Fast-paced action and quick-fire gunfights have often been the hallmarks of many CoD installments, but it seems that MW2 has become the opposite as the game’s slow pace has fans mourning the loss of aggressive gameplay.

Gone are the days when players could simply rush head long into enemy ranks with guns ablaze. Now, it seems that the current franchise entry rewards those that are patient and calculating, much to the chagrin of these high-stakes players. The developer’s preference for this turtle-like combat element was further evidenced by the most recent batch of patch notes that were provided.

The latest fix in question was brought to the attention of the community by an observant and concerned Reddit user. The post that they created and shared through the Modern Warfare 2 subreddit contained an image that displayed the following note: “Fixed an issue with Tuning that allowed Sprint to Fire Speeds to be increased beyond intended levels.”

Another bullet point would then follow the previous statement, which said that “this fix also considerably decreases the negative impact of tuning against Sprint to Fire Speed.” It’s currently unclear why Infinity Ward and Raven Software decided to focus on lessening the effectivity of Sprint to Fire Speed. However, it’s safe to say that a handful of players aren’t exactly happy with these changes.

One frustrated commenter couldn’t help but mention that these “geriatric sentinel game devs” have no clue and that “no one wants to play like statues that die the second you start sprinting.” Another user, on the other hand, was simply confused at this decision since “there’s clearly a divide in players” that want to ‘sentinel’ and rush.

Sadly, MW2’s slow pace may be the last thing on the embattled developers’ minds as they’re currently also faced with having to solve numerous in-game issues, such as its dwindling player count and decreasing Twitch viewership. Hopefully, they do find the time to do so at some point even if the next 2023 CoD installment is arriving soon.
