Modern Warfare 3 - Do Players want only Hardcore Ricochet TDM ?

CoD Modern Warfare 3

Modern Warfare 3 - Do Players want only Hardcore Ricochet TDM

Many PC Players play Call of Duty because of the Hardcore game modes.

They were enjoying these HC modes also in Modern Warfare 3; but with the latest MW3 update patch all Hardcore modes got replaced with Hardcore Ricochet. So today many players lost their favourite game mode !

Question is: " Why did all HC modes became Ricochet ? "

Ricochet is when friendly fire is directed back to the shooter. Search and Destroy - Ricochet is PERFECT for this HC game mode. It will stop the TKing at the start of a S&D game.

Although Ricochet is intended to improve the game it gets misused intentionally; TDM - Ricochet will RUIN this HC game mode !

Childish minds will, instead of TKing you, just stand in front of your gun or face your claymore or betty and blow it up...


Modern Warfare 3 needs a proper kick-player feature that works. Ricochet simply causes more problems than it solves.

And the above list shows that also this time they only address things that aren't on the PC player's priority list.

MW3 - TEST memory cache flush & DNS flush

CoD Modern Warfare 3

After a long period of using your computer, it tends to be slower than usual, this is due to memory cache inability to flush away unused memory from the RAM. Restarting the computer is an option but not ideal if you’re in a hurry.

Flushing the memory via a command is the better option.

Here is a step by step tutorial on how to go about creating a shortcut for this process.

Flush And Free Up Windows 7 Memory Cache

Right click and create ‘Shortcut’


Flush And Free Up Windows 7 Memory Cache MW3

Copy and paste this code – %windir%system32rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks


Modern Warfare 3 Flush And Free Up Memory Cache

Rename the file, there you go, double click the file whenever you want to flush your computer’s memory.


Clearing your DNS Cache

Flushing your DNS cache can help with connection, ping and FPS  issues.

The command prompt can be run from the Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt application.

If when you run the "ipconfig /flushdns" command that you receive a message saying "The requested operation requires elevation" then you need to make sure that you run the Command Prompt with administrator privledges, which is as simple as right clicking on the application when you go to run it and choosing to "Run as administrator".

Type Command Prompt in Start Search, right-click on Command Prompt under Programs and select Run As Administrator.

administrator command prompt

Now in Command Prompt window type ipconfig /flushdns and hit Enter.

Clear Windows 7 DNS

As you can see from the screenshot above, it will show a message that the DNS Resolver Cache has been successfully flushed.
