Modern Warfare 2s ping system has seemingly been disabled in an attempt to control “wall-hack” cheaters.
Within hours of reports that a ping bug on your death screen could let you track a single player for the rest of the game surfaced, developer Infinity Ward quietly disabled the ping system.
“Huge Bug: You can Ping an enemy during the death screen and the Ping lasts for the whole game, essentially giving you wallhacks on that one player for the remainder of the game,” reported u/zFStatic.
“Bruh this is a huge bug,” confirmed another player. “I swear I noticed people tracking me through walls but I didn’t want it be that guy so I chalked [to] up to coincidence. This needs to get fixed ASAP otherwise it’ll become rampant.”

“I thought I was going crazy,” opined another. “F*ckers keep prefiring the exact corner Im hiding in, but dont bother checking any corners as they run straight to me.”
Theres been no official word from developer Infinity Ward that the ping has been disabled nor any word on when it may be reinstated, but for now, it looks as though the ping system is only available in private matches. Well keep you posted as and when that changes, of course.
