Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Player Finds A Way To Farm Weapon XP
For some gamers Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II’s XP grind isn’t fast enough to rank higher, and they’ve taken it upon themselves to speed up the process.
As found by a user on Reddit, the process is simple. All you need is a suppression mine and adequate courage to face an enemy tank with an open top, and once you’ve found that vehicle, you can jump onto it and place your mine behind the turret. Find a safe place to hide, and watch the XP flow in as players inside of the tank are constantly hit by the mine. Repeat as necessary and you’ll soon work your way up multiple ranks in multiplayer.
This is of course not how Activision planned for players to earn XP, and by the time you read this, the exploit could have been singled out for a brief hotfix. Infinity Ward has been quick on the trigger to squash any bugs, and the latest patch has already targeted a number of exploits. That update has fixed “various map exploits” and has addressed an issue that previously stopped players from being able to edit their Profile Showcase.
Since its released, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II has had a high number of bugs that players have documented, such as one exploit that allowed enemies to be shot through walls. Infinity Ward is keeping track of any issues in the game’s multiplayer mode with a public Trello board, with visual glitches and hard crashes on the current list.
Those little issues haven’t stopped Modern Warfare II from being a massive hit this year, as the game earned $800 million worldwide in just three days and has had the greatest PlayStation store release of all time for the COD series.
