Infinity Ward Not Making Call of Duty 5?


While everyone seems to be oohing and aahing at the upcoming Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, it seems that Infinity Ward may not be developing Call of Duty 5. Don’t fret just yet though, as they’ll most likely be back for CoD6. Awhile back, publisher Activision decided they wanted to have a new Call of Duty game out every year, which didn’t leave enough time for Infinity Ward to create the games they wanted to. So a compromise was made after CoD2: Infinity Ward would get two years to make another title, and the franchise would be handled by developer Treyarch in the interim. This explains why CoD3 may have seemed quite a bit different from CoD2. It hasn’t been confirmed, but it seems that this deal may carry over into the next game as well. During that time though, Infinity Ward will also be doling out new downloadable content (maps, weapons, perks, etc.) for CoD4.

This sounds like a pretty good compromise to me, since it keeps both the publisher and the developers happy. I figure a great Call of Duty game every two years is better than a so-so one every year.

i’d rather infinity ward do all future COD’s, just because they did a better COD game.
i liked COD3, just that COD2 was all round more entertaining and more of a graphic treat, for me anyway.


On November 13, 2007 at 9:25 pm

Treyarch sucks. i hope they dont ruin the series, they sucked in CoD3 and IW did great on CoD4.

On November 16, 2007 at 3:54 pm

I absolutely HATED Call of Duty 4. What a let down! TREYARCH sucks! I played CoD2 all the way until CoD4 came out because CoD3 was absolutely and utterly horrible.

b madz

On November 16, 2007 at 3:55 pm

Shoot, I meant CoD3. I hated CoD3. I love CoD4.


On November 18, 2007 at 4:42 pm

I liked the multiplayer for COD3. So I like this alot. COD4 is awesome.


On November 19, 2007 at 6:44 am

how can ya say treyarch are crap they brought us the vehicles and the split screen online cod 4 is geat online but such a let down 4 me cus i cant split screen or get in vehicles anymore theyve downgraded u think theyd leave all that stuff in and add more.still im addicted to all of em lol


On November 22, 2007 at 12:21 pm

I love Infinity Ward, they have been making excellent games for the Call of Duty series. It makes sense to alternate because, it puts off pressure on Infinity Ward, which allows them to make such successful and entertaining games. Call of Duty 4 is awesome, a lot of time was put into it to make the single-player experience decent, as well as the multiplayer. At the rate this series is going, it will be around for many years.


On November 22, 2007 at 1:15 pm

call of duty 4 blows, im still addicted to call of duty 3, eder dam baby rocks online, call of duty 5 better go back lookin like call of duty 3, keep it the same set up, call of duty 4 is confusing,night vison is useless on that game , no medics wtf, all maps look the same. its just a big let down, whata waste of money, I HATE CALL OF TY 4


On November 22, 2007 at 3:19 pm

This sucks pretty bad. COD3 was a pretty poor COD game but if this gives IW the freedom to give us another game as good as COD4 then I’m all for it.
It kinda hurts the series as a whole but hey what else would you expect from a huge croperation like Activision. Seriously though COD4 is amazing well done IW.

kid u r u moron. u sound like a ing idiot because everyone in the room is saying cod 3 sucks and u say its good.first of all cod 3 sucked terribly. the only people who liked o played that game was people who sucked at call od dut 2 because cod 2 took way more skill and cod 3 was all camping and there was no kill cam to see where they were camping so u could go get them.and cod4 is ausome i dont know how its confusing… maybe u suck at it? and nobopdy cares for medics and for that kid Dan 4 people above me… noone wants vehicles anymore either cus all it did was ruin the games when people got in the vehicles they just ran people over like gits it took no skill.

I agree with Michael Curatolo kid COD 4 kicks COD 3s ass :lol:

No more games like COD3 because of the fact that you can glitch in order to win a match which to me is really also I hope the COD franchise make more and better games like COD2&4 :wink:


On November 28, 2007 at 3:11 am

I despise COD 4.
COD and COD(UO) were great but something about COD4 makes me sick.
Maybe it’s all the aimbotters and wallhackers…..speedhacks and so on and so forth that has me turned off about this game. This was the very last COD I’ll ever spend hard earned money on.
A 4 hour campaign and multiplayer that is nothing more than mindless run and gun
fun for hackers and cheaters…no thanks.
Not to mention the immature “crude and nasty” adolescent attitudes of the players. My copy is uninstalled. I’ll chalk it up to a “mistake”, throw it away and forget COD ever existed.


On November 28, 2007 at 8:43 pm

Call of Duty 3 wasn’t a terrible game, its fun. Of course not as fun as Call of Duty 4, but still fun. Maybe its cuz it was my first xbox game, I don’t know. It did add a few things like the sprinting to the series, which is good, but at the same, didn’t include other things like kill cam.

Even though I now own CoD4, I still go back and play CoD3 sometimes. At least CoD3 isn’t as bad as Hour of Victory, man that sucked!


On November 29, 2007 at 4:13 am

I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why people think Call of Duty 4 is ground breaking. You guys just blow my mind. That game has one of the most thoughtless unlocking systems I think I’ve ever seen in an online game. People who are new to it will get absolutely slaughtered by higher level players with perks like Martyrdom and 3x Grenades. I just about threw the game in the garbage after my first few matches. I like to call it Call of Duty 4: Dodge the Grenade. It takes zero skill to run around whipping grenades in every direction hoping someone will be in the area when it goes off, and yet, it happens far too often, thanks the the fact that the levels are so damn small. And for a game that’s supposed to be “modern” and “realistic”, what the is Martyrdom anyway? How the can a man set off a grenade after he is already dead? Sniping is this game is just like any other, not that much skill involved, except it’s pretty pointless considering the levels are again, ridiculously small. I notice almost no difference in gameplay compared to Call of Duty 2, besides the fact that the playing grounds were a lot more even and straight forward in 2, and the levels were far better thought out. Call of Duty 3, while not the most advanced, had well thought-out levels, and addicting gameplay that was actually fun. Infinity Ward, and their half-assed attempt at making an enjoyable game. Battlefield 2 did everything Call of Duty: 4 does, and way more…There is nothing ground breaking about Infinity Ward’s latest game whatsoever, and if you ask me, I say they’ve gone backwards. Were they just too half-assed to actually put vehicles in the game? They didn’t even change some of the fonts and icons from Call of Duty: 2…Total bull. If you haven’t bought 4 yet, and you like 3 because it’s a fun, straightforward shooter that won’t make you want to whip your controller across the room every time you play it, do not waste your time and money on 4.


On November 29, 2007 at 5:14 pm

dude!? what is up with u and swearing. anyway i like all CoD games because they are awesome 3rd and 4th i mainly liked especially the multipleyers they rocked altho i do kinda miss vehicles and medics its still very cool :mrgreen:


On November 29, 2007 at 6:08 pm

Stop whining Silva86, you just can’t play COD 4 very well, and are blaming the game for it instead of yourself. There is no reason to blame the game, you are making your character’s decision, not the game. The game just shows the effect of your decision.

I don’t care if you hate COD 4, it is just your opinion. WHY DO FONTS AND LOGOS MATTER! I just read them and notice them, I don’t care about the way they look. Blaming the game for your problems is wrong, and like I said before, your actions in game determines what will happen, and that is that. You can kill the enemy in the game no matter what rank they are. They aren’t unstoppable with their unlocks.

