The set of MW3 patch notes since December began, the latest update’s biggest changes are in the form of the Ghost perk buffs and the weapon nerfs.

Ghost perk buff — December 14 update

The Ghost perk has been given a grace period of 2 seconds, allowing players to “be stationary” for the allowed time “before anti-radar effects are disabled.”

This change was brought on due to feedback according to the MW3 patch notes. “With this change, players remain detectable by radar while not moving, but momentary pauses will no longer cause their position to be revealed,” the post said.

MW3 weapon nerfs — December 14 update
