Modern Warfare killstreak bug totally breaks your aim

A bug in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare makes one killstreak a hazard to use as it can leave the player’s camera perspective completely broken after calling it in.

The Wheelson is a handy remote-controlled drone packed with an oppressive grenade cannon that can make its way through tight corridors in Multiplayer. The 7-kill reward can be tough to earn but once you do, the payoff can usually end with a few more frags to your name.

The Modern Warfare bug happened after using the Wheelson, but players are reporting a similar glitch with other killstreaks.

That is, of course, if the person maneuvering it can keep the six-wheeled rover on its driveable side over the course of the killstreak. If not, then they could be met with a hilarious change in perspective, like user ‘Bubbins123’ showed during their game on Gun Runner.

Maneuvering through the refinery plant, the player was coasting until they hit the Train Yard’s terrain which started to prove too much for the Wheelson.

Damn didn’t get any kill- What the fuck from modernwarfare

It looks like one side of the drone was propped on the train tracks below it. When moving up on a barrel, this caused the Wheelson to flip on its side.

This made the killstreak bug out, at first the game showed the player’s camera tilted while still in the killstreak before it started to get jumpy trying to reorient its overall position. Shortly after, the killstreak ended but not before completely altering the camera of the player’s in-game character model after exiting the Wheelson’s perspective.

“Dude had this happen to me with a Cluster Strike,” another player said in response to the clip, noting how it happened to them after using a different killstreak. “The game hit a serious lag spike and next thing I knew I came out with a 30 degree angle to the right.”

The glitch left the Modern Warfare player’s slightly askew than normal.

While this could be a reason for the bug, more people in the CoD community shared their experiences with a tilted camera after calling in a killstreak.

The Infinity Ward devs are actively working on fixing the biggest problems in the game, like Warzone’s demon gun glitch, among others.

If this bug proves to be a bigger problem for more Call of Duty players, then the Modern Warfare devs could step in to find a meaningful fix to the glitch.

Black Ops Cold War already set new Call of Duty player record in the Beta

The Call of Duty franchise is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon as Treyarch’s recent Black Ops Cold War Beta went above expectations and shattered records.

Ever since the release of the first CoD title in 2003, the franchise has only continued to grow. Year after year more players hop on board to see what the latest title has in store. Whether fans gravitate towards single-player campaigns, cooperative experiences, or classic multiplayer competition, there’s something for everyone.

2020 is shaping up to be no different as Treyarch is firing on all cylinders for the Black Ops Cold War release. Everything from Zombies to Warzone will be on offer and it’s already clear that the community is hungry for it all.

After an impressive Alpha test on the PlayStation 4 that became the biggest in franchise history, that record has once again been broken. This time, by the Black Ops Cold War Beta that followed just weeks later.

Having kicked off exclusively for PS4 users on October 8 before jumping to all platforms on October 15, the Black Ops Cold War Beta was played by a staggering number of people. In fact, it was “the most downloaded [Beta] in Call of Duty history,” the developers revealed on October 23.

No exact figures were revealed for the history Beta. Though it being publicly available across Xbox One, PS4, and PC over the final days was sure to have helped boost the figures.

Not only is this a hugely positive sign before the launch of Black Ops Cold War, but it continues a trend from previous iterations. 2019’s Modern Warfare also broke records with its early access Beta period. 

Last year’s records also didn’t come with any specific numbers, though Activision assured the Modern Warfare Beta attracted more players than ever before.

Also of note, those players logged more hours played than any Beta in franchise history. It’s now clear that Black Ops Cold War has been yet another step up in terms of early engagement.

The Black Ops Cold War Beta was live across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

It’s obviously too early to tell just how this might indicate sales for the release come November 13. However, to get into the Beta early, a majority of players needed to preorder on their platform of choice. So that’s certainly a good sign just weeks out from launch.

2019’s Modern Warfare topped over $600 million in sales across its first three days on the market. That instantly made it the highest-selling CoD of the generation. Though Black Ops Cold War could be on track to go even further this year.
