Strange Modern Warfare bug lets you silently crawl through closed doors

A new bug has appeared in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare that appears to let players crawl through unopened doors.

The highly-anticipated Modern Warfare finally released worldwide on October 25, giving fans their first venture back into the popular sub-series for the first time in almost a decade. 

However, while fans and professionals have been grinding out hours in the game, problems have arisen. There have been complaints about the game’s multiplayer maps, weapons, and even grenade usage. Outside of that though, bugs have also reared their heads, including ones where players can spawn without a weapon and others that allow them to see name tags through doors.

Infinity WardModern Warfare has been a hit so far, but players are finding bugs pretty regularly.

It the doors that have been causing issues again, with Chicago Huntsmen star Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson showing off how players can simply crawl through them – even if they’re locked. 

The Call of Duty world champion posted a video from his recent stream to his Twitter account, that shows him crawling through not one door, but two, in order to gain a silent, and major, advantage in a Search and Destroy game. 

While the game does show a ‘prone blocked’ message, as it would when you lay down in a spot you’re not supposed to, it’s clearly broken and not working as intended.

The majority of the replies seemed confused by how Arcitys had managed to uncover the problem, with Jamal ’Whea7s’ Lee saying “so like you kinda sorta cheating.”

Arcitys’ former eUnited teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks, whose Dallas Empire squad have dominated early online tournaments, jokingly asked why he was ‘teaching’.

The Infinity Ward have been quick on the draw to respond to problems in their new release, pumping out weapon nerfs and new content. 

It remains to be seen if they have a fix in the works for this crawling through door issues or if there’s nothing they can do about it.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
