Yeah, I kno this is the Modern Warfare 2 forum and all, but i've been thinking about some ideas for modern warfare 3.
 
Maybe, at the start of a multiplayer game, you start in a helicopter, and your team 'leader' either a random player or the player with the most kills from the previous game chooses where your team lands on the battlefield. I would like to see some more strategic elements as well, like several squads set up in buildings etc. I would like a change from the one on one encounters from the multiplayer, I would like to see some more urban firefights.
 
What are your ideas? 
And do you agree with mine?

I want a level in a shopping mall or airport, where the multiplayer match is going on WHILE innocent civilians run around and get caught in the crossfire. (Maybe they could total the score based on more enemy kills vs. least civilian kills).

#3 Posted by random_guy23 (256 posts) -

Yeah, but that will probably make the game get banned in several countries. Australia so nearly banned Modern Warfare 2, and here in the UK, they rated it an 18 instead of the usual 15. Still, if rating systems didn't exist, that would be awesome.

@TooWalrus:  Going along with that though, it would be really cool to see something like that, maybe not as intense though.

Bigger Battles , and maybe some sort of stealth game mode..... ok that might be a bad idea.
#6 Posted by baconbits33 (1156 posts) -
@Mikemcn: Yeah I agree, I would like to see more people one one battle and a little more tactical decisions. I also would like to be able to at least get a little frostbite engine involved too, it's overdue.

With all the fun i had smashing windows and blowing up copiers in this game, the frostbite engine would make it the best thing ever devised by this or any other, species.

Am I the only one who thinks that if Volition's Geo-Mod 2.0 engine was incoparated into Call of Duty, it would be awesome? I want destructible environments in Modern Warfare 3!

How about putting in dedicated servers and also balancing out the weapons so that each gun has a feel to it (recoil,range,damage,etc)

I want it so that if you camp in one spot for more than 1 minute, you get killed my a meteorite.

Split-screen system link.  Such a trivial thing to add, but would be so awesome for all the people who either...
A) Live in dorms.
B) Have friends without 360s.
C) Like playing with physical people present.
 
You can't get a good game of Domination or Capture the Flag with only 4 people.  I love that they had leveling in split-screen and the ability to use your online level and classes--split-screen system link is the next logical step.  I hate having to play Halo 3 when I have 6-8 people over wanting to shoot things.

Call of Duty 4 3: Modern Warfare: Moderner Warfare: The Space Race
 
Done.
 
Check please Infinity Ward.

Make it so that it's less like ass (ie. MW2) and more like awesome.

#15 Posted by StarFoxA (5145 posts) -

The story was pretty ridiculous in Modern Warfare 2, but I think that IW could capitalize on that and bring the ridiculousness to the next level (i.e. Contra level of ridiculousness). Missions where you have to jump between missiles flying in space, you get my drift.
 
To bring that into multiplayer, I don't that that Modern Warfare 2 appealed ENOUGH to the casual market. To make it so that it's applicable to all players, no matter the skill level, IW needs to add some sort of "point counter" that automatically gives people points for just being in a game.

#18 Posted by fentonalpha (819 posts) -

More than 2 opposing teams..... 4 groups of 4 / 3 groups of 6 ECT.... 

Killzone 2 style multi role gametype.... Team Deathmatch turns to Sabotage then to Capture the flag in one 20 minute game. 
 
No nukes
 
Recording of matches and editing like Halo 3

Make it not as cheap.

#20 Posted by Phantom_Crash (298 posts) -
  • Non-recycled maps
  • Larger maps and games (24-32 players per map, they tried to make MW2 slightly more tactical with less players.)
  • more useful perks.
  • non peer based multiplayer.
  • Bolt-acion rifles and/or single shot semi-autos that are not in the snipe rifle catagorey.

I really like that idea, would be quite cool, and also might make it more chase orientated, hunting down your target through crowds trying to get a clear shot. (Even though in reality it would be people throwing grenades into the crowds)

An Anti-Wanker button that if 3/4 of players in a ranked game agree, marks a player as a wanker. If they can't loose that title before they leave that lobby they loose half of their XP and all Prestige titles and rewards! 
 
