Infinity ward has released their latest Call of Duty Modern Warfare patch bringing new weapons, additional loadout slots and a myriad of bug fixes across all aspects of the game. This patch however does come with a potential new issue of its own, Infinity Ward warns!
The Patch is now live on PS4 ,Xbox One and PC, and brings with it a brand new crossbow. The crossbow can be unlocked by simply equipping a reflex sight to a marksman rifle and earning 5 kills in 25 games! Simple enough. If unlocking this weapon leaves you worried you don't have enough loadouts to house your brand new crossbow then fear not, as the patch also includes 5 additional loadout slots available to customise however you see fit! Also in this patch are the inclusion of some previously removed favorites such as, Shoot the ship, Aniyah Place and Capture the flag.
With this path though Infinity Ward warn there may be a potential issue forcing people to force close their application. see the tweet below:
