We already know that Modern Warfare 3 is going to come with a lot of guns but that doesn’t mean that you will be constantly switching out weapons.
Infinity Ward’s Creative Strategist Robert Bowling spoke to OXM about the new folding scopes that they will be introducing in Modern Warfare 3.
“Say you’re picking guys in windows out long range in Manhattan, but then kick through a door and start clearing a building, you can now fold down your magnifying scope and already have a close-range optic on your gun – so now you’re engaging guys close-target without having to change weapon.”
Bowling also detailed a new weapon that will be introduced in Modern Warfare 3 known as the XM25 Air Burst Grenade Launcher or “Punisher” for short.
“It’s great for when you’re fighting in an urban environment. If a guy is behind a concrete barrier, you can laser-tag that cover point, fire over it and it will then programme the round to explode one metre past it. Anyone hiding behind it will be showered down.”
