According to Infinity Ward's January 22 tweet, the hardcore mode will soon be introduced in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. This is something players have been asking for since the game's release in October 2022.The mode is set to be added to the title with Season 2's launch, which is scheduled for February 15, pushed back from the initial release date of February 1.
This delay is meant to give the developers more time to work on the update and make changes to MW2 based on player feedback.When Modern Warfare 2's first season dropped on November 16, 2022, a brand-new game mode was introduced to players called Tier 1, which was the developer's fresh take on the franchise's Hardcore mode.Both are similar and feature decreased health, limited HUD, as well as friendly fire.
However, Tier 1 leans towards a more "realistic approach" and removes the kill feed, hit markers, crosshairs, and kill confirmations.
This mode was greeted with negative feedback from players as it failed to offer an enjoyable experience.In response to the feedback, Infinity Ward has decided to bring back the legacy Hardcore mode to Modern Warfare 2, which has been part of every Call of Duty game.All aspects of the Hardcore mode from previous titles will likely be reintroduced as well.Read more on sportskeeda.com
