More about the game

The entire game is a continuation and sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The plot continues the struggle of the US forces taking on the Russian invaders across different global cities. The game is made more challenging for the player as it requires the player to kill more enemies and unlock more missions to gain access to the higher-grade weapon arsenals and win points. The Survival mode also referred to as the Co-opt mode allows you to face a wave of enemies including Nazi Zombies that threaten the good forces. You can choose characters from Task Force 141, SAS and even Delta Force to represent you in the war. The way to gather more points for unlocking weapon and maps is by registering maximum kills.

The different types of point streaks you need to look out for while playing this game are Assault Pointstreaks, Support Pointstreaks and Specialist Pointstreaks. Every Pointstreak has its individual advantage for the player. Every game mode has its own set of commands, for instance in the Kill Confirmed mode you will need to collect the dog tags from killed enemy players and Team Defender mode will require you to collect the dropped flag. In addition to these modes, the player can also play a series of customized modes such as Infected, Drop Zone, Team Juggernaut, Gun Game and One in Chamber. You can share your game results and scores on the Call of Duty: Elite online services.

Pointstreaks and Strike Packages

Killstreaks, benefits and abilities awarded for stringing together multiple kills, have been transformed into Pointstreaks, creating a system that rewards players both for landing kills and completing objectives. These rewards have been broken up into three different categories, known as Strike Packages:

  • Assault - Pointstreaks within this package chain together and deal direct damage. It includes classics like the Predator Missile and Attack Helicopter. Your streak resets on death.
  • Support - Pointstreaks within this package do not chain, focusing instead on surveillance and disruption. Your streak does not reset on death meaning they will respawn with you.
  • Specialist - Pointstreaks within this package are designed for advanced players. Rewards come in the form of additional perks for optimal performance. These perks last until death.
Weapon Proficiencies

Just like your player, weapons now rank up, unlocking additional attachments, reticules, camos and the new proficiency category. Weapon Proficiencies not only allow you to get better with weapons, they also allow you customize your weapons with helpful attributes such as "Kick" for reduced recoil, "Impact" for deeper penetration through hard surfaces and much more. Many proficiencies are specific to their weapons class. And all are geared towards enhancing a certain play style and can allow for efficient use of your favorite weapons in maps and game modes in which they might not otherwise be the best choice.

Modes and Match Customization

Along with the return of the fan favorites Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 introduces several new game modes. Collect dog tags from killed players, including those on your squad while you prevent the opposing squad from taking yours in Kill Confirmed mode. In Team Defender mode, grab the flag and protect the flag carrier for as long as you can to increase your team's score. In addition players will enjoy user generated match mode functionality which allows you to configure any mode how you want it and then share these over the Call of Duty: Elite online service.

2-player Co-op Special Ops Survival Mode

Special Ops cooperative action returns with a bevy of additions, including 16 new objective-based missions and the all-new Survival Mode. Team up online, locally, or play solo and face endless waves of attacking enemies throughout every multiplayer map. Purchase and customize your weapons, air support, equipment and abilities to stand up against increasingly difficult forces and land a spot on the leaderboards. Earn experience and rank up with the newly implemented progression system. The higher the rank, the more weapons, air support, and gear armories you will have available to customize so you can change your tactics on the fly. In addition to the action packed battle for freedom, the cooperative Survival Mode also serves as an effective training tool for competitive multiplayer action.

Call of Duty: Elite

The service offers both free and subscription based levels of access and is dedicated to the game franchise, featuring lifetime statistics across multiple games, social-networking options, competitions, a mobile app, Facebook integration and more.
