Bit of a bug, every time I go in now it defaults to safeguard. I only play hc tdm and now have to keep selecting it.

Is that just the featured mode you are seeing? Or something different? There is always a featured mode that shows up when you first select Multiplayer and then you have to go into the full playlist to see all other modes.

Just when you drop out or go in the first time it used to remember the previous mode you played it doesn’t do that it now defaults to safeguard.

I have got to say fixing this is not going to be;p this game it is broken on so many levels.

It should be very embarrassing for a company your size to release this and not fix it.

I have stopped playing so don’t really care if you fix the menu or not.

Haven't played cod for a little over a week now and now that I decide to see if things have gotten better I see that it's a waste of time. Still nothing on the servers...

“Nice gun” challenge not tracking properly.

Pickup an enemies weapon and get a 5 killstreak with atleast one of the kills being on the enemy who dropped the gun. Ive done this multiple times getting merciless medals along with backfire medals and there not counting towards the challenge. Ill kill an enemy, pickup his weapon and definitely get more than five kills and ill make sure im watching the medals pop up... ill see backfire and bloodthirsty and after the game ill go straight to challenges and it wont count. Its something to look into!
