YouTube personality Drift0r posted a new video today with a few new details about Advanced Warfare’s MP. Drift0r had a phone call with Michael Condrey, Sledgehammer Games’s Studio Head about some of the new features in MP. First and foremost, the gadgets and technology will be “balanced” according to Condrey. Condrey wanted to ““make it clear that they won’t be OP.” 

The Exo Suits will be featured in multiplayer, and the team at SHGames has been working on implementing the suit into MP since the start of development.

“We spent a ton of time designing them and building our game around them,” said Condrey. “Not yet ready to say exactly how they will be in multiplayer though but we didn’t spend all that design time just for the campaign.”

“We wanted to make [movement] feel familiar to other CoD games but also added a few changes. We wanted to make a really fast paced CoD game.”

“Multiplayer is a core part of our game. It is getting a lot of attention and development time,” Condrey told Drift0r. “We are not ready to reveal what gadgets will be in multiplayer.”

Condrey also informed Drift0r that both former and current CoD players, including pro players are working with the team at SHGames on the MP of Advanced Warfare. Condrey says that the team values feedback immensely and listening to both the regular community and eSports is key to them. Condrey made it clear that he understands the differentiation between the communities and types of players out there.

“Most of the dev team are former or current CoD players, some eSports guys. They played through the last few cycles. That’s why we are working hard right now to make sure everything is balanced before launch. [We] take community and eSports feedback very seriously. The game is made for you to enjoy.”

  • Not sure

    This is awesome. Assuming it really is not OP, can’t wait!

  • I’m just excited to see Pro Players are helping build this Multiplayer.

    • HenryDF

      I’m not sure. eSports and general MP are different types of playing. While I think there shouldn’t be too much of a divide between the two, I also think that they shouldn’t become the same thing.

      As long as there’s a good balance between the serious pro elements and the fun stuff (with everything fair at the same time), I’m happy.

      • Bobo

        I think they can shove esports up their arse, balance over fun is a very, very bad idea and I’m sure stifles creative new mechanics.

        I mean, imagine if Goldeneye 64 or Timesplitters 2, with all its glitches and exploits and crazy weaponry, was released now as a bland straight forward shooter?

        As long as things aren’t insanely unbalanced, they shouldn’t be too concerned.

        • bImperial

          Uh dude every COD has had some sort of balance issue in it that caused the game to not be FUN…..balance makes it more fun because you can enjoy then game instead of having to deal with assholes that pull out OP stuff that breaks the game

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      I was hesitant at first because I really don’t like it when people are in favor of e-Sports, however, when Drift0r mentioned Dr. Disrespect (forgot he was hired 3 years ago), I was ecstatic. Plus when they mentioned that they wanted a balanced game before it was even released, that got me excited.

      What they need to do with e-Sports, is make it exactly the same as how WE play the game. Similar to LoL. What we play, they play.

  • jordanxbrookes

    I was waiting all day for Drift0r to make this video, very happy indeed that Sledgehammer aren’t gonna fool around with this game, especially with the multiplayer aspect. Plus the fact that the dev team are former or current Call of Duty players means they know exactly what should be in the game and what shouldn’t be, and that they know what would be OP and so they’ll balance it out. Very pleased about Sledgehammer.

    • jooker-jr

      What does he mean by ” former cod players ” ?

      • jordanxbrookes

        Players who played Call of Duty public and eSports a lot, but don’t play as hardcore as before, that’s my guess.

        • jooker-jr

          Hmmmm. Interesting

          • Keshav Bhat

            He means people like Dr.Disrespect. He was a former player, but now he’s a developer.

  • Damn son

    This is what i’m talking about! Developers that cares and listens. I have a good feeling for this game.

    • Damn son

      About*

  • kyr95

    Ok so far Sledgehammer has done everything right! I have high hopes for this game 🙂

  • Are they going to release the other gameplay of the game?

    • jordanxbrookes

      Maybe next month, before multiplayer is revealed?

      • Hopefully earlier.

        • Michael

          That’ll ruin the hype for most people. Temptation and patience is a virtue! ????????

          • that will make the hype bigger, actually.

          • Michael

            True I’m a sucker for that comment! I want MP now!!!

      • That’d probably be their co-op mode.

        • TheShadowReaper

          i really want the co-op mode to be dino mode. i really do.

    • Keshav Bhat

      Not likely. They have never released footage of what was shown behind doors in the past.

      • Really? Well… I’m sad now.

        • Keshav Bhat

          Sadly, yeah. They were both fantastic missions. But, they have never uploaded videos of those. Sorry guys

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        This is why I want to do YouTube, I get to see shit early lol.

