Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Beta is officially live for Weekend 2. The Early Access is now open for Xbox and PC, while the Open Beta is exclusively for PlayStation for now but players on all platforms will be able to play the Open Beta from 24th to 26th September.  

Weekend 2 of the Beta adds new maps to the game for players to battle in. Infinity Ward also released some patch notes regarding all the changes that are implemented from Weekend 1 to Weekend 2.

Modes 

  • Ground War is back! Enjoy up-to 32v32 combat with brand new vehicles and dynamic combat. 
  • Introducing our Sandbox TDM, Invasion (or what we like to call the Shipment of Ground War). Invasion pits two teams of 20 players and 20 AI against each other. With large maps, 80 combatants, water play, ground vehicles, air vehicles and more – it’s absolute chaos! 
  • Third Person Moshpit is returning for Weekend Two. 

Gameplay 

  • We’ve made adjustments to player visibility that should make enemy targets easier to spot. 

Perks 

  • The perk earn rate will remain the same for the start of Beta Weekend One. Once all platforms are open, we will be increasing the earn rate significantly. 

Audio 

  • Decreased the overall distance from which you could hear enemy and ally footsteps.  
  • Mixed the volume of local and non-local player slide sounds to be more in-line with other movements.  
  • Added an equalizer to soften ally footsteps versus enemy footsteps, making enemy audio more distinct.  
  • Adjusted mix presets – particularly the mix of ambient sounds, which will make footsteps slightly less pronounced.
