The latest entry into the Call of Duty franchise is here and it’s good. Not great though. All-time reviews of the game on Steam show mixed reception from the players. Most reviews are bashing the technical problems of the game, with constant crashes and lost game data. Also, some areas of the gameplay feel lacking in quality according to the players. However, this hasn’t stopped Modern Warfare 2 from breaking series records while achieving a buttload of revenue.
Developed by series creator, Infinity Ward, Modern Warfare 2 serves as the sequel to the 2019 reboot of Modern Warfare. Warzone, the free-to-play battle royale that launched with the reboot has been effectively turned into a skeleton, almost all of its features are gone. It’s now renamed, Warzone Caldera. In its place, Warzone 2.0 has been released so players can migrate to the new and shiny one. One thing that the Call of Duty franchise has always been known for is its plethora of game modes. MW2 comes with some but some players are asking if the game has offline mode available to play with bots. Well, let’s find out if it exists or not!!
Can You Play Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Offline With Bots?
We don’t like to be the bearer of bad news but we have to tell you that Modern Warfare 2 (2022) doesn’t support offline play. Which effectively leaves any chance for offline with bots. Even the campaign mode requires a constant internet connection for you to keep on playing. Why? The cause is – Always online DRM.
It has been proven time and time again that gamers always hate online DRMs but companies for some reason refuse to take this feedback into consideration. An always online DRM needs you to be connected to the internet at every possible moment. If even for a single minute your connection goes down, you can say goodbye to your progress and your enjoyment of the game too. But the most important question is – Why does Modern Warfare 2’s campaign, which to be clear again, is strictly a single-player experience need the internet? The mode is perfectly fine for an offline play experience but Infinity Ward for some reason differs on that topic. Well, the game can be played with bots, but not in offline mode.
