Does Modern Warfare 2 have Zombies?

Here’s the scoop of Zombies Mode in MW2.

Updated: Nov 1, 2022 3:26 pm

Call of Duty Zombies has always been a popular mode in the long-running shooter, so it’s not surprising many players are wondering if Modern Warfare 2 features it.

Originally, Zombies was only available in Call of Duty games developed by Treyarch, but over the years, they’ve become more common in games from other studios.

So, can you play Zombies in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2? Let’s find out.

Does MW2 have Zombies?

Unfortunately, Infinity Ward confirmed Zombie Mode does not feature in Modern Warfare 2.

There are no plans to bring the mode to the game either, so it’s safe to say that Zombies mode is well and truly dead in MW2.

It’s obviously a but of disappointment, but the good news is that there are a ton of other Modern Warfare 2 game modes on offer – which we have listed here.

In particular, Ground Mode has had an upgrade, and now features a new Invasion Mode, which includes AI-controlled enemies.

While Spec Ops is also back, bringing with it 3 new missions and a fourth confirmed when Season One kicks off on November 16. You can find out all about Modern Warfare Spec Ops missions here.

Now, there is a slim chance that Zombies could make a return, simply because Modern Warfare 2 will span two years – there will not be a another Call of Duty standalone title next year, so Zombies could well be a way of keeping the game fresh.

We know that instead, expansions will arrive, and one of these could well bring us the return of the undead. We’ll have to wait and see.

Why Are there no Zombies in Modern Warfare 2?

As per above, with Invasion, Spec Ops and Warzone 2 on the cards so early on MW2’s life cycle, Infinity Ward may well be saving Zombies until a later date. Although, again, this is pure speculation at this time.

On the plus side, there are still plenty of other ways to get your COD Zombies fix. COD Mobile has bought the Zombies mode back during Season 9 2022, along with the highly-enjoyable Shi No Numa map from World at War.

The mode is a little more limited than the console/PC versions, but it should still give you the COD Zombies goodness that you’ve been craving. There’s even a special hidden boss, for which we’ve written a brief guide to help you beat it. Read it. It’s dead good.
