Ever since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 launched, players have faced some issue or the other, ranging from launch errors to in-game glitches. Infinity Ward has been actively working to resolve these issues, and even launched a Trello board to help players keep an eye on their progress.
The latest patch update of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 has brought some major improvements to the game including fixing the camouflage selection screen.
Several minor bugs have also been fixed, such as physical collision and audio occlusion issues, and improving directional audio. The armor-piercing ammo is no longer a damage multiplier against armored foes; its utilization will be to heavily damage vehicles.
Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 recently surpassed 25 million users in just five days. After the patch update, players can filter their weapon camos, making the whole process of finding a specific cosmetic easier. Console players can use bumpers to switch between categories; this feature is yet to come to PC.
The majority of the Modern Warfare 2 players were especially disappointed with the game’s UI and UX. The gunsmith system lacked a proper blueprint, and the interface looked very similar to Hulu’s, an American web streaming service.
Here are the full patch notes:
