Caution: Equipment that is supposed to make you silent in CoD: Modern Warfare 2 gives you away with a noise

You can improve yourself in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 with a number of perks and skills and customize your way of playing. A popular ability now has a decisive disadvantage in the new CoD part, as players have found out.

What equipment is it? Dead Silence is a field upgrade in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. You can use it in some of the prebuilt loadouts or unlock it at level 30 to build your own Dead Silence classes.

Dead silence ensures that your footsteps are almost inaudible. This is a huge advantage, especially in Modern Warfare 2, because the soldiers stomp much louder here than in most of its predecessors.

In a round you can use the upgrade as soon as it has charged up. In the current Modern Warfare 2 beta, however, players have found that dead silence can give you away:

What sound is that? As seen and heard in the clip on reddit, a loud beeping and hissing announces that dead silence has been activated. The enemy soldier reacts immediately, turning around and turning off the player’s lights.

While you activate the upgrade, you are virtually defenseless for a short time and cannot fire back. Since Dead Silence gives you away with a sound, activating it near enemies is like a death sentence.

“Huge problem with dead silence”

What the players say: In some threads, players warn against using dead silence carelessly. Although the upgrade obscures your movement, it reveals your position when activated. On reddit, some fans joke with: “So much for the ‘silence’ part” and “But at least the death thing works.” But some players are quite annoyed by the decision:

Why? Just why? [Totenstille] already has a long cooldown and a rather short duration if you don’t chain kills. But now you have to activate it a few seconds before contact with the opponent? Really why?

Others argue that this is a method against rushers who attack too heavily from the flanks and can wipe out teams. The situation is similar with the removal of the “slide cancelling”, which currently forces players to use new techniques.

Away from the dead silence, however, the beta is extremely well received. There’s not too much to complain about, the new ground war even reminds fans of the “old Battlefield”. However, there are a few points of criticism:

Modern Warfare 2 beta is well received, but some things are bothering players: “This is like 2019”

We have included the trailer for the current beta here for you:

How do I prevent my death? It’s best to use Dead Silence before launching a flanking attack, not during it. If enemies are already nearby, you only betray yourself.

Since Dead Silence’s duration increases when you land a kill, it pays to play ahead. It is best to use the field upgrade when a UAV is just uncovering the opponents and clean them up from behind one after the other.

You should just watch out for enemies that play “as it’s meant to be”, that is, targeting accesses for a long time.

If you want to get even better, you should definitely set your sound and other options correctly. MeinMMO editor and CoD expert Maik Schneider has put together 10 settings for you that will make you better in Modern Warfare 2.
