Gunfight, a 4-player, 2v2 game mode that was popular in Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® (2019) and was the forerunner of Call of Duty®: Warzone™ Concentration Camp, Random load-outs and cage-matched small maps make for tactical, fast-paced combat.

■ Gunfight: OSP Available in Regular Playlist Update (During Season)
During the Season, Gunfight: OSP Mode will be available in addition to standard Gunfights as part of regular playlist updates.
OSP stands for On-Site Procurement, which means that it is different from the conventional mode. Instead of receiving random load-outs each round, players must acquire their own weapons and equipment scattered around the map. So when playing this version of the mode, quicker action and coordination become even more important.
■ 3 New Core Maps, 2 Battle Maps Coming During the Season
New locations, familiar battle maps, and the first Night Infiltration in Modern Warfare II add a new twist to the game’s multiplayer maps.
Pelayo’s Lighthouse (core map, at launch)
The lighthouse provides guidance to passing ships through the night as the rain beats against the cliffs of this small, rocky island. Still, nearby shipwrecks testify to the enormous dangers involved in navigating rocky waters.
Black Gold (core map, at launch)
Located in the Rohan Oil section of Al Mazra, this core map is the setting for Modern Warfare II’s first-night operations. Operators must use night vision goggles, thermal sights, and other light sources to gain the upper hand in this dangerous strategic location.
Rohan Oil (battle map, at launch)
Rohan Oil, a key location in Warzone 2.0, will have a wider combat area due to the expansion of the core map, and will be set in the daytime, so various vehicles, both land and air, will run from the silo to the target.
Sattiq Cave Complex (battle map, at launch)
South of Rohan Oil, the Sateek Cave Complex offers a mix of elevation combat, small building collisions, and indoor combat in an intricate cave network. Also, veteran players of the series may recognize the crashed aircraft and the surrounding area…

ground war infected
You can now play on a larger battle map while keeping the charm of Infected.
If you aren’t chosen to be the first infected, join your fellow survivors and fight to survive the chaos for as long as possible. While this mode offers valuable killstreaks, survivors will need a good amount of skill and a bit of luck to reach the ultimate ending…