Stop the lame excuses. You clearly lost.


On November 30, 2007 at 8:12 am

i didnt find it impossible to kill higher ranks than me in CoD 4 online i agree with ASan44 on that one


On December 2, 2007 at 6:35 pm

wow, i cant believe it, COD 4 is like the best game of 2007, and some people here think its crap, all it needs is co-op campaign and online co-op to be absolutely perfect, awesome job IW, keep it up, 9.8/10 in my books!

lets just hope treyarch dont mess up COD 5 too much eh….


On December 2, 2007 at 9:05 pm

CoD3 wasnt that bad in Multiplayer, but it was lacking in SP. If they want to make a good online game, Treyarch needs to get better servers for their game. For god sakes, it is the only online game they have and they still cant keep multiple servers. It took forever to find a game.


On December 2, 2007 at 11:45 pm

I just got COD4 today, but i have vista and it’s not starting, but i love the other ones! i’m just glad WWII is finally over!


On December 3, 2007 at 1:54 am

Hmm…i still dun hav de chance 2 play cd game available in M’sia.What a bummer!And now with COD4?!Oh my god!I need 2 change my pc video card…heard that COD4 needs a very high requirements….


On December 3, 2007 at 8:05 pm


All the COD series are excellent,and great value.Have no problems at all completeing levels.I think it would be great if COD took us back to World War One.Fighting in the trenches,using gas masks,driving the old tanks and flying the old planes,and bayoneting the enemy.What do you guys think.Sound good,or a we all over world war stuff and time to move on etc. :eek:


On December 4, 2007 at 4:33 pm

On December 6, 2007 at 8:26 pm

ASan44, you completely missed my point. First of all, I don’t suck at the game. I’m on my third prestige mode with a 1.36 kill to death ratio (Xbox360, I’d probably do better with a mouse and keyboard), and still play it even now. Take the time to read my post again…I said the game is not ground breaking, meaning it does not offer anything that hasn’t been done before. Clever marketing and a lot of hype have gotten the game to it’s high profile status and popularity more than ‘amazing’ gameplay.

And my point about how they used some the same fonts, icons, and even sounds from COD2 (All grenade sounds, as well as the sound your player makes when he gets shot, etc.) was backing up my statement about how it’s nothing new. No, it doesn’t bother me either, but when you sit down and play the 2 games back to back, you realize that it really wouldn’t have taken much to make COD4.


On December 7, 2007 at 2:42 pm

OK, Call of Duty 4 has pretty good gameplay mainly because of the graphics and effects. The movements, shadowing, environments, and other animations do take time. But since they use a graphics engine that is already prewritten, it takes slightly less time to make a game, mainly because codes are written for them.

When comparing this game to the Battlefield 2 series, this game is way better. The weapon skins and maps are just way better than in Battlefield 2. Only thing that makes Battlefield 2 better than COD 4 is with vehicles. But making a game with COD 4 graphics, and BF2 military vehicle/plane/helicopter fights would truly be a very successful and ground breaking game.

I see your point Silva86, there were several attempts to make games like COD 4, just most of them were never really successful. I personnally think that OCD 4 was successful, mainly because it is a part of a high ranked and popular franchise. WW1 or Civil War action could be something cool to play, because there are not really any games that are based on those famous events, as long as gameplay / graphics are good. WW2 is just completely overused and I say is finished. But it still is fun to play COD 2 once in a while. I still do, on multiplayer on my PC.


On December 7, 2007 at 2:49 pm

COD 5, hopefully that’ll be good. COD 3 was just……OK. Treyarch needs to improve campaigns and the multiplayer experience. Vehicles were fun to drive in the game, just I couldn’t get on and play half the time. Since Treyarch, most likely, will make COD 5, they have the chance to make an actual decent Call of Duty game. If they do another Modern Combat game, like COD 4, maybe they’ll put vehicles in, but I don’t know, there is limited Information about this elsewhere.


On December 9, 2007 at 6:53 am

I liked very much CoD2… and not so much CoD3.
I really would like to see a CoD5 or CoD6 similar to CoD2.
I do prefer WW2 and I would rather prefer a German campaign across Europe (such as France, USSR, Italy and so on…), since I do believe that a game like that would be a success.
Come on! Everyone wished to play as a German once at least! :mrgreen:

On December 9, 2007 at 9:43 am


personally, i think a WW1 COD could be a great idea, but im not so sure it would be that successful, considering its a backwards jump in terms of battlefield technology of the day, and considering call of duty started of as a WW2 game that has only just entered into the modern ‘theatre’.

might still be good though, the concept definitly appeals to me.


this idea i like, but only as an extra ‘side’ campaign, like command and conquer, with the two diffrent campaign’s for GDI and nod.


On December 9, 2007 at 11:39 am

You guys are totally overreacting.

Call of duty 1, 2 and 4 are exeptionally good games. IW (Infinety Ward) were some of the first (if not the first) to make you able to ADS (Aim down the Sights). Actually IW got some of the developers of MOHAA (Medal of Honor: Allied Assault) to work for them. I never played Call of duty 3, because I don’t like shooters on platforms. I only like mices and keyboards.

Now, for all who complain about Call of Duty 4 I have one thing to say: Shut Up. Call of duty 4 is a very good game: Graphics are top, Sounds top, the plot is good. We even have vehicles awaible: Helicopters and Airplanes. Then you might think or flame me with: You can’t controll them. And you are right. The vehicles cannot be used by players, which makes it more fair, because team 1 will not be pinned down by 3 Team2 tanks owning the battlefield.

People rate CoD4 10/10 stars, and the gaming magazine I read had only one – about the game: Too agressive enemies sometimes.

So… before flaming me read my reply through again

I’m certain COD5 will be fine.

On December 9, 2007 at 6:51 pm

that’d just be weird to go from modern and then back to WWII. If their going to do that then they may as well do korea and vietnam as well. I think they need to get some canadians in the game but i’m biased.

On December 9, 2007 at 8:10 pm

OK Everyone. I know people are dumb and won’t do it, but how about when CoD 5 comes out we all just NOT buy it. I mean, people will say it then just go like “Let’s get it” and then Treyarch might make a 7.

Or just rent it, but I can already tell this will be bad…

On December 9, 2007 at 11:18 pm

If Call of Duty went back to WWII, it would be cool if it was in Japan. Or if they stayed modern, it would be nice to have a siberian-based one.


On December 10, 2007 at 4:03 am

it sucks either way, in my oppinion. wont be getting COD 5 or any more. COD 4 is terrible, dont critize me any one who disagrees, you have your oppinion too. COD 4 is good for people who like it, Ya its a good game, but not for me.

Better games : Rainbow Six vegas, Halo 3, Gears of War, GRAW 1&2, and cannot wait for more tom clancey games, they are always better. cannot wait for Rainbow Six vegas 2 and End War.


On December 11, 2007 at 5:22 am

all of the IW fanboys are hilarious.
the net code on cod4 is house, treyarch did a much better job in that department.