  • WTL27

    I think this pretty much confirms that ‘super-jumps’ will be in multi-player.

  • Michael

    This is very good news. Now I feel relieved a little bit now because I can’t imagine half the stuff we saw in the campaign portion of advanced warfare being implemented into the multiplayer portion. Just please keep wall climbing, invisibility/cloaking, and dogging/dashing out of multiplayer and ill be happy.

    • maybe

      Considering that those are all the exo suit abilities i doubt it.

      • Michael

        I know ??????

        • jooker-jr

          I think climbing is kinda good

  • xLowkeyBAMZ

    did he say fast paced COD :-))))))))), one of the reasons i dont like ghosts its because i can go minutes without seeinf anybody on maps like stone heaven or whiteout

  • Josh

    If NadeShot says it’s GOOD, its gotta be good…

    • jordanxbrookes

      Matt is love, Matt is life.

      • Shouldn’t it be Or Nah?!

        • jordanxbrookes

          I dunno I saw someone post this image on his FB page and copied it 😛

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Basing your opinion from one person who’s in e-Sports? Lol. He never even said it’s good for the general public, he said it’s good for e-Sports. But I like and respect Nadeshot.

      • Tom-E

        lol they got invited to look at the new features for e-sports not the whole game , so there is no way they can tell if the MP is good for the public or not. and from what I know most of the pro’s play pub matches in their spare time so trust me they don’t only care about themselves.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          No, the competitive guys saw a glimpse of the ENTIRE multiplayer. They played the ENTIRE multiplayer against the devs.

    • 2302guy

      Uh nadeshot is a Activision corporate whore. They pay him to say its good imbeciles.

      • MichiganerE

        Thank you!

      • jordanxbrookes

        So why did he say Ghosts is the worst Call of Duty game he’s ever played? Doesn’t sound like he’s saying something good there, imbecile?

        • MichiganerE

          Explain this. Why would he go from saying he’s not going to play CoD anymore, to liking AW all of a sudden?

          • hi

            umm excuse me .. but umm when did nadeshot say he’s not going to play CoD anymore? . even before he got invited to test AW out he did not say that at all , or in any way meant he wasn’t going to play CoD. he stated that ghosts was trash , which is. anyhow he probably really liked AW because what I can tell SHG is actually trying to make a really good CoD and if nadeshot’s hyped then that means AW may turn out to be a great game.

          • MichiganerE

            Why the hell are you replying to an 8 day old comment?

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        When he says the game is good, he means e-Sports and e-Sports only. That’s all he cares about. He’s a good guy, but he doesn’t care about how public matches are whatsoever.

        • hi

          umm are you nadeshot? , you don’t know what he does and doesn’t care about. and nadeshot and the rest of the pro players where invited to test out the public side of the MP and some of the e-sports features in MP so he’s saying the whole MP of AW is going to be good along with the e-sports features. just because they are pro’s and play a lot of the e-sports doesn’t mean they don’t play public matches in their spare time, they play a lot of pub games when they are not playing a league match or scrimming.

  • | Coop X

    Cant wait to try this cod out:) whos ready for it?!?! all I want is not clamores/IED type crap then in my opinion it will be a playable cod!

    • jordanxbrookes

      Claymores are great, my favourite piece of equipment, I agree IEDs have to go.

      • | Coop X

        yeah I guess because claymores are extremely easy to dodge just got to play on your toes… but yeah ieds gone…also none of that tracker finder, target finder shit… im fine with thermals but if ads and flashed you need to be stunned longer

        • jordanxbrookes

          Definitely, no target finder/tracker sight bullsh*t, the main thing that pissed me off the most in Black Ops 2 was noobs sat at the back of the map on Nuketown (And other maps too) with an LMG Target Finder, GGRRRRRR THEY MAKE ME SO MAD!!!!! *Turns into Hulk* HULK SMASH TARGET FINDER P*SSY!!!

          • | Coop X

            yep pretty much lol…and plllleassse back to reg uav where you get one and it scans the mini map for you

          • jordanxbrookes

            Agreed. I hope they bring back the Nuke from MW2 but make it either a 25 or a 30 gunstreak reward. The SatCom was a nice idea on paper, but in terms of gameplay, it’s crap, simple as that. We need to have the original UAV back ASAP.

