Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is enjoying a successful launch, but fans aren’t happy with everything the developers have implemented in the game. Modern Warfare 2 allows Crossplay and cross-progression, just as in the previous Call of Duty games.


However, many players, especially Xbox and PC gamers, are quite frustrated with how this Crossplay has been implemented. They’re constantly wondering if it is possible to turn off Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Crossplay.


Let’s take a detailed look at Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2’s Crossplay



Can We Disable Modern Warfare 2 Crossplay?



Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 players on Xbox and PC rapidly realize that they cannot stop Crossplay. On the other hand, PlayStation players can easily disable Crossplay. This has frustrated many Modern Warfare 2 players. 



Some people would want to disable Crossplay in Modern Warfare 2 because it gives some advantages to the opponents playing on consoles. The main reason is the advanced aim assist that is available for console players. 


Another reason why players are quite annoyed is the fact that the option to disable Crossplay was actually present during the open beta phase. After the beta ended, this option was removed from Modern Warfare 2 on PC and Xbox.


So, in a nutshell, you can not disable Modern Warfare 2 Crossplay. There are ways to work around this in an Xbox's system settings, but it doesn't always work, and Xbox players frequently find themselves with long queue times for matchmaking instead.


On the other hand, PC players do not even have a workaround. They will be forced to play with console players who have aim assist.



Modern Warfare 2 Crossplay on Playstation


If you are playing Modern Warfare 2 on Playstation, then you are in luck. You can simply disable the Crossplay in the game’s settings. 



So in order to disable Crossplay on PlayStation, follow the steps below:


  • Open Modern Warfare 2, then press the Options button on your controller at the main menu. 
  • Navigate to the Account and Network section of Settings.
  • Here, you will see the option to toggle Crossplay on and off. 



If you do not want to play against PC players, then it is advised that you turn Crossplay off on your Playstation console.





So we have covered everything about the Modern Warfare 2 Crossplay fiasco. It is quite evident that Activision will soon implement the crossplay toggle option in Modern Warfare 2 via an update. 



There has been some outcry regarding this, and if Activision doesn’t implement this change, they will make the case quite worse.
