It has been rumored that Sledgehammer, the developer of Modern Warfare 3, is planning to bring back some long-awaited legacy features to the game. One of these features is the classic mini-map, which has been a controversial topic among players. While previous Call of Duty games revealed enemy locations on the mini-map when firing non-suppressed weapons, Modern Warfare 2 changed this by hiding players from the mini-map when they fire their weapons. This decision received mixed reactions from the community, with some criticizing it and others supporting it.
Another feature that may be making a comeback is the Ninja Perk, which allows players to move silently across the map. This Perk was removed in Modern Warfare 2019, much to the disappointment of many players.
Nadeshot, a former professional Call of Duty player and the owner of 100 Thieves, shared his thoughts on these rumors. He expressed excitement over the possibility of these features returning, stating that it shows the developers are listening to the community. Nadeshot also criticized Infinity Ward, the developer of Modern Warfare 2019, for making changes to core mechanics without consulting the players.
While it is still unconfirmed whether these features will be included in Modern Warfare 3, Nadeshot is hopeful and ready to give credit to Sledgehammer for “giving back” what Infinity Ward took away. He believes that bringing back the features loved by the community and incorporating core mechanics from previous Call of Duty games will be the best move for the series.
Overall, the rumored return of these legacy features has restored Nadeshot's faith in the game and has him looking forward to the future of Call of Duty.
