Other than serving as punching bags or gory piñata, enemy demons are often a great source of item drops. Slice them in half to refill ammo, burn them using your shoulder-mounted Flame Belch to get armor and go for a brutal Glory Kill to replenish health bar.

Doomguy can smash through enemy barrage and walls or even dash enemies in midair to crush them. You can see a hulking demon at one point that resembles a lot like the Cyberdemon from 1993 Doom and Doom II due to series reboot in 2016.

Classic campaign mode is coming back once again after it was removed last year for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and players would assume the role of a highly-trained operator on a journey that is based on really gritty narrative about global power-play.

You would engage in an intense campaign side by side with special force operatives throughout the world during single-player experience to complete many covert operations and it sure will be one emotionally charged ride for all.

There will be close-quarter combat, long-range fights and even stealth operations that are based on real world modern war, each testing your decision-making skills and tactical approach towards any situations under extreme conditions.

One of its greatest aspects would be featuring a cross-play support for over consoles and PC platforms when in multiplayer mode. Also, Modern Warfare would get rid of a traditional paid Season Pass system for CoD, which is pretty cool.

In continuation of an annual cycle of releasing a CoD title each year, Activision has brought back Infinity Ward on board and they are doing a soft reboot over the franchise to offer a re-imagined experience for everyone.

Instead of coming up with Modern Warfare 4, the studio decided to simply make it Modern Warfare for 2019, because originally it all begin from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare back in 2007 and though weirdly, somehow that makes sense.
