New Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Trailer Focuses On Combat Rigs

See the multiplayer component’s six Combat Rigs in action.

Infinity Ward and Activision continue their efforts to build up hype for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s upcoming multiplayer beta with their latest endeavor which takes the form of a brand new trailer. In the trailer, the developers shine a spotlight on the game’s multiplayer Combat Rigs.

Infinite Warfare’s Combat Rigs operate in a similar manner to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s multiplayer Specialists, offering six unique and clearly defined playstyles intended to cater to different kinds of players. Only three of the six total Combat Rigs will be available during the beta period (Warfighter, Merc, and Synaptic), but the trailer offers a rundown on all six so that players can be prepared when the full game launches next month. Here’s Infinity Ward’s official description of Infinite Warfare’s Combat Rigs:

“Infinite Warfare’s multiplayer introduces the evolution of the Call of Duty loadout system with all-new Combat Rigs. Customize your loadout to your particular playstyle with six different Combat Rigs, each with three distinct Payloads and three unique Traits to supplement your prowess in the field. Choose from the mid-range offensive Warfighter, tactical Stryker, long-range sharpshooter Phantom, heavily defensive Merc, stealthy FTL, or close-quarters Synaptic Combat Rig.”

While it’s too early to know for sure at this point, Infinite Warfare’s Combat Rigs appear to strike a solid balance between the clearly defined yet rigid functionality of Black Ops 3’s Specialists, and the fluid character customization found in entries like Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Players will be able to find out just how fun Infinite Warfare’s Combat Rigs system is when the game launches on November 4th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
