Here's What Will Change In 'Modern Warfare 2' Based On The Beta

Activision has heard your feedback and have outlined the changes that are being made to Modern Warfare II.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II certainly has cause for celebration. This weekend, the beta period drew to a close but it was in fact the biggest beta in Call of Duty history. According to Activision, the beta had more players, hours played, and matches played than any other beta in the series. Already, Activision has implemented a number of changes to the game, including adjustments to target tracking and footstep audio. Now, they’ve outlined what else will change as a result of the beta.

Check out some Modern Warfare II gameplay below.

First of all, the footstep saga isn’t quite over. Ahead of the second beta weekend, Activision quietened footsteps but they’ve said that further changes are to come. In a blog post, the developers wrote: “while sentiment around footstep audio was more positive in Beta Weekend Two, we have seen your continued feedback on the volume of footsteps and will continue to balance enemy/friendly footstep audio ahead of launch.”

Likewise, target tracking will also receive tweaks. Previously, the developers reduced muzzle smoke opacity and increased the visibility of the muzzle flash. Fans seemingly found this to be an improvement, but they added that they’ll “look to tweak increased enemy visibility to allow for better visual tracking of opponents that is not solely the traditional nameplate.”

The team confirmed that they’re looking into potential solutions surrounding disbanding lobbies, and will continue to refine the third person playlist. They did note though that third-person, weapons, plus the Grand War and Invasion modes got “a lot of love” from players.

Battle Map related bugs are currently being addressed, plus AI navigation is being improved for Invasion. And last but not least, the developers noted that they’re still working through feedback but will continue to update fans.
