Modern Warfare 2 'care package' patch submitted to Microsoft certification

Considering the Xbox 360 version sold the most copy’s of Modern Warfare 2, it comes as a bit of a shock to us that the “care package patch” has already released on PS3 and PC and is just now being submitted to Microsoft for certification.  Infinity Ward’s community man Robert Bowling also seems surprised by the late patch saying “Not too much longer before it’s a thing of the past.”

The patch is set to fix the following

  • Care Package, Emergency Airdrop, and Sentry Gun marker grenades sprint speed normalized.
  • Fix for “infinite care package” exploit.
  • Sentry Guns: Improved placement detection, preventing cases of Sentry Guns inside geometry.
  • Model 1887: Bling using Akimbo and FMJ combination now has same range and damage as non-Bling Model 1887s.
  • Fixes to prevent various XP hacks.
