During the multiplayer reveal, Sledgehammer Games announced that 12 game modes would be in Advanced Warfare’s multiplayer at launch, it now seems there will be 13 on November 3rd when the game releases. Fans of the older Demolition mode will be sad to hear that Demolition won’t be around on launch day but there’s always the possibility it’ll return post-launch.

    What a shame

  • Mitch

    When he’s referring to ‘game modes’ I wonder if we should count Ground War and/or Team Tactical towards the 13 since those are just a collection of other modes.

    • Kill Denied

      Ground War and Team Tactical are playlists, not game modes.

  • Are party games going to be included does anyone know? And infected? I hope they give more EXP. this time around, because before you would have to play over 10 matches of infected to equal a good game of kill confirmed.

    • I agree more XP would be cool

    • Austin

      Last time I played infected it was way too easy to get kills, if it’s still as easy then you shouldn’t get much xp.

  • justchill

    is it possible to troll on AW

  • LovekillerX

    Okay so 13 game modes at launch which means that following are on the game:

    – Team Deathmatch
    – Domination
    – Kill Confirmed
    – Capture the Flag
    – Search and Destroy
    – Search and Rescue (I think they said they are doing both SnD and SnR.)
    – Momentum
    – Uplink
    – Hardpoint

    Possibly could (?) come to Advanced Warfare:

    – Free For All (this far it has always been there.)
    – Reinforce/Drop Zone (I don’t know about this because there is already Hardpoint.)

    So what are those other 4 game modes at launch? I really hope that we will see infected. That is now possible because we will have traditional playlist too. πŸ™‚

    Other option is that we get community game modes like infected later, not at launch. But infected if something is always welcome. It is so fun!

    • Keiron harris

      Just a question how about hardcore modes do they count towards it?

      • LovekillerX

        I don’t know what hardcore modes they will bring at launch or if they will bring it later.

      • justchill1234

        no they are playlist that contain Team Deathmatch,Domination,Kill Confirmed etc, so it cannot be considered as a game modes,this applies to team tactical and ground war

        • Keiron harris

          Thanks I didn’t know

    • MrGladiator20

      Maybe Gun game, sticks and stones, sharpshooter, and one in the chamber.

      • LovekillerX

        Those are good options but I really hope that they bring us infected which is my favorite game mode in Modern Warfare 3. πŸ™ I tried to ask them on Twitter but no reply. πŸ™

        I can’t die in peace if they don’t bring it!

        • KernosT

          Infected would be pure stupid.You have a fucking super armor with which you can fly and shit and a douche with a knife kills you .WUT!!!!

          • LovekillerX

            I mean that they could put it to traditional playlist where you don’t have exo abilities. πŸ™‚

          • Jim

            But that better than people camping for kills..

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Those would be in a separate playlist, wouldn’t they?

        • justchill

          but they are still game modes,right? besides there is only headquarters and infected left to return from the previous cods what else they could add? i highly doubt that they will include hunted at launch

          • Money Boy

            Sabotage

          • I think SAB would be awesome with the exo abilities. Would be such crazy chaotic gameplay and with having to actually stop and arm the objective it creates more teamwork versus UPLINK where it can be a 1 man show just throwing the ball through or jumping.

          • jordanxbrookes

            #ReturnSabotage

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            FFA, Groundwar, etc. can also be added. Usually they’re talking about core gamemodes, not hardcore, party games, etc.

    • MattM1974

      They’ve also confirmed the failed “non-EXO” playlist that will be DOA. This will likely be a moshpit style of a few game types.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        They said that would be it’s own playlist, not gamemode.

      • PrayersBro

        Thank god. Non-exo should be a moshpit. Can’t split up the community too much. If kids want to keep playing the same old game, let them play a few gametypes. New game should cater around the NEW mechanics, not vice-versa.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I think Groundwar could be one of them. Maybe some moshpit style gamemode with small teams, and 2 others.

      Edit: Oh yeah, and FFA.

    • Daniel

      I’d say gun game and infected because of their popularity, one in the chamber (the one shot kill pistol would work perfect for this) and maybe reinforce or drop zone. I dont think any of the 4 will be new because they’d be quick to market them. And on a side note while i love demolition it wouldnt work with the exos. Itd be just like that global thermonuclear war mode in mw2

    • Free for all…

      • jordanxbrookes

        Everyone knows that I will get angry if they don’t add in Free-For-All, my favourite go-to game mode.

