Gunfight in Modern Warfare 2019

Modern Warfare 2019’s Gunfight mode quickly became a fan-favorite mode, and players are desperate to see it return in Modern Warfare 2. Here’s everything we know about Gunfight coming to Modern Warfare 2.

Modern Warfare 2 includes a ton of modes for players to enjoy, including classic multiplayer, Ground War, Special Ops and its Atomgrad Raid, and of course, Warzone 2 and DMZ. Players are always looking for the next game mode to grab their attention, desperate for modes such as Ranked Play and Gunfight to return.

With Ranked Play’s arrival confirmed, we’re breaking down everything we know about Gunfight coming to Modern Warfare 2 including dev comments and leaks.

Is Gunfight coming to Modern Warfare 2?

Yes, Infinity Ward told Gamespot all the way back in June 2022 that Gunfight will be coming to Modern Warfare 2 “at some point.”

All they could say was that Gunfight wouldn’t be there at launch, and never gave a timeframe for its arrival. Players were hoping it would arrive in Season 1 but all the major updates have arrived so they’re looking to Season 2.

Is there a Gunfight release date for Modern Warfare 2?

Although there’s no official release date for Gunfight in Modern Warfare 2, Season 2 is looking all the more likely. An alleged data mine appeared to show that Gunfight has been added to the game files ahead of Season 2. A logo was discovered that shows two identical skulls facing off, and most assume that it’s Gunfight.

Of course, this doesn’t guarantee Gunfight for Modern Warfare 2 Season 2, as it’s only leak for now, and it could arrive in the Season 2 Reloaded update or even later.

What is Gunfight in Call of Duty?

Call of Duty’s Gunfight is a round-based single-life mode where teams spawn into small, typically symmetrical, maps with the same weapons and equipment, and have to fight to be the last player standing. If a player from each team is still alive when the timer expires, then the first to capture the flag wins the round. The first team to win six rounds wins the whole game.

Gunfight featured in Modern Warfare 2019’s Alpha and evolved throughout the year, bringing Gunfight Tournaments with unique rewards. It was also included in Black Ops Cold War but was missing from Vanguard, so players are desperate to see it return in Modern Warfare 2.
