Infinity Ward has pushed out a small patch to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer and Warzone, this time addressing a few bugs littered throughout the game.

Season 4 launched on June 11, and brought a ton of new content to the game – including a new multiplayer map, a vast assortment of Battle Pass tiers, and three in-game events for Warzone. Fortunately, after discovering there were some issues with each of those, the game’s developers have stormed in with fixes.

These updates should rectify the issues players were having with the new multiplayer map, Scrapyard, and its spawn locations, the inability to use Battle Pass content, and the frequency of in-game Warzone events.

 

This is a relatively tight update, as it covers much less ground than a fat one like Season 4’s launch. But it’s a necessary one, specifically for Scrapyard—which is the latest map to suffer from bugged spawns.

Modern Warfare June 13 patch notes

  • Fixed Scrapyard spawns, ensuring players don’t spawn out of the map
  • Fixed players’ inability to use Battle Pass content
  • Fixed “frequency” of the three new events added to Warzone

 

Infinity Ward
The new Scrapyard map is the latest iteration of a fan-favorite.

Scrapyard has been a highly anticipated map for a while now, having existed in earlier Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the more recent Call of Duty: Mobile, and essentially serving as an area of Warzone’s Verdansk map in Zhokov Boneyard. But, after being thrown into Season 4 as a 24/7 option, it was discovered to have bugged spawns that would put people outside of the legal combat area. This game-breaking bug seems to have now been fixed, as quickly as it appeared.

Similarly, the second fix simply addresses an issue in which players were unable to use items they earned or purchased through the Season 4 Battle Pass. It’s not exactly certain which items were at the center of this problem, but all appear to have been resolved.

Conversely, the third patch note appears to have tackled the spontaneity of Warzone’s new events. The Season 4 patch notes maintained that these “events can happen in any given match without advance notice.” It’s unclear exactly what the issue was with their frequency, but developers have patched their randomness to ensure they fit initial intentions.

 

Infinity Ward
Warzone’s new Supply Choppers are a great way to earn some insane loot.

Only time will tell what other bugs surface in Modern Warfare and Warzone’s fourth season, but it’s a positive sign that Infinity Ward has addressed these three so quickly. In the spirit of transparency, the team regularly updates a Trello board with issues they’re working on.

Of course, the community should continue to raise any concerns that come up. Doing so will hopefully force the developers’ hands a little, and, eventually, maybe give us an answer to why we can’t consistently get kills in the pre-game lobbies anymore.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
