Hilarious Modern Warfare movement glitch gives new meaning to ‘snaking’

A hilarious and bizarre new glitch has been discovered in Modern Warfare and players are as confused as they are in hysterics at it.

Movement is one of the most important aspects of the Call of Duty franchise. Good movement can make a good player great, and help you put yourself in the best position possible for any gunfight.

With that, though, comes the necessity for players to take advantage of unfair movement mechanics or bugs that leave their enemies helpless – but this glitch here really is a head-scratcher.

We think this player took ‘Ground War’ a little too literally.

While ‘snaking’ has been a movement bug found in a large number of Call of Duty titles, we’re not quite sure it’s ever looked like this.

Typically, when anticipating a gunfight, you watch for people to run round corners or pop up at a door, perhaps, but this might’ve been the last thing fr0stehsnew expected to face.

While playing Ground War, fr0stehsnew was holding the area around C to make sure no enemy could get in, but one player nearly slithered past him… literally.

The first time you watch this you’ll literally laugh out loud, as his enemy comes around the corner at a rate of knots while prone on the ground, especially because of the split second where fr0stehsnew just doesn’t shoot, clearly flabbergasted at what he was seeing.

Super fast prone. Is this a new exploit? from r/modernwarfare

As shown in the video, it happened again a little while later with the exact same player, which seems to suggest there’s some trick behind the movement.

While it’s not clear what exactly causes this, some players responded with what they believe it to be having witnessed the issue before.

Some claimed that it was simply a visual issue, as you could see the player standing in the killcam, while others suggest it could actually be done purposefully by entering a vehicle prone, looking downwards.

While it’s not entirely clear what causes this, and despite how hilarious it is, it’s probably something that should be looked into and fixed when Season Four rolls around on June 3.

Best Gallo SA12 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

With the return of shotguns as secondary weapons, many Black Ops Cold War players have been bombarding their foes with deadly buckshot rounds. Here’s the attachments you need to make the Gallo SA12 even more lethal. 

The Gallo SA12 (SPAS-12) has been a fan-favorite ever since Modern Warfare 2 hit our screens back in 2009. This semi-auto shotgun is capable of dishing out some truly dizzying damage numbers, particularly when you use the loadout below. While it may not have the range of the game’s SMGs or assault rifles, it does have fantastic kill potential in close-quarter firefights. 

With its high rate of fire and fantastic hip fire accuracy, the Gallo SA12 is a great gun to use. If you’re after a snappy secondary that can melt multiple foes in a single clip, then be sure to copy this Gallo SA12 loadout for yourself.

The Gallo SA12 will be a great choice for those playing Nuketown ’84.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Gallo SA12 in Black Ops Cold War:

  • Duckbill Choke
  • 21.4” Reinforced Heavy
  • SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • STANAG 12 Round Tube 
  • Wire Stock 

The loadout for the best Gallo SA12 is pretty simple. First up is the Duckbill Choke. This muzzle widens the shotgun’s pellet spread, allowing you to catch multiple enemies in the pellet radius. It also makes hip firing even more viable as you don’t have to ADS in order to remain accurate. 

Unlike the Hauer 77, the Gallo SA12 has a much faster rate of fire thanks to it being semi-auto. As a result, this loadout utilizes the 21.4” Reinforced Heavy to complement this aspect of the gun. Not only does the 21.4” Reinforced Heavy bolster the Gallo’s effective damage range, it also drastically increases its fire rate. 

While you still won’t be able to effectively kill targets outside of any close-quarter ranges, the increased fire rate will keep you competitive against the likes of the MP5 and Milano 821.

The Gallo SA12 is till behind the Hauer 77 when it comes to popularity, but this could soon change.

Having attachments that bolster a gun’s ADS speed is usually the desired route to take, but the nature of the Gallo’s bullet spread enables us to focus purely on hip fire instead. The SWAT 5MW Laser Sight is the perfect addition as it increases hip fire accuracy by a massive 35%. 

Rounding things off at the bottom of the attachment list is the STANAG 12 Round Tube and Wire Stock. The STANAG 12 Round Tube greatly enhances the amount of ammo the Gallo SA12 can carry. This particularly important given the gun’s fire rate and two-shot kill potential. 

Meanwhile, the Wire Stock adds a small 10% increase to sprint to fire speed, enabling you to aggressively close the gap and barrage your enemies with lethal buckshot. It’s a pretty simple build, but one that works wonders, particularly on the game’s smaller maps.
