Our Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer Observations from XP2011




-Felt like I was playing Call of Duty 4:MW with MW2’s graphics and U.I.
-Graphics and Menus appear identical to MW2 with the exception of an image of a real soldier in the background similar to Black Ops.
-Killstreaks or Air-support were rarely called in the games I played, mostly gun on gun gameplay like 402 promised.
-However it seemed like the UAV was called every 2 seconds.
-Respawns were VERY well balanced. I was never spawn camped and always respawned by my team.
-“Village” map seemed very similar to Black Ops “Jungle Map” with an added Cavarn/Huge cave.
-Facebook integration was already built-in to the “after-action” report when scrolled all the way to the right however it required you to log-in.
-When spectating in 3rd-person, there is no “Texture Loading” delay like there was in Black Ops.
-MW3 Multiplayer is the best CoD yet in my opinion.
-“Kill Confirmed” WILL dominate. Best gameplay mode. PERIOD.
-The Perk & Killstreak list we LEAKED back on August 18th was real 😉


-Being a huge Zombie fan, I thought Spec-Ops was better than zombies in my opinion.
-Captures the tention of being “over-run” like in zombies.
-You have to make a mad dash to the armories between rounds.
-Felt like we were fighting for our lives.
-Originally we were upset when they announced only 2-players, but now we can tell it was clearly designed as a “buddy system”.
-No way it would work with 4-players, “suspense” would be lost.
-Spec-Ops was the talk of the show, everyone we talked to “liked” multiplayer but “loved” Spec-Ops.


Visual Observations:
-The ACOG and RED-DOT from COD4 return (Trijicon ACOG BAC)
-402 tweeted that there were 2 different MP5’s (CoD4 MP5 and the MP5K). Spec-Ops version is called the MP5k however it is visually IDENTICAL to the “Mp5” from multiplayer.
-The new “Dual Scope” is now called the “Hybrid Scope”.
-Hybrid scope is visually different on the SMG. No flip-up magnifier, instead it has the MW2 Red-Dot on top of a Elcan SpecterDR scope.
-USP pistol makes a return for the 3rd time. It now has a Streamlight TLR2 flashlight attached.
-New Colt CM901 or the “CM901” is the .308 variant based on the wide magazine. It fires and reloads EXACTLY like the Scar-H from MW2 (also a .308).
-The new MP5 in singleplayer has a front grip in most of the trailers however in MP it’s missing the front grip and is not an option.
-UMP is visually identical to the MW2 UMP.
-AK47 visually different but fires and reloads identically to CoD4 & MW2.
-Dragonuv SVD is now “modernized”
-Killstreak “Strafe-Run” has 5 Apache Helicopters going straight accross the map in “V” formation. Damage similar to stealth bomber.


Will we go to XP2012 next year?? fuck yeah..

Warzone players call for devs to add permanent Rebirth Island playlists

Rebirth Island has become a popular map for Warzone players, but the community is calling for permanent playlists like Verdansk.



Warzone Rebirth Island

Rebirth Island is one of the maps Call of Duty: Warzone can battle on, but players have begun to call for the developers of the battle royale to make permanent playlists for the popular map.

The integration between Black Ops Cold War and Warzone saw Rebirth Island become a playable map for the Call of Duty battle royale.

It has become a popular pick for players as of late, as many community members enjoy Rebirth Island’s faster pace and action-packed nature.

However, a major point of frustration for players has been the lack of permanent playlists for Rebirth Island, as the game’s developers consistently change the available playlists instead of having a static set in the same way that Verdansk does.

The discussion around the desire for Raven Software to implement permanent playlists to Warzone for Rebirth Island was thrust into the spotlight when the most recent playlist update for the battle royale took away Resurgence Quads and replaced it with Resurgence Trios.

Community member LegionofGrixis took to the official subreddit for Warzone and started a thread where they stated their frustration over the fact that the developers constantly change the Rebirth Island playlists and how Trios are less favored by many Warzone players compared to Quads.

This sentiment was shared by popular Warzone content creator JGOD who had a simple statement on the topic.

There is no doubt that players who primarily play on Rebirth Island would be excited to see a permanent set of playlists that do not ever change be added to the Black Ops Cold War map.

It remains to be seen if the developers of the Call of Duty battle royale will ever implement this feature, but we will be sure to inform you and update this piece if permanent playlists are added to the Rebirth Island map for Warzone.

Is a GTA Online ban wave coming in July 2021?

Reports of a potential GTA Online ban wave coming in July 2021 has become a major point of discussion in the popular game’s community recently.



GTA Online Ban Wave July 2021

One of the major topics currently taking the spotlight in the world of GTA Online is a potential ban wave that may be taking place in July 2021.

There has been plenty of excitement in the GTA Online community recently with the release of the Los Santos Tuners update, which brought a whole new set of cars and other exciting pieces of content for players to enjoy.

While the Los Santos Tuners update has injected plenty of excitement into the community, recent reports of a massive GTA Online ban wave happening in July 2021 have plenty of players curious about whether or not it will happen and what players it could be potentially targeting.

GTA Online Ban Wave July 2021

According to a report by DualSHOCKERS, rumors of a GTA Online ban wave happening in July 2021 started thanks to videos circulating on TikTok.

These rumors have stated that players who utilized frozen money, save wizard, or car duplication glitch exploits will be targeted by this rumored massive wave of bans by Rockstar Games.

However, Rockstar Games has not made any official announcements regarding a potential GTA Online ban wave happening in July 2021.

There have been plenty of false rumors spread around on TikTok in the video game community, so it would not be surprising to see that the rumors of a GTA Online ban wave happening in July 2021 be confirmed to be false in the near future.

However, the exploits that these rumors have focused on do fall under what Rockstar Games has stated it will ban players for when it comes to abusing game mechanics, so it would not be unfathomable that players who have utilized these exploits could be targeted by this rumored wave of bans.

As with any piece of unconfirmed information, it is important to take this rumor of a ban wave happening in July 2021 with a grain of salt.

The theme of the Apex Legends Emergence launch trailer focused on change and how all of the characters in the game have evolved over their lives, with Seer being the main focus as expected.

In typical launch trailer fashion for Apex Legends, the Emergence video showed off the new character of Seer using his abilities to take down his enemies.

These abilities revolve around a set of microdrones that he keeps contained in a piece of equipment attached to his chest.

You can check out Seer using his abilities in the Apex Legends Emergence launch trailer below:

Following the trailer’s premiere at EA Play Live 2021, which also showcased the new Battlefield Portal game mode for Battlefield 2042, Apex Legends Game Director Chad Griener took the stage and explained some more details regarding the abilities of Seer.

According to Greiner, Seer is similar to Bloodhound in that his abilities focus on tracking enemies. Players will find that a heartbeat sensor will appear when they aim down the sights of their weapons when playing as Seer, which will help them find enemies near them.

Seer’s tactical ability will allow him to send out a fleet of microdrones from his chest to track down enemy players, while his ultimate ability will see Seer create a giant sphere with his drones that sense enemies who go through it.

There is no doubt that plenty of players will be excited to try out all of the Seer abilities shown off in the adrenaline-fueled Apex Legends Emergence launch trailer.
