Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2‘s new attachment tuning feature has been turned off due to reports that it’s causing game crashes.
In an announcement posted by Infinity Ward‘s official Twitter account, the studio said it had temporarily deactivated the feature while it investigates the issues.
“We are disabling attachment tuning until further notice to investigate crashes for users with five attachments tuned,” the statement reads.
“If you currently have a tuned attachment equipped, you will need to unequip and re-equip it to use your loadout.”
Attachment tuning is a new feature that was added to Modern Warfare 2.
It’s part of the Gunsmith system, which has been in previous Call of Duty games and allows players to add attachments to their guns, including scopes, magazines, muzzles, grips and stocks.
After levelling a weapon up to its maximum rank, Modern Warfare 2 players will now unlock the attachment tuning feature.
This lets players adjust sliders which impact two specific stats for the weapon. By increasing the speed players can bring up their sights, for example, they may decrease the time it takes to fire after sprinting.
Players can equip up to five attachments on their weapon at any time, but it appears that if all five attachments have been tuned it’s been causing crashes.
This is the issue that Infinity Ward is trying to investigate, and why it’s decided to deactivate the tuning feature until it can figure out the cause of the bug.
Over the weekend, Infinity Ward removed another feature due to a glitch that made it possible to permanently track players.
The game’s ping system was quietly disabled after players discovered it could be used to track enemy players through walls for entire matches.
Xbox players have to go to their Xbox system settings to disable crossplay on a console level, while PC owners have no way to remove it.
