The way in which we move as a player in Call of Duty has remained very much the same all the way up to 2014.

This definitely isn’t something negative, since it is one of the defining aspects of why Call of Duty is so popular to such a wide audience.

Advanced Warfare has introduced a completely new movement mechanic to the franchise and ultimately changed the pace of the game for many (depending on the game mode).

In the video below, we discuss the future of movement mechanics, and whether we might see a regular appearance of an EXO in future games. Be sure to subscribe to keep up to date with all of our content!

    I love Call Of Duty.

  • zINz_FURY

    ChaosXSilencer theorized that for treyarc games the exo theory could be brought to life with 115 allowing for advanced technologies as the element made the giant walkers in “Origins” possible. Unfortunately 115 is only for zombies and if the next treyarc game is in WWII, the only way I can see this working is if tryarc says “Fuck it” and puts them in anyway.

  • TheWalkingDon

    I’m not a fan of the Exo movements and boosting. And yes it’s because I suck at it and I hate drastic changes.

  • Billy the Camper

    As mostly a TDM player, I enjoy the new movement mechanics a lot. However I strongly dislike the spawns ATM. I also do not approve of the matchmaking and net code model.

    • thetimmon

      i’m not much of a TDM player, but i had to play it for a supply drop challenge today, and i gotta say, when people aren’t camping their asses off, the gamemode’s pretty fun, i still like momentum/domination because of how hectic they can be, but TDM is actually not as tame as i expected it to be. in black ops 2 it was just boring, FFA is fun when you have 6 to 7 guys in a party with the same tag jumping off a damn building trying to hit dem trick shotzzzzz well, more fun when they rage at me for NOT using a sniper.

  • Alec Baldwin

    Knowing CoD it’s probably gonna be the same for the next 8 games or so. They’ll find an excuse.

  • XLKILLA

    If Treyarchs game has EXO suits I’m done with CoD for good.

    • Same here

    • Rodoe528

      Why? The Exo is god

      • XLKILLA

        No it’s not its not CoD. Aw is complete trash in my opinion. It died the fastest out of any cod. There isn’t even 50k on during peak gaming hours on which ever console. It’s a huge disappointment but I doubt Treyarch will be using EXO suits anyway that’s a SHGames thing.

        • ChristianPace

          That’s funny considering you can’t even see how many people are on

            made me chuckle. so true

        • ScOott

          I’m not arguing with you … I was just wondering where u get the player count from ? It’s seems SH don’t like sharing stats … U can’t see how many are online you can’t see other peoples kd and u can’t find out what the highest wave they got to on zombies … Unless I’m missing something … It’s a joke

        • Rodoe528

          Either you suck or hate change but why would they lose it? How would activision compete with future games?

        • WartFighter

          Because you can’t adapt to using an exo suit, you call the game trash? Go play something else, this game is not for you.

          • Juzzie

            I for one agree with the cod vets, In my own opinion the exos ruined Call of Duty because simply put, for the older players (who’s been around since Cod4/MW2) It just doesn’t FEEL like CoD, It’s like going to the movies to see a sequal of a movie series you like and after watching your first thoughts are “what the hell is this shit?”, AW feels like it could be it’s own franchice, not a CoD game.

    • Daniel

      Exos are perfect and awesome, but I need a cold war/ww2 cod from 3arc

      • common sense

        If Keshav has anything to do with it, nothing you want will be in it. He abhors community response because the devs are all knowing. He loves the devs with all his heart and he is eternally thankful for not listening to the community. He has said they can’t listen to the community because they are too hard at work… you know trying to come up with more paid DLC to sell you LOOL. Dear lawd Keshav, you are a poster boy of what is ruining gaming.

        • Random

          And it’s people like you giving gamers a bad name. Whine whine whine, bitch, moan, insult everyone. Common sense my arse. You haven’t got a clue.

        • ScOott

          You are actually obsesed with keshav why don’t u just give him a break… He’s a cod fan he has no influence on any decision activision or SH make

        • Mr Doge

          you are the biggest idiot on this website. And your name makes it even more ironic.

      • Michael

        EXO Suits in WW2? Are you high?

    • TheGamerBeast

      Whatever Treyarch has in its Game this year, i Know and i’m sure it’s gonna be good, and they Know how to blow people’s minds

      • 000000

        I don’t think it would be wise to start hyping up Treyarch’s game now. There is already a lot of pressure on them to make a good game and who knows (I doubt it) but they could do and IW…

        • 000000

          *an

    • J4MES

      Same. I want to see a traditional COD game from Treyarch and not some futuristic farce to appeal to the younger generation.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Chances are I would too, although I’ll still probably play the older CoDs because I enjoy them. Exos just ruin map flow and screws up an already screwed up spawn system even more. I liked the exos in the Campaign and Exo Zombies, but when it comes to AW’s MP it just isn’t Call of Duty.

      • Awoba Bob bob

        Play the classic modes then fat boy

        • jordanxbrookes

          The maps are built for exos though. I’ve played Classic on AW and it doesn’t feel good with the maps. Oh and name-calling? How old are you, 12? Next you’re gonna give me the ol’ “I did ur mom fagit”.

