Modern Warfare III’s Latest Patch Runs Into ‘Unforeseen Issues’

Sledgehammer Games and Treyarch have dropped a new update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III that was intended to bring numerous fixes to the game. And while the released patch did still address issues with the shooter’s performance, most notably during parts of the Zombies campaign and in the launcher menu, some aspects of the update have been postponed after the devs encountered unexpected difficulties with pushing them through.

In a November 15 blog post on the game’s official website, the two studios broke down what update 1.33 was intended to address. Some of those fixes were implemented as planned, including various stability and map fixes, as well as specific tweaks to game modes (Team Deathmatch’s score limit has been increased from 75 to 100 points) and weapon progression (bolt attachments for the KATT-AMR sniper rifle now unlock when they’re supposed to). However, Sledgehammer Games and Treyarch have since noted that not every change planned for the update was applied due to “unforeseen issues,” with key problems such as Multiplayer weapon balancing and some Zombies gameplay fixes coming in the next available update. All of this is outlined and tracked on the teams’ public Trello board.

That said, update 1.33 still contains an important fix for the Zombies campaign. There was an issue which caused missions in Act 2 and Act 3 to not auto-queue, with players reporting they’d have to leave the session after each mission in order to start the next one. This update should rectify that problem so you can continue playing through the story without having to back out of the match.

There’s also a fix to a crash you might’ve encountered when moving through Modern Warfare III’s Progression or Store tabs in the Launcher Menu while waiting in the queue, which should make your lobby experience a bit smoother.

Elsewhere in update 1.33 are some general tweaks to the single-player campaign, including fixes for PC players who ran into crashes during the restart sequence after updating the game, as well as for bugs that resulted in error messages when launching the campaign, gameplay-related crashes in the Oligarch mission, and more. You can check out the patch notes below:
