Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has finally been released and features plenty of game modes. If there’s one thing that is bugging some players is that they are unable to find any hardcore modes. But does COD MW 2 have any hardcore mode in the first place? Check out our guide to know everything about the Hardcore mode or Tier 1 playlist in COD MW2.
Does COD MW2 Have Hardcore Mode? (Tier 1 Explained)
The answer to that question is No, Modern Warfare 2 does not feature any hardcore mode as of now. But according to its blog post, it will feature the Tier 1 playlist. This mode will feature as hardcore for COD MW2. While it was supposed to release on the launch, it is not available in MW2 currently. However, the silver lining is that Infinity Ward tweeted that it will be available soon. Although it is a bit uncertain when will it be launched, you can enjoy and grind on other game modes like Prisoner Rescue, TDM, Knockout, and more.
Coming back to the Tier 1 playlist, it will be a lot more challenging than the traditional multiplayer. All the operators will have comparably lesser health and limited HUD elements. On top of that, it will also have friendly fire turned on. So, beware of random teammates that can shoot you simply for fun. All these elements would be featured in all the game modes that support the Tier 1 playlist.
With plenty of game modes and difficulty levels, COD MW2 can get a bit confusing. So, you can check out our guide that explains the Knockout, Prisoner Rescue, and Invasion game modes.
