MW3 video details weapon progression and proficiencies

Thursday, 27 October 2011 18:19 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Activision has released a video for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which focuses on the game’s weapon proficiencies. The progression allows the player to customize the gameplay experience with weapon leveling unlocks, and using proficiencies which provide weapons with new attributes. Each weapon will contain an experience bar, so the better you get, the better your weapons gets as well. It’s all very interesting, and you can watch it below the break. Modern Warfare 3 is out on November 8.

    That’s really the most inspiring video I’ve seen from MW3 so far. It actually looks like they kept the sharp and precise weapons, instead of going the Blops way of exagerating the handling.

    Maybe we’ll have a great competitive shooter after all?

    That being said, it certainly seems like MW3 and BF3 are so scared of eachother they’re actually grabbing eachothers features. Although I guess individual weapon proficiencies means you get more stuff to unlock over time.

    @6 I think it was “leaked”, wasn’t it? “Leaked” ;)

    Really the most inspiring video from MW3 so far? Really DSB, really? As inspiring as Martin Luther Kings, JFK, Ghandi or even Respawn Entertainment and their fight against Bobby Kotick and his evil minions at “infinity ward”….
    so DSB think again about about what is and isnt inspirational because this isnt, no sir. Dont fall for this re skinned trickery. because its the same exactly the same.

    @8 Well I can’t exactly account for the kind of fanboy hysteria you’re putting forward there, but inspiring in the sense that Infinity Ward, in spite the many changes they seem to be implementing, might actually still go the road of the hardcore competitive shooter.

    If that’s not your thing, that’s your problem. A lot of people, including myself, wouldn’t mind them staying the course. I don’t need a game where I have to hold hands with everybody else. I just want to compete against people who want to do the same in some neatly designed gameplay.

    It’s pretty simple. And putting JFK up with actual leaders like Ghandi or Martin Luther King is heresy pure and simple. As for Respawn, I wish them the best, but I have no idea what’s gone on, and neither does anybody else. Not that it stops people from blabbering incoherently about it, of course :)

    That is a horrible idea. When i played Black Ops i sticked to FAMAS in 90% and used AK for 5%-10% at best.

    So i thought it would be nice to create something that can change my mind trying other guns and stick with them for a few matches like in Counter-Strike.
    and in the end try new guns for certain situations.

    But no.

    They completely made it worse this time, again. Stick with one weapon, jerk off with it for the entire prestiege level and boost it as much as possible. sure, for fratboys it’s cool to stick to one weapon, master it completely, run the fuck out in entire match and do stuff.

    How can you go worse than before. I thought MW2 was the last thing, than came more or less balanced but uninspired Treyarch game and now this. With horrible 2005-2006 visuals, with old Quake 3:Arena formula with some strange features.

    Since MW2, everytime comes new game and they are trying to pack new features in which in the end they are always crap or it is cut in the end.

    In my opinion they just don’t know what they are doing and they don’t know what to do next, but they are always trying to find something new in that old formula. They are even trying to push “teamwork” in MW3, but you can try it harder as you can… You won’t succeed just with basic stuff.

    #12 4 years ago
  13. DSB

    @12 So you might only put in 450 hours this time around? Still not bad for 60 bucks!

    Personally I loved MW2, but I’m not even over 200 hours played. I also don’t know any fratboy that would ever play it for 500 hours. Being part of a frat means you have to participate in a lot more than just CoD matches.

    So I guess what I’m saying is… If you love the game more than me and the average fratboy, what does that make you? :P

    #13 4 years ago
  14. Erthazus

    @13, 500 hours is nothing. I can show you a guy who played Modern Warfare 2 for 2000 hours and he is a normal person, also he is my friend and i play with him COD all the time. also, we go together to the university and sometimes even play together on his freakin cool laptop.

    500 hours for me is a standard time for multiplayer big blockbuster shooters.
    I spent 34+ hours on MW2 and 500+ on black Ops with friends this summer.

    I spent over 1000 hours on BC2 or BF2.

    But time for me is not a quality of a game. (also i will spent maybe 300-400 for SKYRIM and i know that in the end i will regret it a lot).

    #14 4 years ago
  15. DSB

    Nuff said! :D

    For the record 500 hours is the equivalent of 20 days of your life, and 1000 is more than a month.

    “I can show you a guy who played Modern Warfare 2 for 2000 hours and he is a normal person”

    Define “normal”.

    Weight, general health, social life, relationships, job prospects, employment, etc.?

    500 hours “over the summer” is nearly 5 hours a day, and that’s if you do it practically every single day. Sitting in front of a games machine for 5 hours every day playing one single game is not “normal” by any stretch of the term.

  17. G1GAHURTZ

    Erthazus, you have some serious issues.

    #17 4 years ago
  18. GenericShooterSoldier

    @12 I completely agree with you.

    Some of you just seem too eager to settle for the bare minimum which is what the Cod franchise seems to be offering year after year.

