I’ve always been a fan of first-person shooter multiplayer matches that feature cool intros. I love the way you leap out of a carrier to start the fight in Respawn’s Titanfall 2. Call of Duty: WW2’s intro for the wonderful War mode, which sees soldiers sat next to each other as they’re driven into the battlefield, gets the blood pumping. And Destiny 2’s Gambit mode has a deliciously troll-fuelled intro, which sees each team face each other, free to spam emotes before and after each round.
Now, add Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to the list of shooters with cool multiplayer intros.
In a brief video published to Twitter, Activision revealed how multiplayer matches start in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. In the example shown, the players are flown in via chopper onto the landing zone and, without a break in the shot, hit the ground with weapons up. The countdown is up and the match starts.
