This Call of Duty-themed haptic feedback vest brings you closer to the battlefield

Haptics and sound accessories specialist Woojer has partnered with Activision to create a surprising product that will amplify your Call of Duty experience. Fans can grab a Call of Duty-branded Woojer haptic vest and strap, which is releasing just in time for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

The limited-edition wearables, which are variations of Woojer’s usual line of haptic gear, feature a green camouflage pattern. Both have a wireless output and can be connected to Bluetooth headsets with up to 7.1 channel surround sound to create haptic vibrations on your body. That means that you’ll feel every shot you fire — and the ones that hit you.

Woojer describes the haptic supplements as tech created “to provide the most immersive gaming experience possible.” It states that its strap, in particular, “transfers the feeling of sound of every gunshot, footstep, explosion, or even delicate raindrops, as if one is actually there.” The vest takes it a bit further, focusing the haptics in different body areas.

“Woojer’s precise audio-based haptics work right out of the box with an advanced DSP algorithm to detect the sound type and its direction as encoded in the audio stream,” Woojer says in a blog post. “The Woojer device then replicates the sound feeling onto the user’s body at a single location if they are using the strap, and from six unique locations if wearing the vest.”

If you ever wanted to go that extra mile with your Call of Duty haptics, Woojer’s set of haptics can be preordered on its site for a limited time only, starting at $179.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Season 3 will reintroduce the iconic Intervention sniper -- now known as the FJX Imperium. This sniper will feature fast aim down sights speeds, easy handling, and looks exactly like the Intervention sniper from 2009's Modern Warfare 2. This news comes by way of a video shared by Charlie Intel, which features footage of the famous sniper in action, along with a new 6v6 map called Pelayo's Lighthouse.

Modern Warfare 2’s new season is proof Call of Duty needs to take a year off
Main characters of Modern Warfare 2.

The eagerly anticipated second season of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has a lot in store. It'll incorporate a new small-scale Warzone 2.0 battle royale map called Ashika Island, along with new DMZ features and a fresh set of weapons to try out. While Season 2 certainly has lots of exciting new content in the pipeline, things are looking dire for Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, as very few new features are planned for the update.

Sure, it's nice that Warzone 2.0 and DMZ are getting so much attention during Season 2, but the latest update is a grim sign for the overall life cycle of Modern Warfare 2 -- a game that seems to have been left in the dust as Activision sprints on to its next project,

If you're trying to unlock the top camos for every weapon or rank up your Operator in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, this weekend is going to be the best time to grind. With the launch of Season 01 Reloaded comes the perfect storm for quick and easy leveling -- a Double XP weekend and the return of the iconic (and chaotic) Shipment map.

The Shipment map is one of the smallest to ever be featured in Call of Duty. It's set on a cargo ship filled with shipping containers and there's virtually no cover except for a few containers you can enter.
