The Call of Duty community is eagerly anticipating the October 25 release date of Modern Warfare, as Infinity Ward’s latest installment generates significant hype. But what requirements are there for the PC players? 

Call of Duty has, in recent years, put particular emphasis on trying to raise the profile of their games in the PC community. They have specifically used BattleNet to encourage PC players to play CoD; a game that has been traditionally console focused. 

The PC vs Console argument continues to rage on, with PC having some obvious advantages such as improved frame rate and FOV sliders that are, as of yet, not available in console CoD games. But, some PC players have been left feeling undervalued by the developers. 

Infinity WardModern Warfare will feature cross play between PC and consoles.

Activision Blizzard have now confirmed the minimum required specifications for a PC to run Modern Warfare, as well as the recommended specs. 

This gives players an idea of what is a necessity and what they will be able to do to maximize their experiences. 

Minimum storage space for Modern Warfare is listed as 175GB available and 8GB RAM memory. The full PC requirements can be seen below.

Storage

  • 175 GB available hard drive space

The requirements will not provide much of a surprise to dedicated PC players, whose PCs will likely already conform to the requirements. 

However, it’s worth checking if you’re waiting for Modern Warfare, to ensure you can get straight into the game when it releases on October 25. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare also marks the first time a CoD game will feature cross play – seeing PC players being able to compete against their console rivals. 

Maybe this feature will finally see a conclusion to the endless PC vs Console debate. Or maybe it’ll just exacerbate it as CoD players strive to prove their platform is the best.

Best Warzone kills against cheaters exploiting the Stim glitch

Taking matters into their own hands, some of Call of Duty: Warzone’s bravest players have, quite literally, gone out of their way to punish cheating exploiters who abuse the notorious Stim glitch.

As most Warzone fans have become familiar with by now, there is an unlimited Stim Shot glitch that pops into existence, gets patched out, and then returns every once in a while. The bug allows you to use an infinite amount of Stim Shots, enabling players to remain in the gas indefinitely and secure easy wins while those who play fairly die to the final circles.

Unfortunately, as time passes, more and more exploiters have become aware of the glitch and prone to abusing it. Fortunately, more and more players with competitive integrity have become aware of those exploiters and prone to exacting justice by punishing them.

While few things are more satisfying than a high-kill Warzone victory, one such thing is the cathartic sensation of a cheater being killed and therefore robbed of their illegitimate win. Highlighted by one of Warzone’s very best, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, here are the best kills against Stim glitch exploiters.

Unwilling to be denied their 100-kill victory, Jukeyz and his team got set up with self-revives, gas masks, and a UAV to go seek out and eliminate the exploiter in their lobby. Driving directly into the toxic gas, Jukeyz is able to hop out (as his driver is downed by the green cloud) and delete the prone cheater.

And Jukeyz isn’t alone in obliterating these exploiters. Reddit’s ‘thebigeasy31’ decimated the hubris of one such exploiter, who brashly thought they could start Stim glitching earlier in the game with a Most Wanted contact on his head. Instead, bigeasy gave him a bullet to the head.

And last, but certainly not least, Reddit’s ‘Millertime166’ took it upon themself to pull off a one-man vigilante act by seeking out a Stim glitcher on Rebirth Island. Heading into the gas, copping a Gas Mask, and getting into a vehicle, Millertime used their last remaining HP to kill off a silly cheater who was hidden behind a wall.

While the Stim glitch was supposed to have been removed during the January 13 patch, some believe it persists, albeit in a more limited fashion. Nevertheless, most expect it could possibly make a return at some point.

If it does come back, these players prove that the game’s developers are not the only ones who can counteract cheaters. Like those who killed off exploiters who were abusing the Promenade truck glitch, Verdansk’s finest have begun carrying out their own brand of justice.
