Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is filled to the brim with deadly weapons. Aside from your bog-standard knives, AK-47s and grenades, there’s also nukes to watch out for, but the most lethal weapon in the game might be the humble office chair.
Players have recently discovered that Modern Warfare contains a pretty strange glitch that sees players get eliminated when they get too close to your typical old office swivel chair, which is actually pretty scary considering I’m sitting on one of those right now (dun dun dunnn!)
The news comes from the Modern Warfare subreddit, where a user shared a clip of their misfortune in the St. Petrograd map. The original video (which you can watch here) shows the player instantly die when on the chair, and the glitch has since been replicated across all of social media.
For those of you looking to test the lethal chairs for yourself, note that this doesn’t seem to be a bug that works every time so you’ll have to be really lucky (or unlucky, depending on how you look at it) to strike out here.
Developers at Infinity Ward have yet to comment on the issue, but it’s a safe bet to say this is one glitch that won’t be around forever.
In other Call of Duty news, the game recently got itself yet another update. As of 31st December, Grind is now live (replacing Drop Zone), and Shoot the Ship has been replaced with Shoot House 24/7. We also said sayonara to Snowfight.
We’re just a month into the game’s Season One, and Modern Warfare has never looked bigger or better than it does right now. Let’s hope Infinity Ward can keep up the great work (and stay away from those dastardly office chairs).
