MW2 javelin patch imminent on PS3/360

Already in place on PC.

Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has said that a fix for the Javelin exploit in Modern Warfare 2 is imminent on both PS3 and Xbox 360 and already in place on PC.

"#MW2 on PS3 just got update 1.05 which includes some improvements to matchmaking. Patch 1.06 is still coming down the pipeline," Bowling tweeted on Saturday.

"PC has the Javelin update already and is constantly getting matchmaking tweaks," he added a few minutes later.

"1.06 is the Javelin fix, care package glitch fix, and addresses areas where players could get into geo. Like rocks on Afghan," he continued.

"For those playing #MW2 on Xbox 360. The same fixes that are in 1.06 are coming to you, it's currently in Microsoft cert. Out of my hands."

The Javelin glitch causes players to explode while holding the Javelin weapon, as witnessed in this Break.com video.

The benefit (I'm still playing Viva Pinata so have no idea if this is accurate) appears to be that you can score more points suicide-bombing people in this situation than you lose by dying.

As a result Xbox Live has been handing out temporary bans to people who abuse it, although Bowling also tweeted that "PSN chose to not take any action against glitchers."
