Infinity Ward explains why 2019 game is not Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4

Published

One of the biggest surprises behind Call of Duty 2019 is the name: it’s just Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, with no numbers attached. 

Many expected (and extensively rumored) that this year’s title would be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, but Infinity Ward discussed why they decided against doing that.

During our studio visit at Infinity Ward, Infinity Ward’s Studio Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki, who was previously a Naughty Dog developer and worked on Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s story, explained the decision behind not making Modern Warfare 4 but rather just Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. 

The decision revolved around the fact that they did not want this year’s game to be restricted to the timeline and story aspects of what the original Modern Warfare trilogy had. They wanted to make this new Modern Warfare real. The game had to be realistic, authentic, and gritty, and turn into a game that is very realistic ‘ripped from the headlines’ and is about what’s happening in our world now, allowing players to feel a connection to it because they see it happening in the news today. Modern Warfare is a reimagining of the entire series and what the series can be in terms of authenticity. 

With Modern Warfare trilogy, while it was a modern game, the story arcs that existed were not real in a sense that can be related to events from the world. Modern Warfare 3 ended with Russia attacking America, and Kurosaki said they did not see a path in which that could be transformed into something that is real and relatable while also maintaining the Modern Warfare story arc that existed before it. And in this fictional stories, it’s hard to have a deep connection with what’s happening inside of the story (beyond characters), and Infinity Ward wanted to change that. 

There will be characters from the Modern Warfare series back, like Capitan Price, but Infinity Ward declined to share information on any other potential characters’ being in this game. 

While this is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in the name, there’s no connections to the story of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, MW2, or MW3. This is a new story, with a new arc for the different characters. It’s not a prequel or a sequel. 

Infinity Ward’s Studio Head also mentioned that there are many original Infinity Ward developers, those who left after MW2, back at the studio working on this game. During our presentation, many of those developers spoke about what they were working on for Modern Warfare and why they were excited to reimagine the series eight years later. Some discussed that it was an incredible experience to be back at the studio to work on reimagining the series that kickstarted many of their careers in the gaming industry. 

As such, this year’s game is just Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Best Kilo 141 loadouts to use in Warzone & Modern Warfare

The Kilo 141 is the META weapon in Warzone Season 6, so here’s the best attachments to maximize its potential in Warzone and Modern Warfare.

Published

The Kilo 141 is the undisputed best Assault Rifle in Season 6 of Warzone, so here’s the best loadout to dominate Verdansk.

The Kilo 141 is favored for its incredible accuracy and damage potential at range. It’s in almost every competitive Warzone player’s kit, and was used by streamer Aydan to break the Solo vs Squads world-record with 60 kills.

Whether taking out snipers from far away or pushing enemies at medium-range, the Kilo 141 will excel. It’s the first Assault Rifle to unlock, which makes it accessible to any player picking up Warzone and Modern Warfare.

Here is the META loadout for the Kilo 141 in the battle royale, and the best setup for MW’s multiplayer.

Warzone

  • Monolothic Suppressor
  • Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler Barrel
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 60 Round Mags

This is the META Kilo 141 build which maximizes its range and accuracy in Warzone. The majority of competitive players and streamers use this setup simply because it’s the best.

The Monolithic Suppressor increases the weapon’s effective damage range and keeps you hidden from the mini-map. The benefit of this attachment means you can take out multiple enemies from medium-range before they even know where you are.

The Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler barrel further increases the Kilo’s effective distance, allowing it to deal a lot of damage in almost any situation. Combined with the VLK 3.0x Optic, you’ll have no trouble taking out snipers and extremely far-off targets.

The VLK optic provides the clearest view of enemies. This unobtrusive sight gives a decent amount of magnification and there’s even a hidden reduction to recoil when using this attachment, so your Kilo will be even more accurate.

The Commando Foregrip almost removes all recoil on the Kilo. Pulling down on your thumbstick or mouse to control the recoil will keep the weapon completely still. Hitting headshots and downing far away targets won’t be a problem.

It’s also worth putting on a 60 Round Magazine. Enemies in Warzone will usually have armor, and when facing a squad you want to get as many shots downrange as possible without having to reload. Also, with the prevalence of self-revive, it’s worth finishing off downed enemies before they can revive themselves.

