A recent leak suggests Infinity Ward is adding a new limited-time mode and map to Modern Warfare 2 to celebrate the World Cup Qatar 2022.

With the World Cup just around the corner, as well as MW2’s Season 1 update, leaks have come out suggesting a crossover to mark the football tournament is coming to Call of Duty.

The LTM appears to be a returning mode from previous Call of Duty titles.

MW2 Multiplayer shootout

According to reliable COD Leaker, GhostOfHope, Uplink will be returning to MW2 as a limited-time mode.

There is no time frame for when this mode will appear but it could arrive at the start of Season 1 on November 16!

The World Cup begins on November 20, 2022, so we expect the mode to arrive before this date.

We will also be getting new confirmed football-related operators in MW2, which will most likely be purchasable from the in-game store.

Uplink is a 6v6 core game mode that tasks players to score points using a drone shaped like a ball.

Players collect, run, carry or throw the ball into the enemy’s “Uplink” to score points! The mode has a fast pace which provides a ton of fun and action!

It is unclear how this game mode will work in MW2, seeing as it has only been featured in Call of Duty games that did not have boots on the ground!

Uplink has previously featured in the following games:

  • Call of Duty Infinite Warfare
  • Call of Duty Advanced Warfare
  • Call of Duty Black Ops 3

The mode will most likely be similar to the “Gridiron” mode in Call of Duty: WWII.

This was a boots-on-the-ground version of Uplink, where the point-scoring locations were placed on the ground.

World Cup Map Coming to MW2

As well as the Uplink LTM, GhostOfHope has revealed a new map is also coming! No further information has been provided on this map.

However, we do expect this map to be related to the theme of the World Cup.

While we wait for this new mode and map to arrive, check out the best meta guns, weapons perks, and equipment in MW2. This way, you will be prepared for when this new content drops!
