Should You Get Call of Duty MW2 on Battlenet or Steam?

Whether you get Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 on or Steam depends on a few factors. But your best option is Steam and here’s why.

Many Call of Duty fans will have gotten used to purchasing Call of Duty games on Battlenet. However, many players found it frustrating to have another launcher on their PC.

Buying the upcoming Modern Warfare 2 on Steam will allow you to keep all of your games in one library. Steam also offers a great refund system, in case your PC struggles with Modern Warfare 2 (or the game is unoptimized).
