Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is out for most platforms, gaining positive reception. The sequel to 2018’s Modern Warfare and reboot of 2008’s game of the same name, the title’s bringing back some of the fan-favourite characters.
However, the game had some minor hiccups during its launch. With Activision falling under scrutiny after making crossplay permanent for PC and Xbox, and after disclosing PlayStation-exclusive rewards, it seems that is the least of the developer’s worries.
In an announcement posted by Infinity Ward’s official Twitter account, the studio said that they have turned off the weapon attachment tuning feature. The feature causes multiple game crashes, which prompted the developer to investigate the issue.
We are disabling attachment tuning until further notice to investigate crashes for users with 5 attachments tuned. If you currently have a tuned attachment equipped, you will need to unequip and reequip it to use your loadout.

“We are disabling attachment tuning until further notice to investigate crashes for users with 5 attachments tuned,” read the Tweet. “If you currently have a tuned attachment equipped, you will need to unequip and reequip it to use your loadout.”
Infinity Ward has not given a timeframe for when the bug will get fixed. This is the second major bug the game has post-launch. Earlier, players discovered that a bug allowed players to mark their enemies during the kill cam. The bug turned the feature into an unintentional wallhack. Infinity Ward quietly took down the feature to fix it.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, the sequel to the reboot, is out for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
