Modern Warfare 3 May Not Have a PS5 Platinum, But It Does Have Gyro Aiming 1

The upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has disappointed some players because it technically doesn’t have a Platinum Trophy on the PS5. In an unusual move, its gongs have been added as DLC to last year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which means there’s no way for developer Sledgehammer Games to add PlayStation’s most prestigious pot. Awkwardly, the PS4 version does have a Platinum.

While this may be frustrating, hands-on reports on Reddit reveal that the campaign has gyro aiming with the DualSense this time out. Previous releases had added the motion-controlled input method to multiplayer modes, but it had remained conspicuously absent from the single player story. This is, refreshingly, no longer the case.

For those who don’t know, gyro aiming effectively allows you to finetune your crosshairs by physically tilting your controller in your hand. The PS5 has pretty good motion control technology built into it, so this provides a surprising amount of additional accuracy – comparable with, say, a mouse pointer when you’re playing on PC.
