Modern Warfare 2: controversy over aim assist

Modern Warfare 2

In addition to cheaters and glitches, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta showed that the game's aim assist is fundamentally "broken". In fact, in a series of clips shared on Twitch, it has been shown that the aim assist is perhaps a little too strong compared to the mouse and keyboard and that it allows you to get streak of kills without too much effort.

The too much the effectiveness of the aim assist has obviously not gone unnoticed. In the clips shared on Twitter by the content creator Maxiq, in fact, it is only too clear how much the bullets manage to hit the opponent without too many problems, even when the gun's sight is not in the center. Maxiq also stated that he hardly ever moved the right analog stick to shift the aim. "This triple kill is only the result of aim assist", the words of the content creator entrusted to the social network.

Aim assist is present in almost all first person and third person shooter available on consoles. The problem, in this case, is that the aim assist used seems too powerful and it is difficult to blame the content creator. In the clip, which you can find a little further down, Maxiq does not actually move its lever at all and the bullets still reach the three targets. "I feel bad for all those who will use mouse and keyboard", the words of the content creator expressed after publishing the offending clip.

I actually feel bad for MnK players in COD

context off this clip: I literally didn't even move my thumbstick at all to switch between the targets. it was all aim assist…

Clearly the game is still in beta and it is very likely that Infinity Ward has already received criticism of the aim assist of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It is therefore not to be excluded that before the final release of the game, set for October 28, 2022 (and which you can book on Amazon), the entire system is not revised and made less "effective".

Modern Warfare 2 players have discovered that the reworked Dead Silence field upgrade alters enemies of your location, and fans are not happy about it.

Modern Warfare 2 has been hosting an open beta for all players to test out the FPS before its October 28 release date.

During the playtest Call of Duty fans have been discovering the best loadouts for each weapon and sharing their, mostly negative, opinions on the SBMM matchmaking system.

With so many changes coming to MW2’s remake, there’s one specific change that’s confused fans.

Dead Silence in 2022’s Modern Warfare 2 has been reworked into a Field Upgrade. The buff was a perk in the original Modern Warfare 2, and instantly made your player not make sounds when moving around the map.

Now, in this year’s CoD, you’ll need to die a few times before getting your hands on Dead Silence from the Field Upgrade. And now it needs to be activated by a player animation, and one that emits a loud screeching sound that alerts players around you that you’ve activated the ability.

The sound the upgrade emits makes the buff seemingly do the opposite of what it is supposed to do, which is help players stay under the radar when moving around.

CDL broadcaster MerK was confused by the sound, “I kept hearing that and thought something blew up on the map or someone set a microwave off. What the hell.”

Clearly, the sounds Dead Silence makes are confusing fans and causing the buff to do the opposite of what it’s supposed to.

Another player was also confused by the bizarre changes to the buff, “So basically there’s nothing dead about that silence. Pretty much replaced footsteps with an alarm.”

As of now, it’s unclear if the FIeld Upgrade will be changed before launch.
