As revealed by FourZeroTwo on twitter we have been told that all of the Akimbo Machine Pistols will be getting a nerf to finally put a stop to their overpowered nature.
This includes the infamous Akimbo FMG9′s which have been problematic for those up against them since the release of Modern Warfare 3.
Also in the update, for you Hardcore gameplay fans out there, two new Hardcore gametypes are being added: Hardcore Headquarters and Hardcore Free For All. These gameplay types have been requested since the start of the game and it is great to finally see them being added.
The patch should come to all users via a Hotfix around 2AM.
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.