          • Awoba Bob Bob

            We’re from England you tit it’s mum not mom, and you can talk about being 12 who’s been crying and bitching of a Call of Dity video game like a 12 year old for the past 2 months? You not me. Need to grow up pal it’s just a game

          • jordanxbrookes

            I have reasons to bitch. And you can’t tell someone to grow up after name-calling them, that defeats the purpose. To some people, it’s just a game, but I’ve been playing Call of Duty since MW2, and I’ve seen over the years how CoD peaked with MW3, and dropped up to Advanced Warfare. To me, Call of Duty is more than just a game, it’s something I love. That’s why we have fanboys in this world.

          • kplem

            sorry but you make people who bitch look like they aren’t at all you take it too far and you do it too frequently, it seems like cod is your life? pretty pathetic and sad

          • Awoba Bob Bob

            Just a game mate a dieing franchise probably won’t be around in 10 years

          • Carrisi

            Totally agree, although my love has disappeared over the last two years. Ignore the haters I don’t think they understand what COD used to be.

          • jordanxbrookes

            They probably only started playing CoD around Black Ops 2’s time. Idc for haters when I know and the CoD vets know we’re right.

          • yo

            Mw3 was garbage bro not its peak.

            What are you talking about? Mum is just the same as Mom, in U.K we spell it mum in the U.S. it’s spelt mom, where do you get mam from?

          • Random

            I’m from the UK, are you sure you are? I guess if so you have no idea about regional variations of words. In the North East of England, large parts of Yorkshire and also Scotland, the word for mother is mam. I’m well aware that mum is used most other places, and that mom is an American term. Hopefully that clears it up for you; I’m sure the majority of UK CI users knew exactly what I was getting at.

          Because this is a Call of Duty blog, not an Advanced Warfare blog.

            Your argument is invalid.

        Why you not been commenting ? Don’t let these new account people or guests push you out …

    • Potato Republic

      I think Exo Suits should just stick with Sledgehammer Games, and not other companies.

      • steelersdc26

        I wouldn’t mind an exo suit game every 3 years.

    • I just want a ww2 game with a mp like cod3s

      • Sean Mitchell

        go play cod3 then

      • Who would want cod3 MP? The game sucks! What aspect of it do you like? When I used to play it I wished the game was better. And now that Call of Duty has improved, I’m much happier holding my Xbox controller. ^_^

        • Overachiever

          Hey Eder Dam was the map. Yo

      • Overachiever

        cod 4 you mean, don’t be afraid to correct yourself, I do agree with you.

    • KernosT

      Exo’s are fucking awesome to be honest but I would like Exo to be SHG’s trademark thing.Similarly how 3arc is epic in making WW era games and IW should just stick to their shitty,50shades of grey colored,boring crap CoD games like Ghosts and Ghosts 2 and MW3.

      • Overachiever

        Ghosts 2?? please that would be awesome. <3

    • Rorke File

      I want Treyarch to stay classic COD and SHG do that shit.

    • zombiefreak935

      Isnt that what everyone has said every year for 4 years?

    • guest

      i think you spelled sbmm wrong

      • XLKILLA

        SBMM = skill based matchmaking

        • guest

          its a joke you should try it sometime

    • Sal

      Exo changed the dynamic of CoD for the worse; atleast in this game it did. You move too fast furthering the look of lag. Large maps play like small maps. Having to constantly look up is ridiculous. And SBMM hurts it even more because it is frustration piled on with frustration. Maps should be about the size of Ghosts maps with Exo movement.

    • WartFighter

      Funny thing is, the exo suit significantly changed the COD formula as what a lot of people have being asking, the “it’s the same game since COD 4” comment by haters is all to common. Now, people are complaining about the changes or new ways of playing COD.

      • thetimmon

        this is why the gaming industry is constantly the same thing, when a company tries something different everyone calls it shit and that they want the old way back, the three cod companies listen to the community, black ops 2 had a useless knife i wouldn’t butter my toast with, and everyone complained about the maps being too simple, with ghosts we got an OP as crap lunge worse then the commando lunge knife and large complicated maps with flank routes in our flank routes.
        or, let’s look at arguably my two favorite titles in the franchise, MW2 and black ops 1, everyone complained about no balance in mw2, so in black ops 1 we got an extremely well balanced game with not many problems.

  • TheGamerBeast

    yeah i asked myself this question alot, can players that used the fast movement in AW, go back to a Normal Movement COD? i personally Love the Movement in AW, it really changes the Game Speed and Gameplay Style, the thing is, yes we can go back to normal Movement COD, cz personally i played COD for about 6 years, but still AW movement is fun, maybe the same movement can be in the Next COD Games but alot of stuff can be added to it, or changed, and if they’re not gonna make Exos in Next COD Games, then atleast add the Melee Punch it’s fun and piss off enemies XD inb4 we see the Running on walls mechanic LOL

    • Michael

      If the next cod doesn’t have the exos, then people will just have to re-adapt to the older cod feel. Just play the old cods and you’ll get use to the movement mechanics again. That’s the way I see it.

