Friend or foe? That was the dilemma facing Modern Warfare players last week thanks to an exploit which allowed players to change the colour of clan tags to a barely-visible black, enemy red, or even “friendly” blue colour. This meant a supposed teammate could turn around to shoot you mid-match, which was a little game-breaking, to say the least. Just take a peep at the video evidence below.
In a reply to the Reddit post highlighting the issue, Infinity Ward production director Paul Haile explained that “colorised names is not intended to be something players can do”, and promised Infinity Ward would fix the problem. In yesterday’s patch, a fix for regiment tags was rolled out, and by all accounts it’s now impossible to change your clan tag’s colour.
But we’re not quite out of the woods yet, as some players have reported the number three is now appearing before their tag names, with some having their entire tag replaced by “3 3”. Whoops.
