Modern Warfare 2 developer Infinity Ward has patched up its game, this time fixing a ‘super speed’ glitch plaguing the online battlegrounds.

Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling has stated, via Twitter, that a fix for the Xbox 360 version is on the way, soon to eradicate the issue.

The glitch, as it sounds, exploits the speed of a player in a match, allowing him or her to zip around the environment, knifing enemies at will and acting as a target too quick to hit.

Glad to see it’s gone, especially as the game’s first DLC, the “Stimulus Package” hits Xbox Live a week from today. It bears a $15 price tag, an unprecedented figure, and will be interesting to see how many boycott it.

    Glad to see that IW is making some fixes on those stupid viral mods on a game that needs to be perfect for anybody too respect it. This game needed a little more time and a little more thought. Maybe the ridiculously priced Stimulus pack will boost the game and our confidence and our thoughts that this is actually a worthy predecessor of the famous Call of Duty 4.

    I HATE the speed glitch and all online cheats in MW2 for that matter. I consider myself a legit player…the super speed thing makes the game unplayable. I’d say I’ve run into 2 dozen matches like this in the last few days…Including today “post patch”. I see no difference. I wish there were separate lobbies for real players and loser cheaters.

      HI, I’M GEORGE ZIMMER – FOUNDER AND CEO OF THE MEN’S WEARHOUSE. LAST NIGHT I UNSHEATHED MY MUNGO MAN SPOUT FROM MY JEANS AND FLOPPED IT DOWN IN FRONT OF YOUR MOTHER – HER SENILE NEIGHBOR TAPPED AT HER WALL BECAUSE OF THE CLAMOR. SHE WAS BARELY ABLE TO NIBBLE AT MY PLUMP, PRODIGIOUS MEMBER BEFORE I GRABBED IT LIKE A LASSO AND SMACKED HER ACROSS THE FACE SO HARD SHE FLEW, SPINNING, ONTO THE BED BENT OVER – AWAITING THE ADMISSION OF MY THROBBING ACREAGE OF FLESH. SHE COULD ONLY TAKE 30 SECONDS OF HALF MY SCROTAL CAMEL BEFORE SHE FAINTED. I FINISHED UP AND BESTOWED A STUNNING LIKENESS OF THE POPE ON HER BACK IN BABY SPACKLE. I USED HER TOOTH BRUSH AS TOILET PAPER AND LEFT A QUARTER ON HER ASS. SHE CALLED ME FOUR TIMES TODAY.
      I GUARANTEE IT.

    I THINK PERSONALLY IF YOU’RE GOING TO PATCH THE GLITCH AT LEAST MAKE ANOTHER GAME LINK FOR EXAMPLE: FREE FOR ALL TURBO…. BC LIKE JASON HAS SAID AT THE BOTTOM THAT GLITCH WAS WITHOUT A DOUBT THE BEST GLITCH SOMEONE HAS MADE.. I THINK A LOT OF FOLKS ARE KIND OF GETTING TIRED OF THE SAME OL SAME OL & THAT GLITCH BROUGHT BACK THE INTEREST OF MY FRIENDS, MYSELF & APPARENTLY A LOT MORE MW2 LOVERS.. DONT TAKE THIS GLITCH AWAY AT LEAST MAKE IT RANDOM IN SOME WAY.. NOT ONCE HAVE I HEARD OF ONLY ONE PERSON HAVING THE GLITCH EXCEPT ONCE & THAT WAS WORD OF MOUTH THROUGH THE INTERNET.. EVERY ROOM I’VE SEEN THE ENTIRE ROOM HAS THE GLITCH WORKING.. IF I.W. FIXES THIS PATCH IM GOING TO BE A HIGHLY UPSET CUSTOMER.. & THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT.. MAKE BOTH PARTIES HAPPY.. KEEP THE ONES WHO WANT TO KEEP IT ORIGINAL HAPPY & MAKE THE ONES WHO NEED EXCITEMENT ANOTHER ROOM GENRE PLEASE

    first of you dumb ass bitches cant spell to save your life!!! i mean what the fuck did you learn in school? as far as the glitch, it is cheating! no other way to look at it. if your running around the map so fast nobody can shoot you then how do you get better at the game. if your a good gamer you dont need the fucking glitch. you all are loosers, thats the bottom line.
