Modern Warfare All Optics Showcased, Infinity Ward Explains Why Ammo Boxes Need a Button Press to Use

Possibly one of the best new features introduced by Infinity Ward in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is how robust the gun customization is in the Gunsmith. There are hundreds of combinations from the different muzzles, ammo types, sights and more. Unfortunately, there’s no way to preview guns (especially the sights) on how they’ll look when ADS (aiming down sights). Well, we’re here to help. Check out the image below for the Modern Warfare all optics showcase image!

The image, courtesty of Reddit user cs_aaron lists the name of the optic (sight), its view when your character is idle, when you’re aiming down sights, and even its alternate sight (canted, dual zoom, etc.).

Now you don’t need to hop into an actual match to see if an optic is somnething you’d like to use or not.

In related Modern Warfare weapons news, for those who participated in the beta, you might have noticed that the ammo box Field Upgrade now needs to be “used” (ie: pressing a button to get bullets) now instead of in the beta wherein you just had to be near it in order to resupply your character. Well, Infinity Ward Co-Design Director of Multiplayer Joe Cecot explained his reasoning why this has been changed in response to a Reddit user’s question.

It’s because we added grenades to it post beta. Now you can deploy for your team or yourself and not waist the use on a few bullets missing from your stock.

Cecot’s reasoning does make sense. I have encountered instances where I accidentally picked a gun up instead of having my bullets resupplied. My bigger concern is why can’t we use it more than once (even if just for bullets) in one life?

Which sight/optic are you using in Modern Warfare and what’s the best one so far? Let us know in the comments.
