Video game testing is a pretty big thing these days due to the amount of content in games and the expectations from consumers. We were contacted by an anonymous tipster who was supposedly alpha testing Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and we were able to have a brief discussion with him.
With a reveal which will hopefully come soon a lot of you may be wondering what kind of features MW3 could offer. Our source was very brief with some of the information and we only managed to get some key details to what people may find important in Modern Warfare 3. Perks, Maps & Guns where revealed during our discussion which he made clear multiple times that some details may change through out development. Our source mentioned 5 perks that were available during testing which were
Scavenger, Revelations, Pointblank, lifeline & Sleight of Hand. Two of these you may be familiar with but unfortunately he only gave me a description of Pointblank & Lifeline. Pointblank is a perk which makes makes your "reticle smaller" as he described it is "Cheating in plain sight" and "Helps you hit the head", a perk that makes you more accurate at gaining head shots. Not much was shed on the perk "Lifeline" but to my understanding it is something along the lines of stopping power pro.
According to our source his weapons of choice were the Vector, Colt 45 & Pacer 56. The Pacer 56 doesn't exist, at the time I started to question the truth behind his story and he had this to say about it "It's suppose to be a new weapon imported if a new war started". Apparently, only one map was available during testing titled "Detour" which he made comparisons to Hotel in Black Ops. The pacing in Modern Warfare 3 was described as "Faster than MW2" and a apparent cover system exist in the game "Oh yeah, your suppose to be able to hold on to cover".
Pointblank? Pacer 56? Cover system? Map called "Detour"? More fast paced than Modern Warfare 2? A whole lot of new things from this interview whether or not it's real we can't confirm. But it seems that, if even SOME of these items are true the next Call Of Duty could be a bit of a twist to the franchise, especially with that cover system.
Note: Scavenger and Revelations are the same thing
