The fan-favorite Gunfight mode from 2019’s Modern Warfare is expected to return in Modern Warfare 2, but it won’t be available at launch.
On June 8 the floodgates of Modern Warfare 2 information officially flew open as Infinity Ward revealed a ton of details about their upcoming Call of Duty game. Players received a huge breakdown of what to expect from the Modern Warfare 2 campaign, as well as the franchise’s new water mechanics.
However, that’s not all as Call of Duty fans also got the news that a classic Modern Warfare mode is set to return in the sequel. That’s right, Gunfight will make its way to Modern Warfare 2 as a post-launch addition.
Modern Warfare’s Gunfight game mode was Call of Duty in its most raw state. This mode would pit players against each other on tiny maps designed for close combat. Two teams of two players would face off in an attempt to kill the opposing team in 40 seconds or less.
Each team would use the same class that would change every two rounds. The first team to win six rounds would be declared the winner. Players enjoyed the mode for its reliance on gun skill as the measure of success.
Fans of Gunfight can rejoice as it seems the mode will make its way to Modern Warfare 2 post-launch. While we don’t know when this will be, it’s understandable that Infinity Ward will attempt to primarily showcase their new Knockout and Prisoner’s Rescue modes.

Modern Warfare 2 leak details DMZ mode gameplay & objectives
Although Modern Warfare 2’s DMZ is still unofficial, dataminers have reportedly uncovered the mode’s objectives.
There’s a ton of hype over the leaked Tarkov-inspired ‘DMZ’ mode that’s coming to Modern Warfare 2, and it appears Warzone Mobile’s game files have revealed the mode’s gameplay and objective.
Modern Warfare 2 arrives later in 2022, bringing a globe-trotting campaign, Spec Ops, and Warzone 2.0. But there’s still one mode that Infinity Ward have yet to confirm, although a ton of leaks and rumors surround it — DMZ.
Short for ‘demilitarized zone,’ DMZ is set to be Call of Duty’s answer to extraction-based games such as Escape from Tarkov. Images of Modern Warfare 2’s maps leaked through Warzone Mobile’s game files, and this has also revealed DMZ’s gameplay and objectives.
Included in these game files were a ton of strings for DMZ, detailing the missions and objectives Modern Warfare 2 players will have to undertake. These include searching marked areas for radioactivity, destroying supplies, finding intel, and extracting.
It appears that radioactivity will play a large part in DMZ, where players will need to secure radioactive material and “acquire Geiger counters from the cache.”
Players will also need to rescue hostages and defend safes they’ve opened from Hostiles. It sounds like the DMZ mode will be absolutely chock-full of content, offering players even more objectives than Escape from Tarkov.
It still appears it will still have a similar gameplay loop though, where players have to “extract safely.” The mode hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, but insider Tom Henderson has claimed that it won’t be free to play and will launch with Modern Warfare 2.
With the multiplayer reveal and beta still to come, we should know much more about the mode in the run-up to October 28. In the meantime, be sure to check out how to get the free Final Judgement bundle in Warzone with Modern Warfare 2

Modern Warfare 2 insider claims new DMZ mode will not be free to play
Renowned leaker Tom Henderson has claimed that Modern Warfare 2’s DMZ mode will not be a free to play experience upon release.
Information concerning Modern Warfare 2’s DMZ mode continues to arise prior to the game’s October 28 release. Amidst confusion surrounding what the mode will entail, leaker Tom Henderson has claimed that DMZ will not be free to play.
Call of Duty fans got their first look at what to expect from Modern Warfare 2 during the Campaign gameplay reveal that took place at Summer Game Fest. Furthermore, leaks have also revealed images of Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer maps.
While new information continues to shed light on the upcoming Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare 2’s DMZ mode remains shrouded in mystery. Despite the lack of information concerning the mode, a report from Tom Henderson suggests that DMZ will not be free to play.
The DMZ mode will be a fresh experience for Call of Duty fans as Escape from Tarkov-like extraction-based gameplay is set to take center stage.
On July 4, Henderson published another report that brings players one step closer to understanding what the DMZ mode will entail.
It seems the mystery surrounding the mode has led to several false rumors, including one that had players believing DMZ would be a free-to-play experience like Warzone.
Henderson claims that this expectation is false: “Although the future of the DMZ could become free-to-play, that’s currently not the plan. Instead, the DMZ will be tied to Modern Warfare 2 as another mode.”
The industry insider does not rule out the possibility of DMZ eventually adopting a free to play model, but at launch, it will be considered a mode available to players who purchase Modern Warfare 2.
As the October 28 release date for Modern Warfare 2 approaches, inaccurate rumors should cease, while clarity over the game’s modes like DMZ is expected to grow.

Every leaked Modern Warfare 2 weapon: Assault Rifles, SMGs, Snipers
A ton of Modern Warfare 2’s weapons have reportedly been leaked, so here’s every MW2 weapon we know of so far.
CoD players are desperate to see which weapons we can expect to see in Modern Warfare 2 later this year, and a ton of the weapons have reportedly leaked through Warzone Mobile’s files.
Modern Warfare 2019 fans absolutely loved the weapons and their realistic animations, and Modern Warfare 2 is set to bring the same level of quality.
Modern Warfare 2 weapons list leaked
Dataminer ‘Reality’ has claimed to reveal the Modern Warfare 2019 weapons we can expect to return in Modern Warfare 2 as well as the brand-new additions.
There are also some brand-new weapons found in the game files, such as the STG A3 and the Bryson 800. You can check out the full list of leaked Modern Warfare 2 weapons below:
- Bryson 800
- STG A3
- Lockwood 725
- Revive Pistol
- Lachmann Sub
- RAAL MG
- .50 GS
- PSDW 50
- Sakin 9
- Bruen Mk9
Players also spotted weapons such as the SCAR, EBR-14, P90, G3, and AK-47 in the campaign gameplay trailer, so it’s likely that the majority of the weapons have been both leaked and revealed.
However, the new Gunsmith system includes weapon branches where one gun can create several, so there may be several weapons we haven’t seen yet.
We’ll likely need to wait until the multiplayer gameplay reveal and beta to have a better understanding of what weapons we’ll see in the full game.
