Infinity Ward has put out a new update for Modern Warfare for all platforms today. The update brings some tweaks to weapons, changes to playlists, and bug fixes.
The most significant part of the update is the change to the game’s playlists. Deathmatch Domination and Gunfight Custom have been added, and Capture the Flag has been added to the “Quick Play” filter. The Shoot the Ship playlist has been replaced with Shipment 24/7, and the Gun Fight map, Winter Docks, has been removed. All of these changes are now live.
Some changes have been brought to weapons as well, with the M4’s headshot damage being reduced, increasing the M13’s headshot damage, and altering the number of bolts needed by the game’s new Crossbow to take out support helicopters.
Finally, some minor bugs have been fixed, such as an ATV exploit in Ground War, spawns in Shipment, and missing character models for certain skins.
The full patch notes are available for further information:
