Infinity Ward are going to be introducing new and revitalized elements to the Call of Duty formula that will give Modern Warfare various ways of immersing the players into the combat.

Call of Duty fans around the world have been getting their first taste of Modern Warfare gameplay and so far fans are starting to get a feel of what the devs are going for in the upcoming title.

While there’s been a lot of information coming out since Infinity Ward’s July 11 gameplay reveal, they previously invited numerous content creators to try out Modern Warfare and they’re starting to talk about their experiences with the game.

Rule the night with better vision

In his latest video, YouTuber ‘Drift0r’ gave more information about things he saw during his time with the latest version of Modern Warfare which will has surprises in store for eager fans.

Even though fans will be familiar with night vision goggles in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, it seems Infinity Ward will be bringing that back to some degree but will be better than ever.

Whether a player had night vision goggles on or not in COD4, it didn’t really make a difference. But from what Drift0r saw during his time with the game, the devs have a few things in store to really make the feature worth it.

“There are some Multiplayer maps where it was very important to use night vision goggles,” Drift0r said. ”[Night vision goggles] have their own interesting mechanics and meta-game when it comes to lighting and how you aim-down sights under the goggles.”

Interactive maps in Modern Warfare

Battle-hardened Call of Duty players know Multiplayer maps inside and out, but it looks like they’re going to have extra elements to pay attention to in Modern Warfare.

According to the YouTuber, all doors will be “open-able” but he also made mention that there will be other interactables like light switches (that could play into the night vision goggles) and garage doors.

With the devs still working on the game, this could definitely give players a reason to think twice before approaching a map how they previously did.

Modern Warfare already playable on PC

While this might be more niche to some people, PC players have long felt ignored by Call of Duty entries in the past.

Drift0r made note that the studio had PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game available to their testers, but there was also a smooth-running PC version available.

“But I got to play on PC 1440p, 144FPS with no frame drops, no weird performance issues, no weird crashes, no problems whatsoever,” Drift0r said.

This will be a godsend for the those in the Call of Duty community that prefer the PC, seeing as this entry to the franchise might be developed hand-in-hand with the console versions.

Fans of the series are going to have a lot to look forward to when Modern Warfare releases on October 25.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
