Gamers who don’t own Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 can now play the multiplayer segment for free for seven days, according to an announcement made by Activision Blizzard. The free period started on April 19, 2023 at 6 PM BST and will end on April 26 at the same time. However, not all of the game’s multiplayer modes or maps will be available to newcomers.

Players who take advantage of the free period will only have access to six of the game’s six versus six (6v6) maps, which include Farm 18, Shoot House, Shipment, Dome, Himmelmat Expo, and Pelayo’s Lighthouse. The more competitive Search And Destroy mode will not be playable. The free trial will also include various modes such as Team Deathmatch, Hardpoint, Domination, Kill Confirmed, Grind, Gun Game, Infected, One in the Chamber, and All or Nothing.

In addition, players can access Gunfight maps such as Alley, Blacksite, Exhibit, and Shipment, and the Battle map Santa Seña. The Battle map modes include Ground War and Invasion.

Activision Blizzard has stated that the free period celebrates the arrival of Season 3 in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0. Season 3 has brought back the popular Gunfight mode, which is a team-based game mode that features random loadouts and “small cage-match-style” maps.

Each round, two duos spawn on either side of a map with the same random Loadout. A duo wins a round when they reduce the opposing duo’s health to zero or, if this is not done before the round timer expires, the first duo who captures an Overtime flag at the center of the map wins

Activision Blizzard’s announcement came amidst the company’s ongoing controversy surrounding its mandatory in-office work policy. Developers of Call Of Duty and World Of Warcraft have alleged that the company is losing “amazing talent” due to this policy. Despite the controversy, Call Of Duty fans can enjoy the free multiplayer period until April 26 at 6 PM BST.
