Infinity Ward respond to bizarre Modern Warfare Finishing Move glitch

A developer from Infinity Ward has acknowledged that a fix is in the works for a peculiar bug with Modern Warfare’s Finishing Move animation.

Modern Warfare is no stranger to uncanny bugs. Since the game’s release, Infinity Ward have rolled out numerous patches in a bid to fix the plethora of glitches that have been spoiling players’ online experience. 

However, despite the developer’s best efforts, more issues continue to surface. Ironically, the latest issue is associated with a brand-new feature in the Call of Duty franchise, Finishing Moves.

ActivisionPlayers can unlock different Finishing Moves for their Operator in Modern Warfare.

Finishing Moves provide a different, yet satisfying means of dispatching your foe in Call of Duty. With each Operator boasting their own unique set of moves, players can customize to their heart’s content. 

Each Operator has their own signature method. For example, Charly favors a baton, while Minotaur prefers brute strength in close-quarters engagements. 

Despite the satisfaction that comes with taking out your enemy through via the stealthy means of a Finishing Move, the action is sometimes hindered by a bug which cancels the animation.

Reddit user ‘Average-Genius’ highlighted an occasion which showcased just that. After getting behind enemy lines, the player crouch-walked their way up to their unsuspecting enemy and executed the Finishing Move… or did they?

Starting to believe that i’m being trolled by IW? wtf is going on?! from modernwarfare

Average-Genius was caught with their pants down as their Finishing Move animation canceled mid-way through, which provided their enemy with the perfect opportunity to retaliate.

After the foe managed to cheat death, they capitalized on the blunder by tea-bagging Average-Genius — a victory dance to rub extra salt into the wound. 

Given the obvious unintended nature of the bug, an Infinity Ward developer responded to the post.“We are digging into this,” the dev opened. Fixing as soon as possible.”

At the time of writing, however, the issue is yet to appear on the Infinity Ward Tracker, where the developers highlight everything that they’re working on. 

Given that a variety of challenges revolve around the Finishing Move, players will be hoping that an intermittent issue of this nature is patched sooner rather than later.

Better than Karma & FormaL? Aydan reacts to Dr Disrespect praise | CharlieIntel Podcast #11

In Episode 11 of the CharlieIntel Podcast, battle royale superstar Aydan addresses the bold praise he recently received from Dr Disrespect, which caused quite the stir on social media.

Dr Disrespect recently raised a lot of eyebrows in the world of online gaming, particularly in the Call of Duty community, after he made bold comments claiming Aydan “could be the best controller gamer the world has ever seen.”

He called the former Fortnite pro “something else,” while insinuating that he was above and beyond the likes of Karma and FormaL, two CoD legends (and in the case of FormaL, also a Halo standout) who most consider to be the ‘GOATs’ (greatest of all time) in the console/controller scene.

When asked about it on the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan admitted to feeling very honored to be given such praise from the Two-Time and humbly named off some other controller players who he felt also deserved such recognition.

“It’s very honorable, of course, especially from Doc, how big he is,” he said on the CharlieIntel Podcast. “I think there are a lot of other talented controller players out there. For example Shotzzy, he won a Championship in Halo and CoD recently. FormaL also played Halo, so I definitely give them a lot of props.

“I’ve played Fortnite and Warzone and I’ve been doing well so I understand where he’s [Doc] coming from and on top of that, the world record game, which probably convinced him a little more. But I’ll take it, I’m happy with that.”
