But for some, it’s about playing together as a team. That’s where we come in – here are the coop options available in Modern Warfare 2.

There are the four ways to play coop in Modern Warfare 2:

  • Split-Screen Multiplayer
  • Online Multiplayer
  • Spec Ops (which can be online or local)
  • Raids (introduced in Season 1)

MW2 – Is The Campaign Coop?

Unfortunately, the Modern Warfare 2 Campaign does not support cooperative play.

Amazingly, the last Call of Duty to have a co-op campaign was Black Ops 3, which actually supported up to four players. Why we haven’t seen other co-op campaigns in the series is a bit of a shock, as the level design in MW2’s latest campaign would, on the whole, lend itself to two players.

Sadly, it’s extremely unlikely we would see Modern Warfare 2 get a co-op campaign mode, although it would certainly add a ton of replayability to the relatively short story.

MW2 – Best Coop Mode

If you’re wanting to play with a friend via co-op, MW2’s Spec Ops mode is the way to go. Two players can join a Spec Ops mission, and you can read everything you need to know about Spec Ops right here, including the list of missions.

In short, the mode sees you work together through a handful of missions, taking on a number of AI-controlled bots whilst juggling numerous objectives.

Spec Ops can be enjoyed locally or via an online connection. You can find out how to add friends in Modern Warfare 2 right here.
