** "Remember - switching to your pistol is always faster than reloading."[[labelnote:Explanation]]A tutorial quote from Gaz in the original ''Modern Warfare''. Inexplicably popular to be used when describing the situation of reloading versus switching to your pistol.[[/labelnote]]

* CommonKnowledge: There seems to be a popular assumption that the entire trilogy of games involves the player fighting with Middle Eastern Muslim bad guys, when discussing politics surrounding the game. While there are Middle Eastern Muslim bad guys, the games actually have you primarily fighting Russians, and Middle Eastern bad guys are only really present in the first game, having greatly reduced roles in the second game and being practically absent in the third. It was really the Modern Military Shooter genre that took off with the Middle Eastern Muslim bad guys idea, and ''Modern Warfare'' was unfortunately associated with this idea due to popularizing the genre.

*** And then the game adds new supply drop weapons not found in the original ''Modern Warfare''. While one plus is that these weapons can be earned outside of supply drops, it was still a massively contentious issue as the developers originally promised that there will be no weapons in supply drops for MWR.
*** ''And then'' 7 months after ''Infinite Warfare'' came out, the game officially became a standalone that is worth 40$, when it was originally a 20$ extra to ''Infinite Warfare''.

*** ''And then'' 7 months after ''Infinite Warfare'' came out, the game officially became a standalone that is worth 40$, when it was originally a 20$ extra to ''Infinite Warfare'', and without the 15$ DLC mentioned above, and after [[https://gamerant.com/call-of-duty-modern-warfare-remastered-not-sold-sperately/ Activison promised]] that the game is only available through ''Infinite Warfare''.

** There are an absolute buttload of internet outrage centered around the treatment of ''Modern Warfare Remastered'', coming almost one after another:
*** For starters, the game is originally (this will be important later) packaged with the fan-disliked ''Infinite Warfare'', the details of which are described in BrokenBase.

Remastered'':
*** For starters, First, the game is was originally (this will be important later) packaged with as a preorder bonus to the fan-disliked ''Infinite Warfare'', the details of which are described in BrokenBase.



*** And then the game adds new weapons not found in the original ''Modern Warfare'', causing a large BrokenBase as players debate if this is the correct path for this new game or if it just another attempt at making the game more appealing and live longer (to be fair, none of them are in supply drops, but the idea still feels troublesome to players since the developers originally promised that the gameplay will stay true to the original ''Modern Warfare'', which new weapons obviously break).
*** ''And then'' 7 months after ''Infinite Warfare'' came out, the game officially became a standalone that is worth 40$, when it was originally a 20$ extra to ''Infinite Warfare''. Players became angry again since many believed that this is what Activision should have done originally, instead of forcing it on ''Infinite Warfare''.

*** Then, the game treats itself as if it is already a standalone game, including [[ScrappyMechanic supply drops]] and even a DLC called the Variety Map Pack, which is an old DLC from the original ''Modern Warfare'' but also has its price bumped up from 10$ to 15$. Suffice to say, the idea that players have to pay extra for a game that already cost them extra to get feel insulting to many.

** Montage Parodies. These are parodies of overedited multiplayer montages, usually consisting of poor editing, loud dubstep music, overexaggeration of mundane topics, and memes of every kind. ''Modern Warfare 2'' was the originator of such parodies, and the video edit style had since stayed and persisted into a [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/montage-parodies meme subculture]]. The game itself contributed a few common elements to the meme, like the quickscoping Intervention, the [=FaZe=] clan symbol, the MLG symbol, and the hitmarker.
