Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Version 1.12 Patch Notes

While we can currently say goodbye to the limited time Infected game mode now that Vacant and other maps for the holiday season are arriving, this most recent Modern Warfare update does more than nix some landscapes. It’s another bug-fixing exercise, and we hear that the elusive Nikto is going to make his way to us too.

According to Infinity Ward on the community subreddit, the patch is going to include a bunch of fixes for things like the TURTLE error which has been prevalent recently, bugs where killstreaks were obstructing player views on the Aniyah Palace map, allowing higher visibility for accessories like watches, and giving you more options to sprint. Auto-move has also been added across different control schemes, so whether you’re playing with a gamepad or with a mouse and keyboard, you’ll have a button as an option. This version tops out between 10GB to 15GB across Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. We’ve reproduced the patch notes below for your benefit:
