Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer Gunfight 2v2 Mode Revealed — Details and Impressions

Published

on

During a Twitch stream today, popular content creators revealed a first look at the brand new Gunfight mode coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare MP this October 25. 

Back in late May, during our trip to Infinity Ward, we had a chance to see and also play the new Gunfight mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. 

In this post, we’re breaking down the exact details on how the Gunfight mode works in MP and some of our impressions of this mode after playing it. 

Gunfight Mode Details 

Here’s the rundown of how Gunfight works in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: 

  • Gunfight is only 2v2 
  • Gunfight features specially designed maps for this mode only. Three maps have been shown today: 
    • King: Interior of warehouse
    • Pine: Dense Forest 
    • Stack: Desert Container Yard
  • There is no create a class in the Gunfight mode. 
  • The load outs are set for each player, and the load outs that players play with change every 2 rounds. 
  • There is 6 rounds total per match 
  • When the match starts, the timer gives you 40 seconds to win the round
  • If after 40 seconds there is no winner, a flag appears on the map. Players have to run to the flag and defend it for 3 seconds to secure the win. 
  • If no one can defend the flag within the new time limit, the round will end and the team with the most total health left wins
  • There is 100 health per player, combined for 200 health between the two players
  • You do not heal in this mode and auto-health regeneration is disabled for this mode. The health amount is set. 
  • The top of the screen shows the combined health per team, allowing you to see how much damage you have done and how much health your team has left. 

Impressions

As mentioned above, we had a chance to play and checkout this mode at Infinity Ward back in May. For those of you who loved Face-Off in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, this mode is for you. It’s the perfect mode for those grudge matches to take on friends in a 2v2 action. 

This mode has set classes already, so all players are on the level playing field and have an equal opportunity at winning from just the arsenal available. There’s no opportunity to create your own class going in to Gunfight, which may be a negative aspect for some players, but having set classes really tests the skills of each player’s ability with all of the weapons. During our play session, there were random set ups given — going from pistols to rocket launchers to use. 

Playing the mode at Infinity Ward, it’s clear that this mode is designed to be a fun, hectic gameplay that fans can play when taking a break from the traditional MP experience that the title offers. And it’s designed to have maps that are separately built for this mode only, which again adds more content to the overall game experience — similar to what Face-Off did for Modern Warfare 3. Face-Off allowed for 1v1, 2v2, or 3v3, but Gunfight is only 2v2 which works for the mode. 

Infinity Ward did not answer a question on the total maps available in the game overall across MP, but there’s 3 Gunfight maps confirmed for now. 

Gunfight is just a small portion of the entire MP Mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It’s a single mode, and the focus of today’s reveal. One of the things you will notice is that the realism aspect discussed for the campaign mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare does carry over to MP as well.

And by the way, all of the NBA and NFL events you’ve seen this year where athletes were playing Modern Warfare, you only saw 2 players on a team because they were playing Gunfight. 

The full reveal of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer will take place on August 1 at 10AM PT.

How to fix Warzone “friends list not showing” glitch

We have a couple of easy and effective methods to fix Warzone’s glitch that makes it so that your friends list doesn’t show anyone online.

Warzone Pacific friends list not showing glitch

Warzone and Modern Warfare’s long-standing “friends list not showing” glitch that prevents players from showing up on your friends list is still a constant menace after the Pacific update. Here are some solutions to hopefully fix this glitch for you in both Call of Duty games.

It’s undoubtedly frustrating when the only thing you want to do is play a game online, and certain factors are preventing you from doing so. Aside from obvious internet connectivity worries, there is also Warzone’s infamous “Checking for update” bug and Xbox players not even being able to launch the game.

Another issue that continues to haunt players in Warzone Pacific is a glitched friends list that doesn’t allow you to see anyone else online even though they are, and leaves you unable to invite them. As always, we have some ways that might be able to aid you and resolve the problem.

You’ll know if the problem is affecting you because when you select Warzone’s social tab and try to inspect your friends, you’ll be hit with “friends list not showing.”

Just to double-check that your friends are indeed online, just quickly open up your general friends list for the console or platform you’re playing on first to check. If they are showing as online, then use our methods to hopefully make them show online on Call of Duty too.

Here are the most efficient ways to get around the glitch.

#1 – Restart Warzone or Modern Warfare

The classic “have you tried turning it off and on again?” Not only is it a way to fix a computer, but it could also cure your temperamental version of Warzone Pacific.

Here’s how you can try this out:

  1. Simply close Warzone or Modern Warfare
  2. Restart your respective platform
  3. Boot up Warzone or Modern Warfare
  4. Check to see if it now appears

#2 – Link Warzone with Discord

Many players have reported great success by using the official Discord service to link up with their friends and enter games together.

