Michael Condrey has confirmed on Twitter that Advanced Warfare MP will feature Hardcore variations of certain game modes.

Sledgehammer Games has not confirmed as of right now which game modes will be available for players to play in hardcore mode. We’ll update as we get more information.

    Was Hardcore mode in a new CoD a surprise?

    • Elektrobanq

      I wasn’t surprised. I was hoping they would have a new kind of Hardcore in which there are no Exo-suits. I think it would be a good change of pace after playing with jetpacks all the time. Plus it seems it would be a pretty popular game type given that we are all used to playing without the ability to fly and boost around. I’m sure I’ll be able to adapt to the new armor abilities though.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        That’d be sick. It’ll be like playing two different games but with the same maps. That’d be interesting. Unlikely, but it would be a pleasant surprise.

      • Acadius Alexander

        Remember Bare Bones in Black Ops? I actually enjoyed it here and there when I wanted something different per se.

  • MichiganerE

    Modes that I think will be Hardcore:
    TDM
    FFA
    Uplink
    Domination
    CTF
    Hardpoint

    What do you guys think?

    Edit: Maybe Momentum (War) as well.

    • Don’t know about CTF, Hardpoint and Uplink. FFA, TDM and Dom will probably be in.

      • MichiganerE

        Well, I put Uplink because it’s the new mode, so maybe SHG would see how it would work in Hardcore. Hardpoint is very competitive, so that’s why I included it, so it CTF. What about Momentum?

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I think TDM, Dom, CTF, FFA, and maybe KC if it’s in the game. War and uplink don’t seem like hardcore type of game modes. We might get hardpoint, not sure.

      • MichiganerE

        KC is confirmed to be in the game, so it has a chance considering it’s a Hardcore mode in BO2. Also, like I stated in my reply to Jonas, maybe War and Uplink for the fact that SHG would want to see how they’d work out and would want to see what the community would think.

    • Soul Fragment Inc

      That would be nice to have as a hardcore mode.

      • MichiganerE

        Which ones?

        • Soul Fragment Inc

          Momentum the war gametype

          • MichiganerE

            Ahh, yes.

          • Soul Fragment Inc

            I would be very happy with that.

          • MichiganerE

            Indeed.

          • Soul Fragment Inc

            Uplink being in a hardcore would be strange but I’d give it a try.

          • MichiganerE

            Same here. I rarely play hardcore, but I’d give it a shot.

    • Kill Confirmed maybe

      • MichiganerE

        I see that happening.

    • Brad

      You’re forgetting Search & Destroy/ Search & Rescue

      • MichiganerE

        Oh yeah, I can see them Hardcore as well.

  • CraziBoi94

    lolk

  • Koolz

    Has anyone read the youtube comments on a video…the amount of haters and “Call of Titanfall: Advanced Crysis” assholes is unbelievable…people want something new, they get it, and then this shit happens.Sometimes I am embarrassed being in the CoD community

    • MichiganerE

      I feel your pain. There’s so many hypocrites in the community.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      People hate just because it has the COD name. Then there are the people who hate to try to fit in with the previous group. Then there are trolls who say it just because they want to start a comment war. Then there are people who type stuff like that to try to get top comment. You get the point. On any game EVER, there will always be hate. I guarantee it. This game just has more because it’s COD.

  • Glad to see they support all 500 fans that play hardcore. Sounds hateful when I put it that way. No hate though. Just a smart ass remark

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Who doesn’t love a smart ass?

    • Richard P.

      The number is closer to 25,000 [concurrent] hardcore players. And I’m glad to hear there are hardcore modes, sometimes I want to indulge on gameplay that’s a bit more intense and well…hardcore.

      • DoIneed2login

        I literally went 25-2 in harcore tdm that shit is is easier than core

      • Edwin Cortez

        most of those hardcore players are guys getting wins for their clan for the clan war

        • Goodz

          Play against good hardcore players, the reason you can go 25-2 is because ppl die very quickly. You simply just played against bad hardcore players….My friends and I play consistently and there are many skilled and talented hardcore players. Hardcore means it’s real, you can’t absorb lots of bullets (as you wouldn’t be able to in real life either). Some people just prefer the realistic aspect…Don’t know hardcore just because you played against some scrubs.

