Thankfully, Call of Duty MW3 and MW2 servers are up. The previous issue was resolved as of 5:00 PM EST. Not only were players locked out of the campaign, but those hoping to jump into other CoD games while they waited were also out of luck.

That’s all behind us now, and with any luck the game should be back up and running with minimal issues.

Now that you can get into the game, we have some early guides for you to check out. It’s not going to be easy to hunt down Makarov and his forces on higher difficulties, so you might as well take advantage of some free know-how before you join the fight yourself.
