Another minor update aimed at taking care of bugs in Call of Duty was deployed today, taking effect in both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.

Infinity Ward and Raven Software have been hard at work patching some pesky bugs that have cropped up in the CoD world over the past few weeks, and the latest update features even more fixes in an additional patch.

While many of the fixes were minor or pertaining to menus and icons, the update also included a fix for crashing problems that were occurring in Plunder, the popular Warzone 2 mode which just made its return last week.

A solid quality-of-life change also came with the update. Players will now be able to preview Tracer rounds when looking at bundles in the in-game store. Tracer bundles are usually 2,400 CoD Points, and Tracer rounds add a special effect to bullets fired by specific blueprint weapons.

The general vibe around CoD has been more negative than usual over the past few weeks, mainly surrounding a lackluster season three launch last month. But that hasn’t stopped Activision from boasting big microtransaction sales numbers.

The next substantial content update for MW2 and Warzone 2 is likely coming in a couple of weeks in the “Season Three Reloaded” update, likely due to hit sometime in the middle of May. The estimated arrival for the update is May 17.