        • Super

          i dont think that anybody would know that, nor do i know why the fuck you would think people would not

          • Super

            ^people would know that*

    • I don’t think they’re bringing back SnR

      • LovekillerX

        I remember that they would have said on Twitter that they are doing both. I might be wrong.

        • Bruce Wayne

          i think FFA, ground war, Team tactical and hopefully infected

          • LovekillerX

            Infected has to return. πŸ™

      • Yes they are. Michael tweeted they are bringing back both SnD and Snr

      • Mario Rivera

        Yes, they confirmed ot a while ago. I dnt get it tho cuz that game was a failure.

    • Juses

      +team domination

    • Dylan

      I’m hping for HQ

    • Mario BΓ©langer

      I want to see in Domination* mode the same timeline of BO2: part one & part 2 .How you call it?
      Keep the high score streaks at the end part
      Also Headquarter (not capture it when winning)
      Keep time going ; about 20 mins if was it?

    • They can leave out Reinforce and Drop Zone IMO.

  • Not a big deal for me since I haven’t played demolition since Black Ops 1. But I know there are people who want to play it. I still don’t get why it’s not in the game *at launch*… Is the game not ready? Or do they want to make the live time of the game longer by adding new stuff during the year?

    • VVFZ

      Almost every Demo lobby is a full team spawn trapping. I think they’re trying to prevent the spawn trapping teams from having their wish. Besides, a lot of people have switched to Domination/TDM.

      • Edwin Cortez

        Yeah is a broken gamemode… People usually gets mad when you plant the bomb because they want to spawntrap and get feeds.

      • Krc5

        U can spawn trap in domination just as easily

  • Devin Johnson

    that extra game mode better be all or nothing from MW3!!! such a fun game type it takes reaction time thats what is awesome

  • justchill

    is it possible to troll on AW

  • Mitch

    I wonder if they might be hiding another new gamemode from us.

  • Haydn

    PLEASE BE INFECTED D:

    • LovekillerX

      Bring us infected or we riot!

      • Haydn

        Im with you friend πŸ˜›

        • LovekillerX

          I would like to see it at launch but the most important thing here is that they would bring it at some point. Infected came later to Modern Warfare 3 so if it is not at launch maybe we will see it later? πŸ™‚

      • Seven

        Infected was shit in ghosts. It better be the mw3 style and even then it got annoying. Infected custom matches were fun tho.

    • Should be doge mode :

    • Zarky

      Why infected? We’ve had it for like 3 years now… Its boring

      • Haydn

        Its really not…. its a great mode to fall back onto when everything else is not so appealing. You don’t have to worry about “try-harding” on infected – it is just fun!

        • Mark Fortin

          since i maxed on ghosts i’ve been playing a lot of it

    • VVFZ

      Infected is fun and all but most people use it for KD & W/L boosting.

      • Haydn

        I would honestly have it as a gamemode which doesn’t count towards any stats what so ever,,,I just want it πŸ™‚

      • James Veach

        No for wl kd only the only way to boost wl in infected is to be the last surviver every game, At which point you might as well backpack any other game mode.

      • Edwin Cortez

        That’s the main reason i hate this gamemode. A couple of guys that i know in ghost reset their stats and only play this BS. It’s full of squeakers and boosters.

    • David Sync

      If it’s infected u guys are lucky bastards ;-; demolition is my fav gamemode..

    • Willekeurig persoon

      Infected without throwing knife (or anything that looks like it) would be awesome. Just don’t let the stats count

      • Well if infected comes, look out for this…

        • LovekillerX

          Well that would be possible for infected as an equipment. It would work as a “new throwing knife” in my opinion. πŸ™‚

    • MrSmoFo

      i don’t think they can use infinity wards game modes cause i haven’t seen antything used from infinityward yet only treyarch

      • Not an Idiot

        Search and Rescue? Kill Confirmed?

