Advanced Warfare Multiplayer Reveal


Today at Gamescom in Cologne Germany, Activision and Sledgehammer Games offered an insider view of the Call of Duty series Advanced Warfare and its online multiplayer offerings. The central theme throughout the reveal was “You Play Your Way.” Customization is pinnacle within Advanced Warfare Multiplayer, and customizing everything from your load-out to your player is going to be had.

The initial announcement was about the addition of the EXO Movements and Abilities. The addition of “EXO” is just this. EXO involves the exoskeleton of the player and encompasses such things as the Boost Jump, Boost Slide, and Boost Slam. It will also include three options of hover, cloak and shield, and the addition of the threat grenade.

The next thing on the list was Supply Drops. XP will still exist, but you will also get advantages of adding in character gear, reinforcements, and weapon loot.

Weapon Loot:

Gamers will be able to modify their bare weapons beyond anything like in the past. There will be more available add-ons than in any other release of Call of Duty.

Character Gear:

AW will offer a new charter system overall. Customizing your player within Advanced Warfare Multiplayer will be more engaging than ever before. From weapons down to eyeglasses, customization is going to be a massive part of your player and character.


Reinforcements with Advanced Warfare offers the gamer new perks and scorestreaks. This will help the new and noob player bigtime and offer beginners a better chance overall at winning matches.

The next big thing released was the advancement in Supply Drops. This translates into the more you play, the more you receive. At this point, Sledgehammer went into Pick 13, and it is way better than Pick 10 from Black Ops II. If you recall Pick 10, then you will understand Pick 13, and it is much better. It involves customizable scorestreaks, option add-ons, and even the advent of a rocket controlled turret.

The next most significant announcement was the integration of Co-op Scorestreaks. Two players can collaborate and work together to earn Scorestreaks. Scorestreaks are very close to Killstreaks, and all you have to do is just imagine working together on Killstreaks with another player. You can work in collaboration with another player to ear Scorestreaks and dominate a match.

Virtual Firing Range:

Here at, we believe the most refreshing reveal of Gamescom 2014 and Advanced Warfare Multiplayer will be the addition of the Virtual Shooting Range. If there is any significant advancement within the Call of Duty Multiplayer series, this will be it. It stands out as one of those “Why Did They Not Think of This Before” ideas. You get to pre-try your load-out before you get into the multiplayer match. Once you select your best load-out, you are given the option of going into your shooting range to test out your load-out against real action targets. This is cool and an idea that makes perfect sense. You can try out your load-out before entering a match. This is huge. This is a significant breakthrough. One breakthrough that will be sure to be a hit in Gamer.Ninja’s opinion.


Create-An-Operator offers fine-tuning of a player down to the very smallest detail. This allows the Gamer to create his/hers own player down to the color of hair and stance. From the EXOskeletons to Boosts, you can create a player that is almost identical to your self. It is almost scary how detailed your player can become.

Virtual Lobby:

The second most innovative design within Advanced Warfare would be the advent of the Virtual Lobby. Is makes the lobby time wait a little more interesting. As you expect to gain access to a match, the Virtual Lobby will allow the Gamer to view their opponents virtually. Up and down and side to side, you can see what you about to go up against. From armor to load-outs, you can view what your opponents are going to unleash on you even before entering the next match. This is not just going to be a release of gamer stats. This will be a release of everything, including the underwear.

Advanced Warfare offers both a competitive and social feel within the gameplay. The additions of the above show us some significant breakthroughs in what gamers are asking for.

The next release in the Gamer.Ninja offerings surrounding the Advanced Warfare multiplayer edition will be the secrete reveal and the maps revealed for Advanced Warfare and what they will be offering.
