Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

New images and details regarding the weapons in Infinite Warfare revealed

Published

on

GameInformer has posted new details about the weapons in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Their site says that Infinite Warfare has the most weapons ever seen in a Call of Duty title. Weapons range from ballistic weapons all the way to energy based weapons. Infinity Ward has worked hard to make many weapons feel modern and plausible design for weapons.

The weapons in Infinite Warfare come from four fictional weapon manufacturers in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare universe:

  • Kendall Ballistics: This is the most traditional manufacturer, creating military-grade fare that will be immediately recognizable to Call of Duty fans and weapon gurus. These are more like futuristic takes on weapons that are even available today, like a M4 outfitted with an OLED GPS display.
  • Mashimo: For lack of a better term, Mashimo is the “budget” energy weapon manufacturer. That doesn’t make their guns any less effective or desirable, though. These are high-energy, fast-firing weapons that can support multiple functionality, like a submachine-gun that you can tilt to the side to let loose a shotgun blast. Because you’re using energy, you can unleash a stream of gunfire and then just unload the rest of your pack for some close-range punch. Energy presents interesting ammo management choices as well, as you can expend a magazine, then place your power cell into your recharge pack to start getting extra value.
  • Fujiwara: If Mashimo is the budget car, Fujiwara is the Ferrari.  These are high class energy weapons with extravagant designs and elaborate options. We’ll see some of the coolest and most “out there” weapon designs from this manufacturer, including the MOD2. It’s a submachine gun effective at mid/long ranges that you can rotate and pull in half to turn into dual pistols, perfect for when the fight gets close.
  • EDI/Atomic Dynamics: These two manufacturers focus on experimental weapons and secret prototypes, so when you’re looking for the heavy hitters these are the go-to options.  EDI’s variants are high quality stuff, while Atomic Dynamics works with more raw materials, yielding guns with lots of exposed parts. When you’re dealing with rail guns and charge weaponry, it’s all about substance over style.

GameInformer also confirms that there will be customization options for the weapons in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Alongside the new weapons, Infinity Ward is introducing new lethal and tactical grenades and more. We saw a few of these in the Ship Assault gameplay video; one includes the ability to cause a small anti-gravity pocket, essentially making enemies unable to move. The game also features power riot-shields, and a new seeker-grenade which can run along walls and find and take down targets.

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.

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.
