"Veteran with limited HUD."
— In-game Realism description

Realism is a difficulty introduced in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Realism functions identically to the Veteran difficulty, carrying the same damage and weapon mechanics. The only difference, however, is the limited HUD display. Gun display, grenade slots, ammunition value, and friendly NPC nametags are completely absent in this difficulty.
