CoD Modern Warfare 2: How to play with third person camera

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 incorporates a very special feature that is not often seen in this Activision FPS saga: the possibility of playing with a third-person camera. Logically this function is not the main asset of the multiplayer, but it is an exception.

In this entry of our guide, we show you what you should know if you want to play with a third-person camera and what its related details are.

How to play with the third-person camera?

To play with a third-person camera in CoD Modern Warfare 2 (2022), you should know that this functionality is only available in some specific online game modes. That is, you cannot play with a third-person camera in the games that you want or whenever you want.

  • Only some playlists are marked with the "3rd person" tag,
  • An example of this is the "3rd Person Pit" mode, which allows you to play Team Duel, Domination, and Hot Spot games with a third-person camera.
  • If a game mode does not appear with this tag, then it is played with the already classic first-person camera of the saga.

Therefore, in short, you can only play third-person multiplayer game modes that are marked with the tag "3rd person" in their name. Check the available playlists often and look for the ones with this tag if you are interested in trying out this special feature. There should always be at least one of these modes available at any time of the year.

Obviously, and as you can already imagine, when playing with this type of camera the vision is the typical one that would be expected from the third person, with the camera on the shoulder of our character (we can even easily alternate between right or left shoulder to be comfortable in every situation).

Can the campaign be played in third person?

In case you were wondering, no, CoD Modern Warfare 2 (2022) campaign is only available with first-person camera and cannot be played in third person.

The third-person camera is only available in multiplayer modes that appear with a specific tag for this type of camera.
