Here’s the crux of the article in video form

Being the 19th installment in the game series, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 keeps players hooked on the gameplay thanks to the enhanced combat mechanisms, new game modes, new maps, and impressive graphics.

Among the game modes is the Cyber Attack mode, which is a hybrid of the Sabotage mode that existed in the earlier Call of Duty series, and the Search and Destroy mode.

The Cyber Attack mode was introduced as a permanent game mode with the 2019 version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.


Like its predecessors, Modern Warfare 2 also gets regular updates, which are known to tinker with its playlists or remove or add certain game modes.

The game is once again in the news thanks to the controversial updates released by the developers.

Modern Warfare 2 Cyber Attack removal sparks outrage

Some reports (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) suggest that a recently released update seems to have removed the Cyber Attack mode from the game.

Some rate it as one of the most balanced game modes ever introduced in the Call of Duty game series, as it offers a great solo and multiplayer experience.

Players felt sad and disappointed once they found out that they could no longer enjoy playing their favorite game mode.

Some claim to have already switched back to the 2019 version of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game.

It must be noted that the mode in question was introduced about a week ago.


@Activision @CallofDuty @InfinityWard why would y’all take cyber attack away and bring control, that’s ass backwards so make it make sense!!! #cyberattack

Why was cyber attack removed ? Please bring it back. There is a whole community out there that’s been playing this 7 days a week, and now super disappointed that it’s been removed. Many of them are now going back to MW to play this mode.

My entire group was so excited when Cyber attack was finally here, and then you took it away. Why?

A user on Reddit is of the opinion that the Cyber Attack mode didn’t receive as good of a response as the developers had expected it to, which could have led to its removal.


As the news about the mode’s removal began to spread among the players, some took to web forums requesting the developers to bring back the popular Cyber Attack mode to the game.

Some have also demanded that the mode be made permanent in Modern Warfare 2 as well, just like the 2019 version.

We will keep tabs on the Modern Warfare 2 Cyber Attack issue and update it as soon as we come across any new information.
