Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 leaks have revealed lots of new details for the fans to anticipate.
Call of Duty (CoD) is one of the most-played video game series all around the world. With titles focusing on World Wars to futuristic wars, it claims to be the best-selling franchise in the world.
Now the details of Call of Duty’s 2022 installment have been leaked. This might be a little surprising as the video game is still months away from release. This installment was thought to be called Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Later, it was confirmed to be the sequel to Modern Warfare 2019.
One of the major developers of Call of Duty, Treyarch, has allegedly pushed the next installment’s date to 2024 due to their intervention in 2020 on Black Ops Cold War. This means that the 2022’s installment will have to suffice for the fans for the entirety of the next two years.
All that we have known so far is that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will revolve around waging war against drug cartels in South America. It is said that the future title will have brand new modes. These will include the modes that have been inspired by the video game Rainbow Six Siege. This was the extent of our knowledge.
Now, however, new details have come to light. Let’s explore, what has been revealed to date on Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
New Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Leaks About the Perks System
The main source of these leaks is TheGhostofHope, a dedicated Call of Duty Player and a leaker on Twitter as well. He is a reliable source of information as the details released in the past by him have turned out to be accurate.
On March 13, he posted a thread of tweets on Twitter. Here he confirmed some features of the game which were still rumors till now. Also, he brought out multiple aspects of the game’s multiplayer option that no one knew before.
Arguably the most important of these is surrounding the Perks system. Till now, players were only allowed to choose 3. But this time in CoD Modern Warfare 2, it will be 4 perks.
TheGhostofHope said in the tweet that he was ‘Not giving details on specific perks,’ but was discussing the way the perk system would work: ‘the way MWII is approaching perks is that you can choose 4 PERKS.’ He explained the meaning of this: ‘This means you get to choose 2 in the first column. 1 in the second column. 1 in the third column.’ Describing the first column more specifically, he said, ‘From what I was told the first column is more of choosing your playstyle.’
Following up on this thread to clarify any doubts that might have arisen on CoD Modern Warfare 2 perks, TheGhostofHope said, ‘You cannot change it to being 2 perks being able to be chosen in a different column. It’s ONLY 2 perks in the first column.’
One more piece of information that reached us about the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Perk system is that in the upcoming title, perks are not required for the players to acquire a minimap. In real life (or game), this means that unsilenced weapons now show up as red dots for everybody. “Classic Minimap is indeed present in Modern Warfare II,” they said. “No perk necessary.”
Now that the good part of the leak has been discussed, let’s jump on over to the bad part. The part of the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 leak that people might not be too happy about is that Last Stand, which is the ability of a player that allows them to drop to a downed state with a pistol, is present in the game as a Field Upgrade.
TheGhostofHope said this on the topic: ‘Gonna post it cause why the f*** not but Last Stand is currently in Modern Warfare II and functions as a field upgrade instead of a perk…’ As can be discerned, the community is not too happy about this. TheGhostofHope expressed this in the same tweet: ‘Hope Infinity Ward removes this based on criticism before launch.’
They’ve rounded the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 release off because of the resonating posts about the maps. They’ve claimed that there will be more classic 3-lane styles. But this did not prevent Modern Warfare 2019’s maps to undergo heavy criticism.
Well, that’s all there is right now about CoD Modern Warfare 2. Though it may be looking a little ordinary at this point, one should not take this as final and check it out for themselves when it comes out.
We will update you with the new information as soon as it comes out, so keep following Gamevro.
