Call of Duty: XP had Modern Warfare 3, paintball events, a freaking Burger Town, sumo wrestling, ziplining and a “jeep experience.” Out of all the activities, I did not expect the jeep experience to be the best thing out of the whole XP event.
Basically, the jeep experience is like Star Tours from Disneyland, expect we were really in a jeep going off-roading and making super sharp turns while real actors were shooting off guns outside. The best part of the whole thing? We were actually made to get out of the jeep and run through a building with real Navy Seals as part of the experience. Guns firing off blanks were going off right next to our heads as we were tasked to help the Navy Seals recover a laptop containing intel.
Once we cleared the building and captured the objective, we got back into the jeep and drove back to the XP compound. It’s was definitely a rush, needless to say. Special thanks to Machinima’s Matt Dannevik for filming the video above and to Adam Kovik for being a handsome bastard.
