News Flash: Modern Warfare 2 Patched

Im bringing sexy back...yeah

Just wishing to share the good news to all fellow readers, that as of now a game update is available on Modern Warfare 2 which will patch the much loathed Care Package Exploit. Once you insert your disc or play from HDD a celebratory update screen appears - please make sure you all accept.

Many have claimed this is the worst gaming exploit of all time, whilst Robert Bowling the IW Community guy even tweeted: “Ugh. This care package exploit is becoming the bane of my existence, …”

The new patch fixes the following exploits:

  • Care Package, Emergency Airdrop, and Sentry Gun marker grenades sprint speed normalized.
  • Fix for “infinite care package” exploit.
  • Sentry Guns: Improved placement detection, preventing cases of Sentry Guns inside geometry.
  • Model 1887: Bling using Akimbo and FMJ combination now has same range and damage as non-Bling Model 1887s.
  • Improved player collision removing cases of getting into geometry and ‘elevators’.
  • Disables the negative XP hack from modded lobbies which is stripping people of prestige & points.

Why not continue the Modern Warfare 2 discussion in our easy to join Forums.

Happy Gaming!

Is there a list of what all was fixed? I kind of doubt it was just the care package glitch.

Yes updated post since I was just rushing it out at first to get it up here in all the excitement. Some people haven’t got it yet so its still doing the rounds - and seems people who have it cant play with friends who havent.

I still don’t understand the reasoning behind the 1887 nerf, AGAIN. Ok, hear me out, not hardly anyone still used these, and honestly, I could still usually take anyone one-on-one if they had them and I didn’t. Plus, to use them you had to give up your blue perk to bling to make them usable, meaning no marathon or anything. People are such whiners, there are so many other weapons they need to fix if they think the models are bad. Not to mention we’re shooting for the wrong target here, they should be finding ways to stop all this controller modding, with a mod and a FAL or the Revolver it puts anything these models could EVER do to shame.

The PS3 & PC Patch for the Care Package was pretty much useless hours after it went out. I think the 360 patch took so long because it got pulled back by IW to address the Care Packages again and add further fixes. If this IS the same patch the PS3 had end of Jan with no extra fixes, then do expect the glitch all over again because it was worked out all you had to do was climb something holding the care package, throw a special grenade, then throw the care package. I am hoping - really really HOPING that IW were switched on enough to fix that too when they pulled this patch back January!

Fair enough. The care package glitch, that was a clearly glitch, but i am really pissed at IW for messing around with the model 1887’s again.

You see here’s the thing. I happen to have a job which need’s going to so that I can pay my bill’s and one of these bill’s is my xbox live subscription, so I don’t have time to play 24/7 like most of the under 18 year olds who should not really own the game in the first place is it has an 18 cert.

For quite a while I got killed a quite few times by people adorning akimbo model 1887’s, but i did not bitch and whine on twitter about it, I just picked them up off the ground when I could and tried them out and looked forward to them being available when I reached level 67.

Now I have got to 67 and yes it’s taken me a while but as said earlier I do have a life which consists of me spending 10 hours a day outside working.

Now because of people whining, akimbo model 1887’s have been ruined and I don’t get to have my fun after earning my place at 67.

For me this just tops the lot with modern failware 2. I’m going back to call of duty 4 and going to trade in my copy of MW2.

Stop whining and go back to your cod4 loser. See ya.

yes, and someone should flush you down the toilet you turd. See ya.

I’d say missing out on your opportunity to be like everyone else, is a good enough excuse to rant for a bit! Cos if you can’t beat em - join em, then he gets screwed…

I do think you have a valid point though, but a bit of advice is that everyone seems to focus too much on kills as a means for ranking up - it’s the wrong way about it. Try to do all the Famas Weapons Challenges, then Move on to the SCAR, then the M16A4 by that time. Doing all these three weapons challenges combined with Kills will earn 1 full Prestige if you stick to Domination.

You’re complaining that you didn’t get to play with glitched, unbalanced weapons? I’m surprised you’re not complaining that you didn’t get to use the care package glitch because you didn’t hear about it until now.

There are more than enough incentives for getting to 70. Look forward to those, and stop complaining about not getting to use a bitch weapon.

Jason you are right on about the weapons. Another thing I see people doing a lot is sitting at level 70 for a really long time before they prestige. Don’t do that. You get new Prestige challenges after you Prestige the first time. If you just sit at level 70 with out Prestiging none of your kills are counting for those challenges. I need 160 more headshots to have my scar Prestige challenges fully maxed out. Can’t wait to see my new title!!!

Yeah you get tons of XP with weapons challenges. Also I get abuse so much because people in Domination say ahahaha look at you 10 kills, despite being top team player with over 2500 on the score board. Its Domination, its about points its not Team Deathmatch!! - people can be so stupid in this game…

Oh, and one more thing to you dip shit kids who play this game QUIT THROWING SMOKE GRENADES!!!

smoke grenades are incredibly useful when playing domination. throw them at the flag and it will buy you a couple seconds, which is often all that’s needed to get the cap.

The patch didn’t work. I downloaded it then started playing. The first match I saw people on my own team glitching.

I’m seriously thinking about giving this game up. The pople glitching are ruining it for everyone.

So is this game back to normal?!

I do consider it completely back to normal. There are as always in some games killstreak boosters though who do that to call in care packages, gain nukes - but its not the care package glitch and the game FEELS good again…
