It looks like we’re getting a new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update soon.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players have been waiting for a big update since launch woes and balance problems became apparent. This week might actually be it, according to developer Infinity Ward.
The studio’s community manager, Ashton Williams, posted a Tweet confirming that a new update is coming in “the next few days” that will feature stability fixes, and several balance tweaks, including footsteps sounds and calymores.
Pending any unexpected issues, we’ve got an update rolling out over the next few days that improves stability across all platforms, fixes bugs, weapon tuning, footsteps, claymores, and more.

Although we obviously do not yet have a full change log, multiplayer co-design director Joe Cecot has been dropping hints on Twitter over the past few days in interactions with followers.
As Cecot notes, this will be the second post-launch balance pass for footstep sounds to receive in Modern Warfare, though many would argue the first one had a negligible impact.
A couple more things in our sights in addition to the items in the below tweet:
– claymore balance
– EOD adjustments
– second round of footstep tuning
And more! https://t.co/n6aFgMp3m4

Hopefully, this next patch will deliver, as opinion is starting to turn on the game just days after launch thanks to a stagnant meta and numerous bugs. Assuming all goes well, the update will likely drop Friday or Saturday.
