Modern Warfare January 31 Community Update

Published

on

Infinity Ward has released the latest community update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on their blog.

The community update recaps some of what has happened this week with the game, gives a small look at some things to come, and more.

Here’s the update from Infinity Ward:

This week we put a twist on a few playlists with Deathmatch Domination and Gunfight Custom! We’ve got more coming next week, so keep reading to get all the details!

First, let’s look at a few Customer Support conversations we’ve seen over the past few days…

Did you receive an error prompt while downloading last Wednesday’s update and have your combat record stats reset?

During last Wednesday’s update, some users were given an error prompt and for those who clicked “Yes”, their combat record stats were temporarily reset.

This also reset your custom loadouts, Operator customizations, Killstreaks, and Field Upgrade selections back to their default state.

Anyone who clicked “Yes” and had their combat record stats reset should now see their combat record displaying properly and as they were prior to initiating last Wednesday’s title update. This won’t restore your customizations, so you’ll need to set those up again to your liking.

If you were part of this group who had their stats reset and are not seeing them restored, please reach out to Activision Support, @ATVIAssist on Twitter!

Are you stuck in a download loop with “Spec Ops DLC” on PS4?

Are you missing your Season 0 emblem for completing Officer Challenges? As of 1/29/2020, these have been awarded to all users who qualified!

Here’s what’s coming next week to Modern Warfare…

We’re planning a few things for next week, like a some 2v2 Grind action maybe? OR….maybe a playlist for Shipment 24/7 AND a playlist for Shoot House 24/7? Hm…

We’ve also got some XP events planned, like 2XP, 2X Weapon XP, AND 2X Tiers, so keep an eye out for when these go live next week!

Want to meet some of the IW staff? Check out our latest developer diary with Level Designer Brian Baker!HERE!

Lastly, we want to thank you all for your support of the Outback Relief Pack. Today marks the end of our donation drive to provide relief to the devastating Australian bushfires. We look forward to sharing results next week, so again, thank you for your incredible support.

New CoD: Mobile leak reveals another Modern Warfare map is coming

A new leaked clip has revealed that the Shoot House map from Modern Warfare is getting its first remake in COD: Mobile.

A new map is coming to COD: Mobile

A new leak has revealed that the Shoot House map from Modern Warfare is being beta tested in a Chinese server, which means that we’ll see it arrive in Call of Duty: Mobile soon. Here’s what we know so far.

Call of Duty: Mobile is entering a brand new Season, which means that there’s a plethora of new content on the horizon. This includes some exciting new maps, and the new update will be bringing its fair share of those.

The game already has a lot of locations from other Call of Duty titles, and a new leak has emerged which suggests that another one from Modern Warfare will be added soon. This is referring to Shoot House, which was introduced back in November 2019.

Shoot House in Modern Warfare

COD: Mobile adds Shoot House map

This map was part of Modern Warfare’s first free updates in 2019, and it gained popularity due to its fast-paced gameplay. It’s fairly small in size, which means that you’ll encounter enemies around every corner and have plenty of flanking opportunities.

The map’s immense popularity among fans explains why it’s getting a remake so soon, and players have a chance to try it out in a Chinese CoD Mobile Beta test. Domination is available to play as a game mode, and the map’s design hasn’t changed much.

You’ll be better off sticking with SMGs and Shotguns when playing on this map due to the close-quarters nature of the combat. We strongly recommend you set up a class that’s ideal for mobility, and allows you to fire from the hip.

So far, this remake of Shoot House is only available for COD: Mobile in a Beta stage. That means that the developers are working with fans to fine-tune it before it’s actual release, so you can try it out, and leave feedback on areas to improve upon.

So far it seems to be working perfectly fine. No bugs or glitches have been discovered in the mobile version of Shoot House so unless that changes, we’ll most likely see it in a future season of CoD: Mobile.

Season 1 already has a new map, so we don’t expect to see Shoot House appear anytime in the latest update. However, if Activision announce any new developments about this, we’ll be sure to update you.

How to fix Call of Duty: Warzone Dev Error 6034

If ‘Dev Error 6034’ is preventing you from playing Warzone, follow this simple guide to drop back into Verdansk in no time.

Published

While Warzone Season 1 has seen a plethora of game-breaking exploits and bugs, one issue is preventing PC gamers from playing the battle royale altogether. Here’s how to fix the Dev Error 6034 issue.

