Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was fully released on Friday, and we have been having an absolute blast this weekend past partying up like it was 2007, with the experience being relatively smooth... shockingly so, when compared to the launch of contemporaries like Battlefield 2042.
However, one particularly galling bug has reared its head, and you could be forgiven for thinking that players that seem to know exactly where you are at all times might be using some kind of wallhack. Some players definitely can see you through walls, but it's the result of a glitch, not the work of cheaters.
As you can see in the clip above, posted by Redditor zFSStatic, players that have been killed were able to ping an enemy during the death screen, and this ping would subsequently last for the rest of the match, allowing the player to be tracked even through solid objects.
As reported by Eurogamer, the ping system itself seems to have been quietly disabled over the course of the weekend, which is probably a necessary evil, but certainly makes it harder to coordinate with one's squadmates in the heat of battle. There is no word on a fix yet, but it seems like Infinity Ward is aware of the issue, and hopefully, a patch is incoming.
Did you fall prey to this wallhack glitch? Do you assume (like us) that every unwarranted death must have been the work of rotten, no-good cheaters? Come up with excuses in the comments section below.
