Joe Cecot, Co-Design Director of multiplayer at Infinity Ward, has revealed a number of fixes that players can expect in Modern Warfare Season 3 when it drops on April 8. 

With Warzone currently dominating the Call of Duty scene, some fans have felt that regular multiplayer itself has been pushed to the backburner. However, the recent announcement of Season 3 has got fans of the most recent CoD installment relishing what is to come. 

While we don’t have final, confirmed details of the content that will drop on April 8, any big update will bring with it a plethora of bug fixes. Thankfully, Modern Warfare multiplayer designer Joe Cecot has confirmed a number of issues we can expect to see patched.

Warzone has already hit 30 million players.

Modern Warfare Season Three fixes

Firstly, Cecot confirmed that a fix will be on its way for a bizarre tactical grenade glitch, which fails to give players a hit marker, even when they have hit an enemy. 

“Super weird glitch last night where I didn’t get a hitmarker or any indication when I stunned another player,” one Modern Warfare player said, “but killcam shows I definitely did hit him”. 

In response, Cecot stated that it’s not a glitch he’s seen before, but it’s one that’s now on Infinity Ward’s radar, and one we can expect to see patched in or before Season 3 commences. 

Next up, Cecot confirmed that the Season 3 update will feature tuning for shotgun slugs. Slugs are a possible attachment to a host of Modern Warfare’s shotguns. They drastically increase a weapon’s range, but rely on improved accuracy on the user’s behalf. 

One Modern Warfare player asked Cecot if tuning is in store, after a video on the Modern Warfare subreddit showed some bizarre inaccuracies in the slugs, despite the user’s crosshairs being precisely on an enemy. 

“I believe changes are in [the] Season 3 update,” Cecot simply responded.

Finally, Cecot confirmed fixes are coming to the purchasing of bundles. Users have recently experienced difficulties when purchasing bundles, particularly the Ghost bundle on Xbox One. In response, Cecot simply confirmed that the errors are “being worked on”.   

It’s important to remember that the Season 3 update will probably cause a number of bugs, as well as fixing them. However, Cecot’s swift responses reflect IW’s efforts to make Modern Warfare as bug free as possible.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

MrDalekJD is known for his videos on Call of Duty: Zombies.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
