Insane Modern Warfare movement trick makes bunny hopping much easier

Modern Warfare players have figured out a new way of zooming through each and every map with a ridiculous bunny hopping movement trick. It couldn’t be simpler to learn, here’s what you need to know.

Getting from Point A to Point B as fast as possible has always been crucial in Call of Duty. Movement and positioning can often be just as important as aim. 2019’s Modern Warfare is no different as players slide-cancel their way to victory.

Slide-cancelling was the most common movement trick throughout the competitive season. However, Modern Warfare players have continued to uncover new mechanics. The latest might be the most powerful yet as you can slide further than ever before in the blink of an eye.

A fresh technique will have you throwing enemies for a loop in no time. Here’s how you can copy the trick for yourself and get bunny hopping across Modern Warfare.

“If you get enough speed and bunny hop your landing, you can get a bounce,” Reddit user ‘deathdude01’ explained on Nov. 3. Momentum is key to execute this new trick, but with the right speed, you can give yourself a ridiculous boost.

First, you’ll want to be on an elevated platform. Whether it’s some scaffolding or a nearby ledge, you need a good amount of height for this to work. Once you’re all set, you’ll need to sprint, jump off, then quickly slide and jump the second you hit the ground. Jumping right as the slide animation begins is key.

If timed correctly, the slide will take your momentum into account and launch you further than it usually would. Not only is this a huge play to get around the map much faster, but it can also throw off the aim of any nearby foes. One second you’re in their line of sight, the next you’ve zoomed right beside them.

Better yet, this trick can get you even further if you’re dropping onto a slanted surface. A few practice runs, and you could be lining up ridiculous bunny hops across every map in Modern Warfare.

This movement trick can be finnicky but with enough practice, it’ll become second nature.

Given that Warzone runs on the same engine, expect this movement trick to work in the battle royale mode as well. 

With slide-canceling and now super bunny hops to look out for, players will be getting around both Modern Warfare and Warzone faster than ever.

Season 2 of Black Ops Cold War is upon us, and while most players are excited about all of the new content arriving in the game, some are literally being prevented from playing the game after downloading the update.

Call of Duty is no stranger to bugs and glitches, ranging from minor annoying graphical bugs in Warzone to game-breaking glitches in the multiplayer experience.

Now, players are experiencing a whole new level of game-breaking bugs, as they can’t even get into the game.

The February 24 update was due to be an exciting one for fans, but now players are reporting that they can’t even load up the game at all.

BOCW players have to buy the game again?

After sitting through the painstaking download process, with Call of Duty games these days always growing in size, you just want to start the game up, see what’s new, and start ranking your Battle Pass up.

However, multiple players are reporting that the BOCW Season 2 update is leaving them in a loop, with the game asking them to purchase it, even though they already own it.

One user who experienced this was eortiz13 on Reddit, who reported that the game is asking him to re-purchase it before sending him to a screen that says he already has a copy.

just updated my game and now it wants me to re-purchase, but redirects me to a screen that says i already own it. cant even open up the menu. anyone else experiencing this? from r/blackopscoldwar

How to fix the issue

It seems that most people reporting this issue are playing on Xbox, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s limited to Microsoft’s console.

Here are some suggested fixes from other users on Reddit or those who have experienced it:

  • Contact Activision and Microsoft Support to see if they can help
  • Go to ‘Manage Game’ and ensure all content packs are installed
  • Uninstall then reinstall the game

It’s unclear what exactly is causing this issue, but it’s something either Activision or Microsoft will want to ensure is fixed as soon as possible,
