Norway Massacre Perpetrator Played Action Games as Part of Training Programme

The perpetrator of the tragic Norway youth camp massacre, which eventually resulted in the horrific death of 93 innocent lives, has reportedly admitted that the massively popular video game Call of Duty- Modern Warfare 2 was a part of his training programme for the "long-planned mission".

Anders Behring Breivik, the 32 year old man behind this horrifying attack, claims himself to be a crusader against Islam, and he noted in detail how he extensively utilised the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 game from Activision and Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft for preparing the horrendous attack.

“I just bought Modern Warfare 2, the game. It is probably the best military simulator out there and it’s one of the hottest games this year. I see MW2 more as a part of my training-simulation than anything else,” Breivik wrote in his 1500 page online manifesto, Yahoo News reports.

Breivik published the manifesto, written in English on the Internet on Friday, giving the world a glimpse at his violent philosophy and his planning and preparations to carry out the onslaught.

"Once you decide to strike, it is better to kill too many than not enough, or you risk reducing the desired ideological impact of the strike," he added.
