We recently told you that Infinity Ward were planning to release Title update 6 for the online multiplayer component of Modern Warfare 3, and now we’re pleased to confirm that the download is now available on all platforms of the game.
Infinity Ward has been making use of a great new format on their official forums in which they now inform Call of Duty players what updates have been released so far for the game, and also what exact areas they are working on for future updates.
Title Update 6 is now available for MW3 as of yesterday, and we can tell you that one of the main fixes to the game is an overall improvement of lag which players have been complaining about. There’s also a fix to melee jump and restrictions put in place to stop gamers using clan tag symbols to display ‘filthy’ words in game.
As with every Title update released for the game, there’s also a notable list of hot fixes that have been applied to the game. These target a few specific weapons, and we can tell you that the FMG9 has been nerfed slightly, including when attached with the akimbo accessory. The Type95 has also been tweaked to reduce hipspread, and there’s also an unclassified fix for the ACR rifle in relation to equipping a red dot or shotgun on it.
You’ll also be pleased to hear that certain map exploits have been fixed up on Dome as well, so that should make gameplay a little more satisfying with regards to that map. Hopefully Dome will remain exploit free now, but exploit-free and the words Call of Duty do not really blend well together these days as you’ll probably agree. Thanks to frequent Title Updates like this though, we’re confident that Infinity Ward are better equipped to sort out the problems than they were with say Modern Warfare 2, which got a bit messy to say the least.
If you are playing the game now after installing Title Update 6, let us know how gameplay is for you at the moment. Have you discovered any new problems that we should know about?
