​"Emergent gameplay"

With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Infinity Ward will introduce a suite of design and tech-based innovations in Campaign, Cooperative and Multiplayer modes. The innovations will be shared across Modern Warfare II, Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile. This is what the developers call “emergent gameplay”.

​Water: Swimming and aquatic combat

Modern Warfare II will feature new, water-based combat where every operator enters the battlefield with some basic swimming training. The action will take place “above, on, and in water”. The water in the game “can be clean, murky, polluted, or have debris floating and bobbing on the surface. Vehicles can be driven into or on top of the water, leaving a wake”, said the developers.

​Mantle and Ledge Hang movements

While Modern Warfare (2019) introduced new movement options like Tactical Sprint and Mounting, its successor will add additional traversal mechanics, like sliding and diving to the floor and hanging from the ledge. The Ledge Hang is a “natural progression from a Climb or Mantle, this allows you to peek from a Mantle and look around.”

​Vehicle-related features

A few of the vehicle-based features include: "Leaning out of vehicle windows (and shooting, both for the driver and passengers), mantling onto a vehicle roof, destroying vehicle sections, blowing out tires, slowing or incapacitating a vehicle and having the ability to employ multiple ground, air, and water vehicles, depending on the game mode and map."

​New vehicles

You can drive, pilot, and ride on in new vehicles in both Modern Warfare II and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0. Nine are land-based, ranging from a Hatchback car to a Heavy Tank. These include All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs), new Utility Terrain Vehicles (UTVs), Tactical Vehicles (TAC-Vs), SUVs (including a special electric one) and old ones like the Cargo Truck. The rest comprise two tanks and an Armored Personnel Carrier (APC).

​Perks

The game adds Perk Packages which consists of four Perks — two bases, plus two more known as a “Bonus” and “Ultimate.” All are earned during a Multiplayer match. Perks can be unlocked faster with more kills, assists, and better objective and tactical plays.

​Enhancements come to Gunsmith

The game will add new enhancements to the Gunsmith weapon customisation system, the biggest one being the Weapons Platform. First, rank up to get every base Weapons Platform. The first weapon unlocked on a Platform is known by its Receiver, which is essentially core attachment. Unlock more Receivers to access additional weapons within a Platform.

​Weapon attachments

You can improve upon your weapon with two different “pools” of attachments: Weapons Platform Attachments and Universal Attachments.Weapons Platform Attachments are attachments usable only within the Weapons Platform like barrels, magazines, stocks and rear grips while the Universal Attachments are attachments usable across all Weapons Platforms like muzzles, under barrels, ammunition, lasers, and optics.
