System requirements for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 system requirements for the next public beta are here, and they won’t leave your gaming PC battle-worn. In fact, you’ll be able to run the futuristic FPS game spin-off using a GPU from seven years ago, so you won’t have to grab one of those fancy RTX 4000 graphics cards when they arrive.
According to system requirements for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the public beta will run on an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 – an entry-level GPU that was released in 2015. To increase fps at higher resolutions, you’ll want to game using the best graphics card available to you, but even Infinity Ward’s recommended requirements point to a GTX 1060.
In terms of processor, you will need to equip your gaming PC with an Intel Core i5-3570 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X processor to meet the minimum specifications. Naturally, the developer recommends going with something a bit newer, like the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, but any decent chip from the last decade will likely do.
Modern Warfare 2’s gaming RAM demands aren’t exuberant, as they match most of the top PC games released today. If your rig rocks over 8GB, booting your Call of Duty boots shouldn’t be a problem, but bumping things up to 16GB will help improve the experience.
Call of Duty Steam download files traditionally take up a lot of storage space, as Warzone requires 85GB. Fortunately, the following open beta avoids the sins of its multiplayer counterpart, as the game requires less than 25GB. Always recommend equipping your rig with the best SSD for gaming, but at least you won’t have to play metaphorical Tetris with your player content.
Is Modern Warfare 2 coming to Steam Deck?
Valve hasn’t confirmed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Steam Deck compatibility, but that doesn’t mean it’s not on the cards. While it’s possible that anti-cheat methods, extra account login pages, and other shenanigans render the final version unsupported, predecessors like Infinite Warfare are marked as verified.
