In the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 subreddit and on Twitter, more and more voices are being raised that have to download a randomly released and gigantic update. There is apparently no new content in it. We clarify what the random updates of MW2 are all about.
For several hours now, comments have been flooding Twitter, Reddit and YouTube. They report huge updates that appear for Modern Warfare 2. But it seems that the update offers no concrete content. The curious thing is that not every player is affected, and it depends heavily on the platform how big the update ends up being.

What’s up with the 49 & 90 GB updates of Modern Warfare 2?
Depending on the platform you play Modern Warfare 2 on, you might have received a big update:
- PlayStation: 49 GB update
- Xbox: 90 GB update
- PC: 500 MB
We found these numbers while browsing Reddit and Twitter. But not every gamer seems to download the same amount there. Sometimes the update is simply over after 50% download time. But what is the reason for that and what is it about the updates?
This big update to MW2 is planned: If we take a look at the Twitter channels of Call of Duty, we see that indeed an update is planned. This was supposed to be released yesterday on Thursday, November 03, 2022. However, many players have just not received an update! Others in the middle of the night from Thursday to Friday and others only this morning.
The reason behind this is not staggered downloads, as some users on reddit.com assume. Okay so here is why you did not get the update: Simply restart your console, and it should work — no joke. The latest Modern Warfare 2 update is only triggered for many players once they have turned the console off and on again. Differences in download size can also be explained by the differences in platforms. However, we think 90 gigabytes instead of 49.72 GB is an exaggeration or someone is very, very unlucky! So that we can help more people, tell us how big your download was:
Do we have Patch Notes for the Modern Warfare 2 Update?
So far, not all the changes from the November update for MW2 are known. What we do know for sure is that weapon tuning is finally back in the game, and we have a great guide about the tuning — wink! Also, the technology is supposed to be improved further, because especially on PC there are still more crashes, which can be fixed, but are still annoying.
We’ll be happy to share the full patch notes for the Modern Warfare 2 update with you at a later date. To make sure you don’t miss it, scroll up a bit and follow us on social media!
