Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 first Community Update is now live on all platforms. The patch brings a ton of fixes and improvements, while also making changes to some playlists. PC benchmark is now more accurate as its map has been changed to give a more accurate reading of the frame rate.

The patch addresses a plethora of performance issues like frame rate drops, freezing, lag, and stuttering issues; overall performance also saw significant improvements. The third-person Moshpit playlist can now be played on the Breenbergh Hotel map.

You can read about the rest of the changes below.

General Updates
  • We’ve addressed a number of crashes affecting players across all platforms including the bug that caused certain players partied-up in game to crash when matchmaking. Last night’s update should provide additional stability in terms of crashing. We will continue to monitor live issue reports and provide resolutions as soon as we are able.
PC
  • A recent NVIDIA hotfix addressed some critical issues. Please make sure you are running the game on drivers 526.61. 
  • Be sure to follow our friends at Beenox for additional updates for MW2 on PC.
Weapons
  • We are actively collecting weapon performance/usage data and will provide detailed updates on weapon-balancing with the launch of Season 01. 
  • Last week we disabled the attachment tuning feature due to an issue affecting players with 4 or more tuned attachments equipped at once. We re-enabled attachment tuning in last night’s update so players should not encounter further issues equipping attachments on a weapon.
Multiplayer
  • Enemy or live ping will remain disabled in multiplayer until a fix is implemented with the launch of Season 01. This is due to a bug where ping remained on some players after death. KBM players are currently still able to danger ping. 
  • The player icon on the minimap will no longer disappear after a player is revived in certain modes.
Maps/Playlists
  • There are no significant map changes, but we have patched various exploits and geometry bugs in the days since launch. We’ll continue to address small fixes through daily updates. 
UI/UX
  • We continue to refine our UI and will have more details in the Season 01 launch notes. 
  • We are aware of the following issues and fixes are in the works
    • Riot shield provides invincibility against chopper gunner and VTOL
    • DDOS Field upgrade availability bug
    • A bug affecting helicopter height, which allows them to leave the map in some instances
