Can you believe it – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s been out for over five months now. Imagine if a message were to appear telling you to reset all your multiplayer progress since then in order to play a match.
But that’s exactly what some players were shown last night, as the latest patch introduced more than Infinity Ward bargained for.
The error message, which popped up for some people after the update, told users their data was “corrupt or didn’t download properly” and they’d have to reset their rank and unlocks to fix it. In other words, losing all the loadout options, killstreaks, field upgrades and perks they’d achieved through hard grinding since launch. Nightmare fuel.
