As the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta soldiers on, so do the bug reports from its army of players.
Many of the issues with Modern Warfare are important to the integrity of the game, as you’d expect. Clipping, for example, is one (the last thing you want is players hiding in the wheels of vehicles). Shotguns don’t seem to work properly, either. And the spawns need some work.
But some of the reported bugs are a lot of fun – and one in particular makes Modern Warfare look like Cyberpunk.
Here’s a fun one: if you sprint near a door you can sometimes open it – even if you’re not actually touching the door or even springing away from the door. It’s the Force push bug, if you will. (By the way, Infinity Ward has said this is being worked on for launch.)
Speaking of doors, the following bug involves a door opening with such force, it blows a soldier across the room. (I love this clip because you can see the confusion running across the minds of both players present.)
I’ve seen multiple players report the following bug: it makes your soldier appear as if they’ve teleported into the game from the Nintendo 64.
This next one’s a bit nightmarish.
Speaking of nightmares, kill this one. Kill it with fire.
And finally, my favourite: this bug, experienced by it seems multiple players, turns Call of Duty: Modern Warfare into a neon-drenched Cyberpunk setting. It’s super cool, and makes me wonder what a Cyberpunk-set Call of Duty game might look like.
Now, reporting bugs is what betas are for, of course, and it’s good to see players report these bugs with a laugh rather than with a pitchfork. The launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a month away, so with any luck the developers at Infinity Ward will be able to sort this stuff out before release.
Well, not the Cyberpunk graphics. They can stay.
