Due to instability issues and frequent crashes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was met with mixed reviews. Despite this, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (COD MW2) was commercially successful, earning $800 million in three days and becoming the fastest game in the Call of Duty franchise to gross over $1 billion. Using Steam’s data, we can infer the total number of COD MW2 players across all platforms, as it is currently the eighth most played game.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Players
Thousands of players from all over the world compete in online matches of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, making it one of the most popular first-person shooters in gaming right now. With so many options, some players are intimidated by the game’s lock-on launcher, the JOKR. Using this weapon could result in a sudden explosion that wipes out your opponent. The user of this launcher, however, is rarely the one who must fear for their own safety.
A player on Reddit going by the handle Downbikachu in Modern Warfare 2 was unlucky enough to be attacked by their own weapon, the infamous JOKR. It’s not the first time someone has eliminated themselves in Modern Warfare 2, but it’s still a great laugh and worth a quick look. Downbikachu’s JOKR launch initially succeeded, but it comically spiraled back toward the player after a brief distance. As the projectile hurtles toward Downbikachu, the horror of the situation sets in and all he can do is scream before his voice is silenced.
Much other Modern Warfare 2 players must have found the clip entertaining, as it has received over 2,000 upvotes on Reddit as of this writing. It stands in stark contrast to the impressive JOKR kills that some players have accomplished. At the end of the video, when Downbikachu sees that he can’t avoid his own attack, we see how easily even the most assured players can be caught off guard by an unexpected development in the game.
The player base for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is only expected to grow larger this year, and as a result, more players will join more matches in search of the elusive “viral kills” that has helped keep the franchise’s fan base alive and well. While some eliminations are noteworthy for their skill and strategy, others stand out for being comical or outrageous. The Call of Duty series seems to always provide a foundation for many gamers to capture some great in-game content, whether it’s a victory achieved through some unorthodox or accidental means, or a player accidentally killing themselves with a massive rocket launcher.

The controller you’re using may affect whether you use the standard button configuration or a more strategic one. The action in Modern Warfare 2 is fast-paced, and there are many opportunities to slide, dive, crouch, and go prone. If you’re playing with a regular controller, the tactical layout is what you want, as it lets you crouch, slide, and dive with minimal thumb movement. If you are using a controller that allows you to remap the buttons, such as a Scuf, then you can leave this as is.
