Our Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer Observations from XP2011
Multiplayer: -Felt like I was playing Call of Duty 4:MW with MW2’s graphics and U.I. -Graphics and Menus appear identical to MW2 with the exception of an image of a real soldier in the background similar to Black Ops. -Killstreaks or Air-support were rarely called in the games I played, mostly gun on gun gameplay like 402 promised. -However it seemed like the UAV was called every 2 seconds. -Respawns were VERY well balanced. I was never spawn camped and always respawned by my team. -“Village” map seemed very similar to Black Ops “Jungle Map” with an added Cavarn/Huge cave. -Facebook integration was already built-in to the “after-action” report when scrolled all the way to the right however it required you to log-in. -When spectating in 3rd-person, there is no “Texture Loading” delay like there was in Black Ops. -MW3 Multiplayer is the best CoD yet in my opinion. -“Kill Confirmed” WILL dominate. Best gameplay mode. PERIOD. -The Perk & Killstreak list we LEAKED back on August 18th was real 😉
Spec-Ops: -Being a huge Zombie fan, I thought Spec-Ops was better than zombies in my opinion. -Captures the tention of being “over-run” like in zombies. -You have to make a mad dash to the armories between rounds. -Felt like we were fighting for our lives. -Originally we were upset when they announced only 2-players, but now we can tell it was clearly designed as a “buddy system”. -No way it would work with 4-players, “suspense” would be lost. -Spec-Ops was the talk of the show, everyone we talked to “liked” multiplayer but “loved” Spec-Ops.

Visual Observations: -The ACOG and RED-DOT from COD4 return (Trijicon ACOG BAC) -402 tweeted that there were 2 different MP5’s (CoD4 MP5 and the MP5K). Spec-Ops version is called the MP5k however it is visually IDENTICAL to the “Mp5” from multiplayer. -The new “Dual Scope” is now called the “Hybrid Scope”. -Hybrid scope is visually different on the SMG. No flip-up magnifier, instead it has the MW2 Red-Dot on top of a Elcan SpecterDR scope. -USP pistol makes a return for the 3rd time. It now has a Streamlight TLR2 flashlight attached. -New Colt CM901 or the “CM901” is the .308 variant based on the wide magazine. It fires and reloads EXACTLY like the Scar-H from MW2 (also a .308). -The new MP5 in singleplayer has a front grip in most of the trailers however in MP it’s missing the front grip and is not an option. -UMP is visually identical to the MW2 UMP. -AK47 visually different but fires and reloads identically to CoD4 & MW2. -Dragonuv SVD is now “modernized” -Killstreak “Strafe-Run” has 5 Apache Helicopters going straight accross the map in “V” formation. Damage similar to stealth bomber.
