Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has a fair number of bugs and glitches, but a newly-spotted issue with the game has some players raising their eyebrows and speculating on what it could mean.
As shared to Reddit, a new game bug has reportedly been discovered, and it appears to show a headshot-only mode for the Activision game.
Spotted by GamingINTEL, a Redditor by the name of Sunk_Punk shared the following clip, which appears to show headshot-only mode being active during a public match. The user notes that, although headshot-only can be activated in the settings for private and local matches, this wasn’t the case in the video. Check it out below.
Is IW trolling or someone managed to change settings on a public match, this was normal HC tdm, but somehow it was only headshots… from r/modernwarfare
As you can see, it appears as though the player is unable to land a shot at the bodies of their enemies, with only headshots appearing to do any damage. While this isn’t confirmation of a headshot-only mode coming to the game, it definitely looks a little suspicious – especially considering how many times future game modes have been revealed by bugs.
One user speculated: “Seems it’s going to be added to a public playlist soon.”
It’s not clear how many players have experience this issue.
Headshot-only mode has been utilised in a number of Call of Duty titles in the past, including Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2. We’ve not seen anything about the mode reaching the public match arena in the roadmap of content for Season Four, but hey, anything is possible.
Do you think the above clip is a glitch, or is Infinity Ward perhaps planning on making headshot-only a MW public match mode in the future?
