New Modern Warfare 2 clip reveals important details

Iconic Call of Duty sniper rifle, MSR

As seen in the clip, Soap MacTavish seems to have the MSR equipped as he gets out of the vehicle. Similarly, in the first half of the clip, he and Ghost seem to be rushing to get into cover with the same sniper rifle in their hands.

The MSR is a sniper rifle featured initially in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It was one of the title's top two choices for sniper users, alongside the L118A.

The sniper rifle's hard-hitting capabilities set it apart from its counterpart. It dealt more damage than the L118A and had a bigger scope, allowing players to see more.

Return of AC-130

In the second half of the clip, Soap seems to be signaling in the air for the AC-130. The responder in the AC-130 warns of a 'danger close' situation as he drops missiles on a farmhouse.

A similar mission was featured in the original Modern Warfare (Call of Duty 4) campaign, where the AC-130 was responsible for providing firepower and cover to Captain Price and his team as they were trying to escape enemy territory.

Modern Warfare 2 is just around the corner. It will feature the most immersive campaign the series has ever seen. With graphical upgrades and new audio technology implementation, this game is set to be the beginning of the truly next generation of Call of Duty.

Players now await the Call of Duty Next event to learn more about the highly-anticipated title.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is scheduled to launch this October 28 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series S/X, and Xbox One.
