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

Season 3 dropped on April 8.

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.

Warzone player discovers perfect way to counter Airport tower campers

A Warzone player has found the perfect way to counter campers in the Verdansk Airport tower, and it might be the best way to bait those annoying players out and get across the runway.

If you’ve played Warzone even once, you’ll know exactly which tower we mean: the one north of Airport that has only one way up, from which players can easily camp, scout out enemies and lay fire upon those trying to rotate to zone.

Even with the inclusion of external ziplines to many tall buildings in Verdansk, the tower still doesn’t have one, meaning that once players are up there, it’s incredibly difficult to get them down.

Typically, you’ll struggle in a straight gunfight against these players — so what you need to do is bait them out, instead, and capitalize when they’re distracted.

Tower campers are among some of the most annoying players in Warzone.

As showcased below by NadxCH, a helicopter could be your key to infiltrating the tower — though not how you might think.

While many people will have tried to attack head-on while in a helicopter, the plan instantly falls flat if the tower campers have a rocket launcher or explosives of some sort, that will see you and your team come crashing down instantly.

Instead, you need to assign a teammate to fly past in the helicopter after landing up top, and strike while the iron is hot. While the designated driver flies the heli in one direction, you’ll need to jump off the top and plan your parachute perfectly to land in the control room while the opponents have their back turned and are distracted.

Obviously, this will often be easier said than done. Jumping off the top of the tower and timing everything right to land in the control room is a skill you’ll have to practice over and over again to get right, so you’ll have to be confident you can pull it off first.

Secondly, you’ll have to rely on the enemy team being distracted by the helicopter. They likely will be, and will want to take it down while it’s so close, which is why it’s the perfect opportunity to strike.

Otherwise, you might find yourself trapped while trying to traverse the map — and there are few worse types of players to die to than those in Airport tower.