          • Goodz

            Sry meant at Dolneed2login and meant to say don’t knock* hardcore just because you played against some scrubs.

    • iTYPE2ANNOY

      being a smart ass and claiming “no hate” is like sucking a dick and claiming “no homo”

      stand up for yourself, you bitch.
      for example: hardcore mode is lame as fuck and is for noobs who like to get kills with 2 bullets of any gun. As if the TTK for AW wasn’t low enough we don’t really even need hardcore for this game.

      • Acadius Alexander

        Sounds like someone missed nap time.
        Who are you to delegate what gamers should or shouldn’t play? Most people that complain about Hardcore mode usually can’t handle the fact that there’s no radar or HUD which means you have to be truly aware of your surroundings and yes, you can die quickly because your health doesn’t regenerate. Hardcore mode also has FAR less hit markers.

        • KillzoneVII

          Exactly, lately I’ve preferred hardcore more because not only is it more challenging, but people really die when you shoot them so I tend to do better in HC compared to Core.

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          thanks for explaining hardcore mode to me, but i already knew what it was. And who am i you ask? I’m that guy who will only play hardcore mode to teamkill at crucial moments and team stun or team flash let’s not forget that i will not hesitate to walk in friendly line of fire and to destroy team equipment or team sentries. So yeah bring back hardcore mode, all you hardcore buttsex lovers will be sorry they brought it back.

          • Acadius Alexander

            Wow. Your lexicon of thought is impressive. You forget that Hardcore has ricochet so whatever you feebily attempt to sabotage the team has no effect. Even in Treyarch’s games, you get booted and put on suspension for doing that.
            I can’t tell if you’re socially challenged or just some little boy that’s upset that you have to go back to school. Either way, we pity you and your misplaced anger and obvious insecurities. It’s pathetic that you perpetuate the malleable stigma that surrounds the Call of Duty community.
            Good luck with your choices in life. Maybe when you grow up, you can talk with the rest of us adults and we will weigh in on your thoughts.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            you’re MUCH more wrong than you think there, Mr. Humongous Ego…since ricochet is only in Ghosts not Black Ops…In Black Ops 1 or 2, will I get kicked for killing 2 teammates? NO, you get 3 friendly kills before you are kicked.

            Will I get kicked for stunning and flashing the entire team the entire game? NO. Will i get kicked for destroying friendly equipment? NO. Will I get kicked for continuously walking in front of a teammate’s line of fire? NO. They might even get kicked for shooting me too much 🙂

            The possibilities are endless. I can’t wait to bump into you online while you are attempting to play your hardcore gayness.
            By the way no matter what words you are using in your vocabulary, you will never be smart, it just makes you look like a fucking nerd and that Superman,Captain America bullcrap profile picture isn’t helping your argument of maturity either. LMFAO…

          • Acadius Alexander

            My vocabulary comes from being educated.
            I’ll let that ruminate in that space you call a brain. But then it’s obvious that you read at an 8th grade level. And I’m being generous when I state that.
            But I digress, you obviously have mental issues and I hope you get some help and perhaps come to terms with your insecurities.
            Best of luck to you.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            Anyone say pompous words in order to sound smart, I just choose not to look like a snobby douchebag such as yourself. See you on COD, good job linking your Facebook and Twitter to your Disqus like a true idiot.

        • bert

          you are so right!! and you can’t put on lightweight and grab a sub and run like a chicken with its head cut off!

      • Al Simmons

        Wow only noobs would make a comment like that, fact is HC is for veteran players who are not trigger happy and have self control. tell me what skill is involved in unloading a full clip into someone and not kill them meanwhile ur teammates are walking right through your bullets

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          The skill involved in regular Core is that you must keep accuracy while you aim or you will not get the kill, therefore it requires more skill. Hardcore is for idiots who have no accuracy and get lucky when they spray and pray.

      • Justin Pickeral

        Hey if I wanted to empty half a clip into a guy just to kill him, I’d go play Halo. And fuck Halo.

    • How very dare you.

    • Andrew G

      Not hateful, just completely and utterly ignorant. HC has a strong community of players, whether you want to accept it or not. Don’t like it? Don’t play it.