On December 12, 2007 at 10:29 am


Well, I think not =) If(!) IW gets to make CoD5, then he will surely be there (xD)… He has been following the game since, well, the first game


On December 13, 2007 at 1:26 pm

I think they set it up for a sequel. Zakiev and the other bad guys may be dead, but it doesn’t mean that the conflict is over……..well you never know. Capt Price most likely will be in the 5th installment, whoever makes it. Capt Price died in the original and then you see him alive in COD 2, and now COD 4. IW only has him in their games. IW’s Call of Duty games are usually the best. I am not saying that Treyach (however it is spelled) is bad, just I kind of like the old characters.


On December 13, 2007 at 3:01 pm

There is a rumor on the internet that COD 5 will be WW2 again. I don’t know anymore info about it, but it supposedy coming out Fall 2008.

call of duty 4 is a very good game with all the weapons and all that, cod3 was stiil good but the campaign gets boring after u complete it, and if they bring cod5 bk to WW2 then its just a stupid idea because i want to see wat would happen after the end of cod4.

really treyarch have gone too far this time just stick with modern warfare!!!! or vietnam or gulf war or fight in afganistan!!!! that would be very cool!


On December 22, 2007 at 6:16 am

Every game Treyarch makes sucks donkey nuts. Dont buy cod5 , wait for cod6.


On December 22, 2007 at 6:17 am

Also to Shutup!!! That was 6 words you en moron.


On December 23, 2007 at 1:07 am

Fighting the Soviets would be fun too, but they should keep the storylne going from where is left off in cod4.


On December 24, 2007 at 2:47 pm

kk for all you ppl luvn Cod4..Which isnt a bad game I mean you got the Cool guns perks, nice graphs, airstrikes, Helicopters, and some other cool stuff..But for me and alot of all the other ppl that want Skill in a Game..COD2 hands down..Why? well bcz Everything in Cod2 took skill the guns Nades everything and it was on a More even playing field…Yea its not all fancy like Cod4..but Cod4 you pick up any gun and I mean any basically..and u aim ur little red sight its on them Hold the trigger and ur dead..or p90 and autos who even needs to aim? no1..Ive been in matchs where Ppl that Just PLAIN suck..Get p90s run around and do better then ppl actually trying..Cod2 Karr took skill Autos Took sooo much skill no..besides Ppsh but thats a diff story lol and 4 every1 says m1 doesnt ur dead wrong lol…That wasnt a gun any1 could pick up and use at 1st with the aim…My Point is Cod2 u had the ppl who stood out and the ppl who didnt bcz Cod2 was based on Experience and skill…Cod4 Theres no Skill I mean really…Red dot sight autos all that u aim u hold trigger all the same no1 standsout some1 who goes 25-1 next game could go 10-25…Cod2 who ever was the best remained the best..Thats y im hoping cod5 they bring back WWII and the skill that was in the game… Plz post on what ive said if uve played both then u will agree unless ur the type to run around with an auto and luv that ur accomplishing nothing not getting better or using skill…oo and FYI Im good at COD4 dont wanna hear U just suck at COD4 bcz really if u can learn to aim and hold trigger..and use objects to not get killed ur good on that game.


On December 25, 2007 at 1:06 am

IMO i wouldn’t mind Treyarch making COD5 xD

COD3 had your character with its own squad that stayed with you through the whole game…i kinda like that :D


On December 30, 2007 at 11:18 pm

i liked COD 3 and 4 but Cod 4 the parts were way too short compared to COD 3, but the graphics in CoD 4 were awsome


On December 30, 2007 at 11:20 pm

it would be awsome if Infinity Ward and Treyarch combined to make Call Of Duty 5


On December 31, 2007 at 6:57 am

Response to Genuine_733′s post:

Everyone has their own oppinions about weapons, but remember: Call of duty 4 isn’t World War 2 anymore. The weapons improve, and so does the equipment.

You say that weapons in CoD2 required skill. Maybe I just was unlucky with servers or were skilled at the use of the weapons, but I think they were very easy to use, required almost no skill to aim and kill with… And whole servers where you owned if you got the ppsh. Just like what you say about p90…

To be good in Call of duty 4 (on good servers) is actually not just run and gun… you need to use all avaible equipments and cover to manage a 25/1 K/D.

In the last part of your post, you actually say, that if people like CoD4, then they are unskilled noobs. You get better with CoD4, and the experience is much better than that of CoD2.! Plus you actually get to customise your weapon totally (which I for one like).


On December 31, 2007 at 9:26 am

cod 3 wasnt as good as 2 and 4 but it was way better then alot fps,maybe treyarch should throw a (optional)cover system

When i Played COD 3 i was really confused that it wasnt on PC then i was quite disapointed at the game itself after playing it, i was really confused and then realised why it sucked…TREYARCH
i played the first 2 CoD games and was disapointed by the 3rd one
I was so pleased when CoD 4 came out because i made sure it was made by infinity ward

Treyarch arent bad…but…it just wasnt the same…i ended up getting frustrated…i dont know why..i just didnt like CoD 3…never finished it…never really liked it…and i think Treyarch are the root of the problem…they just created another lame world war 2(or 1) game with repetetive levels that got boring….infinity ward raise the bar each time they make a CoD and have gotten great reviews each time…

cant wait for CoD 6…in the mean time i will try CoD 5…but i doubt it will be good

If they make Call of Duty 5, they should make it in the future. It should be like World War 3 in 2020 or something.

On January 3, 2008 at 3:42 am

it may not be ground breaking,campaign may be to short,missions may be to short and gameplay wise not much dif to cod2 but just take it for what it excellent fps and one of the best this year

I’m just replying to one aspect of your post because I did not know what the HELL you were talking about.

If you get 25-1 on one round and 10-25 on the next, that only means the game is actually balanced so all the ones who play 24/7 don’t start going crazy bragging about how “skilled” they are.


On January 9, 2008 at 8:18 am

25-1 in Call of Duty 4? Let me guess, 3x frag grenades, all of which were whipped in random directions, a p-90 with a red dot sight, using juggernaut and last stand, and sitting in a corner, underneath a set of stairs, for 10 minutes.

Anyway, I think it would be a great idea if Treyarch made it set in WW1. How cool would it be to have a huge (and I mean HUGE) open map with trenches and all, with at least 30 players, just going nuts with nothing but an old school rifle and bayonet? No perks, no 6000 grenades flying in every direction, just straight up old school hardcore warfare, back and forth, with the amazing graphics and sound that people have come to expect from the COD series. Maybe even throw in some of the earliest examples of armored vehicles and fighter planes, like the Albatros and the British S.E 5. Now THAT would be a good game.

No, I was just using his example. :mrgreen: I’m just saying it’d be a issue of balance if the scores would be that fluctuating.

What you’re saying is on the scale of Crysis or Battlefield 2. O.o That’d be awesome, but they’d have to emphasize a HUGE amount on what you do when you’re in the trench. Like being able to peek over the corner to see enemies (you can’t shoot) but not get shot, be able to expand your own trench… You know what, if a game like that exists, I would definately buy it.

On January 11, 2008 at 7:47 pm

It’s amazing you can even spell your own name. And I’m willing to bet the only reason you like CoD4 is because it’s a camper’s dream. Not everyone is like you either. I for one enjoy playing CoD3 online much more than 4, because it’s more realistic, and the maps are a lot bigger (in other words, camping is futile). On the other hand, I’ll admit CoD4 Single Player blows Cod3′s clean out of the water…I’m hoping Treyarch puts in a little more effort for 5.

