‘Modern Warfare 2’ “God Mode” exploiters can be killed with fire

Several players have called on Infinity Ward to remove the Riot Shield until the bug can be patched

Players have discovered a way to combat people exploiting the “God Mode” bug in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Discovered shortly after Modern Warfare 2 was released last week (October 28), the “God Mode” bug sees players become seemingly invincible during multiplayer matches

To activate the bug, players have to survive a barrage of enemy missiles from a VTOL jet while carrying a riot shield. After that, they become practically invincible for the rest of the match. This has obviously caused a lot of complaints on social media, with those exploiting the bug receiving a massively unfair advantage.


However, several players are now reporting that “God Mode” cheats can be taken out using fire.

“Fire is the only way to kill them. Molotovs or thermite work,” said COD Twitter account Modern Warzone, with several users on Reddit backing up their findings.

It comes as several players have called on Infinity Ward to remove the Riot Shield until the bug can be patched.

Since the launch of Modern Warfare, players have discovered several bugs within the game. Earlier this week, Infinity Ward disabled attachment tuning while it worked on a fix for a glitch that caused the game to crash.

And over the weekend, Infinity Ward also quietly disabled Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2‘s ping system in order to combat “wallhack” cheaters.


Following the launch of the game last week, players discovered that if you pinged an enemy during the death screen transition, the marker remained for the rest of the game. The ping system is currently out of action, though Infinity Ward has yet to officially address the issue or announce when it will be restored.

In a four-star review, NME said: “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a top-notch shooter with a fun campaign and solid multiplayer offering. The shootouts are sublime and it feels great to play. If you’re going to pick up one multiplayer game this year, there’s a good argument that it should be this one.”

In other news, PlayStation has confirmed that the PSVR2 will launch early next year, with pre-orders going live in a few weeks.
