Players who played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 2019 had the chance to try out the “Gunsmith”, an option in the title that allowed players to customize their weapons. Well, this feature will be back and it will be improved in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. It is through a presentation video that Mary Evdjukian and Ben Garnell explain the new Gunsmith 2.0 to you.
This time you will feel like you are in an armory and you will be able to customize your weapon from A to Z. Inside it you will be able to ddevelop and upgrade a weapon far beyond its class to truly customize your loadout. Upgrade your weapon rig from an Assault Rifle to an SMG, DMR, and/or LMG by swapping out receivers to a specific rig, using a full suite of accessories to support your role armed. Moreover, gWith weapon platforms and branch progression, attachments are shared within and between weapon platforms. Depending on the attachment, it is either unlocked for all weapons on a platform or unlocked for ALL weapons in the entire game. Expect reduced repetitiveness and reasonable challenges to unlock attachments and camouflage… And if you fancy a journey of mastery, don’t worry: we’ve got that covered too. It will be possible to test your creation without sacrificing K/D within the gunsmith in a range. In short, a revamped experience that will appeal to Call of Duty players.
This weekend will be held the open beta phase for players who have pre-ordered the game. However, before the start of this beta phase you should not miss the Call of Duty: Next presentation which will take place tomorrow around 1:30 p.m. of Quebec).
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is expected on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series on October 28, 2022.
Infinity Ward Reveals Modern Warfare 2 Museum Map, Players Are Already Loving It
Modern Warfare 2 will have plenty of maps available to players from day one, and one of the most massive maps will be Museum, a 6v6 map that has just been officially unveiled by the developers.
Indeed, to galvanize player excitement on Twitter ahead of the beta kickoff, Infinity Ward revealed the full Museum blueprint on Twitter, making it the first map officially unveiled to players. Enthusiastic, many players then hastened to share their opinion on this new playground.
Museum of Modern Warfare 2 already seems to be unanimous
On Reddit, a user shared a screenshot of the Museum plan, neither one nor two of many future players gave their opinion on this first map.
“At first glance it makes me think nostalgically of Raid. I say it like that, but there really are similarities. I also wonder if they were inspired by Raid for this map,” said a user.
Call of Duty Next: time, program, games… The detailed conference
Activision is hosting a back-to-school event this week with the arrival of the Call of Duty Next conference. A great first in the history of the studio, which intends to highlight its biggest license for a large-scale conference. This broadcast scheduled for Thursday evening will obviously address the upcoming release of the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but not only. Because it will also be about the release of the next Warzone, currently called Warzone 2.0, and the future of the Call of Duty franchise in general. It is true that many questions remain after the titanic takeover of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft last year.
What date and time for Call of Duty Next?
To start with the basics, know that the Call of Duty: Next conference will take place on September 15 next to 6:30 p.m. French time. The call will be streamed live on this page, and on Activision’s YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and TikTok pages. Presented by Infinity Ward, the studio behind the development of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, this event will discuss the game’s multiplayer in more depth, and will also look at the future of the license.
What to expect from Call of Duty Next?
For a first event, Activision has planned things big. Call of Duty Next is defined as “a defining event” for the future of the franchise, which will reveal the immediate fate of Call of Duty games. Of course, there will be new information and images from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, including a full dive into its multiplayer mode and perhaps information on the new DMZ game mode. But that’s not all, the next Battle Royale according to Call of Duty will also be on the menu with new announcements around the next Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, and the mobile game Call of Duty: Warzone (Project Aurora).
Call of Duty Warzone: Activision is cleaning up!
Activision deletes 500,000 Call of Duty accounts
We would like to say, “better late than never”, but such a decision on the part of Activision is quite surprising, finally, yes and no, we explain ourselves. You are not unaware that Call of Duty: Warzone is living its final moments through its Season 5, and the same goes for Call of Duty: Vanguard. After that, the two titles will no longer benefit from content updates, and it will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s turn to take over, for two years. But then, why carry out such an action a few days before their death?
Activision has indeed decided to delete no less than 500,000 Call of Duty accounts, in order to provide players with a better gaming experience and better quality of life. And while this decision may seem a little surprising given the situation, we can easily imagine that the developers decided to do this so that future Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 players could enjoy gameplay without cheaters and without toxicity in the community.
According to Activision, thee studio would therefore have deleted 500,000 accounts, and forced 300,000 others to change their name. As a result of these metrics, the studio revealed that Warzone saw a “55% drop in the number of offensive username and clan tag reports from our players, year-over-year, in the month of August alone.”
In addition to the cheaters that we can find in spades, but which are quickly removed thanks to the RICOCHET anti-cheat system, we can clearly see that Activision also wants to eradicate the slightest toxicity, and that’s good. As a result, there is also a new code of conduct that has been put in place.
New Call of Duty Driving Mode
As we were telling you, Activision has worked hard to put in place a new code of conduct, and here are the new rules to follow:
- Treat everyone with respect Communication with others, whether through text or voice chat, should be free of offensive or harmful language.
- Compete with integrity You are responsible for how your account is used. The use of cheats, including third-party software, is unacceptable. Exploiting bugs or engaging in any activity that gives an unfair advantage is considered cheating.
- stay alert To promote an enjoyable gaming experience, use the in-game tools to report any incidents or inappropriate behavior you encounter.
