Underwater Combat Mechanics – CoD Modern Warfare 2

Water mechanics have changed dramatically since recent iterations of Warzone and Modern Warfare 2, with the physics in the game’s engine now simulating an original form of water, complete with fast currents and surging waves. The water within the game can be polluted, clean, murky, or have floating debris, adding further complications to Aquatic Combat.

When the water level is deep enough, players can swim across the different bodies of water in both titles. To dive under the water, you must change the position of the operator, look down, and run.

While in the water, you will only be able to shoot enemies with a limited number of weapons, such as a pistol, since you will not have access to your primary weapon. In addition, players can take advantage of the water by diving under it to avoid enemy attacks.

Because the density of the water affects a weapon’s projectile, players will need to command their shots to be more accurate underwater. You can also swim underwater to find submerged bunkers.

Water battles will become an important factor in tactical gameplay and in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. Aside from being able to hide, escape and retreat into bodies of water, other tactical elements can also be used strategically above and under water to confuse, stun an opposing team, or ambush them in water. .

Fans are looking forward to seeing how new tactical elements such as the shock stick and inflatable decoy can be used in water-based combat. You can also travel by boat and various other vehicles, such as the inflatable steel boat, which is best for traveling through narrow waterways, and the armored patrol boat, which has a 50 cal machine gun.

Where Both Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 Built using the same engine, players can expect to see new water mechanics applied to both titles. So mastering the new mechanics will give you an edge no matter what game you load.
