I've wrote down everything I've seen in this video. They didn't show off everything so there's no list of the shotguns, light machine guns, snipers, perk 3, etc. I've been working on this for a while and I don't even like CoD much so please read if you're interested in this game. So far, it seems like.... Call of Duty. Nevermind the first few facts on this list they're there for humorous reasons.

The guy playing also sucks. 
That gun seems pretty shit. 
You can play as Africans. 
I hate that red dot sight.
The new game mode is called Kill Confirmed and you need to collect enemy dogtags to gain points. It says Denied Kill when the enemy team recovers their dogtags. It says Kill Confirmed when you get a collect an enemy's dogtag. 
Instead of doing challenges for guns like getting x amount of kills with x gun, the guns get experience and level up so you unlock things like that for your guns.  
Your guns get something called Proficiencies which kind of seem like perks for the guns. One is called kick and gives your gun less recoil. 
I'm guessing Juiced is a deathstreak perk. It let's you move faster for 7 seconds after spawning. 
They've taken out the nuke killstreak (obviously), OMA (whatever that is), lightweight, marathon, and commando. 
Overkill and Extreme Conditioning make a return. Sitrep, Sleight of Hand and Steady Aim are still there.  
Your custom classes have something in there called Strike Package. When you go to Strike Package, it says Assault, Support and Specialist. These killstreaks are basically class based. Assault will give you fighting based killstreaks while support gives you killstreaks that help your team.
The highest level I've seen so far is level 78. 
 

Killstreaks for the Assault part of Strike Packages. I think these killstreaks restart after you die, so you'll have to get your kills up again.

I.M.S.: The intelligent munitions system device detects and eliminates enemy combatants. You need 5 kills for this. It's basically a giant claymore. Can be seen at the ending of the horde mode trailer for MW3.
Strafe Run: Strafing run of 5 attack helicopters. You need 9 kills for this. So 5 helicopters just fly through a straight line shooting anything that moves is my guess.
Little Bird Guard: Get personal air support from a little bird guarding. You need 9 kills for this. I'm guessing this helicopter follows you and kills enemies ahead of you and such. 
Reaper: Lase missile targets remotely from the Reaper UAV. 9 kills. I have no clue really. 
Assault drone: Airdrop an assault drone. 10 kills. Common sense guys.
Juggernaut: Receive advanced armor via carepackage. 15 kills.
Osprey Gunner: Be the gunner of an Osprey delivering several carepackages. 17 kills. I'm guessing a chopper gunner that let's you drop carepackages. 
  
The Osprey Gunner is the last one there with 17 kills. The old killstreaks for this Assault class are UAV, Care Package, Predator Missile, Sentry Gun, Precision Airstrike, Attack Helicopter, AC130 and Pave Low.
 
Killstreaks for the Support class part of Strike Packages: These killstreaks persists though death. I'm guessing you keep killstreaks after dying so you won't restart with a 0 killstreak. 
 
UAV: 4 kills 
Counter UAV: 5 kills. 
Ballistic Vests: Deply a bag of ballistic vests to your team. 5 kills. It gives a little bit of extra health for a small amount of time. Your teammates have to go to the package with these vests to get one.
Airdrop Trap: Kill enemies with a booby-trapped airdrop crate. 5 kills. Basically a rigged care package.
Sam Turret: 8 kills. 
Recon Drone: Control a recon drone targeting enemies for your team. 10 kills.
Advanced UAV: Call in an Orbital Recon that shows the direction your enemy is facing. 12 kills.
Remote Turret: Toss a small turret and remotely control it.12 kills.
Stealth Bomber: 14 kills.
EMP: Temporarily disables enemy electronics.18 kills. 
Juggernaut Recon: Receive advanced armor via carepackage.18 kills. Also has a mini radar around him so teammates can stick with him.
Escort Airdrop: 18 kills.

New perks, even though they do what the perks they took out did. Just different names now.

