Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare — 6 Combat Rigs Revealed

Published

on

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare introduces a new Combat Rigs system, which is 6 special characters that feature different abilities for players to use. Combat Rigs offer Payloads and Traits.

Payloads are similar to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Specialist Weapons and abilities, in which the character gets a certain weapon or ability to use for a limited period of time. It’s exactly the same as Black Ops 3 to activate — press L1 + R1 once the meter in the bottom right has filled.

Here’s the six Combat Rigs:

FTL:

IW_MP_desktop_01-FTL

Payloads:

  • Erasers
  • FTL Jump (traverse a space)
  • Phase Shift

Traits:

  • Supercharge
  • Perception (gives the player more awareness than ever before in Call of Duty…if theres an enemy looking at you, edges of HUD will light and let you know someone is looking at you)
  • Power-slide

MERC:

IW_MP_desktop_01-Merc

Payloads:

  • Steel Dragon (weapon which helps suppress a closed combat area)
  • Bull Charge
  • Reactive Armor

Traits:

  • Infusion (health will come back faster)
  • Man-At-Arms
  • Shock Wave

Warfigher:

IW_MP_desktop_01-Warfighter

Payloads:

  • The Claw (powerful weapon, its a rapid spread shot weapon that takes out many enemies with ADS. Shots recocheit around)
  • Overdrive
  • Combat Focus

Traits:

  • Ping
  • Persistance (changes the way you interact with score streaks….instead of resetting on death, they will persist. Come at increased cost. Cannot wrap score streaks)
  • Resupply

Stryker:

IW_MP_desktop_01-Stryker

Payloads:

  • Gravity Vortex
  • Micro Turret
  • Centurion

Traits:

  • Relay
  • Trophy Drone (supports team…drone that flies and self detonates and take out any grenades. Players can get only one per life.)
  • Hardened

Phantom:

IW_MP_desktop_01-Phantom

Payloads:

  • Ballista EM3 (3 shot rail gun, sticks people to a wall)
  • Active Camo
  • Pulsar

Traits:

  • Marked Target
  • Rearguard (every time you spawn, you have an armored shield on your back)
  • Heightened Senses

Synaptic:

IW_MP_desktop_01-Synaptic

Payloads:

  • Qualizer
  • Reaper (lethal melee, crouches down, and charges at you)
  • Rewind

Traits:

  • Rushdown
  • Propulsion
  • Combat Burst (get short burst in speed after every kill)

A big feature that separates Combat Rigs from Specialists is that you can actually change your Combat Rig mid-match. So if you want to adjust your style during the match, you can easily do so.

Estimated total number of players on PlayStation 4 for each Call of Duty title since 2013

Published

on

Last week, Sony launched the PS4 My Life campaign which allows PlayStation 4 players to see some of their stats. Statistics include overall play-time, top 3 most-played games, rarest trophy, and more.

The rarest trophy statistic provides the exact number of players who earned said trophy. Using this data, Redditor /u/Kalinine has created a report on /r/CallofDuty estimating the total number of players each Call of Duty title since 2013 received on PlayStation 4.

It’s important to note that these are simply rough estimations – Activision has not confirmed these numbers.

Black Ops 4’s numbers will appear significantly low due to releasing only 2 months ago. The influx of players from Christmas also have yet to arrive.

via /u/Kalinine | /r/CallofDuty

In order of highest player count to lowest…

  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops III – 54.7M
  2. Call of Duty: WWII – 25.5M
  3. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – 21.3M
  4. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – 18.4M
  5. Call of Duty: Ghosts – 13.2M
  6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered – 10.6M
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – 9.8M

Black Ops III’s player count is incredibly high, likely to it being available for free to all PlayStation Plus members from June 12th to July 11th, 2018.

While this is a rough idea of total player counts, there’s still many variables which contribute to its inaccuracy.

  • It’s assumed that the numbers are global, however this cannot be confirmed.
  • It’s not known whether these numbers are players who launched the titles or simply had them installed.
  • According to Redditors, the numbers span only from November 20th to December 4th, 2018.
  • The author of the report did not include Trophies with a percentage lower than 0.5% to reduce inaccuracy.

What are your thoughts on these numbers? While it may seem worrying to see Black Ops 4’s numbers low, it’s important to take into account all of the aforementioned points.
