Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling has confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 players will be able to dual wield sidearms in the game, which is a first for the series.

During a GameCrazy showing of the single-player mode, Bowling showed off the ability – called Akimbo – using two Desert Eagle pistols.

“Now to calm some initial fears of “OMG! Overpowered!” Akimbo is limited and balanced, just like everything in the game,” he said. “It’s limited to sidearms, harder to aim than standard and you can’t go ADS (aim down sights) since you have a weapon in each hand, among other balancing techniques.

“So don’t freak out before you see it in action.”
