Those who tend to play a lot of Modern Warfare 2 have undoubtedly come across someone using the infuriating care package glitch… at least if you’re on the 360 where the problem has still not been corrected despite PC and PS3 users already having non-cheating fun.
Thankfully, the patch is not too far away, as confirmed by Robert Bowling on Twitter. The patch is currently in the hands of Microsoft certification, and will go live when they get done giving it a run through, which is of course within an unspecified timeframe.
Beyond the care package cheat, other adjustments are being made:
1. Care Package, Emergency Airdrop, and Sentry Gun marker grenades sprint speed normalized.
2. Sentry Guns: Improved placement detection
3. Bling using Akimbo and FMJ combination now has same range and damage as non-Bling Model 1887s.
4. Fixes to prevent XP hacks
Hopefully this hits sooner rather than later, as the cheating has become far too commonplace to even report those who obviously can’t get ahead without abusing the system.
