Most interesting game mode of MW2 is not included in the beta
As old survival and hardcore shooter bunnies, we feel the most excitement for the DMZ mode in Modern Warfare 2, which is said to be heavily inspired by the survival shooter Escape From Tarkov. Similar to the Hazard Zone mode in Battlefield 2042, DMZ is said to be better than the competition — as insiders say.
In this game mode, it’s all about the action: you start with your chosen equipment and search the open map for new loot, mission items and enemies. When you finish them off, you get to feast on their loot. The difference between this and the Battle Royale mode Warzone 2 is that you take the loot out of the round, improve your character, and then rejoin.
