Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 PlayStation open betaAfter the release, he had to make a statement in line with the notifications from the players. The company said that the change made on the minimap in the game will remain constant and players should get used to it.

The minimap is now a bit more difficult to use

After the first week of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Playstation open beta, Infinity Ward has made some important statements due to the feedback from the players. The most popular and important among these is the one about the minimap. The location of enemies shooting at you will no longer be displayed on the minimap. Yes, you saw it right! Now when they shoot at you ‘from where did the bullet come from?’ It doesn’t mean anything to look at the minimap by saying.

The developer took a very strong stance, announcing that he will no longer make any changes to the minimap and will remain that way. The decision, which prevents enemy gun shooting points from being seen on the minimap, caused a serious discussion among Call of Duty players, and they raised their voices on social media about the removal of this new feature. In fact, the minimap had been working normally for years, that is, it showed the enemy’s side when fired, now things got a little messy with this decision.

The information from the minimap was vital because it was crucial in Call of Duty multiplayer mode due to the frenetic nature and fast-paced rhythm of the game. In its statement, Infinity Ward stated that the minimap is designed to show the exact location of the enemies only when the UAV is active. The developer states that “players don’t want to be punished for shooting”. It wants players to rely more on their intelligence rather than focusing on the minimap during gameplay.

Instead of constantly focusing on the minimap to locate gunfire, Infinity Ward recommends following audio cues and focusing more on the game. But this is an action that can only be done by players with high-quality equipment. So if you don’t have a good headphone, surround system or soundbar TV setup, this sound stuttering thing turns into a real torture.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 It launches October 28 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
