Modern Warfare Camera Angles Need Serious Fixing
Since its launch, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been a bit divisive, with some fans loving the slower, more tactical gameplay, and others wishing for a return to form. And while the critical response has been fairly positive, that doesn’t mean that the game is without issues. In fact, it currently has a major glitch with some of the camera angles in the game.
The issue in question has to do with players trying to peek around corners to spot enemies. While this would normally provide an advantage in FPS games, that isn’t the case in Modern Warfare. Far from it, in fact. In Modern Warfare, hugging the wall and peeking around may actually conceal enemies to some degree, and allow them to see about 40% of a player’s body – giving them a clear advantage.
Needless to say, that’s a pretty major issue that needs to be fixed. Infinity Ward has been updating Modern Warfare, recently adding some new maps and fixes, but this should definitely be considered a top priority. It’s a pretty massive advantage to have, and one that many may not know their enemies are privy to. Infinity Ward will undoubtedly patch the issue, it seems like something technical that just slipped the radar, but for now fans can avoid it by simply not hugging walls.
It’s not the first major issue that Modern Warfare has had since launch. Videos of the 725 being used as a sniper rifle began to pop up a little bit after launch, but Infinity Ward finally took steps to nerf the shotgun. It’s an evolving game, and other overpowered weapons are bound to pop up eventually, but only time will tell what those are and how they emerge.
There’s still plenty to look forward to with Modern Warfare in the future, issues aside. There are plans to add new maps, game modes, and weapons into the game, so fans should have lots to look forward to in the future. It’ll be interesting to see how Infinity Ward balances adding new content and fixing issues, but hopefully, the wall glitch will be patched sooner rather than later.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available now for PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
