Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has just received the Shoothouse map as part of its first major update and… oh dear, oh dear oh dear. Players have been encountering a bug in the new release, which lest we forget is actually a re-release of an older map, which means that there are giant invisible walls across portions of the map: you can see other players, but fire and your bullets just pepper a wall you can't see.
The walls also knock back your drill charges, decoy grenades, and other bits of kit. Here's a video of the glitch:
A quick social media search shows up plenty of other examples, and this is clearly affecting a wide range of players.

It's not a great look for the fastest-selling entry in Call of Duty history, and Infinity Ward is yet to acknowledge the issue: though to be fair, given the pace of updates these games now receive, it's likely to be fixed quickly.
Giant invisible walls aside, Modern Warfare 2 seems to be going down well with players, and our own Morgan reckons it's the best entry in years. The wider Call of Duty picture is the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone 2 which brings us Infinity Ward's take on the battle royale, the excellent new DMZ mode, and the joys of proximity chat. The latter really feels like it has legs even if, at the moment, looting is a right old pain.
