CoD: MW & Warzone patch fixes the AS VAL, nerfs the SP-R 208, but misses the Stim bug

Infinity Ward’s CoD: Modern Warfare & Warzone has just received a new patch that tweaks a couple of known issues. Season 6 hasn’t been perfect so far, and players are frustrated with the presence of bugs and exploits. Disrespectful players will always be on the rise whenever a game offers them a free win, even if it’s an exploit.

One of them was the renowned AS VAL intense wall bang bug, which allowed bullet penetration through multiple walls – a relatively moderate bug that granted a slight advantage over others. The new marksmen rifle, SP-R 208, was also nerfed. It was known as a hitscan weapon – a powerful bullet velocity that had to be reduced.

However, the primary topic among today’s changes is still the Stim bug that allows players to stay in the gas for an infinite period of time and heal themselves. This results in winning games without even encountering a fight, a rather pesky scenario that no one loves to see. This stim bug hasn’t been posted in the patch notes, which means it’s probably not fixed. Nevertheless, it may be a way for Infinity Ward to toy with all those who abused it and purposely make them try the same after the patch landed. We’ll be tracking this and let you know if it’s fixed or not.

You can find all of the changes below, as posted on InfinityWard’s official website. The update is already available to download.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