    I respect you opinions that this one is making major changes and ah look its hardcore and blahdy blah but the fact is this is the same thing we all say year after year as we are hyped for Cod but in the long term we’re disappointed and for the next years game all these features will be scrapped and we will be back to square one as they introduce “new” features but really these are just the same features with new names and small tweaks.

    The Cod franchise survives this way by the skin of its teeth. Rather than expanding it simply tweaks little things here and there which in the long term are minor gameplay additions.

    Its time it stops being annual and sorts itself out one and for all.

    @Michael,
    “Weight, general health, social life, relationships, job prospects, employment, etc.?”

    He is normal. He is going to university right now with me. But he spent on MW2 so much like till January since it’s release. I could never play 2000 hours in one game even for the money.

    I have a good girl and she is also my friend. She spent over 700 hours in Team fortress 2 (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/256/newbitmapimagefk.jpg/). I spent there only… 18 maybe?

    she is working right now and she spents a lot of time playing but she is really cool and she works a lot.
    you can clearly see that she spent 75 hour playing this week.

    Michael, it’s really hard to believe, but there are a lot of people that play a lot and they are normal. Honestly.

    Her friend i know played 2600+ hours of “Alien Swarm”. I played only 63 hours at best. It’s really cool, but how can you play so much when there are no even DLC’s. He mastered it long time ago and i can’t understand it, but there are normal people. You just need to see them and you will be surprised.

    @G1GAHURTZ, sorry. Nope. It’s you who need to get a life trolling each MW BF article about Call OF Duty superiority. I have no problems with that.

  22. SplatteredHouse

    The developer in the video spends a good deal of time going on about how this, that and the other superficial stuff is NEW…But, this only goes to show in the end how much the rest of it, the bulk of it, really isn’t. They’re not making new games, just bolting bits on last year’s edition.

    @20 75 hours is more than one third of a week. The average person also spends at least a quarter to a third of the day sleeping.

    If you’re a fully grown adult, it would be completely impossible to spend that amount of time in a video game on a weekly basis and still maintain good health, good relationships with family and friends, and also hold down a job.

    COMPLETELY impossible.

    If she’s a kid (under 18)? Her parents should be getting her ass the fuck off the computer.

    @21 Just ignore GIGA. He’s the Erthasuz of Call of Duty. He doesn’t actually have any interest in proper discourse and discussion if you’re not willing to suck Call of Duty’s cock, no matter how eloquent and well thought out your words might be.

    #28 4 years ago
  29. Erthazus

    @28, “If she’s a kid (under 18)?”

    she is 23. :D and as i said she is working with her father. She have good friends, previously had a boyfriend. This year she finished university.

    “If you’re are fully grown adult, it would be completely impossible to spend that amount of time in a video game on a weekly basis and still maintain good health, good relationships with family and friend, and also hold down a job.”

    It’s possible. Believe me. You just need to be not addicted to games to miss everything else what you really need in your life. I like playing but i never play if i need to do something in my life. Currently my goal right now is to study and i study a lot. first that than playing games.

    “He’s the Erthasuz of Call of Duty. ”

    Hey, Michael, it’s a bit of an insult… Can you please not do this anymore? =\ I think we started to respect each others opinion so i thought it would be great if we can stop insulting each other.

    Why the Fuck would they make the game easier, that’s tarded, they’re just trying to grow the fan base for the casual gamers, what happened to games with skill?

    I don’t care what people say but MW2 did require some skill, the perks in that game made it more interesting and fun, as unbalanced as MW2 was it was more fun than BLOPS (i only played 40hours compared to 550 on MW2)

    Counter Strike – theres a game with skill.

    @29 75 hours of gaming a week is addicted.

    That’s over 10 fucking hours a *day*.

    6 to 8 hours of sleep on top of that, it leaves you with maybe 8 hours tops left in the day, which is also the average length of time a fully employed person spends working in a single day. Like I said, it’s completely impossible, however you do the maths.

    I don’t understand why a developer can’t just keep the interface, gameplay and workings exactly the same as they were before but refine and improve the appearance and exactness of it all.

    After all, it’s popular for a damned reason. You change it and you actually change what people liked about it.

    Improvement can be good but sometimes it can also be bad. EA and Activision need to join up for Call of Battlefield 4 and just fuck it all.

    @46, It seemed best. If I started posting common sense in this thread it might implode.

    Still, I honestly feel that developers suffer from he same issues that plague movie producers. Rather than make what was good in the first great in the second, they feel like they have to top what they did by completely reinventing it or worse, go a whole new route.

    Sometimes, we just want a prettier, tighter, more bug free version of what we fell in love with the first time.

    I got this image in my head of Erthazus just digging a hole that gets deeper and deeper and deeper for some reason.

    @18 That’s entirely your own standard. People have been playing the original Counter-Strike for years because it’s a design that works. A hardcore shooter, offering simple map designs, with precise weapons that award actual skill over random chance.

    The same thing could quite arguably be said for CoD, which is so far the only other shooter to consistently pull those numbers over nearly a decade. I don’t see the coincidence in that.

    We don’t want them to reinvent it, because the design works. More maps, more guns, more tweaks however, are perfectly welcome.

