A glitch has been found in Modern Warfare’s classic Infected game mode which has prevented players from dealing enemies any damage with their melee attacks.

Infected is one of the most popular Modern Warfare playlists for those looking to show off their survival skills and has been a fan-favorite in many of the past Call of Duty titles.

Following the recent May 19 update, which saw the introduction of the Reinfected Ground War playlist, along with some other changes, players have uncovered a glitch which made the opposing survivors almost invincible.

The fan-favorite Infected playlist in Modern Warfare requires players to survive for as long as possible.

A clip of the bizarre bug was first shared by u/Broncos57 on the Modern Warfare Subreddit, highlighting that they were unable to do any damage with throwing knives or melee attacks to the last player remaining, even at point-blank range.

After chasing down the lone survivor during their Infected match and connecting on a throwing knife, Broncos57 climbed onto the back of the player’s ATV as they were making their escape and continued to dish out punches and knives.

The opposing player seemingly absorbed all of the damage, without so much as a flinch, and one of the throwing knives that was used even passed through the survivor and bounced back off the vehicle, killing the infected player to add insult to injury.

The survivor managed to drive away from the pack of Infected relatively unharmed and secured the 1v39 clutch victory after the timer ran out.

It is unknown what exactly caused the bug, but some players suggested that it was likely due to the weird interactions that can occur when standing on top of a moving ATV.

Iconic Call of Duty Raid map spotted in Black Ops Cold War files

Eight years after its introduction in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops 2’s Raid could finally be returning in a mainline entry as files for the iconic map have been uncovered in Black Ops Cold War.

Treyarch’s fan-favorite Black Ops 2 released in 2012. Since then, we’ve seen eight new titles come and go. In that gap, Raid has only made one other appearance in a global title, that title being Call of Duty Mobile.

While other maps have been rereleased countless times, including seven remakes of Nuketown alone, Raid has been left in the past. However, that’s about to change according to the latest leaks.

After an extended period in the shadows, Raid could finally be thrown back into the spotlight soon. Dataminers have uncovered a line of code relating to the map in Black Ops Cold War, suggesting that we’ll see it return in Season 1.

As a huge influx of Season 1 content slipped through the cracks on December 1, one key line stood out from the pack. ‘S1_map_raid_tu_cairo’ was plucked directly from the latest version of Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, this doesn’t outright confirm Raid is a guarantee for the next Season. This is the first official reference to the map in quite some time, though, so it’s safe to assume Treyarch has been working to bring it back to life.

Raid might finally be back in a mainline CoD title for the first time since 2012.

The original map quickly became a favorite for its unique design. There were distinct sections that paved the way for vast combat opportunities. Both close-range and long-range loadouts could feel right at home on Raid. On one side you had a wide-open area with a high ground advantage for one team next to a  

On the other, you had a circular area perfect for flanking opportunities. Meanwhile, in the middle lane, you’d often catch snipers peeking across from either side in a near-symmetrical layout.

One of the more interesting tidbits from this datamine is the final word. Cairo is the capital of Egypt. The original version of Raid was set in Los Angeles. So when we see this new version, it could have a fresh coat of paint to fit the locale.

It was an extremely popular competitive map throughout the year of its initial release. Given it worked quite well with essentially all objective-based game modes. From Hardpoint to Search and Destroy, Raid was often a favored pick.

Season One of Black Ops Cold War kicks off on December 10. There’s no confirmation we’ll see Raid in-game from this point on, so do take this leak with a grain of salt until then.
