Modern Warfare 2 fans applauded the arrival of revamped store bundles as an announcement for better game play experience.
Call of Duty has long been known for releasing various cosmetic bundles to give players more ways to customize their in-game appearance, from Operator skins and weapon blueprints for Modern Warfare 2 Operators, all the way down to weapon blueprints for every weapon in its arsenal.
As Season 3 Reloaded approaches, Activision continues to offer new bundles in their store ranging from Easter Bunny skins and team bundles – there’s sure to be plenty for fans to take a peek at and purchase!
Players have noted with alarm that one bundle seems to contain items from previous Call of Duty releases repackaged as one complete product set – much to their displeasure.
Modern Warfare 2’s Dr Kushlov bundle is not new at all; when Reddit user Kaaaaos posted a photo, members of the community quickly pointed out its similarities to 2019’s Modern Warfare Dr Kushlov package.
Reusing content to generate revenue is nothing new in Call of Duty world.
“Makes sense why they didn’t carry over previous bundles, right?” questions another user to explain why Activision didn’t allow players to port over bundles from game to game – particularly because many similarities exist, like Kastov 762 weapon blueprint.
Instead of completely revamping their appearance, this gun shares its design elements with that seen on Resonant blueprint from Modern Warfare 2019; thus retaining some similarity in appearance.
Activision’s ultimate aim is to maximize microtransaction revenue; even if this requires using existing assets in new ways, Activision is happy to use any strategy necessary for maximum gain.
Predict fewer unique designs and more reused assets during the rest of Modern Warfare 2 cycle.
