Call Of Duty: August 11 Patch Notes For Modern Warfare And Warzone

Two new patches are coming for Modern Warfare and the battle royale game Warzone; here's what we know so far.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone have received an update on August 11 that fine-tunes several weapons within the games. Senior communications manager Ashton Williams detailed on Twitter how weapons such as the FAL and M91 will receive increased damage, while a second patch--still to come--will also fix graphical corruption issues with weapons. The full patch notes from Infinity Ward can be found below for the update that's out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but be aware that server issues are impacting the games right now. The game's file size has grown over the last several months with huge updates, so ensure you have room on your system's drive. This is especially important on PC, taking up more than 200GB. If you are using a lower-capacity SSD or hard drive, that could cause problems.

The Holger light machine gun will also have increased damage range and ADS speed, while the Bruen MK9 will see its damage range reduced. General fixes have also been implemented for an error that players occasionally received when opening the weapon armory and an exploit in the Shooting Range trial.

Following the release of the update, Infinity Ward confirmed players are having trouble connecting to servers. The studio says it's working to resolve the problem but didn't offer any estimate for how quickly that might happen.

"We're looking into an issue where some players are unable to connect to the servers. We'll post another update when we have more information. Thank you for your patience," Infinity Ward tweeted.

Original story: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the battle royale game Warzone are set to receive a pair of new updates in the future. Senior communications manager Ashton Williams announced on Twitter that the first update will fix bugs, make some weapon tuning changes, and clear out an exploit.

The second one will address a "graphical corruption issue" related to weapons. It will also fix a problem that caused the "Play Again" option to break.

There is no ETA on when these patches will arrive, however. We'll report back with the full patch notes when they are published.
