Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Update Fixes Exploits, Adds Hardcore Kill Confirmed
A new update for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has made lots of small changes to the multiplayer and zombie modes. For multiplayer the Volk weapon has had its ranged damage reduced, with more recoil and a larger spread from the hip. Hardcore Kill Confirmed has been added to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while Hardcore Defender has been removed. Infected is again available on all platforms.
Zombies weapon rank upgrades have a splash image now, and exploits have been fixed. Solo games will no longer end when The Hoff is active.
The full list of fixes posted to Reddit by Infinity Ward can be found in the patch notes below, which also includes a lengthy list of PC-only fixes.
