Call of Duty Modern Warfare_04

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is out now, which means the day one patch is currently live on all platforms. Infinity Ward has fixed a number of issues since the beta, including the overall quality of spawns. Your experience may vary but the developer promises that it will continue to improve this “map by map post-launch.”

Other fixes include improved safety checking when spawning on squadmates in Ground War. Spawning on squadmates in vehicles is also possible in the mode so if you see someone driving a tank, it’s possible to hop in. And if you were terrified of helicopters already, they now have flares to deal with any missiles.

Check out the full patch notes here. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is out now for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. You can check out some gameplay from the “Clean House” campaign mission here. For more details on the game’s progression and seasonal content, head here.


Spawning in Core Multiplayer:

  • Fixed edge case scenarios with spawning on enemies
  • Adjusted spawn logic to improve spawn quality. We’ve also added more spawns to increase your options. We will continue to improve this map by map post-launch

Ground War:

  • Added more fallback spawns to FOBs if the flag has too many enemies
  • Improved safety checking for spawning on Squadmates (is still dangerous, but the UI will notify you of this!)
  • Added spawning on Squadmates while in vehicles
  • Neutral tanks and helicopters now show up in the Spawn Selection screen
  • Helicopters now have flares to help manage incoming missiles
  • If all flags are captured by one team, you’ll go into Defcon to win so protect those flags!
  • Fix for an exploit that was allowing players (and therefore teammates) to spawn under the map


Brightened characters in dark areas across many maps

Low Health Visuals:

Now brightens up in the middle of the screen instead of darkening

Weapon Balance:

In general, weapons received a lot of love since the Beta. Most notably shotguns and pistols.


  • Enemy claymores now have larger, visible lasers
  • Reviving a teammate near a friendly claymore could cause the claymore to explode, resulting in a suicide
