One of the hottest topics over the course of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare‘s life has been the mini-map. Infinity Ward decided to change things up this year, making the mini-map less powerful than in previous titles. While it’s the same circular map, red dots do not show up when an enemy fires a nonsuppressed weapon. When a UAV is active for you or your team, the red dots will appear. However, only having access to this information while a UAV is active makes for extremely slow gameplay. Recently, a YouTuber asked an Infinity Ward developer if they plan to change this mechanic. The answer will surely disappoint most fans of the franchise.
Infinity Ward remain firm on mini-map stance
With such a slow pace, many fans in the community have pleaded with Infinity Ward to revert. Most feel that the mini-map in every other title previous to Modern Warfare was perfectly fine. However, that’s not the way multiplayer designer Joe Cecot and Infinity Ward feel.
Last week, YouTuber Swagg and many more creators were flown out to Los Angeles for a Modern Warfare capture event. At this event, Swagg was able to ask multiplayer design lead Joe Cecot about the possibility of Infinity Ward reverting back to the old mini-map. In short, Cecot said that they feel the mini-map in place now is best-suited for Modern Warfare. This mini-map is the one they designed specifically for Modern Warfare.
So, at least for the time being, the mini-map will stay as it currently is. Of course, if Infinity Ward feels enough pressure, they could revert. Although, this seems highly unlikely at this point in time. Players will either have to make do and adjust or take the route of others and simply stop playing.
