For those realism lovers who are still clinging to the hope that Call of Duty could revert back to its classic feel rather than the arcade style that it is steering into, this one is for you.

Realism is quickly becoming a distant memory in CoD, what with countless immersion-breaking and quirky skins alongside time-lapsing weaponry, but with Warzone and DMZ, there's still room for LTMs to bring this feeling back.

And that is exactly what one player has designed, as a Redditor has nabbed that concept of the unreleased UNRECORD game and applied it to Warzone.

In April 2023, a trailer aired for UNRECORD, which intends to be a bodycam-focused FPS title where players will work out of the lens of a camera attached to their character.

The Unreal Engine 5 title caused some controversy on social media as the difference between a video game and real life was indistinguishable. But when combined with Call of Duty's cheesy gameplay, maybe there is scope for this POV. Loving the idea, one player has created a concept LTM based on this premise.

User u/jamcowl took to Reddit to show off a montage of gameplay in which they turned off hitmarkers, crosshairs, and centre dots and ramped up motion blur, screen shake, and depth of field. All of which resulted in a rather realistic look to the game.

Combined with a bodycam-esque filter to the POV, with blackout-out corners as if looking through a lens, the concept stunned fans. There are now calls for this to be immediately implemented in Warzone.

The concept maximised the difficulty of viewing, forcing concentration at every second, akin to a real-life warzone. The editor confessed that this style of gameplay, especially in a game against Warzone players kitted out to the maximum, was difficult. Still, fans love the idea of putting everyone on the same playing field with an LTM.

Taking to the Reddit replies, responses like "Phenomenal," "This looks so cool," and "That's gritty, I love it!" poured in. "This is awesome! Even though it genuinely made me feel motion sick," joked another fan.

Whether or not a Bodycam LTM would even be possible is unknown. But as Warzone could be about to take inspiration from other titles for some rather big changes to the gunsmith, why not in terms of gameplay too?