    • Justin Pickeral

      Hardcore is nice for people who don’t want to rely on teammates all the time. If I walk into a room and there’s 3 enemy guys staring at me, I’d like to have a chance to go ham on them like Clint Eastwood in “Unforgiven”. Just *POW POW POW* and take out all 3 dudes.

    • Lithus

      Um it’s more like 2/3rds of the total cod population. There was always 30k playing HC at peak times in previous cods. There were around 90k+ for the rest. Idlot

      • billy

        Well the population dwindled when they took away all the game modes from hc.

  • MichiganerE

    Maybe AW will have a playlist called “Classic”, a playlist which would have all of the modes in the games without any Exoskeletons including with the old Create-a-Class and Customization system. What do you guys think of this idea?

    • Siftblade of Rivia
      • MichiganerE

        Thanks. What about another playlist that would be similar to CoD 1-3 for the veterans of the series? It could be called, “Vintage”.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          More of a stretch but I know I’d play the hell out of it.

          • MichiganerE

            Yes, it would be nostalgic.

    • Barbz

      thats like saying titanfall without titans? it doesn’t work. Sorry

      • MichiganerE

        How does this relate to Titanfall in anyway?

        • John

          READ IT! He says; thats like !
          Dumbass

          • MichiganerE

            What?

        • Barbz

          You are saying to add a playlist where the core of the game isn’t there? It doesn’t work. I was saying titanfall as an example

          • MichiganerE

            That’s a horrible example. Since when did Titanfall have a playlist without the core of the game? Also, the idea of a “Classic” CoD playlist would be cool, and who cares if the ideas been used? Nothing is truly original.

          • CGkillZ

            I don’t think you understand what he’s saying. The exo abilities could be really stupid and get annoying. So if they’res a mode where it’s just simple cod with a few maps that make sence then it would be fun if your frustrated by the game.

    • kia0525

      Dude i was thinking the exact same thing today before reading your comment.

      • MichiganerE

        Cool.

        • No hate but a comment like that is what invites people to hate you just sayin

          • MichiganerE

            Good, I’m getting bored without haters.

          • Welp that’s for saying that i will make sure to avoid you..should have known what you were up to when you brought up BNB!

          • MichiganerE

            BNB?

          • Forgot you were new

          • MichiganerE

            New? I’ve been on CharlieIntel since the BO2 era of the website.

          • And you dont know BNB yep your new bud anyway im going to sleep hope you find the guy to argue with all night

          • MichiganerE

            How am I new if I’ve been here for over 2 years?

          • KillzoneVII

            I’ve been on this site since the BO1 era (though I don’t post much) and I don’t know what BNB is, just saying.

          • MichiganerE

            By Campy’s logic, you’re new. Even if you’ve been on a website for 10+ years, you’re new for not knowing knowing a certain meme.

          • KillzoneVII

            He’s one of those guys who thinks everyone knows a certain joke just because he does, and if you don’t you’re not cool or whatever basically.

            Don’t like people who pull that crap.

          • MichiganerE

            Same here.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            HAH! you’re one of those closet gays who likes to watch grown, sweaty men touch eachother in their underwear on stage and throw out the fakest punches in the entire world.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            “forgot you were new” no hate but a comment like that is what invites people to hate you just sayin

    • iTYPE2ANNOY

      or instead of that stupid idea which is a lot of extra work to create just because you are too lazy to put in your old discs, you can just play the older game you speak of because it already exists

      • MichiganerE

        Yeah, I can play the older games right now, but it would still be cool to see in a more recent CoD title. Besides, they have 3 years to develop each game, so they have plenty of time to put it in the game

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          or they could spend their time on a new game and focus on making it the best that they can instead of being distracted making things that have already existed.

          • MichiganerE

            Or they could do both of those things. 3 years to develop a game is quite a lot of time.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            re-read what i just said above.

          • MichiganerE

            I did just now, and they could give us a “Classic” and make it the best they can as well. 3 years is a lot of time and with the right developers and a good amount a developers, both of these ideas could be done in a CoD game.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            keep re-reading my comment that i told you to re-read until you realize the importance. please just stop with your bad ideas.