To do link up with Discord:

  1. All players must have their Discord activity status set to ‘On’
  2. Make sure you have connected your ‘Battle.net‘ account to Discord
  3. Have everyone launch Warzone or Modern Warfare
  4. Then all players should join from the same Discord

Plus, Discord is expected to arrive on PlayStation this year, so it will be even easier to link up with friends cross-platform.

#3 – Create a Group

Another possible workaround is for one person to create a Group, customize it, and invite everyone to join.

This is how to create a Group in Warzone:

  1. Go to the ‘Social’ tab
  2. Head to the ‘Groups’ tab
  3. Press to ‘Create a Group’
  4. Create a ‘Group Name’ and ‘Group Tag’
  5. Wait to see if it’s approved
  6. With a successful Group, invite friends via the Group option

#4 – Turn off Crossplay

We’ve already covered extensively how you can turn off crossplay in Warzone and why you should consider doing it. On top of this, it’s also been doing the trick for some people with Warzone and Modern Warfare game invites.

To do this, simply:

  1. Make your way into Warzone’s or Modern Warfare’s ‘Options’ setting
  2. Select your Account
  3. Switch the ‘Crossplay’ function from enabled to disabled
  4. Restart the game
  5. See if it’s worked and whether it has or hasn’t, turn Crossplay back on, and see if the result changes with it

#5 – Simply wait

The easiest and most straightforward idea to try, leave it and hope it fixes itself. Believe it or not, waiting 30-60 seconds could actually fix it and could save you a lot of time than the above fixes.

It won’t work for everyone, but it’s another solution to try and help with this persisting, long-term problem in Warzone and 2019’s Modern Warfare.

Do CoD Points carry over across games?

The good news is that your CoD Points will transfer across your Call of Duty games, as they are linked to your Activision account.

Players who still have CoD Points in their account from Black Ops Cold War don’t need to worry, as they will automatically be in your account when turning to Vanguard.

What can I buy with COD Points?

Call of Duty’s currency is used to primarily buy two things: the Battle Pass for the current season and Bundles containing a variety of items.

Battle Pass

Vanguard Season 1 Battle Pass

A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.

Vanguard and Warzone Pacific are currently in Season 1 at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.

It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 1, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough CoD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.

You can buy the Vanguard & Warzone Season 1 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods:

Bundles

Attack on Titan bundle CoD

The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.

The collectibles you can expect to find are Calling Cards, Emblems, Operator Skins, Weapon Blueprints, Weapon Charms, and more.

CoD devs confirm “unplayable” Modern Warfare is finally going to get fixed

Modern Warfare was branded “unplayable” after the Warzone Pacific update broke the game, but Call of Duty devs have now promised fixes.

Published

Although two years old, Modern Warfare still has a dedicated player base who were furious after December 8’s Warzone Pacific update made the game “unplayable” for many. A month later, CoD’s developers have finally confirmed they’re working on fixing it.

Call of Duty: Warzone is still tied to Modern Warfare so, whatever happens in Warzone, affects Modern Warfare. This has caused several issues in the past, with players unable to change their loadout mid-game and the FMJ Perk being broken.

It appeared to only get worse with the Warzone Pacific Season 1 update which completely broke Modern Warfare. It was labeled “literally unplayable” as players were suffering a plethora of bugs and crashes, and some couldn’t even launch the game.

Call of Duty’s developers have finally acknowledged the issues and confirmed they’re working on fixing them.

Modern Warfare players have been complaining that Modern Warfare is completely broken since the new Warzone map arrived. They’ve said that they can’t complete a match because of disconnects and crashes, and missing data packs are stopping some from launching the game entirely.

Raven Software hadn’t acknowledged the issues, and Modern Warfare players were worried they’d been left out to dry. But, Call of Duty’s devs have now addressed the concerns.

“Our teams are hard at work addressing the issues that are being experienced across Vanguard, Warzone, and Modern Warfare,” tweeted the Call of Duty account on January 13, 2022.

They said that “updates are being deployed as quickly as possible” but gave no timeframe for Modern Warfare’s fixes being implemented.

Many players were delighted that their complaints had finally been acknowledged, but said “actions speak louder than words” and other statements to that effect.

We’ll just need to wait and see how and when Call of Duty plans to fix Modern Warfare’s serious issues. They also recommend you follow Infinity Ward’s account, so perhaps these updates will come from Infinity Ward.

You can also check out everything we know about CoD 2022, which is all but confirmed to be titled “Modern Warfare II.”
