Modern Warfare 3: New shotgun jump glitch could be a game-breaker

Product-Reviews writes: This new glitch has been found in the multiplayer version of the game and a video we have to show you lets you see how a group of MW3 players can climb to the top of buildings, seemingly floating in the air due to something known as ‘shotgun boosting’ which is apparently the new thing for gamers to exploit in multiplayer.

Rather then fill your pockets Infinity Ward, fix this shit already ..this same thing happened in MW2 as well didn't it? Not good enough.

Heartnet2412d ago

Hardly game breaking.. looks like takes a while to do it lol and with how small and crowded the maps in CoD your not going to get very far.. wasted effort xD

But yeh still needs a fix

JokesOnYou2412d ago (Edited 2412d ago )

Heres an idea, just shoot them.

Ive been playing the game obcessively since launch, I havent encountered any just seems like many of you are so desperate to find reasons to hate on MW3, lol theres another article of shoddy journalism related to clan tag hacks, the BF3 fanboys are so eager to hate they comment as if the game is broken and full of hackers without any knowledge of the facts, lol its not even a hack. Also MW3 while staying true to the COD formula feels different than the other COD games, especially BOps, different weapons, weapon upgrades, new perks, new support killstreaks, new modes, new environments,new customization and of course new maps & a very solid campaign, honestly other than a new engine I dont know what the haters want them to change, fact is its still COD, and even on a old engine its still more fun than BF3.

GroundsKeeperJimbo2412d ago

@JokesOnYou Seem a bit defensive there :]

Just wanted to point out that you're the first one to even bring up BF3.

We get it, apples and oranges pick one and defend it till you die.

"different weapons, weapon upgrades, new perks, new support killstreaks, new modes, new environments,new customization and of course new maps"

ok so. For upgrades, perks, killstreaks, "customization" and modes all they need are icons & some LUA scripting (or whatever scripting system they have implemented but it hardly matters).

MP maps require a lot of time spent modelling environments, sure. But 99% of the game's textures are ripped from MW2 and MW1 and a lot of the static props are too. So that cuts out about a third of the work required to make the environments for the game (the rest being unique geometry, testing balance etc... though they probably don't test anything other than the bare minimum)

Essentially, they just made enough changes for people like JokesOnYou to think that it's actually a different game :/

Most of the "content" is _extremely_ simple from a technical or workload standpoint.

It's just a patch that you have to pay for and you have to pay again if you want to play some of the good older maps on it :/ Oh and all your unlocks are reset so you can get the satisfying feeling of unlocking new things again.

I will stick to CoD4 and 2 tyvm. (particularly considering 4's maps are brilliant, and the DLC was free on PC)

Hell, even BC2:Vietnam was more different from BC2 than MW3 is from MW1 or MW2 and it only set me back a tenner.

frostypants2412d ago (Edited 2412d ago )

JokesOnYou, you do realize that Sledgehammer isn't gonna send you a gift basket for ignoring their f-ups, right?

It's becoming more and more obvious that Sledgehammer simply didn't have the knowledge to fix obvious glitches left over from MW2. Think about it: almost all the changes are superficial stuff, like killstreak logic and weapon unlocks. All these issues that seem similar and/or leftover from those in MW2 are engine's as if Sledgehammer didn't touch that part of it at all.

Really, for MW3 they just re-wallpapered MW2, maybe changed the drapes, re-arranged the furniture a bit, and called it a new game. These bugs, exploits, and lag issues are proof that they did little else. Even the new killstreaks...what few there are...betray this. Like the strafing's just some helicopter assets in pre-baked formation flying a straight line over the map. Probably took all of a day to finagle that lame one in...just copy-pasta the B2 or jet strike, change the models to helicopters, bombs to gunfire, and slow it down a bit.

It's as if they had no down-in-the-dirt coders on the project at all. Just people who re-arranged existing assets and made new textures.

Come to think of it, it all feels like a big user mod.

RSPproductionz2412d ago

Hold on a bloody second. That is my video and me in that video and this glitch can only be done in private matches. They were in MW2 and IW purposely put them in MW3 to cater for the large COD glitching community that prefers to get out of the maps and on top of buildings in private games than playing the game itself.

So why don't you all stop hating this is a feature of the game....

It would be fixed if they even bothered to upgrade anything this year. I played this game in 2005. Its mainstream pop music. If You don't realize that IW recycled a 6yr old game, repackaged it, and resold it under MW3, You are out of Your mind. This game has changed less than Madden does each year. Same graphics, same enviornments, same buildings, same physics, same hit boxes, same glitches, same game.

ZombieNinjaPanda2412d ago

Well, at least they're going green. Ya know, since all the recycling.

(Overused generic comment yep)

finbars752412d ago

Here's how you fix the game just trade it in.I can't figure out why you guys in here knew from day one that this was going to happen.I said before this game was even out that this was going to happen time and time again.Activision has only cared about there wallets once COD4 came out and relized they where onto something big.From then on they have given mediocre games without any improvements in all areas of COD.Bobby Kotick must have one he'll of a smile on his face right now knowing that he just screwed all you guys all overagain for the 7th year in a row.Just goes to show how gamers can't move onto bigger and better things.

Morpheuzpr2412d ago (Edited 2412d ago )

I doubt is gamers that are buying this bs of a game, its casuals that are buying it and the reason gaming is a joke of what it used to be. I mean the game is like flying a plane in autopilot. Its the virtual equivalent of drugs makes you feel good easy (ridiculous amount of aim assist) and instant satisfaction (killstreaks).

