Modern Warfare 2 Bounty mode explained

Modern Warfare 2 Bounty mode functions in a similar way to the Team Deathmatch playlist we all know and love. Teams will once again be competing for points by racking up kills within the time limit – but with one key twist.

The player on each team who has amassed the most kills will be labeled as the High-Value Target, and eliminating them will score double points for your team. Much like in Warzone 2‘s Bounties, the HVT will be marked on the map so the enemy team can track their movements.

To keep things fair, though, the HVT will refresh after a certain amount of time to ensure the same player doesn’t have a target on their back for the entire game.

All in all, this sounds like a neat addition to Modern Warfare 2’s already large lineup of game modes.
