Modern Warfare 3 Beta Weekend 2 Patch Notes are finally here. Let’s take a look at all the upcoming changes to the game.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is the most anticipated game of 2023. The newest title of the MW reboot saga was revealed in CoD Next 2023. After the event, players were given access to the beta to test new game features.

The first Beta weekend was exclusively for PlayStation users. The early access beta for PC and Xbox, and the open beta for PlayStation are now live. With the commencement of beta weekend 2, players will receive new in-game changes, such as UIX updates and weapon adjustments.

Moreover, the beta weekend 2 update features the most requested enemy nameplate feature to improve the in-game visibility issue. The Striker SMG from the weapon pool has been nerfed to maintain competitive integrity.
