Gamer Shames Parent for Embarrassing Call of Duty Stat

A parent who plays Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was embarrassed by their child, who highlighted one of their stats which says a great deal about their approach to the game. Though reports of stats being inaccurate in Warzone 2 have been around for a while, this one appears to be quite realistic.

Infinity Ward has had a bumpy ride lately with their updates to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Post-update issues have been reported by players, and it’s not the first time the studio has caused more problems than they have solved. Although a sequel to the game is expected to be launched in the near future, Infinity Ward should strive to improve and refine the current game before releasing the next title.

My son says I should be ashamed

OrdinaryGymRatAbroad shared a statistic that they have 1733 proximity mine kills in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. This can be a source of great annoyance for some, as it is often one of the most disheartening ways to die in the game. Nevertheless, it is part of the game, and those who are proficient in using the proximity mine correctly can improve their skills.

The reaction on Reddit was diverse. There were people who applauded the feat, with another player stating they had earned more than 2000 claymore kills. Nonetheless, a large number of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 players agreed with the son of OrdinaryGymRatAbroad that dying to such an easy strategy was not enjoyable. However, the game does provide ample means to counter the proximity mine if players are willing to put in the effort.

It appears that gamers will not have to wait long to know what will become of the Call of Duty franchise in the future. Recently, a leak has indicated that the next game may be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, with Sledgehammer Games taking the lead in development. Going back to the Modern Warfare series would be an interesting decision, something that the yearly-released Call of Duty games have yet to attempt. Ultimately, only time will tell if this was the correct choice or if a more creative approach was needed to keep fans of the franchise interested in the future.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is accessible for purchase now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S users.
