Modern Warfare Stopping Power bug has annoying effect on recoil

A newly-discovered bug in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare appears to increase weapon spread after using the Stopping Power perk for longer than intended.

In Modern Warfare, Stopping Power Rounds are a Field Upgrade that loads a single magazine of special, high-caliber ammunition that deals much more damage compared to normal ammo.

The upgrade provides twice the damage of normal ammo, but as a result, sees a bit of increased weapon spread due to its higher caliber.

A new clip from Reddit user “FPSKrieger” appears to show a bug that keeps Stopping Power’s increased spread around – even when normal rounds are being used after.

“I just spent my Stopping Power rounds, so my recoil should go back to normal, right?” Krieger said in the clip. “Well, as you can see, it doesn’t.”

A bug I found with Stopping Power…Not sure if anybody else found it already, but hopefully we can get this patched in the next update! from r/modernwarfare

Even though the bug looks incredibly annoying, the good news is that it seems pretty easy to fix, as well.

Switching from the weapon you used Stopping Power with to another seems to reset the weapon spread and make things normal again.

“Small, weird glitch I think Infinity Ward can fix pretty easily,” Kreiger observed at the end of his demonstration.

They’re probably right about how easy it would be to fix, but whether or not Stopping Power will be back to normal after the next update remains to be seen.

ActivisionModern Warfare has been under heavy scrutiny since its October 2019 release.

In-game perks aren’t the only place bugs can be found in Modern Warfare at the time of writing: there’s also some interesting stuff going on at the top of the leaderboards.

Player “Anon83838719” currently sits in first with a score of over 121 million, which besides being impressive, is also impossible at this point after release.

So far, Infinity Ward hasn’t done anything about the player, who has been able to game the system to make it look like they’ve played 18 years of Modern Warfare in less than a month’s time.

In order to celebrate the upcoming release of Nuketown ’84 in Black Ops Cold War, Treyarch has announced a brand new, free Nuketown weapon bundle that can net players a slew of new and interesting items. Here’s how you can get your hands on it.

Black Ops Cold War is already shaping up to have a beefy post-launch content release schedule. Season 1 is set to start on December 10, 2020, but before that point, Nuketown ’84 is expected to launch for everyone on November 24, 2020, much to the excitement of the map’s longtime fans.

To celebrate the upcoming release of the location, Treyarch has revealed a brand new Nuketown-themed weapon bundle for Black Ops Cold War, which includes a ton of exclusive items. The best part is that getting your hands on it relatively simple.

Black Ops Cold War Nuketown Weapon Bundle

The Nuketown Weapon bundle comes with a slew of cool items.

First and foremost, the Nuketown weapon bundle comes with an exclusive weapon variant for the Hauer 77 shotgun, called the “Last Stop.” According to Treyarch, the weapon includes a 21.6 barrel extension, a 6-round extended magazine, a Commando Assembly stock, and a Milstop Reflex Optic. It’s also decked out in some sweet, Nuketown-themed designs.

In addition, the bundle includes six weapon charms based on the classic mannequins seen on the map, as well as a sticker, a calling card, and an emblem. It’s essentially a full-blown store bundle that Treyarch is giving away for free.

As Treyarch pointed out in their blog post, this bundle will also be available for use in Warzone when the Black Ops Cold War implementation occurs on December 10, 2020.

How to get the Nuketown weapon bundle

Getting your hands on this exclusive bundle is relatively simple. In fact, all players have to do to get their hands on it is log in to the game before November 20, 2020, at 10 AM PST (1 PM EST).

If you’ve already logged in to the game by this point, don’t fret, as you’ll automatically get the bundle when it releases on November 20, 2020.

If that wasn’t already enough, Treyarch is also including it with all purchases of the game up until December 4, 2020, so if you haven’t gotten Black Ops Cold War yet and you still want the bundle, now’s the perfect time to do so.

All in all, this seems like a nice reward for players who are excited about the upcoming return of a fan-favorite map. Hopefully Treyarch implements more of these types of deals in the future.
