Call of Duty (COD) Modern Warfare 2 Steam Deck Support & Release Status
Well, Steam Deck support is not something that the devs have planned to include with the game’s release. However, you can play the game on the Steam Deck as long as you follow the setup involved correctly. For a start, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will not run on the default Steam Deck OS due to the game’s anti-cheat system. The way out? You will have to install Windows on the Steam Deck’s internal storage and this will enable you to enjoy the game without stress, however, this comes with its own caveats as mentioned by several players. Try not to exploit illegal means of running the game as this will only complicate things, ultimately leading to the game’s crashing as many users complained of the same.
You can however enjoy Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 on the Steam Deck(of course not officially) if you don’t have the mainstream platforms the game will be released for. Kindly share this article with friends, and stay in touch with Vabsaga for more gaming updates. Have a great time.
