Norway killer says ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2′ played key role in training
Anders Breivik, the admitted mass murderer in Norway who slaughtered 69 people amid a sudden attack and bombing last year, said in court Thursday that he played Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 to sharpen his aiming skills ahead of the attack, adding that he was previously a 16-hour-a-day World of Warcraft fanatic.
The game itself did not
inspire his attack. However, according to CNN, Breivik said that Modern Warfare 2 helped him improve his “target acquisition” skills when combined with what he called a “holographic aiming device.” It’s not clear what device in particular he was referring to.
“In reality [a gun with a holographic sight] requires very little training to use it in an optimal way,” Breivik said, according to The Guardian. “But of course it does help if you’ve practised using a simulator.”
