Modern Warfare 3 Leaks Suggest Classic Mini-Map, Ninja Perk, War Mode, and More

A series of new Modern Warfare 3 leaks have hit the internet following our report of the Modern Warfare 3 internal alpha.

According to Twitter user @BobNetworkUK, who has seemingly obtained images of the Modern Warfare 3 alpha, it seems like Sledgehammer Games will be fixing major issues players complained about within Modern Warfare 2.

Specifically, Bob claims that both the classic mini map and Ninja Perk will be returning. According to Bob, perks will return in the form of ‘gear’, with different sets of gear being different perks. For example, one set of boots might give you the ‘Ninja’ perk, whilst another set might give you the ‘Marathon’ perk.

In addition to the Ninja Perk and classic mini-map, Bob also claimed that War mode from Call of Duty: WW2 will be making a return.

As somewhat expected, the game looks remarkably like Modern Warfare 2 in design. After all, the game was intended to be an MW2 DLC for a brief time. It’s worth noting that we’re still 5 months from release and all of the features mentioned are from the game’s internal alpha – So are subject to change.

According to our own reports and leaked images, Modern Warfare 3 is set to feature classic maps from past Call of Duty titles.

But so far, the changes seem like a warm welcome to Call of Duty players. Whether or not the changes are significant enough remains to be seen, but let us know in the comments what you think of the changes.

Modern Warfare 3 is set to launch on November 10 on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
