You know what can be fun? Looking at a little icon and guessing for yourself what it might indicate…without the aid of a manual or guide.
Although many want to think that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is just a boring ol' sequel; perhaps even a rehash, the truth of the matter is that we'll get some significant upgrades and enhancements this time around. Oh, and let's not forget about an entirely new story and setting (we kinda despise the term "rehash," if you didn't already know). Take a gander at a few of the new multiplayer perks and see if any of 'em catch your eye: up top are the 100% confirmed ones, as Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling announced both already; the Riot Shield and Martyrdom. As for the Shield, two guys will be able to carry it while a third crouches behind it and fires away, which sounds like a totally bad-ass plan. Then there are the icons we're only guessing at for now, although some are fairly plain, like the Dual Wield icon (dual wield any sidearm). There's the winged foot icon, for example, which could indicate faster, longer or even lighter (stealth, baby!) movement. These icons come from a recent teaser trailer so we know they're in the game, and it's only a matter of time before the perks are fully confirmed.
More info and details will continue to head our way over the next few months, and we assume a great many of you have November 11 marked on your calendars. It's gonna be a huge launch.
