MW3: Patch 1.06 update coming for Xbox 360, PS3 – First details

By Posted 6 Dec 2011, 17:57

We have some good news for Modern Warfare 3 players now, as Infinity Ward has just confirmed that a new patch update is on the way for all platforms of the game. Patch 1.06 on console, or Title update 6 for the PC doesn’t have a release ETA yet, but we do have the first details on what will be included in the update.

Robert Bowling, the community manager for Infinity Ward has posted some very useful information on the official Call of Duty forums. When discussing all the previous patch notes that have been released for the game so far, he also took the opportunity to reveal the first information on what Infinity Ward are planning to fix in the next update for the game, which will be Title Update 6 or patch 1.06.

You’ll be pleased to know that they are planning to take measures to improve lag performance further and also provide a fix for melee jump. Measures to prevent frequent stats loss will also be taken in the next update, while they will be improving host migration as well – often a cause of much frustration you’ll agree.

There’s also a collection of updates that they are currently ‘discussing’, which means that they could appear in the next title update if demand is high enough. These include an update to the spawn system and a default 30 round start timer for games played in the system link mode.

You can read through the full list of changes, plus all the changes made to Modern Warfare 3 in previous patch updates over on the official forum here. How happy are you with the game at the moment? Do you think Infinity Ward has done a good job with the overall balance of multiplayer, or do you think there are specific areas that need looking at? If so, share your thoughts with us below.

    When are they going to fix the type 95.  I mean come on it is a three shot burst and kills in two bullets!  If I want to go play hardcore I would go play it.

    THEY NEED TO FIX THE MATCHMAKING ON 360…BECAUSE IT IS SIMPLY NOT AS GOOD AS IN PRIOR COD GAMES…IT CAN’T FIND GAMES OF ANY KIND…AND THE ONLY WAY I CAN JOIN A GAME IS THRU A RECENT PLAYER LIST…WHILE IF I TRY TO FIND ONE ALONE THRU MATCHMAKING I GET THE MESSAGE -NO GAMES FOUND-…BUT THRU RECENT PLAYERS LIST I CAN PLAY WITH USA PLAYERS AS WELL WITH PLAYERS FROM EU FROM WHERE I ORIGINALLY AM FROM !!!!!

      try going to the ‘options’ at the main multiplayer screen and turning off match recording, it helped me :) also if you have a large friends list, it uses up bandwith downloading their stats,so you may want to delete a few (tho this makes little difference) And always ensure that your NAT is ‘open’

    fmg 9 akimbo and akimbo general need a big nerf it ruins the game
    pumpguns are good as they are not so strong it also require no rly aim
    to kill soimeone in my opinion i hate the stalker boys. nerf the mp7
    with steady aim and and specialist killstreak wtf but way not so
    horrible as other akimbo wapons

    in my opinion just add a “no
    wapon attatchment” rule in barebones so everybody who hate that horrible
    op akimbos and so on can join barebones without having killsteaks and
    akimbos because akimbo is an wapon atatchment or add a playmod like
    “moshpit esl rules” that would be fantastic and a lot of people would
    play it definetly, so the pros can play vs pros and nabs vs nabs so the
    nabs are not so disapointed by getting raped by mutch better players and
    fear getting killed which possible reduce the sitting in the corner
    camper guys with the akimbos

    just my meaning hope u listen to the community with best regards felix

      I don’t have too much problem with akimbo weapons. Up close they should be deadly. I would like an update to shotguns thoughs. Too many time, my Model just won’t someone wh ois within target range. If you miss, or it doesn’t do it’s job, consider yourself dead becuase it takes too long to fire the next volley.

      One thing i would really like to see though is a matching making tool to allow you to find people more your speed, whether that it by K/D or prestige. I really hate joining a random room of noobs who refuse to work together, speak, or just simply act a fool. I don’t want to join a game with a guy goin 0-20 and losing it for the whole team.

    M16 needs huge improvements, it sucks sweaty balls right now. it takes 3 bullets to kill and only fires a three round burst. as more than half of MW3 multiplayer is CQB, your going to get raped unless you bare with it long enough for the shotgun attachment, though you will still be outgunned in mid range. next, all the machine pistols need a serious nerf, and the regular pistols, need a major increase in damage. finally, I really think SOH should have been a proficeincy and not a perk.
