Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare New Update Released, And We Have All The Patch Notes

War. War sometimes changes.

2 Comments

A new update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The newest title update includes a number of fixes and tweaks for Infinity Ward's latest, beginning with additional fixes that help improve stability and minimize the likelihood of game crashes.

Additionally, all battle chatter has now been removed--that is, the brief lines of dialogue that characters say during matches--from Modern Warfare's one-life modes. This sounds like a welcome change, as the more tactical, one-life modes require strategy and stealth, and hearing the loud callouts can lead to a negative experience. Connected to this, Infinity Ward has changed the sound of footsteps--the footstep sounds will now "filter out" based on occlusion effects.

Another change in the update includes how stun grenades can now disable claymores for 3 seconds. This is another big change, as players have been reporting that claymores can trend toward the over-powered side.

You can see the full rundown of changes to the gameplay and what's new in the multiplayer playlists below, as posted by Infinity Ward on Reddit.

Modern Warfare multiplayer design director Joe Cecot added that Infinity Ward is working on additional changes and updates to come later. In the future, Infinity Ward will release updates that further restrict the player call out logic and prevent enemies from hearing these call outs across all modes. There will also be further changes to weapon tuning and spawn locations.
