Players of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) are reportedly facing a troubling new bug that introduces Player versus Player (PvP) combat into the Zombies mode. Originally designed as a Player versus Environment (PvE) experience, allowing players to battle supernatural creatures without the threat of enemy squads, this bug disrupts the intended gameplay by enabling player damage.
@WilsonatorYT shared a short clip on Twitter (X) highlighting this anomaly, although the trigger event was not explicitly showcased. This potential game-breaking error could lead to a portion of the player base steering away from the popular zombie mode.
If this bug persists, it transforms the playlist into something reminiscent of Modern Warfare 2's Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), where the entire map becomes a battleground for survival, with squads competing against each other.
Examining the specifics of the Modern Warfare 3 bug:
Disclaimer: The existence of the bug is unconfirmed, and as of now, the clip embedded in this article is the sole reported occurrence.twit_1738157103997493382
The video shows a player shooting down another operator's vehicle and subsequently damaging the enemy player. This occurrence is highly unnatural within MW3's zombie mode, designed for cooperative teamplay against various monsters.
While the cause of this newfound problem has not been officially announced by the developers, speculation points to a malfunction in the game's vehicle mechanics. This potential glitch might result in players taking incoming damage from others, disrupting the intended collaborative experience.
Although unconfirmed, if the bug persists, it could lead to aggressive players preying on others and looting resources. The developers are expected to address this issue promptly, releasing an update to restore balance and maintain a fair playing field for the entire player base.
