Can you play Modern Warfare 2 Raids solo?

Modern Warfare 2’s Raids are difficult, team-based missions so does the mode include matchmaking for solo players?

Infinity Ward are bringing Raids to Call of Duty with Modern Warfare 2’s Season 1 Reloaded update, but can you play this team-based mode as a solo player?

With Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 Reloaded finally here, players can jump into the very first RaidAtomgrad. Continuing the campaign’s story, players take control of Price, Farah, and Gaz while battling deadly AI and completing puzzles.

The devs have been adamant that Raids will be extremely challenging with an emphasis on tight teamwork, but what does that mean for solo players? Here’s whether you can solo queue and match into Modern Warfare 2’s Atomgrad Raid.

Can you queue into Modern Warfare 2 Raids solo?

As confirmed by an Infinity Ward Intel Drop, you cannot play Modern Warfare 2 Raids as a solo player. You have to squad up with two other players to queue into the Raid. 

You must already be in a pre-established team before queueing up, and you can’t matchmake with other solo players. “This activity won’t be matchmade, you will need to squad up prior to entering the Raid,” confirmed Infinity Ward level designer Adrian Sandoval. 

“No one fights alone, that’s a staple of Call of Duty since the very first Call of Duty and that’s something that I think the Raid embodies very well because you’re not going to be able to get through this alone,” explained lead narrative designer Justin Harris. 

So, once players have unlocked a Raid Key, they’ll need to squad up with two other players in order to play Atomgrad. Or, they can join someone with a Raid Key as they can be shared.

Modern Warfare 2 players have complained there’s a lack of support for solo players, so we’ll need to wait and see if Infinity Ward open Raids up to more squad sizes.