    The fact that you’re disappointed with that, or don’t perhaps understand the appeal, doesn’t really say anything, except for the fact that you have a different preference. We don’t spend 60 dollars on games we hate, no matter how desperately some people in this very comment section might want to make that “their story”. And a likely one it is!

    Sometimes, we just want a prettier, tighter, more bug free version…

    This, too.

    @50, funny you say that. I recently bought BF3 and though I enjoy it, there are things about it that make me want to punch babies.

    Compared to what they did to Battlefield, MW3 has hardly been touched. They took most of what made Battlefield, Battlefield and took a big steaming dump on it.

    Again, I go back to the film producer metaphor. They get something like Superman and they start changing so many things about it that it isn’t really Superman anymore and they might as well have just made something new from scratch without ruining the Superman name.

    That’s what Dice and EA have done with BF3. They wanted a competitor to Modern Warfare and they put the name Battlefield on it to cash in on the trademark, but it isn’t a successor to BF2 at all. MW3 is at least mostly still intact.

    @GIGA…. Dude you just broke my heart a little :(

    No RPD, but they keep L86 LSW? QQ

    Still the Type 95 assualt rifle looks pretty lethal, as does the MK46 Light Machine Gun…

    @ 50

    dont get me wrong i used to be a huge Cod fan but Black Ops killed it for me.

    I have no problem with a game being generally the same like Counter Strike because thats its style but i do have a problem when something like Cod decides to release itself year in year out making no true progressions but rather slapping on a new lick of paint.

    Games are expensive nowadays and ones as mainstream as Cod dont go down in price for a long time. Yet still they stick to this idea of tweaking rather than expanding when u can see they are looking to expand and this is what annoys me and in my opinion is plain wrong.

    Cod is no longer a game, its a business model.

    @54, There’s nothing wrong with a new coat of paint as long as what was already there is solid as hell. Like Scotty said, “The more you overtake the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain”.

    #56 4 years ago
  57. OrbitMonkey

    You know i’m not a fan of sports games… But people buy them year in year out. Same game with a couple of tweaks, maybe a lick of paint and thats all CoD/BF is.

    Their a Military Sport Sim, where the objective is to shoot people… Lots of people. Why the big rumpus when it fails to reinvent the wheel?

    I LIKE it the way it is thanks. You don’t? Move on. But don’t act all betrayed just cuz YOUR tastes have changed.

    #57 4 years ago
  58. GenericShooterSoldier

    DarkElfa yeah the framework for the multiplayer is solid but it lacks substance now and has become repetitive and too similar to what we have played before.

    I just dont see the value in buying the pretty much same game each year. I just feel it should take the battlefield route and release a new edition when its actually made improvements to the plumbing rather than having to come back each year and work on it. This way the end product will be better hands down.

    #58 4 years ago
  59. DSB

    I don’t see any reason not to have your cake and eat it too. There’s plenty of room for another franchise. I felt pretty numbed by BC2, it was a decent sideshow, but ultimately it didn’t have it where it counts.

    Based on what I’ve tried in the BF3 beta, and especially the things that DICE have “borrowed” from CoD, I’d say they’re bringing the best game they’ve done in years, and I would have preordered it if EA hadn’t taken it off Steam. I’ll still buy it if they put it out.

    @54 Well I never said I liked the yearly iteration business. Buying Black Ops has pretty much convinced me that Treyarch is useless, and I don’t think even a cold war setting will be enough to sucker me in next year.

    Still, both studios get two years to put out their next iteration, and so far I haven’t been disappointed with the Infinity Ward games. This time they’re missing Zampella and West, and generally making some changes that I’m pretty skeptical about, but I’m still not panicking just yet. And that video made me feel a lot more optimistic about it.

    Maybe Activision should just bite the bullet and develop a Modern Warfare MMO that they can add maps onto and continually add more weapons and upgrade the graphics.

    @DarkElfa, I want to disagree, as i hate MMO’s… But maybe the CoD Elite is Acti’s way of testing the water. To see just how many players will sign up to a subscription CoD…

    Well, at one point he claimed he has a driver’s license from what I recall. People in their 20s who have girlfriends and life don’t entertain themselves with comment sections and /or Blops 24/7. Simple as that. . Come to think of it, people don’t spend that much time on PC unless they work on it.

    Ask yourself, keeping in mind how much time he spent in these comment sections that summer, would it be even possible? And that is if and only if he didn’t play anything else. Looking at their Kotaku, Gametrailers and Youtube accounts, as well as a russian board one, and their earlier posts which were downright nuts it’s even more telling.. A person who has a life doesn’t spend time in comment sections arguing about it with strangers, or seek for strangers to talk to.

    It’s a trap.

    #64 4 years ago
  65. Giskard

    To be fair, you are all just arguing personal taste.

    For me, I’m sick and tired of the same graphics year in year out, and having to pay 80 dollars for it (Hello Sweden!).

    I’d rather go with BF3, which I have done, which has superior graphics and enjoyable, balanced, multiplayer.