          • | Coop X

            yep totally agree…and with the nuke thing my idea was have the nuke as a selectable kill streak at a 40 where you end the game calling it in like in mw2 and you can use kill streaks to obtain and then have a 25 gun streak nuke type kill streak that is not selectable and you call in and it kills whole team but game goes on.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Basically the best of both worlds, I get you 🙂

          • | Coop X

            yeah:) I miss getting that nuke and calling it in, in mw2 like that’s right bitches I ended the game before it was over! and in mw3/ghosts getting the kem strike/moab like yep I killed you guys 25 times only with my gun suck on that!! (btw I judged you wrong b4, im that “battlefield fanboy” that raged on a few past posts:)…)

          • jordanxbrookes

            I thought it was you haha it doesn’t matter anymore, yeah just hearing that announcer shout “ENEMY NUKE INCOMING!!!!”

          • | Coop X

            yep and im like “well fvck” haha then I try doing the pain killer glitch where you don’t die during the glitch lol

          • jordanxbrookes

            And then everyone’s like, “WHAT? THAT GUY DIDN’T DIE? HACKER!!!” lol

          • | Coop X

            pretty much!! ahhh that game was 80% perfect if they didn’t have noobtubes and dangerclose!

          • Batman

            UAV is OP

          • | Coop X

            so is counter uav lol…that’s why there is both to use against each other

          • | Coop X

            but you thing they NEED to have back is nuke killstreak or moab something with a 25 gun streak!! or just mw2 style nuke! but at a 35 kill streak

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            There’s a reason why I said Black Ops 2 is terrible. MW3 might be slightly worse, but BO2 had so much bullshit. I can’t stand it.

          • jordanxbrookes

            It did, do you know my mate Shady said that C4, EMP grenades, Rem. 870, Target Finder, Snipers, LMGs etc. were all balanced? That is a complete lie.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            WTF? I know that’s his opinion but damn, he must have a very light stress level while he’s playing. I scream so loud at that game. There’s a reason why I don’t play it lol.

          • jordanxbrookes

            He also comes on the CharlieINTEL comment sections from time-to-time too so you might bump into him.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I’ve probably seen him around.

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    Fuck it I’m buying it. This is music to my ears. All the negative shit I said about this game? e-Sports and all? Yeah, I take it all back, I’m now hyped to the EXTREMEEEEEE.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Glad you feel that way friend, welcome aboard, *CHOO CHOO* 🙂

      • Dragon

        I honestly cant wait either

    • Duke of hazard

      YEAAAAHHHHHH!

    • jooker-jr

      Hey , we have the same photo 🙂

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Nah we don’t. 🙂

        • jooker-jr

          I changed it

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Ah lol.

    • Rorke File

      Still waiting…..

  • Jerry D’Erasmo

    Just like how there was “Dedicated Servers”, “No Quickscoping” & “Death Streaks” in COD Ghosts right? LMAO. Just wait to play the game for yourself. The developmental teams for all three companies have lied so much, its actually nauseating. I don’t care who interacts with who or who posted a video…just make the game balanced, fair, and fun. BO2 & Ghosts did so many things wrong that Sledgehammer might be facing a battle they can not win

    • Keshav Bhat

      No one played the game in the video. Condrey spoke to Driftor over a phone call.

      • Jerry D’Erasmo

        I never mentioned anyone playing the game if you’d open your eyes and read what I wrote. Don’t listen to ANYONE, wait to play the game for yourself. These people are ones not to be trusted

        • Keshav Bhat

          Sorry, you seem to have edited your comment after I commented. My fault. Yes, afterall, it’s all about your own opinion of the game. They aren’t listening to anyone. This guy is the studio head of SHGames, so he’s not just ‘anyone’.

          • jasonxbrookes

            Hate to say it, but listening to the studio head is even worse. What is he going to say? “Nah, our MP is going to be pretty shitty, unbalanced, boring garbage.” Of course he’s going to praise good things to raise confidence in the product. Common business practice, you know.

            I’m not trusting shit til I see a full MP breakdown with real, unscripted gameplay from someone other than a CoD fanboy like Tmartn.

          • Ryumoau

            go troll somewhere else.

          • jasonxbrookes

            How is that trolling? It’s common sense.
            Why would you trust EVERYTHING a person says about their own product that they are trying to sell to you? That’s just being an ignorant consumer.

            Don’t forget, everyone believed in Infinity Ward before MW3 and Ghosts. Look how those games turned out: Worst games of the franchise.

          • MichiganerE

            Yep.

          • lol

            Tmartn being a CoD fanboy .. LMAO , lol he may enjoy CoD but I am pretty sure he plays a ton of different games all the time . I don’t whats up with you wanting anybody but youtuber’s or pro players playing at the reveal.. it is a real unscripted gameplay all the time anyways xD

          • jasonxbrookes

            I’ve never heard Tmartn criticize CoD for ANYTHING. (even with the past 3 games being complete shit) Therefore, he is a fanboy.

