Modern Warfare 3 players are divided over the potential enemy outline feature

The MW3 developers have announced a test run for enemy player outlines, and community members aren’t sure how to feel.

During the Modern Warfare 3 beta, players complained about visibility issues that made it difficult to distinguish between friend and foe. Sledgehammer Games responded by placing nameplates over an operator’s head, and this change seemed to solve all problems.

However, the developers don’t plan to stop there and have taken a page from another popular FPS game to achieve their goal. Overwatch features an experimental mode that allows players to try out potential new balance updates, game modes, and rules changes.

To potentially avoid setbacks like we’ve seen in previous Call of Duty titles, MW3 has added its own experimental mode. And the first new feature to be examined is the outlines of enemy players.

While some players argue that this will help improve visibility, others aren’t as keen to get involved.

Across the aisle, a second MW3 player responded: “The visibility in this game is horrible. I have kids squirming and holding crazy head tips without a name tag above their heads.”

Whatever the developers ultimately do, community members want their voices to be heard. “There better be a poll or voting system to give feedback in the game,” demanded a third user.

We will provide an update when the experimental playlist goes live. For now, stay tuned for the rest of our MW3 coverage.
