- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has removed boarded windows as a defense against zombies, making the game more challenging and intense. It’s not clear if this is intentional.
- The game initially faced criticism for bugs, server issues, and a lack of overall content, resulting in it being labeled as the worst-rated game in CoD history.
- A recent update aimed to fix these issues, but players have discovered that zombies can now pass through boarded windows, adding to the difficulty of the zombies mode.
When it comes to games with a zombie mode, boarded windows used to be a good defense against the undead, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 seems to have taken away this safeguard. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the latest installment in one of the most popular first-person shooter franchises. Developed by Sledgehammer Games, MW3 launched on November 10 and is a remake of the fan-favorite 2011 title developed by Infinity Ward.
Although Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was one of the most anticipated games of the year, it experienced quite a rocky start. From the absence of a gunfight mode in MW3 to frequent server disconnections and latency with the zombies servers, players are becoming quite frustrated with the lack of overall content and various bugs in the game. Similar to its predecessors, Modern Warfare 3 experienced impressive first-week sales, but fans were quick to voice their disappointment and frustration. Due to mixed reviews from fans and critics alike, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been crowned the worst-rated game in CoD history.
Recently, Activision and Sledgehammer Games released a major update for Modern Warfare 3, aiming to fix many of the issues, enhance the overall gameplay, and improve the zombies and multiplayer modes. Recently, a player took to r/CODZombies with their MW3 gameplay video, showing how zombies can now make their way through boarded windows, which used to be a solid line of defense. The user, Green_Dayzed, can be seen standing in front of two blocked windows, shooting at zombies while even more creep up and attack them from behind. Interestingly, the zombies don’t even have to break the windows in order to pass through.
This discovery by Green_Dayzed means that the zombies mode in MW3 has become more challenging, because no corner or building can protect gamers against the onslaught of the undead. However, many fans feel that the sparsely populated zombies map in Modern Warfare 3 has made the mode quite underwhelming, so players may not have to worry about being ambushed.
In the history of Call of Duty games with zombie modes, boarded windows have always kept zombies out, be it Black Ops 3, Black Ops Cold War, World at War, or Infinite Warfare. It is unclear whether this new change is a predetermined one or a glitch in Modern Warfare 3. Hardcore CoD gamers may be hoping they won’t have to experience any other surprises like this in the Zombies mode.
Set for a November 10, 2023 release, Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (2023) continues Captain Price’s story from the 2019 and 2022 games.
