Modern Warfare 3 Title Fix Nerfs Akimbo

Modern Warfare 3 Title Fix Nerfs Akimbo

Update eight for Modern Warfare 3 has gone live and it brings some much needed balance to the shooter.  Infinity Ward addressed akimbo weapons in the update, reducing the rate of fire for all dual weilding weapons.  They also rebalanced shotguns, bringing some balance to the overpowered Striker model.  The developer also squashed the prestige token glitch which was seeing players token-less after prestiging.

For Call of Duty video makers, YouTube upload speeds have been increased from 32k to 256k making it easier to share your glory with friends.  It’s also said that host disadvantage/lag compensation has undergone yet further tweaks.

The update should be live shortly for all platforms.  The first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 DLC has also just hit Xbox Live servers and features two new maps, with monthly DLC arriving for Call of Duty: Elite premium members.

    • That Guy

      people complain that guns are overpowered when its either not the gun they like to use or they suck with it.

  • Heavenswarrior121

    That guy i kno its like every little thing people complain,the only thing i complain about is take the “heart beat sensor” out and “final ass stand” if they do that i wont complain about NOTHING!

  • SpazticAssassin

    • AIRFREAK

  • JACK-THIS1

    Wow, Its been awhile and it’s seems like people are getting along this days. BF3 players actually playing mw3.
    Akimbo FMG9 are amazing! I just dont know how to use it.
    i’m all for nerfing the striker, That shotgun is just stupid. I hardly get owned by one, but i do get pissed off when i get sprayed.

  • counter troll ops

    cant tell about the update on the Striker, still geting pooed on by it from a ways away any how thats the only gun i thanks OP in mw3 so not to bad

  • Paul

    This update has made akimbo weapons pointless, thanks again people who suck. Maybe they should nerf all the weapons, maybe we should run around without guns, that would make all the sucky people happy. Its so much more realistic now to require 64 bullets for a kill instead of 45.

  • ThatAdolfGuy
