Infinity Ward Provides A List of Upcoming Improvements for Ghosts
We got a great sign from Infinity Ward today in the general discussions section of the Call of Duty forums. One of the developers who goes by the name of teanah has provided us with a detailed list of upcoming improvements that Ghosts players can expect in the near future. We’ll give you an inside look at key features that they plan on adding or updating below.
The problems or issues with the spawns is admittedly one of the most discussed topics in the Ghosts community. Infinity Ward wants to make us aware that they are doing everything they can to combat these bugs and bring an end to any problems that the current spawning system contains. The updates to the spawns will come from the extensive amount of data that has been collected about the last five weeks of gameplay. The updated system, although not live yet, is being hard-tested by developers and designers to ensure its perfection. They promise to give us updates about its progress.

Hacking and Cheating Improvements
It’s no surprise that there are still problems in the area of hackers and cheaters in Call of Duty: Ghosts because nearly every game recently released on the Xbox and PlayStation platform has experienced their fair share of individuals who enjoy ruining the games experience for others. The great news is that Infinity Ward promises to take full action on cheaters and hackers by adhering to their Code of Conduct that was released a few weeks ago. The amount of seriousness to this issue can be seen with their dedicated Online Security department that has been hired for this very purpose. They will be actively banning cheaters as well as cleaning up the leaderboard problems and correcting hacked stats. Along with the active hunt for hackers they are also working on covering up any exploits as well as releasing patches to block any of the current hacks that have been floating around on the black market.
If you spot an obvious hacker or suspect any foul play, Infinity Ward recommends that you refer the issue to the Activision Support staff by contacting them online at this link or through their twitter @ATVIAssist.
The rest of the improvements that may effect your gameplay are below:
Squad Points: We are making a change to the amount of Squad Points your soldiers earn. For ranks 1 – 5, each rank up will now give you 5 squad points (increased from the usual 2 squad points). So each Squad Member that you take to level 5, you’ll get 25 squad points.
Operations: We are looking at large, potential changes for Operations. For instance, we are looking into increasing XP rewards for completing operations. More info to come.
Infected: We are in the process of adding new loadouts to the Infected playlist. This is currently being tested internally, so be sure to look out for more variety in the future!
New game mode: We are in the process of adding a new Heavy Duty playlist that increases player health. We would love to hear your feedback on this new mode, so make sure to try it out.
