Modern Warfare 2 To Have No Multiplayer Trophies

True to their word, Infinity Ward has no multiplayer trophies in their next game, only single player and co-op trophies are available. (PS3, Xbox 360)

Infinity ward never does online achievements or trophies.

Thank God for that.

I really don't like collecting online trophies, they're such a hassle at least to me (example GTA4).
Maybe bec im more of a single player kindof person

I agree, I enjoy multiplayer but when it comes to achievements, I feel it takes the fun out of what achievement are supposted to bring.
gaffyh  +   1788d ago
The guy said himself in the interview, never say never, so they could have added online achievements. I'm glad they didn't though, because I hate it when your trophy/achievement relies on other people in your team doing good. Also my connection is quite crap, and I get disconnected in a lot of games, and in KZ2 for example, it wouldn't even update your stats so it would have been a waste of 20 mins. :(

Yep, they never have.
SeraphimBlade  +   1788d ago
Yeah, thank God for this. Beating online opponents, ranking up, and moving up the leaderboards are rewards in themselves. That and I totally suck online.

Online achievements just ruin the experience. When I hear "hey wanna boost for achievements?" "Sure"....I get upset having to be stuck in that game and cant quit becuase of the penalties.

Then like in Gears of War 1, you had mad noobs just grenade tagging or chainsawing for that damn achievements which could have been made for public instead of ranked matches.

Never cared about trophies, never will

This also goes for Xbox 360 achievements in case any one else was wondering. IW doesn't do online cheevos/trophies. The only people that do online achievements the right way is Bungie.

i think it should/can have some multiplayer achievements.
well, unlocks and challenges make up for that.
Clarence Callahan  +   1777d ago
i'm glad there aren't any, online trophies suck imo, but if there would be any i'd like ranking trophies, like reach lvl 75, or unlock prestige mode, because those are trophies everyone will get on the go, and they are very different than for example: kill 3 opponents with 1 grenade, which sucks...
so i like it how it is.
ThatCanadianGuy  +   1788d ago
Ahh..trophies, the superior version of achievements.
deadreckoning666  +   1788d ago
Seriously, wats the difference? Tell me, I'd really love to know.
Elvfam511  +   1788d ago
The Platinum trophy
Is the difference between them
Saaking  +   1788d ago
Trophies are more meaningful than a number that just gets bigger. With trophies you say "look at my trophy collection" with achievements you say "look at that big number" Trophies are better.
JonnyBadfinger  +   1788d ago
Why would it be any different to the Achievements??

@ Saaking
I see your bubbles are disappearing. well we cant have that, now can we. Have a bubble on me. And hopefully everyone else will chip you in one aswell.
Stryfeno2  +   1788d ago
Ahh..trophies, the achievements wannabe.
gaffyh  +   1788d ago
You could call the Xbox 360 a PS2 wannabe. Face it dude, everyone copies each other, the main difference is whether they improve on what they copy.
snake_eater  +   1788d ago
Trophies > Achievements
PS3 a superior console with a superior reward system.

360 contingent continues to deny that... their little minds cannot handle the truth...
Relientk77  +   1788d ago
In a game thats so heavy and known for the great multiplayer, im kinda suprised it doesnt have any online trophies
Serjikal_Strike  +   1788d ago
it already rewards you with
ranking up...(badges)or(medals)so why the need for trophies on multiplayer
evrfighter  +   1788d ago
well your gonna buy it anyway, why go through the trouble?
RockmanII7  +   1788d ago
Tropies are a rip-off of achievements
Avatars are a rip-off of Miis
So does Sony Steal from Nintendo?

Disagree for what we are getting a Zelda clone 3D Dot Hero

I'M excited for 3D Dot Heroes
LukaX23  +   1788d ago
They confirmed this weeks ago... 'nuf said.
MSpence516  +   1788d ago
Ummmm thats the way we want it. We don't need idiots causing their team to lose so that they can get a damn cheevo/trophy.
BasilMarceaux  +   1788d ago
I applaud this decision....
I think people can really screw up multiplayer rounds by being achievement whores.

I mean something like "win __ rounds in team deathmatch" is ok but when you have things like "stick __ enemies with grenades in a round" you get people running around doing nothing but try to stick people, and therefore possibly screwing their team over.
MSpence516  +   1788d ago
I agree, the "win so many" would be nice to add in, as long as the "do this in a match" ones stay away.
No FanS Land  +   1788d ago
I hate competitive achievements/trophies.

example: kill a rockstar player. WTF!

or something like: be ranked as #4 in week's best players. (all over the world, when there are FPS freaks that play like they were born for a specific game?)

Gimme a break!
FantasyStar  +   1788d ago
Hey now, they wouldn't be called 'achievements/trophies' if they were easy to get right? Sticking 5 people with Plasma Grenades is cake walk. Getting the Top 10% in the entire world to earn an Valor Rank in KZ2 is not so much a cake walk.

I support IW's decision not to have MP-based achievements/trophies, but don't knock down the whole system because you're having a hard time getting an achievement/trophy like beating Uncharted 1 on Crushing.

Kinda funny you mention Uncharted on crushing, I still have my broken controller because of it. My first platinum keepsake :P
getonmylev3l  +   1788d ago
that valor acheivement was nothing. i bought the game on a thursday and had top 10 by that sunday.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1788d ago
At least they're finally adding in trophies.
The_Firestarter  +   1788d ago
Could you imagine if a achievement/trophy was to get to 10th prestige level 55? F*** that! I stopped at 1st prestige level 33-ish.

I cannot stand that, like in Warhawk: General rank??? I'm barely a Wingman and getting up in the ranks is WAY too time consuming. Screw it.
themyk  +   1788d ago
thank god
KillerPwned  +   1788d ago
Thank you IW we love you ^.^
matta  +   1788d ago
I thought multiplayer included co-op.
N2NOther  +   1787d ago
I'm sure the achievements in co-op are more related to objectives in the missions as opposed to people boosting for achievements in mp. I also expect tons of lobbies with a whole group of idiots with [BOST] as their clan tag just to rank up easier.
iWRECK  +   1788d ago
i am soo happy for no multiplayer trophies, so we wont have noobs playing the game just for trophies, they will acutally have to learn skill ;p lol
maspi  +   1788d ago
ah! Great! this is the best news of the day.I like to collet trophies but I really hate multiplayer and competitive trophies.single player trophies enhances replayability.
