Modern Warfare devs ‘actively’ working on bug fixes and updates, updates to come over next few days

Infinity Ward’s Senior Communications Manager has responded on Reddit to many fans asking about where the Infinity Ward communication is since the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Fans have been experiencing many issues with crashing on PC and Xbox One, alongside other bugs across the entire game that have frustrated players, including challenges not tracking and more.

Infinity Ward’s Senior CM on Reddit says that they are actively working on fixes for the crashes on Xbox One and PC and hope to fix the issues.

Fixes are currently being worked on by numerous teams between IW and Beenox. We have a few updates we’re working on that should improve the stability and help prevent against crashes or any other issue you may encounter. It’s always helpful to let us know details of what’s happening when you encounter any bug or crash as it can help us prioritize and debug issues as they come in.

Willams says on Reddit that these updates will be going live over the next few days, but they don’t want to give exact timing as update releases can change.

We have a few updates going out over the next few days. I don’t want to give an exact time and date as we’re wrapping up testing on a few more things.

She also responded on a Reddit thread that was asking why Infinity Ward has been quiet since the game’s launch.

Here’s her full reply:

Really appreciate this, OP. We’ve been working on updates and patches for everything we’ve been seeing and plan to roll these out within the next few days.

Feedback comes in from everywhere, so we prioritize from most concerning issues, like crashes, unable to run the game, etc., and go down the list from there. Once changes from the team have been made, we pull them into a patch or a title update, depending on what the fix is.

The Known Issue list on Activision’s Support blog is a great way to see some of the issues that we’re working on along with threads you see tagged with “Infinity Ward reply inside.” We can post them here moving forward so there’s more eyes on it.

She elaborated on this a bit more on this, saying they have to balance out fixing current bugs while also ensuring new content is coming to the game.

I mentioned this in another thread, but we prioritize feedback as it comes in, most importantly crashes, unable to run the game, etc., and go from there. Devs also work on their portion of work too, so someone who works with vehicles is prioritizing feedback from vehicles and nothing else. There’s tons of people working on fixes while working on future content at the same time, so once fixes for current issues are in, we test, and create either a patch or a title update, depending on the fix. If we feel it’s good to go, we get it out the door as soon as possible.

Willams says that they will be updating the Known Issues post on Activision Support site here with the latest on what they’re looking into and the tracking of the fixes for the updates.

Here’s the known issues:

Modern Warfare devs make secret TTK change with major health boost

Modern Warfare players believe Infinity Ward have made a major TTK adjustment, adding health to players in Ground War.

Modern Warfare players have discovered that Infinity Ward have made a secret change to the game’s Ground War mode, giving players a major health boost.

Modern Warfare dropped all the way back in 2019, yet remains popular with fans even three years later. With the next Call of Duty title set to be Modern Warfare 2, it’s no surprise that people are jumping back onto Infinity Ward’s last offering.

Even though the developers are hard at work finishing up MW2, it seems that Infinity Ward isn’t finished with Modern Warfare just yet, and still drops updates on the game fairly regularly.

The game’s last update dropped alongside Warzone Season 3 Reloaded, but didn’t include extensive patch notes for players to read. After playing the game though, YouTuber and CoD expert JGOD has discovered a secret change that changes Ground War massively.

In a tweet posted on May 29, JGOD revealed that after playing Ground War, he believed that Infinity Ward had raised the base health in the mode.

To prove this, he used the RAM-7, explaining that at 100HP, it should kill in four shots. In Ground War though, it took six bullets. This suggests that the mode’s base health has been increased to 150HP.

JGOD wasn’t the only player who noticed this change, with many replying that they had felt something was different too. “I knew they did something with the recent update,” tweeted one, while TrapGodTO admitted he felt the “time-to-kill had went up” too.

A higher TTK means it is harder to kill opponents, as you need to hit more shots accurately to wipe them out. The reason for this change remains unknown, but that hasn’t stopped players from speculating.

Some believe this change is directly linked to Warzone, where Raven buffed HP in Rebirth Island with the Reloaded patch. Others think Infinity Ward are testing different base healths for Modern Warfare 2. If that is the case, it’s likely we will have to wait for a multiplayer beta for confirmation.

Which packs are needed for Modern Warfare Multiplayer? Full list

Modern Warfare is a huge game that players need a lot of storage for. Luckily, only certain Modern Warfare packs are needed for Multiplayer.

Modern Warfare Multiplayer data packs

Knowing what data packs you need to download to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Multiplayer can be quite confusing, so we put together a detailed list of what you need and how much space it takes up.


Call of Duty’s Multiplayer has been a fan favorite mode of the franchise pretty much since it was released, and although Modern Warfare isn’t the latest installment, players are still enjoying it.

With the Call of Duty games evolving every year, it’s only natural that the data needed is larger. Therefore, some players may be wondering what data packs they need solely for the Multiplayer mode.

What packs are needed for Modern Warfare Multiplayer?

In recent history, the developers have allowed players to pick and choose what data to download due to the huge amount of storage that the games take up.

This way, players who only play the Multiplayer can uninstall the data for the campaign and any other extra modes. This is great, as it prevents storage from being taken up modes you don’t play.

Luckily there isn’t much that players actually need to play Modern Warfare’s Multiplayer.

Here’s a list of all the Modern Warfare Multiplayer packs you need to have downloaded:

  • Base Game: 88.7 GB
  • Multiplayer pack: 6.0 GB
  • Multiplayer pack 2: 19.9 GB
  • Multiplayer and Special Ops Pack: 21.3 GB

In total, this comes to 135.9 GB big and will require a sizable amount of your console storage.

For those on Xbox One, you will need all three of the Modern Warfare Multiplayer packs mentioned above to run the Multiplayer mode.

For those on PC or PlayStation, you only need Data Pack 1 and the Multiplayer Pack 2 in order to run Modern Warfare’s Multiplayer.

So, for those who are either bored of Warzone like some popular streamers have been lately, you may want to head back over to the classic Multiplayer and give the new CX-9 SMG a try. With that being said, these are the data packs you’ll need to do so.

Although Vanguard Season 3 has only just begun, Call of Duty players are already looking forward to the next installment in the franchise. The Modern Warfare series is beloved by many players across the globe, thus the excitement for Modern Warfare 2 is high.

There are certainly a ton of rumors beginning to swirl but thanks to a private CoD event for some of the NFL’s top draft prospects, we received an official title for the game as well as first impressions from the players lucky enough to sneak a peek.

We’ve known for a while that the next Call of Duty title is set to be a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. Given the sequel association, most people began calling it Modern Warfare II. While this was in the right ballpark, the event finally confirmed that the title will be Modern Warfare 2.

In addition to title confirmation of the Infinity Ward developed game, several top prospects from the upcoming NFL draft took to social media to share thoughts and opinions on their first look at Modern Warfare 2.

The list of NFL prospects who got a glimpse of Modern Warfare 2 includes Ahmad Gardner, Aidan Hutchinson, and Bo Melton. Both Melton and Hutchinson posted pictures of themselves at the Las Vegas event.

Meanwhile, Gardner offered more details concerning the footage and claimed that “it was so realistic, it’s insane.” This lines up with a statement from an Activision briefing that claimed Modern Warfare 2 would be “the most advanced experience in franchise history.”

Only time will tell if this positive perception will hold up but CoD fans have a lot to be excited about.
