- Call of Duty players are experiencing glitches and bugs, with some users reporting strange occurrences such as negative COD Points totals.
- A player posted a screenshot showing a surprising total of -2050 COD Points, leading to speculation about the cause of the debt.
- Potential reasons for negative COD Points include refunding a purchase made with points or a chargeback on the bank or credit card used for the purchase.
A Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 player surprisingly discovers that their COD Points total has suddenly gone negative, leaving them wondering what happened. With most live service games currently available including Call of Duty Warzone, the constant updates and additions of new content can make for a volatile environment, with glitches and bugs being a common occurrence for many players.
Call of Duty is a prime example of this, with players reporting all sorts of strange occurrences, sometimes more of an inconvenient visual issue, to things that can be a bit more game breaking. For example, Call of Duty Zombies players recently discovered a bug that allows them to kill each other, adding a PvP element that isn’t supposed to be active in this game mode. While not nearly as game breaking, another player has noticed a strange issue with their COD Points total, seemingly putting them in debt with Activision.
What to Expect From the Call of Duty Franchise in 2024
Call of Duty is bigger than ever before, and though it feels like MW3 has just come out, 2024 is almost here and so is the next phase of CoD.
Over on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 subreddit, a user named Freet-Treat posted a screenshot of their home screen on the game with a caption questioning why they’re suddenly in debt with COD Points, the premium currency Activision uses for its recent Call of Duty titles. The screenshot shows a surprising total of -2050, indicating that this user technically owes COD points for some reason.
Reactions to the surprising COD Points total left many feeling surprised or making puns at the expense of Freet-Treat. Other Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 fans attempted to explain the strange amount, indicating that something like this can happen when a player attempts to refund a purchase made using COD points. A user named Ianstrife had a similar situation happen to them when refunding a Call of Duty Bundle, where instead of deactivating the content of the bundle, the price of the set is simply deducted from the account instead. Users essentially keep the items from the bundle, but the money used to buy the COD points is refunded, and the points then match the decrease. Others mentioned there may be a chargeback on the Bank or Credit Card used to purchase the COD Points, which could also negatively impact the displayed value.
As annoying as bugs and glitches can be, Call of Duty has had a tumultuous history with cheating, even though the situation has drastically improved over the past couple of years thanks to Activision’s addition of its Ricochet system. Recently, however, players have seemingly been reporting a rise of cheating in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, with aimbotting and other hacks ruining matches. Even though over 23,000 accounts have been banned since mid-November, there continues to be a large number of issues relating to cheating.
