We understand that Battlefield 3 fans might get themselves a grenade launcher too, but i think they really should see what Modern Warfare 3 has in store for the shooter fans, in terms of a grenade launcher.
Speaking to OXM, Robert Bowling, they guy you see so often talking about MW3 has discussed about certain weapons that would blast your screen.
“Say you’re picking guys in windows out long range in Manhattan, but then kick through a door and start clearing a building,” said Bowling.
“You can now fold down your magnifying scope and already have a close-range optic on your gun – so now you’re engaging guys close-target without having to change weapon.”
There’s also a new weapon available for the new Call of Duty, where he described it as “Punisher”. The XM25 air burst grenade launcher that is.
“It’s great for when you’re fighting in an urban environment. If a guy is behind a concrete barrier, you can laser-tag that cover point, fire over it and it will then programme the round to explode one metre past it. Anyone hiding behind it will be showered down.”
