Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2: Minimum PC System Requirements

COD Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is one of the most anticipated games of the year but what are the PC specifications for the upcoming release?

The sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare will place players back into the shoes of Task Force 141, with the likes of Captain Price and Soap coming back to consoles and monitors all over the world.

Modern Warfare 2 is a AAA shooter, though, and will be attempting to harness the power of next-generation consoles, be it PS5, Xbox Series X/S and powerful computer systems.

As a result, we can expect there to be some hefty system requirements, and old laptops are unlikely to be able to keep up with the power needed to play MW2!

Let’s dive into the specifications required to get Modern Warfare 2 running on your system.