    • lool

      There was no death streaks in ghosts…

    • hi

      all three companies have lied so much? , I hope that by three you don’t mean SHG included , I mean sure they helped with one of the CoD’s but this is there first CoD game’s so to include them would be so pointless, and yeah they are making the game fair and all by interacting with people. anyhow yeah people should wait till they play the game for themselves , but from what we have heard so far it’s pretty hard not to say that SHG is doing a really outstanding job.

  • I’m glad that they are going to make an effort to try and balance things before a game is released, but I don’t think it’s possible to be honest. If you look at other games not just Call of Duty when their game is out, there is bound to be something that is overpowered in any game when it’s released on the first day.

    I just hope that they don’t nerf the sniper rifles in this game like they did with Ghost and they actually let people who want to challenge themselves in sniping to do so. I really do hope also that they manage the spawning because I don’t want to spawn in front of someone, behind someone, or near anybody. I would like safe spawns.

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    Not much new info besides the fact that SH is listening and interacting with the community. This shows they know what the fans want, since they are fans, and they’re taking all feedback into consideration. Pretty cool that they actually called Drift0r on his phone casually, though. That’s a really cool thing to do.

  • Poplur33

    Thanks charlie intel for linking the vid. YouTube for iPhone 5 got an update and it’s freezing all the time and takes forever just to watch one vid. Hopefully it gets fixed fast

  • Batman

    I just hope we will have:
    -CTF(BO1 style)
    -Jump boost(with recharge time)
    -Cloak(you need to keep on moving)
    -Super punch instead of knifing
    -Being able to punch cars and they would move, maybe even use it to kill enemies
    -Super speed for limited time
    -No HUD
    -Perks are now exo upgrades
    -Longer TTK
    -Everything is reset after you prestige & you get rewarded 4 prestiging

    • jooker-jr

      I don’t agree on clocking and super speed

      But u have great ideas

    • Grenada!

      I agree with everything apart from Cloak. Cloak will be abused even if you have to move to keep it going, silencer and cloak will be the most over used thing in the game and I’m calling that now if they put cloak in the game.

  • k5berry

    Man, this game looks awesome. SHG is becoming so hyped and charismatic they could say “oh btw the sky is rainbow colored in AW” and everyone would be like “Cool bruh”

  • culo

    yep

    • jordanxbrookes

      Is that you behind the sixth one?

  • Choppabro2psn

    Seems odd that Michael condrey would randomly call driftor. I’m not denying what driftor said though, in fact I truly believe him. Just seems out of the ordinary, don’t you think?

  • jooker-jr

    If they said : AW will run on dedicated servers I will pre order this game

  • Derrick Wingler

    “We wanted to make a really fast paced COD game.” I already like this more than Ghosts. I can’t believe they thought it was a good idea to make gameplay slower Ghosts.

    • fires

      probably because before ghosts, everyone bitched about how easymode smgs were in blops2

  • NextGenNose

    Hopefully they’ll learn the mistakes Ghosts had made. We don’t need another equipment like the IED or a Guard Dog killstreak that 1-hitKOs someone from 10 feet away. Speaking of killstreaks… I really hope SH brings out some interesting and well-balanced ones, Ghosts’ killstreaks were meh.

    • jooker-jr

      The campers and that dog ruined ghosts MP

  • Munir Fernandez

    What I think is that the game is going to have the exo suit is going to be linked to the the perk system. For example Exo Type 1 would have specifically some perks Type unique to that exo suit.

    Another thing is thet they should bring back demolition, sabotage and CTF. It was an error of Activision taking this out.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Sabotage was a great game mode 🙁

    • jooker-jr

      Also if they find a way to make spawn trap impossible this game will be the best cod ever and IMO GOTY

  • VVFZ

    I guarantee that the 3 round burst weapon in this game will be OP at launch, just like in the past Call of Dutys

    • jordanxbrookes

      Well the SWAT-556 wasn’t really OP.

      • VVFZ

        I know.
        M16
        M16
        FAMAS
        TYPE 95
        MSBS

        • jooker-jr

          But who knows ?

        • Xecho

          MSBS is still OP tho

  • chiefsfan005

    If everyone is OP then no one is OP

    • Ryumoau

      lol reminds me of the Incredibles movie.

