Y’know, Guns Really Are Overrated in ‘Call of Duty’

As Call of Duty fans will know, the series doesn't skimp on the ol' actiontastic. There is zero effing around on that score. There's a constant stream of ridiculous setpieces; explosions, skyscrapers falling down around your ears, a hailstorm of bullets flying about nano-inches from your scrote, all that fun stuff.

All that's missing from the testosterone-laden affair is Arnold Schwarzenegger wrestling ten grizzlies in the background, inside a helicopter that's on fire, plummeting towards a shark-infested ocean. That's the sort of relentless, high-body-count action we're talking here. But hey, that comes with the territory in this genre. If there's not a shitload of shooting in your FPS, all you've got is an… FP. And that's not even a thing.

With all of that said, though, sometimes you've got to make a stand against violence in video games. You've got to howl won't somebody think of the children, and decide to play your way through the entirety of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare without killing anyone. According to our buddy Kent Sheely here, anyway.

This is exactly what he's trying to do. The rules are, Sheely writes, ‘I'm only allowed to kill when the game will not let me proceed in any way without doing so (usually in a glorified cutscene, such as the kind that require me to shoot a vehicle before the story can proceed).'

If you've ever earned yourself Metal Gear Solid 3's ‘Peace Walker' trophy, you'll know what a bitch something like this can be. Have an ogle at the Modern Peacewalker playthrough below, and hit Sheely's YouTube channel for more.
