It was announced by Robert Bowling (Creative Strategist at Infinity Ward on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3) that a hotfix has been released for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC players. The fixes that have been included are as follows:
- Improved Lag Compensation
- Fixes to the Theater
- Nerfed the Striker shotgun
- Buffed all other shotguns
- Decreased YouTube video upload times
Lag Compensation has been a problem for many users in Modern Warfare 3 as it has been hindering their ability to play since they are effectively being punished for having a fast connection. The Lag Compensation which was new to the COD series in MW3 tries to make every player more even, which would be great if it worked correctly. Until now it’s been having a few problems, even though it’s been said to be fixed in previous updates.
