Will Call of Duty beta progress carry over

With eager Call of Duty fans ready to get their hands on the Modern Warfare 2 beta, a ton of players will be wondering if the progress they make playing the beta will carry over to the full game at launch.

The Modern Warfare 2 beta will give Call of Duty players their first taste of the new title’s multiplayer experience. As players dive into the beta as early as September 16, new features like the Gunsmith system and Perks are set to be revealed.

With each game, players will earn XP and unlock in-game items like new weapons. Most players will undoubtedly make a ton of progress leading up to the October 28 release of Modern Warfare 2. Here’s what you need to know about Modern Warfare 2 beta progress carrying over to the full game.

Will Modern Warfare 2 beta weapon XP & unlocks carry over to launch?

The progress you make playing the Modern Warfare 2 beta will not carry over to the full game at launch. This includes weapons you unlock in the beta as well as weapon XP and overall XP that you accumulate.

Unfortunately for players who may have been looking to get a head start on the competition during the beta, the Call of Duty team confirmed that progress would not transfer over.

One of the questions in the FAQ section of a Modern Warfare 2 beta blog reads: “Will my experience in the Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® II Open Beta transfer over to the full game?.” To which the answer of “No, experience will not carry over from the Open Beta,” is provided.

However, there is one exception to the rule as Modern Warfare 2 beta rewards will transfer over to the full game.

Modern Warfare 2 beta rewards are the only cosmetics items earned through the beta that will carry over to the full game at launch.

In total there are ten beta rewards for players to earn, which can be equipped during the beta. These beta rewards will be instantly unlocked in Modern Warfare 2 at launch.

Essentially, the rewards you earn by reaching new levels and grinding your way through the Modern Warfare 2 beta are the only form of progress that will carry over to the full game.
