A Call of Duty: Modern Warfare player posted their recent discovery that the video game almost had a cinderblock as a possible melee weapon.
Editor’s Note: A lawsuit has been filed against Activision Blizzard by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, which alleges the company has engaged in abuse, discrimination, and retaliation against its female employees. Activision Blizzard has denied the allegations. The full details of the Activision Blizzard lawsuit (content warning: rape, suicide, abuse, harassment) are being updated as new information becomes available.
The popular Call of Duty: Modern Warfare almost included a cinderblock as a functioning melee weapon. Activision’s 2019 video game is the sixteenth installment in the Call of Duty video game series and still caters to an active fanbase.
In this battle royale title where players must fight for their survival, the weapons are a central focus in the game. As in all other Call of Duty games, players have the option of using different weapons to defeat their enemies and emerge as the last one standing. Standard in these first-person shooter games are the primary weapons of assault rifles, SMGs, shotguns, LMGS, marksman rifles, and sniper rifles. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare also has secondary weapons like handguns, launchers, and grenades. However, the game almost had a more questionable weapon for melee.