        Several Ghost guns are in here

        • blackburnt7

          theyve also used hardpoint from Treyarch. so it wont be a problem

    • yes leave the boosters in there own playlist

  • MrGladiator20

    I don’t really like demolition anyways. Its really only spawn trapping.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      On BO2. It’s because there were 3 lane maps on BO2 and it was easy to spawntrap. AW, though it’s mostly 3 lane maps, has verticality as well as the new movement system that will make the game extremely fast paced and fun. Imagine jumping over an enemy who’s spawn trapping, shooting him from behind, and you plant the bomb as your whole team follows through to help defend. EPIC.

  • SilentNova

    13 game modes? Nice! Always welcome to have more unique and entertaining game modes! Although all of my time will be but into Kill Confirmed πŸ˜‰ decided to give this game a more possitive outlook. Who knows, maybe, just maybe, this could bring that sense of fun that Mw2 has? I just pray now the kill streaks are fun to use. Nothing like Goats plz…plz?

  • Grigori

    For god’s sake! You take seriously like every thing from black ops 2 except this awesome gamemode!? Dammit, you want to keep your fans happy, then don’t do this! Many people wanted it to return… pitty….

    • Haydn

      people spawn kill on it….

      • Grigori

        They don’t on ffa?

        • Haydn

          Thats different… People choose to spawn kill on FFA.
          On demolition, Whether you want to or not, you always find yourself waiting for the enemy to spawn if your team is doing well

          • Grigori

            Some people play for objective, like me

          • jooker-jr

            But most of the players spawn trap

            Maybe it’s not at launch because they want to balance the spawns.

          • Grigori

            Yeah, I hope they will add it later

  • Grigori

    I really hope the other gamemodes are partygames, cranked or infected!

  • Kill Denied

    Bring back Infected but with unique survivor and infected models with revamped maps.

    • Guywithbrains

      Infected equipment should be those spike balls. On the other hand I would totally play infected all the time, because it is my favorite from MW3.

      • Grigori

        What are spikeballs?

        • Guywithbrains

          I mean spike drone. You can shoot ball with spikes to the enemy. One could say it is replacing throwing knife and it would be ideal equipment for infected, if infected is returning.

  • W E W A NT Z O M B I E S .

    • Guywithbrains

      Zombies could be cool, if they put clear story to it like Extinction did. Not just easter eggs, but actual cutscenes and continuing story in episodes.

      • Batman

        No. The zombies storyline is fun just because the way it is told

        • Guywithbrains

          In my opinion it is not epic to find out what the story is about by looking for easter eggs. Also I never really understand all the easter eggs, so it would just cause confusion.

          Although I respect your opinion and I think that for someone it might be actually fun the way it is now. For me not so much.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            No. They should NOT do what extinction did. Imo they shouldn’t even do what BO2 did with the EE, using cutscenes and scripted dialogue, etc. They should do what WAW and BO1 did. That was by far the funnest part of zombies, speculating. What BO1 and WAW did was scatter little bits of information around the map, in millions of small easter eggs. They also didn’t straight up tell you the story. They made you piece it together hint by hint, dialogue by dialogue, until the next map, that helped piece it together more. It was extremely fun to be part of the community back then and help piece the story together with fellow zombies fans. I’m not saying don’t have a main easter egg, I’m just saying I don’t want them to hold our hands through it and show us everything right off the bat.

          • Guywithbrains

            Well I guess that we are thinking opposite about what is the best way to tell a story. I think that it is better to have clear story with scripted dialogue and epic events. I still understand that it is nice to be part of the story and piece the story together by yourself.

            We will see if they bring zombies back or put some other horde mode. Whatever it is, I think they know what they are doing. So far single player and multiplayer look like one of the best ones yet IMO.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Indeed. Whatever it is, I will still enjoy it!

          • Guywithbrains

            Seems like Sledgehammer Games is going to be my favorite game developer from the three. SHGames > IW > Treyarch

            I trust SHGames because they helped with MW3 and it is my favorite Call of Duty game for some reason. I play it everyday and my playtime is 43 days and probably 25 days are from infected game mode. XD

          • Edwin Cortez

            Back in WaW and BO1 YouTube wasn’t big like nowadays. You put and easter egg and everybody knows and tells everyone online, and its easy finding out.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yeah, I guess.. At least make the story good then. It went down the shitter in BO2. Only good story was MOTD. The new characters in Tranzit, Die Rise, etc. sucked and had almost nothing to do with the original story, and Origins was good until the end, with the cutscene.

