For those who have been wondering about the state of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare content roadmap, you may be relieved to know that a recent patch has kicked things into gear for what is proving to be the last bit of a pretty exciting first season. With an update to give players the chance to earn a Crossbow and more, we're definitely excited to crack into everything. Here's what we know about the Call of Duty Modern Warfare January 22 patch notes.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare January 22 Patch Notes
There was a patch yesterday which implemented a number of new things in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, including a playlist update where they've given us back Aniyah Palace (hell yeah). Players have also had their loadout slots increased, and those who weren't into Shoot House 24/7 now have Shoot the Ship and Capture the Flag to look forward to.
There were also some other general hotfixes and the removal of Krovnik Farmland because of bugs, so it looks like the dev team is keeping an active eye on things that might still be going wrong. After the tweet above from the official Modern Warfare account indicated that there are existing issues, it looks like we might even be expecting another patch soon to tape things up but until then, we've pulled the full patch notes from Infinity Ward's website for you below:
- Playlist Update: Added Capure the Flag and Shoot the Ship (Removes Shoot House 24/7) playlists! We also added Aniyah Palace back into rotation
- 5 additional loadout slots!
- New Weapon -- Crossbow! Unlocked by using a Marksman Rifle with a Reflex Optic, get 5 kills in 25 different matches!
- In some cases, players could hit an invisible kill trigger in a bush that would cause them to die instantly while near A Flag on Port. This has been fixed.
- Fixed an out of bounds exploit on Aniyah Palace
- Temporarily removing Krovnik Farmland out of rotation while we work on a few bugs
- Fix for a bug that could lock a PC player's FOV at 60 until they respawn while in Ground War
- The "Stand Together" calling card (3 Wins in Team Deathmatch) was being awarded even though this calling card is earned by default. This has been adjusted to the "Redemption" calling card.
- The Daily Challenge for getting "10 Claymore Kills" was awarding the "One Shot" spray which is unlocked by default. This has been adjusted to the "Soft Serve" spray.
- Fix for an issue where the playlist filter would not switch game modes, even with multiple modes selected
- Adjusted the damage threshold for "Get X Kills while Injured" challenge to make it a bit easier to obtain
- Various out-of-map exploit fixes
- Fix for a few graphical errors that could occur on Ground War maps
- Infected: Fixed a bug where the Nuke effects and audio will interrupt and overlap the final killcam if called in after death of the final survivor
- Fixes to the Recent Players list appearing incorrectly on Xbox
- Fixed a bug that allowed players to capture the Hardpoint while in the hotel on St. Petrograd
- Adjusted the obituary to remove the oldest items first

- Fix for a bug that allowed player collision. This has been fixed
- Players can no longer cancel their recovery state when sliding, but will always incur the standard fire delay (visually the player will still respond)
- On Shipment, players are able to set Care Packages on spawn points, causing players to die instantly when spawning in on these points. This has been fixed.
- Fixed an issue where the Elite Xbox One controller had a slight bounce back with the analog sticks
- Fixed a bug that could give players invincibility
- Fix for some Officer Progression emblems not displaying the correct rarity
- Fixed an issue that would lock Operator missions despite having the correct Battle Pass Tier
- Fixed a bug where using the 'Stopping Power Rounds' Field Upgrade with an empty C4 slot would cause the C4 detonator to appear before reloading with the Stopping Power Rounds

- M4A1 Blueprint "OG" ADS position moved forward; the viewmodel or gun's position relative to the camera or player's eye is moved forward more, so it blocks less of the line of sight
- Changing the magazine capacity from 45 to 50 for the RAM-7 extended magazine.
- Increasing the bullet penetration of the MK2 Carbine
- Less horizontal recoil on the initial bullets of the FN Scar-17
