MW2 fans slam ‘trash’ Black Cell smoke grenade effects


    While Modern Warfare 2’s BlackCell offering has been well-received by the community as an “instant buy”, there is one part that is somewhat disappointing.

    Before the release of Season 6 Black Cell, players noticed that it included a smoke grenade skin for the first time. This raised alarm bells from some fans, who are convinced that Activision is trying to cash in on every aspect of Call of Duty.

    Well, now that the smoke grenade is out and available, the community realized that the throwable actually has special in-game animations.

    Unfortunately, this isn’t enough to restore the Smoke Grenade skin’s reputation, with players calling the special effects “Trash“And “Lame

    When it comes to Black Cell, Activision is sticking with the black and gold theme, which fans are starting to get bored of, prompting designers to get more creative.

    One user explained that it “It would have been better if it had darkened the smoke and then shone the gold,Matching the Black Cell theme.

    Either way, this is just the first Smoke Grenade skin to enter the CoD franchise and based on the cosmetics’ past trajectory, there’s bound to be more as they make their way into Modern Warfare 3.
