Modern Warfare 2 Patched, Multiple Issues Addressed

Although the multiplayer popularity of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is undeniable, the experience hasn't been without its fair share of problems across all three platforms.

However, many of these issues should cease once you've downloaded the latest patch, which has now gone live for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. It will actually address different problems for each platform; i.e., the annoying infinite ammo and Public "private" issue on the Xbox 360, the Prestige hack on the PS3, and the texture hack on the PC. Furthermore, some fixes apply to all platforms, like the balancing of the 1887, which should now make that weapon a little less godlike. The patch also allows Trophies to be obtained in SP and Spec Ops modes on the PS3 and more multiplayer servers have been added to meet the rising demand...perhaps Infinity Ward underestimated how many PS3 owners would purchase the game. Well, either way, we're certain this is only the start of patches and fixes for MW2 online, which is bound to break all the records set by its predecessor. Every online multiplayer experience can be improved in some way and you can bet that Infinity Ward will continue to keep an eye on things. Besides, they've done their job; responsibilities for the next Call of Duty once again fall to Treyarch, who has also abandoned the WWII setting in favor of a modern environment.

Hopefully, this big patch will have a positive impact and allow you to bypass some of your prior frustrations. But if you've got complaints or suggestions, feel free to tell us about 'em. You never know; IW might hear...

Wouldn't mind if the Prestige Hack Patch resulted in those hacking idiots being dumped back to lv. 1.

Man I think this title holds the award for the most patched in a short amount time. It's been barely 2 months and I swear I've downloaded like 6 patches.

They have earned the title Craptivision. It's good IW is addressing the problems but this to me shows lazyness. They should have spent more time testing. MW1 didn't need this many patches. What is IW doing?

Their arrogance at refusing to put out a Beta pretty much sums it up...they can thumb their nose at public betas, but the amount of glitches that can be found vs. in house testing is a no brainer.

from what i know theres been 4, and it takes 10 sec. to download each one. What the hell r u guys complaining about! Hell atleast they are doin there job, they could just let it suffer! KZ2 had its fair share of patches as well. I think your just complaining to complain about MW2. also as SWIM_Irr menitoned MW needed patches too IW just didnt bother!

Not every game is going to be released perfect people need to realize that and if a dev gives us a patch that takes 10 sec. to download that solves a majority of prolems until more occur we as gamers should be happy!

Actually this is like number 7 and the problem isn't downloading the patch it's the lack of attention and testing by IW. They're behaving like MS. release now an patch later when people start bitching. It's lazyness.

I'm happy IW is fixing the few minor glitches that made it into the game. But as the article pointed out, most of the bigger issues are with the various "hacks" that have been created by talentless cheaters.

A game of this magnitude and popularity unfortunately attracts this kind of unwanted attention by yellow-bellied hackers. Kudos to IW on the continuous patrolling of their game, and not just sitting comfortably on a mountain of gamer cash.

jawknee-

your complaining to complain jawknee. There is nothing to complain about! Ill put money on it that MAG has a few patches and look how long its been in beta! As i said no game will ever be 100% perfect, your just compaining to complain!

So what your telling me is IW is being lazy by fixing patches. your ass backwards, lazy would be making a single map pack and leaving MW with all its bugs as they did. that was lazy. This is progress dude! IW was confident enough in there testing and game that it would have no bugs! I know for a fact IW was testing in house long before the games release so its not like they did nothing! the problem is its online and thats a tough one to cure of bugs and it so happens it had a few! there cleared up now so quit complaining and go play the game, or a different one if you'd like!

Regardless of the quantity of patches released for MW2 it's still a broken game at the core. It's like throwing sugar on a pile of shit, it's still shit.

Your allowed our opinion, I just think your defending the indefensible. Release now and patch later shows a of a lack of respect for your fan base. It says, hey look we can release crap and the sheep will still buy it.

I write music, should I release a half assed album with dissonant chord progressions and hooks then say sorry! A patch is coming soon! No! I write the songs right the 1st time and make sure they are 110%.

As LimitedVertigo so eloquently put it. You can pour suger on a turd, it's still a turd.

Well the last patch seemed to make EMP's have a 50/50 chance of working and now if you happen to be reloading when you die you are reloading when you spawn. But asside from that it seems like they have fixed most of the problems.

Those effing 1887's pissed me off so bad. It was like people could almost snipe with them (exaggeration) But the range was so annoying. I say keep the damage but lower the range.

well dual shotguns would be nutty powerful anyways, but yes the range is rediculous and the spread was so exxagerated!

They could almost snipe with those things so dont exxagerate it was stupid! And the spread made it worse because if there crosshairs were within 3 inches of you, u still die! thats too much!

hopefully i notice a difference when i play next!

I second that. You COULD snipe people with dual 1887's. Too many times it has happened that I catch someone from an angle pump him full of lead, he turns and shoots one time with the dual 18's and IM DEAD, from a distance, no less!!!

i will confirm that it is possible to hit from a great distance with 1887s. I was getting pissed of when i kept getting hit with it so i tried it and that thing is accurate as hell.

My only real problem with the multiplayer on this game is that they allow too many fighter jets/helicopters up in the air at once. I think in MW1 there could only be 1 in the air at a time now everyone has one up there and you'll die come back and get gunned down again by the same gunship before you've even moved out of your spawn area. Frustrated me enough to stop me playing, then again I've been hooked on Dragons Age for the last month so no big loss.

What MW2 really needs is a hard drive install -the blu-ray is constantly being accessed while playing and it is actually causing "lag" because of disk reads during online game play -if you agree - hit up the IW forums and find the thread requesting a HD install also Twitter the hell out of 402.

This needs to be addressed.
