Modern Warfare 1.08 Update | Highlights

Modern Warfare 1.08

General stability fixes

The Modern Warfare 1.08 update implements yet more fixes that should hopefully improve stability and prevent crashes across all modes and all platforms. If you’ve been struggling with performance issues, even after the previous 1.07 update, hopefully this will now cure them completely.

ALSO: Hideo Kojima: Death Stranding reviews are mixed because it’s ‘difficult to understand’

Footstep noise changes

Footsteps have been adjusted even further with the Modern Warfare 1.08 update. When moving in ADS or crouch, player footsteps will be locked to a walking volume. What’s more, the speed in which “walking volume” remains active has been increased, meaning you can move that bit faster while remaining quiet.


This map has now had spawns tuned for Team Deathmatch and Domination modes. In addition to this, for Domination, the flags have been adjusted so that B is now near the buses instead of the central fountain.
