COD4 patch hugs snipers

Lag and text fixes, too.

Infinity Ward has rolled out a new patch for the PC version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

The biggest change that community members seem to be a little miffed about is improved accuracy when using sniper rifles. Apparently those with automatic machine guns and pistols are unevenly matched against them at range, now. Oh.

It also adds anti-lag features when you load a map, and catches files missing the client like the desert missed the rain, maybe.

Elsewhere those of you chatting should no longer be cut out between multiplayer rounds, and all previous fixes are included in the patch.

We're still waiting to hear from Activision as to when 360 and PS3 soldiers can expect it, and we will let you know as soon as we do.

Meanwhile you should pop over to our Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare review to see why it is thoroughly recommended for your Christmas stockings.
