A Weird Glitch Exposed Impressive Third-Person View in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Remember team tactical third-person mode from Modern Warfare 2 (2009)? I’m sure you do, as a lot of loyal COD players have fond memories of it. There hasn’t been a lot of hype around such a mode coming to today’s Modern Warfare reboot, but a weird glitch shown off by Reddit user Tkade14 shows us that it’s not only a feasible way to play, but it could be a very easy thing for Activision and Infinity Ward to make happen.

If you’re not aware, there is a third-person element to Modern Warfare, however, it’s only when you’re bleeding out in certain game modes. Once you go down, you get a third-person view until you’re either revived or bleed out. If you’re revived, the game is supposed to throw you back into the normal first-person view. In this particular case, however, it didn’t happen, and the player was able to run around for nearly a minute, knifing the hell out of people on the way.

Tkade14 was playing in survival mode – a co-op horde mode that’s exclusive to PlayStation 4 until October – when the glitch occurred. It’s the first time we’ve seen such a glitch, and so far, there’s no word of it being replicated in anyway. In fact, it’s quite unfair for anyone else playing in first-person mode, but if a third-person mode was introduced – like the one we used to have – then things would balance out nicely. What’s actually more interesting than the glitch itself is how smooth and clean the gameplay was. We’ve seen third-person glitches or mods in FPS games before, and they never look this good.

So, the question now is: Is Infinity Ward secretly planning to launch a third-person mode or is this just a really strange glitch that just coincidentally looks about as good as it possibly could?