  • Brother Lili

    There’s no way this game could get any worse than Ghosts. Ghosts should have been a step-up from MW3 but it’s more like a major step-down. Even MW3 is more balanced and fast-paced than Ghosts :/

  • Ryumoau

    So glad he took the time to call Driftor like that. They are really serious about making this game great. Hopefully this means we might get an official multiplayer reveal sooner than previous years. 🙂

  • 111AlaN111

    DON’T BUY COD AGAIN… NOT AGAIN…THEY ALREADY F*CKED UP MANY TIMES…MORE CAMPERS… DON’T BUY…

    SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (PREORDERED)

    • UpRiftCOD

      Lay off the coke buddy

  • TheShadowReaper

    how the fuck did this post got to be a hating section about TmarTn and Ali-A? the title and the article says about COD:AW being developed with the multiplayer in mind from the very start, including the exos. wtf is wrong with people these days. dont T and A get enough hate already? geez…

    • Ryumoau

      agreed 🙂

  • Dylan

    As long as it’s fast paced without stuff like IEDs and OP stealth perks it should be fine. Also punishing players who stay in one area for too long

    • I admire players that can “lock down” certain areas of a map and cut of several entry and exit points by using their headset and weapon only. It’s skill. And to say it isn’t is foolish.

      It takes an even skillful player to stop him in his tracks before he gets the high kill streaks/MOAB/KEM. This is one of the few reasons I love playing CoD.

      Polishing your gun in a dark corner waiting for enemies for several minutes to walk by is a completely different matter.. and yes, that should be addressed.

  • Goten

    Where are your grains of salt, guys? Yes it’s excellent news, but until we actually see some multiplayer footage/gameplay, we cannot simply make assumptions. Implements, such as new gadgets and technology are subject to constant change and tweaks, right up to the release date. It’s a real struggle to find the balance, with so many factors present. Cohesion is difficult to achieve in terms of the exo-abilities, specifically its influences on map design. For the most part, we should receive a fairly balanced multiplayer that suit our various purposes!

    • ccrows

      100% Agree with you about let’s see the MP Reveal first – which usually comes in Aug.

      Normally by now I have COD preordered, but just too many questions this year – (including “which” console to preorder AW on) assuming that the MP doesn’t look too Halo-ish to me…

    • kyr95

      Absolutely agree with you. We’ll just have to wait for some gameplay for the multiplayer. A lot of people are concerned due to last installment’s fiasco, and i cant say that i blame them. Though the part of this news, that excites most people- and it should -is the fact that the developers are listening to the community, both the public and the esports players, and are trying to make the best game for us and for them, since theyre too cod players and fans of the franchise. We have to wait for the full game to see if it’s truly balanced, though it really is not as easy as it sounds, especially this year, as like you said, Shg has to also implement correctly the exo-suits with the design of the maps. Thats a difficult task for them and all we can do is support them. My basic point still stands though, that although we should not be already be super optimistic that we’ll get a perfect game ( no game is perfect 😛 ), we should be excited that Glen and Michael and the rest of the staff, are listening to us and are trying to do whats best for us too. Even if this game, doesnt fully succeed ( to be honest, i doubt it ), i admire them for that, and i think i speak behalf of the whole community, that we cant thank them enough for these effort and hard work all these 3 years.

      • CopperandNickel

        True that. People need to open their eyes and ears, and listen to themselves, instead of basing their assumptions on something that is isn’t ‘officially’ confirmed. Key word – ‘Officially’.

      • HuskySpoof

        Yep. All we have to do is wait and see for ourselves! 😉

      • Run N Gunning Camper’s Twin

        Just as long as camping is a viable option in Advanced Warfare, I’m all good. Yet, I’ll still receive plenty of flak from those who lack the ability to deal with my type of player. It’ll be enjoyable to witness their uncontrollable raging and all that good stuff. We’ll just have to wait and see. A camper’s motto: ‘Patience is a virtue’

        • Wiz

          Camping in a corner shouldn’t be a viable option but i have no problem with holding down an area of the map.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          “Run N Gun” camping is perfectly fine in my book. I don’t call your playstyle “camping” I call it “defensive play”. I hate it when I go up against that stuff especially if it’s against a full party but hey if it works do it. I just don’t like corner campers that stay in the same spot for 10 minutes and only get like 3 kills.

        • Louis

          I don’t have an issue with camping hell I do it sometimes too but when perks like amplify and sit rep pro are out there it seems like everyone I run into is in a corner with LMG spraying me out when I turn a corner. I just hope everything is more balanced in AW like it was in earlier CoD days where perks cancelled out other perks and not one perk being OP

    • The Telephone Pole

      Yes, yes. I think Sledgehammer will do a great job. I’ve always had hope for the state of the CoD series. Although the endless amounts of haters and negative opinions has sadly added a minor change to my view. Such as me kind-of not liking Ghosts and MW3. Stay strong folks, the gamer society seems to be adopting a hate-CoD law. Don’t let them brainwash you. Let your opinions be purely your own.