          • MichiganerE

            I’ve already your comment plenty of times and I agree with you, but it would be cool to see a “Classic” playlist and see the developers work hard on the game. A “Classic” playlist would be nostalgic and major fan service for the fact that we’d get two different play styles in one game. Now, in your next reply, instead of saying to re-read your comment and telling me my idea is bad for the 4th time, tell me why my idea is bad. I mean, hey, if it’s bad, there has to be a reason why, right?

    • Drillz

      That would be fun. If they do it, we’re in for a great year.

      • MichiganerE

        Indeed.

    • You were right! Haha

      • MichiganerE

        Yeah! You were 3 months late!

  • Jamkin

    I think if we really press Micheal on his twitter page if demolition will return or not, he will give us a definite answer.

  • MichiganerE

    I’m commenting a lot on this one post, does this mean the trolls are gonna start insulting with comments such as “Get a life!”?

    • çħιđєɾå™

      I don’t think so lol

      • MichiganerE

        You sure? They do it with Jordan.

        • They only do it to Jordan because hes a YouTube that’s small and uses this site and make video after he gets the info!Hes has no problem with it + We all love Jordan i swear its one guy on like 20 accounts lmao!!

          • MichiganerE

            I’m a small YouTube as well with only 159 subscribers. But unlike him, I don’t do CoD news. I just do whatever I want on my channel.

        • çħιđєɾå™

          Well tbh he comments about 50 times per article

          • MichiganerE

            I suppose so.

  • Autocorrect

    DEMOLITION is my favorite mode in any COD. Please SHG, just do it! I don’t stand alone!

  • MissouriKid

    I want demolition headquartes and sabotage back, maybe we should all spam him at once.

  • khh1968

    Take hardcore mode out please, literally 70% of my clan use thermal LMG’s and camp in HC and think they’re good having 70+ kill games without capping a flag. Campers are ruining COD. FACT.

    • Acadius Alexander

      I hate it when players do that to pad their precious stats. It happens in both Hardcore and Core.

    • GodLikeLeftNut

      you should try playing HC nuketown with 18 players. lmg wall spraying, spawn spraying. instagib with automatic weapons is a tad easy imo

  • David Sync

    Momentum and CTF please please !! 🙁

  • Эльдар Бекбулатов

    Great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! )))

  • jordanxbrookes

    This is good for the Hardcore fans.

  • LovekillerX

    This is very good news for those who really care about hardcore modes and play them often. I didn’t play very often hardcore modes but sometimes I did. Good to hear these news. 🙂

    This far they have done everything right and pleased many fans (or this is what I think.) Maybe Sledgehammer Games will show Infinity Ward and Treyarch how to make a Call of Duty game right. I’m not saying that these developers are bad. In my opinion both of these developers are good but seems like SGH will take first place.

    I really hope that Advanced Warfare will win the award for best online shooter. They really have deserved it. But I don’t care if they don’t get the award. Most important thing for me is that I will get my hands on this game as soon as possible. 🙂

    November 3rd awaits!

  • NuttyTheSquirrel

    I don’t think this should even be news… It’s normal to have hardcore mode. Just like TDM… It’s kinda already established in CoD. And it is not hard to do.

  • GodLikeLeftNut

    HC is great for leveling shitty weapons and headshots but tbh its just instagib with automatic weapons.

  • KuuGeeL

    Ive been playing cod since cod:waw the only time I played HC when I had to unlock dsr diamond on bo2 i had to play with that sniper called svr or something.

  • Adam

    Also split screen has been confirmed. Still don’t know if it’s 2 or 4 player. https://twitter.com/MichaelCondrey/status/500236579966029824

  • Cadence

    Good to know “weak weapon camo grind mode”, aka “Call of Duty: Ghosts mode” will return. But seriously, was anyone surprised by this news?

  • mbbo wolverine

    Hardcore players are better than core players

  • kushery

    Hardcore is only getting smaller because you guys keep taking out our game modes I use to play hardcore Ffa now I have to play domination I can see lots if players leaving because of it, core is to un realistic and soft I dont get why people like it more 1000 bullets to kill someone Lazer gun is pretty useless

  • Clutch boon goon

    Please add a classic hardcore mode that will make everything complete
