New Makin Day map in Call of Duty 5: Waw


A new Day version of the Makin map came with the latest game update for Call of Duty: World at War.

I kind of like it. The Makin Night map was always kind of fun because you couldn’t see shit but it also could be a very frustrating experience in poor ambient lighting conditions. For example if your screen gets washed out in daylight like mine does you can’t see shadows well at all. That makes for a high-death experience.

Other sweet stuff happened in the update:

in-game statistics! Finally you can see the number of headshots, your archrival, and your K/D spread. This has been sorely lacking since the game was released and I always loved the stat-keeping in Halo 3. It would be extra cool for more info about grenade kills, knife kills and so forth.

Developers report that they fixed the holes in the maps that will prevent glitchers! Those punk kids in the Castle and Roundhouse no longer can hide behind the clipping barriers below a map. It wasn’t clear if they fixed the issues for airborne “elevator” glitches.
