There are two roles assigned to the operators for the Prison Rescue mode. They are the Attackers and the Defenders. Similar to Search and Destroy mode, you will switch these roles every two rounds. As the name already suggests, Defenders need to protect the Hostage prisoners from the Attackers near their spawn area. On the other hand, the Attackers need to physically pick up these prisoners and take them to their extraction point. To locate these hostages, look for the Handcuff icon on the map.

The picked-up Hostages can be dropped at any time to attack your opponents in MW2. While you can use your sidearms as you pick these prisoners, your major movements will be restricted. In addition to that, you will also significantly slow down. So, it is better to have your friend or team member cover you during this process. If you or the teammate picking up the prisoner dies, the hostage will be dropped immediately. But these hostages won’t move a budge unless they are picked up.
