Shooting people from around the world in the face is all very well and good, but sometimes you just need a little more variety, so Infinity Ward have announced that they’ll be adding some shiny new playlists to the massively popular shooter known as Modern Warfare 3. These new playlists will bring some spice to the game by……well, letting you shoot people in the face, really. They also confirmed that more playlists will be coming in the future.
They’ll also be adding in the new Community Playlist, which is where they’ll be sticking popular or unique private match modes so that the entire world can enjoy them, all with the added bonus of actually earning XP for doing so.
So, simply fire up your copy of the game and enjoy these new modes:
Get to the drop zone to earn points, the first team to 7500 points wins the round, but thats not all. As long as the Drop Zone is occupied, a care package will drop every 15 seconds, which ever team has the most members in the drop zone at that point “owns” the care package, but anyone can steal it. This is the only way to earn air support in this mode, all other pointstreaks are disabled. You’ll earn 20 points per team member, for every second they’re in the drop zone plus 20 XP individually for your time spent in the zone. Kills are worth 50 XP in this mode.
Custom Settings: Pointstreaks (besides those obtained through in-game care packages) are disabled.
Hardcore HQ Ricochet
We’ll be adding Hardcore Headquarters to the Hardcore Team Tactical playlist.
We’ll be converting all Hardcore modes to Ricochet variant as a response to team killing. This means, any friendly fire, is applied to the attacker, rather than the victim. So choose your shots wisely and any attempt to team kill will simply kill yourself.“
