Call of Duty‘s latest installment Infinite Warfare is scheduled to release on the 4th of November and the game will include a permadeath mode.

The game, which is set in space, will have a campaign mode spanning the solar system. Earlier, we had learned that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has a nice weapon crafting system, combat rigs and an amazing multiplayer which is themed in 80s style Zombies in Spaceland.

A couple of days ago, the developer of the game, Activision published a post in their blog which details about the weapons, side missions and modes of the game.

Here are some excerpts from the post:

SIDE MISSIONS

During the campaign, you will have the chance to take part in optional side missions that will allow you to earn upgrades to enhance combat. These upgrades will persist throughout successive playthroughs and include:

  • Suit Upgrades: Faster weapon swap, faster reload, less flinch, faster health regeneration, enhanced focus, an Electro Knife for more powerful melee attacks, and more.
  • Jackal Upgrades: Enhance the multi-role Jackal fighter jet with new weapons, better thrusters, stronger armor, and even decorate your ride with new nose art.

SPECIALIST MODE

This mode is unlocked after beating the game on any difficulty. It is intensely realistic and not for the faint of heart. But if you feel brave enough, soldier on with these tips.

  • You can only heal with Nano Shots, there is no health regeneration in this mode.
  • Helmets are your only protection from headshots. They will take permanent damage and will need to be replaced.
  • Both Nano Shots and helmets take up equipment slots, so remember to equip them in your loadout on the Retribution before each level.
  • Master the lean from behind cover mechanic, which will be critical for your survival. Approach the edge of cover while standing or crouching, and aim down sights when you see a chevron appear on the side of your crosshairs. You will auto-pop from behind cover as you ADS.
  • If you get shot in the legs, it will impact your movement. If you get shot in either arm, it will impact your ability to use equipment or aim down sights.

MULTIPLAYER

The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer experience offers challenging, fast-paced combat that will keep you on your toes. Here are some tips to help give you an edge.

  • Keep an eye out for combos of Perks and Rig Traits that synergize well. For example, use the Merc Rig with the Man at Arms Trait, equip the Momentum Perk, and use an LMG to get up close and personal with surprising speed for a heavy gun.
  • Prototype weapons come in common, rare, legendary, and epic tiers. In Infinite Warfare, you can obtain these in more ways than ever. You can use Salvage, the crafting currency you earn while you play, to craft Prototype weapons that come with new cosmetic and gameplay perks.
  • You can also earn Salvage through daily login bonuses, from Mission Teams, and from Supply Drops. If you happen to receive an item you already own in a Drop, it will automatically be “burned” and converted to Salvage.
  • Mission Teams give you unique challenges that allow you to get exclusive rewards, including Prototype weapons that are only available through Mission Teams. Each Team has a specialization that will encourage you to try different game modes that you have not tried before – and reward you for mixing it up.
