The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Xbox beta reportedly has the minimap players have been clamoring for.
Earlier this week, on September 20, the Twitter user seen below accessed the upcoming Xbox version of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta. What they discovered in the beta menu was the option to enable weapon pings on the in-game minimap, meaning they would see a red dot when a player fired their weapon.

This is something that developer Infinity Ward has removed from Modern Warfare 2 going forward. In a new blog post earlier this week, the developer explained that they didn’t want to penalize players for firing their weapons, so they removed the red dot that appears on the map to prevent enemy players from going straight to the hotspot. near. .
This decision has not sat well with the Modern Warfare 2 community since it was first announced. The crux of the complaints seems to be made up of the Silencer attachment, which the community now believes is completely redundant and useless, given that fired weapons won’t show up on the game’s minimap anyway.
So it’s strange that the Xbox version of the Modern Warfare 2 beta still has the old minimap with standard weapon pings available. However, it could be that this version of the beta, which has not been released yet, is an older version and will be updated to remove the option in the near future before the beta goes live for Xbox players.
If that’s the case, then Infinity Ward is very close. The Xbox beta is scheduled to launch later today, September 22, for those who pre-ordered Modern Warfare 2, before unlocking on Saturday, September 24 for all Xbox players, regardless of whether or not they pre-ordered the game.
We’ll have to wait and see if the option to enable weapon pings on the Modern Warfare 2 minimap is removed from the Xbox beta before it goes live tomorrow.
