Infinity Ward have responded to complaints from Call of Duty fans regarding Modern Warfare’s spawn system, which has caused issues throughout the second beta weekend.

Modern Warfare’s final beta period is drawing to a close, with players hopping into their last few games hoping to get a taste of things to come when the full game launches in October, and help Infinity Ward iron out any issues before fans get their hands on the title.

One of those problems according to beta players is the spawn system, with many heading to the /r/ModernWarfare subreddit to voice their annoyance at the current state of respawning.

Infinity WardModern Warfare’s spawn system has frustrated some players.

In a post uploaded by /u/Finesse141, he claimed he had just receieved the “Guinness World Record for the worst spawn in MW beta so far, including a clip to show what he had just witnessed.

In a game of Domination, the player tried to defend the B flag, but got sniped for his efforts. Upon respawning, it’s fairly usual to pop up surrounded by your teammates, but for /u/Finesse141, he was met by a barrage of opponents, who promptly fired their weapons and sent him packing for the second time in mere seconds.

While the player was clearly upset, Infinity Ward have confirmed that they are aware of the frustrations surrounding the system, and plan to address them before the game’s full release on October 25.

In a comment left on the post, the development team’s Senior Communications Manager Ashton ‘ashonisVULCAN’ Williams stated: “Yeah, spawns are getting some love before launch,” before thanking the player for their video.

What form those changes will take once Infinity Ward gets their hands back on Modern Warfare remain to be seen, but fans will be hopeful that instances like this, where they spawn surrounded by their opponent with no chance to react, will be a thing of the past.

The purpose of multiplayer betas are to aid in the final stages of development, so while it may be frustrating, finding these problems now will likely mean they are less prevalent when the game is released on Friday, October 25.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is practically a household name for FPS fans and non-gamers alike. It’s no shock then that CoD fans were beyond excited at the possibility of a PS5 version of the game. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has become a staple title for the CoD franchise. After a recent clarification from an Infinity Ward dev that more content is coming soon fans have jumped back aboard the Modern Warfare hype train.

This announcement had fans scratching their heads over what new content would be released, especially when Black Ops: Cold War and its Warzone season are likely to be the focus of development for some time.

A reddit user, however, has sparked some life into the community by leaking a possible PS5 release for Modern Warfare in the near future.

Modern Warfare on PS5 Leak

A post and possible leak on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours by reddit user asjonesy99 has seized the interest of CoD fans from across the globe.

The post sees the possibility of there being a PS5 version of the title available in the near future. When purchasing the game, the dropdown menu shows the original PS4 version followed by a PS5 version.

The original post states that when he selects this option it becomes locked. After checking a plethora of other games, there are no other options for PS5 versions, so either this is a simple error or CoD are planning a future PS5 update for the game.

While excited, a lot of fans weren’t particularly shocked at this leak simply due to the popularity of Warzone, which launched alongside Modern Warfare in October 2019 and is fully integrated into the game.

The future is of course uncertain, and in turn this means that this could be nothing. However, it’s really exciting to think that Modern Warfare will be back with a bang to continue to inspire future generations of FPS players in the same way it has inspired the current one.
