MW3 Dev Considers Non-Lethal Deathstreaks For Next CoD

MP1st - Recently, the Call of Duty community has been rather vocal about their view of the inclusion of Deathstreaks in the Modern Warfare series, originally introduced in Modern Warfare 2. Creative Strategist, Robert Bowling, has been taking this into consideration. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

how about
using a new engine for ones

Why do they need a new engine, when it's not broken, and is one of the best of any FPS this generation?

So tired of kids rehashing the "cool" thing to say about COD needing a new engine.

Next generation is coming.. the game will evolve as it did when COD 4 came out. You can't keep changing the engine Year after Year. You think DICE and BF is going to change their engine now that they have the game where they want it? They're going to use what's working for BF games to come.

Unless you really think they're going to change the engine for the next BF.. and the next BF after that and so on.

A new engine is needed because it looks aweful, they can't do anything with physics, the particles are extremely outdated and oh yea it's over 10 years old! Why bring up bf3? Frostbite 1 lasted 5 years and then they made 2. Why infinity fail decided to keep using an archaeic engine is beyond me.

the graphics are fine. it looks just as good as the majority of other games in it genre. lets wait until next gen for a new cod engine otherwise its just wasting resources.

You died 5 times. Now you're practically invincible for 10 seconds because you suck so bad at this game.

how about they get rid of the ability to throw a knife 3/4 of the way around the freaking planet that results in death when the blade touches your pinky toe?

your comment had me thinking about this photo lol

Replace death streaks with extra perks. E.G you die 4 times in a row then you get steady aim pro and scavenger pro for 30 seconds.

Tone down the killstreaks, get rid of death streaks altogether, and scrap stupid dual wielding & noob tubes.

Taking Grenade Launchers out isn't very "realistic". They exist quite frequently in combat and are extremely useful. Deal with them. MW3 also did a very good job of nerfing them done. Unless you get a near direct hit, it takes to shells to kill (unlike MW2 with tubes paired w/danger close perk).

Dual weilding guns/Akimbo on the other hand is straight up "mentally handicapped" to be politically correct about it. There isn't a human on Earth that can accurately shoot 1 FMG/G18/Skorpion etc while sprinting NEVERMIND TWO!!! Akimbo weapons outside of normal handguns is just rediculous.

But all in all, COD is great and we may regret changing it. The grass is always greener as they say. Keep what works. Its a great online MP with 60FPS slickness and great controls. A game that can be as hardcore or casual as you want it to be. Changing it to cater to one or the other may ruin everything.
Gamer-Z  +   1440d ago
Yes but COD isn't very realistic to begin with so i don't see the problem in scraping the noob tubes especially if its been nerfed to the extent of you having to be precise with it that right there is already unrealistic of a grenade launcher lol.

Replace killstreaks with skillstreaks, make the color palette more vibrant so the gray characters dont blend in with the gray backdrops, and give me dedicated servers.

I find the comments in here pretty funny.

Don't get me wrong, they're all great suggestions--I mean that. But perhaps you're all playing the wrong game? Because the things you're all suggesting are drastic changes from where the series has headed.

You guys need to stop kidding yourselves: COD is for noobs. It's why it's so popular--because it's accessible. Anyone can pick it up and at least kill someone. Yes, I'll concede that you can be really good at it and stomp noobs, but any game is like that. COD is just better at evening out the playing field.

Why else do you think they ever came up with the idea of death streaks in the first place? lol that screams "Help the poor noobs."

"Tone down kill streaks", "change the death streaks", "nerf the throwing knife", etc. Those would all make COD more appealing to core players, thus less to noobs, thus less popular. So I suggest you play a different game, rather than cling to the hope that COD will do a 180 and suddenly decide to cater to the core audience again rather than continue on the path it's been headed for several iterations now; towards elevating the noob. Activision like money, they're not going to give up on the casual shooter crowd they've captured by making their games accessible.

the thing is killstreaks, perks etc is what made COD what it is today. otherwise it would just be a normal shooter. getting a reward for going 5-0 or 10-0 is really good to have it keeps playing because of its rewards.

now with that being said. Balanceing is needed on a lot of things for one weapons, death streaks, and maybe some killstreaks. type 95 is just one of the guns i see everyone using for the fact that its pretty one shot one kill every single time, snipers get rid quickscoping (it easy they have to be fully in scope to shoot the sniper rifle).on that note snipers should be one shot one kill anyway. you trying shooting a 50 cal bullet at someone and see if there still alive. but the main thing is

BALANCE, BALANCE, BALANCE if everything get balanced like it should then be a really fun game to play. when you see the entire team playing with the same gun almost in every match you go into. there a reason it called unbalanced gun.
