ODiLLA added a topic in Call of Duty SeriesMW3 FAQHere is a list of FAQ concerning MW3. Bear in mind that a lot of details haven't been released yet, so the answers to these questions are based on speculation.
Will OMA be featured in MW3?
It is doubtful that One Man Army will return in MW3. If it does, it definitely won't operate the same way as it did in MW2. In MW2, OMA could be used to constantly refill Grenade Launchers. This meant that players could bombard the enemy team with an infinite number of explosive rounds. A few days ago, FourZeroTwo announced on Twitter that the feedback from the community regarding OMA was "loud and clear". i.e. Infinity Ward are well aware that people hated OMA in MW2.
Who is FourZeroTwo?
FourZeroTwo is the alias of Robert Bowling. Bowling is the creative strategist / community manager for Infinity Ward, the makers of COD 2, COD 4 and MW2. Infinity Ward are currently working on MW3 in conjunction with Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games.
Will Second Chance be in MW3?
It is doubtful that Second Chance will appear in MW3, although its less-ugly cousin "Last Stand" could make a reappearance from MW2. FourZeroTwo said on Twitter that he personally disliked Second Chance and that the community's reaction to it had been loud and clear.
Will Grenade Launchers be featured in MW3?
If grenade launchers return in MW3, it is doubtful that they will be as powerful as the "noobtubes" in MW2. Screenshots from the MW3 leak do show the m320 grenade launcher. However, this grenade launcher might not feature in the multiplayer.
Will Commando be in MW3?
It is doubtful that Commando will return in MW3. Commando was one of the four features that FourZeroTwo talked about when he said that the community's feedback had been loud and clear. i.e. Infinity Ward got the message that people hated Commando. This is because Commando gives players the ability knife enemy players who are over a mile away.
Who is making MW3?
Three companies are currently working on MW3. These are:
After senior Infinity Ward employees were dismissed in March 2010, half of the development team followed suite. This led many to believe that Infinity Ward would not be working on MW3. However, it has since been revealed that Infinity Ward will in fact be helped by two other companies. According to sources quoted by the LA Times, Sledgehammer Games will be assisting with the Single Player campaign and Raven Software will be assisting with the multiplayer.
Will the MW3 multiplayer cost money to play?
Rumors that Call of Duty would bring in a subscription service for its multiplayer mode existed before Black Ops was released. Now these rumors have resurfaced again after the announcement of Modern Warfare 3. On Twitter, FourZeroTwo responded to these rumors:
Absolutely not. We have always said we would not have Pay to Play multiplayer in our games.
That's not to say that newer features such as COD Elite won't be a subscription based service.
Will MW3 be released on the Wii?
A few weeks ago, Robert Bowling said on Twitter that there has been no announcement of MW3 being released on the Wii.

ODiLLA added a topic in Call of Duty SeriesMW3 MapsA few weeks ago, Kotaku published a major leak concerning MW3. The leak included screenshots of MW3 weapons, maps and information about the upcoming single player campaign.
The maps were listed as:
Alps (mountainous snow map?)
Brooklyn (Brooklyn is a location in New York)
Coast (seaside map?)
Dome (a football stadium maybe?)
Exchange (financial sector? market place?
Hardhat (maybe this will be a construction site?)
Interchange (subway? transportation?)
Lambeth (Lambeth is a location in London)
Meteora (Greek for "suspended in the air" / "suspended rocks")
Mogadishu (Mogadishu is the largest city in Somalia)
Paris (Capital city of France)
Plaza 2 (Will this be a hotel map?)
Seatown (another seaside map?)
Underground (sewers? A screenshot of a sewer was shown in the initial MW3 leak)
Screenshots of MW3 Maps
Could this be a screenshot of the Underground map in MW3? It would make sense. Although this could be a single player mission or a spec op mission.
Here is a screenshot of the Carbon map in MW3. Interesting to note that it is shown in both day and night. Could this mean that the day/night of the maps in MW3 will change according to the time of the player?
Here are another two screenshots of the Carbon map. One of the pictures looks like "map art".
This page will be modified as more information about the MW3 maps is released. Until now, we can only speculate on what the maps will look like.

