“It isn’t just the hackers who are complaining…”
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is probably one of the most popular games to have ever entered the industry. The game, although almost two years old, is still played by many gamers on Xbox Live and PSN. Recently, the game encountered a major exploit leading to a famous hack known as “The UFO hack”. Infinity Ward quickly jumped on this one and a patch was released around a week after the exploit was discovered.
Now, Infinity Ward have once again released a new update on their game, this time preventing people from using hacks and modded controllers to fire their weapons at an incredibly fast speed. Good news for gamers, bad news for hackers. But why are people angry, you may ask? Here’s why.
It’s the way they’ve fixed this issue that’s angered gamers. All weapons now have a 0.5 second timer on them, thus all players will now shoot at the same speed, but wait, what about the players who are quick with the triggers? They too are now suffering from the update. People with the skill to click their triggers faster than 0.5 seconds will now be shooting like a “newbie”.
I myself was quick when it came to clicking on my trigger, but now the game feels too limited for me. This patch has led quite a few gamers to believe that Infinity Ward have done this intentionally to stop gamers from playing Modern Warfare so that players addicted to Modern Warfare will be more “pumped up” for the release of Modern Warfare 2, who knows.
