We've just learned about the new vehicles and vehicle mechanics coming with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. Infinity Ward are planning to bring us far more realistic vehicle gameplay, and a new personnel carrier. Here's everything we know so far.

When you consider all the vehicles in Warzone, there's one piece of the puzzle we're obviously missing: an airborne personnel carrier. Well, thankfully, Chinooks are coming. As is the ability to lean out of your vehicle and shoot out the tires of other drivers. What more could we want from the vehicles and driving mechanics coming in Warzone 2 & MW2? Not much. Anyway, here's what we've heard about all the new features coming on 4-wheels.


New Vehicles Confirmed For Modern Warfare II & Warzone 2

There will be 2 new types of vehicles coming with the sequels to Modern Warfare and Warzone: Chinooks and amphibious ground vehicles. The Chinooks have 2 side doors and a back door, and the pilot can set this vehicle to automatically hover in a specific location while they get out of the cockpit. Unfortunately, we don't know anything about the amphibious vehicles yet, besides the fact that they exist.

Realistic Driving Mechanics Coming To Modern Warfare II & Warzone 2

As reported by the ModernWarzone, Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 will have new vehicle mechanics thanks to the engine upgrades, and these include shooting out of tires and leaning out of windows. It sounds like they want to make vehicle play more complex and realistic. Check out all the changes we've heard about so far:

- Leaning out windows
- Climbing on Vehicle rooftops from within the vehicle
- Knocking off doors
- Shooting and blowing out tires
- Healing vehicles at gas stations
- All Vehicles can go into water. If they’re not amphibious they won’t immediately sink. They’ll float for a while before slowly sinking.
- Driving an ATV or other land vehicle into water obviously isn’t ideal, but it will function realistically to where the vehicle will continue to move until the wheels aren’t turning fast enough to move enough water for its weight.

This all sounds like a lot to deliver, and we can't guarantee that they'll be able to get these mechanics into the final version of the game bug-free. But the changes are coming.

It's difficult to tell whether these mechanics will encourage more players to use vehicles or not. We'll withhold judgement for now, but we're certainly excited to test these changes out during the MW2 beta.

That's all there is to say about this aspect of Modern Warfare 2 & Warzone 2. We're learning so much about the new engine for these games every day, and there are loads of new gameplay features and changes to look forward to.