Oh, and according to their website, they are searching for level designers who “Enjoy World War 2 shooters”. This is probably the strongest evidence as to what the time period will be. I’d be happy with another WW2 Shooter, though I still think WW1 would have been a better choice.


On January 12, 2008 at 6:18 pm

COD4 is the best shooting game of all time…hope 5 will be around the same or even better would be fantastic

:shock: omg i play call od duty 4 but i did not know about call of duty 5 can some one tell me about it. whet is it like but why infantry ward does not want to continu with it


On January 15, 2008 at 4:24 pm

Ok, here’s how it works. Treyarch and Infinity Ward seem to have some kind of deal. While one is working on one, the other releases one. So basically, Treyarch is most likely working on COD5, while Infinity Ward is laying the ground work for their next installment. Expect to see COD 6 from Infinity Ward, if it even is developed. The Call of Duty series is a big moneymaker, so I doubt that they will end it.
Alot of people mostly pefer Infinity Ward over Treyarch, and I also think so too. There are limited details about Call of Duty 5 on the internet so far, but there are rumors about it being WW2. I personally think WW1 would be awesome to play for once. With all the trench fighting and everything, it would be cool to play. But maybe Treyarch will make a decent game for once, and maybe improve their reputation, since their Call of Duty games don’t get the best reviews.


On January 15, 2008 at 8:41 pm

I agree with most….Cod4 and Cod2 Are a MILLION times better than CoD3.

in IW dominated COD4…it was THE best game i hav EVER played..the graphics, gameplay, sounds, the fact that u can shoot through walls was THE BEST.. if u want a ing great game..get COD4 :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

I Mattmiester I

On January 21, 2008 at 3:03 pm

I tell u wot it betta not be in f***in WW2 again that is seriously worn out. I want them to make a continuation of the modern warfare franchise because this gives a whole new twist to the CoD games. If they made a WW2 game again, i for one, would certainly not be buying it. Ill stick with CoD 4 because it is a great game.

your mother always

On January 21, 2008 at 3:17 pm

trench fighting, non-stop would be boring
but places like Gallipoli, etc would be awesome


On January 21, 2008 at 3:20 pm

You know what Infinity ward made a killer cod4 game but seriously LOVE the job that they did with the sniping for cod3/2. Sniping for cod4 licks balls but im still one of the best. Took some time to get the lag and stuff.

Future games should have wind variations for the 50 cal. And they should make a 50cal autamatic kill… Because really 50cal. Where made to dissable cars.


On January 21, 2008 at 3:21 pm

And another thing.
co2 and cod4 have way better maps and less glitches in online then cod3

Cod3 sucked online the first week i had it i was flying under maps and over roof tops.


On January 21, 2008 at 3:32 pm

cod 3 sucks ass online cuz there lots of aimbotters and snipers and stupid campers,call of duty 4 has hackers and they kill u quicker even if u get the first shot and the dont even die.btw cod 4 would have been better if they had stupid vehicles but airstrikes and helicopters are okay but i wish u could drive a helicopter instead of calling it in if u get killed by a helicopter in kill cam it shows the view from the helicopter like the player was driving it.i hate the sabotage gametype cuz to many retards are camping the bomb instead of getting it,domination is the easiest gametype to level up,weird why the mp44 is in the but no germans and its a german weapon so why is it in cod 4 if there are no germans,the m14 isnt a assault rifle its and unscoped m21 cuz it sounds like it and looks like it and sounds like it but holds 20 round clips instead of 10,add an ACOG scope and make it a homemade sniper rifle

To jz – Can people set off live grenades when they die in real life? No. Can people magically increase their total “health” in real life? No. Can people magically make their bullets do more damage in real life? No. Can people magically make their bullets shoot through thicker walls in real life? No. Do people walk around the battlefield with guns painted in childish blue, red, and gold painted guns in real life? No. Thanks for coming out.


On January 21, 2008 at 4:57 pm

Oh and sorry about the sentence structuring there… I’ve got a wicked hangover goin on


On January 21, 2008 at 5:07 pm

By the way, twojays, there are no aimbotters in CoD3. It’s not possible. It is however possible to get very good at aiming for long shots even without a scope, with practice. It’s also possible to use a mouse and keyboard in CoD3. But camping? I’ve logged hundreds, if not thousands of hours in CoD3 and I’ve yet to see someone camp, and then win by doing so. The levels are too big for camping to even be an advantage.


On January 21, 2008 at 6:50 pm

Silva86, I don’t know why you love COD 3 so much. Games have hacks and cheats no matter what platform it is on. Plus, why are you ripping the realism in COD 4. Did you ever hear of someone pulling the pin on the grenade before they die, that is a tactic used by many troops before they die, especially terrorists. I don’t know “making a bullet shoot through thicker walls” is a good statement either, that is just a generalization. In COD 3 you can’t do that, which makes it unrealistic. What is with the statement, “magically increasing your total health in real life”. You are basically ripping COD 3 and COD 4 because they both don’t have a health bar (as well as COD 2). Stop making up lame excuses to make a point.


On January 22, 2008 at 10:44 pm

To Silva:

I’m not trying to start a fight, but I found one thing that isn’t true. >..


On January 22, 2008 at 10:46 pm

Oh, awkward… The post didn’t get on.
You CAN (not magically) increase the damage a bullet does by simply increasing the caliber of the bullet. In effect, you can penetrate thicker walls. Compare something like a 9 mm shooting a sheet of plywood versus a .50 Caliber. Which would win? (of course, bullet caliber of guns are different)


On January 23, 2008 at 6:42 am

Asan44, Every one of my points were regarding perks, namely Martyrdom, Juggernaut, Deep Impact, and Stopping Power. Hardcore team-Deathmatch in CoD4 is realistic because there are none, simple as that. And give me a break man…you defend CoD4 way too much. People don’t have the ability to pull the pin after being shot square in the head, and killed. Everybody knows that perk is not realistic at all. Suicides certainly, but not after they are already dead.


On January 23, 2008 at 10:25 am

Def17, you’re right about that. I was just referring to the Deep Impact perk that makes bullets of any type pierce thicker walls when it just wouldn’t happen in real life. I don’t want to split hairs, but in terms of reality, Infinity Ward goofed. – check that out (it’s actually a pretty cool video). The 5.56mm round from the m16 (probably one of the most commonly used guns in multiplayer) barely penetrates at all, and yet, with or without Deep Impact, it can shoot people through walls just as effectively as the AK-47 in CoD4.


On January 23, 2008 at 12:00 pm

Silva86, maybe they upgraded the weapons since that version. Never the less, it’s a game based on realism. Allthough a m16 wont penetrade a big beton wall 5 meters thick, it “might” penetrade a wood wall. I also think IW has got a good job with the M4/16 against the Ak-47 with muzzle climb and recoil. The Ak may be strong, but it climbs up fast.


On January 23, 2008 at 3:24 pm

Silva86 really doesn’t know what he is talking about it seems..

Call of Duty 4, a campers dream?

You see where they killed you from… that eliminates camping. toss a grenade where they killed you from if they are camping, done and done.

and the perks aren’t meant to be realistic because online play is not realistic.. you don’t spawn when you die.. its meant to balance it out and make it actually fun, instead of pure run and gun.

