MW3 – No Deep Penetration On SMGs – More on Explosives, Pointstreaks, and Anti-Cheat System

With the release of Modern Warfare 3 about a month away, Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling reveals some interesting information about the game.


No “Impact” On SMGs

In modern warfare 2, we used to load guns with Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) bullets  in order to add deeper penetration. However, this system has been modified in MW3, as Robert clarified “Deeper Bullet Penetration is a weapon proficiency now, not an attachment.” Read our complete list of proficiencies for more details on all the options. What’s interesting is, unlike Modern Warfare 2, SMGs can’t feature deep impact; “[Impact is] only available on Assault, LMG, and Snipers.”

Do you normally equip your SMGs with “Impact-like” attachments or perks? Let us know in the comments’ section below.

Pointstreaks are Non-Lethal

The new killstreaks’ system has raised a few questions among the community; specially the fact that support strike package doesn’t reset the streak count after dying. Robert reassured “only Support Strike Package (pointstreak rewards that don’t get you kills, provide team support) don’t reset.” If you’re not similar with what are the pointstreak rewards, be sure to read our complete list of killstreaks.

Are you looking forward to non-lethal killstreaks? Personally, I do run Spy Plane, Counter Spy Plane, and Blackbird setup in Black Ops, and it works quite well.

Explosives Toned Down

Explosives have always been a hot topic in the Call of Duty community. Modern Warfare 2 had the most controversial use of explosives. However, in my opinion, Black Ops struck a good balance with the introduction of Flak Jacket. Robert tweeted that “explosives do a lot less damage in MW3, plus there is new equipment (Trophy System) to combat them as well.”

No Cheaters are Allowed

The PC community was unsure if the anti-cheat measures were only in place for paid members of elite or everyone. Robert clarified “anti-cheat is something all users benefit from. Regardless of subscription to Elite or not.”
