The Modern Warfare 2 PC beta system requirements are finally here, allowing you to get a sense of your performance before jumping into the game on September 22. Call of Duty games have always strived to look their best, and this year it looks like this is no different, so you might potentially need an upgrade to make the most of the game's stunning visuals. So, to find out the full Modern Warfare 2 PC beta system requirements, make sure to carry on reading down below.

Take a look at the MW2 minimum system requirements for the PC beta below:

  • OS: Windows 10-64 bit (latest update)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3570 / AMD Ryzen 5 1600X
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 / AMD Radeon RX 470
  • Video Memory: 3GB
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Storage: 25GB
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
  • Recommended Graphics Drivers: Nvidia 516.79 / AMD 21.9.1

While there is no indication of what exactly these minimum specs will bring you performance-wise, it is good to know that the latest Call of Duty isn't too out of the water with its requirements. 

One thing to note in addition is that you must have a mobile phone number linked to either your Steam or Battle.net account in order to play the Modern Warfare 2 beta, so make sure to do that too.

If you're looking for the Modern Warfare 2 PC beta recommended system requirements though, make sure to check out the list below:

  • OS: Windows 10-64 bit (latest update)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K / AMD Ryzen 7 1800X
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 / AMD Radeon RX 580
  • Video Memory: 3GB
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Storage: 25GB
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
  • Recommended Graphics Drivers: Nvidia 516.79 / AMD 21.9.1

 

Again, if Steam hardware surveys are anything to go buy, this is a fairly respectable set of recommended specs that most players should be able to meet. Much like the minimum specs, there is no indication of any benchmark for these components, but basing it off the beta for Vanguard, you should be able to achieve 60FPS at 1080p on medium to high settings. 

If you're looking towards features like Ray Tracing and DLSS though, you will need a compatible card, and a beefy one in particular if you're looking towards enhanced lighting and reflections. 

Additionally, as it is a first-person shooter, you are obviously going to benefit from having as many frames as possible, especially with a high refresh rate monitor, so whatever gains you can make over these recommended specs will be reflected positively in your performance.

So, that wraps it up for the Modern Warfare 2 PC beta system requirements, giving you an overview of the minimum and recommended specs for the game before you jump in. If you're wanting to know the full Modern Warfare 2 beta dates though, look no further than our guide.
