Arguably, for the first time since releasing Modern Warfare 3, Sledgehammer's latest swing hasn't made the impact it had hoped for. Instead, the update has left an ugly hole in the wall of its stellar Call of Duty title.

Season 3 Reloaded landed with a lot of promise, boasting Mastery Camos to grind and more quirky maps. The update also allowed some pesky bugs to slip through the net, and like a parasite, they've eaten away at the core experience. Now, the devs have finally addressed the bugs and revealed patches are on the way.

MW3 devs pledge to release imminent fix for Season 3 bugs


The bugs released in Season 3 Reloaded are so damaging that players are claiming that they have "completely ruined the game." So, it's no surprise that the devs have wanted to act quickly.

One week after the update, Sledgehammer Games has now prepared a hotfix for the reload bug, which will arrive on May 8. This bug prevented players from reloading while using Auto Tac Sprint, nullifying the Ordinance Gloves completely and becoming increasingly annoying for those who use SMGs.

The fix will also address a Warzone-only problem which resulted in the reload animation not working when near ground loot, leaving players picking up random items rather than boosting their mag count.

Season 3 did break a wealth more, and no one's sure when the developers plan on addressing the indifferent audio, lag spikes, grenade animations, and the movement.
