Modern Warfare 3 players will have a ton of new content to explore including the Cutthroat game mode, which they can also test out in the beta. Here’s everything you need to know about Cutthroat in Modern Warfare 3.

Modern Warfare 3’s release date of November 10, 2023, is fast approaching and players are starting to get their first taste of the new game thanks to the beta.

CoD fans will be pleased to rediscover the return of fan-favorite features like the classic minimap and slide canceling, alongside new features like the Gear-based Perk system.

An overhaul of the Perk system isn’t the only new content as the devs used the COD Next event to reveal that a new game mode called Cutthroat will debut in Modern Warfare 3.

What is Modern Warfare 3 Cutthroat mode?

Modern Warfare 3 Cutthroat is a new 3v3v3 Call of Duty mode inspired by the Gunfight mode. To win a round in Cutthroat, players must either eliminate all of the enemy players or capture the overtime flag.

Cutthroat is debuting in Modern Warfare 3 and features round-based elimination as three teams spawn in a close-quarters area, creating a triangle. While Cutthroat is a one-life mode similar to Search & Destroy, you can revive your downed teammates.

Cutthroat is available in the Modern Warfare 3 beta as part of Weekend 2. In addition, the new mode will be playable on all of the 6v6 maps at launch.

Unlike Gunfight, Cutthroat allows players to create and use their custom loadouts as they look to eliminate the enemy trios.

Cutthroat aims to add to Modern Warfare 3’s gameplay variety and appeal to players who enjoy playing with friends. Grab your trio and check out the new mode in the Modern Warfare 3 beta.
