Frustrating Modern Warfare glitch stops players from reloading

An annoying glitch in Modern Warfare is preventing players from reloading their weapons for seemingly no reason at all.

The game has seen its fair share of bugs, glitches, and exploits since it released in October 2019, with bizarre events occurring including turning maps into a psychedelic experience and weapons simply not running out of ammo… ever.

This is all par for the course of a popular game such as Call of Duty, and the developers will often work endlessly to try and negate the number of bugs operating in their game – but this one seems to have slipped through the net, and it’s pretty annoying.

Despite the issues it has faced, Modern Warfare has still been one of the biggest games released in this generation of consoles.

Posted to Reddit by a player called CHARL13is, they appear to be playing a game of Infected when his Model 680 shotgun simply stops reloading.

As the enemies make their way up to the top of Rust where CHARL13’s team is situated, it seems obvious enough that reigning shotgun shells down upon them is a guaranteed route to success, simply picking them off as they head in a straight line towards you.

This wasn’t the case, however, as soon enough CHARL13’s shotgun just stops reloading. While the character is still doing the animation of putting the slugs into the weapon, the number simply flickers between 0 and 1, while never actually filling up.

The Redditor was forced to switch to their pistol, instead, packing a lot less of a punch than the shotgun, and no matter what they tried they were unable to reload the Model 680.

Eventually, the gaggle of infected managed to overrun the top section of Rust and take them out, but this may never have happened had the reload not bugged out.

It’s not clear yet whether Infinity Ward is aware of this issue, but they’ll want to find out why it happened as soon as possible so they can get a fix out and stop this from happening in the future.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
