MW3 world record video, sums up what’s wrong with Call of Duty

Last week we told you all about a video clip where someone managed to get Modern Warfare 3’s M.O.A.B killstreak reward in just 62 seconds, well now we have another video to show you which obliterates this time, however we are not impressed as the spawn trapping techniques used which pretty much sums up exactly why many opted for BF3 over MW3 this year.

We have embedded a video at the bottom of this post which has been viewed over 130,000 times and has many dislikes, this is because the tactics used are extremely ‘cheap’, despite being executed perfectly. Basically whilst playing Domination on the Mission map an entire team traps their enemy’s at the ‘A’ zone, here one player literally sits behind a fence and constantly picks off enemys as they spawn, this allows him to set some unconfirmed World records such as most M.O.A.B killstreak rewards for a single player (3), most kills in a round for one player (144), most M.O.A.B killstreak rewards for a team (7) and fastest M.O.A.B ever (roughly 48 seconds).

The post game stats shown below highlight just how effective and rediculous spawn trapping can be in MW3 – what annoys us the most is the fact that the uploader seems proud of the video! As you can see one of the enemies gets 0 kills and 77 deaths no-matter how bad a player is, this should not be possible.

This is a great example of how CoD multiplayer can suck at times, obviously this is perhaps the most dramatic example of such tactics being used, but it just goes to show that some aspects of the game really need to be looked at – it remind us of the 511-9 video which resulted in a Black Ops player getting a ban back in March, surely Infinity Ward can do something to resolve such spawn trapping tactics…

So what solutions are there? Well first of all it is only really the Domination game mode which allows such an exploit as it is easy to capture two zones and then leave one zone for the enemy to keep as they will constantly spawn near it. Perhaps the game could detect when spawn trapping is taking place (based on kill times and zones held) and then start spawning people in more random areas on the map, this would have a huge effect on the spawn trap as camping spawn trappers could be taken out easily, or perhaps a different zone could be captured which would also change the pattern of the game.

We would love to hear your opinion on the video embedded below, watch it, get annoyed and then share your opinionated views on the matter in the comments section.

Should Infinity Ward be doing more to stop such tactics being used? Should this gamer be banned? Let us know what you think….

There is nothing wrong with spawn camping if the game allows you to do it as long as it isn’t an outright cheat or flaw that was unintentional.  Personally, I don’t see how it can be any fun to simply kill people for 5+ minutes because they are helpless to stop you.  This isn’t someone who knows how to play the game, but knows how to take advantage of the design flaws in the game.

The easiest way to solve the problem – Make the person spawning invincible for 5 seconds or have a limited area around the spawn point be an area where players can’t be hurt for a certain period of time.  You could also have a bright flash of light that covers the spawn area everytime someone appears so the spawn camper can’t see exactly where there at.

“Waahhh! Modern Warfare 3!  Waaaah!”  That’s what you sound like.

I think when someone is spawn camping, the game should detect it and spawn players aiming at the camper, or in places where they can sneak up on him easily. No one could survive long enough to take advantage of a spot like that.

The players that stayed are low level players…. It’s a pretty good spawn trap though… But u can tell these guys spend 24 hours on this game,hard out practicing,learning every spawn… Get a girlfriend and stop wanking… Lol…

to be honest it just shows how not good he is for the fact being he has to camp to get a kill also i think its a private room if im honest because when playing in a normal matchmaking game the enemies names are in red while on this video they are orange…. and the only time they are orange is when its a private room…. Too me he deserves a ban for boosting at least. because at the end of what you see those people he’s facing do know too quit but aren’t i could say they are… Read more »

This is just one reason I will never touch a CoD game ever again, among many known reasons why this game series should be on its way out!. I still find it hard to believe that this game sold as well as it did!?. I understand this is simply one persons opinion, but the masses who swear by the CoD franchise have sadly been ripped off hopefully for the last time…

games not 100% flawed. yes the respawning trap is lame and i personally have been trapped in it but there are ways around it. though anyone that really spawn camps really have no life and are really pathetic. showing a video when your the one making it does not help. merely promotes you being a D-Bag.

This could all be easily prevented if spawn protection was implemented like you have in Gears 3.

this is a record?  In call of duty 4 online on the map “Killhouse” you can easily get scores that high on a full server.  Go back a few years for the true record which is probably higher.

Yet it still won The Best Shooter of 2011 according to VGAs and Gametrailers, no wonder people don’t think much of gaming.

-“hey bro, we got a camper @ homebase. killed me twice trying to get a plane” -“where?” -“hiding behind a wall, where the jets spawns. u see him?” -“hold a minute… yep. see him. he is open from the right go flank him, easy kill.” -“cant do. he is aware of me. he must have a scope, shooting an assault rifle. cant frag him from here, he is too far. can you snipe him?” -“hold a minute… … …good. he is gone now.” -“thanks bro.” Conversations like this are so common among my “teammates”… That is why we never play… Read more »

stop the rehashed Call of Duty series forever. It lost its spark after MW2.Simple as said.

People are fake because being real is too hard for them. Maybe they don’t know they have the ability to accomplish anything or maybe they just weren’t raised right, I don’t know, it’s sad.

its not his fault the enemy team was too stupid to realize that there was an option to back out of the game ,specifically designed for something like this. no he should not get banned. And yes, Map Pack 3 *cough* *cough* i mean MW3 is a piece of shite.

Can’t they leave the game? The non cheaters, i mean.

Drew Cable

that is why BF3 has the option to spawn at your base and the flags are neutral. You also have the option to spawn of squad mates. if one person were to get out of that then three others could cap a different flag creating a new spawn point. COD games always have horrible spawns. tell me again why people pay $60 a year for this?

Don’t ban him, since he was in no way cheating.

Just fix your damn game, Infinity Ward.

This is something that even N64 shooters didn’t have, Jesus Christ.

Joshua Bonorino

I stated before the problem is not the game the problem is the people who just ruins the game and does something like this cheap tricks to win the game

What a disgusting game, it sure is fun, but they’re the same thing each year, I stick to COD 4. But in spite of spawn trapping techniques, Black Ops felt a little bit more balanced and accessible for noobs.
