Call of Duty Goes Class-Based with Infinite Warfare Multiplayer

Infinity Ward recently unveiled Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer Mode which has evidently taken a page from Blizzard’s class-based shooter Overwatch.

Last year, Call of Duty: Black Ops III revamped the franchise’s signature Create-a-Class feature by introducing 9 Specialists – each having unique abilities.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer Mode is Another Class-Based Shooter

Building on the same formula, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer Mode features a total of 6 classes called Combat Rigs. Each of these classes are highly customizable which can be done in the middle of a match:

  • Merc – Heavy
  • FTL – Assassin
  • Stryker – Tactical Support
  • Warfighter – Mid-Range Assault
  • Phantom – Marksman
  • Synaptic – Close Quarters Combat

In addition to this, each Combat Rig in the game comes with two Payloads – x2 abilities, x1 weapon – and a total of 3 changeable Traits. Payloads can essentially be considered as Specialist Abilities from Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Traits are class-specific perks.

The ability to customize your Combat Rig in the middle of a match is another thing Infinite Warfare draws from Overwatch, allowing players to change strategies on the get-go.

While some of these Payloads and Traits may sound overpowered on paper, there is a depth to the whole formula which makes the entire experience a lot more tactical as compared to previous Call of Duty iterations.

The situation you are in, team needs coupled with a few other things dictate which Payloads and Traits you need to go with. Apart from that, the timing of is of utmost importance because of lengthy cooldown durations of Payloads – one misclick and you lose an important fight.

At large, the system feels identical to Call of Duty: Black Ops III Multiplayer. Even the classes, payloads, and traits fail to bring something fresh to the table on a large scale.
