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.

Infinity Ward - Modern WarfarePiccadilly 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.

This Glitch on Piccadily needs to be patched. It is mostly used on infected and people keep getting nukes. It’s so difficult to kill the people camping in this spot. from modernwarfare

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.

Twitch star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has got an interesting FFAR loadout for Call of Duty Warzone following the recent nerfs to the DMR and other weapons. 

The meta in Warzone is constantly evolving as Call of Duty fans try and get a leg up on their opposition in any way shape or form. 

Since the launch of Black Ops Cold War, it’s been all about the DMR, Diamatti’s, and MAC-10, but recent nerfs have got players searching for different choices. Some have gone back to the Modern Warfare weapons – the M4, AMAX, and Kilo-141, for example – while others have tried to find answers in Cold War.

The FFAR, which resembles the FAMAS from years past, has been the answer for some. It’s even got NICKMERCS trying it out and dropping a pretty nice loadout.

The FFAR has become of the best guns in Warzone.

The FaZe Clan member unveiled the loadout he’s been using in his January 16 video, noting that, even though its an assault rifle, it might make some of the SMGs obsolete. 

“However, I do think this FFAR could replace a lot of the SMGs,” Nick said. “I think the overall kit is a pretty good kit, and if you want to have some fun, this is a great class to do that.”

The accuracy does take a slight knock in Nick’s setup, however, the FFAR does get a nice little boost to both the range and mobility. It’s not exactly going to be a sniper or a KAR, but for what it is, it’s certainly nice and up there with some of the best weapons around right now.

  • Barrel: 21.2” Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Ammo: Salvo 50 round fast mag
  • Stock: Raider Stock

The YouTuber does note, though, that it’s probably not going to be a class you see streamers running in tournaments. But, for a bit of fun and racking up kills, it’s certainly a nice change of pace. 

Plus, when the time comes and Raven rolls out a few more nerfs, everyone will be searching for the next best thing, and the FFAR should be up there. So, you may as well get used to it, if you’re not already.
