Is MW3 Vault Edition worth it?


    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launches on November 10 and is now available for pre-order. The standard edition of the game costs $70 and includes the base game along with some pre-order bonuses like the Soap Operator pack and the Zombie Ghost skin. Instead, you can purchase the Vault Edition for $100, which offers other interesting content.

    Should you buy MW3 Vault Edition? (Modern Warfare 3)

    Simply put, you should buy Modern Warfare 3 Vault Edition only if you are interested in unlocking some cosmetic items for multiplayer and Warzone. Here are all the additional rewards you only get when ordering the Vault Edition for MW3:

    • Nemesis Operator Pack– Unlocks an animated operator skin for Captain Price, Ghost, Warden, and Makarov.
    • Weapon Vaults of Destiny: Obtain two weapon vaults, Crimson Fate and Carbon Fate, for the SVA 545 Assault Rifle, AMR9 Submachine Gun, Riveting Shotgun, and Longbow Sniper Rifle. Weapon Vault is basically an advanced weapon blueprint that unlocks all attachments for that weapon and applies the standard pack theme to all of them.
    • BlackCell Battle Pass for one season: This Battle Pass has all the base skins and designs plus its BlackCell variant. A BlackCell Battle Pass costs $30 and also includes 1,100 CP and 50 level skips.

    Being purely cosmetic, not having these rewards will not affect your gameplay at all. Therefore, I suggest going for the $70 base variant for most players, unless you like skins. That said, if you ever decide to unlock these cosmetics after purchasing the standard MW3 version, you can always upgrade to the Vault Edition for $30 in the store.
