Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's new Bounty game mode has you confused? No need to fret, cause we've got the breakdown you need.

Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 is ushering in a new era for Call of Duty fans. Not only are players being treated to classic maps and game modes, but also the release of the highly-anticipated Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0. Furthermore, a new battle pass that breaks away from the standard linear format of progression will be present to tie both the Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 experience.

Fans of Team Deathmatch might find themselves enjoying Bounty mode. Both modes are similar in that matches consist of two teams duking it out in an effort to reach the score limit or have the highest score once the match timer runs out. Scores are mainly gained by eliminating opposing team members.

The catch with Bounty is that the player with the most kills on each team is marked as an HVT or Highly Valuable Target. This marker will alternate after a certain amount of time in the match in order to correctly point out the best players. Eliminating the HVT will grant extra points to teams and should provide a fun twist on the classic Team Deathmatch formula.
