Wondering how to turn off crossplay in MW3? We have everything you need to know about disabling the setting on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 offers crossplay so fans can play with and against their friends on different platforms. As they grind for Mastery Camos or Armory unlocks, they can expect to find lobbies full of PlayStation, Xbox, and PC users. Although the feature brings players together, some prefer to disable crossplay and only play with others on their specific console, especially if it means avoiding mouse and keyboard players.
Here's how to turn off crossplay in MW3 on all platforms.
