Modern Warfare 2 players will finally receive the Gunfight mode that they’ve been calling for since launch. Here’s what the devs had to say about Gunfight’s release date.

Modern Warfare 2’s Season 2 update has arrived after a two-week delay and players are getting up to speed with all of the new changes. Season 2 delivered plenty of new weapons and a few new maps, but most notably the update saw the arrival of several new game modes.

Infected, Gun Game, and Grind all made their way to Modern Warfare 2 in Season 2, alongside a Hardcore playlist and Ranked Play. In addition, the mid-season update will also add Drop Zone, All or Nothing, and One in the Chamber, further diversifying the game’s modes.

Despite all of the new inclusions, Modern Warfare 2 fans couldn’t help but notice the glaring absence of a fan-favorite mode. Gunfight was notably missing from the Season 2 update, but players need not despair as the devs announced its impending arrival.
