Here's some news that ought to delight the serious Call of Duty geeks. Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling revealed a couple of facts about some of the weapon attachments in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in an interview with OXM, which should offer new tactical opportunities on the virtual battlefield.
"You can now fold down your magnifying scope and already have a close-range optic on your gun - so now you're engaging guys close-target without having to change weapons," he said. Players ought to appreciate being able to now fold a long-range and close-range class into one custom slot. Bowling said the addition was made after the development team spoke with actual Delta Force operatives.
MW3 will also feature a new kind of high-tech grenade launcher, the XM25 air burst grenade launcher, aka the "Punisher." Bowling offers an example of how it is used: "If a guy is behind a concrete barrier, you can laser-tag that cover point, fire over it and it will then program the round to explode one meter past it." My question is, if actual skill is required to use this thing, is it really fair to call it a noobtube?