    • TheShadowReaper

      yeah i completely agree. most of them are already too deep on the hype train that a grain of salt isnt enough. maybe a whole ocean worth of salt help them but its too late for that now. dont get me wrong though, i love Sledgehammer for their previous work (Dead Space) and their communication with the community is something that we have never seen a COD developer doing so much (apart from the beloved Vonderhaar ofc). i’m really optimistic that SHG will produce a quality title, the real worry though is, is it going to be this amazing best COD title that we have been craving for so long? that remains to be answered this november.

      • kyr95

        Yeah indeed. We’ll just have to wait and see. As i said though, im very proud of the work that SHG has done- every last bit of it. Im pretty sure that the game will deliver, maybe not as much as some people want, but it’ll definitely deliver, in my opinion. Personally, i havent been this excited since Cod 4’s release, although im still holding my self from declaring it “the best cod” just yet.

        • Grenada!

          Don’t be proud of them yet, wait until you play their game first.

      • Grenada!

        I don’t think it will be “that CoD” but I still think it could be good if SHG just listen and please balance the game. They also need to give the fans a reason to keep on coming back to get their CoD fix, because with Ghosts, I get bored after the first minute.

      • Devlin

        Indeed. November is the moment of truth.

      • UW0TM8

        We should kick everyone out of their compartments on the ‘hype train’, so that they can actually appreciate the game for what it is; a few months after its release.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Vonderhaar doesn’t give a shit about the community lol, all of the Black Ops 2 patches were with pros in mind.

        • VVFZ

          Which made the game perfect. If only they could’ve made the target finder useless it would’ve been even better. Target Finder LMGs almost broke Black Ops 2

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            The balance patches were atrociously illogical. “Let’s buff the LMGs that were already overpowered and nerf the machine pistols, Remington, and snipers a LITTLE bit”.

          • VVFZ

            Hmm, not sure they buffed the LMGs.. But the machine pistols were good for close range, the snipers got destroyed in the patch, and the Remington is fine to avoid as long as you can use an SMG to fight back or keep your distance. Most people only use the Remington on nuketown.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I remember the patch for the LMGs during the first few months. The KAP-40 and B23R are still unbalanced and can still kill people at 20m and the snipers are still easy to use. The Remington is the most used shotgun and it’s insanely OP.

        • TheShadowReaper

          yeah, cause its all Vonderhaar’s fault right? you guys just blame the first guy you see in front of you. such retard.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Vonderhaar has a major say. EVERY SINGLE competitive thing in BO2 was Vonderhaar’s idea because he hung out with hastr0 at some event. He’s the game director for the multiplayer. He’s pretty high up.

          • TheShadowReaper

            and how does competitive affect you? you play BO2 on the usual modes. ranked play uses different servers than the ones you play in. and no, the game is fine. still being a retard just to be a retard.

        • hi

          all I see you writing in every post is how much you bash on the competitive side of CoD , if you have a problem with it , go complain somewhere else I’m tired of you’re whining .

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Don’t tell me what to do and I’ll post where I please. Maybe if competitive wouldn’t be so retarded, I wouldn’t be “complaining” about it, how about YOU go somewhere else? Just shut the fuck up and go on with your day.

          • hi

            retarded? you’re the retarded one here. the competitive side of the game has been helping the game get bigger , you’re literally the only one I’ve seen on this site bashing the thing for no reason , you shouldn’t even post here , you’re dull , ignorant and you blame every tiny thing that pisses you off . so how about you sir , shut the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck up and take you’re sorry ass somewhere else

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            XD competitive fanboy. Way to prove your retardation.

            It’s been helping the game get bigger? Oh really? How? Last time I checked, the people who are a part or just became a part of the community have played CoD for a while. Competitive hasn’t helped CoD grow in the slightest. Did Ghosts lose sales because of competitive? No. Did Black Ops 2 GAIN sales because of competitive? No, in fact, it LOST sales compared to MW3, which sold 26 million, and Black Ops 2 sold around 23 million.

            I shouldn’t be posting here? ORLY? Why? Because my opinion differs from yours? Grow up. Not everyone supports the e-Sports community. In fact, the e-Sports community are full of stuck up pricks like you. Shut the fuck up, move on, and stop being so biased.

          • hi

            oh so now we are going off of how many sells the game gets? , you sir make me laugh hard, but in reality it has been how many people have stayed to play call of duty just cause they found playing competitively was fun especially with friends , oh yeah I forgot you don’t know that and I don’t either but I’ve seen more people playing gb’s then the public playlist’s. anyhow I’m not a fan-boy dur dur I am a supporter.
            and to be exact you shouldn’t be posting here not because you’re opinion is different from mine , or because you don’t support the e-sports community , but to say that the e-sports community are full of pricks makes you even worse than a prick..
            good day to you .

