They fix the Javelin glitch and introduce two great new ones: infinite ammo on everything (no cooldown on the C-130’s guns, for instance) and joining random private matches when searching for games. Awesome. I’ve had a lot of trouble the past couple of days joining the same game with my party, which is amazingly annoying. These problems seem to effect the Xbox 360, only. Apparently Infinity Ward is aware of the problem, though. From their Twitter:
Preparing an in depth #MW2 Status Report for players to stay aware of what we’re addressing & how it’s progressing. Lots of updates in works
It was funny at first. Then it got amazingly annoying. Particularly when you faced groups of people with clan tags like “JAV” all running around doing it. Now, finally, it’s gone forever. For those who enjoy being cheap, fear not, Akimbo Model 1887s remain insanely overpowered.
Fun fact: I worked at the company that makes the Javelin. So, in a small way, I made this glitch a reality.
Shooting people is cool, yes, but capturing flags using riot shields is even awesomer. So is “host migration”, something every single game should have. In most games, if the host leaves, the game ends for everyone, which happens constantly. That’s been fixed in Modern Warfare 2, with the game automatically selecting a new host very quickly. Oh, and you can throw knives at people’s heads.
Tired of just getting art books with your collector’s edition games? Well, it seems Infinity Ward has come to the rescue, giving players night vision goggles with every “Prestige Edition” copy of the game. And it will only set you back about $149 which actually, kind of doesn’t seem that bad for the goggles and a game. AND you get a “Soap” MacTavish head to put the goggles on when you’re not using them. I wonder what Liz would do if she woke up next to “Soap” MacTavish.
