A group of glitching specialists was reportedly flown out to California at the weekend to test Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer component.
According to mapMonkeys, which describes itself as "a community of gamers who have become infatuated with discovering and sharing glitches, exploits, tricks, and strategies", it's not the first time the group has been enlisted to test Call of Duty games, although this time it's getting twice as long as usual to do so.
Founder Rezzzo said in a post on the mapMonkeys site: "Four members of mapMonkeys are being flown out to California on Sunday, July 10th, to test Modern Warfare 3, including mapMonkey, IM Buddy8, skateboard, and myself!
"We've been flown out to test other games in the past (Such as Call of Dut:World at War and Modern Warfare 2), but we only had 2 or 3 days to test the game and find glitches, which wasn't nearly enougn time.
"This time, Infinity Ward is keeping us there an entire week so we can find more bugs and glitches than ever before! I know this goes against mapMonkeys since we thrive off of finding and sharing glitches with each other, but this is an amazing opportunity we can't pass up!"
The naturally excited Rezzzo said he's even bought a new video camera to record the trip.
Activision has promised Modern Warfare 3 will deliver "the most advanced multiplayer ever". Little has been revealed so far, but Infinity Ward has confirmed it'll feature a heavily revamped killstreak system. Check out a list of rumoured MW3 killstreaks here.
