Modern Warfare 2’s Most Divisive Feature Should Stay

The controversial minimap change introduced in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's open beta has improved gameplay for the better, despite a player backlash demanding that Infinity Ward reverse it. Whereas before in Call of Duty games players firing their weapon without a silencer or suppressor would appear as red dots on a minimap, in Modern Warfare 2, this has been completely removed. While this does remove a vital piece of information for players to assess their next move in a given multiplayer match, the decision to focus more on sound cues makes for a more immersive experience. Infinity Ward has explained Modern Warfare 2's changes with that reasoning in mind, but it's unclear if it will stay given the volume of opposition from the playerbase.
