    So I've seen this totally new thing on MW2 on YouTube called Thermonuclear War. Some people say it's a brand new online match type and you basically try to capture this area with your teammates to try and earn the team a nuke (try to reach 100 points, and 1 point is awarded every second of capture).

    It looks pretty good, but I don't know if it's fake or not. Seems legit to me. What do you guys think about this?

    It's a hack or something
    I played it a bunch of times. It's actually pretty fun

    It's legit and it's not new. They haven't released it yet but IW's acknowledged it's existence, they just weren't sure about whether it should be added or not. There's something like if you start a private hardcore headquarters game on afghan and pick the rangers as your team it'll say "hardcore thermonuclear war" (although the game is unchanged, just the announcer says it and maybe it says it on the game loadup too).

    Anyways a game mode where everyone automatically takes a death at the end seems stupid to me. And since it's fairly similar to headquarters, and headquarters is my least favorite game mode, I don't think it's for me.

    Also this probably deserves to be clumped into the MW2 discussion thread.

    I know, but if they officially released it, then everybody would just start camping and noob tubing.

    Yeah, true. But I at least see a few people running around killing.

    This isn't anything new. I've played it a few times since December. It's pretty fun, although people just throw nades / RPG the capturing zone.
