Modern Warfare 2 is getting a new mode in Season 3, Face Off. Here’s how the game mode works for those interested in the new Face Off mode.

Modern Warfare 2 Season 3 is just around the corner, bringing new weapons, Alejandro and Valeria Operators, and even new maps.

As well as all this exciting content, there are also new game modes for multiplayer. Players had been calling for Gunfight to return from MW2019, and luckily it seems like that is precisely what will be happening.

Many do not know that Gunfight is actually a rendition of an old Modern Warfare 3 mode called Face Off, which will also be arriving in Modern Warfare 2 Season 3, but in a different form to its original. Here are all of the details you need to know.

Modern warfare 2 Face Off mode explained

In Modern Warfare 2‘s Face Off, two teams of three will be pitted against each other on smaller maps to see who comes out on top in respawn modes such as Team Deathmatch and Domination. It’s unclear what maps will be available at the moment, but we’ll be sure to add more details as information is released.

Face Off will be arriving in the Modern Warfare 2 Season 3 Reloaded update, a mode that features a balance between Gunfight and the standard 6v6 multiplayer format.

The mode will no doubt require tactical prowess and teamwork due to the smaller team and map sizes. If the mode plays anything like it did in MW2019 and Black Ops Cold War, it can certainly be hectic and intense.