Definitely not us though. I just put this up for the CoD heads on GiantBomb. I think I'll get bored 5 minutes in watching it.
#4 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

Shouldn't this be in the MW3 forum? Anyways, yeah I saw some of it and just went "oh well, that's the most time I'm gonna spend with that game" .. Looks good though, it's just not a game for me

#5 Posted by gamb1t (960 posts) -

i went all the way up to black ops, tomahawk made it interesting for months but they wont trick me into buying this whatsoever.

#6 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

 I'll probably buy this on a Steam sale a few weeks before the next one comes out for 20 or 30 bucks.  It's nice to have a CoD game to get in and play a match or two when I don't want to commit an hour to playing a few rush matches in Battlefield.  Also, the guy playing is absolutely terrible.

I can't think of anything more boring to watch.

You could have told me that that was a new map for Black Ops. I would have believed you.

#11 Posted by Animasta (14719 posts) -

the guy on the right kinda looks like shia labeouf

#12 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

In all honesty, it looks like MW 2. The hardcore players could probably tell the difference.

The biggest change I've seen (in a long time) from the Call of Duty games is that, for some reason, the credits keeps getting shorter.

I don't think anyone can honestly. Only thing I've seen different was in the multiplayer trailer today was that you can have 2 scopes on one gun and change them anytime.

If you think about it, shouldn't it have more credits now? There are a shitload more studios being grouped in to work on those games, at least MW 3 is.

Glad I made someone at least chuckle on the inside :p

#18 Posted by Mentalnova (139 posts) -

Too bad that 3rd person COD game was canned in order to get this out the door on time. Seriously, it's just new maps for MW2.

#19 Posted by Joeybagad0nutz (1438 posts) -

Still looks like call of duty....

Meh, most of those people are probably not even working on the game and are just there so they have someone new to fire.

Very seriously. Only thing I've noticed from what I've seen is that it says kill denied when you shoot someone but they get away. 
 
Denied kill actually.
#22 Posted by Subjugation (4740 posts) -

Watched 3 minutes, realized it was nothing new. They should honestly just pass this stuff off as DLC/expansions.

#23 Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG (4284 posts) -

that first map reminds me of a map straight out of Black Ops....

They should. There is another new thing that I haven't wrote on my OP though. There's more words on-screen!

It actually kind of does now that you say that.
#25 Posted by clstirens (847 posts) -

I made it 3 minutes in and got REALLY bored... So I skipped in a couple a times, still nothing.. 
 
Even these pre release videos and gameplay fail to excite me, and that's still saying something considering I actually played most of the CoD games (even 1 and 2, yeah I used to be a fan of these series. All the way up until 4, actually, I was a big fan)

The guy playing also sucks. 
The guy playing is playing against COD fans who spent 150 dollars on a ticket to COD XP, and some who are there to try to win a million dollar tournament.  Most aren't your regular players. 
 
That said, I didn't think he was very good either.
#27 Posted by awesomeusername (4216 posts) -
@clstirens: Then feel sorry for me! I'm dying going through this video just so I can state some things that are new(?) for people who want details. I'm pretty sure no one cares though so I'm probably just wasting my time. But I don't have anything better to do. Wait, I have to put music on my iPod. Eh, whatever. I'll just keep on ding this. 
 
I started with CoD4 and loved it and that's why I got W@W. I loved that one too but MW2 was terrible and Blop's was alright. Now the series is just stale and when I play Blop's, I get super-bored. I don't own MW2 or Blop's though, I play those at friends houses or if I borrow it. For some reason, I have more fun playing the hack infested W@W right now more then Blops. Goes to show how much things stuffed down MW2's throat. I don't see how anyone can watch these videos and think it looks awesome. Goes to show opinions should be banned! I'm jk. But seriously, how can anyone watch through this and think it's amazing?

You have a point. Forgot about those crazy CoD people. But you think a person working on CoD would be pretty god at the game. Or you wouldn't. Eh, whatever.
#29 Posted by Winger (151 posts) -

Looks like the most different call of duty in years.