ODiLLA added a topic in Call of Duty SeriesMW3 WeaponsA list of weapons that will be in the upcoming MW3 game. This page will be updated as new information is released. Bear in mind that the weapons / guns shown on this page could be removed from the MW3 multiplayer before the game is released.
Scorpian / Skorpian SMG
The Skorpian SMG featured in COD 4 and Call of Duty Black Ops. Judging from the screenshot leaks, the gun will be making a return in MW3.
The MP5 SMG appeared in COD 4 and looks set to return in Modern Warfare 3. The MP5K appeared in Modern Warfare 2. For MW3, it seems as if the MP5 has a new look.
SCAR-L Assault Rifle
The SCAR-L looks set to make an appearance. In MW2, the SCAR-H was introduced. H stands for Heavy and L stands for Light. The SCAR-L (i.e. the SCAR LIGHT) certainly looks less bulky than the SCAR-H that we seen in the previous Modern Warfare game.
MP412 Russian Pistol
This is a double action .357 magnum revolver. Designed by the same company that designed the Makarov pistol seen in Black Ops.
M14 EBR Assault Rifle
The M14 Enhanced Battle Rifle looks as if it will be included in Modern Warfare 3. The United States Navy Mark 14 Enhanced Battle Rifle is a variant of the M14, which was present in Call of Duty Black Ops. The M14EBR featured in MW2 as a sniper rifle.
Remington Semi-Automatic Sniper System (RSASS)
The Remington Semi-Automatic Sniper System (RSASS) was one of the sniper rifles shown in the leaked MW3 screenshots.
Model 1887 Shotgun
It's back baby! The notorious shotgun, which first made its appearance in MW3, looks as if it will be returning for MW3. After Modern Warfare 2 was released, the 1887 shotgun caused a stir amongst ardent Call of Duty fans because of its unrealistic range.
Remington ACR Assault Rifle
The ACR's first appearance was in MW2. Although it wasn't as powerful as other Assault Rifles, it had almost no recoil.
Walter P99 Pistol
One of the newer additions to MW3 is the P99. This is a semi-automatic pistol that was developed in Germany.
The AK47 doesn't need an introduction, as it has been present in COD 4, Black Ops and MW2. In MW3, it looks as if the AK47 will have a slick black default texture.
The Barrett 50 Cal Sniper Rifle
The Barrett M82, aka The Barrett 50 Cal will be returning in MW3. You may remember the 50 Cal from COD 4 and MW2.
It looks as if the 12-gauge Striker Shotgun will be returning in Modern Warfare 3. This was labelled "the new striker" in the leaked screenshots.
m320 Grenade Launcher
I'm guessing that grenade launchers won't be removed from the Call of Duty series anytime soon. This m320, which will feature in MW3, was developed by the US Army.
It looks as if the AA12 Shotgun is another weapon that will be returning in MW3. Introduced in MW2, this Shotgun packed a powerful punch up-close as it was automatic.
As you can see, it looks slightly different in MW3 than how it did in Modern Warfare 2.
The Kel tec KSG looks as if it will be introduced in MW3. The KSG is a bullpup 12 gauge pump action shotgun that was developed in the US.
G36 Assault Rifle
The G36C was an Assault Rifle in COD 4. The G36 will be included in MW3. This Assault Rifle was developed by Heckler & Koch in the early 1990s.
FMG Machine Pistol
The Magpul FMG (FMG-9) is a folding SMG that will feature in Modern Warfare 3. This gun was designed for concealment and covert use. It is an extremely lightweight weapon because of the polymer material that it is made out of.
After the MW3 gameplay trailer was released, a number of military experts broke it down and noted down what weapons had shown up. The weapons that were shown in the trailer were:
Famas (MW2 style)
M4A1 Assault Rifle
Sig Sauer P226 pistol
M1911 model .45 caliber pistol
More guns will be added to this page as new information about MW3 is released.

ODiLLA added a topic in Call of Duty SeriesMW3 Spec Ops gameplay footage - Remington ACRRobert Bowling, the Creative Strategist for Infinity Ward, decided to treat his Twitter followers today by posting a picture of MW3 Spec Ops. When asked what the gun shown in the picture was, Bowling replied that it was the Remington ACR. In case you didn't already know, the Remington ACR was featured in the MW3 gun leak a while back.
As you can see, the ACR is visible in the screenshot above. According to Bowling, the guy with the yellow helmet is a Juggernaut. A Juggernaut will be a Spec Ops enemy that will require more damage to kill.

ODiLLA added a topic in Call of Duty SeriesMW3 Spec Ops details releasedIt has been revealed that Spec Ops on MW3 will have its very own matchmaking system and that it will also include a progressive ranking system.
One interesting part of Spec Ops will be the new Survival Mode, which will force the player to fight off and defend against waves of different kinds of enemies. A few of these enemies have already been touched-on by Infinity Ward's Creative Strategist, Robert Bowling. The player will have to fend against regular enemies, dogs, Juggernauts (in case you didn't already know, a Juggernaut is a regular enemy with added health) and Suicide Bombers. While speaking about the new Spec Ops mode, Bowling said that each enemy will have to be fought off using a different strategy.

ODiLLA added a topic in Call of Duty SeriesThere will be no Stopping Power in MW3Speaking in response to an alleged multiplayer leak on the popular gaming website Kotaku, Infinity Ward's Creative Strategist Robert Bowling stated that Stopping Power will not be returning in Modern Warfare 3. Bowling also dispelled rumors about "Team Perks" appearing in MW3:
There is no Stopping Power period. We also have no such thing as 'team perks'. All other #MW3 MP details remain undisclosed.
When asked whether the lack of Stopping Power would prevent MW3 from having a fast-paced multiplayer, Bowling insinuated that base damage of weapons will be made higher than before in order to compensate for the lack of Stopping Power:
Stopping power is not what makes Modern Warfare fast paced, weapon damage does that. It can be fast without a single perk.

ODiLLA added a topic in Call of Duty SeriesWill quickscoping return in MW3?Speaking during an IAMA on the popular social news website Reddit, Infinity Ward's Creative Strategist made it clear that it is currently possible to quickscope in the MW3 multiplayer. When asked if quickscoping would make a reappearance, Bowling said:
Currently, you can still quick scope in Modern Warfare 3. Keep in mind though, multiplayer is always changing at this stage (new perks, new balancing, new everything all the time based on feedback), however our philosophy on that hasn't changed since MW2.
I think the most interesting aspect of this answer is that he made it clear that IW's opinion/philosophy on quickscoping hasn't changed since MW2. In case you didn't already know, Bowling has often stated on Twitter that he believes quickscoping takes skill.

ODiLLA added a topic in Call of Duty SeriesSecond Chance will not be featured in MW3Second Chance earned itself a bad rep in Black Ops. The perk allowed players to be revived after they had received the damage needed to die. This frustrated many players, as the perk would often slow down the game and make it difficult to fight off multiple enemies. Speaking during his questions and answers thread on Reddit.com, Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling made it clear that Second Chance would not feature in MW3. During the AMA (Ask Me Anything) thread, one Reddit user asked:
What perks are you dropping from previous games? OMA, Commando, Second Chance?
Bowling's reply was straight-forward:
All of the above. None of those are perks in Modern Warfare 3.

Speaking on Twitter, FourZeroTwo said that those who attend COD XP will get a chance to play the Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer for the first time.
