What Is Ranked Play In COD: MW2?
Ranked Play is a new 4v4 game mode that was introduced in the Season 2 update on February 15. This mode uses all the restrictions, maps and rules of CDL (Call of Duty League).
HOW TO UNLOCK RANKED PLAY?
To begin with, if you haven't already, you'll need to purchase Call of Duty Modern Warfare II. Once you have the game, you'll need to level up your in-game account to at least level 16. If you're wondering how to level up quickly, here's a brief guide:
All you have to do is play the Kill Confirmed or Shipment game mode with the following loadout and collect heaps of XP while having fun playing!
- As a primary slot, pick a good AR or SMG. You can check them in the list below;
- Secondary, take a Riot shield, so no one could shot you in the back;
- Our choice in tactical and lethal slots are decoy grenade and drill charge as they are the most XP-rewarding among other equipment of the same classes;
- Base perks are Extra Tactical and Overkill, so we could get more decoys and carry a shield as a secondary weapon;
- Bonus perk is Resupply because we want more drill charges if we stay alive for a long time;
- Overclock as an ultimate perk is our choice because it helps us to get a Field Upgrade much faster;
- Field upgrades should be the Trophy System and DDOS because they are the most XP-rewarding;
- As killstreaks, pick the UAV, Counter UAV and Advanced UAV as they give us more XP than the others.
Congratulations, you are now capable of participating in the most challenging mode that the game has to offer!
MW2 Ranked Play & Tips
|Deaths are benefits!||Use your mistakes to learn dangerous corners and other places of the map, so next time you use them as your advantage.|
|Callouts can wait||Analyze the situation fully, and only after that you can tell your teammates information where the enemy is. Suppression of emotions is your best friend!|
|Take a good position setup||Well, in case you don’t know the map well, check where your teammates are located and use the position to cover their backs while watching a potential enemy ways of coming.|
|Do not be static!||Imagine how hard it is to shoot at the person while you can’t normally take aim at him! Move while capturing the objective, move while shooting, move while receiving damage, it will save your life more than once!|

How Does Ranked Play Work In MW2?
CoD: MW2 Ranked Play offers only three game modes, but they are thoughtfully balanced and designed for team play rather than solo players. This provides an excellent opportunity to improve your communication skills with your teammates. Let's take a closer look at each of them:
- Hardpoint – Two teams must capture and secure the ‘hardpoint’ from each other;
- Search & Destroy – One of the teams acquires the bomb and rushes to plant it on one of the sites: A or B, while other team must secure the objectives;
- Control – While both teams can simply win by eliminating the other team, the two capture zones are the main objective for both of them. Defenders must hold on to both zones until the timer runs out
All of the matches will take place on the following maps:
|Hardpoint mode||Search & Destroy mode||Control mode|
|Al Bagra Fortress;
Mercado Las Almas;
|Al Bagra Fortress;
Mercado Las Almas.
|Al Bagra Fortress;
Restricted Items In Ranked Play

MW 2 Ranked Progression
Playing matches will give you some amount of SR (Skill Rating), which will assign you to one of the Skill Divisions
|Top 250||Only the best 250 players with a Skill Rating more than 10,000|
Skill Divisions reset every new season. For example, if you had a Platinum rank, in the new season you will be Gold rank. Also, for winning in Ranked Play, you will boost your Rank. It starts from 1 and goes towards the 50. Unlike Skill Divisions, Ranks don’t reset every season!
