A frustrating glitch with Modern Warfare’s menu system is leaving players unable to change the reticles on their guns. Thankfully, we’ve got everything you need to work around the problem.

Having the right reticle on your weapons can be super important. Using sights like a Red Dot or Holographic can make it easier to target enemies, but the wrong reticle can make it an even bigger challenge than before.

Unfortunately, an annoying glitch with the Modern Warfare menu system is making it impossible to change them. When players select the option, it immediately launches them into the “Play” menu, and is affecting players on PC and PlayStation.

While this is incredibly frustrating, the good news is that there is a workaround for those struggling to change the reticle on their weapons.

Some players have managed to use the game’s Blueprint system to change their reticles, and while not ideal, does let players choose which one they want to use.

Affected players may want to try:

  1. Open Warzone, and go to the Weapon Gunsmiuth.
  2. Choose your optic, then select the reticle you want.
  3. Go back to the main Gunsmith screen, and create a new Weapon Modiciation.
  4. Once saved, go back to multiplayer and select the gun you modified.

While this is a lengthier process, it will allow you to make any changes to the reticle that you want.

The good news is that this issue has been added to Activision‘s “known issues” page, which means developers Infinity Ward are aware of it.

When the team will drop a fix for this problem remains unknown, but with around 2 million people playing the game daily, fans will be desperate to see this bug squashed in the near future. With major updates set to drop with Warzone Season 5, it’s possible the fix may come then.
