Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Trailer Shows New Ways To Fight

By  | 

Activision and Infinity Ward revealed tons of details and gameplay surrounding the Call of Duty franchise during the Call of Duty Next event on September 15, including the complete reveal trailer for Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer and Warzone 2.0.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer and Warzone 2.0 reveal trailer featured the typical over-the-top action expected from Call of Duty, with the gameplay accompanied by the gritty tone of The Smashing Pumpkins’ “Bullet With Butterfly Wings.”

The cinematic trailer revealed some of Modern Warfare 2’s new movement and mechanics that were earlier talked about during Modern Warfare 2’s initial reveal on June 8. The footage included Uncharted-style mantling and ledge-hanging for more tactical approaches to combat and parachuting, including the capability for operators to fire their pistols while hanging from a ledge.

The cinematics also highlighted new and familiar equipment found in both multiplayer and Warzone 2.0, which includes the return of the heartbeat sensor and proximity mines. Modern Warfare 2’s new Drill Charge equipment is also shown in use. Helicopters and ATVs were present in the fight as well, and Modern Warfare’s Javelin missile launcher returns to take down aerial streaks and vehicles. Additionally, the trailer featured water combat, the return of Black Ops 1’s dolphin dive movement, and more.

Activision presented Modern Warfare 2’s new Gunsmith 2.0 ahead of Call of Duty Next, and the updated feature totally changes how attachments are unlocked. Here’s how to book a spot for the upcoming Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer beta, which will release on September 16 with a weekend of PlayStation exclusivity.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will release on October 28 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
