If you are also wondering how the recon drone can be made better, then you have come to the right place. A Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 player just conjoined the drone’s field upgrade and sentry gun killstreak, allowing for a very devastating effect to become a reality.

Redditor Raptrzzz18 uploaded a Modern Warfare 2 clip to the game's official subreddit, pointing out a narrative of ingenuity that even the developers at Infinity Ward could not have expected from fans of the popular title. Basically, players can achieve a secret and funny synergy by doing two things: equipping recon drone field upgrade and unlocking a sentry gun via a seven-killstreak or similar score streak.

The Redditor can be seen deploying the sentry gun and then placing the drone atop it. From there, they would reset the gun's very position which, in turn, converted a former stationary automated machine gun into a low-flying and manually-controlled terror. And mind you, this evolution is more than capable of deleting an entire lobby. Pretty scary so to speak.

The discovery of combining a recon drone with a sentry gun comes as the most recent discovery in the long-standing tradition of stretching the very fiber of the game’s gameplay mechanics. For example, there is the Superman exploit, which basically lets players soar into the air by simply bouncing off of certain locations. This has since been exploited by players ever since its discovery. There is also the so-called G-walking, which allows players to move through the game in total silence. And, oh, the latter continues to be an issue in the game even today.

Season One Reloaded is the first major content patch developer Infinity Ward made for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and it arrived on December 14, 2022. It brought tons of exciting new content, such as new operators, maps like the fan-favorite ones Gunhouse and Shipment, and the Chimera weapon platform. While criticisms of the game continue, most fans are satisfied with the consistency of updates and new content. The studio indeed found a solid formula for conjuring fresh ideas and turning them into a reality.

The rise of new properties, like Titanfall and Overwatch, combined with resurgent properties, like Destiny or Battlefield, make it hard to justify the shrinking number of new ideas in Call of Duty. Those who purchased Infinite Warfare on day one may not relate to anything in this article. But those with less fondness for the franchise, or just expecting COD:IW to at least match the quality of Advanced Warfare or Black Ops 3, should probably turn their attention elsewhere.
  • Cool weapons
  • A decent campaign story
  • Zombies is as fun and weird as ever
  • Multiplayer is too much of a grind for good weapons
  • There's not much originality in the entire package.
