Modern Warfare’s Latest Update Patch Notes: More Weapon Tuning

Modern Warfare’s latest update is expected to be rolled out around 12am PST on Tuesday. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare patch 1.07 was released last week and included new maps, a new playlist, and the new Shoot House 24/7 mode alongside numerous fixes and stability improvements across all platforms. This update seems to be a supplementary update to the larger update released last week. Since there is not a huge variety of changes coming we have included the patch notes in their entirety here in the article.  Check it out:

General Fixes:

  • More backend fixes to prevent crashes and improve stability across all modes and all platforms

Riot Shield:

  • Fix for a bug where a player using the Riot Shield would not take explosive damage during certain situations

  • Fixed an issue where the Riot Shield would stow on the players back when using Stim. (Tactical)


  • Adjusted to always play walk footstep sounds when in ADS and crouch independent of speed

  • Increased the speed in which you can remain using the walk footstep sounds by slightly pressing on the movement stick


  • General fix for the UI and Challenge state getting out of sync. We’ll continue to monitor and make additional fixes as needed in future updates

  • Fix for a challenge related error that could occur; DEV ERROR 5476

  • Fix for Mission Challenge description, “Get Kills with a Burst Weapons” being too vague.


  • Spawn tuning while playing TDM and Domination

  • Domination flag adjustments; B Flag is now near the busses instead of the center fountain


  • ARs: Minor hip spread adjustment

  • 725: Reduce range

  • M4: increase hip spread, decrease damage to the head

  • FAL: Reduced recoil, increased ADS speed

  • EB-14: Increase ADS speed

  • Miscellaneous ammo reserve adjustments upon spawning to be in-line with other weapons of their class

Special Operations:

  • Fix for a bug where a player using the Overkill perk with an SMG as their secondary would sometimes spawn without a primary weapon when joining a match in progress

As you can tell, more weapon tuning has been included in the 1.08 update.  And as many players have discovered, the highly disputed 725 shotgun changes in last week’s update didn’t seem to suffice.  The 725 as well as the M4 both will be seeing more nerfs with the new update.

For now, we will see how the community responds to Modern Warfare’s latest update.  And as always, we will continue to cover the latest news and updates with all of your favorite gaming franchise’s.
