Joe Cecot, Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at Infinity Ward, has responded to multiple Modern Warfare bugs, indicating that fixes will be coming later in the ongoing Season Three. 

Warzone is currently the fan-favorite mode, and some fans feel regular Modern Warfare’s multiplayer is being left to fend for itself.

However, Joe Cecot, one of Infinity Ward’s senior developers, has responded to a number of players experiencing bugs. Given the release of Modern Warfare Season Three on April 8, it’s unsurprising that a number of new issues have emerged. We can expect to see most of the following bugs fixed before Season Four begins, in late May or early June

Arguably the most notable of the bugs Cecot responded to was a fairly significant SnD issue. The bug enables players to move around the map 10 seconds prior to the round actually starting. 

This is obviously a pretty significant glitch, enabling players to get into enemy spawns and kill them straight away. Unfortunately, Cecot replied: “Awful bug that we don’t have a repro in dev for.”

While there’s not currently a fix in the works, the severity of the bug means Infinity Ward will be working hard to find a patch. Hopefully it comes soon.

Another couple of bugs responded to by Cecot relate to Ground War spawn issues - on the maps Aniyah Palace and Downtown. 

While the Downtown glitch spawns players under the map, the Aniyah Palace issue spawns players on top of the main building. Players struggle to get out of these bugged-spots without killing themselves and hoping the next spawn is normal. 

With both issues now on IW's radar, we can expect fixes to come swiftly for the minor spawn errors.

The final issue Cecot responded to relates to a claymore kill challenge players have to complete. Despite fans racking up the kills with claymores, many have noticed that their kills aren’t counting towards completion of the challenge. 

Thankfully, Cecot confirmed that a fix is “in the works”, meaning we should see this patched in Modern Warfare’s next meaningful update.

It’s important to remember that the majority of bugs were probably caused by the large Season 3 update. However, Cecot’s swift responses reflect IW’s efforts to make Modern Warfare as bug free as possible.
