Modern Warfare exploit allows players to carry three weapons

Players can carry up to three weapons in Modern Warfare, thanks to a glitch with the ‘Weapon Drop’ Field Upgrade.

There’s nothing worse than running out of ammo when you’re on the verge of your next killstreak. If you’ve been grinding Modern Warfare since launch, you’ve likely encountered this issue before now. 

Unless you’re running Scavenger – which is rarely the case, as most player’s sport Cold-Blooded – then you can likely sympathize with that feeling of entering a gunfight with no bullets in the chamber.

ActivisionIf your teammate rocks the ‘Munitions Box’ Field Upgrade then you might also be in luck.

However, one eagle-eyed player has uncovered another way of giving yourself additional ammo. Well, more specifically, adding a third weapon to your arsenal. 

First, you need to ensure that you have the Weapon Drop Field Upgrade enabled. Secondly, you need to call-in the Field Upgrade after enough time has elapsed. However, this is the crux of the exploit…

After calling in the cache of high-powered weapons, you want to leave your weapons holstered while you wait for it to arrive, the Redditor explains. 

As long as you remain in a holstered state when you collect your weapon from the drop, you’ll add a third gun to your ordnance.

The ‘glitch’ portion of this exploit is due to the lack of auto-switch animation from the character model. By drawing parallels to the Care Package killstreak, this is clearly an unintended bug. 

Although most Modern Warfare glitches are usually a hindrance to players’ in-game experience, this one will actually give them an advantage over the opposition, albeit unintended.

While Infinity Ward are likely hard at work working on a series of hotfixes for map glitches, friendly player-model collisions and weapon animation bugs (to name but a few).

So a glitch that actually favors players will likely be pushed to the back of the queue. However, expect to see more players running the Weapon Drop Field Upgrade, especially in Ground War game modes.

How to glitch outside Nuketown ’84 for free kills in Black Ops Cold War

While Nuketown has appeared in more Call of Duty titles than any other map, the new Black Ops Cold War variant has come with a frustrating issue that allows players to break out of the map.

Nuketown has long been a fan favorite in the CoD franchise. The close-quarters map is chaotic from start to finish as players jump right into the action without having to track enemies down. It’s now in its eighth version, though the new iteration has come with a painful exploit.

If you’ve played on an older version of the map before, you’ll likely know every little nook and cranny. Nuketown ‘84 still has one of these little secrets intact as RC-XD users can race around outside the map on a special path.

Typically, this is a good way to get your explosive buddy across to the other side of the map. It can travel safely and emerge without alerting nearby enemies. However, it turns out players can now access this space as well.

This area has only ever been accessible for the tiny vehicle, until now. Players have discovered a way to break through the traditional boundaries and camp outside of the map for some of the easiest kills you’ll ever see.

From this glitched location, you get a clear line of sight to the side of one of the houses. The most broken part of being here though is that your presence doesn’t have any impact on enemy spawns. They can still appear directly in front of you without realizing, leading to some effortless kills.

Dexerto staff personally encountered this issue while playing on PC. There appears to be a location right at the edge of the playable space that avoids the ‘out of bounds’ instakill effect.

Wedging yourself between some cacti and the fence will keep you alive outside of the map. Obviously, this can be shut down after a few kills once players realize your position. However, it could be too little too late.

Treyarch is yet to address this particular issue. However, something so critical is sure to be fixed in the very near future.

In the meantime, make sure you’re keeping an eye out for pesky enemies well outside the map.
