Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's 2022 release will bring back a third-person camera, a feature that the popular military shooter series has not seen in some time. This point of view will have its critics, but there is certainly a segment of the MW2 community that will appreciate the new perspective.
In the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Beta, how do I enable a third-person camera?
The only way to get a third-person camera view in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta is to play one of the designated playlists that have the third-person view enabled in its game modes. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, the early access beta has not added any of the third-person views. Only the standard first-person shooter game modes such as Team Deathmatch, Domination, and the newcomer Prisoner Rescue and Knockout modes are available.
When these third-person modes are added to the beta, the objectives will remain the same as in previous Call of Duty modes. The only thing that will change is your perception of your Operator. Obviously, this will not change much, though, as aiming down the sights on your weapon will allow you to be more accurate with your shooting.
Even if you have no third-person views in the game yet, you may modify the field of view. Scroll down to 3rd Person Field of View and adjust the value. This may alter your framerate if new modes are introduced.
The extent to which you find these third-person modes enjoyable will depend on your personal preference. When you are in this mode, you'll likely have a bit more difficult time attempting to see distant foes. However, discovering what's hidden behind you will be much simpler than in first person.
