Modern Warfare 4 Could Bring Back Killstreaks

JI of RGN takes the time to introduce the notion we have overlooked about the forthcoming Call of Duty title which seeks to replace its predecessor Black Ops II. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Killstreaks gifts/ordnance is one of the noobest/cheapest elements i've ever seen in videogame's multiplayer .

Battlefield FTW, IMO .

Well, the problem is though; COD is technically a "twitch shooter" like Quake, Doom and Unreal. Killstreaks continue that tradition with near insta-death results.

I suppose if you are against insta-kill style killstreaks in a twitch shooter, then yes, you are playing the wrong shooter.

Neither Battlefield or Call of Duty IMO.

Such petty FPS battles are so childish now.

not everyone likes huge maps I myself don't have the patience for huge maps i like small action packed not too much camping action, ive played battlefield and MAG and all i remember in those games were alot of running to get to the action and then dying then alot of running again

TDM shrinks down the maps considerably in BF3... Conquest offers more immersion than any kind of DM and vehicles offer a workaround to the larger map size. I prefer COD visually when it comes the the guns and attachments but it's the same game year after year and I'm just not stupid enough to fall into Activisions trap... If EA starts that with BF then I'll ditch that series too and find something else. Destruction adds so much... it might even help out COD.

Well then you need to stick with mindless action of cod

Bring back STOPPING POWER damn it its the only thing that counters ghost.
RyuCloudStrife  +   862d ago
Take ghost out, you don't want to be seen? Use Counter UAV, earn it!
perdie  +   862d ago
obviously you don't understand balance. There has to be something to counter UAV(besides another killstreak) or else the UAV would be overpowered. Even for that split second you appear on a radar before it gets shot down or counter-UAVed, that is still an advantage.
Ducky  +   862d ago
Playing smart and not relying on a UAV all the time is an easy way of countering ghost.

If MW4 has 3 fixed killstreaks, increased recoil on all guns, shotguns as primary weapons and more symmetrical maps (for a more balanced spawn system) then I'll probably buy it.

Basically I want CoD4 for next gen consoles. Make it happen IW!
Hitman0769  +   862d ago
omg that would be awesome. and dont forget no input lag and no server lag!!! i think its possible with next gen, very possible!! they might not even need a new engine...

@coolmast3r What is the last one you played? and lol. if you don't like it but yet you still choose to come to the article... hmmm..

Yeah I completely forgot about the lag compensation stuff. Although I think if they lowered the pace of the game just slightly (more like CoD4) then lag wouldn't actually cause much of a problem. Also forgot to mention they need to increase players health or reduce the power of guns to make accuracy more important. In the most recent ones it has become a game of whoever can land the first shot wins the gunfight.

CoD4 was perfect. Every map was great, every weapon was useful, the killstreaks were well balanced, recoil was done well, perks were balanced. Everything felt right.

That's what CoD should be. They should follow CoD4's formula. I'm hoping that for the next Vita game they just do an "HD" remaster of CoD4 using the newer engine.

MW3 is the COD game that started Scorestreaks. Doubt they go back to killstreaks since they were started in MW series.

Not as fleshed out as it is in Black Ops 2, but you got points added to your streak chain by capping flags, taking domination flags, etc.

Ok, they are called pointstreaks in MW3. I don't get what there is to disagree with me here.

You would get one bar filled in every flag you cap. So for example, to get a UAV, you could get 2 flag caps and 1 kill. Or 2 kills, 1 flag cap. Etc.

if CoD MW4 have bigger maps, more balance weapons and better spawning (CoD invent spawn trapping) then I might buy it.But it have too be for next-gen only.I understand PS3 & 360 will break records again if released on those systems.But I dont care about sales I care about gameplay.And I truly want too see an new engine and the only way i see that if CoD 4 is an exclusive next-gen title which will not happen...

But for in reality this will be the same CoD unless Activision proves me wrong.Hopefully they finally decide too make an CoD better then CoD:MW...

Should have left it COD4 style. It was simple, yet effective. However, dedicated servers, gun adjustments, spawn fixing etc... those are bigger issues imo.

there will still be lag switchers and hackers

I think the scorestreak system is better than killstreaks because it gives players who concentrate more on a support style a chance to earn rewards. I'm more of a support style player because my clan mates are the runner gunners. My buddies know they can count on me to take down most air support, sentrys, guardians, and any booby trap type things. I provide a crucial service to my team while they rack up the majority of our kill count and the scorestreak system over killstreak means I can play the way I play and still earn my rewards. I love the scorestreak system and hope they stick with it for the future of the series because I know I'm not the only support style player out there.
lsujester  +   862d ago
I'm the same way. I chuck many an EMP grenade to take out enemy placements and fire many an anti-air rocket after UAVs and helicopters. Then I fire my FAL as much as my finger will let me until someone takes me out.

"Modern Warfare 4 is likely to be heading to the game industry with its old Killstreak system"

Says who?

No source, no credible information supporting your deduction - this is pure speculation. There's nothing 'likely' about anything at the moment. For all you know at this point, they could continue with Scorestreaks.

Most pointless, empty article I've read this month.

This article is such a waste. You could writhe thousands of articles about what sequels could feature or not.

Ghost is cheapest perk ever...

Please make it like Modern Warfare 1, its just amazing

Map design is important, they got it right with MW3 but not with BO2. Notice how many second floors there is in BO2, all of them are being used as camping spots. It wasn't like that in MW3. Sure there was some seconds floors in 2 or 3 maps but it wasn't a big deal.
Derekvinyard13  +   861d ago
Il go for bf4
iizMonterZ_  +   860d ago
Really dont care.. Either or is fine. Pointstreaks are a little to easy though.
