Activision surprised Modern Warfare 2 players last month when he announced a 6v6 map would be coming early in Season 2, in a bid to alleviate frustration with CoD’s premium side. This map shows today’s Himmelmatt Expo, a modernist mountain hut in blue, brown and gray. Between the meeting room and the reception, you’ll find a bar, restaurant and pool, a realistic exhibition hall built for the business traveler who is actually on vacation. I think you should add bullet holes and RPG craters to your pamphlet.
Patchday’s more beloved is his traditional 6v6 Call of Duty. The Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 Reloaded Patch, released today, includes a new ‘core’ multiplayer map, the next episode of MW2’s co-op raid, a new DMR based on M4, and 2 from the mood-lighting party mode. After a ranked night that includes the second drop.
If one new map isn’t enough, he may find himself enjoying the Tempus Torrent Marksman Rifle, a single-fire shooter that joins his existing M4 weapon tree. It has a 20-round base magazine and a supposedly fast rate of fire, and full-auto is a winning combination for the DMR he hopes will compete with rifles, but Activision says it has a “noticeable kick-up and left hand side.” He said he can handle it. Must. “
Luckily, you may soon be able to equip your Tempus with the full set of attachments. As an M4 platform gun, it carries over most of the grips, sights and supplies unlocked for these guns. Usually his new CoD weapon can only be unlocked in the Battle Pass at first, but this one comes mid-season, so with the Sniper Rifle he needs to get 25 double kills (or from the store he needs a Tempus Requires the purchase of a cosmetic pack). It’s a pretty steep challenge! Multi-killing can be a struggle as marksman rifles aren’t the most agile weapons to begin with, but with some luck and a good campsite you can do it in 1pm or he 2.
Their party mode looks pretty fun too. Everyone starts all-or-nothing with an empty pistol and a throwing knife. Earn perks by getting kills “starting with scavenger perks that allow you to pick up ammo.”
