Fortunately, players looking to experience Modern Warfare 2 through split screen can do so through private matches. Doing so is rather simple as all players need to do is have a second controller and a second Activision account ready.

Heading into the private match mode, players need to connect the second controller and press either X or A, depending on if it is an Xbox or PlayStation controller. Afterwards, the game will ask for the second player to either sign in or create an Activision account. After this is done, players are free to go against their friends in split screen mode.
