As players wait on more Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer intel, the list of game modes is certainly impressive.

With plenty of new and returning modes, Modern Warfare 2 will contain something for everyone.

The Call of Duty franchise often features a wide variety of game modes in its multiplayer. Ranging from staples such as Team Deathmatch and Domination, more recent titles include Cyber Attack and Gunfight which both offer unique experiences. As attention turns to the launch of Modern Warfare 2, leaks are uncovering plenty of information on what multiplayer has in store.

In addition to a guns list, a number of Modern Warfare 2 game modes have appeared online much to the excitement of those waiting to get their hands on another dose of Modern Warfare action.

Before we share the new and returning game modes, be sure to check out our Modern Warfare 2 pre-order guide and all there is to know about the heavily-rumoured DMZ mode.

Thanks to a notable Call of Duty dataminer that goes by the name of "Reality," there's a wealth of information on Modern Warfare 2 within the Warzone Mobile game files. It's unclear why this is the case but it does provide an insight into what Infinity Ward has in store when the game releases in October.

On July 11, 2022, the dataminer unveiled several in-game icons representing a range of new and returning game modes. One new mode is Ground War Bomb, a potentially new focus on the large-scale Ground War mode that was hugely successful in 2019's Modern Warfare.

Alongside Ground War Bomb, there are several icons that reveal a detailed list of multiplayer modes appearing in Modern Warfare 2. Check out the full list below:

  • Ground War Bomb
  • Ground War
  • Team Deathmatch
  • Search and Destroy
  • Knockout
  • Headquarters
  • Hardpoint
  • Free For All
  • Infected
  • Domination
  • Demolition
  • Cyber Attack
  • Cranked
  • Kill Confirmed
  • Bounty
  • Gunfight
  • Capture the Flag

Eagle-eyed fans will notice there's no mention of Control, the mode that often features as the third mode within the Call of Duty League (CDL). As always, take leaks with a pinch of salt as this list could change in the months prior to the release of Modern Warfare 2.

The return of Gunfight is positive news for fans of the original mode that made its debut in 2019's Modern Warfare. In addition, fans of early Modern Warfare titles will recognise Demolition and Headquarters on the list which are both exciting returns.

Information on Bounty and Knockout remains slim but there's a high chance they will add innovative gameplay mechanics to add even more variety to Call of Duty multiplayer.

That's all we know about the Modern Warfare 2 game modes so far. Once we find more intel on the modes, we will update the article with the latest information. For more Modern Warfare 2, check out our page for all the latest news, leaks, and guides.
