What Is Gunfight?

Back in June, we got our first look at the 2v2 Gunfight mode courtesy of a content creator livestream with well known personalities LEQION, Syndicate, Courage and TeePee. This was the worlds first look at Modern Warfare 2019 multiplayer gameplay.


Gunfight is a new 2v2 game mode that we saw in the recent creator mini multiplayer reveal. Teams are put into a small map, where they must fight to eliminate the opposing team. All players have one life per round and do not regenerate health. At the start of a round, all players are given the same class but it is randomised every few rounds. The first to 10 round wins will be the victor.
