    MW2 Features, Multiplayer Insight

    • MW2 Multiplayer Insight

      This is a 'we know for sure' list that we will fill in as soon as items are discovered.

      Main Menu:
      Welcome to Modern Warfare 2!; (Tag)(GameName)(Rank):
      1) Find Match
      2) Create A Class
      3) Select Your...
      • Title
      • Emblem
      • Clan Tag
      • KillStreak Rewards: 3 Kills, 4 Kills, 5 Kills... or more

      4) Choose your Life (?)
      5) Game Summary
      6) Back

      Create A Class (setup):
      • Primary, Includes: M4A1 Assault Rifle, ...
      • Secondary, Includes: AT4 Missile Launcher, ...
      • Equipment, Includes: Frag (grenade), Semtex (explosives), Throwing Knife, Tactical Insertion (choose where you respawn-planted flare is good for 1 respwn or until destroyed ), Blast Shield (part of helmet over face).
      • Special Grenade
      • Perk 1, Includes: Sleight of Hand (Faster Reloading), ....
      • Perk 2, Includes: Stopping Power (Increased Bullet Damage), ...
      • Perk 3, Includes: Commando (Increased Melee Distance), Riot Shield (hold in hand to cover body)
      • Death Streak, Includes: Copycat (take persons perk set), Health(?) (Increased Health Life), ...
      • ReName
      • Reset Class

      For more in depth info, scroll down... perks, etc.

      Customized Killstreaks:
      That's right, you can select the type of reward to use when you achieve a killstreak. And, you have the option of skipping lower killstreaks in order to save the kills to build up towards a higher killstreak reward. This is a bit different than the UAV, AirStrike or Chopper you get with COD4 or dogs with WaW. You will have 3 sets of kill streak options out of 9 options. You can change them at any time to a different option.

      • Unlock and Personalize/Customize your Killstreak Loadout
        • 3 Killstreak = UAV, shows enemies on minimap (radar) for your entire team.

        • 4 Killstreak = Care Package, delivered via Parachute, Airdroop a random killstreak or ammo. You get an Airdrop marker, throw it down and smoke goes up, helicopter drops a crate,
        • 4 Killstreak = Counter-UAV, Temporarily disables enemy radar.

        • 5 Killstreak = Sentry Gun, Airdrop a placeable Sentry Gun; set it up and it'll shoot the enemy;
        • 5 Killstreak = Predator Missile, Remote Control via your laptop,
        • 6 Killstreak = Precision Airstrike, call in a directional airstrike.

        • 7 Killstreak = Attack Helicopter, Call in a support helicopter.
        • 9 Killstreak = Pave Low, Heavily armored assualt helicopter.

        • 11 Killstreak = AC130, Be the gunner of an AC130.

      For those who are dieing over and over, there's releif. Now if you die 3, 4, etc. times in a row, you will get some options to help you out of a jamb. It sounds like they may be a replacement for martydom and last stand for those who use those perks who didn't need them, i.e. noob help. These are like perks in that you choose them in case you find yourself in a deathstreak.
      1) Pain Killer: die 4xs in a row... get pain killer (health) to allow him to move away from spawn. Limited time for pain killers effectiveness.
      2) Copy Cat: allows you to steal the perk set of the last person who killed you after dieing 4 times in a row. You keep it until you die at which time it returns to the original person (who knows what the killer is using as his perks until then).

      1) Copycat, Get shooters class in Killcam (4 deaths without a kill).
      2) Painkiller, Big health boost when you spawn (3 deaths without a kill).
      3) classified, (?) martydom (?)
      4) classified,

      For Weapons, go to Weapons Discussion thread here:

      XP, Experience Points:
      In COD4 the highest XP one could achieve was 55. In MW2 it is 70, which will unlock better weapons, titles, ranks, emblems. Rewards that allow you to gain XP include: getting headshots, shoot down helicopter, kill someone that was about to get a killstreak, kill the bomb diffuser or anything that benefits your team towards the goal of winning the match gets you benefits.

      Similar to the 3 perks of COD4, but now has many more options. Highlights: our secondary weapon can be something other than a pistol. Perks now have unlock challenges to attain 'Pro' status. You can view the Challenge Details for each perk and if you succeed in the challenge you unlock it.

      PERK 1:
      1) Marathon, Unlimited sprint. Pro = Vault obstacles faster.
      2) Sleight of Hand, Faster reloading. Pro = Aim down sights faster.
      3) Scavenger, Full ammo resupply from dead enemies.
      4) Bling, 2 primary weapons attachments.
      5) classified

      PERK 2:
      1) Stopping Power, Increased bullet damage. Pro = Increased damage.
      2) Lightweight, Move Faster.
      3) Hardline, Kill streak for 1 less kill. Pro = 1 less death for death streak.
      4) Clod-Blooded, Undetected to UAV, Air Support, Sentry and thermal.
      5) classified,

      PERK 3:
      1) Commando, Increased Melee distance.
      2) Steady Aim, Increased weapon accuracy (when firing from the hip).
      3) Scrambler, Jams nearby enemy radar, leaving only white noise.
      4) classified,
      5) classified,
      6) classified,

      Persistant Ranking TITLES:
      As you Rank up you will be given new Titles to choose from... and assign yourself that title and icon to be part of your game tag logo. There are some 21 pages of Titles and perhaps up to 27 per page and 567 distinct rank icons to choose from. You unlock these icons as you rank up. You get them by doing specialize things, like holding a position for a long time (camping), for being a knifer, stayed at a certain altitude the longest, or for some achievement that helps the team but during previous games was never recognized in some special way. This solves that problem and allows others to see your speciality and contribution. Gives you the ability to enhance your unique identity and become famous for it.

      As you Rank up you will be given new Emblems which reflect your Rank, like Private, Corporal, Sargeant, Lieutenant... There are 36 Ranks per page and a total of 7 pages to equal 252 Emblems one can unlock and assign to oneself.

      Prestige Mode:
      New elements to Prestige Mode than COD4, and new rewards for those who max. prestige mode.

      The above is part of MW2's Accollades system, at end of match there's a post-game report that everyone can see to show who's the top at whatever specific item is listed, like top kills, top captures, etc.

      No Multiplayer Achievements... the goal is to get people to play towards the objective of winning for the team versus playing to boost themselves towards some achievement and thus ignoring the objectives of the game.

      AntiCheat: There's a modded controller fix that prevents things like rapid-fire mods, incorporates all the 'blocks' of COD4 and builds upon that.

      No Beta Release.

      Special Animations and other features:
      1) When killed, you get to watch yourself, with the help of a nice animation, of yourself hitting the deck.
      2) You show damage with a 'wet blood spatter' what looks like on the glass of your monitor.
      3) Shoot through walls.
      4) 50 cent does a camo voice. One of many camo's that are in Multiplayer.

      Game Types:
      1) CTF, Capture the Flag, faster flag captures when multiple players stand on the flag spot.
      2) OBJ, Objective Game Type.



      help us build this for everyone interested in Modern Warfare 2... add a post of anything you notice.

    1) Snow Mobile, you mount, start and drive this vehicle.
    2) Hummer (rail game play mode)
    3) Mini Sub for Navy Seals team

    Note, eventually these single posts regarding a specific topic may be 'split' into it's own thread. So, if you don't find it mentioned here, look in the main MW2 board.
