Modern Warfare 3 Patch/Update 1.05


The highly anticipated 1.05 update is finally here! It’s been the update we’ve been waiting for since day one, offering some massive fixes in Modern Warfare 3 to make it a fully functional game now. The PlayStation 3 patch is 21 MB big again like previous patches.

Official word of what specifically has been fixed is still being waited on but according to multiple Call of Duty officials on twitter we know this patch was released to address all connection / network related problems and all the rank / stat problems that users have been facing since the game was first released.

We have noticed first hand though that things seem much smoother than they used to be, we played a few games without any kind of lag at all which was great! It makes the game so much better and fun to play when its smooth. Only time will tell whether the stats fix we’ve been promised will turn out to be true! I myself will continue to be cautious but hopefully it should all be good!

The patch was promised for Thanksgiving (24th November) which is today so we can assume that it is the one that we’ve been hearing word of. We were also told via Twitter that change log’s would be posted for all Modern Warfare 3 patches to date soon so it shouldn’t be long before we get official word on what has been fixed.

If you are still having problems after the update then there are some fixes here you should try in order to optimize your connection as well as possible.

Stay tuned for more information! Until that time, have a read of our article on which classic Call of Duty maps you’d like to see make a re-appearance in a future map pack.

Update: On the 5th of December an official change log was released, stating that the 1.03 update fixed the following: ” Further improvements for hitching and addressing lag in gameplay.”

    I don’t know why, but I can’t download this update!! When I click on “ok” button, my playstation says to wait, and then it turns off!

    • Richard Stone

  • Captain007

    Game updated and still getting shot before I can even lift my gun. Game went ok for a bit after update 2 but the latest ones seem to have made it take 2 steps back. Really is getting to be a joke now struggling to get more than 10 kills per game unless I just camp n hide n kd is dropping like a lead balloon along with win/loss due to rage quits when I end up host which only makes the situation worse

    • ic3

      ur just not good a FPS lol i drop 25-40 kills every game how can u blame the game for not being quick at aiming ? battlefield would be better for you slow paced gaming………

      • ic3isafag

        ic3 your a tool, and a troll for even posting some bullshit like that, if the game didn’t have connection issues there wouldn’t be thread after thread of links listed by doing a trivial google search…probably not even old enough to buy the dammn game and the reason u get any kills is because you have a hamster running in a wheel for your trailor park internet connection and the lag compensation is in your favor

        • YouGoSister

          Daaaaaaaaamn.. that was some ownage lol
          True story though.. there’s always one troll who’s probably sittin there camping telling people they can’t play FPS

  • killer

    @captain007 it could be the game causing u troubles i can see that. there is also another thing. it could be ur router for internet. how long have you had the router? and just try and restart ur router

  • Justin Pizon

    Is anyone getting a HTTP Status 403? I can not down load the patch. I am assuming it has to do with a full server of people downloading the patch but it’s aggravating!

  • Angelos Ballao

    Does this means the patched fixed the matchmaking from Locale to Open? I hate joining the same players over and over and over and over.

  • lb

    What about the mics? I have new turtle beach mic and when I got to play mw3 it doesn’t work well, it cuts out but when I use voice chat, BO, etc it work fine, just not with MW3.

    • turtle

      I agree completely. My turtle beach headset sounded amazing with COD BO, but sound like absolute shit with MW3. it’s hard to communicat with friends when their mic’s go in and out. These are the same friends I played with on BO and we all have turtle beach headsets. While the game is fun to play, I am highly disapointed with the sound quality overall… and why the hell is there no hardcore capture the flag?!

  • Steve

    Will they ever change the invite status to join other players/friends? It suc having to send an invite just to join ur friends playing.
