COD4 Not Yet Gold, Hit Detection to be improved

Speculation that COD4 has gone gold is apparently false despite the addition of COD4 to Fourzeotwo's Gamercard. According to Fourzerotwo's blog the team at Infinity Ward is testing the Single Player and using feedback from the ongoing Beta to fine tune the Multiplayer (including some improvements to Hit Detection problems caused by server lag).

I'm glad to hear they are working on Hit Detection, I don't know how many times I have seen my game register a Hit on my side but then when I'm watching the kill Cam I don't hit them at all.

kornbeaner3232d ago

it has to do a little with the lag. Cause the same thing has happened to me. You swear up and down that you knifed you oppoent only to be shown on killcam that you were way off.

No thats what I'm talking about. Missing with the Knife when I swear i didn't happens to me to. I'm talking about when you shoot someone and the X on your cross hair says that you hit him but then when you watch the kill cam that player doesn't take any hits.

Hit detection definitely needs to be fixed and Auto aim needs to be taken out of the game completely.

Yea hit detection kinda gets on my nerves. Love watching that killcam and seeing the guy I was shooting at never got shot, while I get blasted.

Spawn system needs to be fixed also. I don't know if they can do anything with it. I don't have any suggestions, but it's just ridiculous to kill a guy, then have him spawn practically with his gun pointing at you. Happens to me all the time. I'll kill a guy, then he'll spawn a second later behind me somewhere and waste me.

But other than that, this Beta has been one of the greatest online multiplayer experiences I've ever had. I love this game.

I would say this 'Beta' is the best multiplayer on the 360 after bomberman.
Once you play COD4 then go back to Gears, Gears feels a bit bland.

...they would allow you to select a game to join and not just assign you to one. I hate ending up in a game only to find my connection is crap. I also hate exiting that game to find another but ending back up in the same game!!!

i hate when i miss with the knife
i hate spawn point (sometimes)
i hate when my bullets don't register
i hate being put on the losing team of a game that already begun.

That is what the Beta is for I hope. I found COD4 to be quite fun and addictive, however, all the points above are true.

To add to that, I wish they would actually get rid of the x that appears when you hit someone, especially behind obstacles. If someone is hiding and you shoot through a wall or throw a grenade for example, an x appears and it gives away where they are.

And I always spawn in a location close to where I died and thus, know where the _ucker that killed me is. I should be spawning as far away from where I died as possible (if possible).

Other than that... Level Design is Beautiful and Interesting. Can't wait to play the full version.
