[Updated] COD: Modern Warfare 2 scoreboard still glitched or skipping players' names

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on January 12, 2023) follows:

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is quite a popular first-person shooter game set in a realistic and modern setting.

The game recently received the Season 01 ‘Reloaded’ update, which added new weapons and operators and brought several changes to the gameplay.

For instance, the update fixed an issue that caused lingering smoke to disappear while in ADS during active S.A.E.


It also corrected a bug preventing gamers from selecting the correct number of ‘Battle Pass Tokens’ to purchase.

However, some users are reporting some issues that seem to have popped up after the recently introduced update.

Modern Warfare 2 scoreboard still glitched or skipping players’ names

According to reports (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10), some users are facing difficulties navigating through the scoreboard because of the persistent glitch.

Some are facing problems while reporting a player, as when they try to select their name on the scoreboard, it appears to skip every second person in the list.

For others, when trying to do so, the game brings up a list of all players, making one scroll at least twice to find the person.

Due to this glitch, players are also experiencing difficulties while trying to mute another participant. And so they’ve resorted to muting the entire lobby because of a single irritating person.

Can only select every other player on scoreboard. Can’t mute individual players from the lobby list. GUI element images persist after changing, showing incorrect things.

The problem seems to be affecting players across multiple platforms.


@Activision @InfinityWard why haven’t you guys put out a patch for MW2?? Seriously, the game is broken! Scoreboard for muting doesn’t work, guns shooting ghost bullets, certain guns being overpowered (looking at the Chimera), marksman and sniper rifles getting hit markers on head.

What’s up with the voice chat usernames stuck on the screen, not being able to mute people on the scoreboard or scroll thru everyone… glitches on the weekend really guys

According to a user, the bug seems to have been persistent for quite some time, but the developers are yet to fix it.

Some players don’t even feel like playing the game because of these issues.

No official acknowledgment

Unfortunately, the developers have not officially acknowledged the issue, and it may take some time before the problem is resolved.

That said, we’ll keep an eye on the issue where some Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 players are experiencing problems due to the glitched scoreboard and update this article as and when something noteworthy comes up.

Update 1 (April 24, 2023)

05:59 pm (IST): A recent bug causes the Modern Warfare 2 ‘scoreboard’ assigned button to open the weapons/load-outs screen instead of the scoreboard (1,2).

Update 2 (April 25, 2023)

06:24 pm (IST): Some players are now reporting another issue with scoreboard where the results are constantly flashing on the screen during the match, blurring the view.
