Modern Warfare 2 is reversing one of the beta's worst features

Modern Warfare 2 is reversing one of the beta's worst features

It's been confirmed that a significant change is coming to MWII's new third-person mode, and fans are thrilled.

The countdown for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II has now reached its final stretch, as the game is finally upon us next week. Ahead of its release on 28 October though, it’s now been confirmed that a significant change is being implemented following feedback from the open beta periods which took place last month. 

Third-person mode is a feature which, for the most part, went down really well - thanks to some handy new field-of-view sliders, players can adjust things to their liking and gaze at the back of their character’s head, if they so desire. However, some adjustments have now been made to improve the experience.

Take a look at Modern Warfare II’s third-person mode in action below - although keep in mind that things will look slightly different in the final release thanks to the new tweaks.

As pointed out by CharlieINTEL on Twitter, a post on the Call of Duty Instagram account has confirmed that in the game’s final release, only scopes over 4x will use first-person ADS (aim down sights). Therefore, players will be able to stay in third-person far more often, rather than having to essentially switch between the two constantly. Fans are (mostly) very pleased with this change, as demonstrated by the onslaught of Ws in the replies.

Recently, it was claimed by insiders that Modern Warfare II will be receiving campaign DLC sometime next year, alongside a map pack expansion which will apparently include the majority of maps from the original Modern Warfare. At the time of writing, this hasn’t been officially confirmed, but it’s claimed that the DLC will be releasing instead of a full new Treyarch Call of Duty title in 2023 (which has reportedly been pushed back to the following year). Take it with a pinch of salt for now, though - we’ll just have to see what happens.
