'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare' update 1.08 has released with fixes for Piccadilly and the 725 shotgun. Read the full patch notes below. 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare' is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Infinity Ward/Activision

GENERAL FIXES:

  • More backend fixes to prevent crashes and improve stability across all modes and all platforms

Riot Shield:

  • Fix for a bug where a player using the Riot Shield would not take explosive damage during certain situations
  • Fixed an issue where the Riot Shield would stow on the players back when using Stim. (Tactical)

Footsteps

  • Adjusted to always play walk footstep sounds when in ADS and crouch independent of speed
  • Increased the speed in which you can remain using the walk footstep sounds by slightly pressing on the movement stick

Challenges

  • General fix for the UI and Challenge state getting out of sync. We'll continue to monitor and make additional fixes as needed in future updates
  • Fix for a challenge related error that could occur; DEV ERROR 5476
  • Fix for Mission Challenge description, "Get Kills with a Burst Weapons" being too vague.

Piccadilly:

  • Spawn tuning while playing TDM and Domination
  • Domination flag adjustments; B Flag is now near the busses instead of the center fountain

Weapons:

  • ARs: Minor hip spread adjustment
  • 725: Reduce range
  • M4: increase hip spread, decrease damage to the head
  • FAL: Reduced recoil, increased ADS speed
  • EB-14: Increase ADS speed
  • Miscellaneous ammo reserve adjustments upon spawning to be in-line with other weapons of their class

Special Operations:

  • Fix for a bug where a player using the Overkill perk with an SMG as their secondary would sometimes spawn without a primary weapon when joining a match in progress

While none of these fixes are particularly earth-shattering in terms of their contribution to gameplay, they do tackle some of the biggest issues reported by Modern Warfare enthusiasts over the past few days. Piccadilly in particular has proven to be a site of controversy, as its predictable spawn points have given rise to rampant camping in certain modes. In a similar fashion, the 725 shotgun has remained so powerful for its own good that it had become a crutch for inexperienced players to easily exploit. The updates found in version 1.08 are super critical ones, so we're glad Infinity Ward implemented them quickly.

Today's small bug fix arrives just days after Infinity Ward released update version 1.07. In addition to offering similar balance tweaks to guns like the 725, that large download also introduced Krovnik Farmland and Shoot House maps to the game as well. Unfortunately today's update doesn't offer any such features, but fans will appreciate its contents nonetheless.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
