Modern Warfare update 1.08 patch notes:
More backend fixes to prevent crashes and improve stability across all modes and all platforms
Fix for a bug where a player using the Riot Shield would not take explosive damage during certain situations
Fixed an issue where the Riot Shield would stow on the players back when using Stim. (Tactical)
Adjusted to always play walk footstep sounds when in ADS and crouch independent of speed
Increased the speed in which you can remain using the walk footstep sounds by slightly pressing on the movement stick
General fix for the UI and Challenge state getting out of sync. We’ll continue to monitor and make additional fixes as needed in future updates
Fix for a challenge related error that could occur; DEV ERROR 5476
Fix for Mission Challenge description, “Get Kills with a Burst Weapons” being too vague.
Spawn tuning while playing TDM and Domination
Domination flag adjustments; B Flag is now near the busses instead of the center fountain
ARs: Minor hip spread adjustment
725: Reduce range
M4: increase hip spread, decrease damage to the head
FAL: Reduced recoil, increased ADS speed
EB-14: Increase ADS speed
Miscellaneous ammo reserve adjustments upon spawning to be in-line with other weapons of their class
Fix for a bug where a player using the Overkill perk with an SMG as their secondary would sometimes spawn without a primary weapon when joining a match in progress
In a separate post, Co-Design Director of Multiplayer Joe Cecot explained the footsteps tuning the studio did and how it was different from before.
We have different sounds for crouch walk, walk, jog, sprint, etc
Before this patch ADS used walk and crouch used crouch.
If the player moved faster than a certain speed the ADS walk could change to a jog sound. The same was true for crouch where moving fast in crouch with say an SMG and some light weight attachments could push you into walk sounds from crouch sounds
With this patch the Crouch will always play crouch sounds (creep sounds) and ADS will also play creep sounds. In this way it’s consistent for the user. Fictionally the player is stealthily moving around in these two states.
All in all players should be able to creep around more quietly with crouch and ADS movement.
Are you happy with this patch? What other changes should Infinity Ward do ASAP? Let us know down in the comments.
