Atrocious Modern Warfare bug denies easy Execution kill

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare introduced execution which is supposed to be a punishment for players caught unaware by an opponent – that is unless a bug comes in for the save.

Infinity Ward’s latest title in the legendary CoD franchise has been a big success for the company, but the early goings on in the game have a lot of players frustrated because of the high volume of bugs and the like.

Though a particularly jarring glitch was found by Reddit user ‘AuroraUnit117,’ who managed to get the jump on a player scoping down their sights. Naturally, this presented the chance for a free kill, though it didn’t exactly play out that way.

Infinity WardExecutions are supposed to be a safe bet to land a kill, but it wasn’t for this Call of Duty player.

After finding their prey, AuroraUnit chose to put a bit of style on the kill cam by opting for the Execution animation, thought the character models had a strange interaction with the nearby walls.

The opponent was nestled near the corner of the room that had a bench lined up against the wall.

Unfortunately for the executioner, when their character’s model picked up the opponent and proceeded with the body slam, it looks like there were a few too many obstructions that made the animation bug out.

But instead of just robbing the player of the cool animation, both players came were left standing at the end of the play.

Even though the two seemed to momentarily freeze from stunned confusion, the opponent had a reaction just a split second quicker than AuroraUnit.

The other player dodged AuroraUnit’s gunfire, and followed it up with a quick shot from their Model 680, which instantly took them out.

A member of the Infinity Ward team followed up the post with a comment of “Thank you for the video!” which has garnered 700 downvotes at the time of writing.

Among other things, players have also been noticing bizarre spawns throughout matches which makes it hard to strategize during a game, as well as a problematic glitch that lets players see opponents’ nameplates through walls.

There are a few things the Modern Warfare devs’ agenda to fix in the game, which will hopefully mean a major patch will be on its way soon.

Black Ops Cold War Zombies crafting table: everything you can make

Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode includes a number of different additions and changes but one of the biggest is the upgrades that have been made to the crafting system, which is now more refined than previous titles. Here’s what you need to know.

With Black Ops Cold War, Treyarch has overhauled the Zombies experience to include a slew of new features, as well as a seemingly brand new storyline. The mode is very different when it comes to its previous entries, while still keeping the same spirit and concepts that fans have loved for years now.

One of the bigger changes to the mode, beyond the exfil function, is the game’s new crafting table feature, which allows players to make everything from grenades and equipment to scorestreaks. Here’s how it works.

Black Ops Cold War Zombies Crafting Table

Activision
The crafting table allows players to get equipment and scorestreaks using salvage.

While crafting tables have appeared in previous Zombies entries in one way, shape, or form, this overhaul in Black Ops Cold War completely changes up how it’s used.

Instead of players having to roam around the map, searching for specific parts, and then returning to the table to build the item, players now collect salvage and random parts from Zombies when they’re killed. The more salvage you have, the better items you’ll be able to build.

For example, 50 pieces of salvage will get you allow you to build a bow, while 250 will get you in control of a Chopper Gunner.

What items are available in the Crafting Table?

Activision
Better items, like the Chopper Gunner, will cost more salvage.

Right now, there seem to be four Tactical items, five Lethal items, and five support items (scorestreaks). Each item can help you in a different way in-game and most are based on items featured in the base Multiplayer mode.

The only exception to that rule is the Monkey Bomb, which obviously returns from previous Treyarch Zombies titles.

  • Tactical
    • Stim shot
    • Stun grenade
    • Decoy grenade
    • Cymbal Monkey (Monkey Bomb)
  • Lethal
    • Tomahawk
    • Frag grenade
    • Semtex grenade
    • Molotov
    • C4
  • Support
    • Combat Bow
    • Sentry Gun
    • War Machine
    • Self-Revive
    • Chopper Gunner

Crafting Table locations in Die Maschine

While Crafting Tables don’t require anything to unlock, they seem to be few and far between on Die Maschine. There’s one in the main spawn room, allowing players quick access to a table in the early game, but the only other table seems to be right outside the underground facility’s automated doors.

This means that if players want to build some equipment, they’ll have to make their way to those two stations. There could be more around the map but right now, those seem to be the only options for players.

Here’s hoping that subsequent maps have more tables and that more items get added to each crafting station.
