For those who miss the game's distinctive sound effects, this is a way to replicate a small part of the original impression.

Though the setting may have been out for a few months, many players may have missed it or paid little attention when it was introduced. But for those looking for a way to relive some of their Modern Warfare nostalgia, this is an easy and straightforward way to get closer to the original title. 

Modern Warfare 2 will always hold a special place in the hearts of many gamers. With this setting, players can bring back a small part of the original experience and enjoy the classic hit marker sound effects from the 2009 title, even in the current series.
