When it comes to Call of Duty , what are your favorite perks? Is Commando one of them?
If so, be prepared to go without when Modern Warfare 3 hits on November 8. If you're unfamiliar, the Commando perk allows you to kill members of the opposing team with the knife from a further distance. Such a perk has generated quite the backlash amongst the CoD community; some will defend it to high heaven while others will shriek and curse and freak right out when they die due to Commando. Well, Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling has confirmed that MW3 won't have the perk:
"Its been balanced, plus Commando is no longer in the game. Beyond that, you'll have to wait and see."
For now, we're not sure if the disappearance of Commando also means we won't see the Pro version of the perk, which negates fall damage and gives players a strategic advantage on certain maps. Maybe this will stay in the game as a Pro variant of a different perk; who knows? But the bottom line is that knifing from a crazy distance will be gone. You okay with that?
