With seasonal updates adding plenty of new weaponry into Modern Warfare 2, there’s a huge variety for players to choose from before loading into the action. Whether it’s close quarters or long distance, there’s something for everyone.

As attention turns towards the Season 3 Reloaded update, fans of Infinity Ward’s latest multiplayer are continuing to see hackers ruining ranked play while fans discover new Black Ops teasers potentially pointing towards the next chapter of the franchise.

Before the mid-season update, one player uncovered a bug that causes the front half of their weapons to disappear.

Dude, where's my Modern Warfare 2 gun?

While testing out a range of different guns in the firing range, a Reddit user quickly noticed the barrel of the weapon was missing, much to their confusion.

“What bundle do I need to buy to unlock the rest of my gun? “ jokes the fan. “It’s DLC for Season 4 Reloaded,” replies another player.=

The exact cause of the disappearing gun parts remains a mystery and it’s unclear if this is an isolated incident or part of a widespread issue impacting several players wanting to test their newly-created loadouts before jumping into multiplayer.

Gun parts aren’t the only thing that’s vanished during the Modern Warfare 2 cycle. In recent weeks, the faces of various Operators are disappearing leaving their eyes and teeth on show. As expected, it’s a frightening sight to behold on the battlefield.

It’s unknown if Infinity Ward is aware of the disappearing gun barrels but with Season 3 Reloaded on the way soon, there’s a high chance the developer plans on applying a fix so it doesn’t impact players anymore. In the meantime, it’s probably best to perform a quick reset to see if the barrel reappears.
