We've got the lowdown on four possible new modes for the most popular game on the PlayStation Network, Call of Duty 4. Robert Bowling, the Infinity Ward Community Manager, has outlined a few modes on his blog that he and a select few community members tested this weekend. If he and Infinity Ward decide they're worthy, they'll make the game types into a new playlist update for the game. The modes are as follows:
Bare-bones Team Deathmatch
No more excuses. No more blaming Martyrdom or Juggernaut for your lack of skills and kills. Bare-bones Team Deathmatch eliminates the excuses and takes it back to basics with standard Team Deathmatch with no perks, no kill streak rewards. Just you, your skill, and your weapons.
Hardcore HQ requires a lot more than just spamming the HQ position with nades and running in guns blazing. Hardcore HQ encourages more tactical gameplay and communication to win with increased damage, no HUD elements, and friendly fire on.
Multi-bomb Search and Destroy
Multi-bomb Search and Destroy starts every member of the attacking team with a bomb. So everyone has the opportunity to plant if they’re good enough.
Even faster paced Free For Alls, where every bullet counts and playing smart is key for a solid k/d ratio. Standard Free for All rules, with Hardcore mode enabled for extra damage, no HUD, and no health re-gen.
There you have it, all four game types as detailed by Bowling. Which of these modes do you most want to see in an update for the game? Let us know in the comment section below.

I think the bare bone deathmatch is a good idea. I hate losing by one kill because most of our squad gets taking out by an airstrike.

trophie support should be f****** included i have played 17 days on that b**** n get no rewards

They should add Capture the flag. That would be awesome. I know they have domination, but like actual CTF.

No one would ever play hardcore Headquarters. Those COD4 idiots don't do tactics well. They just want to run and gun. I can't wait for SOCOM to come out for the grown ups.

bare bones may make me go back on it, I don't have a problem with the perks though because everyone has them and you get to choose your own so no one should complain about perks. I never liked airstrikes or helicopters because they just end up making the better team better and the worse team worse.

they can add new modes but they can't put in Rumble or Trophies support, i'm callin shenanigans

I know its a shame that most developers can not be bothered or make time to fit in trophies or dualshock 3 in this case. I was not too bothered about trophies until I went on SSHD and then I felt myself compelled to get them all lol I actually enjoyed getting them.
I think IW have said that to implement these features would interfere with their current time plans for updates...yeh right.

They all sound good, I like Harcore Free For All, and Bare Bones Team Deathmatch. Hopefull they make these available
- 4:31am EDT - July 14th, 2008
I'd like to see rumble and trophies instead of this actually...
- 4:55am EDT - July 14th, 2008
psn id: gingo... bare bones team deathmatch and multi bomb search and destroy sound really excellent, donno about the other two but i really wish they would have some trophy support instead of this but sadly not happening

Im with Bare-bones Team Deathmatch
- 5:24am EDT - July 14th, 2008
Why not Bare-Bones Team tactical? that would make my day.
- 5:52am EDT - July 14th, 2008
how would you cal it "team work" if every member of your team has to be out searchin for different people with bombs (multi bomb s&d)..let's face it..70% of people on cod4 is just run & gun anyway so i really don' see this working(...that mode is crap to me..doesn't make sense..just like infinity ward saying.."well um all you loyal loyal ps3 fans um no trophies no dual shock..but we do have new modes tho huh huh" blah....psn id -natakou -let gods rule!!!

The Bare Bones Team Deathmatch seems awesome and so does the Multi Bomb Search and Destroy. Nice additions to an already brilliant game.
- 6:32am EDT - July 14th, 2008
this is wat im talkn bout if they put this out its going to b like a brnd new online game because i nko alot of people that stop playing becuse of spamming grenading noobs. plus itl be more challenging

Bare-bones Team Deathmatch
- 6:49am EDT - July 14th, 2008
maybe while they add these new game modes they can update their game to support trophies.. in-game music... maybe even rumble.. but no, that will never happen.. taking a day out of IW's busy schedule would prolly kill them

these modes look very intresting and can't wait to download them
- 7:25am EDT - July 14th, 2008
multi bomb S/D and Bare Bones TDM sound awesome
