A group of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 players have broken the game’s movement system and their latest creation is something they call the “G Walk”. The cheat looks very frustrating to play, which has sparked some controversy within the gaming community over the new exploit.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 released last month on nearly every platform and quickly became one of the biggest games of the year. And just this month the game is highly anticipated Warzone 2.0 the spin-off mode launched to similar praise and hype. Sure, the campaign looks bad and filled with terrible moments, like a section where players point their guns at an unarmed person to “defuse” the situation, but the online portion of this year’s edition of the annual Activision shooter seems to be a hit with fans. And a group of players use Modern Warfare IIMotion controls to create impressive, frightening and very fast techniques to raise the stakes in competition.
Spotted by Jake Lucky on Twitter, Modern Warfare II clan “Euphoria” is breaking the game right now. Their latest creation, which they call “G Walking”, turns normally human soldiers into Call of Duty wild, fast goblins that hop and crawl around maps like the kids who drank way too much sugar on Halloween night. As you’d expect, moving so quickly in such a weird stance makes it difficult for other players to shoot those out-of-control monsters. (As of now, the group has yet to share publicly how to pull off this new move.)
And just as quickly as the goblins themselves, players began to react to videos of Euphoria G Walking members. Some find it funny, others find it scary. But many are annoyed with what Euphoria does, saying it ruins matches and makes it harder for casual gamers to skip a few hours and play. The members of Euphoria mostly laughed at the complaints – and in their defense, they are just using the controls and mechanics that exist in the game to do this wild shit. If anything, developers Infinity Ward need to fix these out-of-game exploits if the studio doesn’t want this to become the new meta.
Breakup Call of Duty games are nothing new to gamers. Some modern warfare (2019) vets may remember the popular slide cancel exploit that was discovered in this game and used in the original war zone. This movement has also returned to Warzone 2.0 and is already used by many online players.
I personally remember playing the original MW2 back to 2009 and running around doing Javelin’s annoying suicide glitch that would kill everyone around you when you die. It was very annoying and was quickly fixed from the game. And before all this nonsense, I remember falling in weird places on Crash in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 using janky level geometry and tricky jumps. If anything, stuff like G Walking and the bands other movement feat— superman jumping– is just tradition at this point.
