A Strange Bug in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's Zombies Mode

A Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 player recently encountered a perplexing bug after purchasing a Mystery Box in the Zombies mode. Over the past few weeks, players of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone have received a wealth of new content, alongside exciting updates about the highly anticipated 2024 release, Black Ops 6.

Season 4 Reloaded: New Content and Features

Season 4 Reloaded for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone was released on June 26, introducing a plethora of new content including weapons, aftermarket parts, maps, and game modes. Among the new features is a wave-based combat mode called Unstable Rift, which allows players to obtain schematics and reset cooldowns on insured weapons. Despite the update addressing numerous bugs, it appears that some bugs still persist, leading to unexpected and amusing gameplay moments.

The Mysterious Mystery Box Bug

In a recent Reddit post, user iLegacy96 shared a video showcasing a bug where the player received nothing after purchasing a Mystery Box in-game. The video shows the Mystery Box cycling through weapons, only to display a golden light without presenting any weapon. To verify the glitch, the player purchased another Mystery Box, hoping their in-game friend might have better luck. Unfortunately, the friend also received nothing but the golden light, which amusingly turned green after being stabbed by the original player.


Community Reactions and Humor

The Reddit post garnered a significant number of upvotes and comments from fellow MW3 and Warzone players, many of whom joined in on the joke by mimicking the incomplete display of the Mystery Box. One commenter humorously referred to the player as an "airbender," while another joked about finally seeing the inside of the briefcase from Pulp Fiction. Despite the humor, it was undoubtedly a frustrating experience for the player who missed out on the new weapons.

Ongoing Issues: Bugs vs. Cheating

While bugs like the Mystery Box glitch can be annoying, they are not as detrimental as the ongoing issue of cheating in CoD MW3 and Warzone. Despite robust anti-cheat mechanisms, cheating remains a significant problem, with players frequently expressing frustration in nearly every match. Although new measures have been implemented to combat cheating, it continues to be a pervasive issue for many players.

Looking Forward to Black Ops 6

As fans grapple with these issues, they eagerly anticipate the next major release in the franchise, Black Ops 6, set for launch on October 25. Black Ops 6 will feature a spy narrative set during the Gulf War era, with some beloved characters from the subseries going rogue to complete their missions.
