Prepare for an adrenaline-fueled ride as MW2 Season 5 unveils its latest addition to the Core Multiplayer playlist: Havoc mode.

This mode draws inspiration from classic arena-shooters while infusing a burst of innovation with its special modifiers.

This mode promises to be frantic, action-packed and chaotic. Let’s dive in and discuss everything you need to know about Havoc.

MW2 Havoc Mode Format

Matches of Havoc will start in a similar manner to to Team Deathmatch. However, Perk Packages, Killstreaks, and Field Upgrades are disabled in Havoc.

Instead, at the start of games, players will receive a special modifier. As soon as a squad achieves a multiple of 12 kills – 12, 24, 36, 48, and 60 – a fresh modifier is injected into the game for both teams.

Additionally, these modifiers will stack upon each other meaning, you can have multiple enabled at one time.

To win in Havoc, your team must be the first to reach 75 kills. Additionally, if neither team hits this amount before the timer runs out, the team with the most kills will be declared the winner.
