What is ranked mode in MW2?
Ranked play is a more intensive and competitive part of the game, designed to give the most competitive players somewhere to compete and earn ranks. Ranked play has been a part of the Call of Duty series for years, and a fan-favourite feature of MW2.
The MW2 ranked mode had Treyarch leading development on it, and works similarly to how CDL matches are played. That means four-player teams, objective game modes, and limits on your available weapons and equipment.
