While once having a positive sacrificial meaning, now polluted by Activision's knack for an attempt to make death less fail and more win. Martyrdom was an intended military training program first seen in one of Activision's popular video game titles Call of Duty 4 as a simulation for a possible military technique to increases the chances of winning a war after failing. Their program would teach our soldiers to always have a grenade ready, pin pulled, in case they died by an onslaught of P-90 sub-machine guns, to get satisfy their already emotionless mind's need for revenge.

While Call of Duty 4 showed tremendous progress to the number of players using the perk, they also noticed the perk-users' average IQ stood on average below room temperature. This soon got worse and all attempts to shoot the opposing force ceased, since dying made the game easier increasing your number of kills masking your dull wits.

The data collected showed that even the noobiest player, noobtube and all, can kill the best hacker making citizens more and more equal. The military quickly backed out to avoid promoting communism among their soldiers representing America and avoid the title: "Asshat."

Activision has now turned to GM for a possible investment.
Turn off Martyrdom!

One of the Call of Duty 4 perks online. This is where you drop a grenade once you die. Mostly pisses people off.
I freaking hate it when the other players have the Martyrdom perk in their class. I never get away in time.

1) The act of killing yourself to provide motivation to others.

2) A cowardly and sneaky act of violence against an unsuspecting target. This ideology is brought on mostly the wife beating pedophiles in the religion of peace i.e. Islam.
Guy 1: Those Sept 11th hijackers claim they were martyr's and expected 99 virgins at the pearlly gates.
Guy 2: What vigin would want to be with a mass killer? Why 99... in Heaven? Stupid ass mofos.

The most freaking annoying thing in the world. A perk in COD4 and a deathstreak in COD6, the user drops a live grenade which pisses people off, typically knifers.
