Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is one of the most issue-riddled entries we’ve seen. The game features a plethora of bugs and glitches, and the gameplay mechanics are faulty as well. Infinity Ward is fixing some problems but seemingly at a snail’s pace. While resolving issues is never a bad thing, going slowly causes new problems to arise. This is evident with an age-old bug regarding Platinum camo in Modern Warfare. One of the highest achievements in the game, Platinum puts players at a substantial disadvantage because of dramatic glare when aiming down sights.

Glare making Platinum camo useless

Platinum camo is an achievement for players who earn gold camo for each weapon in a specific class. This is particularly difficult in Modern Warfare due to the strange nature of the camo challenges. However, there is a large number of players who always earn Platinum or Diamond camo on their favorite weapon category.

Although, players were shocked to find that Platinum camo is completely ineffective half of the time. While it looks nice in lit areas, the glare coming off the weapon blinds players to the point they can’t see in front of them. A clip from Reddit user Itscranny showcases this bug perfectly.

As soon as the player in the clip aims down sights in the sun, a huge glare comes off the PP Bizon. This has been a problem since the game’s release, but Infinity Ward hasn’t addressed it. This is most likely because it doesn’t happen in every situation. However, that shouldn’t stop the studio from resolving the issue.

Players who grinded for Platinum camo are being rewarded with glare, which doesn’t sit well with anyone. Hopefully, Infinity Ward can increase their patch speed for this particular bug.
