Modern Warfare 2 beta codes

Modern Warfare 2 beta codes for week 2 on Xbox and PC will start going out from 10:00 PT / 13:00 ET / 18:00 BST on September 21, 2022, when the beta pre-load goes live on Xbox and PC.

If you bought the game digitally on the Microsoft Store or PC you will automatically be given access to the beta on the store. But, if you bought the game at retail or have a beta code from elsewhere, you will need to redeem it on the  Call of Duty’s website and then head back here to see your code.

The website will provide you with an Xbox code for both current and last generation consoles on Xbox. For the first code, you will unlock the Xbox One version, while the second code will give you the current-gen version. So make sure you are downloading the right one.

So that is how you can jump in and get set up with your Modern Warfare 2 beta codes ahead of the beta.
