With the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta just over the horizon, thousands of players will soon be receiving their beta code to get early access to the game.
Whether players are on PlayStation, Xbox, or PC, they will likely need a beta code to get in unless they digitally pre-ordered the game. In that case, players will just be able to download the beta from the MW2 application on their system. Players that did not digitally pre-order will need to redeem a specific code in order to get the actual beta code that lets them play MW2 early.
Essentially, you will receive two codes: one that you enter on Activision’s website and the other that you enter on your system to actually get access to the MW2 application. You will receive the first code from whatever source you pre-ordered the game from. Whether that’s through a retailer, Xfinity, or through a giveaway, this is the code that you will have first.
If you have that code, you can follow our steps below to redeem it and ensure you have access to the Modern Warfare 2 beta.
Redeem Modern Warfare 2 beta code
With your code in hand, you want to follow these steps:
- Go to the Call of Duty MW2 page and press “Redeem Code”
- Make sure you’re logged in under the Activision account you want to play the beta
- Enter your 12-digit code in the first box, pick your desired platform in the second box, and choose your country in the third box
- Press “Redeem” and you should see a message saying your code will arrive via email before the beta begins
If everything was done correctly, you should receive an email from Call of Duty that gives you another code to enter into your system’s store page. This is the code for the MW2 beta application. Once that has been redeemed on your system, you can download the beta application and wait for the beta to begin. So make sure you’re frequently checking your email for that all-important beta code.