I'm impressed and interested, not sure if I entirely trust their ambition though.

This could either be honestly great or a train wreck, and I still can't tell.

#30 Posted by awesomeusername (4216 posts) -
@Winger: I have to disagree. Looks a lot like MW2 and Blops. The most different game in the series was MW2 and it wasn't different in a good way. But opinions man! What can we do?
#31 Posted by spankingaddict (2735 posts) -

I'll play MW3 , but it doesn't look like anything new or different  : (       Also, That 70's Show rocks !!!

#32 Posted by awesomeusername (4216 posts) -
@spankingaddict: I'll go to my friends house to play through the campaign with him and play a couple matches online. Then I'll wait until the next CoD to borrow it for trophies.
#33 Posted by Strife777 (1612 posts) -

I won't say anything in particular. I liked MW2. I also liked Black Ops. I will probably like this one. That doesn't make me a bad person right.

Hell yes it does! I'm going to make your ass into a hat! I'm jk. Opinions will be opinions. Everyone is entitled to theirs. No one here will attack you... Even though you must be insane... I'm jk!!! :D
#35 Posted by Strife777 (1612 posts) -

@awesomeusername: I will fight you to the death, sir!

#36 Posted by awesomeusername (4216 posts) -
@Strife777: Uhhhhh.... Sorry, I just can't do death. I'm kind of putting down information about this game for you people who like CoD. Go check out my first post! I'm not working here for no reason!!!
#37 Posted by President_Barackbar (3474 posts) -

This is essentially the Madden of shooters now. Not that there's anything wrong with enjoying either, its just the fact that its a joyless rehash year after year, or as they like to say in the game, same shit different day.

#38 Posted by awesomeusername (4216 posts) -
@President_Barackbar: Unfortunately, yes, it is. I'm bored to hell just watching the video but I will thrive on and bring new information for whoever wants to read this!
#39 Posted by Arker101 (1472 posts) -

Yeah, the menu's for custom classes were the only thing that stood out to me, as new. The graphics are a little shinier, but even the +100 XP text looked the same. Some of my friends are starting to feel same way about the state of CoD's production, so eh.

Reaper: Lose missile targets remotely from the Reaper UAV. 9 kills. I have no clue really. 

It's LASE targets, not lose targets. It's done from a UAV, so it might be from a top down perspective. I hope there's something interesting about it, cause so far it sounds like every other killstreak reward.
#41 Edited by Marz (5671 posts) -

looks similar to mw2 but they seem to have taken out the gamebreaking perks and will probably be more fun than mw2.   I'll be playing skyrim though during mw3 release week so it'll probably be something i pickup next year on a steam sale.

Thanks for that. I had a feeling it said lase but I it shows that squiggly line under it so I figured it said lose. I'm watching the video on my iPod  by the way so the letters are kind of blurred.

That Kill Confirmed mode actually looks like a nice idea.

For a second there I thought that this was about the 40 minutes of Campaign and I wondered why would they show more than half of the game?

#48 Posted by JBird (490 posts) -

I cant believe the hate on this game. The amount of dislikes on the call of duty videos. If the game sucks, it sucks. If its awesome, it'll be awesome. If they had made loads of changes the nerd rage would just be altered to "OMG THEY ARE COPYING BATTLEFIELD", but because they are adding to an already very popular game its "OMG NO CHANGES IT LOOKS LIKE THE OLD CALL OF DUTY" I feel so sorry for the guys making it! They can do no right.  
 
I think this is all playing into treyarch's hands so amazingly though.  They get 2 years to make the next call of duty game, and will be able to take on board all the information that arises from both MW3 and Battlefield 3. They will have to fight the uphill struggle of nerd rage but they are well poised to do a good job.

The haters only wish there favorite game did COD numbers.  haha  men/women lie numbers don't.
