Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Devs Address White Phosphorus Controversy

The developer behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has addressed criticism over its decision to use the controversial real-world weapon white phosphorus in multiplayer mode.

Multiplayer design director Geoff Smith told VG247 that Infinity Ward views multiplayer as a playground and separate to the darker themes of single-player campaign. As such, it doesn’t make comment on any real-world aspects of war.

The ICA Executive Briefcase MKII will be available as a reward from August 8 for players who complete the Best Case Scenario Challenge Pack. If you have access to the Sgail map, the pack is free.

Like the original bug, when Agent 47 throws the new briefcase it will glide regally through the air – even around corners – seeking out unsuspecting NPC skulls. The original bug was so unintentionally masterful that IO Interactive dragged their feet in patching it. After reluctantly fixing it, the development team decided to introduce it as an official weapon
