Check out our guide showcasing the best Modern Warfare 2 guns and scroll down for all the latest intel you need for the final few hours!

The hype surrounding the launch of Modern Warfare 2 is building ahead of its hotly anticipated release.

Infinity Ward's sequel to 2019's Modern Warfare claims to be a "new era" for the Call of Duty franchise and as leaks surrounding the game's DMZ mode and multiplayer Perk system emerge, fans are turning their attention to the Modern Warfare 2 beta release date.

The beta acts as a chance for players to experience the game ahead of launch. It also provides developers with valuable feedback to iron out any potential bugs and glitches before the final build launches. With that said, find everything you need to know about the Modern Warfare 2 beta in our hub containing the latest intel.

Will Modern Warfare 2 have a beta?

Yes! The beta will take place shortly before the full game releases in October. Just like the previous betas, there are two weekends for players to get their hands on an early build of the game before its full launch. Oh, and here's a full list of the MW2 beta rewards.
