Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players have been left stunned at a ludicrous wallbang spot on the popular Azhir Cave map that has to be seen to be believed.
Wallbanging, or bullet penetration, is a part of any FPS game. Certain materials or walls are made penetrable, so players have to be cautious when taking cover behind them, but there are just certain instances where it shouldn’t happen.
While there are a number of bizarre bugs evident in Modern Warfare and people are still finding new features every day, this one is definitely something that needs to be looked at.
While playing Hardpoint on Azhir Cave and pushing towards the fifth hill on the map, Reddit user TheUnknownballer2 seemed to die from behind – but there didn’t appear to be anyone there.
It wasn’t until he saw the killcam that he realized his opponent was actually in the cave on the other side of the map, with no real view of UnknownBaller.
However, that wasn’t an issue, as his opponent did what any great Call of Duty player would do: he shot through the mountain. Somehow, the entire mountain is penetrable, and although it should have taken some time for the opposing team to get round to defend the point, it appears you can just shoot through the cave and hope for the best.
Obviously, this just shouldn’t be happening. With players in the comments experiencing an inability to shoot through things that seem they should be penetrable, such as sheet metal or even car windows, getting kills through thick rocks seems a little unfair.
This is something the Infinity Ward developers might have to look into, especially with other players commenting that they’ve experienced the exact same thing. They will be hoping that its something that will be fixed sooner rather than later.
