Modern Warfare 2 players are calling for the return of the beloved Black Ops 1 Combat Record after the “buggy” system causes users to reflect on the “simplicity” of previous UI’s and stat trackers.

With a new Call of Duty game coming out every year, it’s to be expected that the developers will slightly alter how players experience both combat and the UI. After all, as gaming develops, so does the quality of the Combat Record and the measure of particular stats as you play.

Many players agreed with the player’s statement, with a number of commenters exploring how the UI seems to have gotten worse. One fan took the statement further, stating that “the OG Cods really were better due to their simplicity. Everything is so buggy and transactional now” highlighting the simple yet effective nature of both viewing your Combat Record and navigating the UI.

Other fans shared the same sentiment, agreeing that “the new UI is just so bad” and going on to explain how its main problem is that the MW2 system is “so hard to navigate” with the older games having “a much better and simpler UI.”
