The developers of Call of Duty Modern Warfare responded quickly to an in-game glitch discovered on Picadilly where players can remain in an out-of-bounds area and rack up nukes in Infected. It can also be abused in other modes.

Since the game’s released in late 2019, Modern Warfare players have been quick to call out game-breaking bugs as they appear.

When these bugs appear, Infinity Ward is typically quick on the draw when it comes to resolving them, and they appear to be doing so again after something very game-breaking was discovered in the London-based Piccadilly map.

Piccadilly is a pivotal location in the Modern Warfare campaign, but not the most popular multiplayer map.

Reddit user 'C0NF3S' posted the glitch to the Modern Warfare subreddit, showing a camping spot that can be glitched into. The spot is outside the combat area, but once you glitch into it, the warning timer stops completely.

Player can stick their gun through the unopenable door that they walk through, and it’s very, very difficult to kill the person camping there.

C0NF3S claims it’s used a lot in the Infected mode, and allows players to rack up kills and use Nukes.

Piccadilly isn’t regarded as one of the game’s more popular maps, and players expressed frustration that such a frequent camping spot exists. They have evidently been using this spot extensively for a while now, across all kinds of game modes, to earn killstreaks from a safe area that's supposed to be out of bounds.

However, the player who posted the clip tagged Infinity Ward’s Sr. Communications Manager Asthon ‘VULCAN’ Williams, who immediately responded and said that it should be fixed in the next update.

Their most recent update on February 26, fixed a number of other bugged and broken issues as well, including the frustrating menu glitches, a problem with the Quick Fix perk, and an issue with killstreaks in the CDL rules playlist.

The next update, which doesn't have a date announced yet, is expected to include the fix for this Piccadilly glitch, as well as an issue with spawns and FPS in the new Rust map.
