MW3 fans have encountered a bug that prevents them from equipping the latest Aftermarket Parts reward, the JAK Ettin Double Barrel Kit, for completing the Weekly Challenges for Week 6.

It’s a sore spot for Modern Warfare 3 players, as a similar bug prevented players from equipping the last Aftermarket Parts reward only a few weeks prior.

Many are growing tired of not being able to access the rewards they’ve worked hard for in MW3.

JAK Ettin Double Barrel Kit Bugged

The Ettin bug has been fixed in a Season 1 patch released on January 11.

The Ettin bug in MW3 is preventing players from accessing and equipping the Weekly Challenges reward for Week 6 of Season 1.

It seems to be an issue that’s affecting all MW3 players:

Players are astounded that they are encountering the same bug that prevented them from equipping the JAK Beholder Rifle Kit for the TYR in Week 3 of Season 1.

It’s an issue that has not gone unnoticed, with many fans questioning if Sledgehammer Games properly tests the game:

When heading into the Conversion Kit section for the AMR9 SMG, there is no option to choose The Ettin. Instead, it simply says “No Modifications”:

What’s strange is that you can preview The Ettin on the AMR9 while in the Weekly Challenges menu. This means that the assets already exist in the game:

Is There a Fix for the Bug?

Yes, Sledgehammer Games fixed the bug in a Season 1 patch released on January 11.

Previously, the Call of Duty Updates X/Twitter acknowledged the issue:

Since the patch, players can now equip the JAK Ettin Double Barrel Kit as intended!

How to Get

To get the JAK Ettin Double Barrel Kit in MW3, you must complete 5 Weekly Challenges for Week 6 Season 1 in any MW3 multiplayer mode or MW3 Zombies.

The JAK Ettin Double Barrel Kit is an Aftermarket Part that adds a double-barrel attachment to the AMR9 SMG. It significantly increases its fire rate and damage at close range, at the cost of reduced accuracy.

You can choose to complete any 5 Weekly Challenges for Week 6 that appear in the Multiplayer, Zombies, and Battle Royale tabs of the Weekly Challenges menu screen.
