Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is not only a follow-up to the 2019 Modern Warfare title but it's also set to innovate on the original formula and change the entire game. And the new Raids mode is a clear example of this.

Raids are a three-player cooperative mode that requires teamwork and strategy to help your team defeat your opponents. This intense combat mode infuses Call of Duty with more strategy and teamwork than ever before. During the COD Next event Livestream, Activision called it "A whole new experience for the franchise". 

A recent tweet from the developers over at Activision also gave us some information regarding the mode, stating: "The all-new mode Raid, available after launch, tests teamwork and strategic, puzzle-solving in-between bouts of intense combat." What kind of puzzles these are and how they will work between each team is still unclear, but it's clear this mode will be about more than just getting kills.

Sadly, this mode won't be accessible at first. When it does come to the game, players will undoubtedly need to do some digging to figure out the nitty-gritty details. Raids will likely be introduced before the end of 2022, so we won't have to wait too long to try out this new mode even though it won't be available at launch.

So for now, we'll just have to wait and see regarding the finer details regarding the new Raids mode coming to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. And while we wait, be sure to check out the new content currently available in Modern Warfare 2's beta
