CoD Modern Warfare 2: Why the ping system was removed

Infinity Ward have temporarily disabled the ping system.

Infinity Ward have temporarily disabled the ping system.

After the campaign, the multiplayer of Call of Duty Moden Warfare 2 also started last Friday, which, how could it be otherwise, comes with one or the other problem at the start. You can find out exactly what these are and how the servers are currently available in our live ticker. The ping system, with which you mark your opponent and which has now been temporarily deactivated due to a bug, also joins the series of minor and major shortcomings.

Reason for disabling the ping system: Due to a bug, the ping continued for the entire game even after the death of the marked player. Your opponent was punished with a kind of wallhack that makes him visible to you at all times.

Just yesterday, the fine-tuning of the weapon attachments was removed from the game after the first-person shooter regularly crashed with five equipped extensions. Tip: If you still have tuned attachments equipped, then you must deselect the weapon and add it to your loadout again.

When the multiplayer was released, there were also crashes when players wanted to form a group to gamble comfortably. Infinity Ward has already fixed this flaw via update:
