New Modern Warfare 2 footage captures the life of a flag runner

And at nearly two minutes, the above footage captures a blessedly long life indeed. Though Modern Warfare 2's parlance gives the "flag runner" an air of nobility and excitement, a more accurate label would stem from the following observation: what you're carrying is not a flag so much as a "shoot me everyone" banner.

Come November 10th, we might opt to play a different role during this mad multiplayer dash through (what appears to be) the set of Michael Bay's latest piece of explodima vérité. Then again, if you have someone classy protecting you, it might be worth the thrill. Provided you don't shoot them in the back (0:44). Oops!
