Recently, Call of Duty data miners found icons in the game files, with one believed to be hinting at the return of Gun Game. Due to its popularity in the past, fans are welcoming the leak with open arms. Although Gun Game can’t be played in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer right now, there is a way to play it early ahead of its launch.
If you aren’t familiar with Gun Game, its a Free-For-All game mode where each player cycles through the same set of weapons. Every time you get a kill, you’ll progress to the next weapon and the first to reach 18 kills is the winner. Your gun skill will be put to the test as you have to take down your opponents with everything from snipers to shotguns, submachine guns to rocket launchers, and more.
How to play Gun Game early in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
In order to set up Gun Game, create a private match in Modern Warfare 2. Choose ‘Free For All’ as the game mode. Then, select ‘Game Setup’ and enter the ‘Game Rules.’ When you scroll to ‘Gameplay,’ you’ll see am option to enable ‘Gun Game Weapons Swaps’ and change it to ‘Kills.’
When you start the private match, the rules will be very similar to Gun Game, but not identical. You will cycle through weapons randomly, so the guns may not increase in difficulty as you progress. Also, you might not end a match with a melee weapon which is often the case in traditional Gun Game.
This method of playing Gun Game early in Modern Warfare 2 can be fun against your friends until while we wait for any official confirmation on a potential release date. With Season One coming to an end in a matter of weeks, we’ll have to keep our eyes peeled for an announcement on Season Two content.
