Multiple controller issues
In a lengthy Reddit post, user SpiritualBiskit explained how bad the issues caused by the Call of Duty update. He pointed out that the input delay has gradually worsened through each of the game’s updates.
For those who don’t know, input delay refers to the time it takes for the game to process a player’s controller input. Too much input delay can be frustrating since winning these games heavily rely in quick reaction times.
According to the Reddit post, the player experiences 300ms to 400ms input delays. He blames the problem on the game’s unrefined patches.
The game seemed to have multiple issues since the first season ended. All the Call of Duty updates after the season had problems and issues.
The Reddit post was posted last May 16 but took a nasty turn when the gaming community started complaining about the same controller issues.

The revelation has caused great concern in the Call of Duty gaming community. Even pro players are questioning why they are having a hard time aiming in the game.
One pro player even shared a video of his game on Twitter showing that the new Call of Duty update messed up his controls. The video, captured via PlayStation4, show that his controller’s vertical aiming is more dominant compared to his horizontal assist.
The comments prove that most players have been affected and that the aiming problem has increased tenfold since the release of the Call of Duty update. These problems surely need to get fixed as soon as possible since millions of Call of Duty players are depending mostly via their controllers.
It seems Modern Warfare is not the only one having problems. Recently, Warzone players are complaining about major problems such as glitches and hackers. The developers need to polish each Call of Duty update to retain their huge fan base.
