You can play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 since 6 a.m. With a new release, all sorts of bugs are to be expected. However, the multiplayer spawns when CoD was released are almost legendary. And there is currently a game-breaking bug in MW3 that can abruptly end your round.
What kind of bug is it? The bug in question can help end your rounds early. It ensures that players in Hardpoint mode all appear at the same spawn point in multiplayer on the Quarry map.
What is Hardpoint?
Hardpoint is a multiplayer mode from many CoD games. Here you have to take a point and hold it with your team. Older points eventually disappear and new ones are generated. So you are always on the move.
In CoD: MW3 the mode is called Position in German.
This in turn ensures that the players with the fastest reaction and/or the best aim have the chance to eliminate most of their opponents within a few seconds. The players defeated in this way have no choice but to re-queue for a map. Of course, hoping not to end up on Quarry again.
Due to the carnage resulting from the bug, the map can be difficult for more sensitive players: the match starts and instead of the expected game, you are caught in a loud storm of shots, blood splatters and falling bodies. Anyone who plays CoD: MW3 will know what they’re getting into with a shooter, but such a massacre comes as a surprise.
Here is an excerpt of what the bloodbath might look like – posted by an X.com user:

Does the bug also have advantages? The bug actually brings advantages – yes. Because of the bug you can collect a lot of experience points in a very short time. If you are one of the players mentioned above with quick reactions and/or good aim.
Then the game gives you all of your potential kills on a silver platter and all you have to do is pull the trigger. This in turn helps you climb to higher ranks more quickly and thus receive more items and prestige.
Is Activision already working on a fix? In all probability yes. Spawn bugs in particular destroy the fun of gaming for many players. In addition, you don’t want to eliminate your opponents so quickly and collect the corresponding experience points. This should happen gradually and as the season progresses.
In the past, Activision has always shown nimble fingers and quick fixes when it comes to exactly these types of bugs. There is no reason to think that this will be any different. The predecessor CoD: MW2, for example, was a playground for trick shotters when it was released. At that time, the developers quickly deactivated the weapon attachments responsible for the glitch.
According to a tweet from @CODUpdates on X.com (formerly Twitter), the affected map has now been removed from Hardpoint’s rotation. The Rundown and Scrapyard maps have also been disabled for the time being.
