It's out now, folks! Why aren't you playing it?

MODERNWARFARETITLE.png

Hello and welcome to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 thread! While posting here and playing with other people remember:

a) Have fun.
b) Don’t be a dick, even if doing so accomplishes a) for you.

What does Wikipedia have to say about it?

Wikipedia description:
Modern Warfare 2 (packaged as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2) is an upcoming first-person shooter video game developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Officially announced on February 11, 2009, the game is due for worldwide release on November 10, 2009. It is the sixth installment of the Call of Duty series, and the direct sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, continuing along the same storyline.

Modern Warfare 2 will be released in conjunction with two other Call of Duty games: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized for the Nintendo DS, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, a port of Call of Duty 4 adapted by Treyarch for the Wii console. In addition, a comic book series based on one of the game's characters will also be produced, entitled Modern Warfare 2: Ghost. The developer has stated that the game's proprietary IW 4.0 game engine is an improvement over the engine used in its previous game.

I checked and surprisingly this description basically hasn’t changed, so eh.

Ground Rules

I've PM'd Echo about these, since I don't want to come off sounding like I think I have Mod-like powers, but I'll post them in this spoiler and let you guys decide whether they sound reasonable.
Due to previous controversy, I’m setting out some rules to ensure that we all have a good time here.

-No ‘LOL Treyarch’ posts: I don’t care if your cat was run over by a Treyarch employee, this is the MW2 thread, stay on topic.

-No PC vs console arguments: We’re all here to enjoy Modern Warfare 2, so play nice, and don’t perpetuate this stereotype of internet forums.

-Keep ethical debate civil: Discussing the inner workings of a game is what these threads are all about, but once again, play nice.

On Dedicated Servers, etc: This argument appears to have died down, and while any thread on even the most AAA of games is going to have people bring up (often legitamate) gripes (like Killer Croc in Batman:AA, or No Fighting in the War Room in this thread), I would like to think that the people who have been turned off from MW2 (your call and I respect your decision) have said their piece and can leave this thread to the people who are excited about this game.

-Remember your spoiler tags!


Work-around to lack of Party Chat by Sivraj:

But for anyone trying to play multiplayer with their friends, here's an alternative to party chat:

http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2009/11/09/alternative-to-party-chat-in-call-of-duty-modern-warfare-2/

From the site:
Step One: Go to Xbox.com and log in to your account
Step Two: From your profile page, click on Privacy Settings (it's just to the right of your avatar)
Step Three: The top option should say Voice and Text. Set it to Friends Only. Save.

Now whenever you play "Modern Warfare 2" multiplayer you'll only hear people you are friends with.

Basically, you set your "Voice and Text" option to Friends Only. BAM, problem solved :D. I'm not sure if you can do it from your console though. The website only explains how to do it through Xbox.com.

Awesome video time! I know I've missed some, but they can always be added later.

What about weapons, perks, etc?

Neogaf's thread is alright for some other info and pretty pictures.


I want to play with people on this forum!

(X360) Friends List for that console which overheats a lot:

We've got a CoD Clan Meta-Tag run by Burtletoy: A PA CoD Clan

If you send a friend invite to this account, either pm Burtletoy on the forums, or send a message to his real xbox gamertag, Brutletoy (Not Burtletoy, like his forum handle) If you just post something in this thread, he might see it an reminder to add you.

Special Burtletoy related update!
Burtletoy wrote: »
Either way, what it comes down to is it is my list, and I'm not going to be the one sending the invites cause I don't want to and I'm going to go home and take my ball with me!

In other words, send the invite to the clan, don't expect him to take the time to send invites to you.

There's also PA CoD4, which is an older account with a lot of names on it, I think it was being run by I King Kong I. It probably isn't being maintained anymore, FYI.

(PS3) Friends List for that console which people seem to laugh out loud about for some reason:
PA Handle - PS3 Name

Gihgehls as Hellphish
Debaserzbs as FancyLad
Jokerman as Jokermein
Fourier_series as Fourier_series
Algertman as AlbertBOMB
Ah_Pook as Ah_Pook
Jean Claude Van Calm as Grimmsy- (yes, that's a dash there)
KidDynamite as NinjaForHire
Articus as Art__ (that's 2 underscores)
Shaggy as Mr_P1tt
(PC) Friends List for that console which actually isn’t a console and uses some sort of program called ‘Storm’, or whatever.
PA Handle - Steam Name

Gihgehls as hellphish
Fleck0 as Fleck0
SirToasty as patoast
Dourin as Dourin
ReverendCaliber as ReverendCaliber

We also have a Steam group! It's public, so no need for invites. PM Fleck0 if you have any other questions.

    I stayed awake over 24 hours but then still went to midnight launch, just beat the campaign a few hours ago. So worth it. Easily GOTY.

    Just now played multiplayer for a few hours with a friend, taking a break now. Feel free to add me on Live, my gamertag is in my signature.

    I feel like levelling is really sped up compared to MW1. I'm almost level 10 now, and that's after almost beating the campaign. I remember that level 10 took me a couple days, before.

    I was going to buy this game on PC until I checked the metacritic score and saw how it was universally panned.
    I never had any intention of buying it, but I was entertained by the smear campaign going on. People sure do love their dedicated servers.

    I'm trying to figure out the best way to build a "Stabby" class.

    Marathon seems to be mandatory, as does Cold Blooded.

    But for the third perk, should I go Scrambler or Commando? Commando's the obvious choice, but then, I know that I turn into a gibbering idiot whenever someone scrambles MY radar. It's worked pretty well so far.

    But Scrambler does alert people to your presence. I think it probably works better on clusterfuck stairway maps like Favela.


    Well, the entire idea of a run-around-stabbing-people class really only works on maps like that anyway, huh.

    I just remembered that one of the loading screen "intel" bits was about the Tactical Knife option, which I guess lets you stab faster when you're holding a pistol with that "attachment" equipped? (omg Snake Eater CQC anybody)

    Has anybody used this? I wonder how many pistol kills I'd need to unlock it.

    It comes with one of the premade classes; it is faster, it allows you to return to your secondary weapon more quickly. Dunno kill count.

    And while we're at it, I saw an extremely goofy-but-effective way to play earlier tonight--one of the guys in my game lobby exclusively used the riot shield with a throwing knife. He ended almost every round with a positive K:D ratio!

    The solution is semtex, it turns out. It sticks to that riot shield quite nicely.

    I never really cared about dedicated servers per se. I did fear the change they represented, but everything seems to be running smoothly on the first day. Which is really more than I can say for most games that come with interesting and new . . . "doohickies".

    That being said, this game was freaking intense! Bought it at noon, beat it an hour ago, kicked ass every step of the way.
    Jesus Christ no one can kill Soap and Price. Those two are getting to be more hardcore than Solid Snake.

    If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten in your presence.

    It's feasible, just really annoying and difficult. My friends seemed to have less difficulty with it than me though.
