My friend stopped playing b/c of this issue and he didn't want to shell out the cost of another disc..

I think the only solution is to get another disc, so if you just bought it, then return it for a new copy.  If you bought it a while ago and it's just know happening, then you either need to shelf your copy and move to another game OR buy another MW3 disc.

Never had this happen to me and I've never known any of my friends going through this. Not sure what causes it aside from it being a bad disc

Try contacting activision @310-255-2050...I once had the same problem,just explain your situation to them...They may charge a small fee for a disc replacement,but in the end you'll save some cash...

Sorry to hear about the situation with your copy of Modern Warfare 3.  What console are you playing the game on?  Also is there any damage on the game disc itself.

If its for Xbox 360, try and clear the system cache or install the game disc to your hard drive.

If its for PlayStation 3, I recommend removing the game data file and re-downloading the update and DLC.

You can find both instructions here:

https://support.activision.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/Clearing-the-Xbox-360-System-Cache-or-PlayStation-...

Now if the problem continues, try testing your disc out on another console if possible.  This will allow us to see if we can replicate the issue.  Keep us posted.  Thanks!^RT

I bet your system scratched the shit out of the disc. It happened to me too, I just got it resurfaced for 3 dollars at a gamestore.
