A brand new patch to Name of Responsibility: Fashionable Warfare 2 has lastly mounted one of many game’s long-standing glitches. After remaining unchecked because the game was launched, Fashionable Warfare 2’s armour piercing ammo would not pierce armour anymore. Wait. What?

Sure, you learn that right. Amid a bunch of patch notes consisting of bog-standard bugfixes and steadiness tweaks, Raven has slipped in a baffling adjustment to the way in which MW2’s AP ammunition works. The patch has “Eliminated injury multiplier towards armored opponents,” which implies it will now do as a lot injury to armoured enemies as common ammo. Welcome to a brand new world of armour-respecting ammunition.

Okay, the patch hasn’t made AP ammo completely ineffective. You possibly can nonetheless use it to deal extra injury towards enemy autos and killstreaks, however you have to admit the identify makes barely any sense beneath this new configuration. MW2 would have been higher off altering the identify to one thing much less misleading. As it’s, numerous gamers are going to be caught questioning why their anti-armour rounds are plinking off their enemies like BB gun pellets.

Regardless of the motive for it, gamers within the Fashionable Warfare 2 subreddit have wasted no time making enjoyable of the change. A person named Bstempinski predicts that the following update will learn, “Hollowpoint causes the enemy to maneuver sooner and allows slide cancelling,” whereas the announcement thread’s top-rated remark merely reads, “It is now simply ammo”. As a result of that is the web, some are simply pounding the keyboard in a match of rage, however only a few are welcoming the change or the (lack of) messaging round it.

It is not that Fashionable Warfare 2 would not want patching, in any case, simply that this can be a unusual update to make. In the previous couple of days alone, gamers have been exploiting bugs to show themselves into speedy, murderous primates after they have not been glitching their method into straight-up Superman-style flight. To be honest, these glitches may be too enjoyable to repair, however hopefully future patches will encompass bug repairs and never, you already know, making tracer rounds more durable to see.
