Game News Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2: the disappearance of a historical feature has fans screaming
We are there, after months of teasing and an in-depth presentation a few days ago, the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 betas are starting to be accessible according to the previously announced schedule. And obviously, the first reviews appear.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare and remake of 2009’s Modern Warfare 2, won’t arrive until October 28. But as usual, a beta is offered to players following a specific schedule.
The first beta phases and the first feedback
First, there’s the exclusive beta, which started Monday and ends tonight for PlayStati playerson, and which follows a PlayStation closed beta reserved for players who have pre-ordered the game. From September 22 to 23 the beta will be extended on Xbox and PC for those who pre-ordered. Then, from September 24 to 26as part of a final session, everybody can access it. In other words, there are already a lot of players who have been able to get their hands on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and who are starting to come back.
First, players noticed the disappearance of the slide cancel as we knew it, replaced by a technique discovered by the players. Concretely, it is to cancel a slide through precise handling lets jump at the right time and be much harder to hit. Popular and very practical, the slide cancel will have to be reinvented so that players find similar sensations.
But where are the red dots?
But the disappearance that makes the regulars scream is linked to the mini-map. If you’ve ever played an FPS, you’ve probably looked at the minimap a lot, hoping that shots will locate an enemy you can’t see directly. Many Call of Duty players were like this accustomed to taking a look to optimize their movements and their shots, anticipating trouble. In Modern Warfare 2 it seems that the red dots indicating the position of an enemy have disappeared, unless a drone is used. Apparently, it’s a big change in the habits of players, who did not fail to let it be known on social networks, even if the information had been revealed several days ago.
