MW3 Hotfix released: Lag compensation and weapon adjustments.

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.



Damage Proficiency glitch fixed via hotfix today

A hotfix was released today to fix a glitch which allowed players to increase the damage of their weapons via a proficiency. The glitch is similar to the Stopping Power perk in Call of Duty: 4. Either way it is not allowed in Modern Warfare 3 as it makes players overpowered and the game unfair.

Users had been complaining about this problem for a while so we are glad it has finally been fixed.

The update has been applied via a hotfix so it will install and fix the problem all behind the scenes without you knowing.

The hotfix was revealed in a tweet from Robert Bowling: “Released a hotfix for Modern Warfare 3 which prevents users from exploiting the ‘Damage Proficiency’ glitch. Have fun, play fair!”
