. 27 days ago

Whether it be slide-canceling, tactical sprinting, or even opening doors and windows — movement in Call of Duty can be a very contentious topic. Modern Warfare 2 is adding a few exciting movement changes and a few revolutionary vehicle additions into Warzone. 

Call of Duty Modern Warfare (2019) introduced groundbreaking movement adjustments such as tactical sprinting and slide canceling.

Both additions were met with criticism from the community and it seems as though Modern Warfare 2 is adding a few movement additions of its own.

MW2 will also introduce massive vehicle changes into Warzone that are sure to excite longtime veterans.
