Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

It turns out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 mentioned the bombing of Piccadilly CircusJan 18, 2020 - EurogamerOne of the more controversial missions in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare sees the player respond to a terrorist attack on Piccadilly Circus. But it turns this is quite an old idea - like, Modern Warfare 2 old. THERE MAY BE SPOILERS AHEAD. An eagle-eyed Call of Duty player took to the Modern Warfare subreddit to post a screenshot of 2009's Modern Warfare 2 showing a newspaper clipping found in Makarov's safehouse. The appropriately-named redditor NuclearFPS pointed out one newspaper in particular carries new meaning in the context of the recently-released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, as it reports on a bombing in Piccadilly Circus. Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's first season gets an extensionJan 16, 2020 - EurogamerCall of Duty: Modern Warfare Season One was announced as the "biggest free content drop in COD history" when it was unveiled back in December - so there's good news if you haven't yet chewed through all that content, as the season is being extended into February. Having begun on December 3rd, the season was supposed to run until the end of January - but is now ending on 11th February. The reason for the extension, according to Infinity Ward, is to give players room for all the bonus activities being added in the next few weeks. This will include "...a host of new items and challenges will arrive, including an in-game Challenge to earn the new Crossbow weapon, more remixed game modes, new playlists, and more in the Store to discover". "During that time, there will be 2XP, 2X Weapon XP, and 2X Tier Progression to help you finish up your Officer Ranks and Tiers, and get you ready for an exciting Season Two," Infinity Ward added. Read more Buy Modern Warfare's Outback pack now and support the Australian bushfire reliefJan 12, 2020 - EurogamerFrom now until the end of the month, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward is donating all proceeds from its Outback Pack DLC to the Australian wildfire crisis. Activision's donation includes any sales made before the charity drive was announced right up until the end of January, and includes sales sold across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The idea to donate proceeds originally came from the CoD Reddit community (thanks, dotesports), and while no official IW rep responded to the suggestion at the time, just a few days later IW and Activision announced the charity drive on Infinity Ward's social media channels. Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to get 3v3 Gunfight, additional loadouts and a raft of bug and exploit fixesJan 11, 2020 - EurogamerCall of Duty: Modern Warfare will get 3v3 Gunfight, additional loadouts and a raft of bug and exploit fixes, developer Infinity Ward has said. In the first major community update of 2020, Infinity Ward said it'll also bring back the Gunfight Tournament, last seen in November 2019. Elsewhere, Infinity Ward promised to tackle a number of bugs and exploits currently hot topics within the community. Among them is a fix for an exploit that sees players get out of the map in Ground War (Emma reported on glitchers in Ground War yesterday), and mission collision on containers on multiplayer map Cargo. Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare player gets revenge on wall glitchers with a tankJan 10, 2020 - EurogamerWe've had spawns raining men, tactical insertion teleports and players flying around the unreleased battle royale map - but now another glitch has gained prominence in the Modern Warfare community... albeit for all the wrong reasons. This time it's a more traditional online multiplayer problem: wall glitchers, who appear to be plaguing certain corners of Modern Warfare's maps. Until a player inserts a tank into said corner, that is. On the Modern Warfare subreddit and YouTube, users have been reporting issues with wall glitchers for several weeks - highlighting hotspots in Ground War maps such as a point near D in Tavorsk, one around C in Krovnik Farmland, and a severe under-map glitch in Port. Some of the most recent posts show wall glitchers inside silos in Karst River Quarry, and players demanding a teammate stop exploiting a glitch in Piccadilly. Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare player uses spectator glitch to explore battle royale mapDec 21, 2019 - EurogamerA Call of Duty: Modern Warfare player has used a spectator glitch to explore the game's battle royale map. Redditor KingBeezoR used the glitch, which is triggered within a private game with free spectating and the spawn camera enabled, to free roam high above the recently-added Vacant map. Vacant is a fan-favourite map that first appeared in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. What's interesting about the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare version of Vacant is it's set within the Massive Ground War map, Port of Verdansk - and it's this feature that means you can use it to explore the upcoming - but so far unannounced - battle royale map. Read more 1v1 and 3v3 modes are coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's GunfightDec 1, 2019 - EurogamerPlans to offer Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's Gunfight in both a 1v1 and 3v3 mode are coming "at some point". When asked on Twitter if there were plans to introduce 3v3 squads to the shooter's popular Gunfight, Joe Cecot - co-design director of multiplayer at Infinity Ward - revealed that not only is a 3v3 option Call of Duty: Modern Warfare coming to Gunfight, but 1v1 is also on its way, too. For now, Cecot can only say they're coming "at some point" in the future, but hopefully, we'll get a firmer window soon (thanks, Comicbook). Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's first season launches with "biggest free content drop in COD history"Nov 27, 2019 - EurogamerIt's Christmas come early for Call of Duty fans, as the launch date for Modern Warfare's first season has been revealed - along with a significant amount of free stuff. So much free stuff, in fact, Infinity Ward has labelled it the "biggest free content drop in Call of Duty history". Although, I'd argue raining men from spawns also qualifies for that category. Starting 3rd December, Modern Warfare players will have access to a host of new maps, including three new multiplayer maps, several 2v2 Gunfight maps and a new Ground War map. There's also two new weapons - the RAM-7 and Holger-26, new multiplayer modes Reinforce and Infected, and a variation on Gunfight mode called On Site Procurement, in which players begin a match with just their fists and gather equipment as the match progresses. On top of that, there's a range of new Spec Ops co-op missions, including one called Pitch Black which involves infiltrating Barkov's former estate. Personally, I'm excited to see the return of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare's maps Crash, Vacant and Shipment - which fit nicely into the reboot theme of this Modern Warfare. You can take a look at the preview for the content in the tweet below, and find a more detailed roadmap on the Call of Duty website. Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is having a tough weekNov 23, 2019 - EurogamerCall of Duty: Modern Warfare has had a tough week. Expectations from those within the Call of Duty community were high for this week's patch, but it disappointed many, and even included a line, seemingly left in by mistake, that preempted the backlash. But that's not all. A series of leaks from dataminers and other sources have given us a look at potential new maps and even a first glance at the upcoming battle pass - and Activision has issued copyright notices in a thankless bid to have them scrubbed from the internet. Read more Infinity Ward nerfs Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's dreaded sniper shotgun againNov 20, 2019 - EurogamerAnyone who's playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's competitive multiplayer portion will know about the dreaded 725. This shotgun has plagued multiplayer since Infinity Ward's first-person shooter launched. The issue: with the right attachments, it's a sniper shotgun. Infinity Ward has so far struggled to get the balance right with the 725, issuing multiple nerfs that have, at times, had unintended effects. A nerf on 11th November actually ended up buffing the shotgun, and it continues to dominate certain maps. Read more Massive Call of Duty: Modern Warfare datamine reveals loads of battle royale detailsNov 16, 2019 - EurogamerCall of Duty: Modern Warfare has been datamined to within an inch of its life, revealing a raft of details about the inevitable battle royale mode. Over on the Modern Warfare subreddit, notorious Call of Duty leaker Senescallo posted the massive map for the battle royale. Other images revealed by Senescallo set the scene for the battle royale, which is reportedly due out early 2020 and is co-developed by Infinity Ward and fellow Activision-owned studio Raven. Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare adds new maps, nerfs 725 "sniper-shotgun"Nov 8, 2019 - EurogamerIf you've poked your nose into the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare subreddit of late, you'll have noticed almost non-stop complaints about the game's multiplayer - mostly centred on map design and overpowered weapons. Thankfully, Infinity Ward is releasing a patch today which should tackle some of these problems: and finally calm down my Reddit feed. The big addition in this patch are the two new maps, Krovnik Farmland and Shoot House, which have been added to Ground War and Multiplayer respectively. Both maps are free, and you can get a small glimpse at the thumbnail for each on the official Call of Duty Twitter. Hardpoint mode - which requires players to take control of changing hardpoint locations - has also been added to rotation. If you do fancy splashing your cash, however, we now have a date for the Modern Warfare battle pass, which is coming out in December. Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare review - punchy gunplay in a camper's paradiseOct 31, 2019 - EurogamerThere's a lot going on with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. A lot that's good, a lot that's bad and plenty in between. Overall, the developers at Infinity Ward have done a fine job reestablishing the once titanic Modern Warfare sub-brand with this "soft reboot". But, at launch, this is a game of potential. It is not the finished article. Let's start with the good. Modern Warfare feels fantastic in your hands. Guns pack a real punch, their recoil meaningful and realistic. They're loud - as they should be - and distinctive. The audio work here is impressive - hats off to the sound designers at Infinity Ward. Modern Warfare is one of the best-sounding first-person shooters I've ever played. The reload animations are superb. I love the way you save a clip you haven't run dry for later with the same hand you replace it with. I love the way gun barrels smoke after extended fire. I love the way scopes actually magnify what you're looking at. The M4A1 assault rifle, an early favourite for multiplayer, is the most sickly sweet Call of Duty gun I've fired in years. Aim down sights and squeeze that right trigger, snappy, fluid and satisfying. Call of Duty has always been a wonderful game in which to fire a virtual gun, and Modern Warfare may be the best in the series for it. But something weird happens when you take your firecrackers out into the field - and I'm not sure it's a good weird. Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare accused of "rewriting history" to blame Russia for controversial US attacksOct 29, 2019 - EurogamerCall of Duty: Modern Warfare is finally here, and to the surprise of literally no-one, we already have another debate on our hands. This time, the game has been accused of rewriting history to place blame for controversial real-life US attacks on the Russians. Suddenly Sony's decision to avoid selling Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in the Russian PlayStation Store doesn't seem so surprising. This article contains spoilers for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare campaign. One mission in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's single-player campaign puts players in the shoes of Alex, a CIA agent embedded in a pro-US militia, who undertakes a sniping operation overlooking a valley full of burnt-out vehicles. That valley, and the name of the entire level, is called The Highway of Death - which the game says earned its name after the Russians bombed it during an invasion, killing those who tried to escape. Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's tactical insertions are a bit brokenOct 27, 2019 - EurogamerCall of Duty: Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward has responded to a strange Tactical Insertion glitch that teleports players to their deaths beyond the confines of the map. U/radi115 shared a video entitled "Tac inserts are bugged" that has since been upvoted over 1,300 times in order to flag the attention of the developer. After using the tac insertion, it shows the player spawning continually outside in the restricted area. Every five seconds they die, then respawn out of bounds again. Some Reddit users posit the issue is caused because the player placed the Tac Insert near a vehicle, but others who've experienced the same bug insist it can happen even if you do it in an open area, too. Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has a special message for players who keep shooting the babyOct 26, 2019 - EurogamerCall of Duty: Modern Warfare is now out and people are soldiering through its campaign. The gritty story includes a raft of set-pieces designed to put the player in an uncomfortable situation - and even includes opportunities for player choice. THERE MAY BE SPOILERS AHEAD. Read more Activision faces an uphill battle nuking Call of Duty: Modern Warfare gameplay from the internetOct 23, 2019 - EurogamerActivision is working to nuke leaked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare gameplay footage from the internet as copies of the game make their way to customers ahead of the official release date. Over the weekend we reported on how the Call of Duty community was bracing itself for campaign spoilers after copies of Modern Warfare were spotted in the wild. Now, two days before the official release of the game, the dam has well and truly burst, with footage of the campaign, multiplayer and other parts of the game flooding the internet. Players have picked up on unnanounced maps: Read more Sony decides not to sell Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on the PlayStation Store in RussiaOct 22, 2019 - EurogamerSony has decided not to sell Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on the PlayStation Store in Russia, Activision has said. A tweet from the Sony Russia account broke the news, and a statement from Activision issued to Eurogamer then confirmed it. In the statement, Activision revealed it was Sony that made the decision, confirmed Infinity Ward's shooter will be sold digitally in Russia on PC and Xbox, and stressed Modern Warfare "is a fictional game". Here's the statement in full: Read more Activision says Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will monetise through Battle Pass not loot boxesOct 17, 2019 - EurogamerActivision has laid-out its post-launch plans for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare ahead of its release next week, pledging that it will be monetising the game (as Infinity Ward's studio art director Joel Emslie hinted at on Monday) through a Battle Pass system and in-game store, rather than through the loot boxes seen in previous titles. Battle Passes will, as with other games that use the increasingly common system, be released on a seasonal basis, with each one bringing new content that matches the theme of the season. Additionally, Modern Warfare's Battle Pass will feature both free and premium reward tiers, known as "Streams", with the likes of base weapons and attachments, as well as COD Points, being earned through gameplay. Cosmetic-only content will be available within the Battle Pass and through Modern Warfare's in-game store. Read more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare developer insists Infinity Ward is not working on loot boxesOct 14, 2019 - EurogamerAmid growing speculation within the Call of Duty community about Modern Warfare's monetisation plan, one of the game's chief developers has stepped in to insist Infinity Ward is not working on loot boxes. Joel Emslie, studio art director at Infinity Ward, took to the Modern Warfare subreddit to issue a statement under the thread title "Current events", which is clearly designed to calm the rampant speculation. In the statement, Emslie said Infinity Ward is "definitely NOT working on any kind of supply drop or loot box system". Also, Emslie said "functional stuff is unlocked through GAMEPLAY". Here's the statement: Read more
