Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1.09 Update Notes

by Ginny Woo

Hot on the heels of Status Savannah, Infinity Ward has now officially pushed through some updates to do with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. There was a PC patch that went out last week which was aimed at solving long-running graphics issues, but now the Modern Warfare 1.09 update has been rolled out to all platforms that the game is available on. Check out our notes on this update. 

Modern Warfare 1.09 Update Notes

The Modern Warfare 1.09 update has a number of fixes across the board which we reckon are considerably minor. We’re talking minor spelling corrections, a fix for issues where players were having issues seeing objectives, and also a fix for when Ground War players would see filter interference even after spawning. 

There have been some specific fixes for challenges in the game, and for missions affecting Officer progression for those who were wondering why their progress may have been hampered. We’re also looking at weapon changes to the AUG, the 725, and the Model 680 in particular. These changes have tweaked damage at different ranges across all three weapons, whether it’s reductions or increases when it comes to certain aspects of handling. We’ve included the full patch notes below from Infinity Ward as acquired from the community subreddit.
