UPDATE: Reports are coming in that the “no recoil glitch” is no longer possible. Let’s hope it is the last we’ll see of it.
Robert Bowling and Guy Beahm give us a look into what sort of updates the teams behind Modern Warfare 3 have in the works.
Some PS3 players have been reporting issues of receding in rank after being disconnected from a game. One in particular even experienced dropping in prestige rank. This did not happen instantaneously but rather the next day. Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward’s Community Manager explained that “if you common error out or lose connection, you stop writing stats to the server.” Currently, “there is no way to get what you lost back, but if you notice an error while playing ever, reboot your PS3 before playing more.” Fortunately, he did mention that “this will be prevented after the next update.”
FOV (field of view) for the PC version of Modern Warfare 3 may be looking at some tweaks in the near future. Guy Beahm, Community Manager at Sledgehammer Games, has reported that the team is receiving “quite a few remarks regarding the FOV on PC.” He continued to mention that he will “have a meeting with the engineer team” to hopefully sort it out. For those unaware of the concerns, the FOV is currently the same on PCs as it it on consoles. Since most PC gamers sit closer to their monitor, it calls for a slightly larger FOV than what the console players are experiencing. PC gamers, keep an eye out for more updates.
Bowling also mentioned that those using a LAN setup to play MW3 might be seeing some more support. He stated to one fan, “I’ll see what I can do about getting LAN priority bumped up internally. Including Timer [pre-round countdown timer] and All Unlock option.”
These are a few of the things that we can expect in future Modern Warfare 3 updates, on top of fixes for the “recoil glitch” that the MW3 teams are currently looking into, as well as some rebalancing of the FMG’s, especially when used Akimbo.