Also some kind of player created game modes in player matches would be cool I guess.

- Choose your character model. I want to look like a terrorist ALL the time. 
- Perks have negative effects and make your character look different if possible. So if I have bling on, the weapon is heavier and I can;t ADS as fast. SOme would be harder to have a negative. Sitrep and Last Stand practically are negatives. 
- The ability to not use perks.
- Make shotguns a primary weapon.
- Let me make both my primary and secondary weapons be pistols.

Either larger teams or smaller maps. The reason I believe camping is everywhere is because each corner of the map is littered with chest high objects for people to hide behind and they're so big with so few enemies, it's too easy to stand still and rack up kills.

More varied killstreak rewards.

Are you fucking kidding? In MW? Have you played with that community, its a bunch of kids and pot heads doing stupid shit on their own with no strategy making the experience worse.  The stuff you mentioned are the things found in battlefield.

The least mobile player gets a big fucking arrow over his head and shows up on mini maps regardless.  Also I would like to see some decent maps.

go back to cod4, get a decent game out of it 
 
keep the sizes of the battles. 
more than 20 players just make the game rubbish

  • There needs to be more going on in and around each map. For example maybe there could be a map on an extremely large aircraft carrier which is moving in itself through the air on a journey.
  • More variety in map sizes. (i.e original game could have 2 small, 6 medium 2 large and 1 very large map). This would balance play out alot more. 
  • EMP's should be able to wipe out all killstreaks waiting to be used by anybody in game and do more damage for a longer period of time to have any real worthy effect. Should also be able to postpone tactical nukes. 
  • Majority vote for which faction you want to be. (Spetsnaz, S.A.S, Marines, OpFor, Task Force 141, Militia)
  • Moore links to the story in maps. (i.e pictures of Zakhaev and Al-Asad, Unusable sniper engraved "MacMillan etc.)
  •  The idea at the very start of this thread about choosing where to land is good.
  • More Emblems and titles

Killstreak Ideas
  (11 Kills) Juggernaut - A helicopter swoops down and a juggernaut slides down a rope then sticks next to you until he is dead. 2 Headshots with a high penetration rating, such as the Barrett 50.cal or Desert Eagle, will kill him instantly.
 
(15 Kills) Apache Airstrike - Apache gunship flies over and fires four missiles which will destroy anything within a 20 metre radius, including sentry guns. Will also destroy all air opponents if there are any.
 
(4 Kills) Care Package - Helicopter drops down a crate which will have: 
i) ANY random killstreak                 ii) Ammunition            iii) A random golden weapon from Modern Warfare games that is not available in Modern Warfare 3. For example: The R700, Skorpion, or G3.
 
(5 Kills) Landmines - A crate is dropped in from a helicopter containing 2 landmines which can be placed anywhere on the map but are obviously better to be used in long grass or in sand and explode if anybody comes within a metre of it. Much like a claymore but a great deal more powerful.
 
(11 Kills) Suicide Bomber - Fighter plane crashes down on the ground on a random place in the map killing anybody within 30 metres.
 
(7 Kills) RC Bomber - A radio controlled glider plane packed with explosives that is controlled by a laptop. Much like the Predator Missile however more powerful.
 
(3 Kills) UAV - UAV Drone hovers overhead and places red dots on the map of where all enemies are situated. Refreshes every 3 seconds.  
 
(15 Kills) LGA [Laser Guided Attack] - Helicopter drops a crate containing a laser pointer which can use to pinpoint where enemies are situated and the helicopter can then take them out.

Here are three great ideas: good balance, polish, and no maps with over a dozen camping spots.

#47 Posted by DizzeeDonkey (2 posts) -
@DizzeeDonkey:  + 
Most importantly for me - The player should be able to effect the map. For example, setting off an EMP would mean that all the lights go off on the map or an airstrike could blow a whole building apart which create more variety from game to game.
