Modern Warfare devs address camo glitch that makes it impossible to aim

A terrible issue has been discovered in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare relating to camos, making it extremely difficult to find targets with weapons, and the developers have finally had their say on when it will be fixed. 

Infinity Ward has had to introduce fixes for a number of problems since the game was released in October 2019 and the game’s developers have got another one to deal with, in regards to one of their rarest weapon wraps.

Platinum, for example, can be unlocked after achieving the gold camo for an entire weapon class depending on what gun it is. Yet, those that have put in the hard yards and earned the right to use it have been left terribly frustrated after seeing something very strange happens to the screen when using it in some windows.


When appearing in a window, holding a weapon equipped with the platinum camo, players have noticed that sunlight can sometimes shine onto it so brightly that the screen is covered by a white shining light.

Reddit user, cammywrightlad, decided to highlight the problem with a post on January 20, showing a video of what the bug looks like in-game and it’s fair to say that those who grinded their way to platinum will be very disappointed by their reward.

“Glare on the platinum camo needs looking at, happens on most maps in most windows,” they wrote.

Clearly, this makes it not only extremely difficult to shoot targets but actually see the opponents as well – prompting a response from Infinity Ward on Reddit. Replying to a post on the game’s subreddit, artpeasant posted: “We have fixed this. Coming out in a near future update.”

There has been no word on when, precisely, this update will be rolled out but judging by the speed in which devs have answered the call from players, we would expect it to be right around the corner.

Hopefully, this bright light problem will be pushed into the darkness sooner rather than later.

The Desert Eagle, or the .50 GS as it’s known, is finally available in Call of Duty: Mobile. Once you get your hands on it, there are a few loadouts you might want to consider. 

Typically, with the start of a new Call of Duty: Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game add in a new weapon on top of the new characters, skins, perks, and maps. 

With the start of Season 12: Going Dark, the devs added new night mode maps – including Modern Warfare’s Hackney Yard – as well as everything they usually add, but they’ve added new events and challenges, notably, Small Arms. 

Completing the seven Small Arms challenges, in numerical order, will unlock the .50 GS handgun – which is just the Desert Eagle. It’s incredibly powerful, especially with a few different loadouts.

The .50 GS is powerful, but can be a lot better.

Best CoD Mobile close range loadout for .50 GS handgun

With it being a pistol, don’t expect to be using the .50 GS at long range. You might get some shots off, but it isn’t going to work as you might like. 

Instead, focus on getting up close and personal – even if that means shooting enemies in the back. For maximum damage at close to mid range, you’ll want an extended mag, a better trigger, and an extended barrel.

For these, take the MIP Extended Light Barrel, Match Grade Trigger, and Extended Mag A. Take a laser and a bit of tape too, for those panicky, unaimed shots. 

  • Barrel: MIP Extended Light Barrel
  • Ammunition: Extended Mag A
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
  • Laser: MIP Laser 5mW
  • Trigger Action: Match Grade Trigger

Alternatively, if you want to feel like you’re playing Modern Warfare 2, you can work in the Akimbo perk as well for a bit of additional damage.

This loadout comes courtesy of YouTuber TouchKing, who uses a muzzle, barrel, laser, and trigger action as well.

  • Muzzle: MIP Light Flash Guard
  • Barrel: OWC Marksman
  • Laser: RTC Laser 1mW

  • Perk: Akimbo

The .50 GS can be made incredibly powerful with the Akimbo perk.

As for everything else, you can pretty much finish your loadout however you want – including perks, equipment, and whatever else you want to bring into the fight.
