- The Terminal map in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has a new glitch that players are exploiting to gain an unfair advantage.
- Players have discovered hidden secrets and nuances on the Terminal map, but this glitch is negatively impacting multiplayer matches.
- The glitch allows players to access the roof of the Terminal map, giving them an advantageous position and making it difficult for others to hit them.
While playing on the Terminal map, one Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 player is the victim of a glitch that some are abusing to get an unfair advantage over others. The iconic Call of Duty multiplayer map is now in the spotlight following a recent update to Modern Warfare 3, which also arrived with the Experimental playlist and Terminal 24/7 playlist options. Experimental adds in a colored outline to all operators to further make them standout within the environment, potentially a test for countering harder to-see skins like the much maligned Gaia operator cosmetic.
As fans pour over the Terminal map, players have begun to discover plenty of hidden secrets and nuances. For example, players have already discovered a secret inside the gift shop, which features a travel brochure for the Valderas museum, a map based on the Getty Center in California and was removed from Modern Warfare 2 and eventually added back during Season 2. Unfortunately, not every discovery on the Terminal map has been a positive one, as a new glitch is starting to plague multiplayer matches within the Terminal 24/7 playlist.
In a new post that is gaining traction on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 subReddit, it appears that players have discovered a creative way to gain access to the roof on the Terminal map. A short clip from a user named Gionta1222 showcases what exactly is going on as they’re running around on the runway, they’re suddenly taken out by an enemy nowhere to be found. The killcam reveals what happened, as the assailant is perched on top of the Terminal roof, with great views of most of the map and difficult to be hit by legitimate means.
Most comments were in agreement that while this can be countered by weapons like a sniper rifle as well as good aim, it remains a problem and should be patched out completely. Certain game modes, especially ones with capture style objectives like Headquarters or Domination, can really be negatively impacted as a player utilizing this glitch can cause chaos for the enemy team. A debate also broke out between those who would rather keep this in for the fun factor and others who want it removed because it breaks the spirit of skilled competition.
While some don’t consider this a true glitch, it is hardly the first time that the Call of Duty franchise has had issues with its maps. In recent years, the biggest issue seems to have been players figuring out how to get outside the normal map boundaries, typically going under parts of the map to kill players with no danger of retaliation Call of Duty Warzone has seen plenty of map glitches, including one last year on Caldera that let players essentially become fully invisible to opposing players by taking advantage of a deployable shield and specific map geometry.
