Glitches That Aren't Glitches - Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Glitches
There are a few gameplay interactions that many players consider to be glitches, but aren't. Some of them have been patched, and others have not.
OMA Tubing is one such 'glitch'. OMA Tubing is when a player uses a class with One Man Army, an assault rifle with grenade launcher attachment, and often Danger Close. Currently, using One Man Army to switch to the class you're already using will refill all of your ammunition, including grenades. This allows you, effectively, infinite ammo. However, the switch time leaves you defenseless, and using grenades is harder than most people make it out to be. Currently, Infinity Ward claims to be working on a fix for the situation, but no word on what that fix is has been released.
Care Package Knifing is another of those glitches. Originally, when you got the Care Package, Senty Gun, or Emergency Airdrop killstreak, you would get a smoke marker to throw down to call it in. In order to allow you to move to safety to call in your box, the care package grenade allowed you to move somewhat faster than normal. However, you could still knife with the grenade out, as a means of self-defense. Unfortunately, coupled with Marathon, Lightweight, and Commando, that movement speed increase turned you into a high-speed short-range-teleporting knife-wielding engine of death. Fortunately, Infinity Ward patched this, so you no longer get a movement speed boost with the grenade out.
Boosting is not a glitch, but it IS unfairly gaining an advantage over your opponents. Boosting involves getting a friend on the other team, heading to a secluded corner of the map, and farming challenges. Often players will use tactical insertions to farm headshots, sitrep equipment kills, and killstreak rewards. Fortunately most boosters are flat-out bad at the game and are easy and fun to hunt down while playing normally. Nothing feels quite as good as finding and killing a booster on his 23rd kill before a nuke.
Modded Controllers are also not technically hacks. Instead, they're controllers that have chips in them to reprogram the buttons. Most often they are used to make semi-automatic weapons, such as the FAL assault rifle or the pistol secondary weapons, automatic. Often accompanying these rapid fire button presses is recoil correction, making the guns abnormally accurate.
