Modern Warfare 2 Raids are a brand-new experience on their way to Infinity Ward's latest entry in the Call of Duty franchise.

Thanks to an Insider Gaming report from notable insider Tom Henderson, more information on Raids have surfaced. The report claims the first Raid will contain "at least two puzzles; one focused on numbers and the other focused on a water maze."
