COD: Ghosts to reward you with in game visual awards

Recently Grant Hinds got to sit down with Mark Rubin of Infinity Ward on our behalf to ask him about all things Call of Duty. We showed the first part of that interview yesterday and today the interview is about the upcoming Squads and Clans functionality.

One of the interesting aspects of the squad functionality however was revealed by Mark and that is if you do exceedingly well in the upcoming fortnightly competitions you are going to be rewarded with in game virtual awards of sorts.

The awards will be things that you can then use to customise your characters such as special helmets, weapon skins, entire outfits etc.

It’s a nice touch and something I can see the hard core fans working really hard to obtain. Nothing is better for bragging rights than character design options that everyone can see but no one else can just get.

It will also help the weaker players, so when I turn around the corner and see a guy at the end of the map with a glowing disco ball on his head I know not to laugh but rather to run crying to my mommy as he’s going to kick my ass.

Whether they are going to go down the silly route of rabbit costumes and disco balls or stick to something slick and cool like black robocop styled helmets though is still to be seen.

Keep an eye out later for the video that will explain the rest of the clan and squad system.

      Also Dota2, BF3 and several other games I most likely don’t care about 😛

      Edit: I forgot about team fortress.

          Actually WoW would be the original as it had funky item rewards for ages.

            sorry but if you think WoW was the first MMORPG to do this then you’re dead wrong, you need to look up Runescape.

            Okay let us play a game then. Everquest … while not in its initial stages did give out weird reward items mostly in the form of capes but still. Thats 1999.

      True but you can buy it as soon as you start the game. The only time you would know is if someone killed you. Battle Rank 100 : “GG you really go me :)”. Battle Rank 1 : “WTF lag rage camper!!!”

            When I unlock something, I really feel a sense of achievement. Buying seems cheap

            Agreed, but you can’t unlock camo or armor which sucks.

    I would love a game that started with horrible graphics and sound. A long game and as you beat each level you are rewarded with points for the graphics and sound store.

    Just imagine owning your own level of immersion. The more you play the more you see the real game. Risk = Reward.

        Yip, I think the persona of OldFart, Oldvideogamer and OVG has become dated. The sprinkle of Jim Sterling, AVGN and Zero Punk’s juvenile cynical comedy has become stale.

        I have noticed that the LG community has also become a bit more adult over the past 4 years and the trolling has also subsided.

        Time to get real.

      Methinks… UPGRADEABLE EXOSKELETON!!! Tahdaaah!
      Imagine, earning your exoskeleton after days of game play, (you get a few upgrades like faster panning when in sighting your weapon or less damage taken, or faster reloading etc..) but its NOT complete… there are panels that are missing, panels, when added on, gives u less damage taken AND some new benefit… like seeing through walls, or jumping buildings in a single bound, u know, or something medical.
      Now, imagine turning the corner, and finding someone that has ALL the panels… BADASS TO THE MAX!

        That would be cool. I love seeing the weapons that one has upgraded on the character. I enjoyed the Lara Croft weapons as simple as they were. It just gave a sense of personal detail into the character.

    They should award tea bagging and make it so that you can’t remove it for a day when done excessively. So that everyone can make fun of the teabag guy.
