Game-breaking Modern Warfare glitch lets you keep shooting forever

A devastating Modern Warfare glitch has been uncovered that allows shotguns to be fired at an infinite rate without ever running low on ammunition.

Infinity Ward’s latest release in the Call of Duty franchise has been bogged down by a number of game-breaking issues since it’s 2019 launch. From chairs that kill you to players shooting through walls, there are some nagging bugs lying underneath the surface.

The latest significant glitch stems from the Model 680 shotgun and shockingly allows players to fire the weapon endlessly without running out of ammunition.

Close-range combat might get a lot more challenging thanks to this shotgun exploit.

While testing out slug rounds on the particular shotgun, Reddit user ‘Dinjur’ stumbled upon a plethora of issues impacting the weapon.

“When you equip slug rounds with the Model, the reload animation becomes very weird, you can only reload one at a time,” he explained while demonstrating how the gun could only be reloaded a single slug at a time.

The animation would simply cut off as each slug was placed into the weapon. They explained how holding down the reload button would fix the issue but obviously that requires a constant, manual input.

“However, that’s not the worst part about this glitch,” he continued. “If you empty out the magazine, you’ll be stuck in an endless reload animation.”

Even after switching weapons and rotating back to the shotgun, the weapon would instantly start up a reload animation and continue trying to insert a fresh slug into the gun on repeat.

While this bug means that you can’t refill the gun to it’s maximum capacity, it does provide infinite ammo as the reloaded slugs don’t appear to chew through your regular haul of rounds.

Demonstrating just how powerful the glitch can be, it turns out that due to the newfound glitch, you can continue firing the weapon endlessly as the reload bug carries on without dwindling away at your reserves.

The Model 680 seems to be the only shotgun affected by this issue.

There’s no indicating when a fix for the issue might be on the way, though they pleaded for the developers at Infinity Ward to “please fix this bug.”

For the time being, if you see someone bringing a Model 680 into battle, there’s a good chance they could be looking to exploit the glitch, so try to keep your distance.

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
