Can I preorder Modern Warfare HD yet? I don't care about this space nonsense.

They've kept a tight lid on whether you can get MW a la carte, since no one would buy IW if you could.


Also, I have no idea what everyone is talking about on this page. The plot of CoD has always been Skyler is a jerk and his mom is a whore.

Got an email that the PS4 beta begins 10/14, with xbone "to follow."

Seems awful late. Xbox would overlap with tf2 release. Also possibly Battlefield I, but who cares about that dumb game?

If I can snag ghost with the DLC for like $10-15 in some sale I'll probably do it just to play Extinction again.

The PS4 ghosts hardened edition is selling for 15bux on Amazon.

A small price to pay for the last good CoD.

I actually wanna say that it was pretty decent? Campaign shook it up sorta in the sense that the ending is just the hero getting tortured the same way the villain does, multiplayer is boots on ground with consistent hitting, and Extinction has you shooting bugs instead of zombies.

I guess people wanted more Modern Warfare so that's why they poo poo on it? Or is there something more?


Jokes on them, I actually might play IW.

I was saying that un-ironically, I enjoyed it. I think most people didn't like it because it had some large maps that were stinkers (that castle map...), the player base was split over 4 consoles, and only the new gen had ground war.

It also had some great maps (HOTDOG), Nodes! was the best clan thing ever (admittedly not a high bar), and some fun weapons and equipment.

No, because nobody will be happy with it. It was said some will be visible in the beta. I'm just hoping for all the MW2 shotguns, but I know it'll just be sniper rifles and SMG's. Also, make LMG's great again.

5 of the returning weapons have been announced! With new, sillier names!
Intervention (now TF141), UMP (MacTav 45), SPAS-12 (S-Ravage), M1, and ARX-160 (OSA)

I'm curious if the guns will have tweaked stats, or just be the exact same.

If it's the latter the nuUMP will be best gun in the game by far. It's an SMG with a guaranteed 3sk from any range without stopping power.

Goons play Dom and TDM 99% of the time so the lack of players argument doesn't really work. I played like 50 hours of S&D on Blops 2 PC with a full party when it had less then 100 players and we had no problem finding games.

S&D? PC? Lots of bad decisions here.

Also, S&D got a lot less fun with the advent of party chat. Really enjoyed someone trying to make a call out and just getting cut off.

Since the stats in MWR are completely unchanged from CoD4, here are some of the weird stats that are in CoD4.
  • AK-47: red dot and silencer both reduce the minimum damage to 20
  • AK-74u: red dot and silencer increase the hipfire spread to AR spread instead of SMG spread; has AR bullet penetration instead of SMGS
  • SAW: grip reduces hipfire spread
  • MP5: equipping the M9 as your secondary gives you an extra magazine (same applies to the Uzi but don't use the Uzi)
  • G36: ADS sway is reduced when crouching or prone
  • M40: damage with ACOG increases to 75

Infinite Warfare sales are down 50% year-over-year from Black Ops 3. And that's with MWR! To boot, CoD nominally held the top spot in NPD for revenue but the Pokemon games combined would be #1 with Pokemon selling for way less than CoD.

And here's ranges for IW shotguns. If you insist on running a shotgun, Suppressor is a good choice since you only lose 5% range and Long Barrel only adds 10% range.



How many pellets does each need for the ohk? It's a little disingenuous to show the KRM, because that required all eight pellets to hit for half its ohk range.

-- Lots of MP balance issues currently exist. Guns feel very unbalanced, the shotguns are fun but probably too overpowered in one on one confrontations. At least in my experience the LMG's are useless. Rate of fire just isn't fast enough. There is a lot aim jump if you get shot too so the theoretical LMG advantage is immediately taken away even when engaged in long distance.

People like you are why we never get good shotguns. The trade off for being the close range 1v1 king is you're bad at range, but nobody ever feels bad about killing the shotgunner from 20 feet away.

Divisions are supposed to add roles? I thought they were another form of perks? COD has never been designed for roles so I'm not sure what SH is thinking there.

I think it's more that they're moving away from the pick 10 system so you can't just load up on all the good perks.

I like the change because I think pick 10 leads to less diversity, not more. With pick 10 everyone just chooses all the old perk 2's that used to be mutually exclusive.
