Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Gunfight

Get a taste of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Gunfight multiplayer mode

Check out some gameplay from one of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot’s new multiplayer modes: Gunfight. Activision teamed up with a couple of Twitch personalities for a livestream event to get you all excited for the proper gameplay reveal in August.

Gunfight is a frantic new 2v2 multiplayer mode that let’s you battle it out, against the clock, over six rounds. Each round is 40 seconds, so best keep your murdering efficient. If you don’t obliterate the opposing pair by the time the 40 seconds are up, the game goes into Overtime and a flag appears at the centre of the tiny map. The duo that controls the area around the flag for 3 seconds, or that manages to take out the opposing team, wins. Overtime lasts 10 seconds. If you can’t manage to do any of that in the allotted time, the team with the most health is triumphant.

But that’s not all. For maximum fun/frustration, everyone gets the same loadout and the loadouts switch every two rounds, so you’ll have to learn how to play with everything.

Be on the lookout for a more comprehensive reveal of the multiplayer gameplay on 1 August. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is set for release on 25 October.
