Players who have been infected must hunt down other players or spread their illness to other players to participate in this mode. Players who have been infected by survivors will alter. The player who is infected wins the game if all survivors are infected. But if one of them lives until the allotted period, survivors will win the game.

Due to their increased agility and access to knives, infected gamers can cross enormous distances very rapidly. To shoot the infected, however, survivors must go near because they only have conventional weapons, such as the 680 rifle type. Naturally, this becomes increasingly challenging as more players acquire the infection and the odds begin to favor the enemy.

Well, that was how you played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Infected Mode. You can use the above-mentioned methods if you wish to try the new mode if that is how it is returning.
