Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has revealed a major update to its third-person mode ahead of the game’s release.
The third-person mode was available for players to test out during last month’s beta, and though the feature mostly worked well, some found the constant switching to first-person perspective for aiming to be jarring.
Following player feedback, the third-person mode has now become one of many features to be adjusted by game developer Infinity Ward.
In a post shared on Call Of Duty‘s official Instagram account, the game revealed some top tips for playing Modern Warfare 2, while also announcing that a post-beta update will ensure that only scopes over 4x zoom will activate the first-person perspective.
In the beta, aiming down the sights would automatically switch the view to first-person mode. The only way to avoid the change was to shoot from the hip.
Now, players will be able to aim in the traditional third-person style, with first-person perspective only being activated when aiming with a scope magnification of 4x or more.
In addition to scoping update, the game has also introduced a new feature which will allow players to peek around corners.
Those with digital preorders of the game will receive early access to Modern Warfare 2‘s campaign game mode, starting on October 20.
Additionally, Activision has announced a whole set of campaign rewards that players can earn during the early-access period.
The first official trailer for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was released earlier this month. You can watch it here.
Elsewhere, Activision previously revealed a series of new features for Warzone 2.0, the free-to-play battle royale game mode set for release on November 16. These included a full map reveal, a revamped Gulag experience, new circle mechanics and more.
