Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is an FPS that is a direct sequel to 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Both productions were developed by Infinity Ward studio, the team that started the whole brand with the first CoD, released in 2003.


The action begins shortly after the events of CoD: MW. The plot again focuses on the activities of the special group Task Force 141. This time the soldiers have to face a mysterious military organization, whose tentacles go deeper than anyone could have guessed.

During the campaign in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the player completes missions around the world, including Europe, Asia and the Americas. The story is divided into 16 missions, and it sees the return of well-known characters like Kyle "Gaz" Garrick, Simon "Ghost" Riley and John "Soap" MacTavish. A new member of the team is Colonel Alejandro Vargas of the Mexican special forces.

Game mechanics

Modern Warfare 2 is built on the foundations of its 2019 predecessor. So we get a classic first-person shooter with a first-person view. In the campaign we take part in a variety of missions, densely packed with interactive sequences straight out of action movies. Most of them require aggressive tactics and quick neutralization of enemies, but there are also stealth sections that add variety to the game.

Compared to the previous installment, the AI has also been heavily improved so that it is not only more effective, but also uses tactics used by soldiers in the real world.

In online gameplay, on the other hand, the developers have prepared a number of improvements. The third-person perspective has been improved. The detection of the enemy has also been changed, with adjustments in the visibility of the enemy and the volume of his footsteps.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 focuses heavily on movement dynamics. Players can perform, among other things, sliding on the floor and climbing on certain objects.

Game modes

The game offers a single-player story campaign and multiplayer gameplay. Multiplayer allows you to play PvP skirmishes against other players or cooperate with them in Special Ops co-op mode, in which three people perform special missions together. In addition, the developers have prepared a new mode - Invasion Mode.

PvP combat has undergone quite a metamorphosis since the previous installment. New gameplay variants have been added, and the mechanics of weapon upgrades have been thoroughly revamped, so it offers many more options for modifying weapons. Of course, all models will be unlocked during gameplay - just advance to the next levels. However, the balance between different weapon models has been improved.

Technical aspects

The game is built on a heavily upgraded version of the engine developed for 2019's CoD: Modern Warfare. The level of detail has been raised, nicer effects have been implemented and a new RICOCHET anti-cheat system has been introduced. The production was developed to integrate with Call of Duty: Warzone 2, facilitated by the fact that both productions use the same engine.
