FourZeroTwo (FZT) asked the community to pose questions via the popular blogging site, Twitter. You've probably seen FZT in Modern Warfare 2's trailers - he's the guy that always gets killed at the end. The MW2 community asked hundreds of questions, and FZT answered in force. Here's a compiled list of features that he has stated will (or will not) be in Modern Warfare 2.
What is the level cap in MW2?
Max level in MW2 is level 70 this time. "We have a lot more weapons, perks, attachments, callsign items, and equipment to unlock this time, needed more levels!"
Will IW do anything to deal with the use of controller mods?
IW stated they are addressing modded controllers in MW2 - slightly different than the Rate of Fire cap we did in COD4 recently, but gave no specifics.
Will our Australian buddies have better luck getting into games faster and with better regional selections?
There isn't an option to search specific regions / countries when matchmaking, but there is improved matchmaking to auto-assist. (what ever that means)
Someone must of asked about the new riot shields in multiplayer and what if everyone was using them.
"An entire team of Riot Shields would be slow moving and extremely vulnerable. Flash grenades force you to expose some...(the sentence was incomplete, perhaps he was saying a flash will cause someone with a shield to expose some of their body while stuned)
"Quite a few maps have varying degrees of visibility due to weather effects." Also there WILL be SNOW MAPS in MW2 multiplayer, Notice he said MAPS, so maybe a few good ones. (402 also mentioned in another interview a weapon attachment called a thermal sight!, this will allow you to better see your enemy through weather or other visibility obstructions such as smoke and dust.)
On taking down an enemy AC-130.
"It takes two rockets to take down an AC-130 in MP. Meaning you can't do it alone but can do it as a team", (this would indicate you only get one shot with an AT4, and possibly that gunfire will have no effect on the AC-130)
Airdrops can give resupply or drop you a knew kill streak. Can you choose between the two before you drop?
"Nope. Air Drops are random. They could be an ammo resupply or an awesome killstreak reward. Its luck of the draw." (now we know the enemy can get to your resupply crate and use it for them selfs if you drop it too close to them, I am curious if it is a kill streak in the crate, and they get to it first if they get to use your kill streak reward?)
Will we get a Demo?
Basically the answer is NO!
What game type is Special Ops mode?
"Special Ops includes a variety of gametypes and mission objectives. One of many being a Wave Defense type." it has also been mentioned that many of the games and maps in Special Ops mode must be unlocked by compleating other Special Ops games. This may be quite a challenge to unlock all the maps if any or all of them are as challenging as Mile High Club!
On the question on getting anything other than a new badge for prestige.
"There are going to be a few rewards for hitting prestige in #MW2 - can't go into details, but there will be goodness to be had"
