A bunch of info got leaked for Infinite Warfare MP! Weapon variants out of crates are back, and IW is doing a bunch of weird things to Create-a-Class (e.g. separating supers from your character, and there are "archetypes" for characters like medic, sniper, etc?)

gently caress weapon variants.

Infinite Warfare is a copy of Black Ops 3 with lovely maps and pay-to-win microtransactions. But nobody is here to play that, everyone is going to play Modern Warfare Remastered and this will be the last Call of Duty game that will sell well.

They still have MW2 remastered to prop up the next game.

It has to survive a Sledgehammer installment so if they had planned WaW remastered to combat Battlefield 1 it would have been smart. They could save MW2 remastered for the next Infinity Ward.

If they could make the season pass free for the PC it would be great. It's impossible to play those maps outside a few weeks of their release.

Also having a rotating mode of the day where you get more XP so anything other than TDM is populated. I'm stunned they still haven't done this already but hey who cares about anything other than metacritic and microtransactions?

I'm not surprised it has issues. A lot of things changed in sequels for a reason.

But maybe they should have considered "just like you remembered" means within an hour of playing you start shouting "gently caress now I remember this poo poo!"as you disappear under a wave of martyrdom, triple frags and quick scopes.

on a more serious note with the game. Its alot like Blops 3 was in the start. a bit buggy with what feels like it wants to be a good game. alot of things feel very close to being good but just barely missing the mark. My personal favorite weapon class is inconsistent to the point that when it works how i want, Its really loving awesome. but when it doesnt, It really is like a nail in my dick hole. As with every other cod i've played, Its exactly what i wanted, The same exact game with a new filled playerbase.

Black Ops 3 grew on me to the point I nearly got 100%. Stopped at 86%, the small PC player base and faster reactions made a lot of the challenges a pain in the rear end. The only areas it really missed the mark was Treyarch's obsession with three lanes. They can design good maps but it starts to get old.

Here the map design has limited sight lines, many entrance/exits and few open areas, low ADS speed so SMGs are top pick. Perhaps I should be thankful shotguns are too inconsistent and short ranged to be worth using. I doubt I will ever see a nuke killstreak used in IW because it's so hard to stay alive that long. There's a lot of very questionable balance on variants and rig perks and gently caress knows what we will find out when they data mine it.

PC Specific Updates

* Add support for raw mouse input.
* Fixed issues where recent changes to ButtonHelperText were not playing nice with the user's ability to change gamepad enabled status.
* Additional restart game warning has been added to the "Optimal Video" option to allow the user to be warned that the game will restart when setting to optimal settings.
* Changed Particle Lighting option description to be more descriptive and not imply it is a toggle.
* Fixed issue where a LUI error will occur when attempting to select a locked weapon in the SP loadout menu.
* CaC PC Keyboard-only - show key hint for personalize attachment and use a tinted background when on PC/Keyboard.
* Fixed mute hints on PC mouse and keyboard not displaying the hotkey. Fixed for CP/MP scoreboard and frontend lobbies.

* fix for Russian character decoding problem
* Colour Blind rendering fixes
* MenuButton in CP has been updated so that its width will be adjusted to match what it is currently displaying, and will no longer be anchored to the right in CP. This allows mouse input to not highlight or activate buttons when the mouse pointer is seemingly not going over anything.

* Helper buttons (commands on bottom of screen in menus) are reformatted to be large button to click on with the mouse.

* Full Screen ghosting bug fix for multiple monitors
* Fixed issues with window client sizing when the Windows DPI setting is not 100%
* Stability fixes for multi-gpu setups
* Fix for GPU sync in SP for optimal latency input

* Exfil - Player's jackal can get stuck in a locked-on state wherein it continues to speed forward without moving
* Fixed issue where certain UI items were still able to be selected and change the 3D scene view when using a mouse when editing a single loadout. This would occur when mousing over on the left side of the screen in the LoadoutSelect menu while running the game with an aspect ratio wider than 16:9.
* Fix for pre-baked shadows on PC
* Zombies - For PC keyboard - Fix 'unbound' button hint for unpausing a challenge.
* Adding missing processing of the self visibility data in the CPU skinning code.
* Fix estimation of mip chain counts for render targets and all single mip image resources.
* Cinematic hitching playback fix
* Fix an issue where the ship assault briefing window on OpsMap was offset incorrectly on non-16:9 aspect ratios.
* Fixed issue where a LUI error would occur when changing between gamepad and keyboard support.
* Zombies - Global - Users are unable to mute other players while using the Mouse and Keyboard control scheme while in a Zombies match.
* Fixed issue where attaching a controller when in the Gamepad Control Options menu would cause the Gamepad Enable/Disable selection to become inconsistent with the current gamepad enabled status.
* Fixing nameplates on PC when using non 16:9 aspect ratios.
* Invalidate shader cache on video driver version change
* Fixed an issue where when using the gamepad or keyboard to navigate and modify advanced video settings, the settings button being modified would lose focus every time the setting was changed and the "vid_reconfig" command was executed.
* Added "Copy other config" in controls for PC only
* Render resolution is now driven by total pixel count
* Fix the minimap jumping when pitch goes past 90 degrees on PC.

* Various advanced video options and optimal video bug fixes
* The Combat Rig payload/perk preview box will remain overlapping the Loadout previews when moving the mouse cursor down from 'Select Combat Rig' and rapidly pressing F1 and ESC.
* Fixing race condition in network status changed event code
* CP- End of match scoreboard broshot is cut off with a PC using an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 at Resolution 1920x1200
* Prevent PC from exiting frame early for throttling in the UI
* Fix for Keyboard and mouse controls are unable to interact with the in-game scoreboard.
* Updated Texture Resolution option on PC to only prompt the user to restart the game to update its setting after it loses focus from the user deselecting it after making a change to its value. If the user decides to not restart, the value returns to its original value before any changes had been made.
* Display numbers instead of special characters for bindings on keys 0-9 when playing in french
* Loadout menu now has Clear buttons on all applicable boxes.
* Loadout menu now has Personalize buttons on the weapon and scope buttons when applicable.
* Weapon name and rarity are moved to a different position to accomodate the new buttons.
* Scope "F1"/"Triangle" personalize hint now only displays if controller is enabled.
* Zombies - fix for facemelter distance ratio being too small
* Shrunk and moved the brightness box down on the PC options so it does not overlap the menu.
* Enable all killstreak actionslot keybindings to work in Drop Zone
* Update to PC FOV Scaler
* Fix for PC bug with cached shadows

Supposedly they've nerfed the Volt on consoles due to it being a monster in competitive.

Speaking of salvage, where are you supposed to earn it once you level up all 4 mission teams? I've already finished 2 of them and it's not even December yet. Yes, I realize I've poopsocked this game but still. They need to refresh their stock with new guns or add a prestige system to the mission teams or something.

You don't. You get your unpredictable rare crates and the daily login. I'd like to see an average of what rares pay out to get an idea of the rate, from the screenshots of 11 rares I kept it averaged to 40 a crate.

Care Package seems to be for balancing reasons. AUAV takes three rockets to kill and can at least see Ghost users. How is it poo poo? Is it because it can be shot down by anyone with a gun instead of "lock-on rockets only"?

Care Package was my first unlock as it gives a more valuable score streak 50% of the time and doesn't feel like it has much bias against top streaks.

It's hardly much more generous with the top ones costing 6,400, requiring the lower tiers, the daily bonus being about 40 scrap and opening a crate giving you 10-40 scrap. Plus there still are crate only weapons.

BO3 is possibly more generous once they got bribes in. The one thing I will give them is having camo for weapon class instead of the stupid per gun approach.
