Infinity Ward has revealed a whole host of new bugs within Modern Warfare and Warzone that they’re either investigating or actively working on getting fixed – including addressing the dropping a weapon in the pre-game lobby and finding it in Verdansk exploit. 

Just like every other multiplayer game on the market, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has had its fair share of bugs and issues to deal with – be it something as simple as connection errors or bigger like having to reinstall the game over and over again.

Infinity Ward have been doing their best to combat the issues by rolling out updates on a regular basis, but with Warzone also adding different issues to their pile, they can build up.

Yet, the devs have revealed a handful of new bugs that have come to their attention and that may be fixed later down the line – with a few annoying problems finally making the cut.

Infinity Ward have been getting some bugs fixed for Modern Warfare.

The Modern Warfare developers updated their Trello board on July 13 to note that six new bugs have been flagged as either being investigated to figure out a fix or as being worked on currently.

These include things like players being able to drop a weapon in the Warzone pre-game lobby and then find it when they land, tracer bullets not having the desired visual effect when a different ammo type has been equipped, and players having their physics messed up by a helicopter after they jump out of one. 

You can check out a list of what was added to the Trello board below:

  • If a player drops their weapons as the game transitions to the Infil sequence, they can find and pick up their dropped weapons once the match has started.
  • The tracers lose their impact VFX when the ammunition is changed from the default 5.56 NATO ammunition on the M4.
  • Users are able to turn the riot shield sideways in the preview screen.
  • Officer challenges are referenced as “Elder challenges” in the AAR.
  • Reports that the AAR shows different teams/values than their own in Warzone matches.
  • In some cases, players’ physics can be controlled by the helicopter while they have a parachute out.

Some of these, including the problem where players drop a weapon in the pre-game and find it when they drop into a match, as well as the physics being controlled by helicopters, are labeled as fixed in a future patch.

However, it is not yet known when these fixes will be rolled out. In the meantime, fans can take solace in the fact that the devs are trying to root out problems no matter how big or small.

CoD Mobile devs explain why Overkill perk hasn’t been added yet

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have shed a little bit more light on why the Overkill perk hasn’t been added just yet despite being teased for a few seasons now.

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, fans of the game are treated to a whole batch of new content, typically including a new weapon, new map, new skins, and a new character. 

Back in CoD Mobile Season 8, the Overkill perk was supposed to be added alongside Quick Fix and Shrapnel. Though the other two made it in, Overkill was left locked until being removed not too long ago. 

The removal of the perk, which has been a staple in other CoD titles, has had fans questioning whether the devs are getting rid of it entirely, and now, they’ve shed a little more light on what’s happened.

Overkill was listed a perk for CoD Mobile but was never available.

Following their October 29 Community Update, where they revealed some additional content for Halloween, as well as going over bug fixes for the current season, the devs were quizzed on plenty of different topics – including Overkill. 

Players asked if it was still in the works and if they had any further info to add, given that players have been waiting quite a while to see it. “No, not yet. Still the same situation as before where we aren’t quite comfortable enough with weapon balance after the introduction of Gunsmith,”  the devs replied. 

Adding on to that, they continued: “We need weapon balance to be damn near perfect before we drop Overkill into the mix since that can have a huge effect on weapon balance as well.”

Given that the power of balancing is in the hands of the devs, there’s no telling as to when the mobile game will be balanced enough for Overkill to be introduced. 

Fans who have been waiting for the perk will be hoping that this day comes sooner rather than later, but, we’ll just have to wait and see.
