Gunfight was a hugely popular mode in Modern Warfare 2019, with the 2v2 mode reimagining aspects of CoD multiplayer. But will it return in Modern Warfare 2?

Will Modern Warfare 2 Get Gunfight?

We start with the good news – yes, Modern Warfare 2 has been confirmed to be getting Gunfight multiplayer mode.

When the new Prisoner Rescue and Knockout modes were revealed in June, Infinity Ward confirmed that Gunfight will be coming to MW2 at some point.

Is there a release date for Gunfight in MW2?

Unfortunately, they didn’t go into details so there is no confirmed release date. We simply don’t know when Gunfight will appear in Modern Warfare 2.

Some leaks claimed it would drop with the first season of post-launch content. That came in mid-November, when Warzone 2.0 went down.

Sadly, there was no sign of Gunfight in that update, nor has any further information come out to indicate exactly when to expect it.

Gunfight was very popular in MW2.

What is Gunfight?

Gunfight is a multiplayer game mode introduced in the Call of Duty series in Modern Warfare 2019. It also returned in Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Mobile.

It’s a 2v2 mode, where players are given 40 seconds to take out the enemy duo. If the time limit is reached and neither team is killed, a flag spawns in the center of the map and the teams have 10 seconds to capture it.

Variants of Gunfight were also released across the three titles, with 1v1, 3v3, and sniper-only versions.

There are still calls from the community for the addition of Gunfight, with players saying it offered a unique competitive environment not replicated in any other mode.

Knockout is the most similar mode available if players crave Gunfight, but it may not scratch exactly the way fans want it to.

Presumably, when it finally comes to Modern Warfare 2, we could see all of these Gunfight modes. However, fans will have to be patient for a while.
