The confirmed feature of Call of duty 4,which is confusing many of its fans, is that of the ‘Sleight of Hand’. Unfamiliar as it sounds, the majority of you here that have played Gears of War are more than familiar with it, and this ‘sleight’ movement is going to become your best friend in the days to come when you play Call of Duty 4.
When playing, and your mowing down insurgents on the streets of some Urban Wasteland, and your clip runs dry; you run for cover, hide, and begin to reload. This is where the ‘Sleight of hand’ movement comes in. It is very similar to an action which can be done in Gears of war, an action which is key for victory. That’s right, I’m talking about the Active Reload. Well ‘Infinity Ward’ have a similar action within their upcoming FPS Call Of Duty 4; which grants you a slightly faster reload time, which could mean the difference between life and death. That’s not just your life, oh no, it could be the life of an enemy which hangs in the balance.
Complicated as it may seem, the sleight of hand movement allows the player to reload slightly faster, with no damage boost (from what we know), but the ability is key to continuously lay fire on the enemy. All is explained in the video, Enjoy.
