Infinity Ward released a new patch for the Xbox 360 version of Modern Warfare 3 last night.
The patch is mandatory, and will set you back 9MB of HDD space.. This is the emergency title update we reported on recently, more patches will follow in the upcoming weeks to address matchmaking and lag compensation.
- Fix for the Out of Memory and Spec Ops issues related to latest Elite content
- Fix to CMR [Custom Match Rule] exploit, also known as Vault Mods – “It was a hack where ppl were making custom game rules and bringing them into public matches,” explained Infinity Ward’s Mark Rubin.
It seems that the patch didn’t address the “de-rank” problem for Spec Ops players. However, Rubin stated on Twitter, “I’ll be giving out instructions on how to get rank back. Hang in there.”
We will add the instructions to this piece when they become available.
Update 1: Mark Rubin has just published the following, basically the instructions are still on the way, but here’s the full statement. “With the patch for Xbox last night we fixed the bug that would reset your Spec Ops stats. However the steps to restore your stats is still coming. Should be very soon though. It should be pretty simple and straight forward and will basically just involve you going to a site and entering your gamertag and the level you were before getting reset. I will post more details as soon as I have them.”
Update 2: You can contact Activision about restoring your Spec Ops rank through here.
