Modern Warfare Update Aims To Improve Piccadilly, Weapons & Challenges

Modern Warfare 1.08 Update

The most recent Call of Duty Modern Warfare update (v1.08) has been released. The update went live on November 12, 2019 across all platforms. The primary objective of the update appears to be to improve current issues players have been complaining about.

The first major change comes to one of players least favorite maps Piccadilly. Prior to the patch, players were able to trap the enemy team in one the maps 3 spawn points. By trapping a team in one spawn point it was easy for games to spiral out of control and be very one-sided. The last update addressed the spawn trapping and has tuned spawns in Team Deathmatch and Domination. Not only have the spawns been changed in Domination but they have also moved the B flag. The B flag is no longer near the center fountain but has been moved to be closer to the buses.

In addition to the Piccadilly changes, there has been UI changes made to help challenges report correctly. Previously, challenges weren’t synced up to show progress when trying to complete objective based challenges. The update looks to improve the sync and display progress correctly. Along with attempting to fix the sync issues, changes have been made to challenges that were causing the “DEV ERROR 5476” crashing error.

The final major adjustment in patch 1.08 is weapon tuning. Assault rifles have had their hip fire spread adjusted, the 725 has reduced range (again), the M4A1 has had it’s hip fire spread increased and damage to the head decreased, the FAL has had recoil reduced and the ADS speed increased, the EB-14 has had ADS time increased and other changes to reserve ammo has been made.