    • thetimmon

      yea, i’d love to see it return, but since i’ve been playing AW for a while and i tried to go back to black ops 1 i kept trying to do a back slide thing and died quite a few times because of not having an EXO, but i did adapt after a bit.

      but, i’d like it if SHG sticks to the future, maybe their next game could be a sort of first person metal gear rising? recently played that game and damn is it fun as fuck. i’d like to see them make more use of a few things, the nano swarm was a bit disappointing, and i wouldn’t of minded seeing the different EXO types from EXO survival, i mean, i’d say to get rid of the whole limiting weapons thing, but have the heavy EXO do more damage and have more health, and have the normal EXO with base damage and extremely fast?

      i’d just like to see another extremely fun game like MW2, course, the try hards would be constantly bitching about the unbalanced stuff when, in fact, EVERYTHING will be unbalanced, we need 1 shot semi auto rifles! 2 hit LMGs that shoot through 3 walls! 2 shot assault rifles at every range! 3 hit kill SMGs at every range! scavengable explosives that still kill ya 30 miles off the actual impact! shotguns that kill across the map while aiming the completely opposite direction! snipers that kill head-to-toe!

  • Gueste

    this game is trash!

  • feraldeath

    I’m down with either way. But what if you gave the option to use an EXO or not with somekinf of tradeoff. Almost every other staple has gone through this kind of modification.

  • Daniel

    Exo is love, exo is life
    But keep it in AW sub franchise

  • The ideal would be to leave Exo’s in Sledgehammers Call of duty, and let Treyarch do regular Call of duty movement. I don’t care what Infinity Ward does as I am not buying their games anymore.

    • zack

      ^^^ hit the nail on the head

    • XLKILLA

      I’m sure that’s exactly what will happen.

    • ScOott

      People say that but what they don’t realise they will be saving the much loved ww 2/3 game for iw … So people have a dilemma they really want old school cod and they don’t want to buy another iw game … People be like meh il give them one more chance seen as its old school

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Nope. Even though I want a WW2 COD, I’m not going to buy it if IW makes it. After AW, I’ll probably only buy Treyarch CODs, just for the zombies since that’s where I usually have the most fun.

        • ScOott

          Lol only me stupid enough then 😀 .. It won’t be a day one purchase but if they fixed map size n ttk il most likely still buy it :-/

      • Doesn’t make a difference to me. If Infinity Ward makes it, I dont want it.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I’m giving IW a second chance, but I hope they make a Modern Warfare 4 or a pre-sequel to COD4 and MW2.

        • Ok

          Probably ghosts 2 but they did say some where along the line that mw4 isn’t off the table

          • jordanxbrookes

            They should go with MW4, I’d be the first to pre-order because I’m a sucker for Modern Warfare games.

          • ScOott

            Yh plus the fact they are hiring new staff is only a good thing hopefully it will be a complet different iw … ive always wonderd if the same iw team made the mw series and ghosts.. I don’t understand how they went from getting it so right to a complete fuck up :-s (excuse my language it’s what ghosts does to me)

          • satish pydikondala

            the new staff started coming in on mw3 and the old staff left or were fired after mw2

          • MichiganerE

            The old IW left after MW2. The new IW made MW3 and Ghosts.

          • ScOott

            That would make sense then they must of got rid of the last descent staff thry had after mw3

          • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

            Mw1 and mw2 were awesome but then the 2 founders of IW got sacked and some devs left too. Mw3 was ok because even though IW were shit SHG fixed that by helping out. Ghosts was then completely shit. aw was great because shg didnt have IW holding them back.

          • CrowReap .

            its most likely ghosts 2 since the end of the ghosts, there’s kind of a cliff hanger. really sucks that its gonna be ghosts 2

          • Overachiever

            Yes I am a MW fanboy.

        • SoulTaker

          If you’re going to give IW a second change please man please wait a month after the release of the game don’t buy into the hype like you did this year. Wait a month maybe even two and check out what the usual complaints are before you buy it as well as this years COD just wait.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Well like I said, I’m a sucker for Modern Warfare games so chances are I’d hype myself up if it was MW4. And like I’ve said in the past, I’m going to be more cautious with future CoD games.

        • Overachiever

          Like I said COD 4 remastered. The heart and soul of Cod is the Call of Duty 4!

    • smayo

      Likewise, no IW CoD’s for me anymore, after AW and there way of handeling community complains SHG can fuck off as well for me, and this year it’s up or under for treyarch, I really hope they revive the CoD experience for me, because I still like CoD but not the recent ones…

    • Overachiever

      IW had it right with Cod 4, Mw2, Mw3 and Ghosts for the most part. Maybe not with the lean aspect but it will be a COD, that won’t change.

  • mr hashtag

    I like the exo movements but treyarch need to go back to original movements of call of duty in thhe next one.

  • J4MES

    After pretty much 3 future COD games on the spin; I hope the new Treyarch game goes back to its humble routes with a classic war setting as opposed to some futuristic fantasy representative title. It may upset the quickscope kiddies but I think the likes of WAW 2 could really rejuvenate the brand. Credit to Sledgehammer on their mechanical execution in AW especially in working with such a dated engine but I wouldn’t want to see exo movements transferred into other games within the series and it could make games feel even more stale and less varied year on year.

