Details this afternoon have emerged regarding title update number 8 on Modern Warfare 3. Minor issues and tweaks have been made concerning lag compensation, host advantage, and faster youtube uploads. This TU8 will be available multiplatform as soon a Sony clears the patch for the PS3. Full details will be listed below. As of now this update is only available on the Xbox 360.
“Networking enhancements, Theater improvements and fixes, Further improvements to “Host Disadvantage” / “Lag Comp”, Increased speed of YouTube uploads from 32k to 256k, Nerf to all Akimbo weapons (reduced fire rate), Shotgun re-balance (Slight nerf to Striker, slight buff to all other shotguns), Fix that prevents some users from not receiving their prestige token after prestiging, fix stat bug that retains “games played” stat across prestiges.”
Considering the MW3 content season just kicked off, a few of these changes will be greatly appreciated by a thriving community.
