Setup Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Split Screen
The usual reply when you get from communities when you want to play Fortnite split-screen or other popular games is that they cannot be played like traditional couch co-op titles. But that is not true for the latest COD game. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare split-screen gameplay is totally possible officially.
If you want to play split-screen with your friends during the campaign, it is quite simple. All you need to do is get two controllers paired up. Players have reported that this method works only on Xbox and PS4. If you are on PC, you are out of luck unless it is a bug that needs fixing.
- Connect your second controller to your Xbox/PS4.
- Start Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
- Head to the Campaign menu
- If a second controller is connected, it will show a prompt to connect in-game.
- Press A/X on the second controller depending on what system you are on.
Congratulations, you will now be able to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare split screen. Do note that an Activision account is necessary if you want to play co-op. Make your friend login to his Activision account once you setup Call of Duty: Modern Warfare split-screen for the first time.
For those who want to play multiplayer, it is not currently possible. However, there may be a change to the Spec Ops mode. Currently, the game does not allow split-screen even though it is a co-op mode. The mode is likely to see a revisit with split-screen capabilities being added.