HenryFord2408d ago

aha... so casuals aren't gamers? And more important: They are not entitled to play because some elitists decides that this brings down the quality of their games?
Get over yourself already.

(Disclaimer: Not defending/liking MW3 here)

Euthanasia782408d ago

They are entitled, but as a hardcore gamer, I am entitled to skip this rehashed garbage. Only the uneducated about games would like this trash.

Speed-Racer2413d ago

I'm just giving it some time. Let them fix things.

Newsman2413d ago

It's the same game from 3 years ago, how long do they need?

Speed-Racer2413d ago


As soon as I saw P2P ranked servers, I was like F*** ... this all over again.

antz11042412d ago (Edited 2412d ago )

Agreed, Im enjoying it as it is. Kill Confirmed is my new favorite mode.

Personally I haven't seen this glitch, so I'm not going to get all bothered about it and spout off about a problem someone else has experienced.

Speed-Racer2412d ago

Me neither...but I've encountered walling games already, quite a few :(

frostypants2412d ago

Walling was an issue by day 2. LOL. I can't count how many killcams I've watched where a person tracked me through a wall, started firing at a seemingly random spot before I even showed up on his screen, etc. It's too precise to just be hearing footsteps.

Speed-Racer2412d ago

I'm not even sure why people are disagreeing with me. My very first MP game, a lot of us jumped in in a P2P TDM session ... and within 1 minute a guy racked up 46 kills while the rest of us barely got past 1 kill LOL... killcam showed that he was hacking the crap outta the game.

Swiggins2413d ago

I'd hardly consider that a gamebreaker, it's not like the people can't be shot from there so it's not like the rock glitch in MW2.

But still, they need to iron this crap out, they've had 5 games to work on this....

Starbucks_Fan2413d ago

As Patrick Star would say, we should take MW3, AND PUSH IT SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

seinfan2412d ago

That idea may just be crazy enough... TO GET US ALL KILLED!

DontShoot-Me-Bro2413d ago

Good, shame, i hope people find more exploits. Im not even a COD hater, I'm just a MW3 hater, its imo the worse COD I've ever played (i have only played COD games since MW2), If it did not have the brand name of "Call of duty" i have no doubt that people will be giving this game a 7/10 8/10 and no more. It brings absolutely nothing new to the table, except a new "game mode". I don't even like BF3, i sold it, but at least i see that BF3 is trying to push the boundaries of FPS's on consoles.

This generation is sooo sh!t!, Hurry up next generation, we need a change, hopefully new consoles might change that!

rant over :)

Sabian1872412d ago

How has this generation been "sh!t"??
In what perverted ranking system is this gen horrible.
Uncharted 1-3
Halo 3-Reach
Killzone 2
Alan Wake
God of War 2-3
Gears of War 1-3
Heavy Rain
Call of Duty 4
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Red Dead Redemption
InFamous 1-2
Assassin's Creed 1-?
Mass Effect 1-3
Left 4 Dead
Saints Row 1-3
Batman: Arkham Asylum-City
Little Big Planet
Grand Theft Auto 4
And so on and so on.....

See you 5 years into the next gen whining about the same thing.

ExCest2412d ago

I cannot believe you left Metal Gear Solid (doesn't matter which one) out.

But, good list.

Sabian1872412d ago

Darn it. I knew I forgot some great ones.
Metal Gear Solid
Elder Scrolls: Oblivion and Skyrim
Fallout 3
Portal 1-2
Forza Motorsports 3-4
Grand Torizmo 5
Dead Space 1-2

Still not seeing the sh!tty part of the gen.

bozebo2412d ago (Edited 2412d ago )

'tis a good gen.

But a list of great games from the previous gen or the one before that would be much, much longer. (probably caus of all the multiplats this gen and nintendo not being a major candidate with hardcore gamers anymore)

My main problem is that they tend to sacrifice gameplay, replayability, innovation and content for marketability this gen, and that's a damn shame.

New consoles will improve things because there won't be that DVD limit imposing severe restrictions on most multiplat games anymore.

But then again: the development costs, time restrictions, rigidness of design (they can't just change stuff halfway through, the game's design must be concrete from day 1 or its not possible to schedule the developers properly and keep to the deadlines) are all restricting the number of studios which are capable of making successfull titles. If a game doesn't sell well, they go bust (a typical boxed console title must sell millions to make profits).

The only improvement next gen will probably be graphics. They have reached the point where creativity is not limited by the hardware, but by practicality of development and retail.

They can't go and work on some new innovative idea because if it doesn't sit well with the consumers then they have to shut the doors or suck up to their publisher more :( Especially if the game is very content rich and was very expensive to develop (imagine morrowind or san andreas with the graphics & detail of this generation... A BD would probably struggle to fit the content).

ExCest2412d ago

Yep. Now you fixed it

Although i have yet to play even half of those said games lol but i know they're all good.

finbars752412d ago

I have to disagree with you a little.I love BF3 and hate MF3 more then anything on this planet but to say that this generation is shit is just ludacris.Maybe you are just nieve or just started playing video games for the fist time in the last 2 years but man you are missing out on some of the greatest games of all time.Sabian187 hit it right on the nail with all those games.Even though I don't like some of them I still have an appreciation for what they have done for this generation of gaming those are just facts.

Euthanasia782408d ago

Has! You have singlehandedly lowered the average IQ of this forum. Does Your brain even know what Ur mouth is saying? You sound RIDICULOUS. This gen is crap? All I can say is I feel sorry for Ur ability to decipher a good game from a bad one. This gen has been boss. Better than the last gen. Sure things will get better, but this gen does not suck. You just have awful taste.