          • Shabur Bakhtiar
          • Shabur Bakhtiar

            Zombies confirmed?

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            No. It could just be an easter egg on the controller, could just be a troll by SH because they thought it’d be funny to see us get all excited. Probably a bit of both, lol. It could be true though, we honestly don’t know until they announce it.

          • Shabur Bakhtiar

            Sledgehammer pls

          • I like your way of thinking. I hated how they did it with Extinction. Remember that IW said there won’t be any story related to extinction, then changed it on the last moments because everyone was begging for it…

      • Shabur Bakhtiar
        • Shabur Bakhtiar

    • No we don’t.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Yes we do. As much I love Treyarch, their zombies team has gone very downhill. I found it funny how the two maps that the campaign team made were the best two zombie maps in BO2. What we need is a new zombies team to spice things up.

        • Grigori

          And have some good custommappers at the team

        • I just don’t want zombies in general

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Why? if you don’t like Zombies, it shouldn’t bother you. Just don’t play it.

          • If he doesn’t like zombies he is essentially missing out the co-op game mode πŸ˜›

          • The problem is is that’s all my mates want to play and they don’t have any map packs so its fucking boring running around on town 24/7

          • jordanxbrookes

            Well then tell them to stop being poor and cheap and go buy the map packs, simple.

          • Or just give up and get an Xbone.

    I wish infected is returning. I can say pretty sure it being one of the fan favorite modes. I still play everyday infected in MW3. It is fun and relaxing mode, even though there are those blocking split screen players…

  • Zarky

    Free For All, Ground War and Non exo suit playlists..

  • This is so stupid. Bring back demolition. It won’t hurt anyone. Except I’ll probably be too busy “War” (from WAW) in AW to even care. πŸ™‚

    • Grigori

      Can you explain to me what that War gamemode is? I have played world at war but I didn’t played War.

      • You fight for control of flags, and earn rewards for good play. Have to cap all five, one at a time. Suits all playstyles and weapons. Look up Whiteboy7s video on WAR

  • Ryumoau

    i never tried that game mode before but alot of people seem to want it.

  • Michael

    I love demolition but in all honesty, people only played it to spawn trap most of the time. Which is completely unfair. In a way, I’m glad their not bringing it back because just think of the exo abilities being used in that particular game mode.

  • it will be dropzone come on gotta keep the 5 year olds on board

    • Michael

      I found drop zone to be quite easy to kill all the quickscoping in that mode. So I hope they do bring it back. πŸ˜€

  • Grenada!

    TDM, FFA, KC, Domination, Hardpoint, S&D, S&R, CTF, Uplink, Momentum, HC TDM, HC KC, HC S&D.

    • DOINEED2LOGIN

      HC is a separate playlist

  • Thoughtful Discourse

    Demo is a game mode that lived or died based on level design. MW3 was the last game that had good level balance for playing demo.

    • Grigori

      Yup, and a few black ops 2 maps. Not all of them! Some of them were shitty with demo

  • Mario Rivera

    I really dnt get the whole snr and snd thing as well as the whole ctf and uplink thing. If it were up to me i would simply remove snr and uplink and replace them with demolition. Party modes like infected, gun game, etc should have its own playlist and ranking system separate from the traditional multiplayer as lots of ppl only use them to boost stats.

    • I am so glad it isn’t up to you then! Uplink look’s like the next big thing since Hardpoint sir

      • Mario Rivera

        U say that now but once u realize how similar it is to ctf u will wish we did have demolition instead. Its gonna be the fact that you cannot use your gun while holding the ball that will deter most ppl from playing this over ctf. This mode will fail the same exact way snr did…

        • I wasnt a fan of snr, but Uplink looks really fun but we will see as I havent played it yet I cant fully comment on it

  • LovekillerX

    Just noticed that someone have said on Twitter to Michael Condrey that there could be customizationable (however you write that word monster) camos. For that Michael Condrey said “Yup. Got you covered.” What this means?

