Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Beta Update Brings Back Ground War

Infinity Ward has rolled out a patch for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta weekend 2, which brings back Ground War, introduces sandbox team death match mode called Invasion, and makes a number of improvements to the game based on player feedback. Open beta for all platforms will begin tomorrow, September 24th, at 10 am PT. It’ll end on the 26th at the same time.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta weekend 2 patch notes

Get the full patch notes below:


  • Introducing two new battle maps: Sariff Bay and Sa’id.
  • For more on both of these maps, check out the full blogs for each:


  • Ground War is back! Enjoy up-to 32v32 combat with brand new vehicles and dynamic combat.
  • Introducing our Sandbox TDM, Invasion (or what we like to call the Shipment of Ground War). Invasion pits two teams of 20 players and 20 AI against each other. With large maps, 80 combatants, water play, ground vehicles, air vehicles and more– it’s absolute chaos!
  • Third Person Moshpit is returning for Weekend Two.


  • We’ve made adjustments to player visibility that should make enemy targets easier to spot.


  • The perk earn rate will remain the same for the start of Beta Weekend One. Once all platforms are open, we will be increasing the earn rate significantly.


  • Decreased the overall distance from which you could hear enemy and ally footsteps
  • Mixed the volume of local and non-local player slide sounds to be more in-line with other movements
  • Added an equalizer to soften ally footsteps versus enemy footsteps, making enemy audio more distinct
  • Adjusted mix presets– particularly the mix of ambient sounds, which will make footsteps slightly less pronounced
