“We need to bring it back!” and by it, we mean the original theater mode from Black Ops.

We’re sure Infinity Ward had a perfectly good technical reason for removing all these features in order to improve MW3 performance but it came at a great cost. Treyarch nearly perfected it when they introduced it in Black Ops.. Here’s hoping that it returns unchanged.

What was removed in MW3:
-Dolly Cam
-Remove names option
-View other players in 1st Person
-Ability to see the scoreboard while watching a Theater clip
-Ability to change Theater Mode’s control scheme
-Theater lobby (Ability to invite friends to watch the same theater clip with you)

The one positive enhancement that came out of MW3 was the ability to have 24 save slots (with an ELiTE subscriptions that is)

What do you want to see return/not return/change in Black Ops 2? Let us know in the comments below.

    I’d like to see the Panic Knife issue change as well as Deathstreaks, Support Package and Lag Compensation go away.

    • I think a lot of people would agree with you

      • Rabas2004

        Haha yea

    • gibbymanx

      Lag compensation was in Black Ops and worked well, it’s jut how MW3 did it, support is also OK, so long as they take out all the high ones.

    The only feature from MW3 theatre I like is at least an option to show killcams.

    I think for the next Call Of Duty, there should be zero death streaks. Those ruin the game. I think the currency system should return as well. The currency system seemed to work well the multiplayer and such. I would love Wager Matches to return as well. But another idea that I think would work well is not too many weapons. Have only like 4 different assault rifles that are all automatic accept for one to be like a three round burst. So that way there isn’t such of a variety of weapons that n00bs can use. Also to have all of the weapons (from crappy to good) to be available when Create A Class does. Those are my ideas.

    • gibbymanx

      Agree with the first half of the stuff, but nothing really with the guns, I think there should be a variety and unlocking stuff makes it fun, a prestige shop could help with that as well if they did it again, or something similar.

    let us make machinima’s as a mode in bo2

    Zombies is a must. While Spec Ops is fun, I haven’t spent nearly as many hours playing it as I did with zombies.
    I agree that the Theatre Mode in BLOPS is better than MW3, other than the 24 save slots and quality. The fact that killcams show up every single time in MW3 theatre drives me insane.
    Oh and bring back Woods!!

      i totally agree with you but what i think is that what they should do is put theater for every part of the game so you can show tricks in the campaign and crazy escapes in zombies

  • Markthepark

    NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! PLEASE DO NOT LISTEN!!!!!IT HAS BEEN PROVEN THAT BLACK OPS WAS SO LAGGY AND SHITTY BECAUSE OF THEATER. IW TOOK OUT THOSE TO MAKE THE GAME NOT SHITTY LIKE BLACK OPS. LIKE I SAID ITS BEEN PROVEN

  • Treyarch is what i dont want back in bo2

  • Bryson

    i dont understand why in none of the theater modes (black ops or mw3) can u re-arrange your videos. like move them around so u can put ur favourite video firsts. its simple to fix but they continue to not do it.

  • Broncosnfl15

    i was just making a modern warfare 3 video for youtube and 1 thing i did notice is that when i did render it to elite and youtube it went directly to my computer so if they can keep that kind of speed and keep the original black ops theater featers but integrate elite it would be just the best thing for youtube and gamers ever! 🙂

  • Bryson

    i also want them to be able to edit videos even after they’re done. so if u want to make a sniping montage or anything like that u can take parts from other videos and put them in one clip to make a montage.

  • J_jdogg

    I think when you upload videos you should get more than 30 seconds of game time. 30 seconds isnt enough to post to http://www.callofdutytube.com or you tube