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I don’t suppose you know what Drama Alert is lmao, the e-Sports community is full of arrogance.

            Public matches range up to 100,000 daily users online (1-2 million during Black Ops 1 and MW3’s launches). Like you, I have the right to post anywhere I want.

          • hi

            drama alert oooo.. like he knows everybody and everything.
            & keep telling yourself that pal.

        • Astros Legacy

          Yet BO2 in a lot of peoples eyes was a really fun game to play aside from connection issues and QSing and going into Ghosts was mainly made for you pub players. I believe a good competitive game for us is an even better game for you pub players, but thats just my opinion.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Nah, I disagree. Competitive players play dumbed down CoD. They don’t play what the public players like me play at all. They don’t even play 1/10th of the game, so why should the games be built with them in mind?

          • hi

            you mean they play smart up CoD, cause for what I know they are professionals at the game meaning if you didn’t know that they play at a higher level then pub players, pub lobbies and playing with pub players is what almost killed the game for some people , a lot of pub players ruined the game by doing the typical such as camping , using a bunch of explosives , riot shield, peaking corners with lmg’s . honestly pub players play the dumbest way possible and that’s why some people migrated to halo or BF . so if you think what you play is good then you’re just another one of those typical noobs that sit in corners , which is pathetic .

    • Codfan

      Completely agree. This time last year so many people were mesmerised at Ghosts and look how that turned out. People also thought Titanfall would be the greatest game ever created and now it’s completely dead. Hype blinds these days and I take everything that AW delivers with a pinch of salt. It has so much potential and I can’t wait to see how it runs maxed out on my PC but SH have to deliver in gameplay terms of the highest quality. COD is the biggest franchise and most lucrative in gaming at the minute so I am expecting nothing less that astonishing. I wont be made a mug of with Ghosts as that was just a terrible game from a shameful studio. I also don’t want to see the brand degraded with tacky field orders and Snoop Dogg crappy material.

      • kyr95

        You gotta admit though that SHG is doing great work so far 🙂 We shall see if it will deliver

      • HuskySpoof

        If I could like this a thousand times, I would! Ghosts is a great example of how too much hype ends in disappointment and failure. People’s expectations are too high, as a result of this.

    • VVFZ

      My grains of salt are usually on my french fries

      • Hamza

        Haha.

      • Abraham

        You a salted your fries. How in salting.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Damn, those puns made me want to do a summer-salt.

        • VVFZ

          I like to as-salt my fries with ketchup as I devour them

          • Abraham

            I relish the fact the you’ve mustard up the strength to ketchup.

          • VVFZ

            I can’t compete you win ;(

    • Xecho

      1. Fries
      2. Onion Rings
      3. Sometimes foods that are dull like mashed potatoes

    • Common Sense

      So a big whig calls a youtuber to talk about the game in hopes that the youtuber will dispel “mis-information” about the game. Well ain’t that dandy. Instead of doing an AMA on reddit or doing a live interview possibly on twitch or something, he calls up a youtuber and has a private conversation with him. Just bleh so done with these stupid game companies that could literally give two craps about the community as long as the money keeps flowing.

    • Kanji

      Yes! This.

  • Grenada!

    “gadgets will not be OP” Let me play the game before you go out and say that, SHG. The amount of times developers say that the game will be balanced and then it’s a cluster fuck of OP weapons etc.

    • I really hope the Exo Suits will be adjoined to the games Perk system, that would be cool and would definitely make sense.

      Doing certain challenges would unlock select abilities and gadgets for that Prestige/Squad member, with a maximum number of abilities/gadgets selectable for each one or at any given time.

      Before Ghosts came out I remember talk of a Perk system that used standard perks, then a pro version, then an Elite version of that Perk, continuing on from MW3’s Pro perk system.

      I hope SHG shows IW how to make a Call of Duty.

  • Kill Denied

    Didn’t everyone hate Sledgehammer Games before the reveal of Advanced Warfare.

    • No.

      Idiot.

      • Kill Denied

        Why are you angry? I was asking a question.

        • I’ve never seen hate comments towards SHG. Skepticism yeah, hate no. In fact, it’s still rather a grey area as to what they actually contributed to MW3.

          Some people just like to chat shit, troll, etc.. That’s how you’re comment comes across IMO.

          • Kill Denied

            I strictly remember people hating on SHG due to their involvement with Modern Warfare 3.