    Also there will be several traditional weapons, at least Michael Condrey says so. πŸ™‚ I also found out that there will be returning game modes (in addition to this list: Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, Search and Rescue, Domination, Capture the Flag, Hardpoint.) I really hope that this doesn’t mean those game modes which we already know. πŸ™

    • KernosT

      Yes I saw that.Means that you can add camo on a camo and when asked about DLC camos he said we will about that after Nov.4.Fucking sick mate.Imagine some sick camo from the supply drop topped up with a diamond Camo.OMG ORGASM.

      • Guywithbrains

        Maybe finally I can put golden camo and diamond camo at the same time to my gun! Hype train keeps on going!

  • That’s a shame. Demolition is my second favorite next to CTF.

    • jooker-jr

      Maybe they want to balance it.

  • PrayersBro

    Just hope these are all only in the exo playlist, and not in the traditional to prevent the community from being too divided. Should just make the latter a moshpit, which is probably going to happen since they’ve already said the game is based around exo suits and is the top priority.

  • jooker-jr

    Off topic but can the editors in charlie intel make a poll about quickscoping ??

    I know SHG is listening to the community so doing a poll is a good way to help them.

    The question ( or one of the questions ) should be : which cod has the the best and most balanced QS ?

    • Guywithbrains

      I prefer MW3 quickscoping. I don’t usually quickscope, but when I do, I am good at it. But I like more hard scoping and getting some nice feeds.

      No, I am not that guy who run and gun with sniper and no scope you behind the corner. πŸ˜›

      • Saint123q

        COD 4 to me had quick scoping right. It took skill to pull off.

    • Saint123q

      The only issue with doing a poll like this is that the community is too divided with Quick Scoping, it’s because of Black Ops 2 this issue has become a lot more hard to talk about. Most people don’t like quick scoping and see it as a cheap tactic, while others believe it is a legitmate tactic. Myself, I don’t mind it, i see it as another challenge and you have to admit, while it is annoying it is a skill in Call of Duty, just the most recent CODs made it WAAAAY to easy.

      • jooker-jr

        I agree with u.

        Personally I prefer bo1 because QS it was very challenging and it required more skill

        I mean killing someone by QSing in bo1 is more satisfying than wining the match( well at least some times πŸ™‚ ), but Maybe QSing in bo1 was hard because the bad hit detection but I don’t think so.

  • Aaron V

    Dude….. DODGE BALL! They can use that new ball from the new gamemode Uplink.

  • JoZer805g

    If they do bring Demolition after launch, it needs to be like Demolition from MW3 where team spawns swap to the other side of the map when the opposing team gets their the other team spawn.

  • YabbaDabbaDoo

    All or Nothing?

    • Guywithbrains

      Yes please!

  • I really liked demolition :'(

  • No demolition? Well I have to cancel my preorder then… πŸ™

  • Potato Republic

    Thank God…I don’t want no more spawn killing..

  • Cimbah

    they have demo but its called War. They are bringing back War from WaW!!!

    • jordanxbrookes

      Demolition is nothing like War, both are completely different game modes.

      • Cimbah

        yeah they are alike, you should go and play the game first.

        • Saint123q

          War and Demolition are two completely different modes. Demolition uses bombs and planting like SnD if anything Demo is like SND except for the fact you can plant both Demo bomb sites. War is a lot like Hardpoint. You obviously have never played Black Ops 2 if you think War and Demo are alike. War is basically Hardpoint.

    Are you fucking kidding me? No demolition? Go fuck urself Michael Condrey, I woulda fucking bought Ghosts with a million other people if there was demolition. SO MANY DEMO CLANS, AND U DONT BRING IT BACK? – But wait, there’s more. He didn’t say “Demo is not one of them” He said “Demo is not one of them at LAUNCH” – Maybe a hint? Still, if it doesnt return, go fuck urself.

    I want demolition! πŸ™
    I wanna spawn trap people while playing in a full party. I know it looks unfair but rage quitting is still an option for players getting owned.

    Is there a list of the 13 game modes? I’d love got them to do a Mercenary playlist again.

    Demolition is easily my all-time favorite game mode in CoD but I’ll gladly try the new game modes and maybe they’ll add demo at a later date.

    Now that I think of it, who cares about the usual game modes? I want party games to return. Gun game, sticks & stones, one in the chamber…
