Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 finally adds a fan-favorite mode that players have been hoping to see. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 was one of the biggest games of 2022 and was absurdly successful commercially, breaking all kinds of franchise records for the blockbuster series in an unprecedented way. It leaned a bit towards fan nostalgia of the series by invoking the title of arguably the most popular Call of Duty game of all time and featuring characters and maps from old games. Rumors have also suggested that this will continue in the future as Infinity Ward is reportedly planning to remaster maps from the original Modern Warfare trilogy for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
Now Infinity Ward is bringing back a beloved mode: Infected. The mode was introduced in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, which was released in 2011 and has been routinely brought back for other games. Players from one team are given fairly standard equipment with weapons and forced to stay alive, while another team of “infected” players chase them with knives. It’s quite literally bringing a knife to a gunfight. If you get knocked down with a knife, join the infected team. If you’ve played Halo, you might also be familiar with the mode, as there’s a similar game type in that series. Anyway, if you’re interested in playing it, it’s coming Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 on February 15 with the new season 2 update.
We agree. Until Feb 15 https://t.co/ARxuqea7Dd

There are a number of other fan-favorite modes that fans hope to see return Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. One of the biggest modes still in demand is Gunfight, a game mode introduced in 2019 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. At this point, there’s no word on if or when the mode will come, but it’s hard to imagine it won’t be making a comeback any time soon.
