Tilting Modern Warfare glitch changes the way you view the game

In a game where accuracy is paramount, it can often be frustrating when your point of view is hindered. Amusingly enough, that’s exactly what occurred throughout this ridiculous Modern Warfare glitch that completely altered the state of Shoot House for one unlucky player.

Certainly no stranger to bugs, Infinity Ward’s latest iteration in the Call of Duty franchise has been host to a number of amusing glitches since release.

From killer chairs to healing grenades, there’s never any shortage of discoveries, but a newly found issue might top the pack as the most tilting to date.

Shoot House has been host to a number of bizarre bugs and glitches since its release.

Early into a game of Hardpoint on Shoot House, a close-quarters map that was added as part of the Season One content drop on December 3, all seemed to be going well for Reddit user ‘NmEBrecci205’ and their team.

Upon respawning after the first control point disappeared from the map however, their perspective was randomly tilted. With the camera slanted ever so slightly to the right, it appeared as though the player was constantly leaning, even while aiming down sights and sprinting at full pace.

Running through smoke, it took a few seconds for the player to register what was actually happening in-game. Stopping in their tracks to observe the odd glitch, it became clear such a tilting bug would lead to nothing but frustration.

Hovering over the ‘leave game’ option, they soon changed their mind and decided to continue playing with the game-altering perspective in effect.

There’s no telling quite how well they performed with such an odd bug impacting their experience, but it could come with its own benefits. 

While leaning is possible when close to certain terrain in Modern Warfare, character models always change back to the default stance when out of cover. With the camera always angled slightly, it could open up new opportunities to peek around corners and get the jump on enemy positioning for instance.

Eerily similar to a recent exploit unearthed in the Overwatch community, it seems as though Activision Blizzard first-person titles can’t escape such world-altering glitches.

With no surefire way to replicate the issue, players won’t be able to exploit the bug anytime soon. But if you ever spot an opponent that appears to be walking sideways, at least now you’ll know why.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
