Modern Warfare 2: A multiplayer feature will be removed

This feature will be dropped: The feature that Infinity Ward has eliminated is destruction in Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer. CoD Vanguard introduced destructible elements on the maps in multiplayer of a Call of Duty for the first time. These were doors, wooden walls, furniture and the like, which could be destroyed by bullets or by running through them. Apparently, this feature will no longer be available in Modern Warfare 2.
