Whether your strategy involves only killing your enemies with one specific weapon or sticking to getting your kills through a personally crafted routine, the team at Infinity Ward has implemented a new way to turn your eccentricities into badges of honor.

"Another new thing that we added was the call sign," said Infinity Ward's lead multiplayer designer Todd Alderman Tuesday night. "You might have seen this in some of the videos that we’ve released. The call sign is another way to show off how cool you are, make yourself famous."

During his feature presentation at Infinity Ward's grand unveiling for "Modern Warfare 2" multiplayer features, Alderman went over what call signs will mean, and how players will be able to obtain them.

"You have an emblem, which is the symbol that you unlock, and you have a title, which is an image with some words," he explained. "The way you play is the more things you do, the more things you’re going to unlock for that thing."

The call signs will come from an evolving set of hundreds of distinctions that Infinity Ward plans on updating as its community engages "Modern Warfare 2" multiplayer gameplay.
