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.

Only game I've ever pre-ordered besides MGS4.

So stoked for this game….
I logged so many hours on COD4 multiplayer, it's just sad.

I highly doubt it will be "wasting" your money. I'm laso getting R&C but that's not gonna give me my FPS fix. Neither is Uncharted sooo COD4:MW2 FTW

I really hoped they would take martyrdom out. It's the only thing I really didn't like in Modern Warfare. It really actually worked only rarely, but _everyone_ chose it, and it was just very annoying.

Every time you killed someone, you had to run away before they detonated.

After a little while, I was saying about anyone who _didn't_ detonate after I shot them: "Wow. That one was a dud."

There were very few.

Martyrdom doesn't add anything interesting to the game. It's pure annoyance. I really wish they'd get wise and remove it from MW2.

But you know they're not. And here it is already listed.

Yes, Martyrdom is annoying. Some people say, "Then don't use it…", but that's missing the point. It forces everybody in the game to play differently, regardless of whether or not you use it yourself. Maybe they could offer "Martyrdom-less" DM modes.

Second chance is more aggravating to me. Especially when I'm unloading a full type 100 clip into the guy and he nails me seconds after falling to the ground. Not to mention the long range kills dudes get with a handgun. WTF???

I love seeing people complain about perks 😀 It's really funny.

You can throw back the grenade that is dropped. It's actually a lot easier than you think. If you kill them and you're near enough to see the grenade icon, instead of running, grab the grenade and chuck it away.

As for Last Stand, just throw a stun grenade at them or leave someone else finish them off.

is your aim that bad? i usually kill people from far away and when i get close i just throw the grenade away or use sprint away, its not that hard. I also dont run into people i killed, i move back cause they were probably teammates behind him. I think its just a deterrent for guys who teabag. plus it works well if people sneak up on you or just rush in.

@nasah, people get greedy online so they want to get all the point they can, thats just how it is. i hear more people complaining about stealing their kills than martyrdom. I know because i've been on the receiving end of this retaliation by my own team member. I play headquarters and was guarding the inside of the building while this guy just kept getting in my way.

I was planning on buying this game until they got a load of money from $$$.Gamers deserve respect, it doesn't matter what console we own. This is the reason y money goes to exclusive titles from now on. Anyways, I still need my 10,000 kills for Resistance 2.

I'll admit the game looks promising but I just cannot get excited for it, there is no way I'm spending $150 on cheapo night vision goggles. It's not going to be any BC2 but it will suffice.

Matyredom never annoyed me enough, I just laughed in annoyance when it got me, it's when I get killed by someone on second chance…it ticks me off.

The one that really annoys me though is rifle grenades…it takes no skill to blow someone up from point blank range -_-

Once I read the word "martyrdom," it further reinforced my decision to skip MW2 all together for Borderlands and Uncharted 2.

I will be getting this game but I will make sure I buy it somewhere where my money isn't given to Activision. The fact that Activision/Infinity Ward will be making exclusive maps for the "competition" just pisses me off. I hate how
Microsoft just throw out checks to make something from a multiplat AAA game (which are rare nowahdays) exclusive to their "console".

I dont know about the riot shield though, sounds like it might slow the gameplay a little. Plus side, you can kill 3 guys with one grenade since you know people will be using this a lot. I just hope its limits how many can player can use this in a single game. I dont want to play a match where everyones using riot shields.
