This weekend, on Feb 5th, MW3 will be getting a new mode called INFECTED added to the Community Playlists.

When you join a game of INFECTED, 10 seconds after the match begins you will either be chosen as the Infected or placed on the side of the surivors. Each side will be restricted to a specific selection of weapons.

Each time you play INFECTED the selection of weapons available will be different, rotating through multiple loadout options determined by the community suggestions and feedback from Twitter responses to @fourzerotwo.


The game ends when either all players have been turned into infected or the game timer ends. A Survivor’s goal is to stay alive until the game ends, however, if you’re turned Infected, your goal is to turn all other survivors into infected by killing them.

You will receive 100 points per kill (whether you’re a survivor or infected)
Survivors receive an additional 100 points each time an infected kills another survivor.

  • Why would you come out with a new playlist on Super Bowl Sunday?

  • Mushmonkey

    @Span, to compete. They’ll get more people online with a new mode added.

    I love how they ignore the HC HQ requests flying in, but they add a new mode, oh and I bet the new Infected mode will be CORE only.

    Won’t be buying another cod. It’s pathetic.

    Many people will be banned for glitching, Everyone is glitching when they playing Infected..

    • Yeah I was kinda hoping for 3rd person team tactical instead :/

  • Freppy

    In the other hand, the infected ppl going to use a throwing knife to kill the people that is glitching.. ROCK! 😀
