More MW3 Questions Answered

We’re still awaiting the Spec Ops Survival Mode trailer. This article is a continuation of this article. But this time, Robert Bowling takes questions from the Call of Duty Twitterverse. Some of them are about Spec Ops, and some of them are about MW3 multiplayer balancing.

CommandaSmith asked if we can use custom classes that we’ve already created, and if we’re able to unlock awesome weapons such as the Desert Eagle. Mr. Bowling answered…

No. Spec Ops has a separate ranking system than Multiplayer and a unique way of unlocking weapons in waves.

Alkhars asked if MW3 will feature new attachments in multiplayer, and whether we can use weapons from multiplayer, in Spec Ops…

Lots of new stuff. Single Player and Multiplayer weapon lists share some, but vary too. Especially in how they’re balanced.

HYVOLTAG3 asked if there’s any new multiplayer gametypes, Mr. Bowling made a short answer to it…

Yes sir, but multiplayer details can’t be shared yet.

jamessmith233 asked when the Spec Ops video would be released, Robert answered…

Its taken on a life of its own, and were capturing even more footage. As soon as I have an ETA, I’ll let you know!

..Whoa, whoa. That’s a ‘lil too much information, Mr. Bowling!

Hopefully it’s worth the wait, because it’s been a month that we’ve been waiting for this Spec Ops trailer. BENGALGHOST asked what Rob meant by different melee system…

Its been balanced, plus Commando is no longer in the game. Beyond that, you’ll have to wait and see.

And actually, this is a much expanded version of a question that Rob answered earlier.

There is no commando in #MW3

It was posted on July 8th by a user named PSN_SMOGGIE; he asked if Commando has been taken out. Similarly EdHugz asks if Riot Shields will be making a return, Rob didn’t confirm or deny it…

I agree, it is awesome and can lead to awesome moments, but I can’t confirm specific MP weapons just yet.

…So, if you can read between the lines – it is confirmed. I’ve had a lot of fun with Riot Shields, as do EdHugz and dozens others. Msikkema66 asked Robert if he thinks that the MW3 Survival Mode is on par with the Zombie Survival Mode. For better or worse, Rob made this statement…

They’re very different experiences. Spec Ops Survival is one of my favorite parts of MW3, so much variety in one mode.

Stay tuned for the new Spec Ops Survival Mode trailer.

Hope that, in MP, the weapon stats that the game displays are the real ones. I love knifing but it should be harder. WEE NEED BOTS IN SPLIT SCREEN (like in Perfect Dark or Black Ops).
Is the game going to have 4 player split screen system link?

Reading the previous post, it will be interesting to see how they change the points system for strategy games like Sabotage and Domination, because yep I am one of those that hat those that just run around and play it like free for all or TDM. Really ruins the spirit of the game
