The multiplayer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will include third-person and “Raid” modes.

Also returning is SpecOps.


A third-person playlist and a 3v3 Raid mode are two of the new multiplayer features that Activision and Infinity Ward have announced for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.


Despite being largely a first-person shooter, Modern Warfare 2 will also feature “third person playlists” that are intended to provide “a new tactical method to play multiplayer.” The third person viewpoint provides a considerably wider field of view and, as a result, a greater understanding of your surroundings, which might be a significant departure for COD’s traditional multiplayer.


Raid, a 3v3 mode that emphasises teamwork and collaboration, is another brand-new mode. Although it won’t be accessible at launch, this mode will be available by the end of 2022.


The two-player co-op mode Special Ops is being updated with “large-scale hot zones.” Although Infinity Ward hasn’t provided any other details, it’s to be hoped that the mode will be expanded beyond what was offered in 2019’s Modern Warfare (as it was arguably the weakest part of the package).


The system for customising weapons, Gunsmith, has been enhanced to provide “new chances for modification.” Hopefully, this will prevent us from having to navigate through five separate menus merely to apply a silencer. The UI will also enable smoother switching between weapons.


Last but not least, a new unified security platform has been used to build the Ricochet anti-cheat system that guards Call of Duty, according to Activision. This will enable the developers to update the system more regularly.

Summer Game Fest for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in 2022


The next open beta will provide the first glimpse at Modern Warfare 2’s essential 6v6 multiplayer across a range of maps and modes. It starts on September 16 on PlayStation and September 22 on Xbox and PC. The Valderas Museum, which takes place in Spain, Farm 18, a shoothouse-style map, and Mercado Las Almas, a market, will all be highlighted. Team Deathmatch and Domination will also be featured, but two new 6v6 game types will also be playable: Prisoner Rescue, a hostage-style mode similar to those found in Rainbow Six Siege and Counter-Strike, and Knockout, a no-respawns game type where you must hold a package to win.


Additionally, there will be Ground War-scale maps in the beta that enable 32v32 player numbers. Deathmatch will be fought in invasion mode at this magnitude with additional AI fighters in addition to regular players. The largest matches in the beta will take place on the map Sarrif Bay, which is located in the Republic’s principal port.


You should participate in the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer open beta this weekend to observe how the game is progressing. Additionally, digital pre-orders grant access to the campaign one week earlier if you’re eager for the single-player experience.
