MW3 Kill Confirmed multiplayer game mode combats camping

By Jamie Pert - Sep 5, 2011

If you asked 100 people to list three things which annoy them about Call of Duty multiplayer gameplay we are sure that a lot of people would moan about camping, there are many ways which developers can combat such vile tactics, however we think Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games could well be onto something with the new Kill Confirmed game mode.

So what’s Kill Confirmed? Well let’s firstly talk about a scenario which is extremely common on both Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2 (amongst other titles), quite often a player will set up a tent, sleeping bag and perhaps even start a camp fire because he has found such a safe place to lay down and pick off enemies from a distance, sometime no accuracy is needed as spraying with a LMG can be quite effective esopeciall if you camp with the correct class setup – this can allow you to be safe from UAV’s, RCXD cars, grenades and much more, which can sometimes ruin a game – this will not be effective in the new Kill Confirmed game mode which has been revealed for Modern Warfare 3.

In the Kill Confirmed game mode you will only be rewarded for a kill if you pick up a downed player’s dog tags, however if the downed player’s teammate manages to pick up the dog tags the kill won’t register – this should promote close combat and tactical gameplay, perhaps some camping will take place, but nowhere near as much as in other game modes.

To our knowledge you will have to pick up the dogtags of enemies you take out, which means you can’t sit back picking off enemies whilst a teammate runs round collecting the tags for you – we really think that this should give CoD gameplay a fresh dynamic, that said we won’t know how good this mode will be until we play it.

Below we have embedded a video which shows the Kill Confirmed game mode in action – we like the way that it will make Killsreak rewards such as Chopped Gunner less effective as when you respawn you should be able to pick up the dogtags which your teammates drop.

    Yea rubbish idea , If you wanna camp , camp . If u wanna run around , run around , its a game  ,which should be played how the owner of the game (which is extortionatly priced) wants too ! Should have spent more on the levels , more ladders , lifts , fixed guns , reach higher in up in buildings etc

  • How about you all don’t play this game mode then if you’re keen snipers? It’s really not that difficult. I really like this idea, but that’s because I’m much more of a ‘run and gun’ kind of guy. For example, marathon pro, lightweight pro, slight of hand pro, ak74u, etc etc is my current class on Black Ops. Sounds like the perfect game mode for that kind of class.

  • BAD IDEA!!!  Might as well take out large maps and sniper rifles while you’re at it.  What’s the point in having them in there?  I hate campers, but I dislike this idea much, much more.

    This is an utterly terrible idea. What it effectively does is remove long range combat ftrom the game. Just because you get a kill from a distance whilst behind cover doesn’t make you a camper. It’s sound tactical gameplay. If you’re only going to get credit for close range kills then they might as well do away with all those cool guns and arm us with clubs and baseball bats.

    Thats retarted. I’m not a camper I hate them but im a sniper. Similer in a way but if u snipe… why would u run into the middle of the map to pick up tags and give away your possition. That’s rediculus. Campers ain’t even a big deal. Sneak up on them then kill them. Stop using them as a excuse to why u suck at the game.

  • Jonezybass

    Awful feature of the game, if anything this will encourage more camping – kill someone then camp the dog tags so their team cannot collect them to deny the kill, after killing a few of the enemy team who tried to acquire the initial tag simply go and collect your 5+ kills… BRILLIANT.

    Sounds like it will only be one game mode. Sounds interesting. Once you play a game for awhile you learn all the “camping” spots. In my mind simply make refine the ghost perk. It should make you invisible to enemy aircraft but not spy planes. Ghost pro is more annoying than a corner camper.

  • ok lets say u shoot someone in a building from the ground, like in this video his teammates are going to be near him so your not going to b able to collect his dog tags, now being me i play GB’s all the time, and i would say im pretty damn good, i really dont mind the camping, it does not bother me that much, here is my list of piss offs in game, quick scope, i like commando pro, but the falling distance from any height is unrealeastic and should be changed a bit, the grenade launchers are so noobish, the gun attributes should be so everyone uses different guns and not all the same , example, if the UMP has the accuracy and damage why use another gun, now going back to Call of Duty 4 MW the first one, everyone used different guns, for instance; mp5 was favorite , but had a slight recoil, the scorpion had a short clip but ws freakin accurate and strong also, p90 not as strong but had a long clip, AK74u, idk what happened and why it was taken away but this was only good at short distances , and i would like to see this one again, so more variety of gun attrubutes. overall i think you guys should consider all facts, its not just me that noticed all this, i picked up on what others do and experienced it also, so behind me there is probobly few thousand others. in black-ops, dude why did u make the character jump on the ground if your running when u press the (b) or (o) button that makes it harder for me to drop shot after running. there is alot of flaws in black-ops, thats why i took it back, the zombie mode was the only one i liked. another thimg is black-ops killstreak rewards<< when you get the dogs , can someone tell me how a DOG can kill you 1 bite? i can understand if it was an acid dog in flames that bursted on you but wtf, if i get attacked by a dog i die?thats so unrealistic, i know you can shoot/stab them b 4 they get to you but that gives away positioning…smh. no more One man army perk either , that perk is like for tooberz/nooberz who want to camp toobing, so take that off and pain killer. dont get to carried away with old guns, i know that treyarch like to go back in the day, and i hated both games, its called MODERN , not USED to be warfare, killstreak rewards, i would like to see a litte bit more that the ones we have now, (keep in mind im talkin mostly about MW2), and some killstreaks should b taen out such as the nuke!!, i can end a game in like 2 mins with a good spawn toob and get my harrier and basically its over, << not fun at all , but as far as the dog tags, yes i like the idea of it but, keep trying

    its just a game mode not every game tupe is like that so calm down MW3 is going to be awesome

  • You have terrible grammar dude. How do you expect to be a profession blogger, or whatever it is that you do, whilst writing in such a manner. You need some lessons; and some of the things you wrote here are completely incorrect. Learn about these things bro.

    • BallsOnYourChin

      Speaking of grammar, I noticed you use lack of punctuation, kind sir. Please refrain from tearing apart this failed abortion of an article any further. Thank you. 😀

  • It that’s the purpose, then sniper rifles are not necessary. Because, imagine you shout an enemy at long distance, then you need to run all the table without being killed to take a dog tag. 🙁 I don,t know then what is the essence of a Sniper rifle.

    Unless they allow people to quick scope again, then with this game mode, sniper rifles would become extinct.
