Call of Duty fans bemoan infinite money resolution, while other issues remain

Activision was kept busy over the Thanksgiving weekend fixing a popular Call of Duty bug that gave infinite money and weapon XP.

The now-fixed exploit allows you to repeatedly sell weapons at the game’s buy stations in exchange for XP. As a quick fix to the problem, XP from Buy Stations was nerfed to counter the number of people quickly upgrading their weapons.

But, as fans quickly found out, this left the game’s white dumpster Dead Drops as an option. This lasted for half a day or so, until it was also countered by another change behind the scenes.

These methods were wrong and absolutely should not be in the game. Still, fans have expressed frustration with Activision’s ability to quickly pounce on issues deemed to have been beneficial to players, rather than any of the many other issues that have existed in the game since launch.

“How many patches did they put out for the failed missions in the DMZ?” wrote a player on reddit. “None. What about the bugged drawings that use your insured slot but allow you to have fists in the game? Nothing.”

“I’m shocked why they keep killing these bugs SO fast,” said another. “There are still broken spawns in TDM, still broken quests and some other UI issues (which are way better than before).

“These bugs don’t affect revenue, they don’t affect gameplay, they don’t do anything to give you an unfair advantage. It just keeps you from pouring HOURS of gameplay into a single gun you’ll never touch again.”

But therein may lie the answer – since upgrading weapons is one of Warzone’s main reasons to keep playing, it’s likely that Activision sees such bugs as a threat to the live service’s overall longevity.

Warzone 2.0 has had an interesting start, as players experiment with flying boats, invisibility and the ability to fly like Superman. However, the game’s proximity-based chat has been going well.
