Infinity Ward have responded after February 15’s Season Two update randomly removed killcams from certain multiplayer modes in Modern Warfare 2. 

Season Two of Modern Warfare was long-anticipated, bringing a huge number of changes to the annual installment. 

 A classic Hardcore mode finally came, as did a Treyarch-developed Ranked mode. 

However, the update also led to some unintended consequences in the form of bugs and glitches affecting the average player’s experience. 

One that was quickly noticed by players was the removal of killcams from certain modes. Highlighted by a fan via Reddit, they said: “After this latest update my killcam is gone completely. This is in Moshpit, Quick Play, and Ground War.”

Now, the devs have rolled out a new update to bring killcams back to all modes.

In a February 19 tweet, Infinity Ward said: “We’re investigating why Killcams are disabled in some game Modes.”

They did not clarify specifically which modes had been affected, but reports from players indicated that the bug was pretty widespread. It also appeared to be plaguing players on all platforms. 

Several hours later, the development team tweeted that they’d “released a minor update to address an issue that was preventing Killcams from working across all Modes.”

It’s unclear what exactly caused the killcam removal issue in the first place, but this patch should hopefully fix the problems for players across all platforms.

Given the presumed severity of the issue – accidentally removing a core CoD multiplayer mechanic – it comes as no surprise that Infinity Ward wanted to get this bug resolved as soon as possible. Thankfully, the team was able to roll out the fix in less than a day’s time.
