Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has a cool time paradox

"Great shot!"

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered campaign early access is out in the wild on PlayStation 4 - and players have found a really cool Easter egg that doubles as a brand new achievement / trophy.

The Time Paradox achievement is new to Modern Warfare's campaign, and involves killing Vladimir Makarov.

Vladimir Makarov was the antagonist in Modern Warfare 2 and 3, so killing him in Modern Warfare 1 creates the time paradox that means the sequels never happened. Doc Brown would love this.

In the remastered version of Modern Warfare, Makarov and Modern Warfare 3 protagonist Yuri are in a jeep in the area at the beginning of the One Shot, One Kill mission - the one where you're charged with sniping Zakhaev. The pair were added to the game for the remaster - they're not in the jeep in the original campaign.

The idea is the Easter egg joins up the Modern Warfare games in the series timeline. Remember, in Modern Warfare 3, there's a flashback scene where you're in the jeep as Zakhaev is shot, seeing the events from Yuri's perspective.

To get the Time Paradox trophy, you need to snipe Zakhaev, as before, then quickly snipe Makarov. Boom! Time paradox created.

The video, below, from our Ian Higton, shows it off in action.

It's a really nice addition to the game from the developers at Infinity Ward and remaster maker Raven Software. More of this please!
