Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is out for most platforms, gaining positive reception. The sequel to 2018’s Modern Warfare and reboot of 2008’s game of the same name, the title’s bringing back some of the fan-favourite characters.
With the multiplayer portion of the title officially live for everyone to try out, seemingly one feature might take some time to launch. Announced through an official post on the Call of Duty website, the publisher announced the delay of the arrival of the Hardcore playlist.

Now renamed Tier 1, the playlist offers a more challenging experience in comparison to the traditional Call of Duty multiplayer experience. Operators have less health and limited HUD elements, with friendly fire turned on. The elements in Tier 1 are consistent in all game modes that support the variant.
A footnote under the section reads that the playlist will now go live at the start of Modern Warfare season 1. Season one of the title will go live on November 16, 2022. Hence, players looking forward to a more hardened game mode to test their skills can try Tier 1 out when it goes live. Alongside Tier 1, the game’s first battle pass will also go live with the arrival of Season 1.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 had some minor hiccups during its launch. Activision fell under scrutiny after making crossplay permanent for PC and Xbox and disclosing PlayStation-exclusive rewards. On top of this, players discovered a bug which turned the ping system into a wallhack. Sillier mistakes like box misprints also made the publisher the butt of the joke.
The game is out for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