Modern Warfare multiplayer

  • G.I Mini Reflex
  • FSS Close Quarters Stock
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 50 Round Mags
  • Rubberized Grip Tape

The Kilo 141 is also well-suited for range in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer. Hang back and play as a dominant AR to clear and defend objectives and you’ll find this Kilo extremely effective.

The iron sights on the Kilo are quite obtrusive so it’s worth using a red dot sight. The G.I Mini Reflex is our personal favorite, but experiment and find the one that works best for you.

With multiplayer being faster paced than Warzone, the FFS Close Quarters Stock is a valuable attachment. This allows you to ADS quicker so you can quickly snap onto enemies in close quarters engagements.

The Commando Foregrip and Rubberized Grip Tape give you great control over the weapon. While using the Kilo 141’s range, accuracy is vital to beating out the other weapons on the map.

50 Round Mags will reduce the need to reload without slowing down the weapon as much as the 60 Round Mags. Being able to kill several enemies and still continuing to fire will allow you to stay on objectives longer, giving your team the upper hand.

Try out these Kilo 141 builds yourself and dominate Verdansk and Modern Warfare’s multiplayer.

How to easily kill Juggernauts in Warzone & Modern Warfare

The juggernaut can be a tough opponent to defeat in Warzone and Modern Warfare, so follow these tips to give you the upper hand.

Published

on

Juggernauts can be tricky to take down in Warzone and Modern Warfare, so here are some tips to make sure you come out on top.

Juggernauts are players who have equipped a heavy suit of armor that takes considerable damage to kill. They also carry a mini-gun, which makes them deadly up close.

Although the Juggernaut is now harder to acquire in Warzone, it’s very easy for a Juggernaut to end your game if you’re not fully prepared.

In Warzone streamer Aydan’s world-record Solo vs. Squads run, his last opponent was a player in a Juggernaut suit. This article will analyze how Aydan managed to beat the Juggernaut and give some more tips to help in all situations.

Aydan vs the Juggernaut

After beating the Solo vs Squads world-record, Aydan only had one more opponent left to win the game with 60 kills. This last opponent was a Juggernaut.

The good news is that you can see the Juggernaut on the mini-map at all times. If you pull up your map and mark it, you can also follow its location on the screen. Aydan used this information to get the upper hand.

To start the fight, Aydan kept his distance and never gave it a clear shot on him. The final circle was in the hangars in front of the airfield, so he took advantage of its slow movement by leading it around the back of the hangar, then relocating to a new spot.

After getting distance from the Juggernaut, he set himself up on a ‘head glitch.’ A head glitch is where you stand behind an object, and you can see everything in front of you, but the enemy can only see the top of your head. With the Juggernaut’s inaccurate mini-gun, Aydan gave himself the clear advantage in this situation and managed to deal a lot of damage without taking any in return.

The final circle pulled away from Aydan, leading him into the open airfield. The Juggernaut, fearing his skill, took cover in the hangar, allowing him to relocate to a set of rocks on the way. From behind these rocks, Aydan used the head glitch advantage and kept peaking from random parts of the rock to keep the enemy guessing. By aiming for the head and landing jump shots, he finally beat the Juggernaut.

Although Aydan is one of the world’s best Warzone players, you can deploy his strategies to beat a Juggernaut.

To summarize Aydan’s tactics:

  1. Mark the Juggernaut on the map
  2. Keep your distance
  3. Get on a head glitch
  4. Aim for the head

More strategies

These extra strategies can also be deployed in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer if someone calls in the Juggernaut as a Killstreak.

Use FMJ rounds

This strategy comes courtesy of YouTuber TheXclusiveAce. FMJ rounds deal “about 50% more damage” to the Juggernaut than standard rounds.

It might be worth keeping a weapon with the FMJ Perk equipped in your loadout section. When the final loadout drop comes down, if there’s a Juggernaut marked on the map, it’s worth taking this weapon.

Use Killstreaks

Reddit user -Arhaeil- shared that placing a Cluster Strike or an Airstrike on top of it will take a Juggernaut out. Combine a Killstreak with a well-thrown Stun Grenade, and the already slow Juggernaut won’t be able to escape in time. You can also distract it with a Riot Shield to make the fight even easier.

Although a Juggernaut can be a tough beast to kill, deploying these strategies will give you more of a fighting chance.
