The Warzone and MW3 May 8 update finally brings a fix for the Tac Sprint bug preventing players from reloading, so here are the full patch notes of everything else included.

Call of Duty has a history of encountering problems after major updates are introduced, and Warzone Season 3 Reloaded proved to be no different. Despite introducing new content, the mid-season update was overshadowed by a ton of bugs, including an Automatic Tac Sprint issue restricting the ability to reload.

This has finally been addressed in the Warzone and MW3 May 8 update, so check out the full patch notes below.