    SHG should stick to future titles. Treyarch could do classic and more traditional war-oriented COD and Infinity Ward can just piss off with their dreary brand of fish-AI, Dog and IED infested mess of games.

    • Guywithbrains

      WaW2 isn’t coming if a trust worthy guy knowing insider is to be trusted. Although he hinted that it will be a sequel to already existing Call of Duty series by Treyarch. It will be Black Ops 3 if something.

    • jooker-jr

      DONT YOU EVER INSULT FISH AI.

  • zack

    Everyone credits Advanced Warfare for exo movement but treyarch had the boost jump in “moon” zombies. Honestly dont care what treyarch does. They are the OG cod devs and their games always are great.

  • k5berry

    I’m gonna kind of go with the flow to be honest, how ever weird that might sound haha. I’m torn as to whether or not the Exo should become a staple and fundamental of Call of Duty or not. I’m really enjoying Advanced Warfare and the exo-suit, but do I want Call of Duty to entirely have exo-suits? Even if it sounds like something pretty game-changing (literally lol), I could probably get used to it; but, that would pretty much require CoD to stick into the future and not really be set in the modern or near-future setting. Now THAT’S a big commitment it might not be in Call of Duty’s best interests to make. But, leaving the Exos to be SHG’s thing could get hairy as well, because it might be weird to not have that continuity over that relatively large gameplay feature. IT could also lead to some criticism like “ooooooooooohhhh so they admit AW sucked huehuehue”. So they have to decide what would be “easiest” for CoD’s future timeline if you will. Basicaly there’s just lots of factors and elements they have to keep in mind when deciding on the features and such. But personally I won’t really mind either way.

  • ScOott

    They should just let us be more nimble like a novice free runner no more exo …being able to jump straight onto a ladder n stuff like that so it don’t feel so clunky

  • Michael

    Just go back to the basics or remake the classics. I for one love remaked games because it brings nostalgia to me. Just imagine bo1 on next gen ???

    • Guywithbrains

      MW trilogy would be better. I don’t really like Black Ops and one reason is that there is that clumsy and pretty useless dolphin dive.

      Slide > dolphin dive (not related to MW series but just saying).

      • Michael

        Slide and dolphin dive and unique in their own way. They are both very cool innovations to cod. I agree though, I would take slide over dolphin dive any day. But I think all treyarchs cods deserve remakes TBH. Just my opinion.

        • Guywithbrains

          They have some good things too. But as I said before it will be more likely we get another future title (BO3) because someone on Twitter claimed it won’t be WaW2.

      • Juses

        …you don’t like Black ops because there is a option that you’re not forced to do? That makes no sense what so ever.

        • Guywithbrains

          It is one of the smallest reasons. There are so much bigger flaws in my opinion.

          • Juses

            Like what? Mw2 is the most unbalanced cod to date.

          • Guywithbrains

            It goes (the most unbalanced ones) in my opinion:

            BO2 > MW2 > BO1 > AW > MW3 > Ghosts

          • Juses

            BO2 is very balanced, you can do good with any gun and the only thing that’s unbalanced is a few shotguns and snipers. But, you should put AW 2nd on that list because you can only do good with a few guns.

          • LovekillerX

            SMR, M8A1, TYPE 25, S12, M1216, SVU-AS, Chicom CQB and Scorpion Evo doesn’t do #%@!. At least I don’t get almost any kills with these weapons and many others are also complaining. Submachine guns and shotguns dominate in this game. Also pistols in BO2 are so bad. But this is only my opinion.

            I wouldn’t say that BO2 is the most unbalanced but it belongs in the top 3 of the most unbalanced in my opinion.

          • Juses

            You can do good with all the guns you listed And still have a fair chance against other guns. Also, did you really just say that pistols are bad in BO2? They’re as good as primaries

          • LovekillerX

            Yes pistols are bad in BO2. When I try to use pistol I get hammered by sweaty tryhards by their AN-94 stock + silencer. Pistols have no match against other weapons in BO2. This is my opinion and I guess that someone can do well with almost any weapon. I don’t deny that.

            Pistols are beast in BO2 is you keep close range

          • Random

            If you want to do well with a pistol, you need to play the right way. Honestly I could go on pretty big streaks just bombing around like a lunatic with a B23R. Not everyone can use every weapon though so perhaps the pistols in BO2 are something you just don’t get on with. I’m awful with snipers and most shotguns, just the way it goes.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I can do decent with all those weapons. And how are the pistols in Black Ops 2 bad? Black Ops 2 pistols were so good that they were used as a primary weapon. Have you used the Atlas 45? That’s an example of a bad pistol, hit markers for days :/

          • LovekillerX

            I think that pistols are bad in Black Ops 2 but I can agree about Atlas-45. That is why I use execution pistol (that one shot kill pistol).

          • jordanxbrookes

            Talking about execution, the Executioner I can agree was terrible.

