Many of you queued for Modern Warfare 3 last night, therefore you probably stayed up later than usual trying out the many game modes. Unsurprisingly glitches have already been found in the game (none of which ruin multiplayer like MW2’s infamous Care Package glitch). One of these MW3 glitches lets you get out of the map during the campaign, the other is a sneaky spot which makes Survival mode on the Resistance map much easier.
Let’s start with the spot on Resistance. When you start the game and keep heading to your left (South East on the HUD) you will find a small set of stairs to go up, which leads to medium-sized balcony with some tables, chairs and umbrellas on it. Here head to the far edge, jump onto the sign post and then jump onto what looks like a bus stop. When you are on the bus stop you can lay down and pick of the enemies on the balcony very easily, in fact when prone it is almost impossible to get hit.
Obviously later in the game when helicopters get involved etc, so things will get more tricky, also you’re likely to run out of ammo, so you will have to use the spot cleverly and pick up ammo when the coast is clear. We have embedded two videos at the bottom of this post, the top of which shows you how to find this spot.
The next glitch isn’t quite as exciting, but worth a mention none-the-less. When working your way through the campaigns Bag and Drag mission you will witness an AC 130 strike, soon after this you will walk down a narrow street and see a portaloo / portapotti (see below). You can use the objects around this to get on to of it, you then jump from the toilet across the street onto the fencing, walk around it to the end of it and then strafe right onto the sign. You then jump into the large pile of trash and through the fencing on the other side – volia you are now out of the map.
You can see videos showing you exactly how to perform both glitches below, have you spotted any other glitches? If so please email me, preferably with screenshots or a video. It will be interesting to see if Sledgehammer Games / Infinity Ward patch these minor exploits, we will keep you posted as we discover more.
