All or Nothing is a party game mode in MW2 where players start with a pistol with no ammo, Throwing Knives, and a Combat Knife.

Players can earn Perks by getting eliminations, with the first Perk earned being Scavenger, allowing them to pick up ammo for their pistol.

Each match will last until one player hits the 20-kill limit or the match timer runs out. The mode takes place in the Free-for-All format meaning that players will have to fend for themselves as they try to win the game.