          • yoloswag

            Mate you are full on retarded. Kap40 was the best pistol in cod history IMO. I Could get swarms and k9s with that and scavenger but it took alot of hard work to get even a care package with assault rifles

          • Kyle G

            The SMR is a really good assault rifle, it can two hit people from medium range.

            The M8A1 was the main assault rifle used by pro players and is the best assault rifle in the game. Tryhards still use it in pubs. I have no idea how you can say that the M8A1 sucks.

            The Type 25 melts kids.

            The S12 is a semi-automatic shotgun, and you can spray people with it left and right.

            The M1216 is automatic, but I will agree that it isn’t as strong as it should be.

            The SVU-AS is a semi-automatic sniper rifle with low recoil. It’s a really good sniper and is extremely annoying to play against.

            The Chicom is pretty bad.

            I’m not even going to get started on the Skorpion. 1200 rate of fire? LOL.

            I will agree with you that the majority of the maps are overly SMG and Shotty friendly, but I wouldn’t say that they are “dominated” by them.

            The pistols in BO2 are overpowered. The fuck are you talking about?

            Black Ops 2 is well-balanced. The only issues I have with BO2 is the connection and the fucking snipers.

          • LovekillerX

            Black Ops 2 well-balanced? Tell me why submachine guns and shtoguns dominates the game then? Yeah…

            Those weapons sucks listed above. I’m not giving my statements as a fact but as a opinion. So you can’t tell me “how you can say that what the ***’ is wrong with you?”

            Black Ops 2 belongs to the list of most unbalanced. Noobs vs. sweaty tryhards. And I wasn’t that bad so your statement about me being bad is invalid. I can say that MW2 is most unbalanced and Black Ops 2 belongs to the top 3.

            Note: it was my opinion.

          • Kobrah

            Are trolling or did you never actually play BO2?

          • jordanxbrookes

            It went from Bal-27, then 2 months later it was Bal-27 and ASM1, and now it’s Bal-27, ASM1, AE4 and HBRa3. I too would put AW second since MW2 is the most unbalanced CoD game to date.

          • the specialist

            Mw2 is the best cod.it has the best maps,weapons,perks.it was almost perfect.and it was so good because IW made their games(MW2,MW1) without taking into consideration what the community wanted.and that is what happened with titanfall too.i think that RESPAWN ENTERTAINMENT(former IW)is the only one that can make a bettet game than MW2 which is for me the best game ever☺

          • jordanxbrookes

            Modern Warfare 2 is the most unbalanced Call of Duty to date. Never said it wasn’t fun.

          • the specialist

            It was not unbalanced.maybe the only wrong thing was the one man army with the infinite grenade launchers.But weapons do not have to be balanced.They got the weapons as they are in real life and they put them in to the game.So the weapons were perfect,maps perfect,killstreaks perfect.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Ghosts balanced? Lmao, well it is your opinion.

          • LovekillerX

            It is compared to Black Ops 2. If you ever have played BO2 (I think you have) you should know that people just use submachine guns and shotguns. MP7, MSMC and that freaking Remington. In Ghosts I didn’t see people using the same gun over and over again.

            And yes, I know that people know silencer + thermal LMGs but that doesn’t make Ghosts unbalanced…

          • yoloswag

            Ghosts was definitely balanced, every gun was just as shit as the others

          • Dudebr0

            What about the ripper? Having a bad game switch to that turned it around instantly.

          • jordanxbrookes

            LOL!

          • PoppyMelt

            BO2 is by far the most balanced COD, no game even comes close.

          • kplem

            BO2 most balanced? you clearly are retarded if you think that sorry.

          • PoppyMelt

            They had a $1M tournament and nearly every gun was used in that tournament. When the pro players that play 70+ hours a week still can’t find guns that completely outclass everything else that means the game is balanced.

          • kplem

            what the hell do pro players have to do with the game being balanced?

          • thetimmon

            wrong. snipers are way too powerful add that with 90% of normal rounds never actually registering unless your host and you got snipers running around 1 shotting you in the foot when you put a magazine in them and in the kill cam you shoot 1 or 2 bullets.

            now then, black ops 1 was the most balanced. the famas was arguably the most “powerful” gun and it STILL got outclassed when shitty players were using it.

            now then, that “$1M tournament” was the one they had like 3 or 4 months after release, correct? if so, yea, the game was pretty balanced at that point, but after treyarch decided it would be a good idea to nerf fucking everything except the snipers and shotguns it became shit. no denying that right now, when you go back and play you will only ever see a few guns, the two main weapons that AREN’T snipers or shotguns being the MSMC and SCAR-H/AN-94.

            now then, why people bash and say BO2 is better then AW when they both have the same problems BO2 is two years old while AW is only like 5 months old. there’s no excuse for BO2 to STILL be shit

            now then, if treyarch decides not to nerf everything, and instead to buff everything that people aren’t complaining about, we’d have a balanced game.

          • That’s funny. Last time I checked the list went more like this. MW2 > AW > MW3 > BO1 > Ghosts > BO2. I don’t understand why people say BO2 was unbalanced. You could literally do good with an MTAR, PDW, MSMC, TYPE 25, MP7, AN94, M27, M8A1 etc.. Hell you could even do good with a pistol (five-seven, B23R). It was by far the most balanced COD up to date. Whereas AW you could pretty much only do superb using the Bal-27 or the ASM1.. BALanced? I think not..

