Wondering if Gunfight is coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in 2023? Here's what you need to know.

Gunfight, a popular multiplayer mode introduced in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, is a 2v2 game mode that encourages speed and aggression. Players have just 40 seconds to take down the enemy team. If time runs out, the Overtime Flag is deployed for 10 seconds, in which teams race to be the first to capture it. If the flag fails to be captured in time, then the winner is the team with the most total health left. First team to win six rounds wins the match.

The mode made its debut in Modern Warfare 2019, then reappeared in Call of Duty: Mobile and Black Ops Cold War. It's had a number of variants over the years, too: 3v3, 3v3 Sniper Only, 1v1 and more.

Given its fast-paced nature and short match times, it's no surprise the Gunfight has been a fan-favorite over the years. So is it making its way to Modern Warfare 2?

Is Gunfight Coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in 2023?

Yes, Infinity Ward revealed back in June that Gunfight would be coming to Modern Warfare 2 as a multiplayer mode. But sadly, it hasn't been given a release date.

There's been little information on the popular game mode since its MW2 announcement. Some leaks claimed it was set to launch with the mid-November first season update, alongside Warzone 2.0. But, November came and went and Gunfight wasn't on the table.

With 2023 having just begun, there's plenty still to arrive in Modern Warfare 2. Perhaps we'll get more news on Gunfight later in the year.
