The much anticipated gameplay reveal of the new Modern Warfare game left many with mixed emotions, after seeing the brand new look of the upcoming addition to the Call of Duty franchise.
There was a lot to dissect in the “Gunfight” mode which was displayed by popular Call of Duty content creators who got their hands on the game first, although Dr Disrespect and KiLLa noticed one thing in particular which got their hopes up for its release.
Some of the critics of the first gameplay reveal highlighted how different Modern Warfare looked in contrast to some of the previous Call of Duty titles, even comparing the game to Rainbow 6 Siege with the new leaning feature.
However, former world champion KiLLa, who has always been vocal on the state of competitive CoD, felt that this change in direction was needed for the franchise.
He expressed that the removal of slide 'canceling', which is a prevalent mechanic in Black Ops 4 used for the upper hand in gunfights, would lead to a much more tactical game, “Game looks amazing imo,” he said “anyone saying otherwise is a slide canceling moron.”

Dr Disrespect, who has had hands-on experience with the game already, agreed.
The Doc expects it to be a good year for Call of Duty, agreeing with KiLLa by explaining that Modern Warfare’s gameplay requires more "pacing and tactics" than the likes of Black Ops 4, “You’re gonna love it KiLLa,” he replied, “Actual talented pacing and tactics.”

Although KiLLa and Dr Disrespect seem positive about the new changes coming to Modern Warfare, other Call of Duty stars, such as ACHES, have their reservations about the changes to movement mechanics.
The full multiplayer reveal for Modern Warfare is set for August 1, where fans will get a chance to see exactly what is in store for the game's release on October 25.