CoD3 is a terrible game, and if you have spent all that time playing it.. I pity you terribly.

On January 23, 2008 at 6:19 pm

plz contact me if you wont to get any ideas for call of duty 5


On January 23, 2008 at 8:40 pm

Well Yermom (nice name :lol: ) say a guy’s camping. With some the big flaws the grenade has in CoD 4, (like if you throw it below a table and hop on it, you don’t die) it is possible the guy survives. But is Silva’s “camping” staying in one area for the entire time, or staying in a general area for a long time.


On January 24, 2008 at 3:35 pm

I strongly believe that multiplayer for COD 4 is not meant to be realistic. Multiplayer is just to have fun. I would say that the Single-Player Campaign is more realistic, even though it is short. IW was still pretty accurate with the guns, but still, ever game will have its flaws. It is senseless arguing over a game. Some enjoy it, some don’t, thats just the facts. The weapons and other things may be flawed, but we all have to agree that the graphics are amazing.

I have no clue what COD 5 will be about, but we’ll all just have to wait and see. WW2 is definately overused, but if Treyarch does make it, whatever the subject is, hopefully, it will be good. WW1 can be good, there was more to the war than Trench fighting. Vietnam or something pertaining to the Soviets may be interesting too. I would assume that the next installment would be more fiction based.


On January 24, 2008 at 3:41 pm

Ok, COD 5 has been confirmed, and it is going to be WW2. But rumor has it, that it may take place in the Pacific. Which is a part of WW2 that was not used as much. The Medal of Honor franchise was the last to try this with their MOH: Pacific Assault. They may include British battles with Japan in the South-East Asia area. Treyarch IS making it.


On January 24, 2008 at 4:25 pm

The only flaw I can see in the multiplayer or the general weapon build is that the 5.56 mm bullets are too “strong” after hitting a surface than in the real life. In the real life, when a M16/m4 bullet hit flesh, the front part will slow down in speed, while the back part of the bullet will continue in speed. This means a break of the bullet and that hurts the person more….. so… it’s not a very good “anti-person-behind-wall” weapon I guess

Owh and you can snipe with the Desert Eagle… If you can aim for those stupid block iron sights… =)

On January 24, 2008 at 7:54 pm


Hmmm… This is not good news at all. After all, CoD3 was an extremely poor game compared to CoD4. The voice acting was poor, the fact that you get hit nearly point blank by explosions nearly every thirty seconds was just plain frustrating, and there was no kill cam. Granted, they did have some nice vehicle segments and the occasional button-mashing hand-to-hand combat was nice… But there was no water-cooler moments like in CoD4. After all, Infinity Ward was very meticilous to their attention to detail and the quality of the story. It wasn’t just a squad running through an unrealistic number of scenarios, it was FLAIR. There are so many unique action moments in CoD4, it’s not even funny. There is NO boring repitition in the game at all, what with the warhead going off in the middle of an American army, a flashback mission where you get to shoot the bad-guy’s arm off from half a mile away, two massive missiles nearly hitting America, and a really well-done ending scene that ends with you having to watch the character’s you’ve grown attached to getting killed. Tell me you didn’t say “Oh ” whenever you saw Zakhaev execute Gaz on the bridge, or Griggs go down with gun blazing.

And yet, after all that, they STILL want Treyarch to do CoD5? :cry: “Let’s go back to WWII!” “But the series just broke away from WWII, successfully, and is even better WITHOUT WWII!” “Exactly! We’ll just move to a different aspect of the war, and completely ruin the expectations of so many fans.” “Ooh, excellent idea sir!” Blegh.

Hopefully this time we can at least bayonet the Japanese and maybe, at least, keep most of the successful elements that made CoD4 so great (sadly, the Javelin will no longer be able to save your sorry ass from those crazy tanks). If Treyarch wants CoD5 to be successful, they’ll need to put a WHOLE lot more effort into the game, since apparantly all they want to do is milk it for cash. A feature where you could save allies in Last Stand mode would be awesome, like maybe carrying them or dragging them to a safe area (like in Army of Two, which looks promising to say the least). And if they don’t ah well. We’ll just have to wait for CoD6. –fingers crossed, gentlemen!–


On January 25, 2008 at 3:20 am

cant peek around corners wtf


On January 25, 2008 at 12:19 pm

Yermom, it seems you don’t know what the term “camping” even means. If I am sitting in a corner, at the top of some stairs, just waiting for people to walk up so I can mow them before they even have the chance to pull the trigger, I am camping. It doesn’t matter if you know where they are after they already killed you. Also, there are plenty of spots where throwing a grenade won’t help. Call of Duty 4 makes for great camping online because the levels are small, with lots of dead ends and corners…It’s really that simple.

And just to clarify, I play the Call of Duty series mainly for the online modes. Had I been more of a campaign type of player, I probably wouldn’t like CoD3 nearly as much. I’ve already said CoD4 had a better campaign than 3, by far. All I’ve ever tried to get across was that (keeping in mind that I still play CoD4 all the time) I find the CoD3 online mode to be a lot more enjoyable, and I’m fairly certain that I’ve stated the reasons as to why, plenty of times.

Now excuse me while I go finish my 7th prestige mode :grin:


On January 25, 2008 at 10:27 pm

treyarch :evil: !they keep on messing up the series :evil: . Wake me up when cod 6 is out


On February 2, 2008 at 1:15 am

Does everyone forget about United Offensive??? That was by far the best COD game ever made, and done by the Treyarch crew. COD1 was balls before Treyarch came in and made the UO expansion. COD2 was very popular but was a really crappy made game. Does everyone forget the lack of download redirects, no mod tools in the beginning, crappy ripoffs of COD1 maps, no vehicles….so on and so forth. It wasn’t until the mods and custom maps started coming out that COD2 really took off. Obviously COD3 not being released for PC left no chance for modders to get their hands on it and really enhance the gameplay. If COD5 comes out as console only, I bet it does very poorly. If it is a multi-platform release, it will be huge. I have been running COD servers for about 3 years now and have tried pretty much every map, mod and addon imaginable….It’s the community that makes the game great, not the developer so much. Just give us a little more to work with…Which Treyarch seems to do a better job of.

i think that each call of duty where great and actually that the original one is the best of all time, but if anyone new that all the creators of each call of duty spent most of their time on building an authentic and realistic singleplayer. im getting sick off all these ppl bagging on COD3 but the truth is that is has an awesome singleplayer and so did all the other ones. so please dont judge these games on their multiplayer.


On February 7, 2008 at 4:55 pm

I liked COD3 more than COD4 because I liked the fact you have medics and vehicles and I HATE the fact you get to see how the person killed you, it takes away all the fun in finding the person. So I think COD5 will kick COD4′s ass.


On February 7, 2008 at 11:38 pm

To Silva

Yes, people can drop a live grenade when they die, a lot of people do it with the chance. Yes, some people have more “health” than other people. We’re different that way. Some people go down easy, some a lot harder. Yes, people can make their bullets do more damage in RL, it’s called changing the bullet type. Yes, people can make the bullets shoot through thicker walls, it’s called armor piercing bullets. Yes, people do walk around with guns painted in blue, red, and gold painted guns. They want to die that way.

On February 25, 2008 at 5:02 am

CaptianBlaze….I’m all for the weed, assuming that’s what you’re referring to in your name, but you smoke too much.

