While Infinity Ward seems to have been hitting all the right notes with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, that seemingly changed overnight with yesterday’s news that the Spec Ops Survival mode will be exclusive to PS4 gamers for one year. Well, today, things seem to have turned for the worst as Modern Warfare Supply Drops weapon involvement has seemingly been confirmed!
This was revealed by reliable leaker and YouTuber TheGamingRevolution who added that the “Salvage” system (where you can exchange dupes) have also been removed. Based on his tweets, this is all Activision’s doing, which isn’t that surprising if true given how much the publisher earns from Call of Duty microtransactions.
Who wants 300+ emotes in supply drops, who wants 500+ titles, who wants over 200 sprays in supply drops YAYAYAYAYAYYA Weapons are coming too, forget any cosmetic only malarkey
They’re literally changing so much. They had A FAIR SYSTEM WITH SALVAGE and then they just remove it. I hope something changes by release, I swear.
This is such a disservice to the developers who have worked so hard on the game. Not everyone wants all of this.
Before anyone starts complaining, remember that this is a rumor and as such, should be taken with a grain of salt. Of course, TGR has been rather accurate, which means there’s a very high possibility that this is legit. Also, the chances of this being Activision’s doing rather than Infinity Ward’s is rather high as well, especially given the studio’s “player-first” comments last month.
Note that Supply Drops (Call of Duty’s version of loot boxes) have been confirmed to be in the game, so this new development isn’t really all that surprising after what we’ve experienced in Black Ops 4.
