Modern Warfare 3 Info (Updated 4/11/11)

MW3 will include a hidden 25 killstreak. It is called a M.O.A.B and it is similar to the nuke of MW2 in a way that it kills all opponents, but it does not kill your own team and forces an EMP onto the enemy for the rest of the match. It can only be unlocked via gun kills (no killstreaks) and I would imagine only once per game.
You can find videos of it if you are lucky, but there is one place that I know there is a video but it can only be viewed using a link so I guess if people want that then I can supply it in the comments.

Who is actually buying this game?
As some of you may know, I am a massive fan of this game and the series as a whole. I know some of you may not give a sh*t about this game and if you don't, I don't understand why you have come on this post in the first place, I will be making a list of things that are new, things that have changed and things that are the same, for those of you that have not been following events that have been happening up to the launch.

To make it more... Umm... User friendly I will try to upload everything as pictures.

First of all, perks.

There are 3 tiers of perks, handily named, Tier 1, Tier 2 & Tier 3 :P

Tier 1 Perks

Tier 2 Perks

Tier 3 Perks

Death Streaks

Next up is Strike Packages. There are 3 different kind, Assault, Support & Specialist. Assault is the same format as previous CoD games. Support packages are more orientated to helping the rest of your team and does not reset after you die. Specialist streaks are completely different, aimed at more advanced players, instead of giving killstreaks you can give yourself an extra perk.

Because there is not enough information to bother with an image, the Specialist Strike Packages is as follows: After 2 kills, you get your 4th perk, 4 kills you get your 5th perk, 6 kills you get your 6th perk and after 8 kills you unlock every perk possible.

Assault Strike Packages

Support Strike Packages

There are a few new things in the game. One of such things is the Prestige Shop, every time a player enters a new prestige they are given a Prestige Token. They are also given out for each CoD game that you have prestige on before. These can be used to unlock the following:

Extra custom class
Double XP
Double weapon XP
Regular Package
Unlock Gear
Hardened Package
Veteran Package
Reset all stats

Spec Ops modes return.

Mission Mode
Mission mode is a mode similar to Modern Warfare 2's Spec Ops co-op mode. It will feature various missions such as timed missions or objectives, as opposed to survival mode's wave-based gameplay.

Survival Mode
Survival Mode is a new mode featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's Special Ops mode in which players must fend off waves of A.I. controlled enemies on various multiplayer maps.

The waves are randomized, yet increasingly difficult, so that in the later stages of the game, players can expect to face multiple Juggernauts, dogs strapped with C4 and enemy air support simultaneously. There is no means of winning in this game mode, as the waves will continue until the player has lost. Like other Special Ops missions, co-op is available for this mode, both online or split-screen.

That is it for now, I can add more information if people want it.

    Gonna get it when it comes out. Gonna have the same perks that i did in Black Ops, Sleight of Hand, Hardline, and SitRep

    I will probably be using Sleight of Hand, Assasin & Dead Silence :)
    Assasin because I hate it when people know where I am on the map (Also because it has a bad ass name)

    I am a huge CoD fan but I will be switching to BF3 because CoD is becoming the Madden of FPS (the same damn game every year)

  • 1

    i want to get it but i doubt it, i have no money and it isnt the top of my game list.

    CoD is always at the top of my games list! I got CoD4 for christmas and every other CoD pre-oredered and WaW & Black Ops I got early with MW2 on the day.

    Very nice post sir. I have been to lazy to look stuff up on MW3 and this being here made it very easy for me. so thank you :D

    Like Exile said the whole 8 kills = every perk does seem alittle much but I suppose not recieving killstreaks balances out and I suppose it then resets after you die. so I guess I have to play it to see how it works out. I like that they split the kill streaks into 3 different groups. I'm glad they're giving me more choices to how I play and differ from the other players.

    Personally I also can't wait for the campaign as its gonna be epic I'm betting however I probably won't play it until I get tired of multiplayer or internet goes out or something. Ehh whatevs. Can't wait for this game. Had it payed off since I finished Basic Training so I'm excited XD

    Still debating on getting Elite or not.

    To be honest there is no way that I would ever pay £35 a year for CoD Elite. That is crazy. But what I am doing is buying the Hardened edition of the game so I get free CoD Elite & all the DLC free too amongst other things.

    People are saying the Specialist streaks weill be overpowered once somebody gets all the perks. To be honest it is FAR from that!
    I think it would be much easier to use the usual killstreaks to get choppers and harriers and the like to get kills than to actually go out and get the kills yourself.
    None of the perks actually give you more life so if you knife them then they die instantly, losing all the perks you earned.
    - TryThat November 2, 2011, 2:15 pm
    Yea I'm upgrading my preorder to the hardened edition as well as its a much better deal.

    I agree with it not being overpowered as it can be lost once you loss. However I can see it being extremely useful in the hands of a skilled player, making it far more useful then say an AC130. I guess it just depends on your style and plan of attack. Personally I'll probably stick with the support streaks mostly.

    so i am 15th prestige in black ops, does that mean i am going to get 15 of those tokens?

    Nope. You get 1 token for CoD4, one token for WaW, one for MW2 & one for Black Ops. So even if you have prestiged to max level on each game, you can only get a maximum of 4 tokens. But on MW3 you get 1 token per prestige. So you get a max of 14 tokens I think. But I am not 100% sure about that.
    - TryThat November 3, 2011, 3:44 pm
    ok thanks, i wish i got 15 of them haha
    i am going to guess that you can buy the tokens with a credit card or microsoft points on what ever ps3s have
    - kermit6427 November 4, 2011, 2:20 pm
    I'm not sure about that. There are plenty of ways to unlock the tokens so I doubt you will be able to buy them.

    Haha, instead of choosing Skyrim, BF3, or MW3, im simply gonna buy them all ^.^

    I only want MW3 though. If I could get all 3 for free I wouldn't..

    Haha, Im getting BF3 from my friend (collectors ftw) because he hates it. MW3 from a contest I won, and skyrim (collectors again ftw) because my friend owes me from stuff i gave him a long time ago haha