          • Guywithbrains

            BAL-27 isn’t op it is overused. Two different things.

            But my experience with BO2 was that it was the most unbalanced Call of Duty game. As it has been stated before guns like assault rifles (AN-94), SMGs (MSMC, MP7) and shotguns (Remington 870MCS) dominate that game.

            But okay maybe MW2 was more unbalanced but BO2 is definitely in top 3 unbalanced titles to date.

          • Random

            Dude you’ve just mentioned pretty much every weapon class and said they dominate. How does that work? If it was unbalanced surely only 1 or 2 weapons from the whole list would be used with everything else being pointless. A bit like AW has been. BO2 had plenty of options and I rarely had too many issues doing well with at least one weapon per category, and from SMG and AR classes 3-4 were viable.

          • MichiganerE

            MW3 had more balance issues than BO1 and AW.

  • Juses

    Plz no exo suits treyarch.

  • Potato Republic

    I find it hilarious how everybody wanted huge changes to CoD and shit, and yet they bitch about it regardless, to put it lightly and shortly.

    I expected nothing less, honestly.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Only people that wanted change was the haters saying “CoD is copy and paste, nothing changes”.

      • Potato Republic

        Not what I kept seeing on this site during BO2.

      • RdJokr

        Not really. You’d have to admit, after Ghosts, so many people were screaming for change, not just haters.

    • Guywithbrains

      Call of Duty community in a nutshell:

      “We want change!” *change comes with AW*
      “Omg this is not Call of Duty anymore!!11”
      “Let’s hope Treyarch goes back to roots so they will save us!”
      *Treyarch title comes*
      “Omg this is so BS!”

      • Potato Republic

        Bingo.

      • jordanxbrookes

        That’s gonna be me after coming across lag and crap hit detection lol

    • Favorite Ape

      Who said they wanted change? Nobody.

  • jordanxbrookes

    I remember when people said we can’t go back to normal movement mechanics. I know for a fact we can since I’ve gone back to Black Ops 2, Black Ops, MW3, MW2 and COD4. I mean sure it’s gonna take a few hours to get used to playing normal, but I’ve done it with no problem.

  • LovekillerX

    This exo suit is actually a nice addition to moving mechanics. It didn’t take long for me to get used to it. In the first match I actually managed movements pretty well.

    I don’t know if exo suit should return in future titles. I mean that I don’t actually care because old movements were also nice so it is whatever to me if I move with exo suit or not. We will see what next Call of Duty developer will bring to the table (Treyarch in this case?)

  • PatPatPat

    What I think they should do is make it so the modes don’t use exo suits, but do what SH did and add a special exo mode, if that makes sense. Basically taking classic mode and switch it, so the game isn’t based around expos, but if you really want to you can just go play with exos

  • BadPiggie123

    I think Sledgehammer should keep Exos to keep their games unique, but Treyarch and IW should stick to regular COD. Same goes for weapon variants and supply drops, both cool things, but should only be in SH’s games to keep it different every year.

    • thetimmon

      eh, i personally like the variants, i’d just like it if they were easier to get, or all of them had a challenge attached to them while also being able to get them in supply drops.

  • I like both mechanics, but I’d prefer Treyarch stick to the old thing or create something new. I’m okay with whatever they decide to do 😛

    • LovekillerX

      Yep. Like I said earlier it is also whatever to me what they will do. Just make sure that we don’t get terrible launch as BO2 did…

  • hunter

    Doesn’t anyone realize that treyarchs next game could be black ops 3 set in a world war 2 time period? I think sledgehammer games should stick with the exo and treyarch should stick with the normal cod feel. While I do like the exo. The maps are too much of a cluster fuck. Spawns get screwed up and theirs absolutely no map strategy at all. That’s the only downsides I can think of as far as the exo goes. Unless they make the maps really big compared to past titles. When I think about it. I think it would be cool if treyarch added that grappling hook they had in the aw compaign to sort of compete with the exo and some of other things as well. I’m sure treyarch has something up their sleeve though.

    • SoulTaker

      That wouldn’t make sense. That’s like if Borderlands the Pre-Sequel was called Borderlands 3 no sense in the time line.

      • hunter

        It was just an idea. Who knows what treyarch is going to do. But I know one thing for sure. I’m really curious as to what they’re going to do.

      • Well if CoD does decide to make a WW2 game, it would be in their best interest to name it BO3 because it is one of the most popular series in the franchise. BO3 would probably get a lot more sales than if was named WaW2 just based on the name. Its just marketing.

        • thetimmon

          it could be something like “black ops .5” to show it’s before black ops 1.

          but, i don’t really like the idea of another WW2 shooter, i’d prefer a more 1960s to 1980s or early 1990s, the guns aren’t shooting too fast (I.E. all the guns in black ops 2 and AW.) but are shooting just fast enough to be fun as hell to use. the AUG was one of my favorite guns in black ops 1, i’d love to see it return. i don’t like the LMG one much, but i’d also like to see the three cod developers work on a cod game that takes all of their games from cod4 to whatever treyarch/infinity wards shits out next and makes a game with every gun, every map, and every gamemode (maybe even a third person mode?)

