Call of Duty Modern Warfare-2

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare suffers from major pop-ins and cut-scene stutters on the PC

It appears that the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare suffers from some technical/visual issues. As we’ve already reported, the game requires a constant Internet connection even for its single-player mode. Not only that, but the game suffers from major pop-in and cutscene stutters issues.

Below you can find a video showcasing the awful pop-in issues. This video footage was captured with all of the graphics settings enabled. As such, PC gamers will have to deal with these pop-ins and there is no way to fix them (at least for now).

Moreover, there are some awful stutters during the briefing cut-scenes. These cut-scenes are right before a mission starts (they are in video format and not real-time). As a result of these stutters, the game’s audio desynchronizes, thus making the cut-scenes feel really awkward. Now the good news here is that the in-game cut-scenes work perfectly fine.

Once you notice them, the pop-in issues can be really distracting. Therefore, we seriously hope that Infinity Ward and Beenox will be able to address these issues soon.
