Infinity Ward has boldly announced this Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 won’t have the much-maligned Last Stand benefit, but that’s only technically Correctly. A presenter at the Call of Duty Next showcase announced to much fanfare from the crowd that the upcoming game will nullify the perk that allows players in previous CoD games to fall on their backs after death and try to shoot back at an enemy. A lot of players don’t like this because they feel it’s frustrating to be killed by someone in that dying state. However, another perk in the beta called Survivor effectively does what Last Stand does, making the developer’s claim seemingly fallacious.
How the Survivor perk replaced Last Stand in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II
As noted by CharlieIntel, a Tier 4 perk in the Modern Warfare II beta called Survivor states the following: “After dying, enter Last Stand with the ability to self-revive once per life.” Teammates can revive downed players more quickly.” The fact that “Last Stand” is specifically mentioned is all you really need to make the case.
It’s unclear why Infinity Ward would make a statement that seems so misleading, despite the presenter exclaiming, “Yeah, f*** Last Stand!” at the event. In any case, most fans, including insider Tom Henderson, have reacted negatively to this switcheroo on Twitter.
To play devil’s advocate, however, the Survivor perk is only available in beta, so it may not make the final cut. Even if it stays, the benefit is in the Tier 4 group, which unlocks around mid-game in the new system. So you don’t have to deal with it about half the time. The moderator may also have simply forgotten that the Survivor benefit exists. Otherwise, he also mentions other balance improvements that appear to be present in the beta, such as: So at least there is.
In other news, the Call of Duty DMZ mode has been given a release date and will be free to play, and The Sims 5 reveal will reportedly arrive in October, according to an insider.