1. You honestly think people run around a real live battlefield with painted, and gold plated guns? Use your head.

2. Ofcourse some people can take more punishment than others, but they can’t adjust that ability at will.

3. Most of the guns you see in the game can only be used with 1 type of ammunition. You can’t put an elephant bullet in an M-16. Research the guns, they are designed to use one size of ammunition, and nothing can magically change how much “damage” they do.

4. You obviously didn’t read my other posts. M-16s cannot pierce walls, it’s proven in the youtube video I posted earlier. Other guns are no better off, either. The MP5′s 9mm wouldn’t stand a chance, just like the other sub-machine guns.

5. Why do you even bother arguing the Martyrdom perk? Pull your head out of Infinity Ward’s ass, and use it for a second- after being shot and killed, a human being is not capable of having the awareness and mental clarity to pull a pin on a grenade. They are dead. They can’t move. If you somehow still think otherwise, you need medical attention.

On February 26, 2008 at 12:41 pm

I agree with Silva86. multiplayer in cod3 was more realistic because there were no perks and you couldn’t win by camping. the only problem was the glitches and lag problems (vehicles, support gunners, etc). If treyarch can fix those problems in cod5, it will be a great game. but dont get me wrong, cod4 has a great multiplayer mode, and if I just want to have some fun Ill go back and play cod4


On February 27, 2008 at 2:33 pm

cod4 kick arse cod3 compared to number 4. but for number 5 should do something differnt. but the same controls.

On February 29, 2008 at 9:16 am

First off, the gold thing was a joke, second, the Juggernaut perk is meant to represent the SOLDIER, which means, that specific SOLDIER has can take more punishment. Also, you must not have heard of different bullet types. For example, there is one bullet type called a JSP, or Jacketed Soft Point. It’s not exactly legal, but some soldiers still manage to sneak it in. Research it if you don’t believe me. OK, so maybe I was wrong about the wall thing and the Martyrdom thing, but for everything else, I’m sure of.

WWII would still be cool but i really think they should be creative and do something like civil war or WWI or maybe make somehting fictional like the cold war between the US and the soviet union turning to a hot war


On March 16, 2008 at 8:38 pm

and call of duty 3 isn’t TERRIBLE like a lot of people on here are saying. I didn’t hate it but i didn’t think it was better than COD2 either i only played it more because it was new and had new features like medics artillery strikes and vehicles, and also i had played cod2 for 360 since it came out and i sorta got bored of it. one thing about people saying cod4 would be better with vehicles. It MIGHT but i would always get pissed when on CoD 3 some got in a tank and owned my whole team. I like IW more but i will give credit to treyarch for putting new features like sprint, character classes and all the others i have mentioned but, imo IW perfected those features. Also realism isn’t a big priority of mine, CoD4 is one of the most realistic games as far as graphics go. Perks and bullet damage might not be so realistic but you learn to deal with it


On March 18, 2008 at 5:50 pm

you no i love my cod4 even though they screwed up the kill cam but cod3 was great and i think infinity ward should go make cod5 based on a nuclear war between us and the aussies so treyarch kiss my ass make a new war game infinity ward

On March 20, 2008 at 2:40 pm

Silva86, it is just a game…. calm down. The M-4 and M16 series obviously use the same rounds just so that production costs are lower and mass production can be done.
M-4′s and M16′s can penetrate walls, it just depends on the distance and firing rate. Walls are made of different materials. It is understandable that a M16 bullet may not penetrate some walls, but honestly, the walls in buildings in cod 4 look like they are dry wall and such. A 9 mm can penetrate through that.

It is clearly obvious that you wouldn’t have a golden AK-47 or painted guns (sniper rifles are an exception). Those skins are just what makes it a game! If you want to keep it realistic, just don’t put a different skin on it.

Perks like Martydom just make the game more challenging and balanced. Yeah, there are people who abuse it. The goal of this game is just to have fun, not complain about how “unrealistic” or “realistic” it is. If you want realism, then one or more hits from any gun means you are dead.

Whatever COD 5 will be about doesn’t bother me too much, because I am still going to play it anyway. If it is WW2 again, I’ll just play it, then that’s it. Though what I would like to see in the future of the COD series is fighting in jungles / tropical environments. Modern warfare is pretty good, and it is ok if WW2 is still played, if COD 5 is in the Pacific, I would like to see what their version of Pearl Harbor is. Though, fighting the Chinese or Soviets would be fun too.


On March 20, 2008 at 4:36 pm

Infinity Ward kick ass. To those who think that cod 4 multiplayer is full of campers i agree but i love it for that fact because campers are easy to find and with a bit of skill easy to kill.
Probably will buy cod 5 but will just be waiting for cod 6.
(note to whoever makes future games either go way back to ww1 or make up awesome story ((cod4 single player)) and keep it in the present. :-)

infinaty ward needs to make cod5 cause so far cod4 was their best game and their doin good lately :!:


On March 24, 2008 at 1:52 pm

i hope that they go back to ww2 with cod5, i like all the cods and 4 is good especially online. i think they need to make longer campaigns thoguh and do a pacific campign cuz they alredy did three with the germans. after that they should do more modern stuff.


On March 25, 2008 at 12:56 am

i wonder what all of you will think if the publisher screen kept blank at start and just play the game till finish. do a little bit of multiplayer and see how you like the game? coz from point of view, just because treyarch producing the 3rd series which you may not used to, you just doesnt like it. not the way it play but the way the treyarch logo appear instead of infinity ward.
i had my share in every call of duty game, they all are pretty good game. so neutral for me and enjoy the game


On March 25, 2008 at 7:23 pm

EVERYONE CAN HAVE YOUR OPINIONS, but can’t we all agree that CoD3 was soo much more innovative. They brought new concepts to the cod series that we all love like War, 24 players online, leaderboards, medics, ammo, airstrikes, vehicles, rocket launchers, mines, trueskill rankings, and WAR.

As for the person who said cod3 is camping… cod3 did not have search and destroy, Search and destroy was a campers delight. An objective where you are suposed to “”guard”"(camp) a site and prevent people from arming a bomb. Now what part of that is not camping?

CoD 3 had WAR, where you had to get on a position for a period of time to get it to move and get you points. You are not going to win WAR by hiding and going after kills. War was all about movement.


On March 26, 2008 at 2:22 am

how can u camp in cod 4? whenever i try i get slaughtered
as with vehicles, why no make them have multiple positions so u can use them, for eg 1 driver, gunner commander etc

COD gamer

On March 27, 2008 at 5:08 pm

I think the things with the vehicles is because they were testing the modern warfare idea so they didn’t put them in. I bet if they make another modern one, it will have vehicles. If it goes WW2 again, i aint buyin. The rumor about future warfare would be cool too. Still modern vehicles, even better!!! :lol: :evil:


On April 2, 2008 at 5:09 am

Whatever, not like we even need any more FPSs after CoD4!!!



