Upgrade Your Weapons In Modern Warfare 3 After Watching The New Weapon Proficiency Trailer

October 27, 2011, By Christian Davis

In 12 more days Modern Warfare 3 will be on store shelves and in your consoles. The extremely popular modern war first person shooter breaks records each and every year and this time, it doesn’t appear to be any different. Sledgehammer Games and Infinity Ward have been working on the title together and they have a lot of great ideas going into the game. The trailer below highlights one of the new ideas called Weapon Proficiency. This new feature is essentially a leveling system for your weapons and will definitely reward players who are consistent with their gun of choice.

So how does it work? It’s quite simple actually. Say you choose the ACR assault rifle as your weapon and you want the new proficiency. Just keep using it. The more you use the gun, the better it will become thanks to the enhancements you’ll unlock such as faster melee or less kick when firing.

In addition to the new feature, we also get a look at some of the new weapons (PP90M1 and FAD) and three new grenade types: The Bouncing Betty, EMP Grenade, and the Trophy System. The “Bouncing Betty” is a new grenade type that once thrown on the ground, launches up in the air and takes out anyone that goes within it’s proximity. So if you’re not paying attention, you’ll grow to hate these fast.

EMP grenades are making an appearance in the game as well. Throw this into an area and all electronic equipment will be useless for a short period of time. The final grenade type shown is called the “Trophy System.” This is basically an anti grenade and anti rockets shield. Bullets will still reach the target but anything that explodes will not be useful.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments. Modern Warfare 3 is set to release on November 8th.

Editor’s note: That “The Bouncing Betty” is a real nasty weapon!
