Just today, Kotaku gave the inside scoop on Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer mode. What they've uncovered so far from inside sources is not, unlike the single player mode, "locked in stone" as the multiplayer mode may change in the months near the release date and even after the game launches.

The game's multiplayer will have cooperative Special Ops maps and traditional multiplayer maps. There is reported to be 20 multiplayer maps that are being developed at the moment.

For Call of Duty zombie fans, I'm sorry to say that there won't be any zombies featured in this game since this is not Treyarch-published.

Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games are trying to change perks and killstreaks around in Modern Warfare 3. They have come up with new Team Perks, which teams can work towards earning. However, it still hasn't been revealed what kind of team system will be able to earn these Team Perks.

The four Team Perks that have been leaked to Kotaku are:

Quote
Stopping Power: Increased bullet damage.
Blast Shield: Unclear
Health Regen: Regenerate health over time.
Stun Protection: Prevent stunning from flash grenades.


And here are some new perks that are going to be featured in MW3:
Quote
Blind Eye: This makes you immune to computer-controlled and player-controlled killstreaks. The pro version makes your launchers lock on faster and gives you extra bullet damage to vehicles.
Assassin: This makes you immune to UAV, thermal, and heartbeat sensors. The pro version also makes you immune to CUAV, EMP and no longer shows your name in red or the crosshair in red when you're targeted.
Point Guard: Every two assists count as a kill towards your killstreak.
Dead Silence: You make no noise.
Recon: Gives you a special kind of radar to spot enemies, most likely. We're not sure on this one.


No news as of yet how many perks are going to be available in the game and how many are going to be carried over from the previous titles.

New killstreaks will also be featured in the game. However, the Tactical Nuke killstreak is reported to have been removed. The ones that they THINK may be on are:

Quote
EMP Grenade: Temporarily takes out all area electronics.
Littlebird: A small-manned helicopter that can controlled and used to gun down enemies. [Updated]
Precision Airstrike: Calls in an airstrike on a targeted area.
Stealth bomber: Calls in a B2 Spirit to carpet bomb along a line designated by the player.
Remote Turret: A remote controlled turret.
Directional UAV: A UAV that can be directed into areas to scan for enemies.
Remote Mortar: Direct a mortar team using a zoomable camera view of the map to call in strikes.
Airdrop Trap: A booby-trapped airdrop.
Ammo Resupply: An ammo reloading airdrop.
Escort Airdrop: A protected airdrop.
Specialist Strike Package: This one remains a mystery to us.


Now, for the sad/bad news: MW3 will NOT have dedicated servers. Multiplayer will rely on hosted servers, as was done with Modern Warfare 2.

Oh this game has now gone down the primordial down spiral. It's going back to MW2 way, it's not gonna end well... I will hand it to them with the whole co-op mode and stuff, but the perks look..silly to me. I really want to see those killstreaks, I am sure the AC-130 got brought back if it isn't fanboys are gonna rage.

Quote
Stealth bomber: Calls in a B2 Spirit to carpet bomb along a line designated by the player.

-srsly?? again!? the killsteak that spawn camps!? ....NEXT!!!!

Quote
Remote Turret: A remote controlled turret.

- So we had auto turrets, now we can control them, meaning an open kill ain't that just prime...

Quote
Directional UAV: A UAV that can be directed into areas to scan for enemies.

- another open guy to kill awesome!!! Cheesy

Quote
Remote Mortar: Direct a mortar team using a zoomable camera view of the map to call in strikes.

- open guy for easy kill ftw!!!

Quote
Airdrop Trap: A booby-trapped airdrop.

- Well that takes away Hacker pro's job. What happens if your teammate tries to open it!?

Quote
Ammo Resupply: An ammo reloading airdrop.

- This...is...oh god.. *facepalms* NEXT!!

Quote
Escort Airdrop: A protected airdrop.

- wow...it's so special it need to be protected...shoot them all down dammit!

I think everyone needs to remember that these are just rumors, and some things has been "confirmed" will not be in the game, like stopping power. I just wanted everyone to remember that all of this information might be false.

Yes we are aware none of this is fully confirmed however this is what brings hype/de hype about games. the pre release information and ideas of what a game may be like once released.

My thing is if that's a perk, it's gonna be the most ABUSED perk in the game, everyone is gonna spam it to death.

But those got so rare, no one uses that killstreak unless it comes in a care package.

Well my point is if the health regen is taking out of the game then wtf? However i could be over looking and the perk just "maximizes" the time it takes? and then in that case like you stated. Will be the most abused one..

If you want official news and not fake bullshit then I advise @fourzerotwo

Here's some stuff.

Quote
I've got good news for you, we ARE bringing back the original MP5 from COD4, updated visually of course for #MW3.

Quote
There is blatantly false information in that article. I encourage you to reserve judgement until you have facts.

Quote
There is no Stopping Power period. We also have no such thing as 'team perks'. All other #MW3 MP details remain
undisclosed.

Quote
Lots of false #MW3 info being reported as fact. There is no Stopping Power, OMA, Commando, or Nukes. Beyond that, you’ll have to wait & see.

Quote
We have not announced whether Dedicated Servers are or are not in #MW3.

Seriously guys don't jump to conclusions on information that isn't official.

402 is probably the larger sh*t-spewing community manager of all time.
Two yeas ago, before MW2 launched, he was talking how PC version would have dedis and special features.
