With Modern Warfare 2’s release date approaching fast, players are calling for Infinity Ward to implement one particular Battlefield 2042 feature in the game.

Call of Duty players have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Modern Warfare 2 which is set to introduce a new campaignmapsmovement mechanics, and game-changing water design updates.

There may also be a ton of content that hasn’t been officially revealed by the developers yet. Now, players are hoping that Infinity Ward will take inspiration from Battlefield 2042 by adding one clever feature.

DICE added a new setting to Battlefield 2042’s accessibility menu that allows you to change the screen effect of Concussion Grenades and Flashbangs. You can choose to keep it white or change it to black.

Doing the latter will replace the white flash with a “blackout” effect that covers the screen in darkness for a few moments. This received praise from Reddit user ‘drdewd’ who expressed their desire to see it added in Modern Warfare 2.

Concussion Grenades and Flashbangs turn the screen white to simulate a bright flash, but this can cause problems for players that are sensitive to light, such as headaches. The Concussion Effect option reduces the chances of that happening.

One user in this Reddit thread pointed out that Flashbangs can be extremely painful, especially when playing in a dark room. They then stated that being able to change the effect “would be a nice feature to have.”

Another commenter added that the Concussion Effect option “should be standard in all games.” If Modern Warfare 2 includes this feature, it would be extremely helpful to players with a sensitivity to the light.

At the time of writing, it remains to be seen if the MW2 developers plan to implement a Concussion Effect adjustment in the game’s settings at some point. If they do, we’ll be sure to let you know.
