Joe Cecot, co-design director of multiplayer at Infinity Ward, has finally responded to a strange hit registration issue in Modern Warfare and Warzone, which has been affecting players for some time. 

While Warzone has been generally well received by the Call of Duty community, certain issues have emerged. Among more prevalent issues like hacking, a host of players have been reporting mysterious hit reg issues in Warzone and Modern Warfare.

It seems that some of them have now been explained, as Joe Cecot responded to a frustrated fan on July 19.

Infinity Ward have been getting some bugs fixed for Modern Warfare & Warzone.

The Twitter user simply asked: “Who do I talk to about this?” Attached was a Warzone clip, showing the player clearly aiming at an opponent, but his sniper shots failing to hit. To add insult to injury, the player is then downed by an opponent hitting their sniper shot.

Thankfully, Joe Cecot was on hand to clarify the issue, and offer a potential explanation. “Looks like misaligned collision,” he said. “Reported, thanks!”

While he did not delve any deeper, it appears that the wall on the rooftop was inhibiting the bullet from taking its normal path and hitting the player. In this case, it seems that incorrect textures are the root cause of the hit reg issues players have been experiencing. While this does not necessarily explain all of the problems, a number of players have been reporting similar issues.

Now that the problems are on Infinity Ward’s radar, we can expect a fix coming in a future update.

It’s not clear how much of the Warzone map is affected but, given the number of players who have experienced similar problems, it seems like multiple POIs are privy to the issues.

While not as game-breaking as some other Warzone bugs we’ve seen, it’s incredibly frustrating to have shots miss for seemingly unclear reasons. Hopefully a future patch spells the end to this particular set of issues.

With Black Ops Cold War just two weeks away from being officially released, Activision and Treyarch have officially unveiled all the PC requirements and recommended specs a fan could dream for, including what you’ll need if you want to run the game on high settings.

Black Ops Cold War is almost here and fans are starting to get hyped for the first-person shooter. With only two weeks left until the game’s official launch, most fans have decided if they are going to be picking it up or if they’re going to be skipping out on this year’s entry.

Up until this point, however, neither Activision or Treyarch given a ton of info about the PC version of the game. That’s now changed as the required and recommended specs have officially been unveiled, as well was the specs you’ll need in order run it on other types of settings.

Black Ops Cold War minimum PC specs

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit or higher
  • CPU: Intel Core I3-4340 or AMD FX-6300
  • RAM: 8GB
  • HDD: 50GB for MP only, 175GB for all game modes
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 670/Geforce GTX 1650/Radeon HD 7950

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core I5-2500K or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X
  • RAM: 12GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 970/GTX 1660 Super or Radeon R9 390/AMD RX 580

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs with ray-tracing

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3070
Activision
Activision released a handy graphic to explain to PC players what they’ll need.

Black Ops Cold War competitive PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080/RTX 3070 or Radeon RX Vega64 graphics

Black Ops Cold War Ultra RTX PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 3700X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 250GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080

As expected, if you want to run the game on extremely high settings, you’re going to need the PC to match it. That being said, the required specs are better than what was required in the beta, with the full game only requiring an I3 processor while the pre-release version needed an I5.

This, however, shouldn’t be surprise, as full versions of games are almost always more optimized than their pre-release counterparts. That being said, it’ll be interesting to see how bad the low-settings PC version looks once it’s live. Here’s hoping that it won’t be too bad.
