Modern Warfare 2 Chopper Gun Glitch: How It Works

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has been out for a while now, and the response has been largely mixed. While newcomers are founding the game's multiplayer portion more accessible than previous entries, veteran fans are disappointed with some of the new gameplay and visual changes. 

While opinions may vary on the overall gameplay experience, it's hard to deny that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2's launch has been plagued with various bugs and optimization issues. Thanks to one such ridiculous Chopper Gun glitch, some MW 2 players have an unfair advantage on the battlefield.

In Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, the Chopper Gun is one of the many Killstreaks players can activate to gain some extra kills and turn the tide of the battle.

However, as mentioned previously, the Chopper Gun glitch is currently bugged in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and is giving players wall hacks.

As evident in the video posted by Reddit user Uncress, the Chopper Gun killstreak gets glitched on activation and stays for the whole game. Thanks to the glitch, the enemy locations are marked on the player's screen, making it extremely easy for them to target the other team's members.

As expected, fans are not pleased. This isn't the only issue currently plaguing Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Some players think the game's penalizing fast-paced combat in favor of campers. Others believe that Shotguns are overpowered and need nerfing. The game's clumsy UI has also been a topic of debate, with many hoping for a fix in a future update.
As of this writing, Activision hasn't acknowledged the issue, and there's no mention of it on Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2's Trello.  

However, Activision did deploy an update earlier today to fix some map exploits and bugs, so the glitch could have been removed.