  • Tom Westley

    If u guys dont lik the exos in MP then play in the classic playlist where there is no use of exos its lik they dont exist

  • shantzonpoint

    I go back and play classic cod every so often. To be honest the games are so slow and boring compared to AW. AW has a multitude of problems but boring isn’t one of them. I think a little larger maps would do exos some good.

    Sure you would get used to slower gameplay again, but now that I’ve had a taste of really fast pace gameplay and how fun it is, I don’t know if I would want to go back.

  • thebulky1cometh

    Food for thought:

    1. Even if you don’t like Destiny, how is it that that game contains some elements of vertical gameplay, on pretty small maps, and has very few issues with spawns? How is this possible? Are the COD teams now really so devoid of talent that they can’t get that right?

    2. I am very glad I didn’t buy into the hype and purchase COD this year.

    3. If the next COD game is another flop, I too am done with COD for good.

    • jooker-jr

      The spawns in AW are good.

      • Taylor

        LOL! You can’t be serious? AW is the only CoD game where people can spawn right in front of you; even the person you just killed. I don’t think I’ve seen so many killcams within killcams before in any game. The amount of times you die from behind is crazy in this game. Anyone that plays Momentum knows that the spawn trapping on most maps ruins what is probably the only good mode in the game.

        • jooker-jr

          I play kill confirmed and TDM most of the time and the spawns there are pretty good.

          The reason why they spawns are “bad” in momentum is that you spawn close to the flag to make the game intense, that’s why you get killed a lot.

          Although spawn trapping is a problem in momentum ( but there’s nothing around it unfortunately. )

          • LOL go watch my DNA bomb fail video, you literally see a guy spawn 3 feet infront of me while I am staring right where he spawns. Then when I am at 29 kills I die from some kid who spawned literally right behind me. You can’t say the spawns are good.

          • jooker-jr

            Glitches happen :/

          • Favorite Ape

            No the spawns are bad. Just get on YouTube and look at the 100+ videos showing that if you don’t believe us.

          • jooker-jr

            I play the game.

          • Favorite Ape

            Funny. So do those players that post videos. Difference: they have proof/credibility and you have…

          • jooker-jr

            Its because they only showing the bad spawns, do I get bad spawns ? Yes, but they are rare.

          • zack

            That happens on purpose to level the playing field for noobs. Just like the lag. Its so the noobs can get kills. Not sbmm, a much more complex system of player “balancing”.

    • Where did you get that AW has any problems with spawns, if you haven’t purchased it ?

      • thebulky1cometh

        I’m basing this off others’ posts. For instance, see jordanxbrookes below. He says, “exo suits screw up an already screwed up spawn system even more.”

        I used to be a COD fan, but once they started treating their fans like sheep that would buy whatever slop they put out, I backed way off.

        • ..double post

        • Honestly, it’s pretty difficult to make perfect spawns in this game, The reason is that you are able (with help of exo movement) to cross the map very quickly. I say that spawns are OK and really can’t be better. You are getting killed dozen of times from back (just by a nature of this game) and wrong placed spawns causes very insignificant amount of these deaths (I don’t play FFA so I don’t know how good are spawns there).

  • noah

    next cod will have jet packs where your gonna have to watch your fuel with filling stations built in the walls

  • Stefan Lang

    Idk what to say about this. I love exos but I don’t think Treyarch will use them. If their game is closely developed like BO2 but 10x better we are sure in for a treat. I really didnt play WAW so I dont know how to feel about that. It’d be cool if they had an expansion like Battlefield Vietnam though. But then people would cry that they have to pay for it.

  • SoulTaker

    I personally like the exos although sometimes they can be annoying when playing against a very good team, but you can’t win them all.

    • jooker-jr

      I once played FFA with someone in max prestige, can’t even touch him.

  • wumbo

    The next game is going to having exodildos and every time you shoot I goes deeper allowing the person to get what they pay for.

    • jooker-jr

      INNOVATION !

  • KRYSESTV

    I think a COD in the past time with Exo suits will be great (:

    Lets face it without exo suit, everything is just too damn slow now.

    • jooker-jr

      That’s why I only want SH to have EXO suits ( because I don’t want to be a standard. )

  • Humza Qureshi

    Obviously no exos next year, but it’s going to be so weird without them.

  • Siddu

    I wouldn’t mind with or without exo suits, enjoyed both styles equally, thought I hope we can switch between cods that use exos or not

  • Tep Kok

    BO2 is just as movement-based (jumpshotting, strafe jumping corners, strafe gunfights that last longer than .5 seconds because Treyarch actually gives their guns reasonable killtimes, etc) as AW is, yet it’s played almost on a completely horizontal plane. That says a whole lot about both SHG and 3arc’s game design.

    • I think it’s common knowledge. That Treyarch as the only developers know, how to make decent CoD with simple rules.

