Call of Duty experiences to date with the help of a “reimagining” to the franchise that will introduce a new dynamic to Modern Warfare.

The developers for the title showed up at E3 on June 9 to break down what players should expect in their upcoming game including a more intimate battleground, a different perspective to combat and more.

Though fans have grown accustomed to hearing the ground-breaking efforts year after year about the new Call of Duty titles, the developers pushed an entirely new focus in their livestream interview that might give Modern Warfare a different feel.

Infinity WardModern Warfare’s feel will change based on what faction you’re playing.

“No greatest hits, we want to do something that feels new.”

The game is going to feature a two-sided approach to its storytelling that will focus on completely different factions: Tier-1 Special Operation forces and the Rebel Freedom Fighters fighters.

The two will not only have different arsenals that are more in line with what their real-life counterparts would be equipped with, it will also change the perspective of the combat by painting war in two whole unique brushes.

“For the first time, you’ll be playing as Tier One Special Operation forces but also as rebel freedom fighters,” Design Director Jacob Minkoff said. “When you’re playing as Tier One you got all the best tech toys. You got night-vision goggles, and the best guns and you can call in airstrikes. But when you’re playing as freedom fighters, you’re the underdog… You have to use ambush tactics, guerrilla tactics. It creates a completely different type of dynamic in combat.”

With that said, the developers also hinted that the Call of Duty experience will focus on a more “consistent universe for the entirety of the game.” Meaning the “rules are all the same” across every mode.

ActivisionModern Warfare will take players through various combat scenarios.

What modes will be in Modern Warfare?

Keeping that theme in mind, the Infinity Ward developers revealed what modes their fans should expect to release with the game.

As tradition, there will be Single-Player and Multiplayer, but fans will be thrilled to hear that Spec Ops is coming back to the game.

“In the previous Modern Warfare games, there was a mode called Spec Ops, and we’re going to have Spec Ops in the new Modern Warfare as well,” Studio Narrative Director Taylor Kurosak said. “But it’s Spec Ops like you’ve never seen before; Spec Ops to the 11th power. Crank the knob off, break it, and then throw it away.”

Infinity WardInfinity Ward is aiming to make an impactful game.

It was also revealed that there will not be a Zombies mode in the upcoming title, which goes in line to the “realistic” feel that the company is trying to go for across the entire game’s offerings.

Modern Warfare is rapidly building up to be the most hyped Call of Duty titles in a long time, and it will be a long wait until it’s October 25 release date.

Best Fennec loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The Fennec has now been out for a few months, but you’ll still need to equip the right attachments if you truly wish to master this lightening fast SMG. Here, we break down two of the strongest Fennec loadouts you can use.

The Vector, now known as the Fennec, has been a popular SMG ever since it first graced our screens back in Modern Warfare 2. Packed with a buttery smooth recoil pattern, excellent hip-fire, lightweight, and insanely fast rate of fire –  the Fennec is an absolute beast of a gun. In fact, this deadly machine gun is so lethal that it can tear through multiple enemies in just a blink of an eye. 

This zippy SMG hasn’t taken the crown away from the MP5, but the Fennec is still a popular choice. For many, this weapon is still a go-to, particularly in close-quarters where hyper-aggressive play is rewarded. In order to help you get the most out of the Fennec, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to dominate the competition in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. 

Best Fennec loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost the Fennec’s damage range with this deadly loadout.
  • ZLR18” Deadfall 
  • Merc Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

While Warzone’s large scale map may favor long to medium range engagements, you’ll still want to equip a weapon that can give you the edge in those close-quarter firefights. This loadout increases the Fennec’s hip fire, while also giving it a little extra range for when you need that added distance. 

First up is the ZLR18” Deadfall. This attachment not only drastically increases your effective damage range, it also ups your recoil control and bullet velocity, helping with the precision it needs when going for those all-important body shots and headshots. While this attachment increases your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you consider how woeful the Fennec’s mid-range damage is. 

The next two attachments are the Merc Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape, along with the Sleight of Hand perk. Not only will these additions keep the Fennec stable while aiming and hip firing, they will also increase the ADS & sprint to fire speed, improving your reload speed and giving you even greater control when you need to react quickly.

Taking down fully armored players in Warzone can often prove frustrating, but the 40 Round Drum Mags will give you more than enough bullets to shred through many an armored enemy. This attachment is a must for those that want to secure those game-winning squad wipes.

Best Fennec loadout for Modern Warfare multiplayer

Infinity Ward/DexertoThis loadout absolutely obliterates players in close-quarter firefights.
  • ZLR 18″ Deadfall
  • Tac Laser
  • No Stock
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

This build is all about melting your opponents in close-quarters combat. The Tac Laser drastically lowers the Fennec’s ADS speed and increases overall stability, while also allowing you to maintain a steady walk while aiming. 

Being able to quickly take care of enemy threats without needing to ADS is a godsend, particularly on smaller maps like Shipment and Rust, where you’ll constantly find yourself running into enemy players. 

Lastly, the Merc Foregrip will also increase your recoil control and hip-fire accuracy, allowing you to quickly fire off the Fennec’s blisteringly fast rounds with deadly precision. Foregoing the stock for this build will give you a slight boost in movement speed for quicker reaction to get away from players, while The ZLR 18” Deadfall and 40 Round Drum Mags should always be a top priority for any Fennec players looking to increase their kill potential, so always try to build your loadout around these core attachments.
