Day 4 of the PlayStation 4 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta Open Beta is wrapping up, and Infinity Ward has shared on Reddit a recap of the day, including what they’re looking into after Day 4 and more.
The studio is continuing to look at the feedback from the fans on the spawn issues, working to fix a lot of the bugs including the Parties having to be disbanded, Cruise Missile issues, and more.
The studio also provided an updated schedule for Weekend 2 of the Beta, which begins Sept. 19.
FROM INFINITY WARD:
It’s the final full day of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Open Beta and we want to send our sincerest thanks to everyone who hopped online and joined the action. Since Thursday, you’ve been sending us your feedback all across social media, giving your honest suggestions and feedback, and we couldn’t be more grateful. We’ve been reading all of your comments and been discussing them here at the studio each day. It’s a heartwarming feeling to see so many of you invested in Modern Warfare and doing everything you can to help us as we look towards launch on October 25th. Thank you all so much!
Now, let’s look at some of the topics you’ve all sent our way since the start of day four:
You all have shared some pretty amazing and insightful feedback so far. Please keep in mind that if you don’t see your issue fixed by weekend two, please know that we’re working to polish all of the feedback by launch. This definitely isn’t all of your feedback, but let’s take a look at some of the issues we’re looking into…
- Connecting to Online Services: Some players are unable to connect to online services. If you’re still having this issue, please feel free to PM me your PSNID so we can further investigate.
- Weapon Attachments: In some cases, weapon attachments are not unlocking after reaching the required level. This is being investigated.
- Spawning and Visuals: Spawning is currently inconsistent on some maps, so thank you for sharing your videos with us and sharing your feedback. We’ll continue to monitor the spawn system and we’ll update you if we deploy any changes. We will also be looking into lighting and exposure on various areas of the map, such as how you view dark rooms from the outside of a building and vice versa, for example.
- Recon Drone: There are two noted issues with this Killstreak. One: UI elements remain on the players screen after using the Drone. Second: Thermal function on the Drone causes the map below to become discolored.
- Weapons clipping through the Operator Character Model: On occasion, the AUG will clip through the arm of an Operator when viewing in the matchmaking or Operator selection screen
BETA WEEKEND 2 SCHEDULE:
This weekend, we’ll be kicking off weekend two of the Beta. We’ve already hinted a bit at Ground War, where you’ll take on more enemies in an all-out battle of 32v32 on a new map, Karst River Quarry. Not only that…but we’ll be bringing more players into the fight with Crossplay.
- Early Access: Xbox and PC – 10AM PST September 19th – 6PM PST September 20th. Also during this time is the Open Beta for PS4 players.
- Open Beta: ALL PLATFORMS – 6PM PST September 20th – 10AM PST September 23rd
As a side note here, the timing of when the Open Beta goes live on Xbox One and PC was updated. Rather than going live on Saturday, Sept 21, the Open Beta on Xbox One and PC will begin Friday, Sept. 20 at 6PM PT / 9PM ET.

Modern Warfare players frustrated after mid-game loadout edits disabled after Warzone glitch
Modern Warfare players have been left frustrated after a Warzone glitch has forced devs to remove the ability to edit classes mid-game.
Modern Warfare players can no longer edit their loadouts mid-game, thanks to the feature being disabled in Warzone after it caused several bugs and exploits.
The Warzone Season 4 update gave battle royale players the option to edit their loadouts in the pre-game lobby. This was a highly requested feature, but Raven Software was forced to remove it after players could bring their loadouts into the start of the match, get infinite Dead Silence, and even exploit the game to get access to Weapon Blueprints and camos.
However, the solution has left Modern Warfare players frustrated as they can no longer edit their classes during multiplayer matches.
Call of Duty’s new joint progression system has allowed 2019’s Modern Warfare to stay alive and active long after its content cycle ended. However, MW players have been frustrated that the game has become a ‘Cold War advertisement’ and want the game to become separate once Vanguard releases.
Raven Software were forced to disable the ability to edit loadouts in Warzone’s pre-game lobby and in matches of Plunder after players found an exploit that gave them free camos and Blueprints, even getting Dark matter on Modern Warfare weapons. However, this also affected Modern Warfare.
Posting to Reddit on July 22, BeneficialOstrich69 pointed out that they could no longer edit their loadout during matches of Modern Warfare following this change. This wasn’t a glitch on their end, as several other players reported the same issue.
Players were frustrated, saying they were taking the system, which has been in Call of Duty for years, for granted. “So people who play only multiplayer suffers cuz of warzone,” stated one player.
While the camo swap glitch was much more common in Warzone because of Cold War weapons being there, it could still be accomplished in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer.
Once Raven Software figures out how to prevent the glitch, the ability to swap loadouts and camos should appear back in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer alongside Warzone, Plunder, and the new Payload game mode.

What is the average Call of Duty: Modern Warfare K/D ratio?
Despite how long Modern Warfare has been out, players still wonder how their K/D compares to everyone else, and we have a solid answer.
Modern Warfare is still a very popular game in 2021, and we’ve gathered some data to see what makes the cut as an average K/D ratio.
Despite releasing in November 2019, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has managed to retain quite a bit of its fan base. Some players haven’t gotten on board with Treyarch’s Black Ops Cold War, or enjoy Modern Warfare and use it to unlock guns, camos, and attachments for Warzone.
In any event, tons of games of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare are still being fought out each day, and K/Ds are changing all the time. For those who don’t know, a kill-to-death ratio is how many kills a player manages to achieve for every death e.g if you finished a game with 2 kills and 1 death you’d finish with a 2 to 1 K/D.
But what is the average K/D in Modern Warfare? Let’s find out.
Modern Warfare 2019 average kill-to-death ratio
It needs to be said that lobbies and K/Ds have been greatly affected by the controversial matter of SBMM.
SBMM has been looked on negatively by the majority of the Call of Duty community as it has taken some of the mystery and fun away from matchmaking.
It’s also meant that better players will be punished more regularly by being placed in better lobbies. As such, the average K/D is basically lower than it has been in recent games.
The general consensus is that if you are in the 0.85-1.05 K/D region, then you’re in a decent spot in Modern Warfare. In early years, a solid 1.00-1.05 could be considered the minimum for a KD ratio.
It becomes quite self-explanatory after this as if you’re under 0.85 then you’re probably falling a bit below the average K/D ratio. However, if you’re above 1.05, then you’re definitely doing better than the average Modern Warfare player.
If you’re massively well below 0.85, then you might want to reconsider the strategy and weapons you’re using. Conversely, if you’re smashing well above a 1.05 K/D ratio, then you know what you’re doing.
