Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 developer Sledgehammer Games reveals that changes have been made to the game’s Quick Play filter and weapon animations to help players have a better multiplayer experience. These are the first quality-of-life changes for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in 2024, but many more will be made as Season 2 approaches next month.
Nearly a month has passed since the launch of Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 in December 2023. The CODMAS event came to an end on January 3, and the Vortex event is now live with Zombies-themed Modern Warfare 3 maps until January 17. While fans await news of Modern Warfare 3’s next major update and Season 2, Sledgehammer Games introduces some quality-of-life changes that could make multiplayer better for fans in Season 1.

On January 4, the official Sledgehammer Games Twitter account confirmed that two changes have been made to the Quick Play filter and weapon animations in a quality-of-life update for Modern Warfare 3. Firstly, Modern Warfare 3’s Gun Game mode is now available to select in the Quick Play filter. This means that players can now select Gun Game as a preferred mode in Quick Play, allowing them to play this particular mode more frequently. Other Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer modes that may be selected alongside Gun Game include Free-for-All, Team Deathmatch, Domination, Search and Destroy, Kill Confirmed, Hardpoint, and Control. The second change involves weapon check animations, which will no longer play upon respawn in small map playlists. This change was made to reduce the delay between respawning and readying a weapon, allowing players to quickly get into a gunfight on small maps like Rush or Shipment.
