Time and time again, the world of Modern Warfare and Warzone is plagued by broken, overpowered guns and impenetrable bus stops. The latest is a new weapon added to the recently launched Season 6. The AS Val, with its SPP 10-round magazine attachment, has a rather serious problem. Overpowered is an understatement, as the weapon can perform some rather incredible miracles. The attachment in question provides the weapon with special armor-piercing ammo designed for advanced penetration.
On the right surface, a bullet can cut through them as easily as a block of cheese. In this instance, the AS Val shoots through virtually any wall at all (completely damage-free), and kill targets with ease.
Youtuber TheXclusiveAce discovered the bug and released a clip to his Youtube channel of the buggy gun. While it remains unfixed, players are naturally going to take full advantage of the flaw and use it for maximum gain. Clips on Reddit further demonstrate the weapon’s absurd wall-breaching capabilities.
This of course is not the first major bug we’ve seen in Call Of Duty. Some time back, a bus stop shelter located in the MP Cheshire Park map was deemed bulletproof, acting as the perfect blockade from a barrage of bullets. Then there’s the more recent graphical corruption issue. Upon selecting a weapon from a loadout, the weapon of choice inexplicably transforms into a chaos theory of unprocessed textures, obscuring a player’s line of fire and half the screen. This makes it rather difficult to do basically anything.
Yesterday, Activision confirmed via a social media post that they had collectively banned more than 200,000 players across Modern Warfare and Warzone’s platforms. Such a high number is no surprise considering the scale of the problem the studio faces with in-game cheaters. While the percentage for each platform hasn’t been unspecified, it’s created a dent in a sizeable problem.
The anti-cheat update on Twitter reads that the team is “continuing to deploy additional security updates and added backend enforcement tools. Zero tolerance for cheating.”