  • Petey

    I really hope this cod makes up for the joke that is ghosts.

    You go online now and theres barely anyone on any more some playlists have less than 100 players

  • RoyL-CODxProdigy

    So what we know is that the multiplayer will be “fast paced ” , according to Condrey.

  • Hydrox

    I want this game, like, right now

  • Wraith

    Drift0r’s the best. Big youtuber’s get info from Charlieintel. Charlieintel gets info from Drift0r.

  • MrTheRevertz

    me personally I think advanced warfare will be the best game since modern warfare 2

  • I hope that the maps in AW will be good.
    Tight, playable maps, like Dome or Hardhat from MW3. Not unlike Ghosts maps, where you run around the map looking for a player to kill, just to get your throat chewed by Guard Dog.

  • Also hoping for a nice blood screen, when you get hurt. Not just jelly all over your face.
    We really need something new and intriguing.

    • jooker-jr

      I want more GORE

  • Found a neat article which confirms some nice campaign features, and more info about the missions, never heard before!

    • Ryumoau

      cool thanks

  • Sami Ul Haque

    I think that if the mp gameplay will be good only then will i preorder

    But i hate the fact they release all the bonuses on game later

  • ApexOTR X

    Well i think there on the right track guys, dont put any pressure on them there doing as much as possible already for by listening to what we have to say and thats a bonus right there, keep up the good work SHG

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    IT’S MY BIRTHDAYYYYY (I’m 20). Wish this news would have came out on my birthday lol.

    • Ryumoau

      happy birthday 🙂

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        THANK YOU 😀

  • Acadius Alexander

    I am more interested in the campaign thus far with AW. After all that silly hype with the fish AI and Riley and their “Ghosts is the next gen experience” claims, I just don’t get excited as I used to for Call of Duty. I was foolish and bought Ghosts with season pass, otherwise, I would have traded it in but I feel I have to get my money’s worth per se. Occasionally, I have some fun matches but lately it’s been “host migration” messages on my Xbox One.
    And now that school is out, all I hear are screaming kids who think is “adult” to start insulting lobbies that are quiet. Don’t even get me started on the adults who ruin the community.
    Sorry for the rant but again, I’m looking forward to the story of AW.

    • Xecho

      1 reason why you get host migrations
      You bought an Xbox One.

      • MichiganerE

        Buying an Xbox One has nothing to do with host migration.

      • Acadius Alexander

        Yeah. You might have a point there. I enjoy my X1 but my PS4 gets far more use when it comes to gaming all together.

  • KingSlayer

    How is this news? Everyone should have known by now that exo suits would be in multiplayer

  • HoneyBadger

    Same old Shit every year.. I remember when IW Said That Multiplayer was ” The most Ambitious thing they have ever done”… The Reason They dont want to release a Beta is because everyone will see how shit of a game it actually is before they have to waste money on it… By the Time YOU have already wasted your money The Devs are Sitting in their Pent Houses while getting millions of dollars gave to them… I still wouldnt buy this even is Morgan Freeman was in it… Nothing changes Just COD Fanboys Come screaming every year… Same old Shit we will all hate it by January Next year

    • TrackHo

      Agreed but watch out for the brainwashed fanboys on this site that would attack you without reason just to defend their precious video game series.

      • Ryumoau

        We aren’t stupid, we know you two are the same poster. You don’t even take the time to make the accounts different by changing the profile pics. Thats just lazy trolling. :/

        • TrackHo

          You’re the only stupid one here, a lot of people hate one of the worst series ever to grace platforms besides me. There is no denying that.

    • Ryumoau

      Yawn….same old comment every article.

      Edit: and stop thumbs upping your own comment. It just makes you look like a desperate idiot (which you are).

    • Duke of hazard

      Same stupid comment, different idiot.

    • LOL

      how are they supposed to release a beta when the MP reveal hasn’t even been release you’re logic makes no sense XD

  • Aldo

    I don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade but I bet every developer in the past would have told you. “we’re working really hard on developing a game where everything is balanced etc.”

    I’ll believe it when I see it!

  • imthealphadog

    Listen up people. All that they are trying to do is bring you the best content available in their power. Nothing is perfect and never will be. Its their job and I can only imagine the blood sweat and tears they put in. Its like a baby one step at a time. Better yet metamorphosis from and idea to reality. I can only imagine the process. I know I cant do it,and not to many people can. I tip my hat to all involved. Thank you very much.
    Much appreciated. [email protected] imthealphadog

  • george95915

    Can we just see multiplayer gameplay already, and I would like to hear about the co-op mode?
