Infinity Ward has pulled a Modern Warfare playlist for being too generous with XP

Infinity Ward has removed the Giant Infection playlist from Modern Warfare, for being too generous with XP. They say they're working on a fix now.


Giant Infection was added in the most recent content update, along with a new map, the addition of Shoot House to another playlist, and a range of general fixes. The mode was a version of Infected played on the Ground War maps (thanks, VG247.) It appears to have been a little glitched; it was only added a few days ago, but players have already managed to get an exorbitant amount of XP from the mode. One player even claimed on Reddit that almost 50 people managed to get over 80k XP in various games, with others saying you could just hide during the games and still progress through several levels.

Infinity Ward hasn't clarified when Giant Infection will come back, but we'll keep you posted.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
