Modern Warfare Season One update breaks S&D with absurd glitch

Season One of Modern Warfare is officially upon us, however the major update has introduced a game-breaking Search & Destroy bug and the Call of Duty community could not be more frustrated. 

Infinity Ward implemented a slew of fresh content with a major Season One update on December 3. From weapons and emotes to a slew of cosmetic items, there’s plenty to chase in the brand-new seasonal Battle-Pass. 

Unfortunately however, the v1.10 patch that launched alongside the inaugural season, has introduced an assortment of devastating glitches and bugs. One such oversight has the hardcore Call of Duty community up in arms as fan-favorite game-type Search & Destroy has been dramatically impacted.

Infinity Ward - Modern WarfareCyber Attack might see an uptick in play until this ridiculous S&D bug is removed.

Showcased throughout a December 3 post from ‘caspvr’ on Twitter, the unfathomable oversight stems from the bomb-carrier in Search & Destroy. 

An issue that hadn’t been present since the launch of Infinity Ward’s latest on October 25, the latest update now ensures that any player firing a non-silenced weapon while carrying the bomb, will be put on full display for the enemy team. 

Rather than simply showing an ordinary red-indicator to highlight the enemy position, players are now shown to be carrying the bomb.


A major source of intel in any given round of Search, the bomb carrier is a critical focal point for the defending team. After all, knowing the position of the bomb allows you to focus your strategy on one particular bomb-site, rather than scattering teammates across the map. Thus, there’s no denying just how devastating this newfound glitch could be in a competitive game.

Responding to the issue at hand, Infinity Ward’s communications manager Ashton Williams questioned whether the bug was only prevalent in the “pause menu.”

“No, it happens on [the] mini-map also,” one Call of Duty fan explained. “Groundbreaking glitch for competitive. Needs a patch now.”


Being able to lock-down the bomb-carriers position in each and every round is likely to invoke drastic change in the core game-mode until an update is released. 

“This has got to be a bad dream, someone pinch me,” Reddit user ‘Popeeeee’ expressed upon witnessing the absurd bug in action.

There’s no telling quite when another patch will be released, though this is undeniably an issue that Infinity Ward needs to get on top of in the immediate future.

The full seasonal update introduced a wide array of new maps and even a new mode in Reinforce. Full patch notes for the beginning of the inaugural season can be found here.

Additionally, a fully-fledged Battle Pass accompanies the dawn of the first season and you can get up to speed with every single reward using our dedicated guide.

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

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.
