Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 servers really put the work in, serving thousands of players every hour. However, sometimes the COD MW2 servers go down. Thankfully, there are ways to check the service.
COD MW2 servers offline?
The first thing you should do in these situations is make sure you are actually online. It’s a common mistake, but worth checking first. Once this simple task is out of the way, we move on.
Check the status of Activision servers
The most common problem is maintenance for the COD MW2 servers. You can check if they’re experiencing downtime by simply visiting their website here. On this page, all the information about the Activision servers will be displayed.
You can also check for planned downtime of the COD MW2 servers on their Twitter, which you can find here. Any planned maintenance or updates will be announced.
As a final option, to check the server status of COD MW2, you can always have a look at downdetector. This website works with both the servers and other users to report on websites and servers that may not be working. Sometimes the issue is local rather than worldwide, and this is a good method of checking if it is just you or everyone else.
Ensure you have a good network connection
Sometimes the issue can be with you and your situation. If you have a bad internet connection, you may find that you are unable to connect to the COD MW2 servers. I would recommend resetting your router.
Simply locate the router in your building and turn the power off. Keep the power off for a minute before switching it back on again. You should be able to reconnect and hopefully access the servers once more.
Check for updates
Ensure your game is running the most up-to-date version of the game. On PC, you should select the game you are playing. With the Battle launcher, select the cog wheel beside the game and check for updates. On Steam, you should right-click on the game in your library, select manage, and locate check for updates.