On April 2, 2008 at 5:10 am

Oh I forgot check out

Great Call of Duty 4 site :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:


On April 5, 2008 at 4:59 pm

treyarch are the best, they changed normal cod2 into a fun, cool and good game.
It wasn’t as good as it could be but treyarch had less time to make cod3 but it was still cool (I liked driving the cars and stuff). anyway cod4 is cool but they should of added :idea: vehicles, longer singleplayer, classes e.g medics , fairer weapons and MORE PERKS , I hope infinyty ward are writing this down!
COD FOREVER LOL! :razz: :roll: :wink: :cry:


On April 7, 2008 at 9:56 pm

some people are so stupid – silva86 your definately one of them how can you say cod4 is for campers? to me it sounds like your just not being observent or skillful enough to stop them from killing you. yes i admit i have seen people trying to camp, but they’re the easiest to kill… if you decide to go around them instead of running straight into them. and theyre are usually multiple entrances/exits for most buildings in the game which you cant cover by yourself so i suggest you use a different strategy if you want to avoid/kill campers.

as for making bullets do more damage – have you never heard of hollow tip bullets? – obviously not. the only thing i can agree on is the annoying martydom perk but if you pay attention you would actually notice the sound of the grenade drop just before the enemy falls to the ground indicating they have ed it before they died. and also people talking bout it shouldnt have the perks are there to customise your player to your choice if they were no perks the game would be boring, unenjoyable and no fun as every other player would be exactly the same. enough said


On April 8, 2008 at 9:28 pm

WOW…….people people…..lets just wait till the time comes to start flamming up about it….right now we harldy know about what will be going on. So lets play any COD you want till the new one comes out then fight all ya want


On April 8, 2008 at 9:37 pm

btw my gamer tag is Kingcodeman1992 send me a friend request if ya wana play COD 4 i cant say anything about any of the call of dutys, except COD 4, and which i like it….thats b/c i never did own any of the COD’s intill now…

ta ta for now :mrgreen:


On April 12, 2008 at 11:51 am

Well to me Cod4 was the best Cod series game ive played. Cod3 was okay, i just didnt enjoy it as much as cod4. In cod4, the nuclear explosions, guys heli blowing up, and more glitches so you can have more free kills. :) but cod4 in my opinion has more action. So if your gonna flame me please do it quick and Painless :)


On April 12, 2008 at 2:14 pm

ok… look what everyone is forgetting is that we don’t make games… they do… I only bought cod 4 because my mates at work told me too… and it is a great game online.. I haven’t even played the story yet but the online multiplayer is very addictive… I have noticed alot of people saying that cod 3 sucks balls and all that. well in all fairness since I ain’t played I can’t say but WWII games?! haha if you haven’t noticed we are living in a new era.. besides those games have been done many times and they all look very dull. old guns… and just old everything.. personally if you want to play like that just buy the games already out for that… I mean timesplitters.. I think was a great game.. it was set in all different periods of time. they should do something more interesting… and make more things to be unlocked and stuff… more weapons and more things to do… as I know alot of people can be bored easily. so yeah more unlockables and not back to the ing past… god… we ain’t living history lessons! and I ing hope they read this an all!


On April 13, 2008 at 6:27 am

Everyone, you really have to stop putting down these games. First of all, COD3, in the long run of things was still a pretty amazing, addictive game. I don’t think it was nearly as good as COD4, but it’s unfair to compare the two and judge COD3 so harshly, simply because COD4 IS so ground-breaking… among THE best video games of all time in my opinion, so of course, anything can be crap in comparison.

And monkey, if they do it right, there’s nothing wrong with making games set in the past… it’s just the fact that it seems WWII has been just about exausted… but until someone does something revolutionary with it, they might stay boring for most people.

On April 17, 2008 at 10:45 am

wow! i’m soo glad treyarch are bringing back the wwII effect. i had only bought an xbox because of cod 3, i was extremely dissappointed with cod 4 because of the veichles(which you could not get in) cod 4 has a great online. But i’m sure if their were a new wwII game under construction by treyarch, their will be an even better game brought to the world. With technology improving i’m sure this could be the best game i have ever waited for in my life :smile: . who cares about the future is stuff awaiting to happen, back in the day(wwII) is where the real action happened.

nathan williams

On May 17, 2008 at 9:11 pm

by the way,with everyone saying ea are doing all the olden wwII games. what did you think they had done with 2142. brilliant game, but they have tried to hard,it makes no sense. you don’t get tutorials, you don’t get nothing. the game is practicly halo. trecharch all the way. if another future game comes out i will definately not be spending my money on it. i’m a real cod fan.don’t get me wrong cod 3 and cod 4 are amazing. but their just seemed to be soo much more to do and soo much more enjoyable on cod 3. wwII beats everything. we havn’t had a hard hit of detail graphics and gameplay from trecharch, who have a longer period of time to make the game,give them a shot they have some real tallent!

there should be better wepons and you should b able to put a silencer with a scope

or a night vision laser on the gun and you should b able to put a silence on a sniper to :grin: :razz: and carry on with moden war far


On June 18, 2008 at 11:21 pm

Listen, I have COD3 on PS2 and COD4 on PS3 and enjoy both of them. COD3 online is stronger at realism (except for “snaking” glitches), but COD4 has more realism on campaign. Whoever thinks COD4 is not realistic listen: you played at an actual place! Chernobyl/Chornobyl was featured in two levels. Go to GOOGLE MAPS and type in Pripyat, Ukraine. If you zoom in on reactor 4 and follow the large open lot you will come across some buildings especially the Hotel (where you snipe Zachaev). Although the buildings are rearrearanged you will eventually come to a pool. This pool is accurately portrayed… to an early 2000 picture of it. That is only a small flaw. I have to admit this was the most realistic event I have seen in a game. There are only three major flaws: the building arrangement. 2. The ferris wheel area is not accurate. One of the rides is missing, the bumper car area is too small, and the surrounding area is open in real life. 3. The radioactivity is wrong. It is different than in real life for barriers.


On June 18, 2008 at 11:37 pm

Continuing the inside apartments are radioactivity traps. Outside air is clean. Also they crawl facedown in the highly radioactive ground with no geiga counter or protection. Very dangerous. Also accurately portrayed is the road right after the church. The pipes are over the road because of the radioactive soil. Also weird is that a.50 caliber rifle may be collapsable, but a bipod is not. How did they get the rifles there? The last flaw is that the Exclusion Zone is heavily guarded so how did they get hundreds of troops in? This area is still amazing for Infinity Ward. Treyarch needs to do something like that.

COD3 had an OK campaign, but for PS2 one level leaves you hanging off the ground after a melee attack. If you disobey the commands you fall and die. After you pull yourself up your friend is right there patiently waiting for you instead of helping you. WTF?

In COD4 a terrorist takeover is shown very realistically. In COD3 you fight long levels on realistic turf. Both have their ups and downs.


On June 18, 2008 at 11:44 pm

PART3: Infinity Ward took away vehicles probably because of glitching. Anybody who has played COD3 online knows how to use a jeep at Elder Dam to get on top of the hill or under the map or on top of the house. Maybe in COD5 an aircraft carrier dogfight? That could be unfair because the Japanese have kamikazee planes. Also jeeps in COD3 were turrets. Move it to a spawn point and fire away.

Michael Curatolo says: kid u r u moron. u sound like a ing idiot because everyone in the room is saying cod 3 sucks and u say its good.first of all cod 3 sucked terribly. the only people who liked o played that game was people who sucked at call od dut 2 because cod 2 took way more skill and cod 3 was all camping and there was no kill cam to see where they were camping so u could go get them.and cod4 is ausome i dont know how its confusing… maybe u suck at it? and nobopdy cares for medics and for that kid Dan 4 people above me… noone wants vehicles anymore either cus all it did was ruin the games when people got in the vehicles they just ran people over like gits it took no skill.

