Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II: This is why the ping system doesn’t work in multiplayer

Activision Blizzard: Phil Spencer pleased with acquisition progress

Shortly after release, the ping system was disabled in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II has been playable on the available platforms Xbox, PlayStation and PC since Friday. After the early access of the campaign, shooter friends can now also jump into multiplayer or play the first missions cooperatively in spec ops.

In the multiplayer of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, however, players have to do without a function. the ping.

It is actually possible to use it to mark dangers, but the ping system in the game was deactivated over the weekend.

And the reason is not pretty: the ping is buggy because it can be abused as a wallhack.

So it was possible to mark the opponent in the killcam who had eliminated you.

As can be seen in the video below, the person then receives a red mark over their head. However, this remains unintentionally visible for the rest of the match, which is tantamount to a wallhack, since you always know where an enemy is.

It is currently not known when Infinity Ward will fix the problem and enable ping again.

Huge Bug: You can ping an enemy during the death screen and the ping lasts for the whole game, essentially giving you wallhacks on that one player for the remainder of the game. from Modern Warfare II
