Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward’s community man, better known by his online name Fourtwozero, Tweeted minutes ago, announcing the release of a patch for Xbox 360 and PS3 versons of Modern Warfare 2, eradicating the painful care package glitch and improving the game slightly.
From the mouth of Bowling:
– 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.
– Fixes to prevent various XP hacks (including the prevention of negative XP)
When a game is as popular as Modern Warfare 2, there will always be those who look to exploit it, by I’m glad Infinity Ward is taking such a determined interest in keeping the battlefields fair and even.
