Call of Duty Warzone’s latest patch targets vehicle exploits
Latest update also makes smoke challenges easier
Infinity Ward has rolled out a new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone patch.
Among other features, the studio says the latest update includes a fix designed to help tackle vehicle exploits.
It’s unclear which exploits the patch targets, but a Warzone update released on Tuesday disabled helicopters, which were reportedly being used to abuse out of bounds glitches.
Update, May 8: The latest Warzone update reintroduces helicopters and adds a new Battle Royale playlist called Stimulus Solos, while Modern Warfare gets Shipment 10v10 and 3v3 Gunfight Knives Only.

Activision announced on Tuesday that Call of Duty: Warzone has attracted over 60 million players since releasing on March 10, while 2019’s Modern Warfare has sold more copies and has more players “than any prior Call of Duty title at this point after its release”.
The publisher also said the next premium Call of Duty game, which is expected to be a Black Ops title from Treyarch, “already looks great and remains on track for release later this year”.
