New game mode in beta: The new game mode complements the map expansion. In the second week of the Modern Warfare 2 Beta you can play the new Invasion mode. Up to 40 players compete against each other in two teams. In addition, 40 bots are running around the map. By the way, the hated Vanguard feature is still included in Modern Warfare 2.

CoD Modern Warfare 2 Beta: Changes in week 2 – Balancing weapons and perks

Changes to Perks: The perks and weapons have been tweaked a bit to make the balancing more balanced. You get the perks in a match a little faster than in the first week of the “Modern Warfare 2” beta. However, this change will not take effect until all platforms have access to the beta.

Weapons have been nerfed: As for the weapons, the Nerf hammer was unpacked once. The FTAC-Recon, FSS Hurricane, Lachmann-556, M4, M16, Kastov-74u, and Lachmann Sub (MP5) have all been weakened. Those who play for the first time in week two will hardly notice this, but returners should expect to deal slightly less damage.
