CoD: Modern Warfare Turned Into Survival Thanks to Mods

A new version of Survival Mode MW3 Mod, a project that adds a single player survival mode to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, has been released.

A modder by the handle SPi-99 (also known as Spi-Hamentsios10) has released a new version of the Survival Mode MW3 Mod project, a modification that adds a Survival Mode for single player to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, modeled on the solutions from CoD: Modern Warfare 3.

Survival Mode MW3 Mod - what it is and why you should play it

The mod resembles horde modes from other games. Our task is to fight off 25 increasingly stronger waves of enemies. Every five of them we have to face the boss in the form of a soldier in juggernaut armor, helicopter or both of these opponents.

Between each wave we have a moment to catch our breath and replenish weapon stocks. The mod offers a wide selection of maps and heavily reworked gameplay mechanics.

Unfortunately, the survival mode is available only for single player. This is due to the limitations of the CoD4 engine, which allows for cooperative play. Using multiplayer as a base for the mod was also out of the question, as the bots in the game are much more primitive than the AI of enemies in the campaign. The creator made his project available in open-source format, hoping that maybe someone else will manage to get around this problem.

What's new in version 1.1

After update 1.1 the number of maps available in survival mode has increased to six.

New version was marked with number 1.1 and brings a lot of changes, the most important of which are:

  1. New map set in Italy
  2. Thorough reworking of the map item loading system, which results in significantly improved optimization.
  3. A nicer interface.
  4. Combo system taken from Modern Warfare 3.

In the future the author wants to add to the mod the weapons from CoD: MW3.

Other notable projects by this author

SPi-99 is a real titan in the modding community of early Call of Duty games. From other projects of this author worth recommending are:

  1. Rooftops Campaign - new story campaign for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, a 1-2 hour campaign in which we direct a British SAS soldier during an operation in Italy.
  2. COD4 Rooftops 2 - a continuation of the above project. New campaign consists of eight missions lasting for about 2,5-3 hours of fun.
  3. The Corner Shop - new mission for Call of Duty 2, in which we defend a hospital from the attack of German forces.
  4. Rooftops Revisited - project recreating some maps from Rooftops in Call of Duty: World at War. Thanks to transferring them to the CoD: WaWengine, it became possible to add a co-op mode.
