Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Easter Egg Calls Out Players Who Keep Shooting the Baby

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Easter Egg Calls Out Players Who Keep Shooting the Baby

Players will find themselves given a special message from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare if they keep shooting a baby during a particular mission.

Heavy spoilers ahead for a mission in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has a mission, considered one of the best in the game, in which players perform a raid on a house in Camden Town. The mission require stealth and precision as you check rooms for potential targets. In one room there’s a mother who immediately runs over to a crib to pick up her crying baby.

If you shoot the mother, she dies and the baby continues to cry as you get berated by your fellow soldiers. One of them picks the baby up and puts it back in the crib if it was taken out. At this point the most logical option would be to simply move on. Or you can shoot the baby instead.

Choosing the later will immediately give you a Game Over and kick you back to the last checkpoint. But for players who decide to keep killing the baby, you get a special message. Here’s the video of that posted by YouTuber Bechrisslol.

[Warning: While there is no gore or death actually shown, it’s still rather disturbing content]:

For those who choose not to watch, the Game Over screen will say after multiple attempts “Are You Serious?” At no point is the death shown in any capacity but the heavy implication is there. It’s interesting to note that this Easter Egg was created with the knowledge that players would not only try to shoot the baby, but try it multiple times. I suppose the developers really know their audience.

Prior to its launch just a few days ago, Activision and Infinity Ward announced its post-launch monetization plans for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare today, and it’s a plan that many will appreciate. First that post-launch maps will be made available for free. And instead of using loot crates or boxes, Activision says it will be moving to a Battle Pass system.

It was also found before launch that at least 175 GB of free hard drive is required to download the game on PC, which is an insane amount of space.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launched just two days ago on October 25th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
