Modern Warfare 2 on PC Gets Dedicated Servers…Sort of

1 min read


When Infinity Ward confirmed the lack of dedicated servers for Modern Warfare 2, many gamers flew in to  fits of nerd-rage, threatening boycott, crying and generally being quite emo. Others saw Infinity Ward’s locking down of the game as a challenge.

Well, the enterprising others have prevailed, as they’ve managed to hack in a dev console allowing them to set up, yes – dedicated servers. What comes as quite a slap to Infinity Ward’s face is that these dedicated servers are still considered legal on IWNet, meaning players can still earn XP and rank up. As an added kick to the nuts, these “dedicated servers” allow for cheats, as evidenced by the video after the jump.

As far as we can tell, the 9v9 player limit is still in place, but at least you’ve now got functional dedicated servers. Baby steps.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
