Call of Duty: Modern Warfare |OT| Zero Dank Thirty

wants to fuck an Asian grill.

Release: October 25, 2019
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC (Battle . net launcher)
Developer: Infinity Ward
Special Thanks to TGO TGO

Call of Duty is back for a sorta-kinda-prequel, sorta-kinda-reboot of the iconic 2007 masterpiece CoD4: Modern Warfare. Once again, take the role of SAS agents and US Marines as you partake in missions throughout the Middle East, Russia, and...London. The Spec Ops mode, which debuted in 2009's Modern Warfare 2, also makes a return.

Singleplayer Intel
---
- 4 to 6 hour long campaign, roughly
- Still very linear. Some missions let you branch out a bit, but expect an A to B affair
- Multiple playable characters, including the series' first prominent female main character
- Mount onto just about any corner or waist high cover to maximize aim
- Night Vision Goggles are more important than ever with multiple nighttime levels featuring a Splinter Cell style light-dark meter
- You can aim and reload at the same time now, when you want to maintain visual focus on an area

Multiplayer Intel
---
- No Season Pass or paid-for maps. Instead, Activision has opted for a Fortnite-esque Battle Pass to unlock cosmetics
- Work-in-progress Ground War mode featuring 64 player clusterfucks. This mode is limited at launch and will receive more support over time
- Close quarter intimate 2v2 Gunfight mode. No respawns. Multiple rounds. This mode has its own tailor-made maps
- No Overwatch/Black Ops esque specialist characters. Unlockable special characters are purely for cosmetic purposes
- In addition to the usual primary, secondary, 3 perks, tactical, and lethal equipment, you have a Field Upgrade and a Weapon Perk now
- Crossplay. PS4 can play with Xbox. Xbox can play with PC. PC can play with PS4.

Finished on hardened in about the same amount of time. Good not great story. Few scenes that I thought were fucked up tbh.

The multiplayer givin weird vibes. Its hella fun but its not quite as "arcadey" as prior CoDs. Like I have to be a little more careful running around than I did in Black Ops 4.

Im not gonna say its tactical per se. You can still win easy without even using a mic unlike PUBG or Rainbow Six. But it requires a little more brain lol.

Ha, nice OT. Haven't had a chance to touch the SP but love the MP with my best m8. Gun game was pretty great. Is it just me or are the filtered TDM matches a bit f'd right now. We only wanted the low 6v6 to warm up and we kept getting tossed into the chaotic larger modes. Maybe there is an option there but we couldn't find it, unlike the beta. Love the new engine and gfx effects.

not digging what i've seen and played

the ttk / ttd is just absolutely garbo, as are the maps (some of the worst designs i've ever seen)

the movement and gunning is really nice tho, the team should be proud of what they accomplished here

That mission where you’re going through the house was great at first, but it felt like we were the Three Stooges crammed on the steps I’ve been enjoying the multiplayer, but the maps are easily forgettable if you ask me. They’re fun to play on, but nothing memorable. I switched to multiplayer once I had to head to the hospital because the level really felt ugly. I think it’ll be worth finishing the campaign. I think it falls in line with AW and BO in terms of a campaign. Play it once, enjoy it, and move on. Great job on the OT.

the team should be proud, considering the turnaround on these games they got a lot done in such little time

curious what this game looks like a year from now

i'm hoping maybe a black ops 2 remaster is in the cards, i really miss arena shooters with double jump and wall run

esports dudes karma and nadeshot and a few others think the maps are pretty trash. I agree hope the post launch map drops will alleviate the rotation.

I pretty much agree with the notion of great gunplay and smooth movement, but the maps are atrocious. They are way too big

I usually at least jumped into every cod for Single Player. I always loved cod single player. How is it this time?
I kinda am NOT unterested in cod at all since I've not played any last year and I am not feeling the need.
BUt I am also not interested in Outer Worlds. It looks like a whacky, borderlandsy mass effect rip off which people prop up just becasue we did not had an rpg like that since mass effect.
Anyway - I must try not to be cynical and give at least OW a try... it's on pc gamepass

I kinda like the look of this. Feels like a long time since I've played a military shooter... maybe it's the nostalgia talking.

I'm not all that impressed to be honest. Just feels like more COD. Not seeing what was so shocking about the campaign. MP is the same as ever, could do with more round-based modes.

Thanks for making the OT

I like everything in the game except the maps. Good god they’re straight up garbage! It’s like they chose the best 2-3 maps and put them in the beta and the rest are just absurd

The campaign though is on its way to be the best campaign in COD’s history!

Wow I’m super terrible at this game. I haven’t played CoD since Ghosts and holy fuck have things changed.

My old playstyle is garbage now and after playing Hardcore TDM with a few friends tonight my K/D is at .80.

I remember back in the day there were a few campers here or there, but now it seems like everyone is afraid to move.

I actually find it surreal how much the meta and gameplay has changed.

Anyone else’s One X running really hard with this game? My fans almost sound like my PS4 and my one x is normally pretty quiet.

A few of my friends have said it shuts their system right off when it tries to load maps.

I assume that is not good.

Yeah that sucks. Mine hasn’t crashed but man it’s pushing air like no one’s business. Even RDR2 didn’t work it this hard.

I don't see how they feel the game plays too fast. I think the game plays too sluggish with super spotty hit detection. The dead silence movement feels more apropos to COD just needs to be turned down a tad if were the regular movement speed, in my opinion. The maps are pretty phony. I think the worst would be Aniyah Palace. In spite of this, overall I still enjoy the game. It's a lot better when playing with friends. Just salty dead silence isn't a regular perk. That really sucks ass. Hope they put more maps in rotation as well. Keep playing the same 3 maps.

There are only 6 and before they patched yesterday the night maps came up too frequently. Now I think the occasional night map might be fine but it has to be like 1 in every 6 maps.

Wild part is I haven't even played a night time map yet. Just Rammaza?, Aniyah palace and another I keep forgetting the name.

Not at all but the game crashes my whole system. They said they fixed it with the latest patch

Not enough 6v6, 10v10 maps imo. I shouldn't compare I suppose, but MW (COD4) had 16 maps at launch I think. I feel with this MW I'm on beta map rotation.

I couldn't even play the beta because my X would shut down trying to load a map. I had it happen once in an hour of playtime yesterday and the fan was louder than any game I ever played. Hopefully they figure it out soon, this is the first COD in many years that feels like they really gave a bleep and invested resources in making it feel fresh(er).

Rammaza is great. Feels like something out of mw2 or cod4.

Picadilly is the one where teams can get absolutely fucked. Not sure how the meta will develop. Would be funny if people ran Smoke Grenades cuz of this map lmao. Nobody really used smoke in other cods.

That’s sucks. Hope it gets fixed. What I’ve played I’ve really enjoyed.

Having fun I must say. Any UKgaf have issues with the game.co.uk double XP not working? I redeemed the code ok but no option to activate in multiplayer menu via L3 as suggested? Pieceratops is my PSN if anyone wants to add me.

I enjoyed the story mode quite a bit, but the size of the multiplayer maps is ruining multiplayer for me. It feels like I'm running, running, running nonstop, get taken out by some guy laying behind some counter and then I'm running for 2 minutes more to get back into the action

Yeah the bridge level..... yikes that bridge is the key to victory.

However I respect that you try. I cant stand peeps that hang back and protect their k/d. People are scared of a little digital death. Fuck that I'm in there as fodder.

I'm confused. Is this game free to play? Because when I open the Blizzard launcher, all I see is "install" instead of a "buy now" link.
