Based on a patent filed by Treyarch veteran, multiplayer lead developer David Vonderhaar, it looks like in the near future Call of Duty it will become even more social. To simplify communication between players operating on different platforms, or to learn from professionals, it seems that soon they will be able to share loadout of the game through social media.
If until a few years ago this did not seem an urgent necessity, thanks to the Gunsmith mode, players have much more control over their equipment and they can both modify it with greater depth, and spy on the adversaries in detail.
The patent description says it is a “method to create and share custom configurations of a video game’s weapons via one or more social network connected.”
Although the purpose of this license is quite clear, this could translate into the ability to upload CoD weapon configurations to social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr (these are among the main social networks named in the patent). Players will be able to use this feature inArmaiolo, a feature contained in Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare, Warzone and Call of Duty: Mobile, give a name to the loadout and its performance.
When the patent is approved, Activision in all likelihood it will activate this feature and add it to its games, allowing you to share loadouts with a few clicks.