I agree Cod 4 is way better but dude the kill cam sucks all you do is figure out where someone is owning you. looking at a small clip and figuring out where people are owning you cuz you suck; that takes no skill. thats why i play hardcore.

On July 18, 2008 at 5:22 pm

Infinity Ward kicked serious ass with COD 4. Treyarch has never made a good game before and they will not make a good game with COD 5. Granted, COD 4 may be challenging to a beginner; but that is the fun of a good game. My kill to death ratio is a 2.11 and I earned it by constantly learning from all of the others who were kicking my ass. If you cant handle the heat stay the out of the kitchen. COD 4 is without any question the best game that I have ever played since my inception into the video game industry with the release of the Atari. COD 5 will undoubtedly suck so we all just need to bank on the 6th title to have fun with. Anyone who is willing to dog on Infinity Ward for Treyarch’s name should seriously get their head examined. Hands down, I have never played a more magnificent game in my life and am still patiently awaiting the next installment of Infinity Ward’s genious. If anyone is hoping that Treyarch will somehow add on to COD 4, they are sadly mistaken. COD 6 is what I and more than likely millions of other gamers are waiting for. Until then, new maps, perks and weapons should suffice plenty. World at War is the sub-title that COD 5 is going to have and it is based in the Pacific during World War II. Treyarch did in fact do this game on their own and by no means have or could they ever improve upon what IW did. I have a slight inclination that Treyarch has been the ones in this chat room that has been discrediting COD 4. For all of those who do not like IW and their new masterpeice, GET A ING LIFE>>>>>>>>>>>>>> LIFE>>>>>>>>>>>>> :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

If you are on Playstation’s COD 4, hit me up on line and we will have a match. [7.62]SA1NTZ. That’s not an I but a #1. See ya soon. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:


On July 22, 2008 at 3:10 pm

everyone who said the LOVED cod3 is prolly to poor to get an next gen game system and never played cod4.And if you read what you are all commenting about there make alot of add-on in the next year makeing cod4 even better then ever

eew back t ww2? sucks
o well at least theres co op for the story now
cod story kicks ass multiplayer is ok
campers are just it takes no skill
shooters that takes skill is halo 3 and gears
pulling off impossible headshots in a tight situation is a tru skill compared t running thru enemies with ak47 in cod
but the whole idea of ww2 rly sux

anyone who says that cod4 is confusing or is just a retard. It took me about a month to go all the way to my tenth prestige and finish it.Since then i started over on 2 more accounts. So if you want to have a match let me know. ill go with the worst gun if you want and you can take whatever gun you want. capper23.


On August 23, 2008 at 4:36 am

and as for the not being vehicles in multiplayer. there are in campaign. thsat is about enough vehicles for me. All you have to do is drive the tank over someone. or sit and fire over and over and over and over. so get some balls and go shoot them and quit camping.


On August 23, 2008 at 5:46 am

You do realise this thread died about a month ago, and COD4 is a ty shooter. Sorry to open you to the world of competitive gameplay, but cod4 is right below My Little Pony. Get some actual skill that requires you to do something other than hold the trigger down for 30 bullets. Example, CS.

guys think about it if they let treyarch do Cod 5 then that will give infinity ward more time to make Cod 6 and thats going to be awesome if they have 2 years to make it,i just hope treyarch make a good cod 5.

United Offensive

On November 9, 2008 at 1:22 pm

Now that the “Beta” is out we can see just how badly Treyarch has screwed the CoD series. Frankly if I were at Infinity Ward, I would sue them to change the name before Treyarch causes irreparable harm to the series.

For that matter both IW and Treyarch can go 69 eachother since Neither of them can even hold a candle to what Greymatter did with the Original CoD and with United Offensive.

Save your money and avoid this steaming pile of foul smelling Treyarch.


On November 12, 2008 at 9:53 pm

OKKKKay seriously COD4 rocks like a mutha!!!! The new COD World at War by Treyarch can kiss my asss!! it sucks! Modern Warfare is by far the greatest, not just because of the weapons, maps, and perks, but because of the GRAPPPHHHIIICSSS!!!!! Infinity Ward rocks!!!!

Burning money

On November 14, 2008 at 7:48 pm

I can’t believe I wasted my money on Cod5. No no, I gotta go get the game before any reviews come out. What a sad attempt at a game. It lags, it’s aggrevating as hell, and worst of all I got robbed $70 for it! I might aswell give it to my dog to chew on. He’ll have a hell of alot more fun with the game then I ever will. Treyarch shouldn’t even be allowed to make games… F*** I’m pissed off!


On November 15, 2008 at 5:19 pm

You Kats now that they linked Xbox/Ps3 with PC users rite. thats wack they should know better then that, PC’s already came up with AUTOBOT for CoD(5) that just aint fun First we have the camperts now the autobot’s.

I played the Beta demo, only played it 3times adn went back to CoD4.

TREYARCH ed up Cod5 I just saw… :mad:

Good thing there is a confirmation for Call of Duty 6. Infinity Ward is coming back, I saw in IGN. I hope it’s like “Future Warfare”, but I hope it’s like 5 or 10 years in future, not a piece of games like Halo, I don’t want another Halo here. And for Treyarch go suck donkey s you guys screwed up the franchise. :???:

COD4 and COD2 ftw!!!! :mrgreen:


On November 22, 2008 at 11:27 am

Infinity Ward is amazing who cars about vehicles!! They did a exellent job on COD4. COD5 sucks. Cant wait until COD6 comes out Infinity Ward makes it Infinity ward does modern day. Who cares about the olden days its already past god damn it wise up you bunch off crooneys

Thank God theres gonna be a Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Call of Duty World at War sucks balls compared to CoD4. Although Treyarch s up Call of Duty everytime they go near it, it’s still better than having Infinity Ward doing it every year because that way they can take their time making it and I’d rather have a great Call of Duty game every other year than a meh Call of Duty every year because Infinity Ward being rushed. While CoD WaW is much better than CoD3, it still sucks compared to CoD4.

On December 8, 2008 at 1:45 pm

COD WAW’s singleplayer campaign is so bad I couldn’t even get past the first level, shockingly bad.

Well at least they didn’t change the multiplayer one bit :) . Even a developer can be trusted to make a good game if it basicly takes an actual good game and changes the grafics :)


On June 18, 2009 at 6:05 pm

A lot of you are retarded because ive been reading these stupid things as to like What is Martyrdom..obviously its a GRENADE DROP. Martyr=grenade dom=drop. Its called when you get shot you have enough time to pull the pin out of your grenade..a blind person could figure that out. COD4 is also call MODERN WARFARE for a reason because its more modern because it does have guns that people can use today and a lot of the perks are legit. When you hold your breath…you do steady a sniper. Juggernaut..retarded. You get stuck on everything the graphics blow a lot of the maps are dark. It doesnt even cover the whole damn WW2….only the US involvement which was 3 yeah.

Call of duty 5 was already made

it was called world at war, cod 6 was Mw2, the next cod will be 7.. deal with it …
