenades. You can do everything but shoot your gun.”

While the bug is only appearing to surface now, another user claimed that the ‘jamming’ animation glitch has been in the game since launch. 

Various other players chimed in to explain that they too had experienced the glitch, with no recurring theme emerging. Others attempting to laugh it off by jesting: “Maybe it’s another ‘realism’ addition to the game like player collision. Who knows?”

One thing is for sure, Infinity Ward will want to get this bug boxed off before the inaugural Call of Duty League kicks off on January 24.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