Black Ops Cold War x Warzone Season 1 got off to a shaky start with the overpowered DMR 14, pay-to-win MAC-10 blueprint, as well as invisibility exploits and the return of stim glitches. These problems have now been fixed, but further issues have plagued CoD fans.

Xbox players saw the return of the ‘Blackout Trial Has Ended‘ screen, which Charlie Intel has covered a fix for, but ‘Dev Error 6034’ prevents PC players from playing Warzone and Modern Warfare.

The ‘Dev Error 6034’ bug first appeared in Modern Warfare shortly after launch, and because Warzone is connected to MW, battle royale players have encountered it too. If this frustrating error is preventing you from dropping into Verdansk, here’s how to fix it.

How to fix Dev Error 6034

It’s believed that Dev Error 6034 happens when Modern Warfare files become corrupted or unreadable. It sounds scary, but the fix is really quite simple.

CoD Warzone gameplay

A clean reinstall of the game is known to fix the issue, but there’s a much quicker solution. What you have to do is locate specific files in the Modern Warfare folder, delete them, then run a Scan and Repair which will replace the files with the correct versions.

The problem with PC gaming is solving errors like this can be daunting; nobody wants to go into the guts of their game and mess with files. Don’t worry, to make this as stress-free as possible, follow our simple walkthrough below.

  1. Open the Modern Warfare or Warzone installation folder
  2. Locate and delete the following files:
  • .patch.result
  • .product
  • vivoxsdk_x64.dll
  • Launcher.db
  • Modern Warfare Launcher.exe

After these files have been deleted, open Battle.net and run Scan and Repair on Modern Warfare/Warzone. It can be found through the ‘Options’ dropdown when the game is selected. These deleted files will now be replaced with working ones, and you can play Warzone again.

To prevent this problem from returning, make sure that Warzone downloads are uninterrupted. Leave your PC on until the download is complete, and avoid pausing and resuming the download when possible.

Call of Duty player uses musical instruments as a controller

Call of Duty player, DeanoBeano, plays the game with various musical instruments. We had the opportunity to have a brief Q&A with him.

Published

A Call of Duty player has discovered how to use musical instruments as a controller and has even killed enemy players with an assortment of different instruments.

Call of Duty is a game traditionally played with a mouse and keyboard or controller, but not for player DeanoBeano. Deano instead opts to play his Call of Duty games with musical instruments, such as drums, a recorder, and even bongos.

He posts these hilarious highlights to his Reddit and Twitter pages, going viral each time he posts his impressive clips.

You can see one of his most popular clips below, where he manages to snipe a player in Modern Warfare, while using the drums.

DeanoBeano is clearly a one of a kind player, so we managed to get in contact with him and sit him down for a Q&A, where he details how he’s able to play the game with instruments, how he started, and more.

Q: How do you manage to get instruments to work as remotes?

Deano: I use instruments that I plug in to convert midi signals to keyboard commands, and acoustic instruments I control using pitch to midi, then midi to keyboard commands. The bongos were actually a controller from the GameCube games Donkey Konga and Donkey Kong Bongo Bash. (referring to the above clip)

CI: Can you explain Midi to our readers?

Deano: Midi is a signal that electric instruments send to computers and other instruments and devices that control sound to connect with each other.

Q: What originally gave you the idea to play Call of Duty with instruments?

Deano: I started drumming to gaming montages live on twitch about a year ago, so there was always an ongoing joke that I actually hit the clips with my drums.

Eventually, in August I figured out how to hook up my drums as a controller and after I started doing that, I figured it would be fun to try other instruments and odd controllers too.

Q: What are your future plans? Any new instruments you want to try?

Deano: My plan is to keep making Cold War multiplayer as fun as I can. Playing with a normal controller (especially solo) can be really tiring because of SBMM. I’m always looking at finding new ways to play the game, and I plan on bringing this to other games too. I’ll be using some new instruments and controllers soon.

Q: What’s your favorite instrument to play in games?

Deano: The recorder is my favorite instrument to play with at the moment. It makes the game pretty challenging but every kill and clip I get with it feels so rewarding.

Q: Do you actually play any musical instruments?

Deano: I do! I started with piano when I was a kid and later on picked up drums and got a Bachelor’s degree in music on drums. I play a little bit of trumpet (and recorder I guess haha) but not much.

That’s the end of our interview with Deano. To see more of his content, you can follow him on Twitter and watch his Twitch streams, where he appears to be most active. He also occasionally posts highlights of his streams to his YouTube channel.
