Call of Duty Modern Warfare multiplayer is FREE from 6pm tonight for a limited time

GAMERS can enjoy Call of Duty Modern Warfare's multiplayer mode without having to pay a penny this weekend.

Usually you'd have to pay more than £40 for the full game – but Activision is offering a "free access" weekend.

You'll be able to play from 6pm on Friday night UK time – or 10am PT.

If you own the game, it means you'll be able to play with pals who don't.

And if you do decide to buy the game down the line, your progress will be retained on your account.

So any levels you earn or loadouts you create won't simply disappear.

"If you haven’t played Modern Warfare Multiplayer, now’s the chance to see what you’ve missed," said Activision in a blog post.

"Experience the world-class gameplay, deep weapon customisation, and gritty, photorealistic environments that make Modern Warfare Multiplayer the ultimate online playground."

So how do you get involved?

You'll need to download Warzone, which is the free spin-off Call of Duty game.

It's a bit like Fortnite – a massive 150-player battle royale set in the Call of Duty universe.

The game is proving hugely popular, and is free even beyond this weekend.

But you'll need to download that game to be able to navigate to the Multiplayer portion of Call of Duty.

Official Call of Duty tips

Activision has released these tips for various Call of Duty game modes…

  • Team Deathmatch: Straightforward, but deadly. Teams of six go toe-to-toe to collect the most kills. The manner of death doesn’t matter, so shoot, launch, and toss grenades to your hearts’ content. The first team to reach 70 kills takes the victory!
  • Kill Confirmed: Team Deathmatch gets a high-stakes twist, where killed players drop dog tags. Collect teammates’ dog tags to deny your enemies’ kills and pick up your enemies’ dog tags to earn points for your team. The first team to earn 70 points (collect 70 dog tags), also collects the W.
  • Domination: Three flags are set on the map, each in a static location. Players compete to “capture” each flag for their team by occupying the flag zone for 10 seconds. Flags can be highly contested and captured often, especially on smaller maps. Always check your six.
  • Hardpoint: Like Domination, players must “capture” a location. However, instead of a flag, the objective is a rotating map zone, or ‘hardpoint,’ that moves to a different area every 45 seconds. Hold down the hardpoint and get a point for every second your team occupies it. If members of both teams are in the hardpoint, the zone becomes contested and no one scores. First team to 250 points wins.
  • Headquarters: Similar to Hardpoint, teams rush to “capture” a rotating objective – the headquarters. Capture and hold the headquarters to earn points for your team. The team the holds the HQ doesn’t respawn. The first team to 200 points wins.

Just go into the Warzone lobby and look for the 'Stocked Up, Locked Down' 24/7 playlist.

This lets you play on two original Modern Warfare multiplayer maps: Atlas Superstore and Shoot House.

You'll be able to play a selection of game modes, including Team Deathmatch, Domination and Hardpoint.

The free access weekend runs out at 6pm UK time on Monday, April 6.

However, if you want to play beyond that – or play all game modes and maps – then you'll need to purchase the full Call of Duty game.
