10 features we want in online shooters

7) Free running

It may not be very realistic to give every player the coordination of a Cirque du Soleil acrobat, but we’ve played Assassin’s Creed and we know what we want. Rather than casually climbing over objects like no one is firing bullets at our faces, we want to take running leaps... especially through glass windows, there’s nothing cooler than jumping through a glass window.

Let us scale walls and climb to places we’d normally find unreachable. We’ll just scour the game for glitches that allow us to access these forbidden hiding spots anyway, so why not make a feature out of it?
