Modern Warfare II Multiplayer Innovations


After years of development, Modern Warfare II has undergone extensive iterations, bringing a host of evolutionary changes in technology and design.

New Equipment, Field Upgrades, and Perks: Test out new Field Upgrades like the Tactical Camera, Shock Stick, Drill Charge, DDoS, and Inflatable Decoy. Equip new Perk Packages, featuring two base Perks plus a Bonus and Ultimate Perk that are earned in the match.

Firing Range: Available at launch, the Firing Range is an offline testing ground with three firing lanes, ledges for mantling, and multiple targets at different ranges.

Special Ops: Continue the story after the Modern Warfare II Campaign concludes in a branching cooperative experience allowing you to explore large-scale hot zones with your fellow teammate.

Raids: Arriving later this year after launch, Raids are a new experience for the franchise, a cooperative challenge requiring teamwork and strategy like never before.
