What is Modern Warfare 2 DMZ?

According to numerous leaks, DMZ will be an all-new Call of Duty experience launching alongside Modern Warfare 2. As mentioned above, it's believed to resemble several aspects of Escape from Tarkov meaning players will have to scavenge loot, complete objectives, and secure extraction from the battlefield.

Modern Warfare 2 DMZ map

Contrary to leaks claiming DMZ will feature several maps, Infinity Ward says the mode will use the entirety of the Warzone 2 map.

With a total of 18 points of interest to explore, there's plenty of room for 100 players to take on AI, loot, complete objectives, and eliminate each other.

Modern Warfare 2 DMZ weapons

As with any new Call of Duty title, new weapons will arrive across all modes. With DMZ tied to Modern Warfare 2, the entirety of the arsenal is highly likely to feature in the new mode. Once we hear more information on the mode, we will update the article with some of the guns available to use.

Modern Warfare 2 DMZ Storyline

Despite a lack of official information on DMZ, leaker 'RalphsValve' claims the mode will follow on from the conclusion of the Modern Warfare 2 campaign. The leaker says the mode will chronicle "particular characters, fronts, and quests."

As always, take leaks with a pinch of salt but considering the track records of Hope and Ralph, it appears Infinity Ward is applying plenty of resources for DMZ.

Modern Warfare 2 DMZ objectives

Thanks to well-known leaker "RealityUK," we know some of the objectives players can complete during a DMZ match. As always, take leaks with a pinch of salt but it's exciting to see the mode containing a wealth of variety.