  • meow

    exo movements do not suit the use of a controller. rather have – like BO2 on PC where movement speed is increased (even more so then AW)

  • IIPlayer99II

    I like the exo movement and all but I hope exo suits do not become a part of cod as a whole. For sledgehammer it’s fine as their thing kind of like zombies was treyarch’s thing until now when sledgehammer made exo zombies

  • NRG

    EXO MOVEMENTS ARE NOT REALLY USEFUL IN COD SINCE THE KILL TIME IS TOO FAST, THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS GUNFIGHTS IN COD, WHY WOULD YOU HAVE ALL THOSE MOVEMENTS IF YOU COULD DIE IN A FRACTION OF A SECOND?. YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TIME TO MOVE WHEN YOUR ENEMY SEES YOU AND SHOOTS YOU.

    • Rav

      thats a lie if youre good enough you take a jump, dash to side, even if opponent is shooting from you at behind, you can kill them. but you can only do this IF youre good enough. (you have to prob play like 1 hour everyday to master this) 😛

    • Well in a laggy game, when most of time you are shooting ghosts, quick (exo) movement helps a lot 🙂

  • CookieChairman

    Should Sledgehammer keep Exo movements to themselves? Maybe. I’m personally a fan. Will Sledgehammer keep Exo movements to themselves? Absolutely not.

    • CookieChairman

      Let’s make a deal. If 2015’s CoD is not set in WWII or alternate-history WWII, and does not contain something really similar to Exo movements, I will eat my hat.

  • Favorite Ape

    I hope not.

  • Technifyy

    Even though I’ve grown up with Call of Duty and have every single one of them, I honestly considered giving up Call of Duty after that one train wreck that was Ghosts. Don’t get me wrong, it had some redeeming qualities, but overall, IMO it was the worst CoD to date. Then Advanced Warfare shows up. I can’t describe how amazing I find this game. It sucks that I don’t have a next-gen console so I can love it that much more. Honestly, the only thing keeping me on CoD is the fact that this game is so fast-paced and the Exo’s are just pure freedom in the game. Also, I love what they’re doing with Exo Zombies. I just hope they keep adding the Exo suit, because at this point, Advanced Warfare is probably (SORRY MW2, I still love you) my favorite CoD ever.

    • jooker-jr

      We need some positive people like you in CI 🙂

  • Duffy44

    Lol all you CoD fan boys! If you want to try something thats fun, but yet challenging… Try Battlefield. Hey, you can fly planes and drive tanks and vehicles too!

    • Technifyy

      What a fag… CoD is amazing because it’s fun and fast-paced. If we wanted to do something that takes longer than watching paint dry, we would just play Battlefield, but we don’t. Battlefield ended after Bad Company 2. I’ve had BF3 and BF4 and just got rid of them because they’re just garbage and boring. Don’t get me wrong though, visually they’re stunning

  • I hope Treyarch comes back strong with badass CoD, recoil which is hard to handle and as little bullsh*t as possible. Unless they will give us non-laggy connection, I don’t want to see Exo again.

    • thetimmon

      “recoil which is hard to handle” huh, i don’t remember black ops 2… black ops 1.. or WaW doing that, but, as for your “as little bullshit as possible” comment, i agree, not sure what you classify as bullshit, but snipers were bullshit in BO2, impossible to play. and i would’ve liked to see more guns then the MSMC and the AN-94 when i actually find a lobby without snipers.

  • Overachiever

    If you think about it 3arc never even brought back the lean from ghosts so maybe we won’t see EXO making a return, I hope.

    • zack

      treyarch hasnt even made a game since ghosts to even put lean back into. Advanced Warfare is the first game since ghosts and that was made by sledgehammer. And lean was pretty worthless unlike the exo….

  • Overachiever

    GTA San Andreas remastered?

    • Overachiever

      joke ^^

  • zack

    Sledgehammer better hope Treyarch doesn’t use exos because if they do its gonna put advanced warfare to shame.

  • Mason

    I agree with XLKILLA, that if Treyarch has EXO suits I think I might be done with COD. I think COD 2015 should have small to medium size maps and NO large maps at ALL! Plus they need to have OG zombies not Exo Zombies! I enjoy Treyarch the most and hope they don’t disapoint me. We need another Nuketown…

  • Michael

    I don’t want to see a single EXO suit in this next COD.

  • Tim Vikouski

    if the maps were bigger this could of been a good game but small maps means terrible spawns because they were to dam lazy for a 3 year in the making to spend any time on a proper spawn system but all they did was made guys jumps haft way across the map what a waste of time

  • Ghost

    All you people expecting a WW2 game from Treyarch. What would you do if it’s BO3 in the future…I would love a WW2 game but don’t get your hopes high so you don’t get disappointed.

  • Slingshot // Twitch/iiillilili

    i dont think i could ever play without an exo suit again anymore lol

  • BHCMax

    imo, the exo should not have been a “stock” feature, but should have been given as a killstreak or a perk, or as an equipment attachment at the cost of losing a perk slot

  • Matteo X

    Add wall running like Titanfall and movements are state of grace!

  • the never mentioned

    I don’t know why some people hate AW because it’s a good game just like the old COD games only different and original (only ghosts sucks)
