Modern Warfare players call for Infinity Ward to fix ‘invincible’ exploit

Players have found a new way to become invincible in Modern Warfare and the community is demanding a fix from the developers at Infinity Ward.

In a series where time-to-kill is absolutely crucial in promoting fair and balanced competition, gaining the power of invincibility is nothing short of game-breaking.

Despite this, players have discovered a new method of gaining bullet-proof skin and the Call of Duty community wants to see it put to an end immediately. 

Infinity Ward
The exploit is accessible on Aniyah Palace.

While a number of invincibility bugs have popped up since the release of Modern Warfare, the latest issue appears to stem from one map in particular.

One of the Ground War maps in Infinity Ward’s latest,  Aniyah Palace is a sprawling battlefield that has been translated over to the Infected playlist. 

Unfortunately, players have spotted an exploit while jumping over certain terrain. While positioned in the upper left corner of the map, there’s a sectioned off area covered in barbed wire to indicate anyone beyond the point is out of bounds.

Jumping directly on top, however, glitches players inside the terrain. From there, they can shoot down on nearby foes without taking any damage in return.

New invincible spot in giant infection. Please fix this ASAP from modernwarfare

Fortunately, the exploit locks players into a single position. So if you’re able to steer clear of that side of the map, you won’t run into any trouble.

Due to the nature of the Infected gametype, however, it is a clear cheat as players are unable to take out anyone utilizing the exploit.

Thus far, no one has been able to figure out a consistent method of dealing with the cheaters, though some have suggested that walking directly under them could do the trick and allow damage to go through. 

Infected. This needs to be fixed…Please from modernwarfare

While Infinity Ward is yet to comment on the issue, it has certainly become a hotly contested subject in the community and will likely see a fix in the near future.

For the time being, if you find yourself loading into an Infected match on Aniyah Palace, be sure to keep an eye out for players looking to exploit the issue as you can easily gun them down before the glitch comes into effect.

Empire continue championship form, FaZe (and Surge) falter

The Dallas Empire were the best Call of Duty team in 2020 and that form has lasted into 2021. The day started with 2020 MVP Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro racking up 35 kills and just 17 deaths with almost two minutes of hill time on Map 1, but then it became the Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal show as the upsurging player hit star form with some huge clutches.

With Empire cleaning up their former teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks’ New York Subliners, the day moved on with two tight Map 5’s. First, Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov and the Los Angeles Guerrillas outdueled a revamped Seattle Surge 3-2 and then, in a twist few saw coming, the Florida Mutineers came back against the Atlanta FaZe.

As Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno returned to the form that earned him MVP candidacy in 2020, the Mutineers flew back from a 2-1 deficit and eventually clinched the 3-2 victory against a FaZe team who stood near the top of most standings for this season.
