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.
