Infinity Ward has confirmed that there is a fix coming for Modern Warfare’s frustrating player collision issues, meaning it won’t be long before players are no longer blocked out by teammates.

Player collision issues aren’t exactly new to Call of Duty, with players known to go bouncing away from teammates. Whether you play casually or competitively, body blocking as it’s also known has been a problem for quite some time in CoD especially. 

Being blocked out by a teammate can throw off your timing and ability to beat someone else to a power position – putting you on the back foot in a game. However, these problems have seemingly been worse than normal in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, with players begging Infinity Ward to make some sort of change for a few weeks.

Call of Duty players have been reporting plenty of issues with Modern Warfare since it’s release.

Now though, it appears that their calls – and videos of accidentally being bumped up the stairs on Tavorsk District and into the waiting arms of an enemy – have been heard. 

In numerous posts to the Modern Warfare subreddit, users noted that the developer’s Trello board – where they confirm what bugs are being addressed and when fans can expect to see them fixed – had been updated with a confirmed change for the body blocking issue. 

“Fixed in a future update,” reads the tag given to the player collision issue, though it doesn’t say exactly when that fix will be rolled out. 

With the recent January 14 update being centered around new playlists for multiplayer and only being a few days old, it might be a little while yet before players are able to run around their favorite maps without being bumped along the way. 

Seeing as the conclusion of Modern Warfare’s first online season has been extended until early February, the fix could very well be rolled out as a part of the major update that also follows. We’ll just have to wait and see as to when Infinity Ward chooses to make the change.
