Although walking around in the giant mechs does look cool.. until the novelty wear off that is...
In none of the MW series was what you see in the video 'normal. Well, unless you were playing with a bunch of noobs online.
In the older games, you could expect DFA's, small fast mechs like the Orion with jump jets and enough firepower to take out an Atlas if skilled enough. And a full salvo of missles wouldn't kill you unless you were already seriously damaged.
