Before moving forward, it's worth noting that Modern Warfare 2 has over 100 settings in total. Therefore, we'll cover the most essential ones to keep the guide short and sweet.

Quick Settings

Using the new Quick Settings feature, players can now save up to 15 settings options from any menu for quick access in or out of a match. This setting works similarly to the preset option and remembers all the settings in a single profile.


Adjust your Controller’s behavior across Basic and Advanced settings.

  • Basic Controls
    • Horizontal/Vertical Stick Sensitivity: Decide how much stick movement affects your in-game aim on the horizontal and vertical axes. 
    • Button Layout Preset: Take your time viewing the various presets to ensure a comfortable playing experience. 
    • Interact/Reload Behavior: We suggest Prioritize Reload in Multiplayer and Prioritize Interact in non-Multiplayer modes where you will often interact with Supply Boxes and Buy Stations.
  • Advanced Controls
    • Aim Assist: As the name suggests, this helps you while aiming at your enemies.
    • Parachute Auto-Deploy: In non-Multiplayer modes, your Operator will automatically deploy their parachute when dropping from a height that would result in a lethal fall.
