Modern Warfare 3: New shotgun jump glitch could be a game-breaker

By Alan Ng - Nov 14, 2011

We recently informed you about some glitches that were happening in Modern Warfare 3 single-player and co-op survival straight after the game launched, and now we have yet another one to show you, casting a shadow over the game once again as negative gameplay threatens to ruin the experience for fair players.

This new glitch has been found in the multiplayer version of the game and a video we have to show you lets you see how a group of MW3 players can climb to the top of buildings, seemingly floating in the air due to something known as ‘shotgun boosting’ which is apparently the new thing for gamers to exploit in multiplayer.

Watch how they can super jump to different parts of the rooptop when shotgun jumping in mid air – it’s pretty crazy actually that this kind of thing wasn’t spotted by Infinity Ward. You can bet that it will be patched up though in the next title update for the game as it’s clear to see that it proves a clear advantage for players if they can reach out-of-bounds areas and hide from unsuspecting victims.

This glitch was found by RSPProductionz and can be achieved on the Fallen map. Watch it below and let us know if you have seen anyone in the game using it. Is it a ‘game-breaking’ glitch or one of the more ‘harmless’ glitches in your opinion? We’re guessing that a lot of you are probably trying to emulate these shotgun jumps after seeing them in game, so we’re interested to hear what you have to say about it.

With that said and done, if you play multiplayer ‘normally’ and have become frustrated about this particular glitch, you can look forward to this glitch being eradicated from the game in the next update.
