Modern Warfare 2 MW2: what’s new in update 1.04?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 MW2 will be released soon. Before that, the developers released a new update 1.04 - the 2nd major update before the release. Here, we’ll shows you all the changes and fixes in this patch.


When is the new update coming? The 1.04 is now available to download.


How big is the update? The reports on this are currently very different. Xbox players sometimes report 60 GB, we had an update of 20 GB on the PS5. If you have previously loaded update 1.03, only 2 GB could be available.


What's in the update? The developers state that many of the current changes are based on player feedback on the beta:


Enemy Visibility

- New icon over enemy heads

- Adjusted light and contrast settings on the player models
