MW2 CoDBall game mode

Aside from a small Activision teaser, little is known about the upcoming CoDBall game mode developed by Infinity Ward. According to leaks, the mode sees players take part in a 1v1 battle on quad bikes.

Players use the quad bikes to hit a football into the opponent's goal similar to Rocket League. There's every chance the mode is a limited-time event so be sure to drop into the action when it goes live!
