Movement Changes

Sliding Movement

If you’ve played 2019’s Modern Warfare, Vanguard, or Warzone, you will be familiar with the sliding movement.

This movement is very helpful to escape from danger or even to disorient your opponent. The sliding movement is making a return in Modern Warfare 2.

Diving Movement

Diving is another movement that has massive benefits on the Call of Duty saga. The Diving movement was last seen in World War 2, but long-time Call of Duty fans know that the Dolphin Dive was popularized in Black Ops.

The diving movement it’s coming back to Modern Warfare 2, to give players the ability to change up the way that they play and move around the map.

Swimming Movement

Modern Warfare 2 will bring the presence of water back into the saga. This feature completely changes the gameplay, as players now have another feature to take advantage of.

In Modern Warfare 2, players will be able to swim in water, however as far as we know, players will only be able to use Pistols and Melee while swimming underwater.

Ledge-hanging Movement

The new ledge-hanging movement will allow players to interact with the environment in many ways. This movement will allow you to pull yourself up from a ledge and peek over the top.

The ledge-hanging movement will give Modern Warfare 2 players more movement options to change the gameplay.
