A new Modern Warfare II trailer confirms the return of the Riot Shield

The Riot Shield is one of the most feared weapons in Call of Duty history.

It's also not available to use in most Call of Duty games.

For some reason, Infinity Ward wants to bring the Riot Shield to Modern Warfare II, much to the chagrin of fans.

You can catch a glimpse of the annoying series mainstay in the Campaign Early Access teaser for Modern Warfare II.

If it's any consolation, Modern Warfare II's multiplayer likely isn't going to let players wield weapons with the Riot Shield. 

This was the case with the original Modern Warfare II from 2009; the SMG and Riot Shield combo was exclusive for the AI in the single-player campaign.

We'll find out more about Modern Warfare II on the 15th at the Call of Duty Next event as well as the subsequent multiplayer beta.
